I said “suppose” because apparently there will always be mothers or mothers to be out there who plan to get rid of their new born baby as soon as possible with various reasons. One of the reasons I got is because having or nurturing a baby is such an enormous responsibility.<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-kIqNIi7Qomk/Tkp1fPzPYFI/AAAAAAAAAzg/f2wVHO9cn-M/s1600/breastfeeding-or-bottle1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="224" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-kIqNIi7Qomk/Tkp1fPzPYFI/AAAAAAAAAzg/f2wVHO9cn-M/s320/breastfeeding-or-bottle1.jpg" width="320" /></a></div>You can’t just say:&nbsp; <br />--&gt; <i>“Alright, I’ve had enough of taking this tiny person in my womb for nine months. Now it’s your turn to take care of her from now on.”</i><br />Or<br />--&gt; <i>“I’m still feeling exhausted. Could you please take my baby away for couple of years then bring her back to me right after she can walk on her own feet.”&nbsp;</i><br /><br />Then, maybe that’s why some of those moms choose to give up and ask someone else to take their places as moms.Breastfeeding is also one of issues that mom should deal with after delivering her baby. And for me, breastfeeding is all about decision. It’s sad to see someone looks down on a mother just because she’s unable to breastfeed her baby.<br /><br />--&gt; <i>“Why don’t you breastfeed your baby? That is really irresponsible!”&nbsp;</i><br />--&gt; <i>“What?! You choose to give that synthetic milk for your baby? Ewww. What kind of mother are you?”&nbsp;</i><br /><br />I think it’s not fair. No one should ever judge a woman’s capability of becoming a mother based only on her capability of breastfeeding her baby. There are many reasons why moms unable to breastfeed their babies and turn into formula milk and I don’t see anything wrong with that. Formula milk is not poison! It was carefully formulated by the expert to support baby’s growth so that the ingredients will be as good as mom’s milk. Some said that mom becomes unable to make physical contact with her baby since she feed her with plastic bottle, which is not completely true. You still able to hug her in your arms while feed her with bottle. Anyway, feeding your baby is not the only physical contact you’re about to have when nurturing baby, right?My point is that you, moms out there have all the rights to choose whatever you want to do with your body. No one should ever judge you just because you’re different from the other side of group. You are still a mother with our without breastfeeding your baby. Just do whatever you think the best for your new born sugar. Happy nurturing! </div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% transparent; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Image Source: www.breastfeedingproblems.org</span><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-2651536913242461486?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-35018678873731103962011-06-15T12:12:00.000+07:002011-06-15T12:12:56.699+07:00Managing Online Business With A Proper Web Hosting Service<div align="left">You can say that managing a business nowadays is quite different from the way we did couples of years ago. In the past days, we usually bring our products and sell them directly to customers in need. Then some people started to use media as show case to gain more interests. It’s not uncommon for us to find certain company sent catalogues of their products via mail. Then there’s improvement when people started to use email as well.<br /><br />Then what about selling your product online? People usually pay more attention to products displayed online on a professional website. Well, I also love to spend time to look at beautiful products displayed on certain online store and sometimes buy a few of them just a moment after that. That’s the power of selling online. You don’t have to carry your entire product anywhere. Just put pictures on your website and everyone will be able to see them no matter where they are.<br /><br />So, if you’re thinking (and planning) about having an online business, make sure that you use a proper <a href="http://www.superb.net/web-hosting"><u>web hosting</u></a> or <a href="http://www.superb.net/managed-hosting"><u>managed hosting</u></a> to support you, such as <b>Superb Internet</b>. It’s important for you to have a professional and trustable website as your online store, so that your customers (or customers to be) can access your online store easily. But, if somehow you already have your own server but still need more help, then <a href="http://www.superb.net/colocation"><u>colocation</u></a> is another option for you. I hope you will be able to manage your business properly, whatever options you have there.<br /><i>This post is brought to you by a friend of mine.</i> </div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; -moz-background-origin: padding; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-3501867887373110396?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-21983118292375585212011-05-31T16:02:00.000+07:002011-05-31T16:02:53.667+07:00Expand Your Readership With Web Hosting<div align="left">Every blogger like me wants their thoughts to be spread and read by lots and lots of people out there. Because it's actually the main idea of why you should have your own blog in the first place. If you think that no one should able to reach and know you through your article, then why bother to make a blog then? Use an old fashioned style diary with a cute lock outside to prevent anyone from peeking.<br /><br />Since you want to share your opinion with other or even want to start a discussion with your readers, you need to have and manage a proper blog for it. An accessible blog/personal website will be a great advantage for you to gain more readers. And for this, you need to choose a right <a href="http://www.webhostingfan.com/"><u>web hosting</u></a> to support you. As a matter of fact, web hosting can be used for other purposes too, such as promotion, information, online shop or public service. It will help you reach more readers even from different countries, especially if you use the internationally known language, English, as your main language in your blog/personal website.<br /><br />Of course they will provide you with many options first before you make any decision by reading their <a href="http://www.webhostingfan.com/reviews/"><u>review</u></a>. Choose one from the list according to your need and budget.

My pregnancy is getting older and my due date is getting closer, about 3 months again. I've been reading a lot about contaminated formula milk in my country before especially formula milk for new born babies. It really makes me hesitated to feed my new born baby with formula milk. I plan to purely breastfeed him for at least 6 months before introducing formula milk as additional. And that's a huge plan!<br /><br />Because I already have a 4 years daughter right now and she needs a different kind of attention right now. I never use a nanny service before because I can't simply imagine anyone else will ever take care of her as best as I could do. That's why I choose to resign from my previous job and become a stay at home mom. And I make it. I manage to raise my first daughter by myself until 4 years old. But by the coming of my second child everything would be different. I don't think I'll be able to breastfeed my newborn baby and at the same time nursing my 4 years old daughter all by myself. I can imagine that it would be very hectic for me. The only way out is to find more help and support.<br /><br />I'm going to need a nanny eventually, no matter how hesitated I am about it. I've been trying to find a qualified and credible nanny for about 3 months now and end up with nothing. Meanwhile, my due date is getting closer. It makes me hold my breath just to imagine how hectic the situation with me in the next few years. Being a mother is never easy and it's going to be harder and harder. May God help me to take care His two amazing miracles in the future.</div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="border: 0 !important; background: transparent;"/><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-5756733737401137007?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-17625639361026567492011-04-02T07:22:00.000+07:002011-04-02T07:22:22.732+07:00My Baby's Kicks<div align="left">Every time I feel his kicks inside my belly, I just can't stop <a href="http://www.femalestuffs.com/"><b>smiling</b></a> no matter how sleepy I am.The funny thing is this is my second <a href="http://rismahutabarat.blogspot.com/"><b>pregnancy</b></a>.

So when you've found one, you will try your best to keep the nanny with you and please her with everything she wants. By doing so, you hope your kid will be happy and in a good care of a loving and professional nanny. And at the same time, the nanny feels comfortable to work in your house and willing to stay for a long time.<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Yv3wm1c7Kxc/TXSgxA4oLBI/AAAAAAAAAy8/fOtaaSH3sDw/s1600/nanny.bmp" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="114" src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Yv3wm1c7Kxc/TXSgxA4oLBI/AAAAAAAAAy8/fOtaaSH3sDw/s320/nanny.bmp" width="320" /></a></div>But, watch out, mommies! Your kids could become so attached to the <a href="http://www.femalestuffs.com/"><b>nanny</b></a> and slowly forget to learn about how to be an independent person according to her/his age. Let me tell you a story about a nanny of my daughter's classmate in playgroup.<br /><br />This little girl (usually called Taya) is 3 years old. The regulation in the school is parents must leave their kids study in the class room alone. Parents can wait for their children in a special room together with other parents. But no adult people is allowed inside the class room except for the teacher/s. If your kid is new, you can accompany her/him for the first three days only, after that you must leave the class room and wait with other parents in the waiting room. Most of the kids usually cry and upset when watching their parents leaving them inside, but it's only happened for a few days. They will soon understand that parents aren't allowed to accompany them inside the classroom and they will accept it and happily meet their parents back outside the classroom, after the class is over.<br /><br />But this little girl, Taya, has been accompanied by her <b>nanny</b> for almost 5 months inside the class room. Her nanny makes an excuse that Taya will be very upset if she leaves her alone in the classroom. But regulation is still regulation. The teacher finally insisted that the nanny must wait outside the class just like other parents did. When this happened, Taya screamed and cried so loudly, but her teacher managed to persuade her after 10 minutes. She has been told that her nanny is waiting outside, no one is going to leave her alone. She stopped crying but still refuse to study. Her teacher keeps persuades her and at least she's willing to stay inside the classroom without her nanny. Next time she'll get better.<br /><br />But outside the classroom, silly thing happens. The nanny's crying. She said she can't be separated from Taya (even for only about 2 hours!?) and the teacher shouldn't have forced her to do so. The nanny told us that Taya is so attached to her 24 hours a day. Even when she needs to go to the bathroom, Taya will drag her chair and wait for her exactly in front of the bathroom's door which must be left opened. Can you imagine how stupid that situation is?? Maybe the <b>nanny</b> told us the story in order to gain our sympathy and showing us how close and important she is to Taya. But, instead of looking at her with a smile and understanding, we look amazed and frowned. What kind of nurture is that?<br /><br />The nanny failed to teach Taya about independence. I wonder what's going to happen to this little girl if suddenly her <b>nanny</b> can not work and accompany her anymore. In this Taya case, I don't think that the little girl has a problem about left alone in the classroom, but the nanny is actually the person who refused to let it happens. She's so proud that she can make her employer's kid so attached to her that she doesn't care about the bad impact that Taya will face in the future. I'm sure the situation will be harder for Taya when she moves to a higher step such as Kindergarten and Primary School. When all her friends can adapt just well in the new school, Taya will still struggle with the condition that she must be separated from her nanny everyday.<br /><br />So, if you mommies hire a <b>nanny</b> to nurture your kids everyday, make sure you pay attention to this side of the story. I'm sure you want your kids to grow as independent persons who can adapt well and face everything in front of them on their own in the future. Nanny is good to help them with food, hygiene, doing homework, etc. But nanny won't stay forever, someday she will leave. And tell your kids, that they must deal with it someday. But life must go on and they still need to learn and grow bigger, even with or without the nanny beside them. That's the point. Don't let your kids so attached to them. And tell the nanny to teach your kids about Independence before she managed to make your kid so attached to her.</div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; -moz-background-origin: padding; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-8909734189041513036?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-13225914075901497962011-02-08T10:04:00.004+07:002011-07-26T14:23:23.526+07:00Home Made Meal For Kids Lunch<div align="left"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TVCydS5729I/AAAAAAAAAyw/Uu_Q2nj__-U/s1600/junk+food.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="150" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TVCydS5729I/AAAAAAAAAyw/Uu_Q2nj__-U/s200/junk+food.jpg" width="200" /></a>I think it much easier for <a href="http://rismahutabarat.blogspot.com/"><b>parents</b></a> to just give their little kids an amount of money for <a href="http://www.femalestuffs.com/"><b>allowance </b></a>without bother about how are they going to spend that money. The common purpose of this allowance is for lunch at school or to buy snacks on their spare time. But I think we still need to figure out how they spend their allowance. Little kids usually can't make a right choice for healthy food for lunch. If you just give the money and let them figure it out for themselves, then you couldn't blame them if they're getting over weight due to eating junk food everyday.<br /><br />Kids would prefer burgers, hot dogs, chicken nuggets and french fries rather than fish or vegetables. They always try to get rid those kind of healthy foods even where you're there watching them. Imagine what will happen if they can choose whatever they want without having you around. Not to mention the food's hygiene and how your kids can end up with indigestion problems.<br /><br /><div style="text-align: left;"></div>Maybe you would like to consider about preparing a home made foods for them instead of giving them allowance to buy meal for lunch. Healthy sandwich and fruit in a small cute bag which they can carry to school will be a healthier choice. You can guarantee the freshness and nutrition and maintain the hygiene level. Yes, you will going to spend more time to do this, but it's worth to do. You can find various healthy recipes for children every where (books or online) and serve it the way they like it.<br /><br />I don't hate junk food at all, because junk food is actually tasty. LoL. But I don't want my child to eat junk food everyday. I still can enjoy junk food once a week, especially on weekend. But that's all. </div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% transparent; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Image Source: www.foxnews.com</span><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-1322591407590149796?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-39332517073278391062011-02-08T08:00:00.001+07:002011-02-08T08:00:49.697+07:00Great Butt Paste For Delicate Skin <div xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'> <p>This post brought to you by <a rel='nofollow' href='http://app.socialspark.com/disclosure_clicks?oid=1057222'>Boudreaux's Butt Paste</a>.

There's been pros and cons about this so far. Some mommies say that it's okay to give vitamins to help our kids grow healthier and smarter every day. But the cons say that supplementary vitamins are not urgently needed and how mommies should think about the side effects of unnatural vitamins like that to our children.<br /><br />Indeed, I can understand all the explanation that both sides gave so far. And I think both of them are right. The pros said that <b>supplementary vitamins</b> can be used to support our kids growth and that's true. Those supplements have been clinically proven and studied by the right experts concerning the ingredients and the use of each supplement. Maybe they're not as good as the natural vitamins but not as bad as other mommies thought also.<br /><br />For the cons side which refuse to give supplementary vitamins for their kids, I found their reason is good too. Nothing better than giving our kids the real carrots to gain vitamin A then giving the a vitamin A tablet. But, what if you don't have time to prepare the proper food for your kids due to some other urgent daily business? Are you going to choose to not giving any kind of <b>supplementary vitamins </b>too? Or what if your kids refuse to eat those carrot you gave them? Are you going to force them to eat it? Kids are well known for their picky habits. So, while we teach them to love foods, we must think about their need of vitamins at the same time too.<br /><br />So, I think nothing's wrong about giving your kids supplementary vitamins each day as long as you remember that they can't replace the good from natural ingredients such as fruits and vegetables or grains and eggs. Just be a flexible mommies. If your kids enjoys every kind of food you gave them (including fruits and vegetables) and you always have spare time to make sure that they meet their correct proportion each meal according to their ages and needs, then you shouldn't need to worry about not giving your kids supplementary vitamins. Just make sure that the intake is proportional so that your kids can be avoided from Avitaminosis.<br /><br />But, if you feel that you can provide a complete package of vitamins for your kids, then supplementary vitamins are not forbidden. But they can't replace the healthy and natural foods whatsoever. Because on top of that, we, as parents, only want the best for our kids.</div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; -moz-background-origin: padding; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Image Source: www.preparednesspro.com</span><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-954455643281491546?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-43648738352711749022011-01-24T17:23:00.001+07:002011-01-24T17:23:55.348+07:00Try to be on the spot again<div align="left">Talking about pregnancy, there will always be something 'weird' to talk about. Will you believe me if I told you that I've been avoiding internet ever since I got pregnant. I left my laptop upstairs while I spent most of my time daily downstairs. I could never do that before, believe my. I can't live without my laptop. More over, I can't imagine I could ever leave my three beloved blogs like this. But this is what truly happens right now. So forgive me, my friends, if you find my blogs boring for I can't spend time to update any of my blogs these past 4 months. <br /><br />Well, at least this post is like the first time for me, now. LoL. I try to update this blog from my Blackberry instead of my laptop. Maybe next time I'll try to open my laptop once again. Alright, you may want to yell at me: "Stop blaming it on your pregnancy! It has nothing to do with it." Then how can I explain this feeling which suddenly appear right after? I can't explain it and I don't know for how long this going to take time. <br /><br />But, I'm glad I'm here this evening. LoL<br /><br />Anyway, do you a similar experience with me during your pregnancy? Tell me about something weird that your pregnancy brings you and share the story here.</div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="border: 0 !important; background: transparent;"/><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-4364873835271174902?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-9599301569926606642010-12-16T08:09:00.000+07:002010-12-16T08:09:19.358+07:00Sundial As Centerpiece for Garden<div align="left"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TQlmlFb9o7I/AAAAAAAAAyQ/aM8yEuV-8Sw/s1600/sundial.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="200" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TQlmlFb9o7I/AAAAAAAAAyQ/aM8yEuV-8Sw/s200/sundial.jpg" width="193" /></a></div>Do you have a garden in your back yard? Well, I have one in the front of my house. Some people consider gardening as a hobby, just like me. Then if you do it for hobby, you will always try to find something unique and timeless to decorate your garden beautifully. In my opinion, colorful flowers and beautiful greenery are not enough. We need something to be the centerpiece of the garden that can be used as kind of icon to represent it.<br />Some people my use fountain or a big statue as a centerpiece for their garden. Why don’t you think about using <a href="http://www.1001sundials.com/"><b>Sundials</b></a> such as <a href="http://www.1001sundials.com/sundials-collection/armilary-sundials-S1414.html"><b>garden Armillary sundials</b></a> instead? <br />Sundial has been use to tell time for a long time ago, just like watch. Well, you can still use for decorative purpose for today event for its beauty and timeless style. Choose certain sundials which made from suitable materials to prevent from damage due to weather problem. It's okay to have fountain or statue as the center of your garden, but sundial will look different on it. Buy one and enjoy your sundial in your beautiful garden.

Or perhaps, YOU need one for your own self. And I tell you, that it’s alright to use a walking cane. Walking cane has reached a different perspective right now, not only usable for elder people with health problem, but can also be use for the young ones too. As right now, walking cane has been presented better than it used to be.<br /><a href="http://www.1001walkingcanes.com/"><b>Walking Canes</b></a> become some kind of fashion statement for those who need it, because they come in fashionable way, from style to the material itself. Decorative walking canes can be found in many different colors and some of them even use strips as details. I even saw a unique one which uses a different handle, made in crown shape and look sparkling.<br />You can always find more option of <a href="http://www.1001walkingcanes.com/walking-canes-and-sticks-C1111.html"><b>walking canes for man and woman</b></a> online.

You may find a house using several different rugs in each room because different rugs can bring such a different ambiance. If you want to change the air of a room, rug is the simplest and cheapest way. Of course you can still just change your interior wall color or buy new furniture. But those both options are going to cost you more money. Why don’t just buy a unique rug then?<br />There are few kinds of rugs such as <a href="http://www.juterugshop.com/"><b>Jute Rugs</b></a> and <a href="http://www.bamboorugsandmats.com/"><b>Bamboo Rugs</b></a>. These both kinds of rugs are environmentally friendly. Jute is actually a vegetable fiber that can be spun into strong threads and the most affordable natural fibers. Meanwhile, bamboo has been well known for its versatility. It’s the fastest growing tree on earth which makes it as renewable resource.<br />Natural products like jute and bamboo usually easy to maintain, healthy and good for the environment. They are available in many beautiful colors and functions too. So not just having your rooms decorated nicely with natural fibers, you can also take part on protecting the environment at the same time.

I love this program so much. You know it’s always fun to find out about how moms in different side of this world handle their domestic stuff every day. If you moms haven’t got a chance to watch it, well you may want to spare your time to watch it sometimes. The main topic is about how modern women (mostly Caucasian moms) spend time among a <a href="http://rismahutabarat.blogspot.com/"><b>tribal family</b></a> in a remote area and learn how to be like them in daily activities.<br />These modern kind of moms who usually spoiled by the simplicity of modern equipments and electricity, must deal with poverty and different point of view about gender equality. Some of them were shocked to find out there’s a different situation out there that they can barely imagine before. Women in <b>tribal families</b> must work harder everyday and must able to take care of everybody in her house. They deal with housework in a different way than us. They plant their own vegetables, raise their own goats or pigs for dairy products and they cook for everyday meals. At the same time, these great moms must able to watch and take care of their kids (most of them have more then four kids) as well.<br />If we still have some places to go to refresh our mind after long weekdays, they almost have no place to visit. They live in a remote area and without electricity. No fancy stoves, you must learn to use woods, no comfy bathroom with a big bath tub inside to relax your body, no spa/massage, no mal to shopping around, no café where you can meet some friends and share. Nothing.<br />You will always find something valuable at the end of the show; something about how to get better and better in your life. These tribal wives love their life and refuse to change it in any way. Though we possibly think that they’re in a relatively sad situation, but they consider themselves to be happy even without fancy stuff and modern equipments. They’re still happy wives. We completely realize that we live in different circumstances, but deep inside, <u>we share the same spirit and love</u>. The moms’ spirit and love. Happy Weekend, moms…</div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; -moz-background-origin: padding; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Image Source: vis-soft.com</span><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-8214002524176778972?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com3tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-36637474157488973952010-11-13T11:13:00.001+07:002010-11-13T12:08:13.680+07:00Just What I Need<div align="left"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TN4QLBK3JvI/AAAAAAAAAxk/E0OvPuT4a98/s1600/the+cars.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="196" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TN4QLBK3JvI/AAAAAAAAAxk/E0OvPuT4a98/s200/the+cars.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><b>1.

Well, she actually came a bit faster than we're expected. We had a plan for a romantic honeymoon after our wedding ceremony and we already found just a perfect remote island. Guess what? Precisely in the next month, I didn't get my period and found out that I was pregnant. Then all I can say is: <b>"Good bye, romantic island and good bye romantic honeymoon"</b> LoL<br />So tell me, was that really what we needed? LoLoLoL<br /><br /><b>2.

We didn't stay over night, but it was a truly happy moment for us. We went back home with a smile and we didn't even dare enough to think that we'll ever have that wonderful moment again. Now when I'm remembering this, I feel a bit sad. Because right now, we can go on vacation every time we want. And that's what I call as God's grace.<br /><br /><b>3.

Tell us about a general pet peeve.</b><br />Person who cast in lot with other people's business. Come on, don't you have something to deal with yourself? Don't answer if nobody asked you. Don't come in if nobody asked you to. Just stand outside the line until you're asked to cross it. The bottom line is: mind your own business!<br /><br /><b>6. For one day, who would you like to trade places with?</b><br />Wow, this is a huge question for me because I love my place right now LoL. But, if I've given a chance, I'd like to trade places with a woman who lives in Arctic. I want to know the challenges she must deal with everyday to defeat the extremely cold environment. How she manages her house (or igloo?) for her family member. What she cooks for meals, and so on. But just for one day.<br /><br /><b>7. Where is your least favorite place to be?</b><br />Beach. In a hot and shiny day! It could make my skin darker and burnt which I really hate<br /><br /><b>8. What do you like about fall?</b><br />We don't have fall here. I'm jealous to all of you who got a chance to be in fall season each year. Here we only have two seasons and fall is not one of them.<br /><br /><b>9. If you or someone you know are chronically late, do you believe it's the result of poor planning or choosing to be late?</b><br />If we're talking about chronically stuff here, then "choosing to be late" will be the right reason of it. You're getting used to it and kinda enjoy it. There's why you will late over and over again. Don't blame it to the poor of planning. Because if you can't plan anything on time and got late most of the time, then you're really a stupid person!</div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; -moz-background-origin: padding; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><br /><a href="http://samanthasaturday9.blogspot.com/" onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}"><img alt="" border="0" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5489410573646628226" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_ERmSLV1iXyg/TC5N1SR7BYI/AAAAAAAAAb4/7VQMnbo_wgA/s320/holiday+logo12.jpg" style="cursor: pointer; display: block; height: 79px; margin: 0px auto 10px; text-align: center; width: 320px;" /></a><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-3663747415748897395?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com11tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-89408953034887901852010-11-12T11:19:00.001+07:002010-11-12T11:31:09.415+07:00From Phisically Painful To Comfy Pajamas<div align="left"><b>1. What is the most <a href="http://www.femalestuffs.com/">physically</a> painful thing that has ever <a href="http://rismahutabarat.blogspot.com/">happened</a> to you?</b><br />My maternity experience will be the most painful thing have ever happened to me. I wanted to give birth in the normal way and had been in painful time of contraction for 6 hours until finally I ended up in surgery room for C section in almost unconscious condition with a very low blood pressure. Turns out that there's something wrong with my my baby's position inside the womb which made her unable to get out properly. The only way to get her out is by C section. I wonder, if only I knew that there's no way for me to deliver my baby but C section, why should I feel the 6 hours of painful contraction then? And I blame this to my OB that time. And he asked for apologize. He told me that he should have known the situation before and ask me to to the C section instead. His careless thought had almost kill me and my baby. Thank God, every thing's fine at the end of the story. But, I could never forget that horrific experience ever.<br /><br /><b>2. How much sleep do you get at night?</b><br />I'm the queen of sleep LoL so, I can sleep well from 8PM to 8AM every day plus extra nap in the afternoon every time I want to. I don't have any difficulties to sleep after laying down on bed and close my eyes. My only problem is I can only sleep in laying position in . What's the big deal? Trust me, I have friends who able to sleep in sitting position or standing position for at least half and hour! But for me, no matter how sleepy I am, if I can't find some place to lay my back down, then I could never close my eyes and sleep whatsoever. Well, this is totally an endless talking, so I'm going to stop right now cause you made me thinking of taking a nap right now on 10.50AM LoL<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNzAIKsUpHI/AAAAAAAAAxc/Scl2Bio5q70/s1600/santa.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="170" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNzAIKsUpHI/AAAAAAAAAxc/Scl2Bio5q70/s200/santa.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><b>3. How long did you believe in Santa Claus? How did you find out that he does not exist?</b><br />I never believe in Santa Clause! Hey, we live in Indonesia! We don't have red fat man who loves to throw gift through fire place. We don't even have a fire place here since we don't have winter. So, we learned that Santa is a noble man from west countries who loves children. He appears only during Christmas and disappear after the festive. Then he might choose to take a rest for the next eleven months to prepare all the gifts for the next Christmas. The most strange part is that we never get any of his gifts ever! Later I found out that its because gift-giving is not the way we celebrate Christmas here in Indonesia. Christmas here is about having services in church or attending any Christmas services held by personal or groups outside the church. It also means becoming part of the services itself. Other than that, we celebrate Christmas after services by lighting candles in our front yard and decorate the synthetic Christmas tree with Christmas decoration and gather to have a pray with every family members in Christmas Eve. So, Santa Claus is just a tiny spot in our Christmas celebration here :)<br /><br /><b>4. What was the last movie you saw in a theater?</b><br /><b>The Expendables</b>. Most of my friends mock this movie and that's fine for me. I love to see <b>Jason Statham</b> in there. Muscular handsome man!<br /><br /><b>5. What do you wear to bed?</b><br />A nice and comfy pajamas. What? I don't wear lingerie, if you want to know. I don't understand why women willing to pay more money to buy expensive lingeries just to wear it under their blanket every night. Well, that's me LoL. I prefer pajamas.</div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; -moz-background-origin: padding; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Image Source: www.drapertheatre.org</span><br /><br /><br /><center><a href="http://fivecrookedhalos.blogspot.com/" target="_blank" title="Five Question Friday"><img border="0" img="" src="http://i607.photobucket.com/albums/tt155/fivecrookedhalos/th_w6r0jk.png" /></a></center><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-8940895303488790185?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com3tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-62729175455193022222010-11-10T12:40:00.000+07:002010-11-10T12:40:57.841+07:00What We have Accomplished In Our Marriage<div align="left"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNov4f1wjtI/AAAAAAAAAxU/ADEAWSoTDaU/s1600/prapat.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="160" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNov4f1wjtI/AAAAAAAAAxU/ADEAWSoTDaU/s200/prapat.jpg" width="200" /></a></div>We have been <a href="http://www.femalestuffs.com/"><b>married</b></a> for four years now and if compared to those couples who’ve been <a href="http://rismahutabarat.blogspot.com/"><b>married</b></a> for more that ten years, I consider our marriage to be a toddler LoL.<br />Maybe, you won’t find anything interesting in our marriage due to the “young age” but I’ll be happy to share it with you all.<br />Some say that marriage brings its own fortune for the couples. And I believe that our <b>marriage</b> has made our life (both of us) better and better every time. I met my husband six years ago and he already financially established at that time. Well, at least established enough to have a wife and two children. Right after we married, he moved into a different firm with a better income. After we have our first daughter, he moved again into another better firm with another better income. By the time our daughter celebrated her 3rd birthday, my loving hubby has already been in his newest firm with way better income until now.<br />We never thought to buy a new house (not yet) in the first year of our <b>marriage</b>. We still focused on saving our money to prepare everything for our kids. But in the 3rd years, somehow it changed. God bless us abundantly so that we able to expand our expectation in a relatively short time. Although we are not as rich as those we saw on TV, but we can pay all the bills, savings for different purposes, insurances, buy our own new house, and we can still have plenty left to use for vacation.<br />I don’t want a fancy life which can change our life now in a bad way. I have what I need right now and enjoy the reality that I still can spend quality time with my soul mate. So, what we have right now is a dream come true for us. But, now our expectation is getting higher and we have new dreams which need to be manifested LoL<br />I’m happy with my life and pray to God that He will always bless us abundantly. Amen!</div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; -moz-background-origin: padding; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://rodliz.info/"><img alt="Rodliz’s Nest" src="http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk178/dannyannemj/couplescorner_badge_thumb.jpg" style="border: 0pt none;" /></a></div><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-6272917545519302222?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com7tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-60149234057991867922010-11-09T10:58:00.000+07:002010-11-09T10:58:42.194+07:00This Is My 12th Day In My Hometown<div align="left"><div style="text-align: center;">This is my entry for <b><a href="http://www.femalestuffs.com/">Post It</a> <a href="http://rismahutabarat.blogspot.com/">Note Tuesday</a></b></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.mommymayonnaise.com/" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNjGBdO_XyI/AAAAAAAAAxA/-fhVaSifz7o/s1600/sticky1.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.mommymayonnaise.com/" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNjGH3X4oEI/AAAAAAAAAxE/HgrhcL_o_Oo/s1600/sticky2.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.mommymayonnaise.com/" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNjGMOnEihI/AAAAAAAAAxI/iWPXEAHDZjQ/s1600/sticky3.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.mommymayonnaise.com/" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNjGQpyC3JI/AAAAAAAAAxM/K4mXLV8In3k/s1600/sticky4.png" /></a></div></div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; -moz-background-origin: padding; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><br /><br /><center><a href="http://www.onlyparentchronicles.com/" target="_blank"><img alt="Only Parent Chronicles" src="http://i636.photobucket.com/albums/uu81/Adrienzgirl/PINT/PINTbutton3Reva.jpg" /></a></center><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-6014923405799186792?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com13tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-23923741873470167202010-11-09T09:04:00.001+07:002010-11-09T18:51:40.581+07:00Skin Care Products And Pregnancy<div align="left"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNisL93ZYlI/AAAAAAAAAw8/1jFfGDnXdFk/s1600/skincare.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="200" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNisL93ZYlI/AAAAAAAAAw8/1jFfGDnXdFk/s200/skincare.jpg" width="198" /></a></div>Theoretically, pregnant women are still allowed to use <a href="http://www.femalestuffs.com/"><b>skin care</b></a> in order to look beautiful. But you must realize that you have a huge difference between any ordinary women. You need to pay more attention to little human who grows inside you. Since everything you use will also bring impact to your child inside your womb. I choose to stop using any <a href="http://rismahutabarat.blogspot.com/"><b>skin care</b></a> treatments after knowing that I’m pregnant four years ago. But it’s okay if you feel like you still want to do the skin care rituals but be careful of chemical ingredients on it which may harm your fetus.<br />Below are some of the chemical ingredients on your skin care products that use better avoid during pregnancy, mommies.<br /><b>1. Retinoids</b><br />What: generally found in <b>skin care </b>products with anti-ageing or pimples cure on it. This can be written in several different names in package such as <i>differin, retin-A, tretinoin</i> or <i>retinol</i>.<br />Why: it could bring danger to your fetus such as incomplete step of growth, where baby can be born without certain body parts.<br /><br /><b>2. Salicylic acid</b><br />What: usually found in cleanser and toner products to reduce skin inflammation as well as exfoliation. It has similar effect with aspirin. You may recognize this as <i>AHA</i> or <i>BHA</i><br />Why: high dosage of this can cause bleeding, kidney failure to your fetus. Or deaf-mute issue after the baby is born.<br /><br /><b>3. Sunscreen</b><br />What: usually contains <i>titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, oxybenzone, dioxybenzone,</i> etc.<br />Why: some women experience allergic reaction over these chemical ingredients. Any allergic reactions should be considered seriously during pregnancy.<br /><br />Then, it’s all up to you, mommies. If you feel that none of your <b>skin care products</b> contains those three factors inside, they you feel free to continue your habit even if you’re pregnant. But, if you asked me, forget about skin care products and let the nature works for you. Pregnant women face usually looks glowing and beautiful anyway.<br /><br />And I really want to say thank you to my beautiful blogger friends, Vida in <a href="http://vichygurl.blogspot.com/"><b>The Happy Wife</b></a> for giving me this beautiful award. You are so kind...xoxo <br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNk1t-pwcyI/AAAAAAAAAxQ/M959lBmspdI/s1600/onelovelyblog11.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_nRchuqMAIoI/TNk1t-pwcyI/AAAAAAAAAxQ/M959lBmspdI/s1600/onelovelyblog11.jpg" /></a></div></div><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/254/F74AB7A312A4DA524C98B650A134AAAB.png" style="-moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous; -moz-background-origin: padding; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; border: 0pt none ! important;" /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Image Source: www.looksbuddy.com</span><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2465381258233310919-2392374187347016720?l=www.mommymayonnaise.com' alt='' /></div>Risma Hutabarathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11889418915817354300noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2465381258233310919.post-7659210272603963072010-11-07T07:35:00.000+07:002010-11-07T07:35:44.482+07:00The Blogsphere Is Fun<div align="left"><b>1.
