Here I am sitting in the dark in the kids’ room, feeling so tired after having a very long day of cooking. Where is my Michelin star chef when I need him? Oh right, he’s on holiday. The boys have grown. They are men now, I kid you not. I can’t keep up with them.… Continue reading 18-month update
No, I don’t allow her to wear make up. I caught her playing with my lipstick. Since auntie madam turned 4 years old, everything about her is “I’m a big girl.” Before her birthday, she kept on asking us when she would turn four. She was in such a hurry because probably in her little… Continue reading Jeannine Says…
Having children takes a toll on you. They come into your life, so sweet and precious, yet still manage to turn your life upside down. They literally take over everything.

For the past few days, I have been feeling very bummed out, incompetent, not trying hard enough and generally feeling powerless. My daughter just won't eat as I would like her to. I need help. She had a healthy appetite as a baby. She was round with folds and we used to call her ‘Michelin… Continue reading My toddler won’t eat
Recently, my husband and I have realized that we are not being invited to parties and hang outs anymore. We go on Instagram and see all sorts of parties and events and we’re wondering whether our friends have forgotten about us. The usual excuse is, “your hands are full so we didn’t want to bother… Continue reading Leaving the house
When we found out we were having twins, the best decision for us was for me to take 6 months off work. With my experience with my daughter, I knew taking care of two babies at the same time was going to be much more difficult, so I needed ample time off. I used to… Continue reading What my day looks like
