If you think you are patient, have a child. A teething baby will make sure you rediscover what perseverance really is. I’m even starting to think that all the pain and crankiness involved might be the root of why some cultures around the world celebrate a baby’s first tooth. The moment I saw Carl’s first tooth pushing through his baby gum line I was both ecstatic (every parent celebrates their child’s milestone as if no one has ever achieved anything similar and family WhatsApp groups are flooded with photos and heart emogis) and relieved (it meant that his fussiness was more than justified and it wasn’t just a grumpy personality in the making!)

Just like his Welcome to the Wild chocolates, which I previously shared here, Carl’s snayniyeh was done with a little tweak. I opted for the classic combination: whole wheat topped with almonds and walnuts but wanted to give the prevailing option of extra toppings that includes marshmallows and sweets in an unusual way. The milk carton idea popped up in my head as I was looking for ribbons in Creative Minds-Umm Suqeim. If you are looking for inspiration, plan a visit there and the light bulb is bound to switch on. And I say plan because you get lost in time and arts and crafts!
Again, this DIY does not have a step-by-step guide but we hope it serves as an inspiration when you are preparing something for your next occasion be it a wedding or a dinner party. Always remember, little details make all the difference.
