All Posts, The Family

When Ayra is back home with us, she likes to sleep on our big bed at night, and usually sleep better and longer too. So we try to accommodate her sleeping style when she does fall asleep with us in our bed. This is how the three and a half of us usually sleep in […]

WW: Cooking up a storm at play

All Posts, Kids Activity, The Baby

One of the things that I wish very much to buy for Ayra is a play kitchen set, one that’s big enough for her to explore and play with. The price tag for such set say by Little Tikes is just too unfriendly for our wallet. So I improvised and created my own kitchen play […]

The Little Love He Gives

All Posts, The Mummy

We don’t do fanciful dinner dates nor buy expensive gifts. For the 10 years we are together, he showers me with practical things that makes my life better and me happy.

Vaccination Completed!
