You’re Simple the Best!

I have to admit that my husband is a much better parent than I am. He is #PaulParcs teacher, disciplinarian and playmate at home. They may fight and argue at times but at the end of the day they share the biggest hug and they’re the best of friends!🤗

Always consistent, intentional, patient and loves like no other and I admire that about him. He has the energy and enthusiasm to do things for us unselfishly.👊🏼

Thank you for modeling a life of faith and worship to our son. I am so grateful to God that I get to bring up a child with you! You make life easier for me and #PaulParcs. We love having you around all the time. Thanks Tatty! Mommy Kikik and #PaulParcs loves you soooo mucho!😍

Three-mendous JOY!

Now Three…

Be gentle, be kind, be good, be nice, be generous and be wise. Words would not suffice for all the things I want to teach you. Time is not enough for me to teach you values that I want to impart to you. Parenthood comes naturally and it amazes me how your tatty and I can teach you things one at a time or sometimes at the spur of the moment. I am always reminded to be a better, kinder and loving person towards other people because of you.

Although I don’t want to admit this, I hate seeing you grow up so fast… (sigh…) but you have to and while you’re growing up I need to learn how to let go of you so you can go and fulfill your God given destiny. That you may do great things in life because you are a planet shaker and a world changer!

I always tell you I love you ever since you were still an infant, now that you’ve grown older it’s your small voice that I can hear whispering to my ears I love you too mommy. You’d plant kisses all over my face, hug me and ask me to play with you like there’s no tomorrow.

I have these memories kept in my heart forever, if only I could hold on to you forever my little one, my Paul! That’s why mommy likes to take lots of pictures to capture every milestone, every smile, every move, every laugh you make and every single thing that we do together. There’s nothing like the love a mother has for her child!

Now that you’re three, we will have more funny moments, do lots of adventures together with tatty (Legoland here we come!), we will spend more quality time and just do spontaneous things that we all can enjoy and remember for the rest of our lives. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you in the future!

I love you Paul. Your tatty loves you and so many other people because you all make us happy. You’re a joy giver! Three-mendous joy. Jesus loves you so much!

Toddler to Pre Schooler

All Grown Up…

A few more months and my little lad’s going to school! It was only like yesterday when I first held him in my arms… Sob… My little boy is growing up fast, a pre schooler soon… I noticed changes in his size (height and weight) early January this year but what surprised us all was his sudden weight gain from 13kgs to 20kgs!

OMG #PaulParcs no wonder I’m having back pains!😱 Your BMI is 22.6. That puts you above the 95th percentile, which indicates you are OBESE.😅 44.1lbs.(20kgs.), 37in. (94cm.) @32months 🤔 #BMI #toddlertales #heavyweight #myfatkid #fatsoPaul #porkyPaul

I still want to carry him like a baby but the problem is, I get all kinds of body aches whenever I do! I still can’t believe my son is no longer a small baby but a little boy expressing his desire to go to school!

He eats a lot, likes the company of kids who are older than him, he enjoys watching videos, plays with Nerf guns, runs around, he can memorize the 9 planets in the solar system, he’s a walking encyclopedia in training, polite, well behave, obedient though at times can go a little bit out of control, he shouts and punches or kick when provoked, throws things when in tantrums especially when he’s tired and sleepy, he likes animals and loves nature and most of all he likes being surrounded by people he loves and who loves him. He is in fact a darling of the crowd and my boy amazes me so much, he makes me proud as a mom!

His bright and happy personality is enough to make one smile, his curly hair and chubby cheeks make the ladies scream. His charisma, charm and wit makes people turn their heads to him but despite all the attention he gets, it’s our love and attention (his parents) that he is longing most. He likes to cuddle with me and his tatty, he always ask us to play with him, pray and eat together.

His love language is TIME and his love tank is always full! What a blessed boy he is!😊

Sweet Summer Memories

Summer Fun…

We’ve been living in Cebu for 8 years now and looking back from where it all began I always wondered how it feels like to be in a place where I don’t know anybody (aside from my sis and bro in law). The Bisaya language that used to sound so gibberish to me became second nature and when I met Rocky my journey in this once strange place automatically changed. We both explored Cebu like never before and it is now more enjoyable with the three of us doing adventures together in the Philippines famous Pearl of the Orient Seas.

For our little family, the most valuable possession we will ever have are the shared experiences and memories that link our hearts together. Making memories doesn’t have to be expensive and can be done planned or unplanned. Having Rocky and Paul means having an instant and constant travel and adventure buddies.

Summertime Rolls

Cebu…Ubec…

When you live in a place where beaches are accessible, it is too impossible to resist the beauty it has to offer especially when the summer heat is on.

This summer, we are in quest for amazing beaches to visit around Cebu. A great way to have family bonding, swimming, sun tanning, star gazing and food tripping like what we did in Moal Boal.

Our restless feet are always on the go itching to do some adventures with our little wanderer who doesn’t mind getting dragged by his parents.haha! Good thing he likes long travels and enjoys watching the scenery.

Thank you Lord for a wonderful family time.

Home Sweet Home

Our First Month…

With a handful of things to do (work and home) and a toddler in tow, blogging is almost impossible for me to do. I am aiming to write at least one blog every month and because I really do love writing or journaling, I don’t want it to become an obligation. I am wondering how other mums with a large brood of children juggle their mommy duties as I have been so busy with only one for the past 2 years!

While writing this, I am pausing from my laundry task to keep my thoughts intact. It’s almost a month since we settled in to our new place and we are liking our new home so much! There’s always a lot of things to do, visitors to entertain, friends and family sleeping over, groceries getting bigger and tons of stuff to get busy with.

It’s nice that we can finally accommodate people, have a barbecue party and let Paul play outside because the area is bigger and better. Though we shed out a hefty amount of money to fill it with furnitures and appliances, at the end of the day my husband and I always say that it’s worth it! Totally!

When you have a family, your priority changes and you always want the best for them. Most of all I’d like to thank my husband for being a good provider!

Thank you Lord for our new home. 🙂
