The Conversation

This happened over the weekend. It was in the late morning and Charley was doing some jumps on the sofa while I was holding her. Suddenly, she let out some words…. Charley: OHH….Baaaaaa! *jumps, jumps, jumps Charley: Ohhhhh…MaaaaaaaMaaaaaaaa! *jumps, jumps, jumps Continues playing with saliva and making cute little sounds/ noises Elated, I turned to the sleeping papa and said: “Did you hear that? Baby is calling Mama!!” Papa: “Yup, I heard that. Good for you. Now you can carry […]

Halfway to 1.

In another few weeks dear little Charley will be turning 6 months old. 6 months old brings a totally new set of spendings required to fill this little one up. Getting this post idea from Mummy Ruth, here’s what we have/ will be prepping for Charley: High Chair: I spotted the ikea baby highchair a couple of months ago and I told myself I needed to get it! It cost between $25-$109 depending on the type you fancy and my […]

Rounding up 2013.

A year has passed in a blink of eye and here’s a summation: My bundle of joy, a baby named Charley. Becoming mum wasn’t something that I’d planned for. I also didnt think that I’ll be the first among my girls to get married and have a baby. From a working married woman to a Stay-At-Home-Mum. I left my job role after maternity to better care for my little one. My parents and in-laws are getting on in age and […]

Comparison is the thief of joy.

You know how most of the time most parents get so concerned about babies hitting their milestones..and when they don’t hit, they are not in the ‘normal’ range? Or your kid cant do his/her spelling when other kids her age could? I believed that society has moulded us into this so-called ‘kancheong’ and ‘kiasu’ parents (a hokkien slang) and this is a mental note to remind myself not to fall into this category. Because every baby is different. If we […]

The thing about Spoonfeeding.

I remembered those days where I was younger and our teachers often spoon feed us with answers. When I was much younger my mum spoon fed me because I couldn’t hold my own utensils yet. But how and when should we stop spoon feeding our young ones? Yes, we all know that we will always remain as our parent’s child even when we turn 50 but honestly there should be a stop to it? An article recently on the Sunday […]

This is only Temporary.

I’ve recently came across an article where a writer/mum writes about the these four words: This is only Temporary; which speaks about the happiness and depressions of raising a baby. Being a new mum (I considered myself fairly new since baby Charley is 4.5 months old), I can tell you that this is not an easy job. Being a SAHM is not easy, yes.. given the luxury not to miss any milestones the little one hits is pure joy but […]

Update at 3.5 months old

So I have been busying myself with Charley that I have been neglecting my blog. Taking some time to indulge myself with some chocolate and catching up on some news and music while she sleeps peacefully beside me. As the tracks played in my ears, I am suddenly brought back the the days where Charley wasn’t born yet. Don’t get me wrong, I love having her with me now but of course, I also relished being single, being married with […]

Help! The milk is on my tongue!

Just showing off her milk tongue to the rest of the world! Every morning during bath time, we would use the soft little square cloth to wipe her tongue in circles to help clean it as much as we can. Sometimes we use the cleaning wipes that fits onto our fingers that we purchased from Mothercare, but I’d only use it alternatively. One, its too costly. Two, its banana flavored and contains xylitol. Not too comfy to use it too […]

First-Time Parents

I have been so held up with taking care of Charley that I simply have close to zilch energy to blog recently. Forgive the hiatus. So what have been we been up to? Many times people wonder how could one be so busy taking care of baby. Shouldn’t bonding time be free and easy? Not quite so. I could tell you most of my time is taken up feeding and burping baby, trying to coax her to sleep, washing bottles […]
