Being a mommy is not an easy task but I am not complaining because motherhood as a whole is wonderful and I am truly blessed and thankful to The Almighty for this special gift. It's just that these days, (especially since the helper left us 6 months ago) I have to admit that I miss having a lil bit time to myself...
Hubby did offer to take care of the kids for 1-2 hours when he came back from his 6 months oversea assignment recently but I am not that enticed by the offer anymore. Once, I did left him with Faaz (when the twinnies were not yet around) just to realized that I came back home with a piles of "extra" work waiting for me *almost fainted* :P. I'm worried that if I leave the kids with their daddy at home nowadays, Faiqa (the hyperactive and cheeky twin) will ended up like this when I come back home...

Ok, kidding!! Fadzil is not that bad ok :P
Mommies out there, what about you then? Do you too, wished to have some "Me" time? Have you ever wished you could have some time out while Daddy dearest takes care of the kids home? and have you wonder how your spouse manage the house/the kids when you're not around?

Lifetime’s 1st Asian Production
The pilot or the 1st episode of the show has been aired on last Thursday (28th August 2014 at 9pm and encored on 31st August 2014). It's an introduction episode which introduced the 3 mothers from Singapore, Manila and Kuala Lumpur as they bid farewell to their families for a luxury getaway.
The three chosen families are:
Dad Kenneth and stay-at-home Mom Emerald have a 2.5-year-old daughter Briah who is adorable but can be quite a handful! With Dad being the sole breadwinner of the family working night shifts since Briah was born, he now has to take on one of the toughest challenges of his life to care for his daughter while Mom is away. Will he be able to handle it?
From Malaysia, meet the Jasons. Dad Jason is a motivational speaker who is a self-confessed workaholic who totally loves his job and probably often prioritizes it above his family. Mom Leishia is a homemaker and freelance writer who cares for their two daughters (4-year-old Arianna and 2.5-year-old Olivia). Will things spiral out of control when Mom is not around?
From Singapore, meet the Pangs. Dad Christopher and Mom Julie run a successful boutique real-estate company and have 3 boys (12-year-old Marcus, 8-year-old Michael and 4-year-old Matthew). Christopher and Julie often quarrel about their differing parenting principles – Dad is more for corporal punishment while Mom is all about positive reinforcement. What will happen then when Mom is away?
Interesting background, isn't it? Hihi. We'll in Episode One (I tell you because some of you might already missed it..) as the social experiment begins, Singaporean father Christopher is anxious about taking their 3 sons to a fine-dining restaurant while Malaysian dad Jason attempts to cook for the first time in his life. Left with a crying toddler on his own, Filipino father Kenneth gets close to tipping point after 24 hours without a wink of sleep.
