Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day. What About Sugar-Free Coffee?

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!"
