Mom-venger!

The Avengers was awesome! I loved each of the avengers, but Hulk was my favorite! Yesterday, I realized that I act like one avenger at different parts or moments of the day. I realized that I am a MOM-VENGER haha. What happened yesterday was the usual — arguments, bickering, whining. As I started letting outContinue reading “Mom-venger!”

How well do you know your child?

Because Danae’s 6 and Noelle’s already almost 3, their personalities are more evident than ever. It definitely showed during our recent trip. For one, well this one’s not new at all, they’re both witty and funny. Years ago, Danae at age 3 exclaimed as we landed in Manila probably from Cagayan de Oro, “Thank youContinue reading “How well do you know your child?”

good news and bad news

Danae has had fever since Sunday last week. Thinking it was just a common virus, we treated the fever and we were somewhat confident it would be gone by the 3rd day. To make the long story short, she was diagnosed by a pediatrician with acute bronchitis on the 4th day. But because she hadContinue reading “good news and bad news”

Ten Times Better Already

We named Danae after Daniel of the Bible. He’s one of our favorite people, along with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. They had great faith and courage, and were ten times better than their counterparts. But before I continue, this blog is in NO WAY AIMED TO MAKE YOU COMPARE YOUR KIDS or other kids toContinue reading “Ten Times Better Already”

SUPER MOM!

For the past week, we have had no household help except for our handy man, who thankfully washes our cookware and runs errands for me sometimes. Our helper is on leave till the first week of June, which means 2 more weeks of this — no one to clean for us, cook for us, washContinue reading “SUPER MOM!”

HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY?

I know it’s mothers’ day and this should be a tribute to all moms. It’s not. I want to honor my husband. Weird, right? Well, not really. I often hear people tell me I’m a good mom, that I’m raising my kids well, that I should take some credit. I don’t disagree, but I reallyContinue reading “HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY?”

MY JOY

Last Monday, our family went on a day-trip to the beach. It was absolutely awesome. And in the afternoon, as I was sitting on the shore, soaking up the sun, I just couldn’t help but look at my eldest daughter. Noelle was resting in the dining parasol at that time. I was just quietly watchingContinue reading “MY JOY”

“YOU’RE NOT LISTENING TO ME!!!”

Danae and I were at the dining table yesterday, eating and talking. I thought we were talking about what happened in Japan, so when she was saying something about a storm, I immediately corrected her and said that it wasn’t a storm but an earthquake. She got confused and I proceeded to tell her aboutContinue reading ““YOU’RE NOT LISTENING TO ME!!!””

INFANTICIPATING?

Well, I thought I might be, but my second pregnancy test after 3 weeks’ delay in my monthly period said otherwise. Negative! Attending the Infanticipating book launch would have been timely and a perfect way to start or end this blog haha. Or could it be that I don’t know that I’m pregnant and I’llContinue reading “INFANTICIPATING?”

WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK

Danae has had on and off fever since Sunday. Not only that, it would spike to as high as 39.5, then disappear. What made it more weird was that Danae was active and she didn’t lose her appetite. She was a bit cranky of course, but that’s normal when kids are sick with cough andContinue reading “WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK”
