I can’t tell you how many times people told me “you must get diaper rash cream” when packing my hospital bags both times. I was lucky enough to never go through it with Adam as an infant, so whenever I would hear mums grieving about it, I couldn’t understand it because I just didn’t know what it was like or how terrible it was for little ones. Of-course all that changed with little madam.
At just 4 months Hana had a terrible rash. Hana hadn’t been herself and I didn’t know what was wrong.

Have you ever felt like you left the UAE for a little vacation when actually you haven’t? That’s how we felt during our weekend at Emirates Park Resort, located in Al Bahya. I must admit I did have very high expectations going there but that’s entirely because I had other Dubai/Abu Dhabi Hotels in mind like Atlantis, Madinat Jumeirah, St Regis etc when in reality there’s absolutely no comparisons. Emirates Park Resort is a resort connected to a zoo. It’s an experience; one I never thought we would have a chance to go through in Dubai/Abu Dhabi.

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 understand how important it is for you to take your dogs out, whether for walks or just to play. When you live in a community it’s also important to keep in mind your fellow residents.
I personally have nothing against dogs, I’m just frustrated with you owners. I’ll tell you why, and I hope you don’t take this the wrong way.

It’s that time of the year when everyone makes new year’s resolutions that they’ll probably abandon by first week of January? Or second week? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been guilty of that myself!
The best has to be my mum’s though! She decided last year that 2016 she would be a vegetarian…. well she was one for 4 days then Hardees double cheese burger happened! (Sorry maa, I love you)

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 😄

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?

The excitement of traveling with my son alone for the first time was indescribable.

I want them to learn to appreciate different cultures and lifestyles and what better way to start then going back to where their mother was born – Tanzania
