Let’s Talk About…TEETHING!

image
There are so many teething products out there, such as teething necklaces, gels, toys, etc. Some natural ways to help ease the pain of teething are to give your baby frozen wash cloths or teething toys to chew on; the idea here is to allow the frozen items numb the pain. This is the method I used for my oldest daughter, and it seemed to work! For my second daughter, I used Camilia homeopathic teething drops; they were so effective I alway made sure I had a good stock in my medicine cabinet and in my diaper bag. In between these drops, my daughter was creative, and put anything and everything in her mouth – yes, even her shoes and her rocker! Continue reading

Back To School Jitters

image

Mentally, I was trying to prepare myself for my second daughter’s first day of preschool. With my oldest daughter, Hafsah, the transition to preschool was a smooth one, for she had been to daycare since the age of two. Hafsah loved daycare so much, she even asked if I could take her to daycare on the weekends – when it was closed. So, for her, going to preschool was something she looked forward to, and therefore her first day was no big deal!

However, with my second child, Madina, things were different. Continue reading

The Countdown To Bedtime & Wakeup Time

image

Today was one of those days when you start doing the countdown to bedtime as soon as your children wake up in the morning. I felt exhausted by 9:00 AM and I had only been awake for an hour with the kids. My gut was telling me it was going to long day, and was it ever! Continue reading

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!

Fruit Plate Of Love

image

My children and I made these fruit plates a while back – We loved putting these together because they were not only yummy and fun to make, but we made them with LOVE.

Fruit plates are a great way to teach your children about a topic you want them to learn about! While my kids and I put together these plates, we discussed what ‘love’ means to them, and how we can express our love through actions of respect and through words of kindness.

You can make a fruit plate with your children by choosing any theme, such as peace, equality, human rights, etc….Not only is this an activity where your children will learn about a certain concept, but it’s also a great bonding experience!

Have a great day filled with Peace & Love everyone 🙂 © The Muslimah Mommy (2014)

The Sweetness Of Life

(Edited on January 2015 for the ‘Love Is’ series)

Love is…finding the sweetness in your life.

Sometimes, the sweetness of this life doesn’t come in obvious forms. We think we will taste the sweetness once we become rich with money, or if we drive fancy cars and have 100’s of friends. On the contrary – sweetness has nothing to do with money or fame.
