1st Year Survival of At Home MOM

It will be my 1st year anniversary as a Work/Stay At Home Mom. Oh gosh I have a lot to share about, on what to expect, the feelings, how to cope, etc. And this will be a long one so bear with me ait?
What to expect?
Laziness/tiredness..  you call it lazy, I call it TIRED la wei.
For about the first 3 months, I felt..lazy. All I wanted to do was being lazy. But that was because I was heavily pregnant, I was in my third trimester. Hahaha that explains the laziness right? I wanted to do a lot, well at least my mind was not lazy. But the energy was mostly used by the baby in the womb.
After Amal was born, I concentrated on taking care of her, with breastfeeding and constant napping. It drained the energy out of me. I was thankful though that I didn’t have to rush in to work cause I would be sad to leave Amal behind. Just like what I felt when it was with Ayra and Amna.
Despite the perk of having to be there all the time for Amal, I was/am exhausted. All freaking time. I was lacking good …

of 3 months away

ive been trying to steal some time to blog. i kept postponing it until it was almost 3 months later. really? 3 months just flew away?
we are done with Puasa, Raya and soon Raya Haji is coming. Puasa was the most tiring of all. that explained why i didnt have the time to blog!

if i were to grade myself for that Ramadhan, i would give myself 4 out of 10.  as the previous Ramadhan, i didnt get to perform tarawikh in surau or masjid.  i did it on my own every night. and to add the shame, 2 rakaat. i was like a drugged person immediately after magrib. not like we ate a lot.  i guess the hormones of breast feeding mom, plus taking care of 2 more. 
we had our first raya in my gramma's place in Klang. we travelled back to Terengganu on the second day. the children forgot about me when we were there. Mommy is only needed at night. or for meals.  so that left me some space to breathe. hahaha. not! dont forget the baby. 
so how is Lil' Tummy doing now? how long has it been now? almost a…

Lil'Tummy in Kosmo!

I received a call one fine Saturday evening from a lady. She said she was Kosmo. well, I didnt jump straight away. I knew she would want to ask something related to the event that we participated in. Probably how to spell my name, etc.
but then, she asked whether she could meet me.  she wanted to know more about Lil' Tummy and myself. How it started, how long have I been doing this etc.
I was like.. what? me? Lil' Tummy? i mean, we are barely breathing.hahaha  i dont have customer based, and I am actually kind of lost there somewhere. hahaha but, of course I said yes. come one, free marketing, who would in the right mind would decline kan?? (even though I am faaaaar from ready)
The reporter, Cik Zu, came the after that, i.e Sunday.  I didnt know what to expect, what to say, what to wear! i knew i had to wear black though.hahahahaha  it was all last minute. even the children got ready while the interview session happening!
It was fun. it was mostly on me, and how i started thi…

Glimpse of Glam

Remember I told you that the press were at our booth and they snapped many pictures  of us and the booth? 
Well,.......................... Lil' Tummy appeared in the paper!  We found it out tru my friend, who was that girl next to me in the picture. This was in Kosmo on last Saturday, 14.5.15.

The article didnt say much on Lil' Tummy. It was more on the event itself, which what it was all about right? But nonetheless, we were thrilled to see our faces, and our product in the news. can u see Amal's head?  Oh my Amal. you are just 2 months old, and now u r in the paper! hehhhe
I carried Amal in my 5 year old Baba Luna Sling. It was easier to breastfeed her that way. and less strain on my arms and i get to be mobile. my hands are mobile. my friend said i so look like a superwoman. u know, with the mumsprenuer and mommy thingie and all that? yup, kind of i guess?
hahaha.  any superwoman cannot do it on her own. a good support system is a must. in my case, my husband and my mo…

Lil' Tummy

Not too long ago, a mommy, who was working full time in a corporate world, with all the blings and dramas, decided to quit her stressful job, and just be a mom (and of course a wife).
even though she didn't know what to do financially, she did not regret at all on her decision. 
but to make sure she is doing something for herself and to support her family, she knew she had to do something. plus, she can never sits quietly and be..still.  it's not in her DNA.
after searching high and low of what she should do, and eliminating possible things that she could do, she ended up wanting to cook. cooking and baking have always been her interest. even though she may not be the world class cook or baker, the satisfaction of doing so makes her want to do it.  she loves cooking healthy meals for her children. ever since they were small, she had always prepared their meals on her own, despite her busy schedule.  for her, children should not be fed with processed, MSG packed food at all. t…
