NARCISSISM IS NECESSARY - Tried, tested and proven.

My 10 #confessionsofamom

I have already posted this #confessionsofamom that has been going around on Dayre on my account. Thought I would replicate it here.

And so I have unceremoniously plagiarised my own content for this blog. Hehehehe.

1. I only give Liam a bath every 2 days since he was born. Coz his paed said it’s okay and I am far too lazy to do it everyday.

You should give me more baths mommy cause I love it!

2. I hardly feed Liam’s fresh food. I blitz them into mush and freeze them and just break off a piece whenever I cook his porridge.

Frozen vege mush.

3. Speaking of his food, Liam still hasn’t tasted meat or fish. I just squeeze oil out of fish oil pills or put a couple of teaspoons of coconut/olive oil into his porridge to compensate for the healthy fats :P

What do you mean I am a vegetarian!?

4. I have pretended to sleep till Gareth had to wake up to rock Liam to sleep when he was a newborn.

Haven’t always been this peaceful.

5. After he was born, I didn’t want to see Liam yet cause I wasn’t “feeling it” but husband forced me to cause he believes mom and child should meet immediately if not within 24 hours. I am glad he forced me.

6. Our walking path is on a small hill accessible by stairs at a distance. But am too lazy, so I just tread up the side of the hill to get to walking path, while wearing Liam.

What the hell mom? Use the damn stairs!!!!

7. I hate cutting Liam’s nails so I don’t do it very often. I wish I could let him wear mittens till he’s old enough to cut his own nails.

8. I don’t really read to Liam (coz he keeps trying to eat them books wtf) but I try to speak to him like an adult (no babytalk) to make up for his lack of hmm intellectual advantage.

9. I listen to really loud EDM even when baby’s around. I should probably chill on this.

10. Did a number 2 when Liam was 3 months old while baby wearing him.

Okay, I actually don’t have time to look for an accompanying picture for every confession. So, lets just end with this one:

You’ve been a very naughty mummy.

STTN with Drypers Drynights

What’s STTN? If you’re already a mommy, you would definitely know what it stands for – Sleeping Through The Night.

That’s the acronym we use to refer to baby’s sleeping habit, and it’s one that all mommies wish they could use all the time! :)

One of the most important things to ensure that our babies are able to STTN is to use comfortable and absorbent diapers. And they are here in the form of Drypers Drynights.

I am thrilled that Drypers now have a range designed specifically for night time usage, because as a parent of a young child, I would really love spending what time I have resting instead of changing soiled diapers! Mommies, agree or not?

So this new Drypers Drynights is a night diaper that caters to babies aged 6 months above.

It’s designed to absorb and distribute baby’s pee with something called Longest Absorption Core, providing up to 12 hours of long-lasting dryness, giving Liam a good night sleep.

And it’s not just lip service, Liam has used Drypers Drynights for 13 hours straight actually (sorry I forgot to change his diapers) with no issues. No leakage, no rashes, and certainly no grumbling.

The diaper cover is breathable and feels just like fabric while the diaper itself contains four natural plant extracts from Aloe Vera, Chamomile, Olive Extracts and Vitamin E, helping to keep Liam’s skin fresh throughout the night.

It’s better than applying moisturiser onto his skin, which he dislikes!

The tape is easy-to-fasten and can be refastened multiple times without losing its fit and the generously wide leak guard provides protection against leakage even for a wriggly worm like my son.

Most importantly, it’s very comfortable for Liam. He seems unaware that he’s wearing Drypers Drynights unlike another diaper which he desperately always tried to claw off.

Suffice to say, STTN for Liam is pretty consistent since he began wearing Drypers Drynights :)

Of course, the other best thing about this diaper is that it’s really bang for the buck. If your baby is already 6 months old and doesn’t poop every 2 hours anymore, this is the diaper for you.

Liam approves too!

7 unimaginable ways to eat potato crisps!

Potato crisps are more than just delicious snacks. With a little bit of creativity, potato crisps can be transformed into a vital food ingredient that adds textures and flavours to your foods.

This is a cool way to impress your friends and family too.

1. In an omelette

What? Crisps in an omelette? Don’t be startled. This does work! The crunchy potato crisps turn the ordinary omelette into a healthy but naughty breakfast.

2. In a cookie

Add a handful of crushed potato crisps into your favourite cookie recipe. You will be blown away by the new dimension of flavours. Instead of chocolate rice, sprinkle crisps instead over the cookies. The subtle savouriness transform your kiddy cookies to grownup cookies.

3. With you know which hazelnut spread

Yeap, you know which hazelnut spread I am talking about. The crisps and the spread = Match made in heaven. It’s an explosion of sweet and savoury flavours. It’s about the only way these two should be eaten.

4. With honey

In continuation with the sweet + savoury trend, another amazing way to enjoy crisps is with raw honey. Just a drizzle of the liquid gold make the heart sings.

5. In a salad

You heard me right. Use potato crisps like croutons in salad as it’s actually healthier than full sized croutons made from bread!

6. With ice cream

It’s all about the textures. Make your own awesome dessert topping by sprinkling a handful of crushed potato crisps over ice cream. This turns it into something that is definitely not vanilla. Some additional chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles won’t hurt either.

7. As seasoning with everything!

Blitz potato crisps in food processor till fine, then keep in a jar in the fridge and use it like it’s salt and pepper. A little sprinkle over fried rice, stir-fried vegetables or even steamed fish. Weird but works :)

The best type of potato crisps to use is one with natural and quality garnishings such as these:

Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!
