Baba Got an Exciting Gift + Special JORD Watch Giveaway!

September 27, 2017

This is a sponsored post via Jord Watch in which we received a free watch in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

JORD Watch

I had been seeing this watch floating around social media for many months and always loved the wood natural look to it, especially with the blue face. Although I think it would look gorgeous on a woman’s hand I felt that this was much more suited for men. I have a very tiny wrist so large watches tend to not suit me. So when JORD reached out to me last month asking if I was interested in collaborating I thought it would be the perfect time to gift my husband this watch for Eid Al Adha (our celebration after the Pilgrimage) and also our anniversary this month!

Learning Arabic through the Alif Baa App

April 2, 2017

If your child’s primary language is English and you are trying to teach them Arabic, you will love the Alif Baa App. This iPhone/iPad based app is a great way to get your child to learn Arabic in a fun way.

Our Ethnic BackGround

Having our children grow up learning Arabic is very important to my husband since it is not our primary spoken language. My ethnicity is Yemeni Kenyan so my native language is Arabic and Swahili. My husband’s ethnicity is Eritrean and his native language is Tigrinya. For both of us, however, we grew up with English as our primary language (growing up in Dubai & America) and caught a little of our native languages but not enough to say we are proficient.

Being Muslims, the language of our Holy Book (the Quran) is Arabic so it was our natural choice to want to do our best to learn this language and also make sure it was the main language our children could speak (aside from our other native languages).
