Hana Turns 2 – Dubai Bowling Center

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!

Adam Starts School & My Fears!

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?

Diaper Rash

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.

Emirates Park Resort

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.

LG Twin Wash

Seriously, whoever came up with the idea behind the LG Twin Wash is a genius! I love doing laundry but it’s such a pain when you have a small washing machine but a big dryer. That means you put the first load of clothes in the machine then put the second and only then you put both the loads in the dryer! Imagine how much time you would save with the Twin Wash! It also has a built in dryer! What else could you ask for?! Oh wait for it… it also connects to your phone – you can do laundry literally from anywhere!! 😮😄

Fathers Bonding With Their Little Ones

There’s no feeling that could compare to holding your little one for the first time after they’re born. It’s the beginning of a beautiful bond. Mothers are always encouraged to do skin to skin which has extraordinary benefits to both mum and baby. It’s creates a bond and makes the baby feel safe, amongst many other things. But what about the fathers? Shouldn’t the bond between them and their little one be as equally important?
