Potty Training Level- Beginner

Assalamualaikum wbt...

There comes a time where a mother would talk about the most awkward subject (oh say about poo, the color of poo, more poo to name a few) that she would have never dreamed about talking when she was single/younger/without a child.  That's what motherhood does to you and with that, today I'm going to talk about Aulia' training from diapers to panties which weirdly enough is a very proud mommy moment ok. 

That's right, my baby doll, who is already TWO last month is working hard for diapers off!

Her potty training started at 22 months thanks to my mom's initiative. As it is, Aulia' gets bad rashes from pro-longed diaper wearing so whenever she's at home, my mom would let her wear pants without any diapers on. 

Anyho, we would take Aulia' to her blue throne every 30 minutes or so. Make no mistakes as there have been cases where she's just let it go. So yes, mopping off pee on the floor was quite common. There were a few times I took the mop, gave it to her to clean up after herself, lol. It wasn't all easy at first convincing her to pee on the potty and I have to tell her like so many times "Aulia' nak sheeshee please tell ibu okay".

Am I a big girl now or what?!

Long story short, after a while, she got used to it and her peeing time went from 30 minutes to 1-2 hours each time. She would still sleep in her diapers coz around 2 onwards, her pee seemed to have doubled up in volume!! Look at me, talking about pee and pee volumes, lol. There were instances of her maximizing out one single diaper in a record time of 3 minutes!! I remember putting in on her, went on to do my makeup and when I checked again-it was FULL!

Can kids pee alot or what?! There were times I used to wake up to very wet pants and bed sheets coz her diaper had been filled to the brim and I felt so bad seeing my baby sleep in her pee infested diaper and pants! But what can I do if she pees so much right?

Then about a month ago, I noticed how dry her diapers would be every time I changed it at night. Like only one diaper was needed the entire night and even then it's usually dry or peed on very little. From that, I knew it was indeed time for an upgrade! Or downgrade-whichever way you wanna see it as :)

So I put a Disney mini mouse panties on her which she picked it out herself. So after getting her that, we just went with the flow (no pun intended) and hoped she wouldn't pee on the bed! I told her repeatedly not to 'mess' it up by peeing on it. I think on some level that helped coz she does love her Disney panties constantly telling is how pretty they are, hah. 

But for now, the hubby is just happy with the idea that we can cut down on diaper expenses real soon.

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
