Quality time with our children

It seems like as the years go by our lives become more chaotic.We run around doing so much that we loose ourselves and loose track of time. Fast forward and our kids are adults and we ask ourselves where did the time go ?


I watched this video and it really go to me. It shows you the simple most important thing that our children need and want is quality time with us. Wether it be sitting together having lunch, spending some family time playing games or simple sitting around and talking to one another. Lets cherish the time we have with our children because in a blink of an eye they will be busy with their own lives and we will be the ones asking them to slow down and come eat lunch with us.

Why bulky winter coats and car seats don’t mix

We are all guilty of overdressing our kids when we feel that the weather has cooled down, especially in Kuwait because we are not used to cold winters. Research has shown that we should never but our children in a car seat wearing their jackets as it can be very dangerous and unsafe for our children.

Watch the video below and please share it with all the parents you know.

Car seat alert: A winter coat could endanger your child

Time to get organized!

With the school year coming to an end I decided to take advantage of the holiday (since there are no travel plans yet) and get organized around the house. Our study area is overflowing with school papers, art work, you name it! and the playroom is a mess and needs a makeover. I came across some great ideas and thought about sharing them. You might get inspired to do some summer organizing as well ;)

It is always better to have all you important papers, birth certificates, and passports in one place. Always try to have the expiry date of certain documents in an easy place to few them so you don’t find out that your passport has expired on the way to the airport. Yes, unfortunatly it has happened a few times!

Kids will be coming home with numerous papers and folders and most of it will be art work they did at school. If you don’t have the heart to throw them away like me then here are a few fun ideas.

Display them on your walls around the house.You can find these wall hangers available at Ikea in the kitchen section.

Place them in photo albums with the year and grade they were in.

One of my favorites is turning them into place mats! How adorable is this?

We love these storage boxes. They make organizing so easy and it keeps all your drawers and your kids drawers neat and tidy. The boxes are available at Ikea.

When it comes to organizing the kids playroom I have found that Pottery Barn and Ikea have the best options. Adorable kid tables and chairs, and modern storage solutions.

Do you have any organizational tips you would like to share with other mommies ? Please drop us an email and we would gladly share your tip ;)

Reading nooks

With all the technology, iPads, videos games and smart phones, children read less and less. It is important as parents to instill the love of reading in our children. Make it more about fun and play than a chore. Role play and take turns reading. You can also create a little corner in your house with comfy chairs and pillows for them to sit and read on.

Here are a few of our favorite reading nooks that might inspire you to make your own.
