…and I must say, had I known how much would happen during the last months, I would have told you beforehand that I would not be writing new entries here for some time.

However, I am back now, and I do have time for writing here again.

I am happy to announce that I am in the fourth month of pregnancy. My husband and I are really happy about it. And guess what, it seems that I bear twins. I did not wish to be told what gender they are, so we will see in October, if all goes well.

In the meantime, I have decided, I am going to write a little more on the subject of traditional discipline. I have thought about writing a few texts regarding the use of corporal punishment in my family during the last 100 years, as I feel that I need to delve a little into the lives of my ancestors, now that I am about to begin a new generation of the von Platen family.

I will also try something more interactive later this week, but that will need your participation. You’ll see what I mean when I inform you later.

For now, I wish you all a nice day!

Yours,

Stefanie von Platen-Wilhelms
