Celebrating Spring

Today was the Easter/Spring hat parade at Luella's nursery... Very sweet event. 

Wishing you all a great spring break with family and friends!


  1. Like your blog. great idea!


  2. Thank you! Sweet of you.
    Also just check out your blog... very cool... I am your new "follower" :).
    Happy weekend.

  3. Hi Emily...I recently came across your blog. My husband and I will be relocating to Al Ain in a few months and I have a ton of "mommy" questions. I was hoping you'd be able to answer some for me. My son is 13 months and I am expecting my second in November. I realize your daughter is older, but I would very much like to know what is available over there in the way of infant formula, over the counter meds for young children (ie. infant pain reliever drops like ibuprophen), selection of organic food/baby food, availability of infant toys and or supplies...etc. I guess I am stressing out a little bit because I cannot bring to much with us, so we will be purchasing everything when we get there...but I don't know what we will be facing. If you know of anyone who would be better suited to answer these questions, I would be willing to make contact with any mom who could enlighten me on what to expect. Thanks so much!
    And p.s., this picture of your daughter is precious!

  4. Hello

    Thank you for your message and for reading Dubai our Sandbox!

    Don't panic, I am sure you will find most of what you will need for your baby in Al Ain. I am not so familiar with Al Ain but being the second biggest city in Abu Dhabi, it must have a good selection of supermarkets and pharmacies just like in Dubai. Usually the range of products (like baby food, formula and medicine) are good, and you will be able to adapt. No worry!

    There is also a few organic options around the UAE.

    Wishing you good luck with your relocation. It's a great adventure and I hope you will enjoy your new life in the UAE. It's a great family environment.

    Feel free to contact me at: if you need! :)

    All the best,
