Assalamu’alaikum and hello!
One night during our bedtime routine while I was saying the du’a (supplication) before sleeping with Little Duck, she repeated a couple of the words along with me. It dawned on me that she was ready and capable of memorizing. I asked her to repeat it word by word after me every night. A couple of nights later, she had the du’a memorized in its entirety (albeit – it is a short one), Masha’Allah. Her milestones always amaze me and are a reminder of the beauty of creation, Subhanallah. Continue reading
From the day my daughter was born, my husband and I introduced simple ways to incorporate Islamic activities into her life. The following are some tips for 12-18 month olds.
This isn’t a new blog but a fresh start. I wanted to keep this blog name as it describes me perfectly. I am a chai-addict. I have to have my cup of tea every single day and usually twice a day. Ideally, it’s when my daughter is taking her naps,
my favorite part of the day, that I get to catch up on my thoughts, do whatever I like, and sip my chai peacefully. And it will be most likely the time I get to blog – aaand most likely about her!
I am a new-ish mom. Baby L is twelve months old, Masha’Allah. I wanted to join the Club of Motherhood ever since I got married, though I appreciate now the wisdom behind waiting – just don’t tell my husband. Truthfully, I have never felt so complete in my life as I do now.
What is the purpose of my blog? I want this to be a place where I can share my experiences as a homemaker and specifically as a mother. I am a teacher by profession, though I do not teach anymore, I wholeheartedly believe that a mother is the child’s first teacher. And I take this role very seriously. To state the obvious, the role parents play in shaping their children’s future is invaluable.
I am learning as I go, and I want this to be a place where I can share my success and my failure. I want it to be a place where I can exchange ideas with a wider community of moms/parents. I also hope that I can provide other moms out there with advice and tips.
