Incy Wincy Mommy

Tic toc tic toc. It is 4:30 o’clock a.m. It is the start of my morning. What can I say, I have an early riser 2-year old.

Fact: I don’t care waking up early as 4 as long as I had 7 to 8 hours of sleep at night (which is sometimes impossible).  I just need to recharge my battery. You know, for another day filled with never ending house chores and exciting hours of activities with my little one.



I normally, set an activity every hour for my toddler. That is to keep her active, creative and happy. It is a long list since we’re awake since 4am. But all good and fun stuff. If possible I steer her away from tv or ipad. Too much of it will not only impair her eyes but also her development and temperament ( you probably hear a lot about that, so I will not go there any more). Here are few things we love to do for 8 hours before her nap time:

  • Listening to nursery rhymes and dancing with it. 
  • Play musical instrument with her like drums, trumpet, maracas or anything that bangs and create sounds. If I have guitar like evh wolfgang - guitarcenter.com, I would love to teach her strums even if it means learning it for the first time too. 
  • Learning new words through books, flash cards and everything we see around the house. 
  • Being creative with lego and blocks. 
  • Lots and lots of pretend games. 
  • Colouring her favourite book ( and favourite wall). 
  • Playing ball outside (with lots of running around)
  • Tidying up her toys (teaching her until she gets the idea, who knows when).
  • Playing hide and seek (mostly she’s hiding and I’m seeking but when you call her, she will answer “ I’m here mommy.” So adorable.) 
  • Tickling time (my favourite part) 
  • Her “me-time” (She needs it as it is the time she develops and come to know herself on her own.)


Who said being mom is easy? No, it is not. But I enjoy every bit of it. Even if it means lack of sleep, no personal time or no private time (literally a plus one everywhere I go, even in toilet). Becoming a mother is the best thing that ever happened to me. I won’t exchange it for anything in the world.

That said, I admire all moms out there who unconditionally give their best to make their children happy. The tasks is non-stop as well as the joy it brings. It is challenging sometimes but that’s part of making who you are as a mom. It is part of becoming the best mom as you can be. A woman needs 8 hands to do all the house chores, but she only needs one heart to be a mom. So yeah, Challenge Accepted!
