I’m on my way to hospital now for my follow up appointment while chloe went to school with grandparent and daddy, nothing serious just my doc manage to squeeze in a slot for me earlier in stead of initial appointment in Aug.

This weekend gonna be hectic one as the in law are here tonight we will bring them to our new house to take a look. Then tmr being then out still don’t know where to go tho, they’ve been to most of the places.

So far my ‘limit screen time’ project have been going quite well, I managed to follow my schedule and start on a book! Almost wanted to join the ask-me-something bandwagon in IG but when I see questions coming in I regretted and deleted my post. Not the questions that stop me but if I continue I’m sure this will make me keep checking on my phone which surely will broke my fast on screen time. So I went replied the question to them personally and stop the game.

This week I’m on my verbal vomit stage! Haha I couldn’t stop writing down thoughts whenever I’m get on the screen. I think it’s draw me away from browsing social media and shopping site, which is good!!

So after both normal and pelvic ultrasound scanned doctor say there’s a wall built in the uterine cavity they named it as Asherman’s syndrome. #whywhywhy This thingy prevented the administration of hormones that’s why my menses was mia for such a long time. After explaining the conditions, my Gynae then insert some screw or something in my cervix to loosen the wall and try to clean up, then i start bleeding no not menses but blood from the cervix wall from the screwing process. Why women have to go thru all this..i wonder. Doctor Tee gave me some hormone pill to help general hormones to fasten the process of getting menses. I’m asked to go back after 2 weeks if there’s still no sign of period then we need to remove it surgically. Really pray that menses will come soon so i don’t need to do that surgery.

 

Wake up call

Ming have been sharing about this article with me and friends we met over the weekend, it was about limiting screen time not for children but adult. While we are busy controlling our kids screen time for various reason – brain development, self-control, encourage real play and all but what about our own screen time? i must admit this is a wake up call to me even my mummy friend who’s on fasting on social-media sharing her thoughts on this to me God really want me to look into this part of my life.

Our phone/computer are stealing so much of our attention draw us away from our children, there’s many times that i’m suppose to spend that little time give full attention to Chloe i find myself checking on my phone chatting with my friends or checking email and social media.

How does technology interfere with our relationships with our kids?

Kids don’t need our undivided attention all the time, but they need to know that they matter to us and that there are certain times of the day and certain situations where they have our attention. There need to be times where parents can really be fully available to their kids. (source)

 Now that Chloe had completely off screen time but i found myself guilty in this screen time thingy, i’ve been trying to limit mine too in order to provide a good example to Chloe. I don’t want her growing up feeling her parents are “hypocrites” for spending so much time in front of a screen while so strictly limiting kids’ access.  (source)

These are steps i started to control my screen time.

First step: Keep phone at not-easy-to-reach position aka a corner in the bedroom instead of living room.

Second step: Set a schedule whenever Chloe is around no phone for us unless urgent, other than that i will only use my pc or phone whenever she nap or sleep at night.

Third step: Media curfew at bedtime for me and Ming, no phone on the bed. We used to spend so much time on screen for social media before bed, by the time we’re done with phone it was too late for a chat so we have to straight to bed, which is so unhealthy.

Fourth step: Reduce social media attachment, i deleted dayre and facebook app in my phone because i do not contribute on these platform anymore so instead of kepo people life i should focus and what’s really matters : my life. That’s why i write more in wordpress because this is not a social media platform to me but a platform could talk freely about your daily life or share things i do. This few day i spent some time to write after i done with work when Chloe haven’t wake up from her nap.

Fifth step: more indoor activities like reading, craft and maybe drawing which i can do together with Chloe.

The idea of going device free may be nearly impossible but i’m sure doing so can improve relationships, time management, and even sleep! Let’s hope this baby steps will help to limit our adult screen time!

Best Baby buy | Babyzen Yoyo Stroller

Actually i have few good baby buy include cot, playmat and others but this come first because i used it the longest, in daily basis and i still love it very much- Babyzen Yoyo Stroller

I’m glad that Ming always give me freedom when come to choosing baby/kid/household’s products because he think that if a sahm mum want to buy something as long as not too expensive and reasonable just buy because they are the one who going to operate and used it all the time. It’s true so guys listen to your wife, give her what she want because Happy wife = happy life.

I first come across yoyo before Chloe was born from an old friend in Malaysia, that time it was not so famous compare to bugaboo. I read thru reviews and research on pricing i decided to go with yoyo because it’s light (6.6 kg), sleek, and well made. My dad was the one who paid for our first yoyo as the first gift to Chloe, so we got an infant seat and and 6+ seat for Chloe even before she arrive.

infant seat was used for a short period because we “babycarry” Chloe a lot during her infant time although i do like the infant design very much but it’s better to save the money and just go straight to 6+ with a stroller cushion support or something.yoyo3

It is our must have whenever we go travel, that picture was taken during Chloe first oversea trip to Hong Kong. Yoyo can be taken as cabin luggage it was accepted or recognized as cabin luggage by most airline companies. Meaning you can store it on the overhead compartment without having to wait for your stored stroller to come out after landing.

Slowly i stop using baby carrier due to back pain so we stick to yoyo everytime we’re out everytime that’s Chloe in yoyo to zoo, shopping and staycation. It’s super light and slim but sturdy also easy to push around.

Then the newer version of yoyo came out at 2017 with new colors with additional pocket and bigger storage basket. So Ming and i went on to put our yoyo to sell at carousell, less than a week it was sold with a good pricing. All we need to do was top up a little for the new yoyo.

DSC03433-116I picked ginger color surprisingly my practical husband agree with my choice! Another thing about yoyo is that you can wash all the elements from the stroller with washing machine! yes washing machine! after each trip or heavily used Ming will take up all the fabric part to washed and sun dry. So our stroller now still look very clean and new. strollerOf course i’ve heard some kids doesn’t sit on stroller, but thanks God Chloe enjoy her ride very much till today she sit on the stroller to school and back home everyday, we used it on weekend for shopping and also to church on Sunday. I would say it worth every single penny to us, thanks for serving us well yoyo.
