My mom has this great job that sometime requires us all to relocate. My dad is kind of a stay at home dad that takes care of the house and the kids just like my mom would do if she switched places with dad. Anyway, this last move got us to Houston, Texas. So we had to change schools and everything. I was not OK with the move because I hated to leave all my friends. But really I had no choice in the matter. Before the move the realtor had told my parents about Shop electricity rates in Houston as a place we could find the best website to shop for our electricity. Then she directed us to where the local schools were located and told us where to find a shopping mall that was convenient to our new house. For a realtor, she was especially nice about sticking around after the sale of our house. Right after we moved, I saw this really cute boy that lives just three doors down. I have a feeling that this place might just grow on me.
We’re here for six months now and I am still a stay at home mom. I am happy I am still not busy, I can still take care of my kids and my husband. I can always be there whenever they need me. I can’t imagine how will our situation be if I am already working. If only I could stay at home, continue blogging for some penny, I will probably stay at home. Why? I wanted to attend every activities my kids would be having, I want to be with them when they need me. On the other hand, I also miss working. I miss those office supplies on my table. I miss dressing up in the morning, putting some make up (as if I do) when needed, buying new bags and shoes, and more. It’s actually a battle between being just a plain WOMAN and a MOM thing. I wanna have a different career aside from being a MOM. I wanna excel in something, I wanna have 13th month during christmas! I want a payslip monthly and so many more!!! Which is better? A Stay at home mom or a Working Mom?
Por qué es lo que gente rica suelen tener un hijo a todos y personas pobres que viven en los barrios bajos tienen acerca de una docena de niños? Resulta irónico que los que pueden permitirse el lujo de criar a sus hijos en un ambiente digno y pasar no hacen suficientes hijos que apreciarán las bendiciones materiales mientras que aquellos que no pueden permitirse incluso alimentar a sus hijos parecen hacer bebé toma un hobby! La razón habitual es que los ricos están ocupados no haciendo más dinero y los pobre tienen ningún otro medio para disfrutar especialmente porque no hay ninguna TV.
Los ciudadanos de clase media, al parecer, son los que se ocupan de la planificación de la familia porque no son ni ricos ni pobres. Son ellos los que consciente de metodos anticonceptivos. En algunos países se presta como seminarios para recién casadas para que puedan hacer una elección inteligente, siendo capaz de soportar toda la familia basada en el ingreso de la familia produce. Si bien es una bendición que nace un niño, es ser una maldición si el niño no puede incluso ser alimentado. ¿Aunque es alegre tener una docena de una familia, qué bueno es si todos son simplemente inútiles debido a la enfermedad y el hambre?
(Why is it that rich people usually have one or no child at all and poor people who live in the slums have about a dozen children? It is ironic that those who can afford to bring up their children in a stressless and decent environment do not make enough children who will appreciate those material blessings while those who cannot afford to even feed their children seem to make baby-making a hobby! The usual reason behind is, the rich are busy making more money and the poor have no other means to enjoy especially since there is no TV.
The middle class citizens, it seems, are the ones who are concerned with family planning because they are neither rich nor poor. They are the ones aware of METODOS ANTICONCEPTIVOS. In certain countries it is being given as seminars to newly weds so that they can make a choice intelligently, being able to support the whole family based on the income the family produces. While it is a blessing that a child is born, it is being a curse if the child cannot even be fed. While it is joyful to have a dozen in a family, what good is it if all are just useless because of sickness and starvation?)
Hello fellas! Advance Happy Mother’s day to all of us!
So preggy tales huh…..aw! I always love to remember how I felt the day I knew I was pregnant.
I was working in a private school as an administrative assistant – my second job since I graduated when I got pregnant. I actually don’t know I was pregnant until my officemate gave me a hint about it because she noticed the symptoms in me. My breast are aching, my acidity is killing me, I am frequently going back and forth to the bathroom and sometimes I have this fever and I have no idea why I am feeling so sick in the morning. Eversince that day, I felt so excited but worried. Excited because, I really wanted to have a baby but worried because my boyfriend (husband no
w) was still studying that time. I told him immediately that I am possibly pregnant. Not yet sure but we were both afraid to know the truth. Honestly, deep inside me I am praying that I hope I am truly pregnant no matter how it takes. The day after that, I was in the mall and I saw s booth of “FREE blood type test, sugar test and pregnancy test”. I didn’t hesitate to go and ask the nurse that I want a pregnancy test. She gave me a bottle to put my urine on. Came back nervously with my urine and after some seconds..the nurse said “Congratulations you are pregnant!” and I feel like I am gonna jump in much happiness and excitement. That was the happiest day of my life! Second was when I gave birth to them!
No matter how hard it is to bear a child in your womb for 9 months, the happiness and excitement still in there and I will not regret anything from those moments. I am so happy to be a mom!
This is me on our wedding day and I am 8 mos pregnant with ISHI
this is me during my second pregnancy
I am sure you know that feeling. I can’t describe it. It’s just different. So precious moment and from then on I feel so complete and fulfilled. That’s the tale of my first pregnancy. Another story when I get pregnant with my second child Ethan. I will sure be posting about it soon!
Hello mommies! Here’s my entry for RAINBOW theme this week – BANANA CUPCAKE with rainbow color sprinkles on it. I designed one of the 7 cupcakes, my kids’ have made.
Yesterday was a fun-filled day for my kids, finally we started ‘kids’ and mom baking session’ and they enjoyed it very much! Here’s our photos showing how my kids could be able to bake “Banana cupcakes”.
I prepared everything my kids need to make “Banana Cupcakes”
To start … Ethan poured the beaten egg unto the banana cupacake mix
then Ishi poured the milk…..
kids start mixing everything up….
and done with the mixing…Good Job my little angels!
they made 7 pcs out of the mixture, time to hit the oven!
15 minutes later…..
my angels were very excited to decor their own cakes
Ethan can’t wait to have his own design…. look how serious he was!
She’s so serious too!
Now everybody’s serious….
Ishi’s cupcakes were ready!
and so with my prince ETHAN!
They are so PROUD of what they have made!
I just had a bite of what they made just to taste it and plan to eat later thinking I would be eating whatever they have left, it’s delicious, no wonder I didn’t get one They ate everything and left one for their daddy and nothing for me? Hmmm…now I am jealous I didn’t even tasted my own design
Happy MM everyone!
Kids finished their school earlier than the scheduled school break in the Philippines, now that were here in Arkansas we will be stocked in the house for more than few months before going back to school again. We missed the most fun season in the Philippines, the summer break! We all love summer even though the sun is as hot as hell! Why not if we can do many things during summer, right? My kids love swimming, they are actually waiting for summer. Right now, our summer plans were cancelled since it’s not summer here, it’s spring time! Almost like summer but there were times that it’s still cold even it’s sunny day. There is a swimming pool within our village and my kids kept on requesting to go swim already(without knowing that they can possibly freeze there).
Plans, as I’ve said no plans yet for summer
For now, our plan is to stay at home, play with the kids, watch, maybe teach them some art activities or cooking stuff. I wanna bake with my kids but there are lots of thing we need to invest first, so maybe that’s the last thing on my list.
Happy Mommy Moments!
Congratulations to all of us Moms! Congratulations for another year has passed and another milestones for us!
My kids finished their studies before we left, Ethan finished as Junior Casa or Nursery and Ishi finished Junior Advance Casa or Kinder I. We purposedly scheduled our flight in March to catch up with the 4th quarter exam. My kids took their exam 1 week in advance since our flight then was 11th of March and their real exam was March 16-19.
I was happy they finished their studies even though they are more excited counting down days than going to school coz they know we will be leaving so soon. Nursery doesn’t have graduation in La Cabecera de Montessori (where my kids studied), only Kinder II has. But I already experience them graduate during their ‘saling pusa’ stage at the age of 2 and half and I already know the feeling though they are so little by that time.
I am really glad they made it without my supervision for the last 2 months of their schooling, I maybe busy that time but they are still going to school with their Lola Taba.

Now that we’re here, I guess they will be back to Zero. Ethan will be in Pre K (I hope) and Ishi will be in Kindergarten. It’s spring time break but we were getting ready for another school year coming.
I am excited for them but I am worried about bullies esp. for Ethan. He’s very vulnerable, he easily cries and I am afraid he’ll be like that in school. I hope not.
Happy Mommy Moments to all of us here! Again Congratulations!
