I'm Jealous!

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Since I started working here in the province, I haven't been home lately. Plus the fact that I'm 33 weeks pregnant, makes traveling back and forth difficult. At first I didn't see anything wrong with it. Hubby was there so I thought everything will be fine. Or so I thought.

I noticed my daughter becoming more and more afraid of me. Every time I get mad, she doesn't take the time to make lambing anymore. Before, when she knows that I'm mad, she just says, "mommy... are you Reese Reese (her name)". Now all she keeps saying is, "ayaw mommy... ayaw." She prefers to be with her yaya. Call me a possessive mother all you want but I hate hearing it. Sure her yaya keeps her company most of the time while I work and do my own stuff. And my mom used to say that that's how we were when we were little and she was working all the time. I don't know if she felt this way then, but if she did, I understand her now and I understand what's  going on inside my daughter's head. 

But the jealous feeling isn't going away soon. It's okay to have my own "ME" time which I have been craving for the longest time. But if my daughter doesn't wanna come near me when I get mad, I'd rather not have my own "ME" time at all. I may be becoming a lioness with this pregnancy progressing more and more.

It boils down to having a strategy. She usually gets upset in the evening. But when morning comes, she's like, "mommy, mommy, where's mommy yaya? sama mommy." And I do get upset in the evening when I'm tired from work. Are the two of us just tired from the day's activities? Maybe so. Now what do I do? I cannot expect her to make lambing. I'm older so I should make the effort right?!

Starting today, after work should be mommy and kids time. Work should be left at the clinic where it belongs and it should just be play and play and play at home. Let's see if this would work.

Product Review: Shoo Fly Don't Bother Me Anti-Mosquito Lotion

We've been using this product since my eldest was a few months old. I found the product while browsing through the net. Before that, I was using Off Lotion on myself and I find it too slimy on the skin and sometimes I feel a heat rushing through the skin. So when I had my eldest, I didn't want her to experience that.

Of course before trying it on my baby, I had to try it on myself first. The smell wasn't that irritating for me. Plus it was organic. It didn't have that slimy feel to it too.

I've introduced the product to the whole family and to my relatives as well. My dad, especially, loves it. I also have the 1 liter container at home just in case we needed a refill. We love the product and would definitely recommend it.

Grow Food Parade

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Last July 14, 2011 was such a special day. Reese was part of an event. She was Miss Crab. She had lines to memorize. Although Reese's words are a bit difficult to understand, nevertheless for us parents, it was a joy to look at her. I wouldn't miss it for anything.

Reese's line: Good Morning! I am a delicious seafood. I am Miss Crab!. Thank you.

Thank you Daddy G for helping with the shirt. So proud of my little Princess. :D

13th Sandugo Recognition and Awarding Ceremony of the Department of Health

Last July 15, 2011 was the 13th Regional Sandugo Recognition and Awarding Ceremony. It was a special day for blood donors who have constantly donated blood. Some have donated at least 3 galoons and more. I never knew that there was such an event until I worked at the Rural Health Unit.

I guess they were constantly donating blood every 3 months. It's really not that easy. There are tests that needed to be undertaken and the donor needs to be healthy. Speaking of healthy, one should not have any maintenance medications or tattoos on their bodies. This is just one of the many requirements.

I wanted to donate blood back when I was a med tech intern at PNRC but unfortunately, i did not pass the pre-test. I really don't know how it felt but some said they felt refreshed after donating blood. There are those who felt dizzy after giving blood. I heard one who went pale and fainted and said he'd rather not donate again. Basing from their experiences, it's a tough choice.

So I salute those who have donated even just 1 bag of blood. You have made a big impact in someone's life.

Fitflop: My New Obsession

Friday, July 15, 2011

I've been wanting to buy a new pair of Fitflops. I wore Fitflops to work everyday. It helps soothe my feet and it relaxes my belly, keeping it from contracting too much. I've been in love with it since my mom bought me my first pair, a brown Pietra Leather.

And now I want a new pair... the Floretta. It's so nice to look at and I know it would be nicer on my feet. hahaha

Time For a New Book

Thursday, July 14, 2011

I got this while I was at NCCC Mall. I've been wanting to buy this book for a long time. If I remember correctly, this would cost around P800 to more than a thousand pesos. So guess how ecstatic I was when I saw this for less than P150.
