A month ago, Tigger said he wanted a Minecraft themed 6th birthday party. He then changed his mind to Ben 10, and then changed his mind again to superhero and then again to Minecraft. At this point I quickly locked down on it and went online to get an invitation.

Party Steps :
1. Make a guest list first: mine came to 20 kids.
2. Pick Venue: Royal Stables in Abu Dhabi is my favourite party destination in cooler weather. It is where we had my little sister’s baby shower also.
3. Date: Yes, pick the venue before the date to see if the venue is free, if it can accommodate  kids etc.
The party was going to be the day after his birthday as it just was more convenient for everybody.


The invitations turned out beautifully, and Tigger was super excited to hand them out. He gave them to his classmates, his teacher, his swimming coach, and so on. Suffice to say we had over 20 people at the party.

I will be posting more details of the party soon.

Last week Tigger’s school held the spring show.
Before I go into that, I should tell you how much I love his school. Other than the regular stuff one would expect from the school, they have really let Tigger blossom as a real little person.

I would never have expected Tigger to be coming home with a sticker and a huge grin for introducing the whole class at the show and remembering ALL the words. *super applause*

It was a bit of a struggle for me to find an elephant’s costume that Tigger would wear. Unfortunately he is picky about itchy, starchy clothes. But that apart, he loved that I bought some face paints (and a quick internet tutorial at 6 in the morning).  He was happy.

Sadly I missed the show. Pregnancy really hit me hard last week and I could barely get out of bed. Mr. A was super helpful in getting Ayaan dressed, and getting him to school.
Also this is why I only have ONE decent picture of the show.

Anyway, I am a super proud mummy today!

Welcome to my blog and my first blog post. As a mom to three kids and one on the way, I am sure you can imagine that I have some stories to share and a few rants to shout. The first one I think needs to be about where we are in life and what we are looking forward to (and that you will read about) in the coming few months.

Big brother Tigger is finishing his last few days in his current school. Change is always hard, and I am really not sure if he will notice the big change. Of course there are a few advantages. The big one being, he will be in the same school as his cousins. He loves them to bits, and he will welcome any chance he gets to spend time with them.

Pebbles and Bam Bam have finally started to walk. As of this month, they are officially 17 months old. Though they were born premature at 28 weeks, they have done so well and I am incredibly proud of my little miracles.

All three of my babies have been premature, with Tigger born at 33 weeks, and I am sure you can imagine that me being 30 weeks pregnant as of this week has got my family on their toes. I keep on telling them though, that I have a feeling that Little Roo is going for the long haul and is probably going to be the only full term baby I have.

It is official though – my belly walks into a room way before I do. I should probably enjoy this, as it is probably going to be my last few days as a pregnant woman, and of course when I say enjoy, I mean milk it for all it’s worth.
