CUDDLE ♥

How often do you and your husband cuddle? Us? almost every second when were both at home! haha yeep! call it O.A but that's how we really are. 

We cuddle even when we are just sitting or lying in bed talking about something.
We cuddle while were watching TV.
We stop at what we do and just HUG for a minute or so.
We love to cuddle,cuddle.cuddle and kiss, kiss ,kiss! LOL

I so love it when my husband holds me tight and cuddles with me.
I feel so loved and secured!
I love him so much.♥

Dear SM Center Las Piñas Hypermarket and Magnolia Chocolait

Please check you items especially your character beverages (MAGNOLIA CHOCOLAIT). Last Saturday me and my daughter bought a chocolate drink in tetra pack with disney princess (Bella) print on it.

came Sunday, she opened it and took a sip. I heard her say " panget lasa mommy" so I immediately grabbed it from her and taste it. It tasted sour and the consistency was thick . I even asked my brother to have a taste so he did and same as my verdict It tasted "panis" (spoiled) however the expiration is on 2015 pa naman so I got really confused why it tasted panis! I immediately asked my brother to keep it away from my daughter.

It didn't cross my mind to keep the tetra pack, not until my daughter started vomiting an hour or so after she intake that chocolate drink.

and then she vomited even more frequently.. we rushed her to the nearest clinic. She could't stop throwing even while we were talking to the doctor. The doctor gave us some prescriptions. I asked the doctor if we need to take my daughter to the hospital for confinement. The doctor adviced us that if the vomiting won't stop after taking his prescribed meds, We have to rush her to the hospital!

When we got home we gave her meds but the vomiting and pooping continues. It even got worst because of abdominal cramps. She even asked us to massage her tummy. It's really hard to see her in pain. though she wasn't crying, we could hear her whimper.She was starting to get pale,her lips were turning purplish blue. She was very weak. Her stools were so watery. She couldn't stop vomiting!

We then rushed her to the hospital. She looked so tired , sleepy and weak! I thought my daughter was dying!

The doctor diagnosed some dehydration (thank GOD  it was not severe!). She said it was because of what she intake! and I could only blame the chocolate drink! sorry pero wala na kong masisi kundi yung lasang panis na chocolate drink na natikman namen!

I know I'm just one of the million costumer of SM Hypermarket. I understand that this one complaint won't be your lost and no,I'm not crying over rotten chocolate milk! lol There's no point. I'd just get over it. Thank GOD my toddler's ok now. I have learned my lesson I should've tasted it first!

I'm not asking for anything . I'm just a concerned consumer. I just want you to be mindful of food safety. Thank You!

Mommy lies...

One Saturday afternoon, My daughter was looking at my Facebook wall when she suddenly shrieked "mommy this is mine!..and this, and another one! all mine!..bakit po suot ng mga bata mommy? "

She was referring to the tutus she modeled for my customers. I let her model some of my creations kase para makita yung designs when worn however every time I will ask her to wear a tutu she would first ask me if It's hers and I would tell her yes just to convince her . maling mali pala coz' children believe everything we say. 


"saan po tutu ko mommy?  saken un mommy diba?" 


At first I answered her , "Don't worry nak, Mommy will make another one for you ok? "  I felt guilty seeing her so upset.


Here's some of the tutus she modeled..hehe







Ano ang learning mga mommies?

Do not lie.

I have to remind myself that telling lies is bad, even to a toddler! even over small things. It will confuse them, It can give them mix messages and worst they'd think that lying can be right. 

We all want to teach our kids to be honest and trustworthy. We want to raise honest children so let's be a good example.

Now, when I ask her to fit some dresses I tell her first that those are not hers and they belong to someone else, that mommy sells those clothes. I also tell her that if she wants the same dress I can make one for her. I also make sure that I keep my promises.

I have a very matanong na anak. She's a curious little girl so I try to explain everything in the simplest way I can. We , however, have to tell our child age appropriate information.

Do not try to explain complex information to a toddler. sige try mong i-ispluk ang PORK BARREL sa 3 year old child mo..haha hope magkaintindihan kayo , GO! lolz.

and about white lie? I'll explain it to her when she's a bit older. =)

Here's my FB page pala if you want to check out more designs
