How to survive maternity leave without going broke

How to survive maternity leave without going broke

It’s been 5 months since my baby was born, and about two months since returning back to the land of the working class. I received my first salary in February since my maternity leave ended and it was so nice to have a salary again after four months of none. It really made me appreciate having a job (even though I really didn’t want to go back) and being able to buy the things I

I’ve always been one to keep our family tradition of celebrating family birthdays, my dad loved it, my mom always holds a little birthday party, my extended family is big on family birthday gatherings, but Zahir’s family… not so much, so they will usually have a quiet supper or lunch at their home with the immediate family … no mess no fuss so very quickly Zahir had to adjust of my crazy family birthday bashes

My thoughts on Co-Sleeping

My thoughts on Co-Sleeping

When I first became pregnant with the twins, I was adamant from the get go that the girls would be sleeping in their cots, in our room, but never with us in the bed. I read a lot about sleep training and what experiences other moms were going through with their kids who also by the way said that there was no way their kids were going to sleep in the bed with them either.

Dealing with my fussy baby

Dealing with my fussy baby

When I had the girls I found that daily life was quite easy because they were calm and chilled out kids to begin with. Tazkia was a little fussy but always the same time during the day and always for a short period of time.
