DIY Mom

One of the best decisions we made for our home is putting our old floorboards on the wall. I like to keep things simple and minimal, so even though I don’t decorate the whole house, decorating the wall brings some attention to any celebration and to the celebrant. I like to reuse and repurpose. HavingContinue reading “DIY Mom”

His Eye is on the Sparrow

And He watches over me and my family….. We were recently at our friends’ place, which they call The Lord’s Camp. Our girls were with their two friends. They went into the pool together while I was watching them in the front porch. I got distracted when our friends (the owners) arrived though, and IContinue reading “His Eye is on the Sparrow”

What Do You Love About Mom?

The girls gave me cards for mother’s day, and in the evening, during dinner, King asked the girls what they love about me. ❤️ So what do they love about me? Danae said that I was patient with them even though they give me gray hair. Hahaha. They always say I’m patient but I reallyContinue reading “What Do You Love About Mom?”

Radical Change

Motherhood. A beautiful gift from the Lord. But a gift that takes work and many times, lots and lots of tears. I remember the time, well one of my big moments of great frustration (believe me, there have been quite a few), I was crying out to God because I was at my wit’s end.Continue reading “Radical Change”

Mirror, mirror….

In our home, King and I always remind our daughters that the tongue has the power of life and death. God knows we struggle with this too, but it’s easier to point it out when we hear our kids saying negative words. Story of our parenting lives right? Practice what you preach. Preach what youContinue reading “Mirror, mirror….”

It’s a good thing!

I am a stay-at-home mom. Even though my older girls go to school everyday, I am with them at breakfast and after school. It’s not often that I go out, though I do drive them to their after-school and weekend activities, because the littlest one is with me. I have to plan my moves. I’mContinue reading “It’s a good thing!”

Oh Motherhood!

Oh motherhood! “Mooooooommmm?”  “Heeeeeeelllpppp!” “Can I have rice please?” When the bowl of rice is an arm’s reach away. “I can’t find it.” And IT (whatever IT is) is right there in front of her. “Mommy, look!” “Mom mom, look!” “Mommy, look at me!” All at once. “Mommy o!” “Mom, she (insert verb) me!” “Carry!” Continue reading “Oh Motherhood!”

Happy birthday Gianna (and me too?)

Facebook reminded me this week of something I said two years ago. Actually, King was the first one to remind me. He wished me a happy birthday on Gianna’s birthday, and said he remembers everything. I just smiled. I honestly did not think of it. But as I was watching a show the other day,Continue reading “Happy birthday Gianna (and me too?)”

Motherhood

Motherhood. It’s probably one (out of 3, I think) of the craziest things I got myself mixed up in. Fulfilling and life-altering, but crazy nonetheless. 🙂 From painful labor and difficult, scary, and potentially life-threatening deliveries, from bringing the breastfeeding baby wherever I had/have to go, breastfeeding while driving, playing, eating or homeschooling, drinking hotContinue reading “Motherhood”

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!”
