"New Years Resolution for Parents"

Since the year will end and new one will come I would like to share this to all the parents who will be reading or is already this blog entry. I got this from my weekly doze of tips on kids and everything about parenting from babycenter.com.

So to all parents this should be our New Year's Resolution and I find it doable. And besides this resolution will sure develop our kids to be a better man in the future.

• Not yell so much

• Stop using threats to keep your
kindergartner or grade-schooler in line

• Be more loving — and find other ways to help your
5-year-old or 6- to 8-year-oldfeel good about himself

• Slow down and really
listen to your child

• Give each of your children the
one-on-one time he deserves

• Find more family time

• Plan
fun outings more often

• Read more with your child — whether he's a
beginning, intermediate, oradvanced reader

• Watch
less TV

• Make
healthier meals

• Encourage your child's relationship with grandparents

• Share your beliefs with your child and — if
religion or spirituality is important to your family — make them part of your family life, traditions, and rituals

Nurture yourself so that you can better nurture your child



So I will and will forcefully do all this things, so help me GOD!.

"What have I done in "09?"

One more day and the year of the calendar will change again. Another year had passed. What have we done? Just another question that popped into my head while looking all the clutter in our house. Yeah what have I done this 2009? Thinking of it, I don't even have a checklist of the things that I have done and have not.

So relying on my memory and analyzing all the outputs as I can recall, it seems that I haven't accomplished much. Maybe it's about time to jot down some things that I wanted to accomplish.

"Monday Rush : Still Sick"

Monday rush already and I'm still sick. Thank goodness I filed my leave already so I'm all on vacation mode until next year. Hehehe! Monday rush and I thought I'm free of rushing but my wife is on rush today. She's on leave today also because our little Maki has to be brought to the doctor he still hasn't recovered yet from his illness. So that's why my wife is on rush.

"Daddy Day Care : Caring for Dad"

Hi folks yesterday was supposed to be Daddy Day Care time but fortunately I wasn't able to write something. Reason for this is Daddy got sick. So Daddy Day Care became Care for Dad. Until now Daddy is still weak and at this moment I still got body aches. Whew! I hate it when I got sick.

Tips when sick! For you and your kids own good!

  • Make sure to drink a lot of water when you are sick. This will make your body hydrated .
  • Never made contact with your kids. Though they got shots for diseases or fortified with lots of vitamins still it's your duty to make your kids away from such sickness or diseases.
  • Always have an extra shirts besides you. Sweats are good indication.
  • If it still doesn't subside it's about time to go to the doctor.

These are just things that I always do when I am sick. You can follow this if you want or you can just see your doctor immediately if you feel sick. Still the best defense is to make your body healthy.

God has graciously provided all that we need He never fail on doing it. Also He always show us the way and lead us to all the answers of our problem. He's always there, though sometimes I fail on thanking him and doing what is ought to do by a Christian. God truly loves us and here are some of the blessings I'm thankful of.

Counting my blessings for this year:
*My employment contract for this year was renewed.

*Stones from my kidney was detected as early as possible and was treated using shockwave.

*My wife easily finds a job which was much closer to our house.

*We were able to give Maki a fun and joyful 2nd birthday.

*I was able to earn money through blogging which was really a great help when we badly needed some money.

*We were able to pay some of our debts.

*That me and my family were safe during the calamities.

*Most important is that our family are together and celebrating Christmas which was a present from God showing how much He love us.

"Thoughts for Today"

I was just thankful today that me and my officemates were able to travel back to Manila as early as possible. Since this is the last day of work before Christmas most people are already traveling back to their respective provinces to spend the holidays.

While traveling I was able to have a glimpse of the traffic north bound. Vehicles are cuing on toll plazas of the expressway. Can you imagine all those vehicles cuing more than one kilometer.

Anyway I just pray for those people returning to their provinces to keep their cool and may God bless their travel.

"Days Before Christmas"

Ahh! One more day and its Christmas Eve already. Time really flies fast this days. It seems that it was just yesterday that we were cooking for the Christmas Eve. Christmas is really a season where everyone is looking forward for. For this Maki will be celebrating his 3rd Christmas but this time it's different. First thing that Maki did was he stripped off all the decorations of the Christmas Tree. What left of it are the Star at the top and the Christmas Lights. Right now we haven't put any gifts under the tree because he might open it immediately if he saw those gifts. So we will just put it there on Christmas Eve. I'm sure this Christmas will be different for us!

"Monday Rush : Dull Office"

Though holidays are good for people there are some things that is not good about having holidays. Especially when everyone has gone for vacation except you. The only negative about this is when you get to work when everyone is already cheering and enjoying the season.

Right now, most of the staff in our office has already started their holiday season by filing their vacation leaves and others are just not in the mood to go to work anymore. Who in world would still got some energy to do their works when their minds are already set for the holiday. Right!

This morning though there's still some staff who are doing their works and some stuff still you cannot leave out the feeling that everyone are on holiday mood already. Aside from having two or four personnel in the office you can also see that most of the works are already minimal. So the Monday Rush is in no rush for this season. Anyway it's just a few more days to go and it'c Christmas already.

"Preschooler Developmental Delay"

An information to all parents so you'd better have a peek or glimpse of this article. As usual I have my weekly doze of tips and information from babycenter.com. This few weeks I wasn't able to post any of the tips and information I got from babycenter.com, first, reason is that I haven't been reading some of the articles from that site, second, I'm all used up and my times seems a bit shorter than before, third, I'm busy planning to gain more earning opportunities. Anyway that's all part of us growing and thinking for our children.

According to the article in babycenter.com preschoolers develop in different stages. Some may have develop early like pronouncing words clearly and some may have develop the love for music, whichever or whatever stage they develop as long as it is still in that range they are still don't have the developmental delay. Like in Maki's case, right now he hasn't fully pronounce one word clearly but his good in some cases like setting his things in an orderly manner. It's more likely an "OC". Anyway I'm just thankful that he hasn't any development delay.

These things can't be detected as early as possible but to make sure you should have some time with your kids especially in their development stage.

"Daddy Day Care : Simbang Gabi?"

Today is another Daddy Day Care on a Christmas season. This morning we were supposed to go to the Dawn Church Service but due to the cold weather, tired and to sleepy to get up we weren't able to go to church. I don't when will be able to go the dawn church service but I just hope that we could at least attend one dawn church service.

Here in the Philippines December 16 is the start of the "Simbang Gabi or Madaling Araw" (Eve Church Service or Dawn Church Service). This church eve or dawn service is the start of the Christmas Season.

Now back to our day. As usual Maki and I were left alone in the house. The Lolo and Lola hasn't come home from the Church Dawn Service, so all left for us to do is play, watch, and do our chores.

We were watching some programs from one of the TV networks in the Philippines and it is titled "Kulilits". I find Maki interested on how they present some stories. Maybe Maki need some more story tellings from us. The story is about the birth of Jesus. We haven't told much stories to him lately. Maybe today I'll buy some story book for Maki.

"How Tall Will Your Child Be?"

Just read an email from babycenter.com. Their topic is "How Tall Will Your Child Be?" Of course most of the Dads will want their kids to be a Six Footer. A good playing six footer inside the court perhaps. But still there are circumstances that will still affect the growth of our kids. Maybe some is because of deficiencies in their growth hormones or some is just natural for them to grow tall or not so tall. So by that we should be very assertive on all the foods that our kids eat. So if you want to know how tall will your child be just click this link. HOW TALL WILL YOUR CHILD BE?

"When It Rains It Pours....."

Have you tried or have you experienced an overwhelming flow of unwanted events? Well, I have and it really pours down on me very very hard. It was the time that you thought everything was well "A" okay but it turned out that it's not what you think it is. Right now what I do is meaningless. The good thing that has been done is tainted with a black dot. Which only implies that no matter how right and how perfect my actions are still the dark spot still noticeable. Regardless of the number of right still the tainted spot still and will remain.

If only....

"Sunday Message : Opportunities in Disquise"

Actually I wasn't able to attend church today for some reason that need to be dealt before anything else. While browsing the net and blog hopping I noticed this simple graphics from "me and my cup of joe". At first it was just a simply written words which I thought something that he just posted for whatever reason. Out of curiosity, I read the lines and it says "THINK OF PROBLEMS AS OPPORTUNITIES IN DISGUISE.". Come to think of it it is really like that.

God doesn't give us problems or trials that we cannot handle. The only reason why it became so heavy is because we don't let God help us carry that burden. We often thought that we always need to work it out with a plan. A plan that we course out without the intervention of God.

If you will look at it very closely, problems are always there no matter what we do it's always present. And that is what God has been using to lead us right back to his arms. God's plan is far beyond our concept. So always think that "Problems are not an enemy but think of it as God's disguise to get the goal we are hoping for."

"Daddy Day Care : Trinoma Mall"

Today is our Daddy day care but this time it's together with Mommy. Mommy was able to join us today.

Our adventure today is at Trinoma Mall in North EDSA. One of the malls along the Metro Railway Transit. This mall is linked with the MRT. This is much more convenient with the commuters because they can already went directly to the mall after from the long day work and a few minutes of rush hour.

The mission to here is to buy gift for the Lolos and Lolas and of course a gift for Maki also. One more thing Mommy's clothes, which really took most of the time. Anyway and at least we were able to get some of Mommy's clothes. In the end we only got Mommy's clothes and nothing more (I think) because the gift of Lolo and Lola were not bought including Maki's gift.

That was tiring and yet fun stroll in the mall. Maki love sliding with those shiny and slippery tiles in the mall. As if he was surfing the wave. Well that cuts off our day and went home.

"Greeting Cards from Mommy Gen"

I just got the package from Mommy Gen of mommyko.com, five set of greeting card. I won this from a contest online. At first I didn't know that I won some prizes from Her and History's Contest. I was hesitant when Mommy Gen ask for my mailing address so I ask her why and she explained that I won some prizes from Her and History's Contest (that was all in a messages in Entrecard). So when I've read that I won without any hesitation I immediately sent her my home mailing address. That was last month.

Last week or last last week, which ever it is, my mother received a card notice from the central post office informing me that I have a package. There was no details on what and from whom was the package all it is written there are the counter where to pick it up, date until they return it to the sender and the my name on it. I only got a hint that it was Mommy Gen's package because I don't have or no one that I know that is going to send stuffs or package for me.

So yesterday I went to the central post office and picked up the package. As I expected it was from Mommy Gen. I didn't opened it until I get home. Once I get home I took a picture and here it is.
The greeting cards are wonderful!

"Friday Holiday"

Today is Friday and we don't have any work at Pampanga. It's Pampanga Day! Another holiday! Another long weekend. Though the week really wasn't very good. There are lots of problem came and I don't know if I can still hold on and manage to cope up. More of which are from where I spent most of my time every week. But anyway it's Friday, start of the weekend. At least no worries for now, "Hakuna Matata" the best line of Timon and Pumba of the Lion King.
So happy weekend and may the Lord God bless us all!

"Accident While Taking Care of Maki"

Just this morning my wife texted me and informed me that Maki and his Lolo met an accident leaving his Lolo with bruises on his forehead, elbow and knee. Fortunately Maki didn't got any bruises because hi Lolo hurriedly save him from getting the accident.

We haven't got any Nanny for Maki lately some of them were forced to return to their province due to personal matter and others, well we kind of don't like the way they take care of Maki. So in order for Maki to be taken care off, we left him with the Lolos and Lolas but eventually Maki was to hyper and to active for them to catch up.

So this is our problem lately and until now we haven't found anyone to be Maki's Nanny. Though there are lots of agencies you can look for or even recommended by our friends but still it's too hard to find a Nanny that will really take care of the child.

For the meantime, still the Lolos and Lolas will still be the one to take care of Maki until we find a Nanny.

"Survey Time : To Pacify or Not to Pacify"

It seems that our last survey regarding diapers wasn't very interesting for the moms. Only two bloggers responded with the survey, one answered comfort and the other one is Quality and Price. Oh well at least someone responded.

Now let's have another survey I hope this will be interesting to parent bloggers. The survey will be to pacify of not to pacify. Will you let your babies use pacifier or not?

Will you use pacifier for your babies or not?
Yes to pacifier
No to pacifier

"Fireworks Display"

Whenever you a see a fireworks display you would say WOW! And that's what my officemate's racket this year. His selling fireworks! I did watch their teasers and I also get the same expression when I see those fireworks. WOW!

We love to watch fireworks displays. Their company will be having a fireworks display on December 18 (I think) right after the Lantern Parade in UP Diliman. So if you want to know of see some of their products you can watch the fireworks display in UP Diliman. I will be posting the products next time so if you want to buy some just contact me. I will also post their teaser here.

"Making Things Possible"

This past few days there are things that you wished could have happened but eventually it didn't. There's a small problem that really annoys me very much. This problem is so irritating. I should have had it earlier but uncertain problems occur which affects the realization of that certain thing. I just hope that it will be for sure this week to have it solve.

Since I started taking advantage of the Entrecard perks I haven't given credits to all bloggers who have dropped and visited this blog. So to recognize them I will be posting top ten droppers every now and then to let them know that I am grateful for their visit. Again to all the top ten droppers thank you.

"TGIF"

Thank God it's Friday. I think this expression is the common term of all yuppies and even the older ones who works five days a week. Especially the working Dads. This is the day where they can set their mood for the weekend activity with their kids. Of course me! Hehehe! So let the day end and set the mood for tomorrow!

"DMS : New Word To Learn"

I got this new word that I’ve stumbled upon inside the World Wide Web. Actually it’s not a word but an acronym. It’s an acronym commonly used in med school in other words it’s a medical term. At first I thought it was a typographical error but when I read along the lines I figured it was part of the sentence that it is spelled like that. The word is dms which stands for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Sounds different right! If you’re a med student you can easily figured it out but for an ordinary people like me… well I don’t usually stumble on extraordinary words. So it’s more like an alien to me. Anyway it's nice to learn new words and stuff most especially if it regards medicines and med school.



.

"New Face of Yashiro"

I haven't started the changes here on this blog. I'm having a hard time making it. Some of the plan were already finished but the implementation may take long. So everyone better stay tuned and watch out for the changes.
