Last week I had a conversation with a friend about how parenting blogs make her feel. Her response was they make her feel inadequate. Surely, she was in the minority. If that’s how parenting blogs make people feel, why would they follow them? I conducted a poll on my Instagram stories.
Eid is around the corner and I know we are all scrambling to not only get our Eid decor up but also to plan the perfect party! It’s important for Eid to stand out in our kids’ memories as more than just another “dawat” or dinner. Lucky for you, I have you covered. Below is my detailed Eid Party Plan!
During Ramadan, we fast to detox our body so that we can feel energized. We focus on our prayers and separate ourselves from worldly desires to feel closer to Allah. We strive to show patience in our mannerism so that we can practice sabr in our life.
But, if I’m being honest, I struggle with all of those things in Ramadan. There is an expectation that during Ramadan we feel a special connection to Allah. That we spend our time in prayer and dhikr. But I feel distant from Allah, and I spend most of my time bouncing between checking the current time and iftaar time.
Alhumdolilah this year we have been blessed with such amazing decor options for Ramadan. Ranging from advent calendars to lawn decor from Days of Eid, to banners and party supplies from With a spin. All of these together probably bring the Ramadan spirit to your home for you, but how do you get your kids excited about Ramadan.
When I decided to be a stay at home mom, I had a vision of playing together and making irreplaceable memories. However, it wasn’t soon after that I realized that the memories I was giving her were far from ideal. I was too tired and preoccupied to enjoy our time together. It felt like a lose-lose situation for both us. Something had to change.
