I am a planner. My husband isn’t. It can make for interesting conversations. Fortunately, we have been friends for about 18 years, and we have learned how to compromise. But, despite my willingness to be flexible, I still can’t change the fact that I like to plan. It’s just a part of who I am. Actually, I am wondering where we will be eating Thanksgiving dinner this year. My husband will bring it up in November.
Every year during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world fast from dawn until dusk as an act of worship. Children, elderly, and nursing or pregnant mothers are exempt. With Amani just barely two months at the start of this Ramadan, I knew I wouldn’t be fasting along with my family and friends. To say I felt left out is an understatement. It didn’t feel like Ramadan to me, but I had a very good excuse for not fully participating.
Bathtime is one of my favorite times. What’s not to love about splashing in the water, bubble baths, and fresh, clean kiddos at the end of it all? As a mama to four, most of the time I have to bathe them each quickly in order to get through them all in a reasonable amount of time. That may mean less fun for the sake of efficiency. But with the adorable bath time products from Kohls, we can now infuse some fun into their baths. Wash cloth sets, robes, and hooded towels featuring their favorite Disney characters including, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Finding Nemo, are all available. Check out these great goodies that make bath time fun and efficient.
For nearly two and a half years, she was the baby of the family. She is known to all as “Baby Z”. Her baby status is something that I figured would stay with her always. I still consider all of my daughters as “my babies”, but there’s something about Zaynab that has let that baby feeling linger. However, that all changed when Amani was born.
