I live in the east and a group of us have our helpers meet up with the babies. Any chance you are living in the east? Would love to have more such playdates for Aidan. He's a bit younger though. Born April 2009

I'm working too - I have a 14 month old. Not having any major problems at the moment.

Though I am trying to find a soccertots-equivalent in the east, and I'm looking for a music class in the east for my son. Anyone have any ideas?

Before you go straight to the cry-it-out sleep training method, please do read up on the pros and cons. Just because it works doesn't mean it's good. When a baby stops crying after an hour, you should be asking yourself if he is really feeling better or if he gave up because he no longer believes an...

tutoring is a big business here. you can work on your own time and schedule, and you don't need permission to do this if you stick to home tuition.

Young maids do not have the motherhood experience and if they do, its because they like sex better than being a mother, and your husband maybe at risk! seriously?? that's a bit much. a lot of maids have kids young because that is the culture in their country, and because they aren't taught about bi...

while I'm sure ksl has lots of good reasons for feeling as he does, a helper is not a bad option if you need help. It's better to get help if you need it than to try to cope on your own and fail.

Hi Lana,

I have a 6 month old too! Aidan is his name. We live on marine parade, near parkway. Perhaps we could meet for coffee at parkway sometime?

sounds like you eat alone a lot! ;) personally, I feel less awkward eating alone at a food court than I do at a restaurant. At food courts, nobody really pays attention to you. it's a lot more anonymous. with regard to sharing tables, there are definitely times when I don't really feel like sharing ...

Funny thing. I would probably just have thought he was a typical singaporean spitting on the sidewalk. I would never have thought that it was done as an insult to me!

I've never deleted anyone from my Facebook. My exes might still be on my facebook. I should probably check if they have deleted me! haha... the point being that just because your bf has his exes on his facebook doesn't mean he actually ever talks to them or looks at their profile or anything.

Hi All!

I'm working as well, and would love to find others in a similar situation. Playgroup on the weekend would be a great idea.

Please pm me if you managed to find or put together a playgroup.
