ABOUT ME

Hi there! I’m Tani De Gregorio. The one behind this little blog. ‘Our big Dubai adventure’ started about three years ago when I quit my job in a multinational in Switzerland to follow my husband to sunny Dubai where we are living now with our two little munchkins, Luca (3) and Maëva (nearly 2).

This blog is not about the glamorous life of an expat wife. There’s just too many baby wipes and too few high heels in my life for that.

Instead, it’s about our daily adventures in the sandpit. About motherhood away from home. It’s about the kids. About fun things for them to do. Things you might not have heard of otherwise. It’s about workshops. And cool places to explore. In this amazing city we call home. At least for a little while…

Beautifully said, exactly how I feel, I am in first trimester and I have a 2 year old boy. Due to the first trimester symptoms and not being able to lift him up, he is suddenly in the mood for mama go awaaaaayyyyy! Or mama stay here and he points to the mat, I try to play with him as much as I can, but it’s that moment when he sleeps at night is when I miss him the most and wonder, did I show him in every way possible how much I adore him?

What a beautifully written story, or maybe explanation is a better word. Especially this part – “And it is about being told to go away and to be there instead. To stay. To be closer than ever.”

So true…X

Oh it’s just the worst feeling when Daddy is the cool one they want to be with, because you are jealous but also so happy to see the daddy son bond strengthen. I am sure Luca knows that his mummy loves him very much, and you are doing such a great job of parenting both with so much love and care!

I completely understand the feeling. Now that my son is 9 years old, my baby boy love now only has secrets with Daddy. He would tell me “Mom, can you please go first I need to talk to Daddy”
Breaks my heart all the time!
