Todays plan was actually to visit a very nice castle. But somehow we didn’t felt like to do so, I guess we were still exhausted from last days traveling.
So we decided to stay at home and bake some cookies for friends, it its very easy recipe, our little Èstelle did the most of it, so if you like some easy peasy hand made cookie.
Here the recipe.
- 300gr flour
- 250gr butter
- 3 pieces cheese ( triangle happy cow )
….make a dough from this all 3 ingredients.
Create desired shape of your cookies. We made a flat bowls with a hole to fill the cookies with quark. And last but not least to make it sweeter … strew on the top little bit of crumble mixture ( sugar and butter and flour ).

Here just a short video of our drive to the dentist. Me and Marcus, we needed a yearly check up and we thought we can used this opportunity to show Èstelle how it looks by the dentist. She is only 3 years old, she doesn’t really need any check up, but we believe, if there is no any reason to visit a dentist for the first time, it is much better to show it to her in fun way, she will get used to the dentist and will not be scared. So the theory, lets see the reality in the future.
Our lovely dentist was unbelievably friendly and funny, Èstelle felt there more like on the playground than in dentist surgery. Even the waiting room is amazing, with kids play area and they have also a mens waiting room with playstation and racing chair.
After check up Estelle got a toy ring and great job offer as Dental assistant.
I have a appointment for the next morning, so Estelle will join me to my appointment and do the assistant job. So wait for the next video, it will be definitively interesting.

Today is 22th of May 2017, yesterday was Estelle’s real birthday which we celebrated in privat. Today is Monday, which is delightful because Éstelle’s private home ballet lesson is always on Monday, this is a great opportunity for us to celebrate her birthday with her friends from ballet and from our Dubai community.
As we have been busy with preparing for this day since days, we were still not sure about the color and the theme of Estelle’s birthday event, my mum came with a wonderful Idea of celebrating Ésties birthday always in the same color for the next years till she will be 18. I got so much excited about this idea, last birthday was in red and white and we all loved it, why not stay with this theme for the next years, especially as my mum said, just imagine that when Estelle see anywhere this red white polka dot motive, it will always remind her her birthday and also that we infinitivally love her. It will be also very nice to have birthday pictures in the same color, we can make beautiful photo collage how the years goes by.
We spend all night with house decorating and blowing Éstelle’s new pink bouncy castel with little pool and slide, it was so big, it took us pretty long time and lets not forget that blowing up the castel was extremely loud, we did it front of the garage hopping no one will come to complain how loud it was.
The night before her birthday I told Éstelle a good night story about little princes. The princess had a birthday and wanted to have a pink bouncy castel with a slide and pink bicycle, but it was so difficult for her parents to organize all her wishes, but ……
At the morning when Éstelle woke up, she got her pink bouncy castle ……
Here the party pictures! Have fun ….

The time goes by and I promised to report about the ballet class our little Éstelle. As you may know our Èsty will be 3 years old very soon, so I assume, she is pretty small child for going to professional ballet academy, she attends the very first class for the youngest kids. We are not planing to have a prima ballerina at home, I just truly believe that for every girl is very important to adopt not only good behavior but also she should learn how to move her body properly while she grows. This is the major reason why she is visiting this ballet class.
The kids in our class are very small, parents are asked to stay and watch their little ballerinas while learning to dance. This is great opportunity to observe your child and also the teacher.
I have to say that Estelle learned a lot since she is attending the classes, her teacher is amazing, always trying to keep attention to every child and also, which I find very important, the teacher is patient but also direct, so the kids having very healthy respect to her. This I find the most difficult, keep all going well in such crazy environment as loud music and little kids running around. I am every time amazed how well she is managing keep everybodys attention. The girls having fun and we parents enjoying the view of growing kids dancing around.
I definitely recommend to every parent at least to try some dance classes for their child. You never know, maybe you will find in your kid special talent with passion for music and dance.
Yours Two and half women.
P.S: Happy birthday our lovely friend Jana! We love you and miss you!
Our Estelle visited today ballet class for the first time here in Dubai. We used to attend a music and dance classes for little children in Switzerland, but since we moved to Dubai we didn’t had the time to do so. I was very happy to find in Dubai the Harmony ballet Academy which looked to me very professional and good for little children and also not far to drive from home. My first impression of the teacher is good, she looks very professional, she was definitively ballet dancer and her communication with the kids is excellent.
Here some pictures. I will keep you up to date how much we happy with the lessons.
