Another Milestone for my Blog!

8 Awesome Comments!
Greetings to all of you... I think I have finally got most of the stuff ready... I have previously blogged about being busy with a project and won't be able to blog as often as I used to... so here it is...

I have finally achieved another milestone for my blog! 

I now have my own blog domain!!

From now on, please redirect your follows, bookmarks and subscriptions (or whatever you use to follow my blog) to the following URL: http://www.imafulltimemummy.com/

FYI, the web design and images you see on my new blog domain are all done by myself. Am not tooting my own horn or saying it's great, I just want to point out that its all done by myself, so please kindly excuse the lousy and substandard designs. Why I did not reuse back the design you see on this blogspot blog is because it doesn't belong to me. I downloaded the template from one of the many great blogspot templates website, I love it of course but it's time to finally give my own blog domain its own identity right?

As a SAHM, I have to think of ways of NOT to simply spend money, although blogging is one of my passions, I still couldn't stomach the thought of forking out a high sum of money to get a web designer to designs all the nice layout and images for me... so, the easiest and most economical way is to do it myself! :D 

Of course, I do get some help when it comes to adding in some scripting into the web page (especially for the Google Friend Connect widget) cos I'm not a web programmer, so I had to rely on my hubby's help on this one.

So anyway, I hope that you would kindly click on the Google Friend Connect widget you see at the top right sidebar on my new blog domain and join in to be my follower. I'll blogged more about my experiences and journey into this new blog domain milestone in my new blog. 

For those of you who have participated in my Artiwood Letter giveaway (ending 30th June 2010), don't worry, I'll definitely honor the giveaway and will announce the winner in my new blog. 

Rest assured, I have a few product reviews and giveaways lining up waiting for their turns to be posted in my new blog, so keep safe and thank you for your continuous support. 

See you guys in my new blog domain (http://www.imafulltimemummy.com/)! :D

★ Today's Awesome Discovery! ★ (Parenting Funnies)

3 Awesome Comments!
#1 - Daddy's gonna eat your fingers...


This one is for everyone who...
a) has kids
b) had kids
c) was a kid
d) knows a kid
e) is going to have kids.

I guess that means all of us!!


I was packing for my business trip and my three year old daughter was having a wonderful time playing on the bed. At one point she said, 'Daddy, look at this' , and stuck out two of her fingers.

Trying to keep her entertained, I reached out and stuck her tiny fingers in my mouth and said ,
'Daddy's gonna eat your fingers,' pretending to eat them.

I went back to packing, looked up again and my daughter was standing on the bed staring at her fingers with a devastated look on her face.

I said, 'What's wrong, honey?'

She replied, 'What happened to my bogey?'


#2 - Only mum would know

One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me, I was maybe 2 1/2 years old and had just recovered from an accident. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys.

Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home.

My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!' My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up.

Then she says, (as only a mother would know... :)

'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?


# 3 - The Middle Wife
The 'Middle Wife' by an Anonymous 2nd grade teacher

I've been teaching now for about fifteen years. I have two kids myself,but the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second grade classroom a few years back.

When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell. So I always have a few sessions with my students. It helps them get over shyness and usually, show-and-tell is pretty tame. Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes, pictures of fish they catch, stuff like that. And I never, ever place any boundaries or limitations on them. If they want to lug it in to school and talk about it, they're welcome.

Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid, takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed under her sweater. She holds up a snapshot of an infant. 'This is Luke, my baby brother, and I'm going to tell you about his birthday.'

'First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put a seed in my Mom's stomach, and Luke grew in there. He ate for nine months through an umbrella cord.'

She's standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I'm trying not to laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me. The kids are watching her in amazement.

'Then, about two Saturdays ago, my Mom starts saying and going, 'Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!' Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans. 'She walked around the house for, like an hour, 'Oh, oh, oh!' (Now this kid is doing a hysterical duck walk and groaning.)

' My Dad called the middle wife. She delivers babies, but she doesn't have a sign on the car like the Domino's man. They got my Mom to lie down in bed like this.' (Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)

'And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he got thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like psshhheew!' (This kid has her legs spread with her little hands mimicking water flowing away. It was too much!)

'Then the middle wife starts saying 'push, push,' and 'breathe, breathe. They started counting, but never even got past ten. Then, all of a sudden, out comes my brother. He was covered in yucky stuff that they all said it was from Mom's play-center, (placenta) so there must be a lot of toys inside there. When he got out, the middle wife spanked him for crawling up in there.'

Then Erica stood up, took a big theatrical bow and returned to her seat. I'm sure I applauded the loudest. Ever since then, when it's show-and-tell day, I bring my camcorder, just in case another ' Middle Wife' comes along.

What Kind Of Dad Did You Have?

12 Awesome Comments!
Came across this article and would like to share with you guys:

In my experience as a teacher, pastor, foster parent, and parent I realize that many have not had a dad to father them through life – even among those who had fathers there are many who felt they missed out on something important in their relationship.

I was privileged to grow up with a great Father. Even though I came from a family of seven siblings, dad regularly took time to talk to me, teach me about life, and give me fatherly advice. I fondly remember Saturday morning chats during my teenage and college years. It really gave me a great start in life.

A dad’s guidance of right from wrong, faith in God, the importance of family, is so important to the success of a child’s life. Being a Father is so much more than simply having a child with someone. If every dad really thought about the legacy he would leave behind, his life would be lived quite differently.

Proverbs 13:22 reads, "A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children..." (NIV)

I found that the word Father: ‘pater’ (in Greek) is from a root word signifying: "A Nourisher, Protector, and Upholder." The word father is not merely a title but a function.

Notice that the above verse from Proverbs defines who is a good man; it does not focus on the title or the fact that he is a biological father. Instead, the emphasis is on the inheritance. I believe the inheritance mentioned in this verse isn’t about money, I believe it’s talking about the legacy a man leaves in the lives of his children and others he has the privilege of affecting.

When you look back at your childhood, teen years and young adulthood, how do you feel about the legacy your father seeded into your life? If your father was less than ideal, if he was overstressed, worked too much or spent little time with you – do you feel a sense of loss? It’s perfectly normal.

What if your father was abusive, physically or emotionally? If he belittled you and caused you to doubt your value, you probably feel more than loss. There’s a space in your heart that never knew the nourishment and protection you were supposed to receive. It isn’t easy walking through life with a gaping void where a father’s love was meant to dwell.

Here’s some good news. The loving support you missed early on has certainly influenced your life and caused you pain – but there is a way to fill the void. There is a Father who longs to love and protect you – even now as an adult – even now as you may be a mother or father yourself.

I am so glad to have the perfect and best earthly dad in the world and I can never thank our Heavenly Father enough for letting me be his daughter. I wished my dad know that I love him dearly and prayed that he will continue to watch over us with mum from up there...Happy Father's day, Dad!
