I am very strict with regards to the kids playing games on my iPhone. I keep a signed contracts, written in their handwriting stating the time limit and condition, hahaha. So when it’s time for them to play their games on iPhone, it’s their “me” time and they enjoy it tremendously. It’s also my trick to be able to take a close up shot like this one.

Where I come from, there’s this old wives’ tale which says that if you cut the tip of your baby’s eyelashes, then it will grow darker, thicker and longer as s/he gets older.
My first baby was 2 weeks old when I heard about this. With a pair of baby scissors, I cut just the tip of his eyelashes while he was sleeping. I’m sure he didn’t feel anything, as he continued to sleep peacefully. I have to say that the simple trick works for him. He has the most beautiful eyelashes. I wish mine are like his.
When my second baby was born, having learned the trick, I did the same. Nope, it didn’t work. He has ordinary eyelashes up to now.
So, this old wives’ tale is… just an old wives’ tale :-).
