    8 Best Indoor Activities for Kids Without Using Technology

    I’m a first time mom and for the first year of Little M, I believe we’ve done pretty well when it comes to doing different indoor and outdoor activities together.

Our favourite Indoor Activities include the Mom and Baby Ballet of Balletiques, Baby Lab of Gymboree, Baby Rhyme Time at the Calgary Public Library, Mother Goose Class of Parent Link Centre, the Swimming Classes of Vecova & Vivo, and our meetups with other Moms and Babies of Mommy Connections Calgary! So what benefits did we get? Were they all fun and worth our time?…

    I am a C-section Mama and it’s okay: the Untold Truth

    I am saddened with the fact that C-section (Caesarean) Mamas face a little judgment when natural birth didn’t go as planned. There’s that feeling of being less than a mother. Is this true? One fact is…the stigma is real and this should not even exist. “A good mother isn’t defined by the process of labor or whether she breastfeeds or not. A good mother is defined by the sacrifices and love she gives to her child.”- Unknown It’s 12:10 midnight right now and it’s exactly the same time when Little M was born. Memories start flashing on how my birth story started. I can’t believe it’s almost a year since I…

    A letter to a first-time Mom: the struggle is real

    “When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” As a first-time mom, what questions have you asked after your baby was born? It’s now Month 11, Day 335, Week 47 and 5 days to be exact.  Back in August 2018, I gave birth to a sweet little man. All the mixed emotions that I’ve encountered were truly felt. I just had a baby! Of course, I was up and about ‘coz I made it! It was not that hard as I’ve expected! Hmmmmmmm….. Yes, Mama.  It really isn’t.  But guess…

    Quote of the Day 032: Life

    In your life right now, do you feel contented of your accomplishments or do you feel the pressure to blend with our society? At times, we tend to look for perfectionism. We continuously search for something that is beyond our expectations. Instead of finding what you want in your life, have you actually given time to internalize what you are looking for? Are you continuously searching for your passion? In Motherhood for instance, sometimes we try to do things to feel good as a mom. We have that Mom guilt. We look up to others thinking we are not doing enough. In fact, day by day, we are creating ourselves;…

    Do you agree that being a mother is actually the greatest, hardest and the most rewarding role? Mother’s Day is just around the corner and this day reminds us how grateful we are to the woman who sacrificed her life for us but also has provided us with our necessities.

    Transition to Motherhood: Where do I begin? It’s a fresh start!

    ” When a baby is born, so is a mother; each unsteady in their own way. Matrescence is profound and it’s also hard. And that’s what makes it human.”-Alexandra Sacks It was a sunny summer day when we were finally going home. Everything I packed for both myself and the baby were untouched except for my grooming essentials. We stayed in the hospital for a day but after going through the whole labor and delivery, the day felt so long.   As a first time mom, I got so excited and yes, I made it! “Congratulations! You’re good to go…” the nurse said.  Sure enough, I felt my experience wasn’t…
