If there’s one thing I regretted of not pushing through with my first born, it’s breastfeeding. If only I knew the importance of breastfeeding back then over the hours I spent at work, I would have given more time storing breast milk at least. Glad I did it for 6 months with my 2nd one. Yeah, proud of that teehee!
It’s amazing to know that these days, a group of mothers gather to promote the benefits of breastfeeding. This is organized by a Facebook group Breastfeeding Pinays. The activity seeks to promote the importance of women’s rights and proper support for breastfeeding mothers. Unfortunately, many people still condemn breastfeeding in public, which should not be the case. Let’s go over what HAKAB NA! 2017 brings and is all about.
Back to the normal grind. Get up earlier than the usual, everyday. Unending home works. Projects. And a lot more. My eldest is now at Grade 7 while the youngest is at Grade 2. Since High School has the most memorable days, I want Deye to make more memories which she will never forget, where in she has the opportunity to explore and learn more, with new set of friends maybe. So I’ve decided to transfer her to a big Catholic school, and tagged along Ishi with her. Here they are on the first day of school.
Time goes by too quickly. I can’t believe Deye is already in High School. Next thing I’ll know she’d be asking if she can go out with her friends, without me. I can see in her actions these past few days that she’s having a hard time dealing with more than 40 classmates, in a much bigger school with different approach. I hope she’d get along with everybody well despite her being too shy still. I know in time she’d get to adjust very well.
Every parent faces the dilemma of getting a pet for their child or children at some stage. Little ones can be very persuasive! If they have worn you down and you have agreed that an animal friend is going to join your household, all that’s left to do is choose what type! Here are some ideas.

Dogs are a kid’s best friend A dog is a lovely addition to any household. Your child will love having a pal to romp around with and to help them cause mischief. Children who like to develop strong bonds will do very well with a dog in the family. They are also great for teens who feel that no-one understands them. The relationship with a dog is very deep and intense and they literally become a member of the family.
All parents want their children to receive the best upbringing possible. Of course, there are as many different ideas about what this means as there are parents. No two parents are entirely the same in their approach, and everyone wants a certain set of things for their children. However, once you start to look at the many things that people frequently cite as essential for their children, certain patterns do tend to emerge. With that, we can put together a short list of the kinds of qualities that tend to mark out great upbringings. Let’s have a look now at some of the qualities of the best upbringing possible.
Lots Of Travel You know the saying: travel broadens the mind. This is certainly true, and it would be fair to say that the most malleable minds are the best to broaden. If you have the opportunity to allow your children to travel extensively while they are young, then you should absolutely do so. Of course, not everyone has the resources to be able to do this. But if you do, you should make the most of it. Getting your children to travel around the world instills in them a good understanding of what it means to be human – and if they have that early on, then you will find it makes a big difference to their personalities in later life. Even if you can only afford to travel a little, it is still definitely worthwhile for the many benefits it tends to bring to your children.
Summer has no doubt kicked in! This is the season which most of us look forward to, so as the nits and lice! The frequency of head lice increases in the warm months. Whether we like it or not, our kids might be one of those who will have these disgusting little creatures, that could annoy and kill the fun!! EukyBear has this line of lice solution products “Euky Bear Blitz Nitz” released which is perfect for summer!
My kids, who are actively into playing outdoors these days, are mostly prone to getting nits and lice, of which we cannot control unless preventive measures are taken.
