#MummiesTime with Qiqi (@missyqiqi)
#MummiesTime is a series that features mummies from different walks of life, sharing their tips on how to have me-time in this fast-paced society. We also ask them for tips, advices and stories to encourage new mummies on their parenting journey.

This week, we have Qiqi, a beautiful and blessed mum of four who's working as a website designer.  First-timer mummies, read on to find out how this amazing woman manages her work and also her 4 lovely children! 

How has being a mum changed your life? What’s the best part about being a mum? 

Being a mum helps me to be much stronger! The best part about being a mum is smelling your own baby without being judged (the scent of baby, I know right..) and you can get your kids to do housework for you or help to bring you water.

In this fast paced-society, could you share with us a tip on how you find your “me-time”! 

Make them sleep early. Practice sleeping early, so you can have your me-time early! I started practicing good sleeping habits the moment I bring them back from the hospital. 730pm, lights off, no sound and sleep.

Could you share with us a short snippet of your birth story/stories? 

My birth stories are actually quite simple, nothing exciting haha.. all 4 kids were induced and gone through natural birth as all of them didn't want to come out even though my water bag had burst! 

I wanted to have 4 kids since young but after having no. 2, I've tried for almost 4 years to have no.3. During those 3 years, I have experienced multiple miscarriages and abortion due to abnormal fetuses. The last straw was the abortion, I thought to myself that maybe I was not fated to have 4 kids, so I started to give away all my baby stuff, and woohoo... I got pregnant. And I thought I will be having no. 4 after didi turned 1 year old, but I found out that I was pregnant when didi was 6 months old. 

Which is your favourite teether design from our Little Bearnie’s collection?  What do you love about it? 

My favourite Little Bearnie teether is the Kawaii Foxy because I find it very cute and very easy for babies to hold.

Tell us something interesting about your child/children! 

My kids (girls) wanted me to have 10 children so they can have many siblings to play with, but they told me they just want to give birth to 1-2 kids for themselves. What?!

Any piece of advice for new mums/mums-to-be?

Your life does NOT have to revolve around your child(ren), just make sure your kid's basic needs are met. There is nothing wrong with having me-time. When you are happy, your kids will be happy. I believe in showing your child(ren) you can still empower your life, you can still learn new skills, upgrade yourself even when you are old or when you have kids.
