The boys are all set for next week’s third-trimester examinations. To help them relax some more, husband suggested we go nature tripping. We believe that nature gives a sense of peacefulness. It has the power to refresh our battered soul and mind and give us a fresh perspective about life and things.
This mother once stalked the adorable Suri Cruise, the charming daughter of Hollywood stars Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. I find the young lady beautiful, and very evident is her classy tastes in fashion.
I checked a few posts about her recently, and now at 12 years old, she is the exact portrait of a free-spirited individual. I once read that the most defining characteristic of a free spirit is that the person has learned to tango with fear. That is how I imagine Suri Cruise. She remains humble yet classy and carefree. Looking at her photos, I may say she has made a name for herself as a style maven and is on the lead to becoming a fashion influencer. She got the taste, the looks, and the character.
The fun side of having a big family is that you somehow master how to make ends meet. We have shared one of our petsa de Peligro dishes last October. Now, we would like to share with you again another dish I often serve to my boys.
Perhaps every homemaker could relate how stressful it can be to think of `what to serve for the next breakfast, lunch or dinner. This holds true especially when you have picky eaters and they just hate it when you repeat viands. The same stress when you just don’t feel working in the kitchen and yet you need to produce food for your school kids.
Well, Lumpiang Shanghai has saved me a lot in many emergency situations.
We have known this brand for 15 years already. We learned about it through experience. And though we try other brands from time to time, we always go back to our tried and tested Pampers Baby Dry.
As a couple blessed with five boys, we’ve learned the hard way. There were times both our Firstborn and Second Son often had diaper rash. It was because we bought those econo pack diapers sold in the dry market. With a Firstborn nearly two years old and an infant who both need vaccine among other things, we cannot afford the brand we used to buy before. It was a wrong decision and we learned the hard way. Never did we achieve the savings we’ve been expecting.
Fast forward to 13 years, we are again faced with a similar situation. We have our Little Man at two-years-old and our SumoSam at three-months-old. We try to make ends meet and still give our little ones what they need, diapers included. And so this momi loves to share with you a checklist on how to save on diapers while still giving your child the best.
Petsa de Peligro literally translates to “day of danger.” It is a period just like today that our wallet or ATM is running low. The payday seems so far away though it is only two to three days far. Still, you get to ask yourself, how will I get through? I guess most Pinoys can relate to it or at one point experienced Petsa de Peligro.
The Petsa de Peligro question
“What’s for lunch, mama?“
This was the question raised by my husband this morning. I looked at our cupboard and dug further inside the refrigerator. I brought out everything and let the “inventive” mom in me decide what to cook.
This mom gathered everything she could muster. Prepared everything and heated the pan. I am about to cook our Petsa de Peligro lunch.
