What Can A Pregnant Woman Wear In Kuwait!?

download (2)

 

Now when I first got pregnant I knew I had to shop for new maternity cloths when I looked at my older ones they were worn out and the colours were just washed off. So I went to stores that I’ve shopped from in my previous pregnancy and found out this!…

Top Shop have removed their maternity section and so did H&M. I was so counting on getting my jeans and leggings from there. Went to mother care to find out that the maternity wear section have been shrunk to a tiny section which mostly included pj’s and things that only a 70 year old woman would wear !

Now I was stuck with Destination Maternity “which is the only store in Kuwait specialised in maternity wear” and also have the granny clothes issue going on. except for maybe a couple of pieces from Jessica Simpson’s collection which are really over priced for something thats gonna fit for a couple of months only…

I ended up not buying anything and going to shop online. while I was at it I found out that most store we have in the malls actually do include a maternity wear online. And if we do we have them, they are the worst collection that the market could offer.

The question is where shall a pregnant woman get her clothes from in this country?!  and why did the stores all of a sudden decided to remove pregnancy clothes from their stocks. Did we all of a sudden stop having babies here in Kuwait? I really don’t get it :-|

Knowing The Baby’s Gender with Sugar Box Bakery

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We were approached by Sugar Box Bakery for a fun way to know what is the baby’s gender. All we had to do is ask the doctor to write down the gender and seal it in an envelope. We then gave Sugar Box Bakery the envelope and they baked a cake and the inside would tell us the gender depending on the colour.

Well, we had to make a little fuss about it. So we did it during our weekly family gathering and invited everyone to guess the gender by selecting a balloon. Once the gender was revealed, the wrong balloons would be popped. Well with the kids around all the balloons were popped.

I have always been a fan of children’s section in IKEA, actually most of Meshari’s furniture and toys are from there. I think they are child friendly and educational. IKEA Kuwait is now participating in their world wide campaign that allows children in countries of poverty get the education they need.

Ikea foundation is supporting children in developing countries with the annual Soft Toy for Education campaign by funding education programs run by Save the Children and UNICEF.

From November 9th 2014 until January 3ed 2015, for every IKEA soft toy, the IKEA Foundation will donate one euro to education programs around the world supported by UNICEF and Save the Children. Also applies to online purchases.

The Soft Toys for Education campaign aims to provide quality education to children living in poverty in developing countries. Since the campaign started in 2003, education from annual IKEA Soft Toy campaign have totalled 67 million euros, helping more than 11 million children in 46 countries to enjoy their right to quality education.

A Day At Kidzania

IMG_2121

Ever since Kidzania opened at The Avenues I’ve been wanting to take Mishari there but it was always crowded. When Halloween came Kidzania announced their Halloween theme and invited us to check it out , I was excited and could not wait to take Misho.

Too bad they canceled the theme because of cultural and religious reasons as they said but we got in anyways.

Even though I heard so much about the place and saw lots of pictures I was still very impressed when I saw the place and wished I was a kid again so I could play there.

Mishari is only two years old so he could not participate in all the activities yet there was a lot that he could do and enjoy. we first took the tour bus to discover the place. Then we went to the construction site, where he was dressed like a builder and started building a wall with the help of the staff. Adults are not allowed inside the site so I stepped out and watched. I was really happy to see how engaged he was , he even forgot that I was there.When he was done with playing there he got a paid for his work! that was really cute.

Then we went to the Art Club were he started painting like Picasso. I loved sharing that moment with him.

There are also a toddlers only area upstairs were Misho really enjoyed his time moving around and discovering the place freely. I have to say that Kidzania have the most friendly staff of people that I have ever met. they’re all really good with kids.

There was a lot of fun things to do there I think kids could spend a whole day there without being board. Even I as an adult enjoyed my time there, its fun and educational in so many different ways for kids.

The only thing that I thought was unthought of was the adult fee. Its a bit much to pay that amount of money to enter the place with your kid. after all you are only there to supervise.

Overall its a must visit for parents and kids.

THE CLOTHES are some of the cutest pieces I have ever seen, they are very unique and elegant. If you have a baby girl you should really give them a visit.

Now That You’re Two

Two years ago you came into our lives and filled it with joy and blessing.Two years ago you came and changed our life drastically, everything became all about you and our worlds became revolved around you. Every step I take with you is for you, you became my life and my everything.

You filled my heart with love for I have never loved anything so much in my life. You are a true blessing.

I thank Alla for having the chance to watch you grow every single day and hold your hand while taking every tiny step of the way. I thank him when I wake up every morning to your big naughty smile. I thank him when you fall asleep in my arms and pray that he would protect you and help me be a good mother to you.

I wish you all the happiness in the world. May Alla never show you harm or sorrow as long as you live and grow up to be the amazing person I know you will be.

Happy Birthday my dearest Mishari

Love, Mom

Traveling Car Seats

Traveling with a toddler is not an easy job, well not for me I guess:/ last time we traveled with Misho it was really exhausting to me especially with no car seat on long drives! yes trust me a car seat would make a huge difference.

But now that he is older and a bit more independent I think it would be easier, but still I think  car seat is an essential and safer.

When we rented a car in Dubai last time we asked for a car seat, that we also have to pay extra for, in the car but when we arrived there they told us they didn’t have any available one and I had to sit him on my lab. It wasn’t comfortable for both of us, specially that the rides are longer there, while in Kuwait it takes almost 10 min to get anywhere.

So I searched the web to find traveling car seats and found some great ones, too bad I don’t know if they sell them here in Kuwait…
