    How we spent our 1st Easter Weekend with the baby

    “You’ll learn to lower your expectations about what you can accomplish in a day. Some days, it will be all you can do to keep baby safe, warm, and fed. And that will be enough.”   How was your Easter Long Weekend? Did you celebrate it with an Easter tradition? How did you spend it?  I couldn’t wait to share how our little man celebrated his first Easter with us.  No bunnies and no eggs.  So what did we do? There are different ways to celebrate Easter and it all depends on us on how we value our practices and cherish those moments with our loved ones. After all, Easter reminds…

    Transition to Motherhood: Where do I begin? It’s a fresh start!

    ” When a baby is born, so is a mother; each unsteady in their own way. Matrescence is profound and it’s also hard. And that’s what makes it human.”-Alexandra Sacks It was a sunny summer day when we were finally going home. Everything I packed for both myself and the baby were untouched except for my grooming essentials. We stayed in the hospital for a day but after going through the whole labor and delivery, the day felt so long.   As a first time mom, I got so excited and yes, I made it! “Congratulations! You’re good to go…” the nurse said.  Sure enough, I felt my experience wasn’t…

    Quote of the Day 024: The Test

    Have you ever failed a test? Do you know the feeling of being miserable in a way that you feel like you’re doing things wrong? Do you easily get discouraged and stop from there? Within the last 7 months with Little M, I had those moments.  As a newborn, there was a time when he wasn’t feeling well.  Then I asked myself..What did I do wrong that he’s feeling this way? Have I neglected my role as a mother? Am I not doing enough? In this beautiful journey, it’s a combination of happy moments and challenging ones. But one thing is for sure..it’s part of the experience of motherhood and…

    Mind, Body and Soul: It’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday

    This post is part of SoCS Stream of Consciousness Saturday. The word prompt for today is soul/sole. Use the word/words in any way you can. Let’s start! It took me awhile to write this post. As I stumbled with the word, I told myself it’s gonna be easy. Yet, as I’m reflecting now, I realized…there’s more to it. My mind is full of distractions. I need balance, I need focus. So today, I started a challenge with my little one. I was searching for something. There’s that missing piece. I’m starting this journey to self-love. My sole aim is to find balance and peace within myself. Lots of things are…

    It’s never too late to try something new: The Benefits of Mom & Baby Ballet

    “If you want something you never had-you have to do something you’ve never done”-Anonymous Ever since I was a child, being able to perform and connect with my body is something I look forward to. I love to express myself through dancing. It’s the bridge between my mind, body and soul. It provides me an emotional release and an outlet despite the ups and downs of life. At around 8 weeks postpartum, I introduced Little M to a routine which we both liked at home. It’s my baby wearing journey through dance.  He likes the beat of the music, the rhythm, the swaying and rocking, and of course, the cuddles…

    If there’s a Critic, there’s Criticism: 10 Ways to approach the Big C

    This post is part of SoCS. “Stream of Consciousness Saturday”. Our Friday prompt of Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “critic (al).” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “critic (al).” No editing is required. Let’s start!“Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.”– Aristotle Criticism is everywhere.  A critic controls it. You get unsolicited advice or a strong opinion. It can be daunting, hurtful, persuasive, and/or emotionally disturbing. How do you manage this? I work in a healthcare management team. I get this almost every day. I make decisions when mediating staff conflict. Either one…
