I adore anything personalized. If you've seen my son's first birthday party, you'll see that I had most of the decorations, even his outfit, personalized. Whenever we'd go home to Manila, I'd have something made that's personalized for my kids if not for our family, like our family hand print on a ceramic plate. I treasure every memory I've made (and yet to make) with my family, and having something personalized captures that perfect moment and ensures that...

My daughter first started showing interest in the potty when she was 18 months. One day, she said she wanted to go to the potty so we just sat her there and she peed on her own. That was pretty exciting for us but we didn't do anything after that because her school won't be able to do potty training until she's in the 2's room. Since my husband and I work full time during...

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was good - our office closed early last Friday so I took advantage of it by getting snack from McDonald's on my way home and we had afternoon snack together as a family; then we took the kids to a nearby playground. On Saturday, we went to visit and had dinner with my mother-in-law so the kids can spend time with her. We went to hear the...

From the time my kids were born, I always make it a point to include reading to them in our routine. When they were younger, I would read to them every night before they go to sleep. They've always loved reading; which is why I would always give them a book as a gift for any occasion. But now that they're a little bit older, they seem to have a shorter interest in books; and seem...

My mom is one of the women I know who isn't addicted to shoes; she is fascinated to flip flops (the ones with great quality) though. I can still remember back when I used to live in the Philippines, I would always take her out on a date for Mother's Day or her birthday and give her a new pair of flip flops. She would always get excited every time I get her a pair so I...

I am really loving all the fashion trends lately, cold shoulders, off the shoulders, denim overalls, and bell sleeves. I remember back when I was younger, I would always find myself wearing denim overalls if I'm not wearing baggy jeans (yup, I went through that phase too); and I've always loved seeing little ones wearing them because they look so adorable in overalls. So I guess it's not really surprising that I wanted to try...

I love music and I can definitely say that music has been a huge part of my life. I remember back when I was younger, I would turn to music either when I was happy or sad; especially when I was heartbroken. There's something about hearing someone sing some words accompanied by a melody that makes it so heartfelt and extremely relatable. I absolutely remember I used to cry while listening to a song when I...

Motherhood, Travel / 06.04.2017

Back in November, we drove to New York for a few days to show my parents around. I would consider it as one of the most stressful trips I've taken so far with my kids, mostly because I was trying make sure that my parents get to see as much tourist attractions as possible while also trying to accommodate my kids' schedule. I was always rushing to enjoy where we were because I knew we...

Kid's Fashion / 04.04.2017

This year, I told myself that I won't be getting new Easter clothes for my kids because they already have TONS of clothes. I thought if I get them another cute outfit, they'll only get to wear them for a few times before they grow out of it. So I plan to just re-use whatever pastel-colored clothes they have. But last Saturday night, I found myself paying for an entire Easter outfit, including accessories, for both...
