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.


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 for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Preggy Diaries: 2nd Trimester

I am overwhelmed with the people who congratulated us ❤❤

Okay just a short story about our 5 months ultrasound check up. My first "legit" ultrasound was carried out by our gynae in KPJ Ipoh, Dr. Zamzida and nothing seeing our baby's heartbeat the first time felt surreal. It's something like I have been very blessed to have this munch. Dr. Zamzida was very happy we finally succeed to naturally conceived and she pray the best for our journey and the baby. Unfortunately we won't be able to do our monthly check up with her because it would be too far for us to go all the way to and fro Ipoh every month. My husband already decided on where to deliver the baby and whom will be my gynae throughout our 10 months journey. He seems very committed for baby no. 2 😊

We started our monthly maternity check up at 12 weeks with Dr. Zunita at Tunku Azizah Maternity Home, and this is our ultrasound results for 20 weeks check up. Alhamdulillah, the baby heart beat is perfectly nor…
