Road to Financial Freedom

  “Spendthrift” is my mom’s mantra for how she handles money. As soon as she started giving me monetary money when I was in 6th grade, she would tell me not to spend everything, especially on the things that I do not need. Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want. But being a nurse in my country, the salary is not enough to feed our family let alone live a comfortable life. I have three children and pets at home. To sustain all our needs, I need to find ways how to earn in addition to what my husband is earning. I started to find ways how to earn passive income and a steady stream of income. Growing up, I know that once you graduate from college and earn a degree, you can earn a living. But there was a shift of mindset when I was exposed to the power of social media.

TLC : Trouble! Trouble!

The past few weeks were a very busy one, so with LJ's vocabulary. From the time he was able to converse well with us, he couldn't stop talking every.single.day. I imagine myself that I am inside a boxing tournament where every move I make there is someone narrating. He is just 31months old and is now very talkative how much more when he reached 4 years old and I have to answer all his why's? Whew! Still, I am so glad that there is a big improvement when it comes to his vocabulary as each month goes by. Apart from what others were saying before that he was a pathetic little boy because he cannot yet converse well at the age of one! 

Right now, there is a slight change of the "no" word. The "no" word is slowly making a shift to the "yes". Also he can now add "ing" to some the action words like taking, eating, running, sliding, and etc. 


During lunchtime, he was having slight tantrums when he doesn't like to finish his food. The usual thing I do was ignoring him to minimize the stress and fight. 
LJ : Oh no, mama help Dodo dow (down). Help pweese (please)?
Me : Why baby? 
LJ : ER (cr)! Help, help trouble trouble!

Oh.my. Seriously? He really said trouble? But why?



- o - o -

We were playing inside their room. He had all his cars lined up on top of the bed and suddenly some fell on the floor.

LJ : Oh no! Mama, help car! Trouble trouble!

Again? Trouble. Ok. Fine. Maybe he meant was he was in big trouble. 

But I just realized that maybe he kept on hearing the same music every. single. day. Maybe he has LSS? Maybe some of you knew the song "...and I knew you were trouble when you walked in... Oohhh! Ooohh! Trouble trouble trouble!"
