I was afraid of putting into words what my biggest challenge is at the moment, but after speaking with some amazing mothers this week, I’ve found I’m not the only one completely overwhelmed by things. Motherhood is tough. It’s a blessing, and there are so many highs, but oh so many lows.
It’s been a hectic few months doubling our family from 2 to 4! I considered myself a pretty organized person before the boys came along but I really have had to step up my game. Organizing a business, two boys, family life, international travel, getting back into fitness and running a house has meant I’m ruthless with efficiency and productivity.
Let me begin with a very honest admission; I never wanted children. I never pictured myself as a father and assumed that I would live a life of supercars and solitude, until I met Anna. With a cliche worthy of a chick flick from the 90’s, my entire outlook on life changed when I realised that I had found a life partner that I wanted to share everything with.
Let’s be clear, babies need a lot of stuff and it’s so easy to get carried away especially when there’s two of them! From lugging gear through crowded airports or just figuring out what big ticket items are actually worth it (strollers can cost upwards of AED5,000!) Hire4baby is a concept that solves both scenarios by allowing you to rent everything you’d need for a child,
I’ve been overwhelmed with the love and support my family has received over the last month with the arrival of our twin boys, and it really dawned on me for the first time how having a baby, or babies in my case, is such a life-changing experience and requires some really unique care from those around you.
I like to think of myself as pretty organised in business and life but when I got pregnant, baby brain hit hard. From having energy and being on top of everything to just feeling like I had jelly for a brain was difficult! There was no way I just stop working and chill out on the couch,
When we first found out we were expecting twins, the aspect of creating a small cute and cozy nursery took a different turn! While you don’t necessarily need two of everything, it does make it logistically more difficult to create an intimate and useful space to raise two little bundles of joy.

Yay! We’ve made it to September. How long does it feel since all those ‘get your body bikini ready’
I was at a complete loss when I set out to buy all the things we would need for our new bundles of joy joining us, times by two! I had questions like whats ISOFIX? How do you install a car seat? What kind of setup do I need for feeding if I’m not sure how breastfeeding will go or how to manage formula and bottles for two?
Maybe you’re working longer hours than you should be or perhaps you’re worried about drama with a friend. Whatever the case, getting a massage is one of those go-to solutions that can help manage stress when it wrecks havoc on our skin, digestion, sleep patterns and aches and pains.
