A Few Important Rules To Teach Your Son ❤️ — July 3, 2018

A Few Important Rules To Teach Your Son ❤️

  • Make your bed every day, even if it’s right before you get in it.
  • Travel light through life. Keep only what you need.
  • It’s okay to cry when you’re hurt. It’s also okay to smash (some) things; but, wash your face, clean your mess, and get up off the floor when you’re done. You don’t belong down there.
  • If you’re going to curse, be clever. If you’re going to curse in public, know your audience.
  • Seek out the people and places that resonate with your soul.
  • Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
  • 5-second rule. It’s just dirt. There are worse things in a fast food cheeseburger.
  • Happiness is not a permanent state. Wholeness is. Don’t confuse these.
  • If you’re staying more than one night, unpack your bag.
  • Can’t is a cop-out.
  • Hold your heroes to a high standard. Be your own hero.
  • If you can’t smile with your eyes, don’t smile. Insincerity is nothing to aspire to.
  • Never lie to yourself.
  • Your body, your rules.
  • If you have an opinion, you better know why.
  • Practice your passions.
  • Ask for what you want. The worst thing they can say is no.
  • Wish on stars and dandelions, then get to work to make them happen.
  • Fall in love often. Particularly with ideas, art, music, literature, food and far-off places.
  • Fall hard and forever in love with nothing but yourself.
  • Say Please, Thank You, and Pardon Me, whenever the situation warrants it.
  • Reserve “I’m sorry” for when you truly are.
  • Naps are for grown-ups, too.
  • Question everything, except your own intuition.
  • You have enough. You are enough.
  • You are amazing! Don’t let anyone ever make you feel you are not. If someone does….walk away. You deserve better.
  • No matter where you are, you can always come home.
  • Be happy and remember your roots, family is EVERYTHING.
  • Say what you mean and mean what you say.
  • No one will ever love you more than I do.
  • Be kind; treat others how you would like them to treat you.
  • If in doubt, remember whose Son you are and STRAIGHTEN your crown.



Apps for your little ones — November 3, 2016

Apps for your little ones

I know… I know… no ipad / tablets below 3 years old. But what can I do? I know it is not an excuse but working momma here 🙋🏻  and it’s just one of those things I could use inorder to get things done like going to the bathroom alone for instance.

Yes I’m guilty of exposing my toddler too early in using ipad / tablets since he turned 1 last year. So what’s my point? In my case, it’s  inevitable so might as well have my son play the educational apps right? 

Just here me out… PROPER app, supervision and aloted time in using the ipad / tablet IS key. But if you have all the time in the world or you just simply do not allow and want your kid exposed to gadgets use at such a young age, please share with me what you do so I could learn a thing or two. But for now, yes, I allow use of ipads / tablets and this article is about what apps I let my 2 year old toddler use.

Endless Reader , Endless Numbers, Endless Alphabet, Endless Wordplay and Endless Learning Academy all by Originator Inc. The apps were rated for ages 4+ and made for Ages 5 and under.

There’s a trial version of each app and a bundle package price of $ 59.99 for the school edition and single purchase per app ranges from $8.99 (Alphabet) to &14.99 (for more information please check the app description in the Apple Store 

I let my son use the Endless Reader and Numbers as I have assessed that he can fully understand these apps and it is much appropriate for his age. As for the Endless Wordplay, its for kids 5 and below who are learning to spell.

My son, before turning two, knew how to count from 1-10 and I think it is a collective joint effort between everyone around him plus exposure with these educational apps as well. 

So what do you let your kids use? 

EQ Pants — August 6, 2016

EQ Pants

Ever since Miguel started to walk and run around, it has been difficult to put diapers on him. He would either pull the straps off or the diaper would just come off. So I decided to let him wear diaper pants. My son has been using Huggies as his regular diaper, so I switched from the strap diaper of Huggies to their diaper pants line. Then I also tried the Korean brands, the ones that was sold online which was ok but the only problem was the source and the stock as well. So I switch back to Huggies dry pants again and have been using it for the longest time. The only problem I have encountered is, Huggies would tend to be always out of stock. So I would buy Mommy Poko as an alternative diaper pants which happens to be the case everytime we ran out of stock of Huggies. Long story short, Miguel had a serious case of diarrhea and I had to look for a much affordable version of the diaper pants. Lucky for us, we were able to find EQ pants. Which is much more affordable as compared to Huggies diaper pants and Mommy Poko pull ups, EQ Pants is way better in terms of quality and affordability.

Why choose EQ PANTS?


 Price: 197.00 PHP for 24 pieces XXL

360 defrees snug fit

Waistband is stretchable and made of soft cottony materials that allows for a confortable fit even when baby is on the move. Its breathable waistband allows air to flow through, giving baby a fresher feeling while helping prevent irritation and rashes.

Super absorbent core with LDL

Allows maximum dryness by drawing urine away from baby’s skin, keeping baby feeling dry. The LDL (Liquid Distribution Layer) distributes urine evenly to prevent leakage.

Tear – Away Side Seams

Side seams of waistband are easily torn for a quick removal when changing pants.

this is what I do after tearing the side seams in order to control the mess. The waistband is stretchable making it easier to clean up after changing diapers. The diaper can also be disposed as burnable garbage to keep the environment clean.

Stand to Wear

Easy to put on your active toddler. It’s just like wearing underwear!

Leg Cuffs

Leg cuffs stretches with baby’s every move for a snug fit. It also prevents leakage. 


1. Waistband is stretchable but for my son, l think it is a wee bit tight. Although I haven’t tried a larger size. 

2. My son’s sleeping position sometimes worries me if EQ Pants would still be able to absorb the pee from any angle. Although since using EQ Pants, I have yet to experience leakage on the bed or on his bottoms. 

3.  EQ pants in only available in Puregold (Sucat is where I got to buy it. Im not sure if every branch sells it) I have not seen this variety in SM Supermarket , Shopwise, or even in Mercury Drug.

All in all I will certainly continue to use EQ Pants on my sons precious little baby buttom.
