Fun At The Beach

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

I think this is the second time the kids went to the beach to swim. Most of the time they just play in the sand. And they are having so much fun. Even yaya Apple swam without the proper attire.

Product Review: Love Loop

Monday, May 28, 2012

I have only 2 nursing tanks. That's it. I don't know how to wear nursing clothes and I don't wear nursing bras. I have great difficulty wearing them. I can't imagine how to go around the disposal bra pads. If you know how then by all means teach me:)

My problem always is that I'm showing my tummy every time I'm feeding M in public. And most of the time, yaya had to stand in front of me to cover us. That sucks right?!

Instead of buying myself more nursing tops, I decided to invest on the love loop. This product is made of light weight, stretchable fabric (my own words). I decided to get the grey one. At first I thought it was just a short fabric, turned out to be longer and twisting it is a must if you wanna wear them around the waist.

Please bear with my body. haha. What sucks is the twist. If you put them at the back, you end up having back pains when you're driving. Be sure that the twist is on the side.

Also make sure that the fabric is well distributed in your belly to avoid them from running towards the upper belly area.

I would give it 4 out of 5 stars. I love it. I'm planning to use the other colors.

BabyWearing Event Goes to Davao with Cloth Diapering 101

Sunday, May 27, 2012

I decided to bump off my scheduled post to give way for this. I can't wait to tell you what happened yesterday. I finally get to attend the babywearing event held at The Pod. I decided to join simply because I like wearing Marco with me. Aside from the fact he's getting heavier each day, it's the most convenient way to keep him close to me.

I brought his 2 yayas. (1 yaya is complaining of swelling of right deltoid muscle due to persistent carrying, hence the 2 yayas. yeah that's how heavy he is.) 1 yaya has been babywearing since my second child using the baby pouch. Now we're trying to master the ring sling. Soon we'll be using the saya carrier.

So we attended the 10:30 class and met some awesome people. I finally got to meet Jenny Ong of Chronicles of a Nursing Mom, Alex Hao of The Pod, and Lyn of The Oak and Acorn. Plus I saw Jenny Tan again of Next9.

We had a blast and can't wait for the next event.

First of, some might say I am a bad mother for giving my kids junk foods. But hey, they love it and they are having fun. Plus, they don't always eat stuff like this. Thus the reason for the cute smiles and the loving gestures.

Life and Money

Saturday, May 19, 2012

I've been trying to learn about the stock market and so far these books are a big help.

Get yourself some dose of financial education through them.

"If you learn life's lessons, you will do well. If not, life will just continue to push you around. People do two things. Some just let life push them around. Others get angry and push back. But they push back against their boss, or their job, or their husband or wife. They do not know it's life that's pushing. " from Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Held last April 26-27, 2010. We were able to cater more or less 200 patients for major, medium and minor operations. This was held at the Malita District Hospital.

Thanks to the doctors who came all the way from Davao Regional Hospital in Tagum. Thank you so much.
