In rhyme:

I’m in my 30’s and I’m married I’m very very sweet
I like writing I like reading and I really love to eat
I’ve been married for 15 years and I’m still quite bemused
I’m a mother of 5 children who I often leave confused
I am from Saudi Arabia, from Riyadh to be precise
I wish I could invent a teleportation device
So I could spend the day in primrose hill and lower Sloan
And run away from chaos when I need to be alone
But I love the KSA and its blistering dusty heat
It’s where my family is and that you cannot beat
I have sisters and brothers who are everything to me
And a mother and a father who fill my life with glee
And little nieces and nephews round up my little tribe
They are each and all a blessing in a way I can’t describe
My blog is for my pleasure and about my little life
It’s about 4 little children and a husband and a wife
If your looking for controversy and a little shock
Then dear reader I am afraid you are out of luck
While I hope to change the world someday
For me, this is just not the way
So please enjoy and thanks for reading
Please write a comment before leaving

  1. Hi Mama Bee,
    How cool that our children are similar ages (mine: almost nine, five and a half, and 15 months).
    I have children to feed at the moment, but I’m going to pop back and read some more. Have a great day, and a big thanks for putting me on your links page. (I ‘m learning on the job, so don’t even have a links page yet!)

  2. You are really talented and your writings are very nice. Keep developing your talent. World needs women who knows how to say what they want especially if it is oposite of man’s opinion.

    • I’m trying to think of some embarrassing thing you used to do when you were a kid…. Why didn’t your mother make you take tap or something?? I’m glad you enjoyed it:) keep visiting!

  3. Surfing the waves of the web I am pleasantly stranded in this beautiful blog.

    I write under the pseudonym of Josè Pascal (a descendant of the great Colonel Aureliano Buendía).

    I invite you to visit my italian writing blog http://parolesemplici.wordpress.com/mytinbox/. I define this blog “In parole Semplici” as a “virtuacultural tin” box where they are guarded thoughts, memories, images, sounds, and simple stories. ”

    If you want to participate and to have more informations send me a letter to inparolesempli@gmail.com

    Good life and I hope to soon

  4. I love your blog. I only took a quick look at two posts.
    I am a relatively new Emirati mom. My boy is 8 months old. I am new to parenthood and live in Dubai. I have a private diary somewhere where I document something similar to what you do here, except that mine has more photos and less words. I am not a fan of posting personal family photos in public. I am also not a fan of sharing personal names lol. I can see that you are a like. You inspired me to go public, but in the style of no personal photos. I don’t know how to go about creating a similar page, but I will look around. For now, I have your blog in my favorite website list.

    • Thank you so much! I have neglected it quite a bit but I miss it and was planning a ‘come back’. As the kids get older it get s a bit more difficult to talk about them honestly. It seems like a breach of trust and privacy. I will have to pass by them what I write about them before I publish!
      Honestly just go for it. It’s so much fun and surprisingly it’s helpful to other mothers! Which is incredible.
      Thanks for reading and I promise to start writing again soon.

    • Hello,
      I need to thank you! Your comments on my blog got me reading it again and excited about it again o the point that I started writing again! I am revamping and rebranding and it’s all thanks to you! I am happy you enjoyed my blog! About to go visit yours.
