“Aray!” I shouted. I looked down and my loud voice just stunned my 10-year-old boy. He did not know what to do as he just hit my leg with the toaster oven tray. He was toasting some bread.
Out of anger, I told him not to come near me. “You know how little space we have. I am cooking! You should have waited for your turn.”
We ate breakfast in silence.
I am both happy and proud that Yael and I were able to survive our first six months of exclusive breastfeeding. Though he is my fourth child, it is a first for me to breastfeed directly.
We had some struggles with his latch for the first few weeks or a month, but we were able to pull through. We both enjoyed our mommy and baby bonding during those breastfeeding sessions. The last time I had our baby checked by his pediatrician, though, I was informed that he barely gained weight. He needs more food and even if breastmilk remains the most important source of nutrition in the first six months or perhaps a year of a baby’s life, our little man now reaches the development stage wherein milk alone is insufficient to sustain his rapid growth. Complementary food should be added to his daily diet in order to meet his nutritional needs.
We ate in a place called Vanilla Cupcake Bakery. Its charming facade enticed this mom to go inside and check on the food. The interiors all the more pushed me to choose a spot among the many empty chairs and ask for the menu. We spent about an hour and a half eating, exchanging a few jokes, and picture taking. The place is just too pretty not to be captured on my camera phone.
School is about to start and again, we moms may be feeling the pressure now of waking up extra early to help our kids prepare for school. Making sure that our children are well fed and ready for their classes are just two of the many hats we juggle everyday.
With the many responsibilities, we all the more need to be healthy for our family. I would like to share with you then some practical tips to get us motivated and whip back into shape—right in the comfort of our home especially when we are on a period.
After sharing our thrilling afternoon at the Mott’s Summer Family Fun Day weeks ago, a number of my dear friends and readers were curious about the applelicious spaghetti, corn munchies, and caramelized biscuits we had.
And so now, we would like to share with you U.S. registered Dietitian-Nutritionist Cheshire Que’s deliciously healthy recipes featuring Mott’s 100% Original Apple Juice. These are not only yummy and nutritious but are so easy to prepare that even your cute darlings could lend some hands.
I gave birth to our Yael last August 2015. A month before that, our kind and amiable OB Gynecologist gave us a few documents to review. It was about cord blood banking.
About two months ago, my little man and I attended the Ogalala Workshop, a child developmental class which aims to teach parents how to facilitate the learning of their child through play.
The short yet informative class was led by Teacher Maia. She taught the parents how to make time and do simple and fun activities with their children everyday for one month. She further relayed that after finishing the 30-day chart, substantial results may be clearly seen.
I just had my domain name a month ago. And what provoked me to finally get one?
I attended the Good Housekeeping Mommy Bloggers Workshop almost a month ago. That afternoon, veteran and aspiring mommy bloggers, as well as the magazine’s online community, gathered to exchange ideas and concepts at the Eastwood Hotel in Libis, Quezon City.
They share the same birth month. The older one just celebrated its golden year while the other has just entered his teen years. Both though have something in common aside from their birth month – they are loyal and loving.
We celebrated my firstborn’s birthday in a very simple manner. We just dined in and had him blow his birthday cake. That day, we went home not very tired but happy.
