Hormones

I’m having a moment right now.  I was feeling this awkward feeling that something is missing and when I think of it, I can’t think of any.  I wanted to eat something I saw in one of the Facebook post about food recipes and when I told them (my family) that I wanted that, they all looked at me like … “What?? Are you pregnant??!” And they are looking too happy that I cringe.  I don’t want to get pregnant anymore (for so many valid reasons) and I want to enjoy my small family as it is. 


I want to go to some place, where I can be happy and just lay down and enjoy my mango shake and a slice of my favorite cheese cake, but I can’t because I have work and it requires spending more money, and my weekend is fully booked with household chores that I need to finish before the weekend ends and before I can go and stroll at the mall.  But heaven knows, I really wanted to book that one hotel in Tagaytay for days because of the discount and because I think I really deserve to have a break.



I kind of feel lonely.  I really wanted to sleep all day but you know that I can’t.  I’m thinking of a lot of things to do at the same time and then feel alone because I have to consider other factors.  Well, I blame it on my late period, it came 3 days after my due date and it’s safe to say that  all these hormones I’m feeling is because of that. It will all go away.  Oh gosh, it’s not that easy to be us (women) J

So Proud

Nathan just had their culmination activity graduating from kinder 2.  In few months now, he’ll be attending school as grade 1.  Come to think of it, my little boy is growing fast now and before I can blink an eye, he will start to do things on his own.  He’ll be celebrating his 7th birthday this year.


I am always proud of my son, he gave us headaches I know.  He’s not even perfect. He can bring out the worst in you, reminding yourself that patience is a virtue, test your blood pressure, or your level of sanity. Sometimes when things get out of hand and I question everything or go back to whatever happens or if we are doing the right thing on raising him. But when such things are questionable, he would do one thing that makes your heart swell on how proud you are for having him.


Their recent culminating activity is one proof that makes us so proud and happy.  He sings live in their mini talent showcase with his classmate and not even shy about it.  He nailed the song, he nailed his get up, he was so handsome wearing his sunglass and he totally rocks the place.  Their emcee called them the kinder garden heartthrob.  Yes, I strongly agree to that one, he's our very own heartthrob.   And even the parents, teachers and audience are congratulating them for a job well done. Definitely one of the main highlights of the program, he was so happy and he knows that he did good that he even asked for a toy from his Daddy because he said he’s very good, dancing and singing up there in the stage as if he really owns it.



He’s getting bigger and older, but on God’s grace, may he grow up happy, full of life and healthy and continue being the heartthrob J

Best Job

Its 2016 and I’ve never been busy all my life.  But I guess in a very nice way.  With two kids around you and working 5 times a week, my body sometimes says it all, all the muscle aches and even headaches got a toll of me.  But I’m not complaining, I love every single day I have with my kids and my family.  Never gets better than this.


Our baby Resha is like a whole bunch of nieces and nephews roll in to one.  At 8 months and 3 weeks, she knows how to tire up the entire family carrying her.  She will surely rock your world.  She can do a lot of things that you wouldn’t dare to leave her even for a second.  She can move around fast and she can even snatch anything from your hand and when you wanted to take it back, she will cry her hearts out.  She doesn’t want us to tie her hair.  You have to distract her when tying her hair or she will try to rip it off her head.  She recognizes her kuya Nathan, even when her brother is messing up around, she’s like a baby cheerleader showing a happy face and laughing out loud to his brother antics.  He’s the one I always use to distract baby Resha so I can change her clothes or comb her hair.  Even when I was still pregnant with her, she will notice and move around my tummy (as if jumping or anything) when her brother would cry, or laugh or sing out loud.  They can both sleep soundly when I start singing “Rock-a-bye baby” because that’s the song I sing to her Kuya when he’s sleepy and she recognize the song even now.


I am so tired every day from the gruesome traffic I endured on my way home, but the smile and the happy feet wiggling when she saw me takes it away.  Kuya Nathan will kiss me and will asked for his treat and baby Resha will lift her cute little arms to me, making this happy sound as if saying, “Take me, Mommy!”


And so it takes a small little happy smile and a kiss to take away all the worries.  I got the best job in the world.

God's blessings


Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change - James 1:17

September is almost up.  And this month is quite overwhelming.  God is good.  He blessed our family with another bundle of joy this year.  He keeps us healthy and well. I was promoted at work and we got our new car at last.  After so much planning, budgeting and everything, hubby and I decided that its time to have it. 

But what keeps me busy nowadays is the upcoming christening of our daughter.  I was planning this for months because I don’t want to cram anymore.  I already made the arrangements for the catering services, we paid for the down payment and as well as the reservations of the function hall at the Malate Catholic Church.  It was a familiar place for us since Nate was baptized there 4 years ago and also used one of their function halls.  I’m glad they didn’t raise the fee even after so many years.  It was very convenient for us that after the ceremony, the reception area is just a few steps away from the church.  I hate to see our visitors travelling under the rain or the scorching heat of the sun. So a few additional expenses is just okay with us considering the convenience it will give.

I already finalized with the cake and cupcakes designs.  I have so many additional designs for the cupcakes and cakes and I’m happy that my contacts will gladly do it.  She even gave me discounts on the delivery charge. I'm their favorite customer :)  I’m still waiting for their bank details though.

I’m still thinking on Resha’s souvenirs, I don’t want the usual souvenirs that you can put on display above your tv rack but something cute and edible.  Well, I still have few more weeks to think about it. 

The dresses, shoes and head dress of Resha are complete now.  And I’m so excited for her to put it on at  her big B.

Come to think of it, I’m more excited than anyone else.  And I will be exhausted before, during and after the event but knowing that Resha’s will finally be a Christian, it’s the best feeling in the world. 
So, thank you so much Lord.  I can’t thank you enough for giving us our precious kids.

Baby Event

It’s “BER” months again.  I’m starting to count till Christmas day.  Well, I can’t help it, it is always been like that ever since, me counting the days and but this year is extra special. We have our baby Resha now in addition with my super cute but hyper son, Nate.  I can’t help but feel the excitement for them.  We are so blessed by God by giving us our two lovely children.


Along with my best friend who also gave birth a month ahead of me, we are helping each other with our daughters baptismal this October, when she is already set with the reception venue date and church, we still need to go to Malate Church for the possible date of Resha’s baptismal date tomorrow and along with the 1-hour seminar to follow.  I’m done informing the godparents, got all their full names and advised of the tentative date.


Though I already talked to the cake and cupcake makers, I still don’t send the final designs since we need to guarantee the baptismal date.  We agreed to use our favorite caterer (the one we also have during Nate’s baptismal) but we need to know if the functions rooms at Malate Church is available and how much since its been 5 years since Nate’s event happened there.


I still have so much to prepare and plan.  But now, all I know that it’s TGIF and I will use the weekend to enjoy and have a wonderful time with my family. 


Happy Weekend, blogger friends! God bless!

Remember When

I have this kind of thing or whatever you wanted it to call but I love looking on wedding dresses.  Until now that I am into my 11 years of being married, I still like to see those beautiful laces and styles of a wedding dress.  I still recall how I browse the internet looking a perfect wedding dress for me when my husband then boyfriend of 4 years finally proposed and I said, YES! :0  And when I see one, I know it’s perfect for me.


Those tulle beaded dress, satin and French laces and long trains fascinates me.  I wish I can design but I can’t even draw a single line of body shapes and maybe that’s not my thing.  When my sister got married before me, I suggest on her wedding gown design but it’s mostly her that decides on what style to wear, after all, it’s her big day. 


So when I’m thinking on the day that my only daughter finally marries, I hope I can suggest on the designs while jumping up and down out of excitement but hey, she’s only 4 months old! My husband will likely screen all potential suitors and will insist she has to be 30 years old before settling down.  You know, father will probably do that and will think like that when it comes to their daughter.  Me, I’m old enough when I finally settle down and my father kept on asking me when I will get married. Ha-ha-ha!


So now, I will still go on browsing those beautiful wedding dress online and dream about it.

Best Year Ever

I can proudly admit that this year is one of the best year for me, for my family, work, love and I thank our Lord God every day for that.  But most of all was having our precious daughter, Resha who came to our life unexpectedly but what a blast! She’s our angel, our princess and our gem.  Her big brother, Nate is equally delighted that he can now see and talk to her sister in flesh instead of just touching my tummy whenever his sister is moving around.


Aside from some minor uneasy situations involving their health, I thank our Lord that they always recovered easily.  They are such a fighter like me :) Nathan told me one afternoon that he’s our prince, baby Resha is the princess, I’m their queen and their Dad is the king.  Having my family around and in good health is like being royals in every way.  They are my life.


August is my birth month, and though this is the first time that I will be working on my birthday, I don’t think much of it because what I’m thinking right now is my long month preparation on Resha’s baptismal.  I already bought Nate’s clothes for that special occasion and I still need more time so we can buy Resha’s beautiful baptismal dress.  There are lots of beautiful dresses in Mall of Asia but its pricey too. I want to try it all on to her :)


I’ll celebrate my birthday in my sister’s house so we can be having another get together.  My mom wants to be with Resha a lot but she has less time for that now unlike before when she use to take care of Nathan till his first year.  After that, I’ll be having a special time with hubby next Monday because my eat-all you can voucher is located at the bay and I don’t want to risk my children’s health in various pollutants around the area.


So another year will be added to my age.  I need to think I’m still young :) Though my body sometimes disagrees ha-ha-ha!
