Introduction

Asalaamu Alaikum

As you can tell from the title I'm muslim and if you know the nursery rhyme about the Old Woman in the Shoe then you know I have so many kids I don't know what to do! I actually have 10! So I am looking to find others like me. I converted to Islam about 18 yrs ago and so did my two oldest kids. I'm a grandmother to one. I love baking but hate cooking and rarely do it. I might homeschool this year. I live in a small town that I hate but insha Allah one day will be able to hightail it out of here. I decided to blog to see if I liked it any better than Facebook which is getting really old fast! My hobbies are reading; mostly non-fiction, baking including cake decorating, swimming, skating and dawah. Pleased to meet all of you, hope you enjoy my blog.

  6. assalamualaikum, with 10 children you can not have time to get bored..really! I only have one ( wished have two so they can at least bother me more) and I have a lot of time to not know what to do with my other time. Keep up the good work. Enjoyed reading your soliloquy. Gave me the inspiration to write about a woman who is fated to be a mother to one. I am not complaining but everytime I met someone I knew from my younger days, they will ask the same silly question, why one? as if we can decide on that.

    Yes, its true the number of children and their gender is fated as is written in the Quran. Maybe you could open up your home and become the place to go on the block with all the kids in the neighbourhood coming over or organize activities for kids at the mosque or the park.

  34. Asalaamu Alaikum Maria, seems we are kindred spirits. You are learning from youtube? many people can do it that way but for me I have to have a live teacher for everything so I took the Wilton's courses. Insha Allah you will be successful.

  35. Masha Allah some things have changed since this intro. I now have 4 granddaughters. I can't skate due to getting MS. After having 10 kids I had two miscarriages. I still live in the same small town and I homeschool only one son who insisted on it. Alhumdullilah.
