Want to Be a Stay-at-Home Mom? Here are 5 Things to Determine First

Some women like the idea of being a stay-at-home mom after your baby is born. While this may be an easy decision for some women, it’s often a challenge for others, as there are many different things to first consider. If you’re expecting a baby and would like to be home with your child, here are five things you should determine first to know if it’s the right decision for you and your family.

Be a Stay-at-Home Mom

1. Can you afford it?

The very first thing you need to consider is if it’s something you can afford. The cost of living continues to rise, and many couples have found that each person has to work in order to cover their expenses. Before your baby is born, it’s important to look hard at your finances and determine if you can afford to stay home with your baby. Look at your current budget and see how it will change by adding in the cost of a new baby along with the cost of childcare. Then, look to see if there are things you can do now to make it easier to stay home, such as paying off a car to avoid a car payment or paying off debt to eliminate monthly expenses.

After looking at your budget, you may find that making changes now will allow you to stay home, or you may find that you can stay home as long as you work part time. Preparing yourself head of time will help you determine if staying home is something you can actually afford to do.

2. What policies and perks could you lose?

Aside from knowing if you can afford it, it’s important for you to also look at what policies may change or become lost if you opt to leave your job. For instance, if you are receiving insurance through your employer, you’ll either need to opt for private insurance or see if you can be added to your spouse’s policy. You’ll also want to do the same for retirement savings plans and any other perks you may be getting through your employer. For instance, if you have a company car with company-paid insurance, you’ll need to plan for another vehicle and additional insurance. According to Mercury Insurance, “Shopping for insurance policies early will help you save money,” and with a new baby on the way, saving money will be important.

3. Can you handle it?

Being a stay-at-home mom is not for everyone, so don’t feel obligated to stay home with your child if you would rather be a working mother. At the same time, you may WANT to be a stay-at-home mom, but you may find that it’s not something you can handle. Being a stay-at-home mom requires a lot of work and a lot of patience, and it’s often exhausting and overwhelming. If you don’t think it’s something you’ll be able to handle successfully, then maybe it’s not the right choice for you.

4. What is the long-term plan?

Being a stay-at-home mom can come in many forms, so it’s a good idea to determine what your long-term plan will be. For instance, do you want to stay home only for the first year of your child’s life, or do you want to stay home until they graduate high school? There are a lot of things you’ll need to factor, such as cost, but having an idea of your long-term plan can help you take the right steps. For instance, if you want to go back to work sooner rather than later, then it’s a good idea to keep contacts with people in your industry or take some classes to stay current with latest trends. This way, your time out of the workforce won’t hinder your chances at finding a job when you’re ready to go back.

5. How will you handle the change?

Before you become a stay-at-home mom, it’s important for you to have an open dialogue with your spouse about the change that will take place. Often stress can occur between the working parent and the stay-at-home parent, and you don’t want your relationship to suffer because of this change. Be sure you are both aware of the expectations of each other and communicate any pros and cons to help you both make a decision you’re comfortable with.

Being a stay-at-home parent is not always the right choice for everyone, so before you have your heart set on turning in your letter of resignation, be sure to consider all this first.

Back to School Shopping in Johor Bahru , Malaysia

Living in Singapore, Johor Bahru is our favorite place for short getaways and shopping trips whenever there is a holiday. We don’t need a reason to visit Johor Bahru. ( or JB as most call this city of Malaysia)After our recent long holiday in Sri Lanka, year-end weekend was the perfect time to visit JB again. Reason? No perfect reason at all! We wanted to spend family time, entertain the kid, and most importantly we wanted to buy school stuff for the kid.

Back to School Shopping at Johor Bahru Malaysia

I still remember the back to school days during my school time, the best part of the new school term is that we get new shoes, new bags and books if need. So, following the same, it is time to buy new items for the kid. He will be in Kindergarten this year (K1).After around 2 months holiday in Sri Lanka, we wanted to give him some excitement which can make him eager to go to school on the first day of the new school term.

Back to School Shopping at Johor Bahru Malaysia

Which kid doesn’t love such school supplies themed with Sesame Street Characters!

Johor Bahru is with large city malls namely City Square, Komtar JBCC and many other. As it was the holiday season, both malls were decorated nicely to give us a festive mood.

Our kid was so happy to have his new water bottle, file case, snack box and some other items with his favourite Sesame Street characters!

It was awesome to spend the year end at Johor Bahru. How about you? How do you prepare your kids for the new school term?

Pororo Themed Birthday Party for 3rd Birthday

We threw a Pororo themed Birthday Party for our kid when he turned three! This is a long due post and as always I am late with some posts. Now my son is going to be 4 years old in next October. So, before he reaches 4 years old, I am rushing to share some posts related to his Pororo Birthday Party!

Pororo themed Birthday Party

Our Pororo themed Birthday Party table

Why Pororo theme?

Pororo is a cute little penguin who is the main character of Pororo and the friends cartoon series. Well, I am a mom who allows my kid to spend time with apps and tv shows under my control with limits. Other than Peppa cartoon series, I allow him to watch Pororo and the friend too as this series is suitable for his age as I think.

Now, I am talking about last year which my kid was below 3 years of age. He loved Pororo and still he loves. He also loves to watch Pororo educational series which teaches about patterns, counting and other educational topics.

As I love to select a theme for his birthdays, last year I selected ‘Pororo’ as our 3rd Birthday party theme.

Well, we didn’t have guests for our home. Instead we celebrated his Pororo Birthday Party at his Playgroup with his teachers and friends. It was a lovely and memorable moment.

Here are some of the highlights from our 3rd Birthday celebrations with Pororo themed birthday decorations and supplies.

Design for Pororo Birthday Cake

Before everything I wanted to plan his Pororo themed birthday cake. When I checked online, I could find beautiful Pororo cake design ideas. However as we celebrated the birthday at his playgroup, I had to check with the teacher. Instead of cutting a birthday cake and serve the kids, teacher was happy to have cupcakes. I loved that idea too as cupcakes are easy to serve to the kids.

However, I couldn’t find a place to buy cupcakes easily. There are cupcake shops around my neighborhood, but they have some limitations. Finally I found thecakeshop.com.sg . They were really helpful and I could place my order online. We ordered Pororo themed cupcakes.

Pororo Birthday cupcakes

Although we bought cupcakes for celebrations at the playgroup,I also wanted to blow candles at home as a way of family bonding. So,below is my birthday cake for him.

How I made this Pororo Birthday Cake?

It is really simple. I bought a plain yet simply decorated cake from nearby bakery shop. The cake came with a ‘Happy Birthday’ topper. To the same cake, I created a cake topper using a sticker with Pororo and friends. I pasted that sticker on a toothpick creating a beautiful and easy cake topper. 🙂 Finally, here is our very own Pororo Birthday Cake!

This time, I didn’t spend much time for the Pororo Birthday decorations. Instead I could easily buy Pororo themed Goody bags and party supplies for affordable rates from the nearby shopping mall.(NTUC FairPrice)

And a mommy son moment!

After the playgroup,we celebrated his birthday at home blowing candles and cutting this really simple cake.

We had a great day with the kid.To make him happy,I also visited the Pororo Park with him.So he was full of activities with Pororo and the friends.It was a birthday party which created memories for him with his favourite cartoon character!

Birthday party Album

This time I created his 3rd Birthday party album with Zno photo books.

Mixbook is my other favourite company for his photo books.

These days I am busy planning his next birthday.He will be 4 soon. 🙂

Specially, it is important to follow toy safety standards and toy safety tips with toddlers as they are in a curious stage of life which they always try to explore new things.

Actually,I decided to write this post because of one of my experiences which I regretted much.Exactly one year ago(Last year September),my son faced an accident at home.He slipped on the floor and ended up with 4 stitches on his chin.If you notice the below picture which was taken at his 2nd year birthday celebration,he was with 4 stitches on his chin.In all these birthday photos he looks so tired because he was under treatment.Actually the floor was clean and tidy.But I gave him a balloon and the excited kid wanted to grab it fast and slipped on the floor.It was an accident which we never expected.

Today,exactly after one year of that incident,I want to share some tips which you need to follow when you buy toys for your toddler or when you play with your toddler.These may helpful for you to avoid some of the unexpected incidents which we don’t want to face in our life.

Here are the tips which you can follow in order to ensure that your toddler is using safe toys and games. These tips will ensure your toddler to play in a fun and injury free environment which also creates a peaceful mind for you.

Safety Tips for Toys with Toddlers

  • Check for age appropriate toys and games. When you buy toys for your toddler, always check the product description and appropriate age range. This will ensure that you buy the correct toys for his age.
  • Once you open the packaging, always remember to discard the plastic wrappings. Plastic wrapping can suffocate a small child creating hazards that you will never expect!
  • Always avoid small toys and games from young children which increase possible choking hazards. Toys with removable small parts always increase the choking hazards.
Toy Safety Tips for Toddlers

I always pay attention when he plays with small toys.

  • Strangling is another possible hazard which you should aware of. If the toys are with rope, string or cords, you must be careful when your toddler is playing with such toys. It is always better to keep the strings away from their reach.
This trace & lace set comes with few cords.Instead of avoiding him playing with such educational toy,I always keep my eyes when he plays.

  • Always inspect toys of your toddler for sharp edges and broken parts. Discard the toys if those are broken.
  • Keep the toys in designated areas after playing. Start doing so with your toddler. Not only he will learn organizing from the early days of his life, he will also love this activity after any play session. Your toddler will have safe environment with tidy floor which also prevent falls and such accidents.
  • Not only with toys, you also need to follow safety guidelines and safety tips in everything you do with your toddlers and infants. It can be Food, outdoor playing, baby furniture or even travelling.You can easily learn more at Kokopax’s website about safe baby products and how do we need to decide on the products before buying.Safety should be in first concern with everything you do while raising your kid in order to raise happy and healthy kids.
  • Other than safety guidelines, it is also essential to know the latest information on recalls.

Recently I came across of Consumersafety.org which focuses on consumer safety.

Their mission is to make information about recalls and safety-related news about drugs, medical devices, food, and consumer products with easy accessible way to everyone. Actually I opened my eyes once I read their safety guidelines and tips for infant & kids. There are lots more informative details and guidelines which you can read at their site. Have a look and see how you can add the safety guidelines and recalls information for your lifestyle. You can also find the alerts for recalls which are really helpful for you in order to keep your home and loved ones in safe environment.

Camping at East Coast Park would be fun and your kids will sure find many ways to spend their time at the beach!

4) Travel overseas

It is always exciting to have an overseas trip. Pack your suitcases and spend time in an overseas trip.You can always find the best hotels and resorts here. And don’t forget to print a photo book after the family holiday overseas! These family memories are really precious!

Mini Me Yoga Elearning Review with toddler

This is his favorite yoga pose #yogafortoddlers

It is really exciting, fun and wonderful way to keep our son calm and happy. As he is still a toddler of 2 years plus in age, at the beginning I found it is bit difficult to keep him practicing in a pose. Instead he changed yoga poses as he likes. Most of the time he uses his favorite toys in both hands saying they all are practicing yoga!

Yoga poses with toys

But, that’s fine. Mini Me Yoga is all about creating exciting and cheerful environment for kids while introducing mindfulness and yoga poses. I continued practicing yoga each day without worrying about his eagerness of practicing yoga with his friendly toys.

Mini Me Yoga Elearning Review with toddler

Meditation time was really exciting for me. As a Buddhist, I really like to introduce meditation practices for my son, but previously I thought it is still too early. Surprisingly he loved the meditation pose and Oom sound together with breathing exercise. He loves to send positive vibes to his playgroup friends while practicing yoga at home.

Practicing kindness and compassion #yogafortoddlers

Well, he first sends positive thoughts to his toys. That is how we practiced yoga at our home while teaching kindness and compassion to my toddler with easy yoga poses for kids.

Mini Me Yoga Elearning Review with toddler

He wants to teach yoga for his teddy too.(he is teaching how to sit cross legged.)  🙂

When it comes to photos, I have super shaky and not so nice photos. But with these photos you can imagine how active and cheerful my son is when we practice yoga!

I tried several days to capture some good clear photos, but those were always shaky. So, pardon me. Instead you can see how this Mini Me Yoga program makes my kid so cheerful and exciting!

So, as a mom I always concern these precautions and hope these ideas are beneficial for you too.

So, use such a product and don’t forget to pack in your bag when you are heading on a holiday.

Try XXL Box Secure Cloud Storage to Store Your Images

As a mom I take lot of moments of my son and there are lot of photos which we’ve taken during our holidays and family moments. These photos are really precious moments. Specially, photos like my son’s first steps, the first time he started crawling or even the first time we saw him just after delivery are so precious and those photos bring us back to those moments. All these are precious moments for any parent and that is why we need to protect the images including backups.

Secure cloud storage

In past I have few times experiences which my computer got virus attack and we lost most of our photos. After these incidents I really afraid of losing our family photos, so I take few precautions. One method is I always print photo books, so the most important photos are in the albums. Other than that I also use external hard drive to save some of the albums. However, now my computers and even the phones are full of images, so I need to find a way to keep backups of the family images.

XXL Box Secure Cloud Storage

I recently found that online storage is a great solution for back up image files. XXL Box is a great service provider for secure cloud storage, so after checking details of this service I signed up and started storing my image files.
