I've known Flo for a long time - unfortunately, we had lost contact. When I heard that he had a daughter, I thought I finally had a good reason to visit him and his family in Stuttgart. In the interview, they tell us about their parental leave, their needs and what they prefer to do when they have time.
Margot, 24 years old, shares her life with Thomas, who is 25. They have three children, Hyacinthe (5), Gaspard( 3) and Maïa (18 months). None of them are going to school and they grow up free on their farm and in the fields where they grow organic products.

OH LA LA MAMA visited Tine, Flo and her two-year-old daughter, Ilvy. It wasn't only about checking their appartment out, we also wanted to know about their life in Stuttgart with a child and how their lives as parents changed.

I thought, somehow, with the help of videos from the Internet, I was going to make it.
Once we knew that we were expecting twins, it was clear that our lives would change quite a bit. I had been working at the university in Friedrichshafen until that time, and with Benni we used to spend days and evenings at the lake, as he is a triathlete and water enthousiast.
