Note to Self: Start the Week Right

It’s been quite  a while since I last shared my thoughts here, hasn’t it? That was on purpose. I wanted to be more focused on being with the kids, with as little distraction (as if that could really happen) as possible. So since last year, the only social media app I retained on my phone was Instagram, and I decided to use the… Read more →

A Christmas Countdown Activity: Counting Your Blessings

Because of our season of having a new baby, we tried to minimize our activities this usually-busy month of December. I have had to choose which activities and parties to say yes to, and for the first time since we got married, so far I have scheduled only two parties that I have to host here at home.

Supporting Your Child’s Sporty Lifestyle

In between taking care of our newborn, our toddler, and homeschooling our girls, I’ve been attempting to “feed” myself with our pastor Steve Murrell’s latest book entitled MY FIRST, SECOND, AND THIRD ATTEMPT AT PARENTING (after more important modes of feeding, of course….like reading my Bible and….uhm…having cake *cue a guilty grin here*).

10 Years of No Compromise with Cycles and Cradle

When I was asked to be a part of Cycles’ 10th year anniversary campaign, I did not hesitate to say yes because since Alyanna was born, Cycles has been a part of our household.

An Important Reminder for Moms on a Mission

This morning is one of those mornings when I can close the door, lock it, turn on my worship playlist, sing, read my Bible, hear from my Father, get recharged— without rushing. It’s the weekend. No lesson plans to carry out, no papers to check, no calling the kids to get ready and start moving. Well, at least for this… Read more →

The ABC’s and DEF’s of Money Management

I love math, but for some reason, my brain chooses to go somewhere else each time I have to sit and listen or analyze financial data and information. When it comes to money management, I like to keep it simple. That’s what… Read more →

Boost Your Family’s Immune System

Since a lot of my friends’ kids have been getting sick, I decided to write a short post on what supplements we take to try to boost up our immune system. For the grown-ups: Malunggay capsules I think all of us know by now that our very own Malunggay is known all over the world as a superfood. You may… Read more →

How to Make an Oreo Bento Meal

Since we had our #betterme session on “How to Make Your Own Oreo Bento” last week, the kids couldn’t stop talking about their “great ideas” on the next bento they intend to make. If the kids started to talk to me about making bentos prior to the session we had with the very creative and talented Bento Mommas, I would… Read more →

Reality Check: Are You There?

Here’s a sad piece, but a good reminder for all the dads– and all parents, in general. Cats in the Cradle My child arrived just the other day He came to the world in the usual way But there were planes to catch and bills to pay He learned to walk while I was away And he was talkin’ ‘fore… Read more →
