when jingga was still in pre school, i always brought her just some snack for her meal box. she was only in school for 1.5 hours anyway.

but now, she’s in kindergarten. she spends longer time in school. and she asked for bigger and more serious food.

i tries to have more fun with her food. and surprisingly, now she finishes the food most of the time. i have to get up earlier to make these things. but it pays.

i read so many good books lately. i know, having a baby means i almost have no time for anything at all. but i still can read e-books during the endless breastfeeding.

this is where i leave you

it’s a funny book. and i like it right away. then i found out it turned into a movie. and yes, i watched the movie after reading the book. it took me a few days to watch the movie since it’s harder to squeeze time for movie. the movie was a flop. the book is much better.

the dressmaker of khair khana

ok. this is more serious book. from a true story set in afghanistan during the taliban rule. kamila sidiqi supported the life of her family and the women in her neighborhood by making dresses. and of course this is a secret bussiness because women was prohibited to work by the taliban.

i heard about finnish baby box a few years ago. but i didn’t have a baby at that time. it didn’t really interest me.

and now i’m having a new baby. collecting baby items before he was born. when i read an article about finish baby box, i remembered how lucky the finnish babies to receive something like that.

all of them are very useful items for newborn. when i had my firstborn, i was almost clueless what to get for the baby. and look at the design! they’re all well designed. and every few years, the content is updated.

according to this article, it helps lower the infant mortality in finland.

i read orhan’s inheritance by aline ohanesian while waiting giving birth and during breastfeeding.

at the beginning of the story, it wasn’t interesting at all. i almost quit reading it. but then, there’s a mystery in it. why orhan’s grandfather inherited their family house to a woman they’ve never heard of? i learned about armenian genocide here. it’s one of history i’ve never heard before.

now reading: this is where i leave you by jonathan tropper
