My Ramadan with a Toddler and Uni Finals

I can’t believe Ramadan*(check bottom) is already over and that even the supposedly long three days of Eid-feast are gone! Again, time flies and sometimes it’s so hard to keep up. This Ramadan was tough. It was tough on so many levels. I began the final exams of my fourth year in college on 4th…

Toddler Toy Favourites

If you’ve been reading my blog posts for a while, by now you probably have reached the conclusion that my son, Yunus, is quite an active child. He is only 20 months old, but moves like a rocket and has immense creativity in his daily missions of both playing and destruction. For the past few…

Reviewing 2018
