Taking Gifting to the Next Level

Can you believe it? We're only 56 days away 'til Christmas! I still can't! Seems like it was just New Year's yesterday! Exaggerating but that's how I truly feel!

But to us, this coming Christmas also means Maco will turn one yr old! No, her birthday is not on the 25th, but on the 13th of December! She will be one yr old before Christmas, and we could celebrate it all together! Not like we didn't celebrate it all together last year, but you know, I meant celebrate as "celebrate" wherein you take part to the party. Got it? No? Okay. Anyway, I can still clearly remember how little she was during Christmas of last yr! We weren't able to 'celebrate' it with the whole fam though, because my husband and I were inside the house all the time looking after our little sleeping munchkin while the family were celebrating outside. Heehee! It's not like we didn't enjoy it, we did! Because we received our blessing even before Christmas! :)

Being a Mom

I actually didn't know how to start this one, I just wanted to share my thoughts on being a mom myself.
Well, I must say it's a bit of every feeling you could feel when I found out I was about to be a mom in just a couple of months! Honestly, I didn't know how to be one. But, don't think that I didn't want to be one. I do. I wanted to be a mother. Though when I was younger, friends would hear from me say that I didn't want to be one. I said that because I was afraid. I was afraid I wouldn't be good enough to be a mother for my child/ren.
You see I was a stupid youngster who goes out every weekend back then. Well not really every weekend, but you know what I mean. I drink, I smoke, just a typical teenager. I didn't think much about what I say. And maybe one of the reasons I said that was also because I didn't grow up with a mother. I was raised by my Papa. Papa isn't my biological father, he adopted me when I was still in my biological mother…

Saying 'No' to our Children

I'm guilty with this. I say 'no' to Maco almost all the time as she's really makulit, she wanted to feel and taste almost everything, but of course, I can't really stop that because she's curious with her surroundings. But how do I let her stop doing something / tasting everything she lays her hands to even when I had already told her not to?

I have read here that saying 'no' to babies all the time aren't good. They need to explore in order to learn things. Which I totally agree. 'Learning is experience' as they say. So, for my little girl who is 10 months now, it is better to distract her instead of saying 'no'. And I'm a proud mother here because since yesterday morning, I have done that. Of course I still say 'no' here and there but it's lesser than usual. Hahaha! I must say, I say 'no' to my little munchkin a LOT. I guess saying 'no' is fine but not a lot as what I do. I think saying 'no' …

Baby Company Rockwell Re-Opening

Whenever we visit SM Aura, I would always tell Joshua to visit Baby Company even if I don't have to buy anything. I love looking around in that boutique! Heehee! Maybe some of the sales attendants know me already as "the woman who always go inside but doesn't buy anything". HAHAHA

Baby Company Rockwell. 3rd Floor near Toys R Us

Luckily, last friday, I was invited to the re-opening of their Rockwell branch! Yey!

Ribbon Cutting

It was only Maco and myself that time, good thing we were dropped off to the venue so it was not much of a hassle for me. Maco was sleeping when we arrived. I met some of the mommy bloggers, and just after a few minutes my little munchkin's awake already! Uh-oh... I was not prepared for this! Hahaha

I also like Bright Starts toys! They're not as expensive as other well known brands but they're as good!!

Ehem ninongs and ninangs ehem!!!

Macoki loves them both!!!

I was introduced to Jazz, and she was…

Maco's first Cinema experience

Okay, let me just start by explaining why I wasn't able to blog these past weeks. My laptop got busted because my little darling Maco kicked it from our bed to the floor, and now the cord or whatever that is that you insert to the laptop is broken, so it doesn't charge and I can't use it. I don't even know if it still works. Oh well. :(  Now I'm using my bro-in-law's gift to my husband, his old laptop, that is pretty much like new. So yey! Thank you! Just in time! Heehee

"I own this cinema. Hello!"

"So Maco, how's your first cinema experience?" 

"Well Ma, it was great! The TV was so huge! But it was too dark inside, I can't even see your face, but I like that it's cold there so I took a nap. Hihi"

Yup, that's basically what my little munchkin did inside the cinema, she slept. BUT she watched a few of the first part of the movie! So yey! She behaved well, too! She did not cry and poop while we were watching! Thank you …
