Preps for the Baby

Preps for the Baby

I’ve officially reached my 7th month and all the aches and pains of the third trimester are in full swing. Grogginess, pains in the pelvic area, irritability…you name it, I’ve got it. But since I’m already in the last stretch, I really need to haul my big fat a$$ in putting together stuff for ze … Continue reading

Palarong Pinoy + Food Biz

Palarong Pinoy + Food Biz

Last weekend, my kid’s school celebrated “Palarong Pinoy”. This was our second Palarong Pinoy (The first I blogged about here). Mr. D and I didn’t participate in the games anymore. Well, me for obvious reasons.  As for him, he had his hands full that day. I’ll tell you more about it later. This year, the … Continue reading

Manila Ocean Park

Manila Ocean Park

It was another fun weekend for the Diegos. We decided to take the little girl to Manila Ocean Park. Technically, this is her second time but she has no memory of the first time she was there. Note to parents: 2 years old is much too young to be taking your kid anywhere. They don’t … Continue reading

Tala-isms (Part 2)

Tala-isms (Part 2)

I asked her a few weeks ago what she learned in school during Nutrition Month. She stood up proudly and recited “Junk food is bad for you because you’ll get heart attack!“. Hmmm… I guess “scare tactic” is the latest teaching tool now in school? Forget sluggishness and ugly skin! Skip obesity altogether why dontcha. … Continue reading

He definitely didn’t get that from me haha. I am midway through my pregnancy and although things are … Continue reading

Mom Discovery: Halo Sleepsack

Mom Discovery: Halo Sleepsack

If there’s anything that freaks me out about giving birth, it’s SIDS. When I found out about it during my first pregnancy, I literally lost sleep over it! It made me a worrywart x 10! Every night, I would always check for signs that my baby girl was breathing well and with every slight movement … Continue reading

First Movie Theater Experience

First Movie Theater Experience

I’ve heard numerous stories of people ranting about their ruined movie experience due to screaming toddlers in the cinema. I myself have experienced that. As much as possible I don’t want to have to put other people through that misery. I also don’t want to be one of those parents who would keep relentlessly apologizing … Continue reading

Tala-isms (Part 1)

Kids really say the darndest things don’t they? Here are samples of just some of the shocking things straight from this chubby 3 year old’s mouth. (While watching Tarzan the Disney Musicale in Meralco Theater) “Mommy pagmagki-kiss na si Tarzan and Jane (when Tarzan and Jane are about to kiss), don’t close my eyes okay?” … Continue reading

Things that Make me Smile

Things that Make me Smile

Happy 1st of July everyone! How’s the first of the month treating you? If the past months have been so-so for you, I sure hope that things will turn around this second half of the year. Wait a minute…did I just say second half of the year?! Golly geez…time sure flies! Anyway, thought I’d share … Continue reading

The Bump Makes a Debut!

Dear Readers, When I said in my previous posts that I’ve had a lot on my mind recently, well…this is basically all I’ve … Continue reading
