We usually do grocery shopping every two weeks and I make sure that what we need for the rest of the days will be covered. I also hoard some goods (when I get the chance) for the rainy season. It’s really hard to manage my household especially that I don’t have a helper. But I know I can make ways in order for our set up to work and mind you J and I are already used to it.

Recently we tried on a new set-up in doing our grocery shopping. We get a separate cart and the little girl comes with me and the little boy comes with J. This way it would be easy to go around and avoid annoying circumstances. But my dilemma is, when my little boy lost his sight of me he would start calling me on top of his voice and feels like his mom is lost in the jungle of goodies. I know it’s very shameful. As much as I want him to keep mum but he just couldn’t.

Another thing is with the little girl, that due to her curiosity, she would inspect all the things I put inside and shake things and no matter how I arrange it accordingly, I would end up with chaotic goodies. Worse is that we get to pay for the distorted milk boxes.


Do you have the same experience? How were you able to go about it?

Posted this on my instagram account. Yes, she looks kawawa there. 

During the past weeks my tots have been very naughty. The most irking moment that until now I have to find ways how to deal with is the fighting stage. I know it’s too early but it feels like they are already teeners when they argue. My little boy would continuously annoy her sister and make her cry. But I guess the little girl found some ways on how to handle “the situation.” Feign. She would make it look like that she’s badly hurt and cry like there’s no tomorrow. That’s how she handles “the situation.”




It has come, the time where I will answer all repetitive questions and listen to his jabbers 24/7, yes even in my deep sleep. But I am happy at least he can now complete a sentence and able to use the appropriate words despite the grammatical slips.  

My almost three-year-old boy can now utter a thousand words everyday. Okay, it’s overrated I’m not good in math that I can’t count everything he’s telling me including all the words he’s saying to his sister. I wonder how they’re able to understand each other?

He is now literally a talking machine. Not that I am complaining but sometimes it comes to a point where I need him to keep mum but he just can’t. We do usual grocery shopping every two weeks and right now we shop with separate carts, the little girl goes with me while D goes with J. My dilemma? Every time we go different lanes my little boy shouts like crazy as if I am lost in wonderland. Imagine the long list that I need to complete and every section I need to go to and he shouts “mama” every time. Oh boy, face palm.

But the unstoppable talking made him create and use new words into sentences. Just the other day, I asked him to keep his toys in one corner and when he was finished he said, “all done.” I don’t know where he got it but at least he knows his choice of words.

A little ant situation right after we got back from the grocery.

D : Mama, yook (look) one, two ant carry cookie crumbs. Ant going away. Talk ants mama! Ants too hungry? Yook! Ants too strong carry cookie crumbs.

Okay. I couldn’t say anything anymore except “yes baby” because he already said everything. I am too overwhelmed to add an additional statement.

Whenever he wakes up from deep sleep he would tell me, “mama, Dodo dream.” I would ask him what happened to his dream but he can’t say still. Now I have to wait for that time when he is finally able to tell me his side of story.





Let's make a little bit of commercial from my pending posts. I wanna say thank you to Camille of Lollies and Lipstick for giving me this award. I have never thought that this thing that’s keeping me sane writing about my daily dose of life and bits and pieces of information would help some struggling mommies out there. Well, I hope to continue this for as long as I can and hopefully/finally be able to swallow a little courage to break the monotony of my style. Don’t worry though it won’t be a disaster, hopefully!

Here are the rules:

1. Display the Award Certificate on your blog.


2. Announce with a post. Make sure to post and link back to me as a "thank you" for the nomination.

3. Present up to 15 awards to deserving bloggers. 
  • Chaynee is a co-model turned mommy/businesswoman behind Mamanee's Nest and very reason why I am in this blogging world. She was the one who encouraged me to make a blog of my own. She is also the person behind the unique cakes from Mamanee's Made with Love. You can visit her site if you fancy a cartoon character cake. 
  • Krisna is the mommy blogger behind Life As A CEO. I met her thru blogging in one of mommy groups and we hang out in one of the events and became instant friends. She is very humble and really beki in real life. I can attest to that! Her daughter and my first-born were born on the same date but mine’s a year older than her that’s why we share some crazy mom moments with our babies.
  • Kim is a firefighter’s wife and much like me she is dealing with two babies and a WAHM at the same time! I don’t know how she can manage everything but I salute her for that. Not that I don’t salute each mom in the blogging world but much like me is also yayaless. She is the mommy behind Mom on Duty.

  • Butchie is the mommy behind Filipina Explorer, a nurse also by profession but now a WAHM with a lovely daughter. I love reading her blogs because it showcases travel stories and different musings and you can feel the sincerity as you read along her posts. You can drop by her site now to feel the clean new look. 

4. Drop them a comment after you have linked them in the post.
5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself:
  • I suck at public speaking that’s why I didn’t join debate clubs back in high school but I can do case presentations. Ironic I know.
  • I tend to become a perfectionist sometimes.
  • I hate needles!
  • I like watching horror films but I usually hide under my pillow or blanket. Don’t judge!
  • I prefer to have more shoes and bags than clothes.
  • I like hot baths. Here’s to wishing for a water heater at home.
  • I don’t sleep on a messy bed.
Have Fun!
