Never in a million years would have I thought that having a child would change the way I react to different situations.

Mom’s guilt has great power over us. You always worry if your kid is alright. You do whatever it takes to keep your kid safe, but you know that you have to step back one day so they learn to make mistakes. Once you loosen a little bit, something happens. Your kid gets hurt. You feel like crap. Then you are all over him and you make sure he’s alright and comforting… Read More

Wow! How time is flying by so fast. In 2 more months you will be 1 year old. This makes me sad because you will no longer be considered as a baby. You will be graduating to toddlerhood. In the same time, I am so proud of you. You have accomplished so much! You are walking with a walker since you’re 9 month old. Now you’re almost running with it and I… Read More

Being bored with a kid is impossible. Every day is a new adventure. Yesterday he didn’t sleep through the night, last night he did. Go figure. Looks like it’s impossible to know when he will sleep. Maybe he’s just slowly transitioning. Today he’s been a bit grumpy. I think his teeth are bothering him. It looks like all the four top teeth are coming out at the same time. Poor baby. Tylenol… Read More

Well, that was disappointing. The sleep through the night was just one-off. He woke up a 2 am as usual and didn’t just want his pacifier, he wanted his bottle. The good thing is that on weekends, my husband wakes up to do the night shift and lucky for him, after his bottle, he went back to sleep easy. Why doesn’t he do that for me too? Why can’t he go back… Read More

Sometimes, when you least expect it, things happen in your favour.

Today was quite challenging mentally for me. Of course, being tired doesn’t help. My son decided that he doesn’t want to sleep from 2 am to 4:15 am. And over that, he’s fighting his naps during the day. He has been doing this for the past week or so. Sometimes I wish he could tell me what’s going on. Perhaps it’s teething, maybe it’s a stomach ache, or possibly just because he… Read More

Whether it’s the baby’s difficulty falling asleep or, as a parent, the lack of sleep, this seems to be an issue that as parents have in common.

Who knew that a month would change you so much. Within a month you perfected your crawling and mommy and daddy have to run after you constantly to keep you out of things you shouldn’t touch. For some reason, you love the floor air vents… You started to get attached to things you are holding and pull some tantrum when we try to take it away. You also love jumping and every… Read More

I have recently started to listen “The mom room” podcast and let me tell you, Renee, the host, is spot on and so real about the subject of being a mom and how we can bring ourselves down easily. As a new mom, I have been putting a lot of pressure on myself. I have been very unsure of myself and questioning about my way of parenting and if I was doing… Read More

Having a baby is difficult enough, but never in the world I would have thought of raising a child during a pandemic… It is just making it even more difficult… If we could pause the newborn stage until this mess is over it would be fine, but now that my little guy is 7 months old, introducing the world to him is very difficult… His growing needs to explore is making things… Read More

Hi everyone, I know it’s been ages I haven’t posted on my blog. Things have changed a lot in my life in the past year. From being indecisive about having kids, we finally came to a decision to take the plunge and start our little family. You may wonder why out of a sudden things changed? Well… Back at the end of 2018, working with other women who have kids made me… Read More
