    Fresh Space: Benefits Of Toy and Book Rotation

    We have been struggling since I worked full time and Laia has accumulated so many toys from the past occasion, like birthdays, Saint Nicholas, Christmas and so on. I decided to sort them for donations, to giveaway to her cousins in the Philippines and also really, some to throw. It is not easy when she has so many toys but she is not even playing all of them. Some books she do not really pay attention. Learning from day to day basis as a parent lead us to so many improvements. We are not perfect, we can never be. The…

I noticed children with eye issues, early glasses at the age of 2 OR 3, this actually good because it only tells they are being checked.

Then we also noticed Laia blinking her eyes, beginning September 2018. Asking the paediatrician what to do as he saw…

    3 Benefits of Single Tasking

    I always have been a good multi-tasking until I became a Mom. Things are not like before that I can do things perfectly without sacrificing quality of another task. For example, working in an office, answering a phone call, sending an email, video calling with a client and giving food to your child. Just reading about it made me exhausted. As part of my self-love, I would like to do things one at a time. I know, this will not work for those who are use to it, amazing multi-tasking skills you may have that I don’t have anymore now,…

    I know for most parents we would really want a perfect haircut for our little one! I am always in to cutting Laia’s bangs or trimming it but I am not a pro when it comes to hair. We decided to let Laia’s hair grew a bit longer, observe how it will look and be ready for a nice trim. For a haircut, I would like it to be simple. The apple look with a little side bangs we did. I was nervous that she will not cooperate during the haircut, surprisingly she turned out a good girl. As part…
