Kids And Energy Drinks

20130329-145619.jpg

Energy drinks are under-studied, overused and can be dangerous for children and teens, CHILDREN given energy drinks are piling on the pounds because they are not active enough to burn off the extra calories, doctors have warned.

Some cans of energy drinks contain large amounts of caffeine that can sometimes equal 14 cans of soda!!

My kids are not allowed to have any type of energy drinks!
And every time they ask I say NO! They plz me! They nag! The beg! I always have the same answer! NO it is.
I used to drink power horse and red-bull in front of them and they always said to me if its not good then why do you drink it! So seriously I stopped drinking it in front of them if I wanted to have one I would make sure that I was not around the kids! That doesn’t make drinking it ok but I have to be a good role model in front of the kids.
A few days back me and the kids went to Sultan Center to get some groceries and while wondering around I came across the redbull section and I found a big note that says only allowed for 16 years and above! Good and bad that is!! Good cuz they are trying! But bad cuz 16!! Seriously!!
Energy drinks all should be not allowed to those who are younger then 18! And should be regulated

Happy Mother’s Day

Before I was a Mom –
I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got into bed.

Before I was a Mom –
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.

Before I was a Mom –
I had never been puked on – Pooped on – Spit on – Chewed on, or Peed on. I had complete control of my mind and My thoughts. I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom –
I never held down a screaming child so that doctors could do tests…or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom –
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn’t want to put it down. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn’t stop the hurt. I never knew that something so small could affect my life
so much. I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom –
I didn’t know the feeling of having my heart outside my body. I didn’t know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby. I didn’t know that bond between a mother and her child. I didn’t know that something so small could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Mom –
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay. I had never known The warmth, The joy, The love, The heartache, The wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom –
I was just Amani and now as a mom of two adorable teenagers I’m super Amani and I love it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mommies out there xoxo

That’s what I call customer service!

20130317-135936.jpg

When we have kids and picky kids we do a lot of exchange and refund don’t we!! Well I do that a lot.
Usually most stores in Kuwait some times give me a hard time if there’s a difference in the items price that I’m exchanging! And I usually have to pay something extra that I don’t need and pay more just to cover up the difference!! I hated that
I went to Nike Bede’a the other day got Adam sweat shorts, they were small on him so we went back to exchange them with sweat pants and the difference was 500 fils, they told me that I had to buy something I told them to take the 500 fills and a second later I hear the employee on the phone and I was like OMG!! Not again!! Let them just take the 500 fils!! Uuuuhhhhh
She and back and she put the sweats in the bag after she did the exchange transfer and she refunded the 500 fils back to me!! I had a big smile on my face and said that’s what I call customer service they all smiled and wished me a good day ๐Ÿ˜‰
Can’t all stores be super flexible with the customers specially when good customers walk in!!
Gotta LOVE NIKE

Mommy is texting and driving

20130314-083535.jpg

I was out with the kids, we were on our way to go check out Proud to be Kuwaiti expo ๐Ÿ™‚ and mommy was trying to read an email while driving! Ok now I know wallah I know it’s bad! It’s super bad! Shame on me!! But it an important email! Omg I can’t believe I’m making excuses for my self! Well while on the phone driving I lost it twice! The first time Adam didn’t say a thing but I could tell that he freaked out!! The second time he was like Mamaaaaaa! Be carful !
I said that I was sorry and I have everything ender control! But do I really ? At that minute I didn’t really think about it ! We were fine and nothing happened, so it was cool.
Once I left my phone I though for a second and I was like what kind of mom am I? What the heck was I thinking? How dare me!!!!! I felt so bad and so stupid I felt like the worse mom ever! And then and there I decided that I wouldn’t read emails or text while driving! You never know why could happen! And what kinda roll model do I want to set for my kids! It’s really dangerous and I always knew that! I heard stories! And saw bad accidents and its not worth going through and I wouldn’t wanna but my kids through that, the text and emails can wait but I would never forgive my self if anything wrong happened I really wouldn’t
Please people stop texting while driving and always be safe and don’t forget to wear your seat-belts
