    Quote of the Day 025: Focus

    Our Quote of the day speaks about how we should focus ourselves to things that truly matter. Every single day, I am enjoying my time with my little one. We do activities together and witnessing all his milestones just makes me feel so blessed. Then I realized that time flies so fast and in the next 5 months, I’m going back to work. “How will I manage my time, am I able to handle it?” This quote reminds us that we should look at life in a brighter direction. If we think we are not able to make things happen because of our weaknesses, think about what we can do…

    The Absorbent Mind book by Maria Montessori: Chapter 3

    Have you checked the Absorbent Mind book yet? It’s our 3rd week of reading! I’m so glad you’re still here with us. If so, has Maria Montessori touched you in some ways?

    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…

    Quote of the Day 023: Reflection

    Sometimes, we tend to judge others on what they say or do. Only to realize, we haven’t looked at ourselves first. That’s why…I believe in the saying “Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others do unto you”. It’s a powerful way of saying that we must be mindful in our words and deeds as this is a reflection of ourselves as well. Being around with first time moms, we share different experiences from pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. Our situations are unique in our own ways. So if one is struggling in one aspect, it does not mean that her life is vulnerable. No one has the…

    Quote of the Day 023:The Plan

    Are you a planner but gets frustrated when things go sideways or are you spontaneous and flexible in any way? People have different personalities when it comes to handling a situation. Some may feel stressed the moment a thing goes wrong and others remain calm and relaxed no matter what the situation is. As a new mom, things have changed.I realized it’s good to be both spontaneous and a planner. When we go to Mom and Baby classes, I prepare the night ahead so I don’t miss an item out. I also plan the times to prepare during the day. That includes when to change, eat and feed the baby…

    The Absorbent Mind by Maria Montessori:Chapter 1

    Have you heard about the Montessori approach in raising a child? I haven’t until I became a parent myself. I’m a first time mom and I’ve been seeing a lot of information about Child Development. I am obviously overwhelmed especially that Social Media has taken over and I don’t even know which one to follow. I found a lot of resources on Instagram and joined Facebook groups relating specifically to Parenting, the Montessori way. It made me curious. What is it about? What do I get out of it? What is her philosophy and what does it say? Luckily, I was able to connect with a former nursing schoolmate. She…

    Quote of the Day 021: The Mind

    Do you sometimes feel stuck and unproductive during the day? What do you do in order to counteract this feeling? Being on Maternity Leave, I see and care for my little one 24/7.  How do I find time to blog? I actually didn’t think about entering into this journey. As I started writing, I realized, it’s my stress reliever.  There’s no better feeling than to be just by myself and gather my thoughts. As everyone is asleep, I’m able to find focus and balance. I just start to punch those keys, drink my coffee and yes, my brain starts to work. If we don’t open our hearts and minds to…
