When Z was a baby, we used disposable diapers all the way. It’s convenient but I remember feeling guilty contributing that much waste to the environment. So now that I will be a second time Mom I’m determined to be more “adventurous” when it comes to diapers. Surely there are other more environment friendly options than those disposables. That’s why these past few days I’ve been researching more about cloth diapers. It’s harder than looking for an rv insurance quote because a lot of moms prefer using disposables. I don’t blame them but I feel that I have to at least try first this time around. I’m already nervous as early as now and I hope I have the willpower to not give up that easily as soon as the first sign of trouble appears. In times like this I can’t help but wish my grandma is still here with me. She has experience using cloth diapers on me when I was baby and we both survived that. I surely could learn a lot from her expertise.
I so love my preschooler! For sure I miss him when he was still a cute and cuddly baby. I remember I could hug him then and he wouldn’t budge. Now, when hubby and I hug him he twists and twists until he’s out of our grasp. We would always complain to him that we can’t hug him properly anymore and we would remind him how he loves our hugs when he was still a baby. Of course, now he’s witty enough to have a retort every time we say that but that’s one of the reasons why I love my preschooler!
So why do I love my preschooler? Here are more reasons why:
1. My preschooler talks! Sure, a cooing baby is a delight but it sure gets lonely inside the house with no one to talk to. Now that my baby is already a preschooler it is so much noisier inside the house. We never run out of topics because he asks a LOT of questions. It can be tiring to answer all of them but at least I can have a decent conversation inside the house.
2. No more dirty diapers to deal with! Isn’t that enough reason to rejoice? My preschooler tells me when he needs to go to the bathroom. I can ask him to hold it when we’re inside the train or in a place where there’s no comfort room and that won’t be a problem to him. Now if only he can already wash himself then he’ll be perfect! hehe
3. My preschooler can do errands for me. When he was just a baby it seems my two hands were never enough. I had to hold him where ever I go and since I only have two hands that doesn’t leave me enough to do anything else. Moreso when he became a toddler. I had to run all over the place to make sure he doesn’t hurt himself or get in trouble. Now, that he’s a preschooler it seems like I have grown a pair of extra hands overnight. And not just any pair of hands, mind you, but a pair of really HELPFUL hands. From getting me a glass of water to rubbing his Daddy’s itchy back he surely can be counted on. I can’t even remember the last time I had to pick up his toys after him. Did I say I love my preschooler? hihi
4. I have a mini me! I love watching movies and my husband shared the same hobby with me – back then when we were still dating. Now that he’s already working and has no time to watch all the movies I want to watch I can rely on my preschooler to watch everything with me. We watch everything together from horror movies to psychological thrillers and he wouldn’t blink even at the most scary parts. I would gladly return the favor by watching his favorite shows like Spongebob Squarepants and Avatar: The Last Airbender and we would have a good laugh over those.
My preschooler is also a mini version of his Daddy. When his Dad comes home and picks up his guitar, my preschooler would get his own guitar and “practice” with him. They would watch music videos together and learn the songs together. Sometimes my preschooler gets too rowdy and Daddy would reprimand him which would send my preschooler coming back to mommy. But what I like the best about my preschooler is I’ll just tell him something funny and he’ll be back to his old self.
I could go on and on about how I love my preschooler but honestly, sometimes when I see his baby pictures I can’t help but tell him how I miss having him as a baby. So what does my preschooler do to make Mommy happy? He asks me to tickle him like I did when he was still a baby and he would laugh his cute but fake laugh. And then his thoughtful gesture would remind me all over again why I’m so love having preschooler.Read More
If you’re an owner of a business, or an education institution it’s more likely than not that you’ll find yourself shopping for computers. Computers have become an integral part of the businesses and are needed for its operation to go smoothly. Since not all computers are the same you have to know first what type of computer would satisfy your business needs. But more often than not, you’ll need a high performance and reliable computers.
Since you will need a lot of computers for your business you will have to shop from the store that will give you the best value for your money. Hubby and I have long been thinking of opening an internet cafe because it fits our abilities and interest. If we ever pursue with this business I would surely shop at CyberPower PC. They help their customers by giving them the best computers at wholesale prices. We’ll surely use the cyberpowerpc coupons that they give their customers for more savings. Aside from that they also give a 1% cash back reward when you order.
Opening a business requires time, effort, a lot of money but if you do your research first you’ll be able to budget your money wisely.Read More
It was Bam’s debut yesterday. Bam is my cousin (my stepfather’s nephew) who we send to school and in turn helps me in the household chores. She’s like a family to us and our home is cleaner and more organized now that she’s around. Z loves her to bits and treats her like a real Ate. I dread the day she graduates and leaves us because she has really been a big help.
So when we learned that she’s going to celebrate her 18th birthday this week we encouraged her to invite her friends. She was happy with the idea and invited her classmates over yesterday. Since I’m quite helpless when it comes to cooking our neighbor and some of her close friends helped her prepare the food.
The food is simple but what’s important is she celebrated this important milestone in her life.
Happy 18th Birthday, Bam. Keep up the good work and I hope you’ll be able to finish your studies and have a successful life ahead. Work hard and never forget to dream and you’ll surely get what you wish for. Life is hard but don’t ever give up.Read More
We’re excited because we’re going to a special screening of Salt tonight. I heard Angelina Jolie is better here than in Tomb Raiders. We didn’t want Z to go because it’s PG 13 but for some reason he refused to be left at my MIL’s house. So now we have no choice but to bring him with us. I just hope they let him in.
Anyway, I know that no matter how expensive the cinema is you still won’t find any electric fireplaces. A cold cinema can ruin my movie experience so I’ll surely bring my jacket. Of course, hubby will also be with his love tonight. It’s not me and I don’t get jealous because I love it too. Yes, our movie experience is not complete until we’re with our love – a big tub of cheese popcorn!Read More
