    Quote of the Day 029: What you deserve

    How do you keep yourself motivated to do things you actually like doing? Do you strive for more or do you settle for less? Life is full of uncertainties. Yes, you face obstacles and challenges every single day. Whether big or small, usually something comes up. Just like motherhood.  There are unexpected events in our day to day life.  Still, we aim for quality time with our little ones. We aim for learning.  That’s why we continue to do what’s good for our child; something valuable not just for ourselves but for our baby.  We deserve each other and we don’t settle just as it is. Now if you have goals,…

    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: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…

    Quote of the Day 019: Involve me

    When you want to learn something new, how do you want to be taught? Do you learn by listening alone or through working together? As a first time mom, everything is new to me. This applies to my little one as well. What he sees, what he hears, and what he feels are outcomes of my approach. This is a new world for him. Now that he’s achieving a lot of milestones, how can I develop it even more? Showing and telling him needs guidance.  He needs a prepared environment.  He needs more involvement as the first 2 years of his life are crucial in his learning.  As what the…

    Quote of the Day 009: The Dream

    It’s Fatty Friday or let’s just say Fabulous Friday.  Today’s quote talks about Dreams. The question is..do you have dreams or if you call it goals? Are they realistic? In what way? When you think about it, do you spend a little bit of your time writing them down so you could plan your next steps? Are they SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bounded)? With a busy life as a first-time mom, I can’t keep track of things and time is constantly running. It’s very precious. Thus, I normally take down notes, set timelines, take action and check them off as it happens. Even prior becoming a mom, I…

    Quote of the Day 008: The Habit

    It’s Throwback Thursday. Today’s quote speaks about habits. I remember my good old days…late in classes, work, meet ups, and appointments. I would rather be the last than be the one waiting. As I grew up, I realized that it’s actually stressful. I hate rushing and being disorganized.  It might feel good in the beginning but it’s not what it’s supposed to be. Respect of one’s time is important. Motherhood then changed me even more. I learned how to prepare 2-3 hours ahead because I now think not just about myself but with another person. Thus, breaking the chain of habitual tardiness is a change I’m happy about. Planning and…
