Primary Love Language

Primary Love Language

FIND YOUR CHILDS PRIMARY LOVE LANGUAGE

Last week I attended a very interesting workshop in Princess Z’s school.The workshop was called ‘Find your child’s primary love language’ which was all about helping us (parents) to find out our child’s primary language for more love,confidence,safety,and success.

Two professional and experienced speakers
Dr.Monica MendesClinical Psychologist and Cindy can de MeeksPersonal and Professional Coach from The Valiant clinic were presented to speak in detail about this topic.Before I talk about it in more details let me tell you a bit more about The Valiant Clinic.

Spanning across 15,000 sqm and located at City Walk.Valiant Clinic is part of a vibrant residential and retail destination.It is managed and operated by the Houston methodist global health care services.It is an outpatient center for health checkup in the region with having a preventive and proactive approach to wellness and health management.They provide diagnostic services across a range of medical specialities supported by cutting edge technology and innovation that guarantee a superior patient experience.

Moving on, you all must have heard about Gary Chapman the author behind the famous book series The 5 love languages.Today I will be talking about those 5 primary love languages I learnt myself during the workshop

Like Mr.Chapman says. Attitude. Behavior. Development. Everything depends on the love relationship between you and your child. When children feel loved, they do their best.

Each child, expresses and receives love through one of the five different communication styles .Your love language may be totally different from that of your child. While you are doing all you can to show your child love, he may be hearing it as something completely opposite.

It is  highly important to uncover your child’s love language in order for you to fill up his/her love tank by feeling loved by you.

The Five Love Languages of Children, Dr.Rose Campbell and Gary Campbell discovered was that children understand love in five basic ways: physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts and acts of service. If you have several children, chances are they each understand love in a different way.

Often parents think that the ideal is to treat each child in the same way. However, a hug means more to some children than to others. So, for example if each child gets a hug, some actually receive more than others. Discovering the primary love language of each child is the key to effectively communicating love.Every child has a special way of receiving love.Take a look below at the 5 primary love languages: 👇🏻.

5 Primary love language
1.Receiving Gifts
2.Physical Touch
3.Acts Of Service
4.Quality Time
5. Words of Affirmation- This was my result

One of these five is the primary love language of your child. If you don’t speak that language, your child will not feel loved. Loving children effectively requires parents to express love in a language that the child understands.The ideal is that children learn to receive and give love in all five languages. This prepares them for good relationships as adults. Your example is the most effective method of teaching. Love your children effectively and they will learn to love others.

BALLOONEE-MAKE YOUR OWN BALLONS 

Special occasions play a huge part in ours life’s whether they are birthdays,anniversaries,graduations etc. I believe they are the best way to impress and express your love to someone.

I always make sure no matter what occasion it is it should be celebrated in a special way and the decoration should be A one (the best).

There are no parties without decorations and no decorations without balloons.Balloons 🎈 are a must in every occasion and they play a huge part in each celebration 🎉.

Many of you,like me might have struggled to leave home and reach the party shop before closing time to get a bunch of inflated balloons 🎈 at midnight. Haven’t you?(Most of the shop I know close at 10:00pm).But What if I told you now there is an easier way to celebrate occasions anytime anywhere. 😄😁😆

Recently I got introduced to Balloonee-Make your own balloons on my parents anniversary and what can I say,it indeed made their day special and my life easier.Before I tell you what exactly it is ?Here’s a peek of the decorations I did on my parents anniversary with Balloonee 👇🏻.

*Both these kits also include a guide to help you follow the instructions on how to use? and tank disposal after use.

What I love about Balloonee is that it’s  easy to use (totally a piece of cake 😊) and you have no limitations,(well on the number of balloons you do)but still you can mix and match your favorite balloon colors and shapes, for your decorations and party preparations anytime and anywhere.(you can even carry these kit around 🚗 and surprise someone last minute).The only thing is that these tanks are not refillable and must be disposed after usage (when your done just buy another one 😊).Also it does say that you can fill up 30 latex but it does only fills up 22-23. (2 got busted and the rest (x5) were left out)Nevertheless Balloonee- Make your own balloon is a great idea and concept.This simple to use kit is definitely a requirement for all your party needs.Whether it’s at midday or midnight Balloonee-Make your own balloons 🎈have surely got you covered.

MOMMY RAMADAN IFTAR @ALKHORTENT @JUMEIRAHCREEKSIDE HOTEL

Just another Ramadan day was going to get excited as I was invited to a Mommy Iftar Event at Al Khor Tent in Jumeirah CreekSide Hotel hosted by the lovely Noah (the mama behind Crafty Station) last Sunday (11th of June).

I was really excited to be a part of this event not only because I was taking Princess Z along but also because I was going to use the Careem car service for the very first time.(Getting a free…pick and drop service and back 🙂).I have had heard a lot about Careem and was excited to try it out myself.I had booked the service a day before the event (setting my time, date and location (pick-up and drop off).On the day of the event I was happy to see the driver outside my place 10mins before my scheduled time. Princess Z and I were welcomed with a chocolate date box and had a comfortable ride to the hotel.

Once we arrived we were off…following the sign boards to the crafty kids area.When we went in the room Princess Z was really happy to see all of her favorite things from a balls pit, to crafty stations,face painting ,henna application, my gym training area,slides ,sea-saws, and much more.I was a bit afraid to leave her alone at first (u know the protectiveness as a single mom) but she got so busy (all thanks to the Elite Babies & Tots care takers) that she didn’t even bother to see me off.While Princess Z was busy playing around and making friends in the crafty kids area.I got to chat with a lot of lovely ladies and make new friends 😘,making our way to the Al Khor Ramadan Tent for Iftar.

The Al Khor tent was of decent size ,covered in white drapes all around.Serving international buffet… on either sides of the entrance.There were tables arrangements in the center as well as sofa set arrangements on the side…with purple and pink colored light effects lightened up the hall.We (myself and a few other mommies) were a bit early so we were asked to be seated while we waiting for a few more people to arrive before we could start with the Iftar.During that time the waiters served us drinks.(Jallab,Orange juice or Tamarind).I went for the Jallab as it’s my favorite.

Even though there were still a few mins left for Iftar ,things started to get a bit over crowded by the buffet but anyhow I managed to get my hands on a few dishes.(mostly vegetarian)

The Amazing Partners 👍🏻

After an hour of eating i went back to the crafty kids area to check on Princess Z and to my amazement she was still having fun,participating and getting along with all the other kids (she is on of those shy types ☺️).Anyway I went in and feed her some snacks available outside.The kids snack bar was filled with marshmallows,popcorn,juices,pastries as well as other food items such as nuggets,biryani, and french fries.Princess Z gobbled on some food and went back to play.In the meantime I chatted with some mommies and clicked pictures.

Some Crafty Items Princess Z made for me in the Crafty Kids Area

When it was time to go home, Princess Z was in no mood to go and wanted to stay a bit longer but unfortunately we couldn’t as our Uber had arrived 🙂.On my way out I kissed and waved all the mommies goodbye and Noah handed all the mommies including me some heavily loaded goodie bags👇🏻☺️.

The Items in the Goodie Bag ☺️

It was surely an amazing day and a well enjoyed evening 👍🏻.Thank you Noah and the lovely partners  (Johnson’s baby,Elite Baby & Tots, Empress beauty Salon, My Gym, Careem 🚗, and Honey Bee Nursery)  for such a wonderful event.

HOW TO MAKE A NURSE CAP

As Princess Z will be celebrating The International Nurse day at her school on Thursday.I didn’t wanted to buy her the full suit available in the market.Firstly they are quite pricey and secondly, they are of one time use only so instead i decided to dress her up in full white clothes with a Nurse Cap made at home.I wasn’t very sure about it at first but then was happy with the result🙂.Below 👇🏻are the step by step instructions on how to make a Nurse Cap:

All you will need is :

-A4 size Chart Paper (I used chart paper to make it a bit stiff,any other kind of paper can be used).

-A Red/Pink Cross (Cut out from colored paper or either painted) (I got my done on the chart paper and painted it pink).

-Scotch Tape/Glue/Stapler

-Scissors

Here are the Step by Step Instructions-

Step 1: I know how we usually get an A1 size chart paper in the market.So to begin with place I placed a regular A4 printer paper on the chart paper and cut it out to get the exact size.

Step 4 : Turn the paper over

The Great Indoor Picnic Brunch @ Bazxar

The Great Indoor Picnic Brunch @ Bazxar

THE GREAT INDOOR PICNIC BRUNCH

It was an honor to be invited and spend my Saturday at the launch of The Great Indoor Picnic Brunch @ Bazxar with Princess Z.Located in the heart of DIFC this was one place I was looking forward too.

The Indoor Family Picnic

Ambience

As being a mother the most important aspect I look out for in a restaurant is kids- friendliness.A place where the kids can enjoy and keep them selves busy while we eat and chat.This new picnic brunch by bazxar (which takes place every Saturday)fits in perfectly.Casually dressed in our attire as we walked in Princess Z and I were fascinated with the setup around.Excellently decorated from grassy and greenery effect to the wooden benches and tables covered with red checked cloth to balloons tied up to the table,was very cute (definitely giving you a feeling of an outdoor picnic party).Not only this the buffet table was very well represented with non-veg and veg dishes and snacks.

The Cute Set-Up
The Buffet

Food

I know how choosy kids become If they don’t get their favorite thing to eat,refusing to try anything new.The good thing about the buffet here was that there is something for everyone.From kids favorite items like pizza,fish and chips,pasta, macaroni salad to cheese and crackers,sandwiches, sweet treats ( banana loaf,cookies,biscuits) and much more.For burger lovers there is a ‘make your own burger’ station,where beef patties are placed on a bun and topped with dressings as desired.For the drinks the regular hot and cold beverages are served,including alcohol.Not only this if your in a mood for a milkshake then ‘the Milkshake station’ is just the place for you where you can build your own and enjoy.

Activities

Princess Z was super duper excited to try out all the activities here.The first activity Princess Z started off with was Cupcake Decorating. Here she was provided with a vanilla cupcake with pink frosting and all the toppings she could ever think off from gummy bears to m&ms, rainbow sprinkles,peanut butter and many more to decorate.It didn’t take her much time to finish and gobble it 😉.Next was the Milkshake Making stop.Princess Z was full (didn’t have much space in her tummy after the heavy cupcake) so she skipped and jumped to Face Painting.As we had other plans for the evening she decided to get a painting design on her hand instead.With a henna design on one hand and a balloon in the other Princess Z was happy and satisfied enough to go home. 😁.Not only this there is also a small area where the kids can enjoy a movie 🎥 on beanbags with a bucket of popcorn 🍿.These activities are surely great enough to keep a child busy and entertained.
