The real reason kids don’t listen.

I just read a very interesting article on Yahoo that I thought of sharing.

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/parenting/quot-i-said-no-quot-the-real-reason-kids-dont-listen-437817/

It is a real well written article on why kids don’t listen. Mine really does not listen to anything that I have to say. I mean, I thought that as they get a little older, they would understand why we ask them to do the things we do. But noooooooooo… they really do not.
This article does shed some light on to why mine does not listen :)

Enjoy reading and all the best with your little one!

Gugampoo-Local Magician in Kuwait

Just thought I’d write a post on the magician who we hired for my son’s birthday. There might be another parent who might want a magician for their kid’s party. His contact details are as follows;

Mobile – 99508029 and 97162090

Email – gugampoo@ymail.com OR zeemagic@gmail.com.

Apparently, he also has a website (did not check to see if it works..so I guess you will have to update me :) ) – www.gugampoo.com

We hired him for a half an hour magic show as well as balloon twisting. So he brought in a clown who came in and twisted balloons for the children after the show.

Over all it was a good show…atleast the kids were happy, so that’s good.

You can call him for his rates and check on his availability.

Good Luck!

Another year…another birthday

11 march has come and gone. And so i have capped off another year full of fun, blessings, good times, homework, school trips, tantrums, laughs, and above all loads of fun with my now 6 year old.
Yea, my son turned six on 11 march. This year, we have toned down the celebrations, only because it was getting just a little too exhausting planning a kid’s bday. Don’t know about everyone else, but I just find the whole thing of making sure that ALL the kids have fun just a little too much!
This year we had a party at home with about 25 kids. The 5 older kids were the special helpers. They were incharge of the games stalls. Did I not mention that the theme was ‘carnival time’? There were 3 game stalls and the afternoon was finished off with a magic show and a visiting clown who twisted balloons for all the kids.
I managed to find a local magician- his name is Googampoo. He has reasonable pricing.
My son and the other kids really enjoyed!!!
So that’s that!
Another year, another party. :)
Until next year, that’s all about bdays!!

Would your child stand up to bullies?

Today,I read a topic that really made me to stop and think[here]. It’s an article that appeared in the Todaymom’s link on MSNBC about how would your child react when seeing another child being bullied.

It got me thinking about bullies in general. I have a son in year 1, who is frankly quite timid. While he is an extremely sweet little boy who truly and genuinely cares for another person and would not himself participate in bullying, I really do not know how he would react if someone bullies him or if he is in a situation where someone near him is being bullied.

Any insight from other moms in Kuwait on how serious is bullying is here in Kuwait schools? More specifically british schools in Kuwait?

appreciate if a teacher would also provide some input on their school’s policy on bullying.

Thanks

Similac Baby Formula Recall

Abbott Laboratories Inc said it is voluntarily recalling millions of containers of its top-selling Similac powdered infant formulas after beetles were found in the products. This recall affects fewer than 5 million units of Similac are being sold in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico and other Caribbean markets. The recalled products involve powdered Similac in plastic containers, and in 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans.

Kids who have ingested the formula end up having some degree of tummy upsets, get cranky and refuse to take in the next feed………..I mean can you blame them???

If you want to be sure that your baby formula is affected by the recall, go to the below link to check:

Abbot industries

I think some countries in the Middle East are going to totally ban Similac in their countries, like Saudi Arabia. That’s good. In today’s Arab times, Abbot Industries released an advert informing people that their product does not affect the Middle East region. But I really wouldn’t blame parents should they decide to switch formulas…. I mean I would, if I had a child still on formula.

The decision is up to you.

Shrek – Forever After – 3D

Couple of Saturday’s ago, I took my son, sister, friend and her son to watch Shrek – Forever After, the 3D version at Marina Mall, Salmiya and boy, was it a good movie.

I mean can donkey get anymore funnier :) I could totally relate to the whole mid-life crisis that Shrek seemed to be going through.

Puss was so cute………even when he was incredibly fat…those eyes…awwwwww!

My son really enjoyed the 3D thing and must admit it is the first time I took him to see a 3D movie and it was good.

Can’t wait for the Toy Story 3 to release here in Kuwait…will certainly see it and update.

Pottery Barn Kids

When driving to work today, I noticed billboards on Pottery Barn Kids and after some googling, have noticed that it is now open!! I saw the website and must say that it is really cool…must visit to pick up something.

 

I looooove the above bed! so cool sleeping in one. I saw the boards covering the possible store site at the avenues last week, so glad now I can visit the place.

Check out the website [here]

Have fun :)
