Getting Ready for the Coming School Year 2018-2019

My little girl is attended summer classes for toddlers in preparation for the coming school year. And even though it's just summer classes, I already bought a few school supplies (i.e. pencils, sharpener, plastic cover, erasers, colors). Yes, I am that parent! Haha! I am just so excited! School supplies, covering of notebooks and books, sharpening new pencils and all that.

Even when I was younger, buying school supplies made me so damn happy! I would rather spend my time in book stores than in toy stores. I would not use my new notebook unless I really need to, even if I have a lot of it! I love collecting notebooks and pencils! Also, do you remember those magnetic pencil cases? That was a dream for me! I had one which we bought very cheap at a market, and it didn't last long. :(

What is Dyslexia?

Honestly, I knew the term dyslexia when I was in high school or college already. We are not very much educated about it then, so thankfully we have these kinds of talks today. And as a mom, I am very much thankful to people who share there knowledge to us.

No parent would ever want to see his child struggle in school much more in the area of reading—the very core foundation to learning every subject there is in school. This is far worse for the child. The fear of being labelled and teased as stupid, dumb and slow is something he has to face and live with every single day. It could even be aggravated by his teacher’s perception of his condition: lazy, not trying hard enough, unfocused, and absent-minded. The fear even becomes bigger when the school strongly implies that the child is simply a poor student.

Welcome to Pampers Toni and Baby Seve! Let's Do the Less Lawlaw, Go Galaw Dance!

I've been invited to a Pampers event 2 years ago (click here to see my post), and since then, my little girl has been a Pampers user. I've been a believer and yes, my little one didn't have any rashes from the Pampers! It was the time we welcomed Andi Manzano-Reyes and baby Olivia to the Pampers family, and now, with other mommies, Paula Peralejo, Isabel Oli-Prats and Feliz Lucas, we welcome Mommy Toni Gonzaga-Soriano and baby Seve with a new dance craze for us to dance to!

A 'Sunny Playtime' with Iya and Primo Arellano at Glorietta

Maco and I went to experience the new scents from Bambini. If you didn't know Bambini, or you think that you've heard it before -yes, Bambini was around in the early 2000s as I was in high school back then and I remember most of the girls uses this cologne as it is sweet-smelling.

How NESTOKID supports your kid to be healthy and #GrowHappy!

I was so happy I got invited to Nestokid's event last March 9th at Bellevue Hotel, Alabang. I didn't know that we should have a lot of energy for the event though! Haha! But it was really fun and informative.

For the first part of the event, we were greeted by Nestle Infant Nutrition Country Business Manager Ms. Arlene Tan-Bantoto and a DIY string bag. Ms. Arlene gave us welcoming remarks and infos about Nestokid. We then were given patches and we'd arrange how we want it, and that's where we put the goodies. ;)

Being a Work-at-Home Mama (Plus sites where to get LEGIT home based jobs!)

For the last 5 years I've had 4 jobs already. First job was in a BPO industry and I've worked as an agent for 2 years. Second job was in an Interior Design firm which was related to my course, it was a few months since I had to go back to school. Well, what are the odds, I got pregnant that time. It was a happy time for me and my husband, and it was also the struggling part, because my savings went to school, and my husband's pay from his then-job was never enough. But I think this story would be best for another post since this would be too long. Hehe

Anyway, after my job at the firm, and after I gave birth and all. I tried working from home. I told myself this would be perfect -I could work while I could look after our daughter. But apparently my first online job was as an English tutor. It was quite an experience, but it was not the job for me because well, I had to take calls, and no one could look after my little one while I'm doing that. I then asked my college batchmate who I've seen posting about her online job - and that lead to my second online job. I applied to that one as a customer support to a Interior Design mobile app, she didn't because she already had a job at the time. After some time, both of us were working there at the same time as Design Assistants. Glad I have someone I know in the same company! Though that one didn't last long. We only have a month contract with it, but it was okay. It was worth it.

It took me a looong time to find another online job.

Now, I'm working as a Social Media Manager. It is exciting and I have the best boss ever! I could say he's the best boss anyone could ask for. I am just so lucky!  And it's so much worth the wait! :)

Anyway let's talk about being a work-at-home Mama. It's not really that easy, but if we will talk about the commute part, well of course it was easier since all I had to do is be on time at work even if I haven't brushed my teeth, or combed my hair, or even if I'm in my worst outfit. Lol! At least now, I could work while I'm with my little girl - and I can say it is the best part! And of course, I'm able to help my husband with our fincances!

But with looking for a homebased job, unfortunately, yes there are a number of scams on the internet, especially on facebook! It was also a struggle to find a job that you sure is legit. Thankfully, I haven't encountered scams so I'm not really sure how it goes or how they would talk you through it. But I've read from forums that one of the modus would be when they ask you for some money for you to have an account with them or something like that, basta you have to pay them in order for you to get the job -and that is weird! Well, I'm not entirely sure but I haven't encountered a legit online job that would ask me for money. So just be extra careful when finding legit online jobs!

Now Mamas, let me share with you some sites that I personally have had a job from or I know have LEGIT clients.
