Back to Reality

My blog has been forming cobwebs I know. Truth is, I don’t feel bad about it. Please don’t hate me for saying so. These last three months, I intentionally went “offline” so I can focus on taking care of my two babies. Well three babies, if I were to add the husband to the mix. … 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

Memories in Taal + Thoughts on Marriage

Memories in Taal + Thoughts on Marriage

On July 20, we trooped to Talisay Batangas for an intimate affair. Sharing a few snaps of that special weekend. Special thanks to our friend who took these photos (you know who you are). He really surprised us with his mad photography skills. Refreshing drinks by the lake A family having a private photo-op moment … 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)

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

She Lives Up to Her Name

She Lives Up to Her Name

Every time she picks up the mic, she sings like there’s no tomorrow. We can hardly understand the lyrics but I guess that doesn’t matter.   How can a three year old sing with such depth and emotion? It’s mind-boggling. Maybe next time I should post a video of her singing. Then you’ll see what … Continue reading

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

How are you enjoying your day mommies? We don’t have anything grand planned for today and that’s just the way I like it. I woke up this morning to this surprise from my three year old. She made me a card! I’m sure it came with a lot of help from her teachers in summer … Continue reading

She’s only 3 right?

She’s only 3 right?

It surprises me how at three years old, she already has her own set of “concerns”. Just the other day, she asked me (in her usual broken sentences) if I could talk to her teacher. She wanted me to tell her teacher that her name is “Tala”. So when we got to school, I took … Continue reading

Stuck

Stuck

One morning, the little girl rolled out of bed, stood up and said “Mommy something’s stuck in my hair. Please “merove (remove) it”. I asked her to turn around and what I saw made me gasp. There it was staring me in the face…a large ball of clay. It took us all morning to take … Continue reading

Moving Up

Moving Up

It was my little girl’s moving up ceremony last Friday. Back in the day, we didn’t have yearly “moving up” ceremonies. We just had graduations so this whole concept of “moving up” is completely alien to me. How times have changed. She was supposed to wear another dress with lots of pink details but since … Continue reading
