Yes yes I know!!! It is almost mid-December and yours truly is only *just* playing catch-up with her annual Thanksgiving post. Better late than never I say. In all fairness, this Thanksgiving was particularly challenging — hubs was away and I was working hard to juggle both munchkins (with the... Continue reading

Tonight munchkin and I did a fun school project at home, as part of a homework series that he must complete by “Half Term” (a British school thing). The objective was to “Research and write about a celebration from another country." We had just been back from a trip to... Continue reading

Halloween has officially come and gone, and this Mamma is actually OK with that! How can I not be when: (1) work has been ramping up to be incredibly busy and; (2) we are en route to Tulum!!! Every year, I spend a considerable amount of my time fretting about... Continue reading

It’s that time of the year!!! Hubs always gets a bit cross with me right around this moment each year, where he accuses me of “losing the plot” because I am just too keen to dress up the kids in various costumes. What can I say, they just look too... Continue reading

In an instant.... a mere flash — we went from the beginning of October (anniversary celebration!) to nearly the end (Halloween!!). How did that all happen so quickly? Is this just part of getting older? I always think that I will write more when I have “my down time”... “peace... Continue reading

OMG — October is here already (4Q18)!!! Eeks. This year has officially flown by so quickly by it’s just insane. I can absolutely attest to the fact that September was simply INSANE. Summer was nuts on its own merits and went by much too quickly (Summer Camp! Turning 5!! Shelter... Continue reading

Hello and happy September!!! It’s hard to believe the August is officially behind us (what?) and summer is officially OVER. Doesn’t Labor Day always mark the last days of summer? And isn’t there also some rule about wearing whites about Labor Day. ☺️ We’ve covered some tremendous grounds over the... Continue reading

This little one turned five officially!!! Whoa — half a decade, seriously where has the time gone?

Hello hello! It’s hard to believe that summer is nearly over (okay we still have a few weeks to go)... but that little man only has (gasp!) one more week of summer camp left!!! So what this means... is that our little escapade to Cancun was literally seven weeks ago,... Continue reading

Hello hello! One thing that I’ve wanted to do for a long time is to start a Book Club series for little ones. My four year old (soon-to-be five!) is a voracious reader, and every night, if hubs and I make it home in time for bed time, we pick... Continue reading

July is almost at an end but one thing that I definitely want to capture for the month was the FIFA World Cup 2018. Every four years (see my World Cup post circa 2014), this tremendously exciting thing takes over our lives (okay more accurately MY life) for about a... Continue reading

This post is dedicated to my partner-in-crime — aka the best dad! Behind every strong woman… there is always an amazing man (or is it the other way around?). To be honest, I would be lying if I told you that this whole partnership and marriage thing is easy, because... Continue reading

Munchkins at the movies -- Wakanda Forever -- how sweet it is! When was the last time YOU’ve been to the movies? These days, my movie interaction comprises of: (1) anything streamed (interrupted) and/or (2) anything I can watch on the plane before I inadvertently fall asleep… I suppose that’s...

Happy Mother’s Day to all of my Mammas out there! It’s funny that we only get one day to celebrate everything that we do, but so it goes. This is my sixth year celebrating mother’s day as a “mum” of sorts. Crazy huh? I still remember my very first post... Continue reading

TGIF! Whew — another busy busy week went by. So much so that I really haven’t had much of a chance to slow down and do much else. I saw this look while passing through on Houston in a car on my way home from work (which is almost a... Continue reading
