Another Boy In My Life

This is my fourth pregnancy. I already have two sons and a few days ago I was expecting a baby girl. My third pregnancy ended up in a curetage. I lost the baby to be just at her very early age.

I visited my obsgyn this Wednesday and she told me that my baby to be is a boy through USG.


I laughed as I stared at the monitor. I once expecting a daughter, yes, I did. However, I'm not disappointed. This baby is my child. I will love him just as what every mom does.

He's in week 24 now and he's about 600 grams. He's healthy and likes to move a lot more compared to his brothers.

It feels like he's tickeling me from the inside. I love the sensation. Really love it.

Time is ticking and all of a sudden there is only about three months left before I can see my baby. I haven't done any preparation yet. I'm still enjoying these times.

The biggest differences I feel about this pregnancy is that I'm more vulnerable than my previous pregnancies. I often feel the unusual feelings. I miss my husband more often. I know it's normal to pregnant women but I just don't understand why it happens to me. I feel like I want to be with him all the time. Crazy, huh?

Do you, moms, feel the same feelings when you are pregnant?

Kids Activity: Three Legged Compound Word Race

Hi, Moms and Dads. Learning by playing is kid's stuff. What about building vocabulary? There is a fun activity to do with your kids explained in this guest post by, it's three legged compound word race.

If you are interested in guest posting, please feel free to contact me.

Happy reading!


In second grade, kids work hard to "sound out" new words as they build up their reading vocabulary. Sometimes, it’s easy; other times, more challenging…and if you’re new reader, having a few patterns up your sleeve can really help things along. One very useful tool is understanding “compound words”—long words that are really made from two shorter, familiar ones, combined.

Here’s a goofy party or park game for a bunch of second grade kids who are learning to read long words. Play it once, play it many times—it should still be good for learning and laughs.

Why Moms of Today Are More Fragile Compared To Their Seniors

I read a nice blog post yesterday about moms of today who seem more fragile than moms in the past. I agree a lot with the article and I try to write something about it, too.
As a mom of three who live in a modern life, I experience growing kids in different situations.
My first son was born 8 years ago at the time when facebook was just about to gain its popularity. I remember my brother told me to try facebook and he said, "people of our ages are there too." What he actually meant was he tried to convince me that this kind of social media was not too young for me unlike the previous social media which was fully loaded by youngsters: friendsters.
I, at first, was not sure to join facebook but then I read an article in a magazine and then I decided to try it out. And here I am now, a facebooker. Not long after that I had another baby, my second son who was born only 14 months after his big brother. I raised these two kids as if I had twins. They looked alike and they swal…

Purity And Prayer: An Islamic Children Rhyming Picture Book

In my younger years I once loved listening to nasheed (Islamic songs). Many songs I listened and memorized from groups of male to female nasheed group. I even handled a group of nasheed during my college years about 20 years ago. The rise of Islamic living was about to blossom at the moment. Hijabis had been started to appear here and there in campus.
Nasheed changed the way I spent my time. The guilty feeling of listening to music became smaller. I don't listen to music anymore now (gonna tell you later about it insha Allah) but nasheed was one good choice for me.
What I liked the most from nasheed is the rhyme. I am quite an auditory learner so I found rhyming is so much fun. It is more fun when comes to learning something. Kindergartens learn things through songs and rhymes as well.
What about learning Islam through rhymes? I have a great news! Book publisher, Prolance, has released a book called Purity & Prayer: Rhyming Picture Book of Sacred Rulings by Ameena Bint Abdir …
