As a homeschooling mom, I have to create ways and present the lessons to my kids in a more interesting and fun way. Toddlers by nature have a short attention span and when they find things uninteresting, they would easily switch to another activity.

I must admit that in our homeschool journey, I still find it hard for me to look for resources and think of ways on how I can be more creative to present to them the lesson without the fuzz. Given some few materials I got from bookstores, I still think that our set-up is still way traditional and boring.


Toddlers by nature learn through play and have good memory retention whenever they enjoy what they are doing. But our homeschool set-up still doesn’t follow a schedule. They find some of our activities at home quite uninteresting.

Ogalala is a system developed by IGM based on play and parenting insights wherein play products or educational toys are grouped together to develop the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional skills of a child from birth to 12 years old. The Ogalala system has been developed to help identify important milestones and tools that will help support your child’s development while at the same time bond with your child.

Their system helped us identify the different stages of our kids and the expected developments and incorporated their products, which we can use to teach them. This way, our homeschooling journey will be more organized and will be more fun.

The products they cater are Crayola, Melissa and Doug, Haba, Animal Planet, Discovery Kids,Artec, Baby Einstein, Emco and Oops. Will upgrade the kids’ some of their toys in the coming days to come so they will enjoy learning through play.


Meanwhile, if you would like to know more about Ogalala, you may attend their workshop and I advise you to pre-register here. The workshop is for free and I ensure that you will learn a lot from them.

Summer is officially over. My kids are still in the play mode mojo because kids are kids. So the mom instinct in me would like to take precautionary measures no matter how I try to be lenient at some point.

There was a moment where I went paranoid about one of the dreadful disease that the kids might catch this rainy season, which is--dengue. I had my own experience of it in fourth grade and I don't want my kids to experience it.

I am glad that we have variety of preventive measures now a days which will perfectly suit our needs. When my kids were younger I usually buy them citronella stickers to ward off the mosquitoes. But it doesn't seem to be effective as they still have mosquito bites all over their arms. I also bought them anti-mosquito lotions but sometimes I would run out of it and it's just not handy.

Recently, I discovered an anti-mosquito repellant, which is very convenient. You can just put them on your kids' wrist and it's good to go. Less hassle since you won't battle with putting them on your kids' extremities and concern about the itching part when they get sticky.

I am happy to share with you my recent discovery, the Cudsly mosquito repellant. But first let me share with you some of the key features of the product:


  • It comes with different colors to chose from. 
  • It can be used as a bracelet for the kids with a trinket, which can be used as a lock.
  • It can be attached anywhere at your convenience.
  • It is reusable up to 72 hours, you definitely get your money’s worth.
  • It can easily be attached and removed as well.
  • There is an expiration date so you can keep track when it is best to use. 
So far, there is nothing I don't like from the product. I do recommend it to parents with toddlers like me who are hyperactive and likes to play outdoors to you keep your kids protected as well.

Numbers and I don’t go well. We have this hate relationship that I didn’t overcome and gets worse up until I graduated college. So when I had my Nutrition and Dietetics subject in second year college, I really had a hard time and I  only passed just because I have to, and didn’t take the lessons by heart.


Little did I know that I would really need it until this very moment. In our course through healthy living I am really struggling to on how much calories we are consuming. I know we have been eating healthy (most of the time) but it is not controlled by what is really needed by our body. 


In our busy times, we tend to opt for the accessible food, which is fast food delivery or instant meals. Now how do you maintain a healthy and balanced diet without the compromise? Recently, we were lucky to try goodbox. It is a healthy meal in a box delivered to your doorstep.

Goodbox is composed of a team of two chefs and a nutritionist. The nutritionist plans and calculates the necessary food intake while the chefs are in charge of how to make the food presentation appetizing.

If I were to plan our meal according to caloric intake of our family I would probably run out of menu to prepare and we would have the same meal over and over again. I am glad that we already have an option during our busy times and we can have our meal planned ahead of us.

Let me show you what I had from the GoodBox. This meal is 1200kcal in total, just what I needed to boost me the whole day.


Breakfast: (360kcal) Potato and Zucchini Fritata, Fruits and Orange Juice
AM Snack: (130kcal) Tomato and Basil Finger Sandwiches

I must tell you, the orange juice was so delicious as well as the finger sandwiches. 


Lunch: (340kcal) Chicken and Capsicum Pesto Pasta, Vegetable Sticks and Dip
PM Snack: (120kcal) Oat cookies

The vegetable sticks were so crunchy and the chicken was so delicious!




Dinner: (250kcal) Roasted Pumpkin Couscous, Fresh Salad




The food is delectable and you won't even notice that the calories were taken into consideration. The presentation was good despite being in an airtight container and very convenient in a to-go box. However, come dinnertime portions of the Romaine Lettuce turned brown, which prompted me to eat it ahead of time. Overall, it is a perfect meal and I highly recommend it to health conscious busy individuals.
