coffee-laptop-business-work

Going to work may be the way for most mums to make a living, but if staying home to work sounds good to you, you’re not alone. About 21% of employed parents did some or all of their job at home. Considering becoming a work-at-home mum (WAHM) yourself? I’ve been going back and forth in the working scene (FTWM –> SAHM –> PTWM –> WAHM –> SAHM) and recently I’m going back to work as a freelance legal counsel where[Read more]

Diastasis-Recti

Dear Parent, Avoid Being the Trigger

I shared last week about the importance of having a trigger that will prompt the kids to do the desired habit every time. Adults usually have to come up with triggers for themselves, but parents can help their children by spotlighting triggers for them. The trick is to avoid being the trigger for your child. This is where many parents veer off course in habit-training. They confuse spotlighting the trigger with directly telling the child what to do. Yes, you should explain what you[Read more]

Summer is finally here and what better way to enjoy the fabulous weather than dressing for the glorious season. Technically, it’s always summer here in Singapore… and because of that, I like to be comfortable in whatever I put on. That is a must.  And as a mummy, I need to have clothes that move more freely and easy to navigate with when I run after my kid. Having said that, I noticed that I get dirty easily when I’ve[Read more]

Habit Training for Every Young Child

Today, we are on the topic of habit training for young children. Have you ever heard of a gandy dancer? I just discovered that term, and I am enjoying the whimsy and rhythm of it. It’s the nickname that was given to railroad workers who laid and maintained railroad tracks, in the early years before the work was done by machines. These men held a long iron pole upright with one end against the steel track. They would wiggle the[Read more]

Encouragement for Mums with Young Children

Recently a mum asked me some pertinent questions about life with a young child. As stay-at-home-mummies, we want our days to be filled with joy, love, contentment and fulfilment. Over and over, others tell us that the years with our children go by quickly and that we should treasure each day. However, we may feel that those giving us counsel have long forgotten the fatigue of being up in the night with babies and sick children, the drudgery of mundane[Read more]
