I’ve been to a few places around the world before having kids and back then those places seemed like amazing destinations and so much fun. However it’s a completely different ball game when you’re a mother of two planning family vacations. Now our holidays have to be kid friendly which means everything from flight time, hotel location, to restaurants and play areas/parks or kids activities. Of course most importantly the safety and security of our kids.

My kids have a serious obsession with water and bath time is definitely the perfect end to their day. They generally spend 20 – 30 minutes in the tub playing and having fun. It’s also sort of relaxing for us knowing it’s closer to bed time!
We normally just give them a quick wash in the mornings and save the bath time for the evenings, as we noticed it helps them sleep better.

What a lot of people don’t know is I was very depressed and overwhelmed during my second pregnancy. Adam was about 6 months old when we found out we were expecting our second baby. Different emotions went through my head but one that stood out and was more evident was my depression. I tried to keep it to myself as much as I could but then some days I just couldn’t and I would just vent out to my husband or mother. Trust me, we were excited about having another baby and Adam having a little brother/sister to play with, but we were too worried and scared to see it clearly then. Actually I think just me.

If you’re following me on instagram then you already know this but if you are not then let me start by saying I’m a stay at home mum 🙂
“So what do you do all day?” …
Is it just me or do all stay at home mums get asked that question ALOT? How do you answer it? What do you say? Does it get to you? Or do you just ignore it?

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.
