Mummy is Spoiling the Kids!

We have the luxury of my parents helping us take care of #JasperBean when we’re working. However, as a mum, I do worry that grandparents are spoiling him rotten (as did my grandma with me). And guess who would have to deal with the consequences? Yours truly…”


All too often, when we pick up #JasperBean, I wouldn’t say I get a “complaint“, but I’m usually greeted with. “He’s been such a good boy today, but as soon as you show up, he throws a tantrum, Continue reading “Mummy is Spoiling the Kids!”

Nursery Christmas Concert Gone Wrong

When was the first time your little one was cast in a Christmas Concert? How did it go? Do you think back on it fondly? Or hope it had never happened?

We recently attended #JasperBean’s Christmas Concert and like the previous year, we (me and S) were very excited! We practised Jingle Bells and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star until we could sing no more. I even brought materials to make his outfit instead of buying the bog standard supermarket Christmas outfits. Our little star was promoted from a sheep last year to a star this year! We basically couldn’t wait for our little one to sing his heart out, but again, we should have known, that it wouldn’t go according to plan. Continue Reading!

A Mother’s Patience and How Not To Lose It

Many a times #JasperBean has tested my patience some days, most days everyday… he would suddenly start crying and throw massive tantrums from no where and no matter how much I calmly speak to him, he just wouldn’t stop or even let me know what has upset him so much.

Like many mummies out there, I’ve discovered that I have reserves of patience that I didn’t know existed. Continue Reading!

No longer sleeping together (co-sleeping)

For 26 months, we co-slept with #JasperBean and it worked for us. In the beginning, in order to get him to fall asleep I would have to hold him. That slowly transitioned to holding hands and then pretending to sleep to lull him in. I was a master at getting him to sleep and I had no problems with it. I gradually let him have his daytime naps in his cotbed sleeping alone and hadn’t had any issues with this. No power struggle, no tears or kicking up a fuss as long as he knew I was in the room with him. Night time was different. Continue reading “No longer sleeping together (co-sleeping)”

MW received a Blogger Recognition Award!

Blogger Recognition AwardI’ve never been one of those lucky people who won prizes, or recognition. So when I received a comment on my blog post Play is not just “Child’s Play” from Yan Ru, a fellow blogger from Yanrula informing me that she has nominated my blog for the Blogger Recognition Award. I seriously was shocked and couldn’t believe my eyes! I had to re-read it a couple times through just to make sure it was real.
