12/22/2014 Motherhood has made me strong but vulnerable. Childbirth left me with a wound so raw I could feel all kinds of emotions so intense and almost painful to bear. Happiness brought tears and so did anger, disappointment and hurt. It was confusing. My heart could feel more than it ever did. I cried. I laughed… Continue reading Post-Partum
When my daughter turned 3 years old, I started getting more creative (not overly) in preparing her meals. I do not mean “lets make a panda out of rice and seaweeds” creative but just “cut the oranges and use cutters on sandwiches” creative. If you have kids going to school, I’m sure you already started… Continue reading The Bento Craze
I always come across posts, blogs and group comments online about women who call themselves “full-time moms” and how tiring but rewarding the role is. Then I said wait a minute, are they referring to Moms who stayed home and didn’t leave the house to work? So does this make me a Part-time mom? I… Continue reading “Full-time Moms” – All Mothers Are!
Today marks the day we officially say goodbye to milk bottles. I had mixed emotions when I finally put away more than half a dozen of teats and bottles. I felt relieved from the daily bottle washing but at the same time I was coming to terms that my daughter is no longer a baby.… Continue reading Bye-Bye Milk Bottles
1. Blogging makes me feel connected to the world all the time! Oftentimes, I publish my blog posts through my mobile phone. 2. I’d like my kid to read my blog someday. (One reason I have certain limitations to what I discuss in here and avoid speaking “french” *wink*, but maybe I should reconsider!) 3.… Continue reading Why I Really Blog?
One of my favorite things to do with my 3 year old is Arts & Crafts. Last week they were asked to make a funky hat. I was very excited to do it with her. We made a Little Pony funky hat which she proudly brought with her to the nursery the following day. She… Continue reading Funky Hat
My daughter has a favorite stuffed animal which I bought before she was born. I kept it for awhile and gave it to her when she was about 6 months old. She has been playing with it since and it is the one thing that she always carried around with her up to this day… Continue reading Puppy x2
My 3-year old loves the outdoors. Despite the heat, she constantly asks to go out and take her scooter, bike, push-car or sometimes a remote control car. We live in an apartment and her space to play is quite limited however, our building is located along the bay and we can just come down to… Continue reading Plasma Car
We decided to go on a 3-day holiday in Abu Dhabi during Eid Al Adha. Due to conflicting schedule, we rarely have the chance to spend holidays together so we grabbed the opportunity when we did last month. One of our planned destinations was the Emirates Park Zoo which was my daughter’s main surprise. She… Continue reading A Trip to Emirates Park Zoo
I decided to share our favorite products from Mustela since we have been using these since I gave birth to my daughter. Mustela products have been her daily essentials for 3 and half years. Gentle Cleansing Gel is good for hair and body. It is gentle on the skin and eyes. We love the mild… Continue reading Growing up with Mustela
Raising a very active toddler keeps me active too. She enjoys her time at play areas but still refuses to go on her own. She still wants mommy to run around with her and that means I climb, slide and crawl into mazes too. It is exhausting but trust me, it is fun! Another play… Continue reading Funky Monkey
