Biting and Breastfeeding

Image via

Biting has been my fear since I started breastfeeding and since I got past through it, it wouldn’t be a wonder that most Moms are fearing it. Especially, when those teething months are around the corner. I think this is probably the nth time I’ve gotten the question and is surely worth to have it’s own post.

An old friend of mine asked me how to get through biting and breastfeeding yesterday. I can understand how that can be a scary thought because honestly during my first weeks of breastfeeding Jack Jack while he was still learning how … Read More

The National Library

I’m not sure how much I have emphasized our family’s love for books on this blog but let me assure you that it is quite extreme. Our dream home would definitely include a room for a library. Not a study area. A room full of books. Wall to wall and floor to ceiling. Honestly, I miss reading books since I do not have the time anymore. I would love to be able to spend one whole night with my head buried in a book. I miss reading a whole novel in one seating without putting it down.

There are times that … Read More

Finger Puppets

I am always on the look-out for things or activities to keep Jack Jack busy. I’m pretty sure any parent does the same thing. It is always tempting to switch their attention to the tube when I ran out of ideas but I always try not to. He has too much screen time already if you are to include the time he spends in front of the computer.

Meet the finger puppets!

I just showed Jack Jack the fingers talking, singing, hiding, kissing, etc. After 5 minutes, I left him alone with 10 new friends.

Actually, I have been planning on buying … Read More

Internet Browsing with Opera Sessions

As a work at home Mama, I try to manage my time well. I’m not always successful but it’s always wonderful to find tools that could make working at home easier. It is not always easy as I tend to have routines that eat up time. An obsessive compulsive, I believe, that I couldn’t seem to shake off.

I have a step-by-step habit that needs to be done when I’m online. It differs when I am surfing, blogging, working on each client, etc. A group of sites need to be opened along with each task. It was a brilliant move when tabs where … Read More

Plastic Bag Organizer

Some cities are already implementing the No Plastic Bag rules which is great because plastic bag usage will surely be reduced but I doubt that it can ever be completely eliminated from our lives. Honestly, I don’t like them so I try as much as I can to minimize having them. If I could only fit everything that I bought in my bag just to avoid acquiring them, I would. But that is not always the case.

As much as I don’t like having them, I can’t just throw it away after a one-time usage. I try to reuse them as … Read More
