Recently I have a chance to work with talented painter Natasha Kudashkina. She painted Katya’s eight month pregnant belly. Take a look!

Rock-a-bye Baby

Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all

Baby is drowsing, cozy and fair
Mother sits near, in her rocking chair
Forward and back, the cradle she swings
And though baby sleeps, he hears what she sings

From the high rooftops, down to the sea
No one’s as dear, as baby to me
Wee little fingers, eyes wide and bright
Now sound asleep, until morning light.

What does it mean to be a mom? To give sacrifice, devotion, your heart, your mind, your energy and soul. To love with a never-failing love, to give strength and sweet security. To mix hard work together with fun. To be a miracle. To be a mom. I want to devote this to all mothers. Cheers to us! :)

Vinnie the Pooh

….. So, now that that worriment is out of the way, we can return to Pooh, who has chosen a blue balloon to cunningly blend in with the sky, and is rolling around in a very muddy place to disguise himself as a small black cloud, to blend in with the other small black clouds. And once he has become sufficiently muddy he takes hold of the balloon and floats up 20 feet into the air ….

My kids love this story :)



Several days ago my dear friend Elena became a mother third time!! She already has two boys and now she has a little girl! I’m very happy for her and her family. Can’t wait to see and congratulate her personally!
