Who thought I would reach a point where I would actually know more than 20 dinosaur names? Thanks to my little paleontologist, mama now knows more about dinosaurs and of course when his birthday was approaching, it was a given it would be a Dinosaur theme!

How cool is that?? I had no idea I could throw a birthday party at a REAL fire station!! So initially we had agreed on a staycation with Adam and something super small with the family. Then literally 3 weeks before his birthday, his highness decides he wants a party!
Thanks to everyone’s help and suggestion, I came to know about Al Manara fire station, I went the same day and they told me they were fully booked!!! LUCKILY while I was there someone had called to cancel their booking on Friday 8th February (Adam’s birthday was on a Sunday 10th February) I was super happy and couldn’t believe our luck! So we had a venue! Now I had to find someone to cater, someone to provide us with furniture, entertainment and of-course cake / desserts.

I am normally the type that panics and goes crazy before the kid’s birthdays, trying to get everything organized and done before the day. Then on the day itself, I stress even more trying to make sure nothing goes wrong and the kids have fun. This is SUPER exhausting!!
So when Dubai Bowling Center said they could do Hana’s 2nd Birthday party there, I was relieved! But it wasn’t till the day itself that I was so so grateful for the DBC team!

God knows it’s a struggle keeping the little ones entertained in the summer! Normally it’s parks, backyards and lots of outdoor activities but with the heat, it’s impossible!
I’m always on the look out for new indoor play areas to make the summer fun and not so repetitive. This week we checked out the awesome and newly opened Dig It in The Souk Springs. If your little ones are fans of Bob The Builder or just building & constructing in general, they will absolutely love this place! It’s based on a real life construction site so it is super fun.

I am honestly so emotional at the thought of my son starting school in September inshallah. I am excited but also scared as h*ll!!
This will be the FIRST time ever I leave my son with someone that’s not my mum or husband and I am not sure I like that feeling right now. I am very attached to my kids and of course being a stay at home mum means I am there for them 24/7. The thought of having someone else take care of him for 6 hours a day is scary.
How do you trust them?

Seriously where did the time go? As Adam’s second birthday was approaching, I couldn’t help but get so emotional. He was my first! My first birth, my first baby, my first breastfeeding, my first teething; my first everything. He made me a mother. He changed my life completely in seconds and I thank him everyday for that.

If you ask me about my childhood, I can tell you I don’t remember my life before my brother. All my memories are with him and that’s what I hope Adam feels when he’s older. The gap between my brother and me is almost the same as Adam & Hana.

Going to the park with Adam is like getting ready for a marathon! I mean literally! Whereas Hana just falls asleep after few minutes
We found a new park that so far has no dogs whatsoever, it’s a bit of a walk from our house (compared to the other one) but it is definitely worth it. Adam can play in peace and we can feel safe while he does so!

I’ve always loved online shopping, only difference is now it’s mostly for my little ones rather than myself…… Okay well I still shop for myself too but not as much 😄
You will notice most of the stores I’ve listed below are ones I use to shop personally from which also turned out to have a Kids section:) How perfect?!

It definitely varies from baby to baby. Some babies start solids as early as 4 months whereas some start at 6+ months. Both my babies started solids at 4 months. Why? Because they were ready. How did I know?
