Skye just turned five. This was her second birthday spent in lockdown. Initially, we planned to invite just two of her closest friends to come here to our house and celebrate with her.

No, I’m not pregnant.
I just want to note down how it was when I was pregnant with my two kids.
When I was pregnant with Skye I became a food racist. No kidding.
I disliked to eat everything that was dark and would prefer those that were white or light-colored. Steak? Naaaahhhh. Carbonara? Yes!!! So even if it was yummy, I would shun it because of its color.
When I got pregnant with Rain, it was a different story all together. I loved to drink and drink and drink, and would feel thirsty all the time. It isn’t an exaggeration when I tell you that I drank 2 liters of water at night WHEN sleeping — I would wake up and sip, wake up and sip. Aaaand, the water could not be lukewarm. it had to be really cold! That was just evenings. During day time, I would drink more.
It was also the time when I discovered a certain fondness for mixing Coke with whiskey. It tasted exceptionally good! Around half a tablespoon of Jack Daniels mixed with ice cold Coke did the trick for me.
After giving birth, these cravings and irrational desires went away eventually. Praise God for that!
How about you? Do you know any genuine stories about pregnancy cravings?

Coming home from our camping trip, Waze made us pass thru Rizal. I thought, since we were already there, why not drop by Antipolo Rizal? I recalled that one of the members of Glam-o-mamas (fb group for moms) recommended it and mentioned that kids were allowed in the resto, so we decided to reserve a […]

How old were you when you thought of earning money to help your family？ I really do not know exactly what brought this about. Our homeschool lesson this entire school year (2020-2021) is all about occupation and maybe this was what influenced her. One fine afternoon, we were baking cupcakes for our own personal consumption […]

We received fresh herbs from good friends Derrick and Darlene, and I decided to bake bread with Skye. Upon research, we used the recipe found in Super Healthy Kids Website. We followed the recipe strictly but added the Oregano they sent along with the Rosemary. It is still Rosemary bread though 😅. However, it came […]
