About Me

Welcome to my blog!

I’m Isabel and I am a stay-at-home-mom to a happy little girl who I will refer to as Tutu here in my blog.

I am Colombian but I left my beautiful country 10 years ago to study. I’ve been living in Europe since 9 years, first in Italy where I made a master’s in Chemical Engineering and I now in Germany where I came 5 years ago to work on research.

Three years ago I married a wonderful German who I love with all my heart and… one year later I gave birth to my amazing daughter. She changed my life forever and I’m so grateful. You see, I never thought I was the kind of person who would like to do this stay-at-home-mom thing and I would even judge the kind of people who did, why would someone do something like that?!

Well, I have always considered myself a creative person so when my daughter was born I started reading and looking for hands on activities to do with her every day. I started to see how she was developing and I enjoyed it so much. We bonded, we laughed, we played and after one year of maternity leave I decided to keep her with me for one more year. Now that year is over and I don’t think we are any close to stop this amazing adventure.

I created this blog to journal our adventures in raising Tutu in a creative, hands on, montessori inspired environment. Not only to share it with YOU but also to keep it as a memory for my daughter.

We are a multicultural family and in our household we speak three languages – Spanish, German and English.  My daughter is starting to differentiate the three languages and she normally replies to us in the language we are speaking to her but from time to time she does mix languages in a sentence – and I must confess we try hard not to do it but sometimes we end up mixing everything up too.

So if you were wondering where the name Uno Zwei Tutu comes from is a mixture of spanish, german and toddler language. Uno means one in spanish and zwei means two in german. And Tutu, this is a nickname she gave herself when she was around 1.5 years old. Tu means you in spanish and she would always say Tu-Tu (You-You) when she wanted to do something by herself because I would always asked her “do YOU want to do it yourself?”. We found this so adorable that we kind of stick with it as a nickname.

I’ll be sharing  here our activities in both Spanish and English. I hope you find inspiration in this blog to hands on create activities for your own children.
