Charging the Batteries as a Family

Finnish has a few great words and one of them is “kalsaripäivä”, the “underpants day”. We had a couple of those during the holidays after Christmas, we just charged the batteries, and loved it: kids got out of their pj’s at noon, we read, kids watched children’s programmes, played a few board games and played with magic sand, ate some time something… in the midst of a full life, these days felt good!

Happy to notice kids have grown enough to make such days possible again. Highly recommended some times!


  1. That is very cute!!

  2. Love those kinds of days! And it’s a fantastic word 😀
