Am I A Bad Mom?

Last weekend, my husband and I watched the movie Bad Moms. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this movie, it is about 3 overworked and under-appreciated moms who are pushed beyond their limits and ditched their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence. You can read more about it here. I liked the movie because the story is very close to my heart, not because I am overworked and under-appreciated. Simply because I am a mom, I understand all the challenges that comes with it, and most days I feel like I’m…

The Day I Found Out My Son Has A Peanut Allergy

I’ve been very particular with what my kids eat. While my daughter can eat anything (even unhealthy ones once in a while), my son can only eat the good food – no junk food, only healthy stuff. Whenever we eat something that’s not healthy, he usually just stands there watching us – I know that sounds cruel but I just didn’t want him to consume anything unhealthy until he’s 1. That doesn’t mean that he’ll be eating unhealthy all the time as soon as he turns 1; it just gives me the peace of mind to let him try anything. That said, my husband and I have…

To My Second Born Child

To My Second Born Child, I can’t believe it has been exactly 1 year ago (already). While Daddy and I were on our way to the airport to pick up Papa from an almost 24-hour flight from Manila, you decided you wanted to welcome him as well; that’s when the contractions started. I ignored them because I thought they weren’t the real thing. As we sat in the arrival area waiting for Papa, the contractions became regular and stronger. I tried to be calm (not to cause a scene or anything) during each and every contraction. As soon as Papa arrived,  I hugged him and tears fell – I wasn’t sure if…

I Love You

It was Wednesday afternoon, we just got home from work and school, my daughter put a couple of Minnie Mouse stickers on my arms. I got her sippy cup and asked her to drink. As she was drinking, she saw the wounds on my right arm. She held my arm and said “kiss”. I lifted my arm closer to her cute little lips and she kissed my wounds, just like what I always do when she gets hurt. I said “Thank you!”; she replied “Abu!” (I love you!). – It was Monday, I felt movement in the bed, I felt a tiny…

Have A Grateful Heart

grabbed from Freeimages.com I have been guest blogging at BayArt and have recently published an article there. BayArt is all about bringing inspiration and happiness; and creating a value and making a difference. Of course, my usual posts wouldn’t be appropriate there;  so I had to turn on a switch that hasn’t been turned on for a while. This is the first time I have written something like this for years and I actually enjoyed it. Without further ado, here it is. I hope you like it. –   I haven’t always been grateful. I used to be a shallow carefree person who was only interested in getting what I didn’t have; I…
