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. Admittedly, it helped me open doors to many opportunities including learning di

Surviving #terrifictwos

My little girl felt asleep last night in our room with her plushie toy dinosaur. Eversince we bought it, it has became her object of security. When I woke up at 4 in the morning, I transferred her to their room and because my eyes were half closed I forgot to bring the green dino. Then few minutes later she woke up crying looking for her toy! It seemed vague because she was looking for her green dino instead of me!

Earlier on a Monday morning, off we went to the grocery with the little girl and the moment we stepped in and rode the pushcart, she started to whine. She kept dropping her green dino and was trying to catch my busy self, trying also to remember what do we need to get. But it didn’t stop there, she continued to cry and then she was already shouting. Argh. What stopped her was when we were about to pay the items in the cashier and passed by Sophia the first magazine. She got the magazine and started to rip the plastic and scanned the magazine. In an instant, she became very happy. As if the never ending whining ever happened.

But despite the brain wrecking moments, she really knows how to persuade Boboy. Especially when she knows Boboy is slowly losing patience, she would hug and kiss him incessantly. Who can say no to that? Not even my lost temper. This happens every.single.day.

The little girl also loves art as much as I do much like how she doodles on her legs everytime she got an opportunity. I heard of toddlers writing on walls but legs? I wasn’t prepared for that! Haha! My hair wasn’t also spared from her fun in doodling when she stood next to me and trying to color my newly treated hair using her crayons! Well, here’s to hope that the artist in her will be enhanced through the years to come.


This parenting with this little girl is taking me to who knows where. I hope I can keep my sanity for the next years to come. Oh boy. Those are just some of “the” moments with my #terrifictwos daughter. I know it’s not proper to compare them but I must say, my son is way tamer than her during “this” stage. She really pushes my patience to test and my temper is slowly drifting away.

To my dear mommies with kids on their #terrifctwos, hang in there. This is just a phase. Let’s all dance to it while it last.

How do you handle your little ones’ brain wrecking moments? I’d love to hear them. Share some in the comment section.
