Sisters In Motherhood

I checked in with a colleague recently on how she was coping with the perennial juggling act of handling career and motherhood. After exchanging tales on how things were going for each other, she wrapped up the short sharing session with, “Being a mother is not easy huh? Take care. Remember, we mothers can do » Read More

Sailing trip to Nongsa, Batam

Earlier in June, we travelled to Nongsa, Batam for a short getaway with the family and extended family from Evelyn’s side.  We invited Evelyn’s parents to join us to sail together and they readily accepted the invitation. Apart from one other trip we did about three years ago to Swatow, China, this was probably the » Read More

H.E.L.P my child and me

So it finally happened. After 6 months into Primary 1, my son has come home with the dreaded ‘my teacher told me I’m stupid’ virus. Now, this has never happened before in our household because my firstborn was mostly an exemplary student. These tales of ‘abusive’ teachers were just that! Fairy Tales! How could anyone » Read More

The Magical Age of Three

Last week, while chatting with Tim, I was suddenly struck by how much Cristan has grown! Omigosh he’s THREE! How did time fly by so quickly???  Almost immediately, I once again felt a deep sense of joy and thankfulness for being able to be a stay-at-home mom (SAHM) for the last 2.5 years. Career can always » Read More

The First Family Road Trip

As the saying goes, there’s a first for everything. This July saw me experiencing two big firsts: my maiden trip to Japan and a never-before-attempted family self-drive vacation. I had previously written about how one of the participants at a recent MaybeBaby dialogue on work-life matters asked whether travelling was still possible with baby in » Read More

My Kids and My Social Media

I’ve been wanting to write about this for some time now. More precisely, since the first week of April, when a friend shared this link on Facebook. I’m guessing that she must have had many requests from well-meaning friends and family members to post pictures of her newborn online. For those who are too lazy » Read More

There’s Work, there’s Life. There’s No Balance!

There’s Work. There’s Life. There is NO Balance. So much for Lean in. I don’t know if you read the recent article on Forbes.com where Pepsi-co CEO Indra Noori said that women having it all is just an illusion that comes with painful sacrifices and tradeoffs. Her candour on this much debated and rather prickly » Read More

Missing Couple Time

I miss having couple time. It’s not because parenting duties have taken over our lives (although that is a debatable point…) Rather, it’s simply because my other half isn’t here. Dannie’s been away on an overseas work trip for the past 3 days. Yeah, sure, it’s been only THREE days, but it’s strange how empty » Read More

Maleficent: What my favorite fairytale taught me about babies

I got this in the mail recently: A pleasant surprise mention in the I Love Children’s Annual Report (together with that bird’s nest hairstyle that was SO last year) really made me pause and reflect: “Wow. 8 months has passed since I started blogging for MaybeBaby.” I’ve thought and talked about babies more in the » Read More

Surviving sans Support

Its been a week since the in-laws left, and I’ve SURVIVED as a mom of two young kiddos, without any additional help! Just give me a minute while I glow with pride! I know that many experienced (and amazing) moms, who have been doing this for years, may be thinking – “So what? Big deal!” » Read More
