red-ribbon-mothers-day-treat-cake-creations-buffet-bar

A pretty late post. Also something I failed to document because it’s been weeks since my phone bogged down.Anyway, enough excuses. I got invited to the Red Ribbon Red Letter Day Event for Mother’s Day at their flagship store in SM Megamall over the weekend. It was a Cake Creations Buffet Bar, which means my companion and I can cake-all-we-want for one hour.It…

Athena Milk and Crave Healthy: Created Especially for Women by Unilab

But sometimes, because men and women have different nutritional needs, it becomes important to find some that meets your dietary requirements. Like for example, women need more calcium than men because we are more prone to having osteoporosis. Calcium also affects the female hormones, and is more needed during pregnancy.That’s why it’s…

Resurrecting the Mommy Diary: Bunso’s Bedtime Blues

It’s been a while since I posted a Mommy Diary entry. To be honest, I hesitated a bit about sharing something about my kids. I don’t know if there was fear — anything can happen online — but yeah, I did stop.But I realized that I initially conceived this blog to be a personal one, to share my experiences “in, around, and outside the home.” So here I am…

To my first-born, on your 7th

One year after

Can’t believe it’s been a year.One year since your dad and I woke up at 4 AM to drive to the hospital along Marcos Highway for your scheduled arrival. I remember feeling mixed emotions — anxiety, excitement, stupor (since it was early morning) — that I babbled on until I was wheeled into the operating room where I was left alone for quite a while. Someone prepped me on…

Mommy diary: Bunso’s first hospital confinement

So, after a long while, I’m back at blogging. And with a new story to tell. Not a very happy story, but…See, Thursday last week (as of this writing), we rushed Ayla, our 7-month-old daughter, to the hospital. The night before, she suddenly had fever. At 3 AM, her temperature wasn’t going down and we couldn’t wait until morning to take her to her…

Zee, my drama princess

“Mommy, sama ako sa office…””Mommy, uwi ka na…””Love mo ako, mommy?”Lately, these words have been uttered by my daughter on a daily basis. And not just once a day, but x number of times a day.It was only recently when she’d say these things, about a couple of months ago. I’m not sure, but I guess it has something to do with the new…

Disciplining the child via “Time-In”

While browsing through the Internet, I stumbled upon a post about time-outs not being an effective way to discipline a child when he or she does something that’s not good. Some parents use time-outs when disciplining/punishing their kids by putting them in a corner where they can “think about what they did.” In the article, it says that instead of the child pondering about the wrong…

Mommy diary: Of math, my daughter, and me

Upon coming home from work last night, I immediately checked my daughter’s homework notebook to check if she needed something done for tomorrow.Reading her handwriting (which still needs some improvement), I learned that her class was going to have a quiz in Math today, about expanded notation.(My kid’s in Kinder 2 and they’re studying about expanded notation? WHUT. Even my sister was surprised that they…
