My friend, Renee has been contemplating starting a small home-based business. She bakes yummylicious cupcakes and is contemplating making a business out of it. Right now, she only bakes for friends and families.

I encouraged her to start a business. What she needs is a bigger oven and a more organised method of promoting her cupcakes. Some of my suggestions to her were to start a Facebook page and also to print business cards.

Nowadays, there are so many pretty and fanciful mom business cards where one can tailor made breathtaking beautiful calling cards. Print that in big batches and drop them around the neighbourhood and soon Renee will be on her way to expand her cupcakes business.

However, Renee is a little bit apprehensive and is afraid she can’t cope with the order. I told her if her business gets bigger, she can always expand by buying another oven.

You never know until you have tried. A friend said we must have faith in ourselves to be able to achieve something. Hopefully, Renee will find that faith because her cupcakes are really to die for.

Maybe I have gone off topic a little. There really is such a condition as pregnancy blues or pre-natal depression. It is a medical condition and if it is severe, I guess the pregnant mom ought to bring this matter to her ob-gyn attention. In this situation, the world around her is still ‘normal’ but the hormones upset made her think and feel otherwise.

However, there can also be situations where the matter is not related to the pregnancy but probably the problems exist with or without baby/pregnancy. In this case, I guess MMB hasn’t come to the level of marriage counselling yet.

About the question on whether husbands get less loving with each child, I would say that it has to do with that woman’s self-esteem. Even if she is still 36, 24, 36, (inches lar, not age) she will still have her doubts if she choose to think that she is not measuring up to her husband/friends/publics expectation. For women like these, nothing can help them except themselves. Not Marie France, not botox, not plastic surgery. Do you all get sick of reading those Speaking Up/Dear Thelma letters that say, I am fat, I am black, I am short…….?’ If I am the person answering, I will tell them -even if God gives you thinner body/fairer skin/ taller (whatever they wish for), they will still find something they are not satisfied with.

Sorry, got a bit carried away with self-esteem stuff. Want to know how men feel about getting more and more kids? Read Today’s Parents June issue. I enjoyed knowing what En. Idris feels (his original interview reply was much, much longer) about getting more kids. My conclusion is – men enjoy having lots of kids! Even my very reluctant husband (whom prefer only one kid) dreams of having lots of grandchildren in future!
