    Quote of the Day 024: The Test

    Have you ever failed a test? Do you know the feeling of being miserable in a way that you feel like you’re doing things wrong? Do you easily get discouraged and stop from there? Within the last 7 months with Little M, I had those moments.  As a newborn, there was a time when he wasn’t feeling well.  Then I asked myself..What did I do wrong that he’s feeling this way? Have I neglected my role as a mother? Am I not doing enough? In this beautiful journey, it’s a combination of happy moments and challenging ones. But one thing is for sure..it’s part of the experience of motherhood and…

    It’s never too late to try something new: The Benefits of Mom & Baby Ballet

    “If you want something you never had-you have to do something you’ve never done”-Anonymous Ever since I was a child, being able to perform and connect with my body is something I look forward to. I love to express myself through dancing. It’s the bridge between my mind, body and soul. It provides me an emotional release and an outlet despite the ups and downs of life. At around 8 weeks postpartum, I introduced Little M to a routine which we both liked at home. It’s my baby wearing journey through dance.  He likes the beat of the music, the rhythm, the swaying and rocking, and of course, the cuddles…
