Teachable Moment With Kids: Needs vs Wants

My kids and I have a lot of bonding moments at home, especially now that we are in the second year of this pandemic. They have seen its effects, the limitations, and the people that have been due to the virus. This season is also a perfect time to teach the kids financial literacy since our business is affected during this pandemic. Since they were young, I started teaching them about money. As a parent, it is one of the primary life skills children must learn at home to manage their liquid assets properly. Even in their younger years, I let them use their piggy bank. Any coin that they get changes from the food they buy. They already keep it in their piggy banks.  But how soon must we teach our kids proper money management? As soon as my kid starts to count and recognize money and when they begin receiving monetary allowances, I should start teaching them the importance of money and how to manage it wisely.

Altered Thermoregulation related to Intense Summer Heat

What have I been up to lately? I feel like I'm missing my cyberworld already. Anyway, can you feel the intense summer heat? Few days ago, I received our electric bill and I was delighted to see it. Since it is our first month here I had to make sure if I got the correct bill. So I checked the meter number and lo and behold, it was our lowest consumption ever. Amazing! 


But today I had the most terrible day ever. I woke up weak and feeble and experiencing crampy abdomen. And since it has been a consecutive weeks of stress and unending domestic duties now I can feel the extreme stress all over me plus the scorching summer heat a very good combination to make me exhausted. Whew! I haven't even finished cleaning and unboxing some of our stuffs and it feels like there are unending things to do. I feel so worthless today despite the errands that needs to be done and the mundane domestic duties. Thank God for inventing air conditioners and for my loving husband who stood by me on my feeble times. But I just felt guilty that he has a lot of backlog works that needs to be accomplished. (So sorry love for taking too much of your time). 

Anyway, despite the feeling of weakness and all, I just feel so happy that my 30 month old little boy has made alot of improvement with his vocabulary and I am amazed every time he utters new words. Just this afternoon, he randomly called me mommy and his dad-- daddy. He calls me mama and his dad papa/boboy. He tries to mimic some words but sometimes I could hardly understand the way he pronounce it. He gets frustrated also when he means something but we could hardly understand him. Oh the joys of motherhood is an unending bliss and stress. 

How's your weekend everyone?
