babies in action

Dear Fellow Babies,

OK, here’s my situation. My Mommy has had me for almost 5 months. The first few months were great. I cried, she picked me up and fed me, anytime, around the clock. Then something happened. Over the last few weeks, she has been trying to STTN (sleep thru the night). At first, I thought it was just a phase, but it is only getting worse! More

What is my proudest moment of motherhood?

I once heard one say about motherhood “it’s not about being a perfect mother, it’s about doing the best you can”
So I kept trying to remind myself that there is no such thing as a perfect parent, especially that I had to do all this all alone. More

Ugh… I am putting off so much!

Even though I am on my summer break, but I feel I have so much to do and I am putting off so much I am supposed to work on. It’s just so hard to get things done, especially with a kid strapped to your hip 24/7. He always needs attention, either eating, pooping, burping or just wants to play. And if he is asleep I run and try to get things done, dishes, laundry, cooking or even catch up on my sleep.

Anyway, there are two big projects I am hoping to get done with this summer. The first one More

My birth story!


Taken by Moonlight studios

So I was anxiously going through my last trimester, waiting for my little munchkin to surprise me at anytime. I waited and waited and waited and worked until the last-minute. Everyone at school was always so surprised to see me everyday I exited the elevator door on the fourth floor and walked up to the mail room with my cup of Starbucks coffee, ya coffee, do not judge me, I needed it!!!!

What do you REALLY need?

So everyone gave me TONS of advice on what to bring and what not to bring to the hospital when I deliver.

As a FTM (First Time Mom) I was kind of lost and confused, it was very hard. The list kept growing and so I started to pack and pack AND pack… well it turned out to fill about a whole suitcase, you know one of them big ones. So I decided to use my Shnoodles More

A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?”

“Because I’m a woman,” she told him.
“I don’t understand,” he said.
His Mom just hugged him and said, More

What’s your hidden talent?


Definitely not singing as my sister Yasmeen says :D

I like fashion, love shopping, enjoy photography and practice writing but I don’t really think they are talents.  I can’t really pin-point a normal “human being” talent!!!!!

But I have the ability to remember a lot about a person just by having a 10 minute conversation with them. I do not know if this counts as a talent?!

Everybody from my family, friends and even my husband makes fun of me how I know “everyone and their brother”. I do not do this for gossip, I actually despise gossip, but I like to know about people’s history and background just for the sake of knowing.

I know its weird but I swear I am not a stalker :S More
