Maiden solo trip with two kids

Last Friday, I made my first trip by myself with 2 kids! It was only a short trip to the market near my place and to the playground but it was a personal accomplishment nonetheless!

Wasn’t planned though. I needed to go to the supermarket to get some stuff and decided to bring baby with me. I asked Daniel if he would like to go with me and he said yes surprisingly! He normally prefers to stay at home. So off we went. I was feeling a little nervous and reminded Daniel not to run off by himself when we were out.

It went pretty well….thankfully both boys were good and no fuss. Whole trip lasted about an hour 🙂 Certainly helps build my confidence for more solo trips with the boys in future!

Baby Ezra has not been the easiest the last few weeks. Was complaining to Ivan and he suggested that I find some way to celebrate and remember my successes and good times rather than just looking at my failures and the challenges, being the pessimist that I am. So I decided to write about milestones and this is the very first of them!


A weekday night yummy treat

I love froyo! It started out as a craving during pregnancy. When I was expecting Ezra, I was crazy over frozen yoghurt and would eat it 2-3 times a week sometimes. Most of the time, I got my froyo from Yoguru.

It has been some time since I had froyo. I have been eyeing this yoghurt shop – Milk and Honey Artisan Yoghurt at OneKM Mall near my in-law’s place every time I go there and it has been calling out to me. OneKM mall is about the only mall I can go on my own for a short trip while the baby is sleeping or has just had his milk since it is conveniently located next to my in-law’s block 🙂 Finally decided to give it a try yesterday. After dinner, the whole family went down for yoghurt.

The place was packed and we had to wait a while for a seat.

We customised a chocolate parfait one. Yes, you can customise your froyo and there are interesting toppings like macarons and brownie and of course the usual fruity ones. And it’s not just choose one topping … you have to choose topping, decoration, sauce, top tier, middle layer and a base. Lots of choices for each one. We chose macaron for toping, chocolate for decoration, chocolate sauce, middle later banana and base strawberry.

My mum-in-law ordered one of their signature yoghurt parfaits on the menu – tropical zest.

We had to wait for about 15min for our froyo by which time, we managed to get a seat. It was definitely worth the wait! Really yummy stuff. I would definitely go back again, especially since it is so convenient 🙂 Have to probably stop myself from going too often cos it’s a little pricey. $7.80 to $9.80 for the yoghurt parfaits.
