My Summer Wedding Adventures

image

I can’t believe summer is almost to an end here in Canada. I feel like it went by so fast, does anyone else feel the same way? Alhumdulillah it’s been a great summer thus far: it started with Ramadan, and then right after Ramadan there was my sister’s wedding, then an engagement I had to go to, followed by another wedding. By the way, I never did give you all an update on how the weddings went…As you know, I was quite nervous attending a wedding with three small children…and…well…let’s just says there were a few surprises!

I’m So Awesome That…I Have A Stalker!

image

I’m so awesome that I have a stalker! This stalker follows me everywhere, and doesn’t leave my side. He knows where I’am at every time of day, and to say that he is obsessed with me would be an understatement. And guess what? I wouldn’t have it any other way because this stalker is my very own handsome baby boy!

Now, some people might accuse my son of being too ‘attached’ and ‘clingy,’ but these people don’t realize that this behaviour has nothing to do with him; and that it has everything to do with me and my AWESOMENESS! Continue reading

Hi, My Name Is Hafsah And I’m A Perfectionist

Hi, my name is Hafsah and I’m a perfectionist THIS is how my 6 year old should introduce herself! Before I go any further, just know that I love her, I really do. She’s super special and has the biggest heart. But, I’m not writing about her kindness today. Nope! Today, I will be discussing how she’s become THE ULTIMATE PERFECTIONIST!

My lovely daughter has to have everything put back into the exact place between a specific time frame. What does that mean exactly? Oh, I’ll tell you what that means: it means when we come back from an exhausting day of being outside all day, and my baby and toddler are crying because they are too tired to do anything else, Hafsah will want me to help her unzip her dress as soon as we step into the door. In fact, she tells me this when we are in the car driving home. Then, she has to have me hang the dress up in her closet right away (she can’t reach the closet bar yet). Oh, it doesn’t stop there! It has to be hung on the EXACT same hanger, in the EXACT same order it was before she put it on. Oh, by the way my other two kids are attached to each of my legs at this point (no joke!). After this, I quickly change the other two kids and then it’s time to brush their teeth. By this time, I just want the kids in bed, but of course my dear child has something else planned! She insists I floss her teeth. I try convincing her that it’s okay to skip a day, nothing will happen, every kid skips flossing their teeth once in a while! Well, guess what? Hafsah is not every other kid. She wants me to floss her teeth, and it can’t be just a few teeth I need to floss. Every. Single. Tooth. MUST. BE. FLOSSED… Continue reading
