The Talented Face Painter- Mom Blogger Dianaruth from Chubby Anecdotes March 18 2014, 1 Comment

Today, tinylittleone gets to know the very talented Dianaruth, a mom who blogs at ChubbyAnecdotes.net. 

Tell us a little about yourself.

I am a proud mother of 3, a somewhere-in-the-middle mum – neither a FTWM (Full-time Working Mum) nor a full-fledged SAHM (Stay-At-Home Mum). On weekdays, I work from home and check into office 3 mornings in a week. I also run a little face painting business, www.ChubbyFairy.com, which operates mostly on weekends, when I switch to party mode and face paint at parties and events. In between and apart from my work schedule, I watch Disney Junior with my kids, dance (okay, try to dance) to Hi-5, bake, craft and blog whenever my schedule allows, run after my kids in the park, while they run after me at home. 

 

I was a full-time working mum (FTWM) prior to my current part-time and ad-hoc work arrangement. It wasn’t easy to bid my career goodbye – it was in fact, very difficult. Especially, shortly after the honeymoon period of being a SAHM, I feel a sense of lost like never before. I am therefore, very grateful for my current work arrangement with my employer. It isn’t just a job to pay the bills, it is to me a lifeline back to my professional life, when the kids are older. 

Becoming a mum is the best thing that has happened to me, and among the best decisions I’ve made. I know (much to my dismay) that I would be left way behind by my peers when I return to full-time work, the day my kids are old enough for me to do so. But, I also know that the kids are worth it, and if I could give up part of my dreams to empower my children to fulfil theirs, I should have no complains or regrets. Just as my mum had gave up hers for my siblings and I.  

You are a mummy to.. 

3 bubbly kids - Shanice (7 yo), Renee (5 yo) and Nat (3 yo).
I call them my do,re,mi. Get to know do,re,mi.

 

When and why did you start blogging?

I started blogging shortly after Renee was born. I used to keep scrapbooks of Shanice’s development but found it difficult to catch up with 2 young children. Hence, I opted for a faster, cheaper and easier way to archive our memories – blog.  

Why should readers read your blog?

Why would they not? *thick skin* LOL! 

ChubbyAnecdotes.net is a blog for all things crafty and fun. Because it’s my blog, it’s pretty much like me (and my kids), okay, more my kids than me. It’s colourful, filled with kids’ crafts and the goodies we baked at home and with friends. From time to time, I enjoy working on advertorials and product reviews, pretty much like little pet projects I take up when I have the time or when something exciting comes my way. 

What or who inspire you to keep doing what you do?

My kids. Nothing and no one inspires me more than my children. I would have been pretty much wasted without them. They kept my foot on the ground and open up my imagination- even the sky isn’t the limit. I have always been breathing but I’ve only started living a wholesome life after they came into my life. 

Describe your parenting style.

Almost-anything goes. 
I am quite chill about most things. My hubby likes to use the term “free-ranging” on the kids. Think Aussie outback and kangaroos, yup, that’s pretty much what it’s like at home – little kids running and bouncing around while I hop around, trying not to step on some toy on the floor ☺.  My home is usually in a mess, that’s the norm for us, and its fine. Just don’t ask the husband what he thinks ☺ 


How do you balance work, blog and family?

Ah, I am not good at juggling (I don’t just mean motorskills), as for time management *ermham, I hope I won’t regret writing it down*, it is non-existence outside office hours – It is a trained behaviour for work, not something natural to me… I guess I’ve said enough. Haha. 

So back to your question, how do I balance? Well, I don’t - not alone. They say it takes a village to raise a kid. I have my ‘village’ to thank for supporting me (and my kids). 

If there’s one benefit of growing up in a big family (having 3 siblings), is that there are people I can fall back on. That’s one thing, I am sure my kids will grow up to appreciate. I am very blessed to have a super-able helper, she is kind, loyal and great with kids. She has been working with us since Renee’s (my second child) birth. Good friends and neighbours are great help too. I probably live in the nicest neighbourhood - my neighbours are awesome with kids. Sometimes, the kids would run over to Aunty T’s house for tea and play with her baby while I take a moment to do my own things. 


Your best adventures with your kids

Going anywhere with 3 kids is pretty much an adventure. We haven’t wandered too far from home with all 3 children. The furthest we went was Lego Land in Malaysia and it was fun, though I won’t say it’s the best adventure we had. It’s tough to decide which are the best adventures, as we kinda enjoy most of our outings.  But ask me again for the worst ones and I probably have a couple to share. LOL!

Crafting fun @ EatPlayLove Cafe February 24 2014, 0 Comments

My cousin was the first to know about this cosy little cafe located a few streets away from Arab Street and he thought of taking Megan there. So 5 adults and one tiny tot headed there one Sunday afternoon. That day there two consecutive kid's birthday parties so bookings were not taken, but we managed to get a seat within 10mins.
I really love the gorgeous colors and decor and the whole concept of crafting & food under one roof! I never imagined this combination would work but it was perfect. Megan signed in to get a pack of art materials and there were a lot more materials at the shelves next to the tables, which i took and made her a macaroni necklace  :) She loved it a lot and the adults too were not left out when we discovered the fun of shrink plastic. 

 

 All you need to do is get your design onto the plastic (initially it will be soft like OHP transparency), punch a hole if necessary and bake it in the toaster for a few seconds, then press it between two sheets of baking paper with a flat object. Your end result will be a solid plastic with ur own design on it. You can turn them into cute earrings, keychains or necklaces, such endless possibilities! I was kind of crazy about it and went to artfriend the next day to get more supplies! 

It's really quite a fun place to spend your day with your young ones and friends.

To My Love February 14 2014, 0 Comments


My dear Child,


The world celebrates what we call Valentine's day on February 14 today.
It's a day where people celebrate love by giving gifts, chocolates, flowers, and fine dine.
All these things will make you feel romantic, nice and lovely.
It really feels good to give and receive gifts and sweet nothings.


But don't let the world tell you when to love, or how to love.
Love is much more than all these external things.
It is found deep within our hearts, and we ought to show it daily.
And after the magic of Feb 14 is gone, we will know if Love was true or just a show.


You know I loved you before I met you.
And thank you for the chance to love you every single day.
I feel your love in your eyes, your hugs and your kisses.
And I promise that I will love you Forever.

新年快乐- Happy Lunar New Year! January 30 2014, 0 Comments

Fun Kid Activity- Make your own Pizza November 29 2013, 0 Comments

School's out for a week and so I was compelled to do fun things with Megan in this precious span of time. I was trying to think of fun activities that cost as little as possible, but pizza making turned out to be not a wallet friendly activity!

We made the base using this recipe, and the dough doubled its volume when rested for a few hours. It wasn't the fluffiest or softest pizza base i've eaten but it was easy to make and decent enough. Megan was involved in the whole process which slowed things down a lot. But it's okay, after all the point was for her to enjoy not really for me to hone my non existent pizza making skills haha!

 

 

She had this weird idea of putting the cheese at the sides of the pizza separate from the other toppings ....

I had to make two more pizza bases in a haste as there would be insufficient pizza to go round, and so the next two bases were thinner but tougher to chew. When it was freshly baked it was the nicest! I had a hard time deciding what flavour so it was a mix of parma ham and rocket leaves, scallop in japanese mayo sprinkled with japanese seasoning , portabello mushrooms and spicy salami. They're like all my favourites! Megan ate a lot of her own pizza. I guess she was very pleased that she made it herself :)

fluf Organic Cotton Lunch Bag Review October 17 2013, 0 Comments

This lovely little bag from Canada is not only eye catching but has proven to be really handy as well. I like how it's made of good quality and sturdy materials - stuff that won't fall apart on you. It is deep enough to put quite a lot of things in, and the opening is wide enough to find anything needed in a jiffy. That's important because mummies need to whip out things like tissues at a moment's notice. This bag is coming with me on short outings when it's not carrying Megan's/ my lunch. :) It's a versatile lunch bag after all!

See how pleased Megan is with her apples. But Luffy our doggie wasn't too interested in them haha! All he wanted to do was look out for birds and other dogs. 

This bag is washable, perfect for grubby kids who mess up. The lining on the inside is water resistant and can be pulled out for a quick rinse (as seen below) and ready to be used again. :D

There are other cute designs available in the tlo's store that will both please both kids and adults! I like to borrow Megan's array of lunch bags when I occasionally pack lunch to work and this bag is great as it can be folded and kept in my work bag so i'll have one less thing to carry home from work! Megan can manage this bags on her own if it's not too heavy but it's still not much of a help to me because she still wants to be carried even at 3 years old, sigh! 

This is one cute bag that is easy for kids and adults to use! And a great gift idea for any clueless gift giver :)

Review was written by TLO guest blogger Charis Tang.
fluf is found exclusively in Singapore at tinylittleone.

You are now 15 months old, and you have just learned to walk. Now you enjoy opening all our cupboards and ransacking everything. You love playing and exploring, from kitchen utensils, to boxes, to cups and anything that you can put your hand on..."

tinylittleone is joining the Fun for #septphotochallenge



Here are our posts for Day 1- Day 10.

Day 1: Starting off @sanses #septphotochallenge at 10 o'clock.

Day 2: Sunnyside ups for #breakfast always makes me happy. 

Day 3: I am furry, sometimes sweet, & other times sour. I share my name with a flightless bird, and a shoe shine product. Who am I? (Hint: #fruit)

Day 4: What I do when my snack seems too #far for my reach. 

Day 5: Have you seen a #pink snail before?

Day 6: Sometimes a #teacher is like a clothes peg, important yet unappreciated. On this day, we make them feel special. 

Day 7: Seeing #mytinylittleone having a "serious" phone conversation on an unplugged fax machine is absolutely hilarious. He never fails to make me :)

Day 8: Large #Toes, Tiny Toes.

Day 9: The symphony of spices and curries hits my nose, then comes the aroma from the Teh Tarik. That Prata is screaming at me to start, I'm drooling. My favorite #smell of breakfast.

Day 10: Cultivating the love of reading #book from young.

Guest Post: The Paintball Battle August 26 2013, 0 Comments

Today TLO is very honoured and excited to have our very first guest blogger - Charis Tang. Charis is mother to 3 year old Megan, and she is kind enough to share with us some of their Adventures together.

Hi there! I'm Charis, Tinylittleone's guest blogger! It's an honour to be able to share little snippets of outdoorsy fun of my otherwise mundane life here on this blog. 

On the Saturday after National Day, a bunch of us headed to Danga City mall for some paintball action! 5 minutes from the causeway they said, but well, the car convoys split up at the immigration and we panicked for a bit but thankfully everyone arrived eventually.

 What i liked about playing at Dynamic paintball was that they provided freshly laundered overalls to protect our clothes, and vests for everybody. Also it was indoors in an air-conditioned space with no mud (as compared to the one in SG)! We splashed 100RM on 500 paintballs each and i have to say, its totally value for money. So we donned our protection, loaded our guns and off we went!

In the heat of the battle...

What did the tiny tot do? This tender hearted 3 year old didn't quite like it! She had her ears stuffed with tissues because it could get quite loud.... and later she retreated underneath the hood of her pram. There wasn't much to do around the mall, I think it was quite deserted, but there was a secret recipe shop there for them to sit and chill.

Thankfully I had my sis and her godma to babysit her so that I could, you know,  win 3 out of 4 games played together with my team. Haha! 

We spent a total of 3 hours getting covered with paint and pain. Yup, one does not walk away with no battle scars to show for it. But that's what makes it exciting! The pain is real, you wouldn't just run into the enemy's territory on a whim!

Finally the highlight for some of us- dinner at On Kee Restaurant for some yummy chinese food. We were glad our Sing dollar is strong so that we can eat to our fill without feeling the pinch. 

It was such a fabulous time, that and the fact that it's been all work and no play so long. Looking forward to the next adventure!

tinylittleone's soft launch! May 30 2013, 0 Comments

We decided to launch our web store with a big bang at darling Seth's 1st birthday party! There was food, fun and friends galore, and the little ones all had fun trying out the Schoenhut piano while the adults were tucking into the delicious curries and pratas by Casuarina Curry. There was also a lovely photobooth set up by Josh Koo Photography where everyone could take pictures and bring home sweet memories. Every child brought home a Skip*Hop waterbottle, much to the envy of the aunties there! (Don't worry, they managed to bring home a bottle too, though at a price heh.)  

A big thank you to all for making our launch a success!

Here are some of our favourite shots from the party! Do hop by our Facebook page for more shots!
