My Happy Girl Secret

Be comfortable with who you are and open about the things you nerd out over – no matter how silly they may seem!  My sometimes dorky bro and I love listening to happy songs and watching the best cartoons like Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.

How To Tame Tantrums

The crying.  The kicking. The screaming.  The stranger stares.  A child melting down in  public can make you feel helpless – and ashamed.  Is there any way to calm a child suddenly melting down in public?

Are You a Good Mother?

What’s a good mother? 

One who’s loving, loved, gives her children what they need?  Does it matter if she stays at home or goes to work, is married or not?  Is in her 20s or beyond 40?  If her kids are happy?  If she is happy?


Women wrestle with society’s – and their own ideals of motherhood.  What she discovered:  The answers to the question of what makes a good mom are loaded with almost as many opinions and judgment as there are mothers.  I found that there’s no absolute definition of the perfect mother.  But trying to set my own goals for what I want to be as a mom has helped put the ideal of perfection into perspective.

Have you struggled with these issues?

Do you think it’s tougher these days for mother to measure up?

What makes you feel most like a good mom?

What is the one thing you’d most like to change about yourself as a mother?

I would love to hear your thoughts!!!

It’s Money Monday Again! (and why I am smiling)

Like most of you, my bank account is still devastated from the hurricane of expenses brought about by the opening of school.  The school year has gotten really messed up, don’t you think?  Just after I almost totaled my bank account last June for Nicole and Adrian’s school stuff and tuition fee, here came August and I had to pay for V’s school chuvaness naman!  Back in my time, everybody started their school in June! This year, three big schools in the city (including V’s) decided to open school in August.

Find Your True Bargain!

While blaming the Chinese Ghost Month for my endless gastos and thinking about how to save money, spend wisely and spot bargains, I was inspired to go through the clutter in my room and closet and sell all my junk.  More than making a few extra bucks, it was the thought of making room for bigger and better things that excited me.  Five days, countless cramps, three migraines and one huge backache later, I had a humongous Toss pile and a relatively small Keep pile.

What I learned

Stay Cool with Sunsella Mighty Pops Silicone Molds

Do you have childhood memories of eating ice pops during the sweltering hot summer days?
I do.  After spending the whole day on the fields in my grandparents’ place, I just had to raid my grandma’s freezer and get some ice popsicles.  We have a funny name for them, too – we call them ice candy! (Give me the pink one please! )

We just make them ourselves, too.  We had these little plastic wrappers where we put what we made – usually a delicious concoction of milk, sugar, pieces of fruit in season. (I know!  Everything tastes soo good if you are a kid, especially if you made it yourself!)
