the melodramatic mouse is now mellomom
If you asked me a year ago, I’d probably laugh this off. But here I am a month later — bitten mid March, thanks to Dukan Diet (another post, another day!) — has become a bakerholic. For a person who’s not much of a cake fan, this sudden addiction to bake is a phenomenal self [...]
I’m here. I’m still here. Been so exhausted — sleep deprived and up at 5.30am everyday — and out of time that I’ve lost my blogging mojo. Got lots to share but just no time to put anything together. I have a few reviews lined up, photos already taken but my pc is virus ridden [...]
Very often than not, I feel like a bad mother. Especially when the kids drive me up the wall. It’s just so wrong to be mad at a 2yo and the 7mo. And it’s been getting so frequent that I’m perpetually drowning in self guilt but yet still unable to be a better person. I [...]
Gosh my last real post is almost a month ago. There are a few topics I wanted to share but can’t seem to find time to blog it down. I’m basically running out of hours in a day. As I’m typing this on my iphone now, Eli is blissfully snacking away (ahem) on me. This [...]
One of the perks of being a new mommy (again) is that we’re simply oozing with these love hormones for our newborns. The simplest of anything that these chubby darlings do would send us over the hills into gagaland. My weakness would be for those tiny fingers. I just love how Eli’s stumpy little fingers [...]
Not too long ago, I was a mother of one. Today I am already a mother of two. Indeed in three short years, I have been blessed double fold. I am now a mother to two beautiful children. A cheeky tiger boy and a little dragon girl ♥ I love how the saying that goes: [...]
I didn’t expect to wean Nate. I had ideally planned to let him outgrow the need on his own naturally. If I wasn’t pregnant, I know I would still be breastfeeding. I started by reducing 1 feed at a time — he was still having 3 — when I was 6 weeks pregnant. It was [...]
Tonight the Husband played chef again to his mousey wifey — and family too — for a sequel of his successful crabbilicious cheesy crabs to celebrate my 2nd year of being a Mommy. My Mom loves crabs too, so this was a big treat for me us all with 5 crabs over 2kg. Since my [...]
If you haven’t already know what the acronym above means, SAHM is short for Stay At Home Mom. And, if you haven’t already know — that is my label too — I am blessed with this opportunity since the birth of our darling Tiger. What’s the misconception? Generally it is what it says it is: [...]
For the first 2 months of introducing new foods to Natey, he “enjoyed” everything at its purest (taste) in forms of purees. By 8mo it was time to add a little rice — we are Asians after all — and introduce meat to the menu. That’s how I started cooking porridge for him everyday. Meal [...]
