I said in my intro blog that it would be difficult to come up with new posts for this one in addition to what I post on my other blog. Well, maybe I'll just use this one as my "let it all out" outlet.
The thing on my mind today is co-parenting. We are a blended family. I have two kids, my hubby has one, and we are having our first one together in September. I had my first two kids when I was really young, and they have different dads. I was married to one of the dads for 8 years… Continue

What is more symbolic of summer than a barefoot child and a fishing rod? Even if your kids have never put worms on a hook (or aren't likely to wait patiently for a bite), the kicked-back mood of the angler is contagious now that the end of school is in sight. To get ready for the relaxation and recreation we all crave this time of year, we turned to a 1993 adaptation of Mark Twain's great American novel, The Adventures of Huck Finn, starring Elijah… Continue

On the face of it this may seem like a silly question. I think most parents would say something along the lines of their goal being to raise a happy, healthy, kind child that can function independently in the world as an adult. Depending on your particular beliefs, aspects of religious, spiritual, or moral teaching may be part of your answer as well. I raise this question after reading an interesting… Continue

Some days, you'd think my blog was sponsored by Trojan. But this occasional venting in no way means I regret becoming a mom. I knew from the day I tossed my Pill pack that sacrifices would be part of the deal. And I also know plenty of women who'd give their front teeth to only have it so easy.
I wear my hairy legs and deflated boobs proudly, and here's why:
1. Any given day, I can handle a thousand micro-crises and be ready for more before my childless counterparts--hell,… Continue

Hello Mom Bloggers!
I haven't belonged to a blogging network site like this before. I hope to make some friends and gain some followers for my blog. I will admit it will be difficult for me to come up with separate blogs for this than the one I already do.
I think the thing I like about blogging is that I can share my ideas with my friends and family that I may not get to talk to very often. I like being able to inform others about me. Understanding goes a long way when… Continue

I like to share this video, specially after all the things that we, as a family, had witness in the last couple of weeks.
Think Family was established in May 2006 to be a champion and advocate for the Singaporean family. They are passionate about anything and everything that makes Singapore a great place for their children to play and grow, for couples to establish homes, and for parents to enjoy their children and… Continue

Well as I promised I will share my experience of taking 3year old and 2year old swimming on Monday.
I have always been a water baby myself, when I was little it would take all my parents effort to drag me out of a swimming pool kicking and screaming, I used to love it that much. I got all my swimming badges and lifesaving awards and I loved it! I want to pass my love of water on to my girls so I bought them both swimsuits, arm bands and goggles and informed them we were going… Continue

21 ways to enjoy being a mom
1. When you're tired, hand your kids a brush, point to your head, and tell them to play beauty parlor. When you're really tired, pretend that you're Sleeping Beauty.
2. Take your mother to a spa. While you're both getting seaweed wraps, tell her all your favorite memories of growing up.
3. Take a bath with your infant. Make sure your husband is around for the handoff, so you can relax until the last minute. (Don't forget to smell your baby right… Continue

You sometimes forget how much of a blessing friends are until you have to really be there for them and see how strong your love and dedication can carry you. A very good friend of mine had a miscarriage and it seems like it was a loss for all of us. We all spent the night with her to comfort and console her, but to me, there's not enough hugs, hand-holding or words to make it better. This is one we're going to have to leave to God because only he can use hurt to heal. Please pray for us.… Continue

Time seems to be flying by. The babies are growing up - 2.5 year old and almost an 11 month old kids. I have to start thinking about me again and what I want for myself in the future. I would love a career but right now though the job market is in a horrible place. Is anyone else wondering what their future holds?
It's always been my wish to work for myself but should I do this with small businesses and big businesses suffering.
It's not all doom and gloom. I know I will look back -… Continue
