My 26th Month Old: Asking and Learning Stage

The strange favorite of mine is how this little bunny follows me along and wants to be part of what I am doing. Being impatient at first, I tried to get things done quickly out of her sight. But I noticed her willingness to help and this eager desire to please me. She wants to be a good girl to mommy, I guess. Thus, the next time I did household chores like folding clothes; I let her keep her own garments inside the drawer, that’s her job! This role gave her a sense of incentive. One time I caught her nodding her head possibly taken aback by the idea that she’s a “big” girl now. The bonus point? Mommy got an instant adorable helper! I’m still in so much awe of her impressive ability to follow directions; “put it in the drawer”, “get your ball under the table” or “get your shoes and put it on”. Yes, I’m that sad statistics, the proud parent! J

At this stage, she also has this never-ending questions of “what’s that?” or simply “dat or sha” (as my sister perceives it) pointing to every object and people around. I encourage her curiosity by responding to everything; that’s a book, a ball, your tita, your tito, nose, lips, eyes and so much more. I thought this doesn’t work because I was the one doing most of the talking and she just keeps on asking the same thing time and again, but to my SURPRISE, she was picking a good number of words. We were scanning images on my phone when all of a sudden funny accents sprung on her lips “ Chicho for tito”, “A ball for ball”, “eatch for eat” and “Nose” in her loudest happiest tone and even convey them in action like “walk”, “kicks with an s” and “sit”. I know it’s not much but these little things made me cry happy tears, promise!

The only downside for this is how she imitates and munches almost everything that I snack too. After few trips to 7-eleven and supermarket, exploring the alleys endlessly, she recognized the advantage of these rare moments of independence. She spends most of her time on junk food section and goes straight to the counter once she’s satisfied with her selections. Her current favorites are m&m’s and pringles! It’s terrible that I let her works her way and that I was hesitant to say no or else I’ll face a dreadful public tantrum. My bad L

Last weekend, she emptied a can of pringles, ate half of a corn and had a plate of rice and pork adobo for dinner. And just before midnight, she had constipation. It’s the most horrible time seeing her crying in the corner fighting for pain. I did most of the home remedies but unfortunately, it doesn’t help. That awkward moment you were hugging each other while crying and trying to help her push harder. Only the following day, after a spoonful of medicine, Daddy worked his wonder and forced the thing out of the crying baby. I felt a sudden relief and swear to God I won’t let her eat what she wants ever!

Oh, the struggles and happiness of motherhood!

No regrets J

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
