My little man is enjoying his afternoon nap, so I decided to finish this post. I wrote the preliminary draft last week, and it’s a shame not to post this as the story of the Kindness of the Farmer is truly worth sharing.
Mommy Pehpot, an award winning and top mommy blogger from the Philippines, guest blogs today. She gives us some practical advice on how to enjoy egg hunting this coming Easter Sunday.

Last 2015, the Philippines recorded around one million people with autism. This is sad news as often, individuals with autism receive an unjust treatment.
If only children with autism could communicate clearly, perhaps they have something to tell us. Let me share with you what Makati Medical Center shares about how children with autism feel. Makati Medical Center is one of the country’s premier health institutions and a dedicated partner in healthcare at every life stage.
I received a notification from Wordress.com. My domain momiberlin.com renews on April. That means Momi Berlin is one year already by next month.
How time flies.
Momi Berlin blogging journey: the start
I started my blog more like an online diary mainly to keep track of my boys’ achievements and anecdotes in a rather modern way. Never did it occur to me that people will read it, and possibly, inspire them too.
I only have my love for writing as a tool. And I rely on my little knowledge in writing a composition to give particular emphasis to what I would like to drive at. I just write in a way that comes naturally.
Until I got invitations to events and product reviews. I learned of different blogging communities, each presenting various opportunities. The chance for an opinion to be heard is big. Being referred to as an influencer is overwhelming. I never thought I could affect the purchasing decision of others in some way significant or authoritative.
This led me to give time to learn and improve Momi Berlin.
Do things that move you to love and everything else will follow.
This has always been the advice my husband would give me every time I find it hard to decide. And after each successful decision, everything else seems bright and comfortable. Perhaps because I followed my passion or what I wanted myself to honesty do.
For quite some time now, I have been reading to or watching children stories with my 17-month-old son. It has become our morning routine that even I, myself, look forward to it. More than the colorful and engaging graphics, the lessons from each story are inspiring. Indeed, our daily storytelling session has become a learning experience for this mother. Or at least I am constantly reminded of my morals and be ethical at most times.
I would like to share these stories and their lessons to you as well. As I always believe these anecdotes offer so much potential to remind us of life experiences and lessons. It is just amazing these tales often happen in real life, and we just need to be mindful of the morals they impart.
The hare and the tortoise
My second son went home one day with a Tupperware of banana cupcakes. He handed the plastic container to me. “I already ate some, and these are for you,” he told me.
“Where did these came from,” was my question. He relayed to me his classmate’s mother baked them for him.
Then I smiled and thanked my son for sharing the banana cupcakes. But more than the food, I hope my son appreciated the lesson behind the banana cupcakes. It would surely make him the most compassionate man.
Let me tell you the story before that banana cupcakes narrative.
Husband resigned from work to fully concentrate on an engineering consultancy firm he set up. He is now serving his last week at the company he was with for 10 years. Then he confessed to his wife his apprehension. He told me he penned all his concerns and before he could even finish his writing, he felt relieved. He realized there is nothing to worry much as those disadvantages he thought are actually his advantages.
I asked permission to post his composition, and he smiled at me. “They are yours, too. Use it and be inspired as well.”
Thoughts of my husband
“Who broke the bottle of Oyster Sauce?” was the question of Firstborn to Big Bunso.
“Did you hear mama got mad?” was the answer of my 11-year old son.
“No, I haven’t. So who broke the bottle?” insisted Firstborn.
“Exactly. Did you hear mama got mad?” Big Bunso repeated.
The confusion on Who broke the bottle of Oyster Sauce?
This went on for about three times. Until Big Bunso revealed it was mama who accidentally broke the bottle of oyster sauce.
It wasn’t the hormonal imbalance. It was how I treated the boys for quite some time especially when I learned of the unexpected pregnancy. I was rude to them when I felt like it. I let them get their food and clean their plates. We seldom eat together. I preferred to sleep and be alone inside my room. And I saw the confusion in their eyes. That confusion turned to fear.
