🍓DIY Strawberry Milk đŸ“

Being a full time working Mom in the U.S. requires more than just overseeing the kids, their care and their activities. You have to be a hands on Mom because everything falls on you.

Water Beads

Toddlers are always enthusiastic about learning. Take advantage of their curiosity. Introduce them early to math and science concepts. This activity aids in the development of their fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination.  When toddlers start school they will be taught to read and write. Exposing your child to activities that strengthen their hands will help them get ready to hold a pencil before even going to school.  Activities like playing with small objects which make them use their pincher fingers are great at strengthening those tiny hands.  You can use varied materials based on availability. (Disclaimer: This activity shouldContinue reading “Water Beads”

Winter 2021: “SNOWY DAY SLEDDING”

Living in the Midwest has been quite an experience for me. I lived all of my younger years in the Philippines where the temperatures range between mid 70s to upper 90s.

Building Our Lives Like Lego Blocks

What is your big dream? What is your goal in life? This girl’s goal today is to build a sturdy Lego tower.  Life in the U.S. is not as easy as people from other countries envision. I was browsing some posts on Instagram during my break time at work. As expected, 80-90% of all the posts I saw were definitely perfect looking termed by many as “instagrammable.” Everything flaunted beautiful portraits, astounding places, impeccable travel and vacations, winning moments, and so much more. In short, life seemed to look perfect. Continue reading “Building Our Lives Like Lego Blocks”
