#MummiesTime with Grace (@graceytang)
by On Off Social Pte Ltd on Mar 22, 2021
We are back with another session for #MummiesTime! Our superwoman mummy, Grace, will be sharing about how she has her me-time despite juggling her job as a teacher. She has a very cute and cheerful daughter who's currently 2 and half years old!
Haha well, my body changed and I don’t get to sleep in.
So many! Best part of being a mum is hearing Charise calling me “Mama” everyday. To be able to see her being joyful, healthy, makes me happy too.
In this fast paced-society, could you share with us a tip on how you find your “me-time”!
- Sleep-train my child, so once she sleeps after 8 PM, I get my me-time and hubby time!
- Take some time off from your child (speak to your partner, get him to help look after the kids while you hang out with friends). 2-3 hours is good too!
- I do wake up earlier before my child gets up, to go for a run or walk (have some me-time) before getting back to “mum’s duties”
Could you share with us a short snippet of your birth story/stories?
It was 16 hours of labour.
I definitely had a hard pregnancy. My morning sickness was very bad, threw up until I gave birth. I got admitted to the hospital 3 times too because of my dehydration. It makes me realised, it isn’t easy being a mum but it’s so worthwhile to be one.
I love the Shy Bear teether! It’s easy to grip and there are 2 little ears on it which Charise loves to chew or bite to ease her teething itch.
Which is your favourite bib design from our Little Bearnie’s collection? What do you love about it?
Dino bib! The T-Rex is sooooo cute. Bib is soft and the pocket area catches all the fish that drops. Charise loves the Dino design as well and goes “rawr” every time we put it on for her.
She’s a drama mama, always full of expression in her daily conversation with us. Oh yes, she loves all kinds of fruits too!
Any piece of advice for new mums/mums-to-be?
Let go of some things, don’t need to be too worried or stressed about everything. Our kids will grow up just fine! :)
