Summer Workshops, Activities and Classes for Kids 2019

In just a few days, we will officially say hello to Summer 2019! Aside from it being a great time to rest, summer can be children’s opportunity to develop new skills or hone their talents. Why let children waste several hours just watching videos online when we can enroll them in a worthwhile summer activity,…

Family Pictorial by Andrea Zubiri Photography

Most of our little family’s photos are not “Instragram-ready”. That’s because my husband just usually takes a quick groupie shot of us while his other hand is carrying our 15kg toddler. 😂 Well, because we don’t have a helper, it’s either we settle with the blurry selfie 🤳 or we beg a random stranger to…

The Venice Grand Canal of Metro Manila ❤️

Weekends are worth waiting for! ❤️ Whether in our bedroom or somewhere outside our comfort zone Quezon City, quality time with these two is a perfect breather.  Out of my 32 years as a QC girl (exagg, I’m definitely older than this mall), it’s my 1st time to visit Venice Grand Canal or Venice Piazza….

Scared of Momo? Go for old school activities for kids

Since we’re all scared that our little ones will be victimized by Momo and other scary stuff online, it’s time to think 🤔 of more worthwhile activities than watching videos online. Bring out the artists in them by letting them paint or draw. Read books for them or with them. Teach them to play board…

My Baby Products

I love bath and dress up time with my daughter! ❤️ That’s why I also get excited when I learn about baby bath and hygiene products, especially when they contain natural ingredients and they smell good. One of the quality baby brands in the market today is My Baby. As a brand trusted by moms for…

Fisher Price Shoes for Children

My daughter Tash has only 2 pairs of shoes. Being a practical (ok, and kuripot) mom, I believe that a toddler like her who spends 5 days in a week inside our home sweet home does not need too many shoes.  I told my husband that a few pairs of shoes are enough at least…

TOY RECO: Fisher Price Block Picking Wagon

Our 26-month-old daughter is now a certified little explorer. The so called “terrible two stage” isn’t too terrible after all when you witness your child achieve milestones one little block play at a time! 😊   Seeing her progress, I sometimes feel excited about sending her to school but I also know that she’s too young…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

There’s certainly more to LOVE than the fancy gifts and romantic dinners. Have a Happy Heart day everyday!  #valentine2019 #happyheartsday  

Best part of a working mom’s day

The best part of a #workingmom ‘s day is going back to a child so excited to spend whatever’s left of the day with her mom. And yes, I’m always willing to give up my exercise time in exchange for playtime with this little girl. 🥰

Services moms need to get by without a helper

No yaya? No problem! 😄 Many of us moms don’t have a helper, not by choice but by circumstance. Who wouldn’t want a helper when that means extra hands to get things done, right? The problem is there’s a scarcity of willing and competent full-time helpers nowadays. For New Year’s sake, let’s not dwell on…

Is your child getting enough nutrients from his milk?

Aside from a well-balanced, nutritious diet, giving your child a glass of milk has been shown to help support your child’s well-being. Aside from being a source of calcium, a glass of milk can also provide essential and important nutrients for growth and mental development. As parents, however, it is important to take a closer…

Nurture Your Child’s Gifts of Generosity and Gratitude

Are gifts starting to pile up under your Christmas tree? 🙂 Surely, we can never escape receiving gifts this joyous season.  Why?

Hello, Terrible Twos! 👋🏻

A smile that melts Mommy’s heart 💜 Our one year old is always a sweet and happy baby. But just recently, she surprised me and her Dad with unexplainable crying and shouting…at the mall! Welcome to terrible twos’ world! 😱 As first-time parents, we were so shocked, confused, annoyed, frustrated and worried. Why is she…

Learning about Dental Care for Kids at Tooth Princess Dental Clinic

My latest struggle with our one-year-old was toothbrush time. 😊 Yes, we always fought when I needed to brush her teeth. She cried, ran, and did everything to escape Mommy and the dreaded toothbrush! I tried different strategies — pretending the toothbrush was an airplane trying to get inside her mouth or saying that the…

Many things change when you already have a child.
