Toys your Toddler needs!

As toddler moms, we’re always looking for the next best activity to keep your little one busy. Ebad and I are pretty good about not buying too many toys, but I do read lots of reviews when I do invest in one. More than just a toy, I want it to be an activity that Zidaan can enjoy and do multiple things with.

My One Year Old's Ramadan

Ramadan starts in a couple days! Every year Ramadan comes around, it feels like Eid was just yesterday. Although Zidaan is only 15 months old and won't remember much of anything till he's about 4, I want to start creating memories I can capture for him during Ramadan to show him when he's older. Ramadan was always special in our house growing up.

First Solids and Feeding Schedule!

It was at Zidaan's 5 months appointment that we were sent home with a blessing from our pediatrician to go forth and “start solids.” Yay, fun! You’ll go home and realize that you have NO idea what the hell you’re doing. I mean, shouldn’t the doctor give you an instruction manual — or something!? What do I feed the baby? What's the best first food?

Traveling with Baby!

Zidaan has been no stranger to traveling. His first flight was from Houston to Michigan when he was about 6 weeks. This was just a short flight from Houston to Detroit and Ebad was with me.

The baby bag was stuffed with enough baby clothes and miscellaneous supplies to last a month.

He's Almost 5 months!?

I've been slacking with this blog. Honestly y'all, I end up going radio silence here to figure out how to mom a person and work all at the same time. It’s a lot to balance, and I’m not sure if it’s going to get harder or easier as I get better at it. As of now, I'm trying my best. Phew! That said, my little man is 4.5 months old today! I figured I could just do a mini update on him and use this platform to do a little venting.

A Harry Potter Themed Shower!

You could easily say she has been *patiently* waiting for her acceptance letter from Hogwarts from the time she turned 10? Since a wizard path is not likely in her future, why not do the next best thing and bring Hogwarts to her with an adorable Potter themed baby showe

Back to work after Maternity Leave!

I really didn't want to write about this cause the wound's still pretty fresh. Maybe a few weeks from now, leaving my child at home while I go to work will be smooth sailing? Anyhoo, I had several new moms reach out to me asking how it is working with a child at home so now I feel compelled to talk about my experience.
