Tonight, my daughter told me she wants a new mommy! We weren’t fighting at all. She said it casually while we were asking each other how our day went before bedtime. It felt like I got stabbed in the heart. She said it was because I get stressed out a lot.   She’s right. I get stressed out over little things. When she and her brother don’t want to share toys, when they don’t listen even after telling them not to do something countless times, or when her brother ended up hurting her (and sometimes when she hurt her brother).…

It’s almost Thanksgiving and you’ve probably seen a lot of posts about being thankful for all the blessings they’ve received, their family and friends. While I am also absolutely grateful for all these things and more, this year, I want to focus on the bad things that happened to me. It’s not every day you get to hear someone say “Be thankful for the bad things in your life”. It’s hard to be thankful for them when they hurt you, when they make you live your life in fear, when they make you angry, or when they leave you devastated.

We found out that my son has a severe peanut allergy on his first birthday. We were given an EpiPen prescription because there’s a risk that he’ll have anaphylactic shock if he ingests peanut. We immediately banned peanut inside our house as soon as we found out. It took us a while to get used to it because no one else in the family has an allergy (and I hope it stays that way); but we certainly tried our best to make sure he doesn’t come in contact with peanut, but despite our best efforts, he did. Our First Emergency…

How is it that we’re already in November? This year is really flying by! October has always been an eventful month for us since I became a mom, because of all the fun fall activities that we always try to do with the kids. And this year is pretty much the same, considering we’ve yet to go to a fall festival and enjoy the fall foliage. So my Instagram posts for the past month is a good combination of the outfits I wore and the activities that we did. I know I said in my previous post that I’ll be…

I have to say that I’ve been VERY fortunate to not have to deal with a public temper tantrum for the entire 3 years since becoming a mom, until recently. To be honest, I’ve been dreading it because I don’t know how to react or how I would handle it. My daughter is really sweet and cheerful; and although she would sometimes cry in public, she would ALWAYS listen to whatever I told her. Things would never escalate to a temper tantrum. I guess she learned early on that when Mommy says no, there’s nothing she could do to change…

Sandy Point State Park will always be a memorable place for our family. Not because of all the fun we had when we visited it for the first time; but because every mom’s worst nightmares happened to me while we were there. I lost my daughter!

I must admit (I always have) I am not the best mom any child could ever have. But something happened last night that made me realize how terrible I am as a mother to my kids.

Hi! How are you all doing? I’m doing pretty fabulous! Other than the fact that my blog just recently turned 1 and we have an ongoing $250 Nordstrom gift card giveaway (don’t forget to enter if you haven’t yet), I had updated my blog’s logo to convey what my site is really all about. I immediately fell in love with it the moment I saw it! What do you think? This update wouldn’t have been possible if not for my dear friend, Haydee Gusler. She also did social media banners to match the new logo! How awesome is she? Her graphic designs…

When I started thinking about how much I wanted to start blogging over a year ago, I didn’t know what I was going to write about. It wasn’t until one afternoon a couple of months later, completely out of the blue, when it suddenly hit me. I would like to share my love of fashion, the struggles I’ve overcome and how I came out of them as a better person, and the lessons I’ve learned and have been learning as a mom (and as a person). And on that same day, an absolute spontaneity, my blog was born. It started…
