Wisdom Fridays: Dreams

Of buntings and homemade cakes {A Father’s Day post}

Our Father’s Day celebration this year went on without a hitch! I think it’s getting better and better each year!  Lyndon wasn’t surprised anymore as he knows that in our house, not a celebration goes by without these staples:
  • charming celebration banners
  • homemade cake
  • ceremonial gift-giving

This  year’s Father’s day gift is extra special as Lyndel was really hands-on with the decorations. Just look at the photos below. 🙂

Tales of the Unexpected

I was so ready to spend my morning in 10a Alabama to meet Apol Lejano-Massebieau and learn about Etsy and Beyond where she talks about How to Build a Creative Online Business. But then, as it turns out, the universe had other plans for me today. First, our yaya didn’t return in the morning as planned.  I prepared our breakfast of toast and scrambled eggs and iced coffee for me. After that, we decided that Daddy and Lyndel will tag along with me to 10a Alabama. It will be Lyndel’s first ever train ride. Just as when we were on our way out, Lyndel announced that he’ll make poopoo (yes, I know! Of all times right? haha) and so we waited for him and washed him up. I even tried to get away with the washing and offered wipes instead (hahaha) but my super maarte son won’t allow it. And so, by the time we finally went out, it was already five past 11!

I realized I wouldn’t make it to 10a Alabama anymore. Apol will be wrapping up the session by then.   When we were already at the train station, we just decided to stop at Araneta Cubao instead and head to Gateway. And here begins our unexpected adventure –  Lyndel’s awesome train adventure!!! 🙂 [Read more…]

MCNP Blog Carnival: Why Cloth Diapers?

Lyndel at 7 months

This post is written for the MCNP EB/Expo Blog Carnival with the theme “The Modern Cloth Nappy: The Practical Choice for Moms Today”  We aim to share and spread the knowledge and encourage moms to switch to cloth diapers.  Please scroll below to read the other carnival posts about switching to cloth, cloth diaper styles or preferred diaper for specific times. 

When I was 6 months pregnant with Lyndel, I made the decision to put him on cloth diapers. I actually found out about the cloth diapers by accident. I was browsing one of the online shopping site for baby products when I saw the Happy Heinys’ pocket diapers, it was love at first sight! (Super cute designs!) After that, I wore my research hat and read up more on cloth diapers.

So why did I choose cloth diapers over disposables? Let me list the ways.  [Read more…]

The Best of 2012 (in pictures)

I was browsing through my Facebook albums and I can’t help but sigh and think: “Lyndel grows so fast”. These photos below represent the best of 2012, although I still have to add more 🙂
