Today is not the best day. My two children are sick. My eldest doesn’t have school today as well, in connection with the feast of Sto. Nino. So, we all stayed home. Masaya sana kung wala silang sakit. But, with them being sick, my stress and exhaustion multiply. They’re on medication naman na, so, I’m…… Continue reading Keeping Toys at the Minimum
If there’s one thing I want to cultivate in my children aside from keeping their faith to the Lord, it would be the attitude of gratitude. No doubt about that. Why? Because I believe that a grateful heart will always lead you to God’s immeasurable love and consequently, to the most wonderful blessings in life.…… Continue reading Raising Grateful Children
On Fridays like this, you’d be able to see a more personal note from me. I plan to publish on my blog my thoughts (probably random but hopefully inspirational), advocacies, experiences, and everything else not about motherhood and money. This Friday, I was supposed to publish my “Best of 2018” but I decided to delay…… Continue reading Review: Netflix’s Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

The second quarter exams of my two schoolchildren are finally over. We can now prepare for their sembreak! It’s one of the reasons why I’m MIA the past weeks. That and the deadly quarter work deadlines. This particular quarter was challenging for us. Jonath had a bad cough. I had a bad cough. I was…… Continue reading How to Prepare Your Kids for School Exams?
I have confessed that I suck at following video tutorials. So, when the bento baon became a trend, my mama heart got a little broken because I could not prepare one for my children. At that time, buti na lang bata pa sila and they do not care about their classmates’ baon. Well, until now…… Continue reading Un-Bento Mama? No problem! Baon Tips for Kids
Hi, mamas! My last and youngest child is now a seventeen-month toddler. A toddler is one tiny human being who is oozing with awesomeness because he/she cannot talk back clearly just yet. And, all he/she does are cute antics (okay, sometimes he/she also does annoying tantrums) with her infectious smile showing his/her little teeth and…… Continue reading Quick and Easy Solutions to Your Toddler’s Messy Hair
Time flies like a busy fly! 😊 I cannot believe my last post was eleven days ago. This is an absolute setback for my blog’s traffic. Anyway, there is nothing much I can really do. I was soooo absorbed by the new (or not-so-new?) standards we need to comply with in the office. I attended…… Continue reading Note To Self: I’m in My 30s and I’m Doing Just Fine (as a Working Mom)
