Off To India (Again) Next Year

Hmmm… we’ll be off to India next year. My husband’s youngest sister is getting married. I just love their place, Goa. But not Mumbai, I’m sorry, it’s worst than Manila.

Been there once, in year 2003. I met the parents hehehe!

If you are really looking for a place to relax, Goa is one of the best places I’d recommend. Look at this photo, para akong reyna ng bukid di ba? I remember it was along the way, nakita ko ang bukid and I told my hubby to stop para makapagpose hahaha! Iba talaga! Fresh na fresh. Maaamoy mo pa yung mga dahon dahon at poo poo ng kalabaw hehe! Kung may babalikan ako sa India, yun ay Goa kasi di siya polluted. Breath-taking views talaga ang makikita mo at di mga bulok na buildings at siksikang kalye!

Eto pa yung iba…

Dada Wants One More

Yay! Dada wants one more! Yes, one more baby! :p

I still remember saying to him “Mahal, I want 4 kids”. He was kinda “What? 4 kids? I only want 1 daughter, she’ll be my princess blah blah blah!”

After having Deye, nabaligtad na ang lahat hahaha! One is enough for me and he wants one more. Just the other night before going to bed, we were discussing about Deye wanting playmates. Makikita mo talaga yung excitement sa mukha nya when she sees kids at home.

So I asked him, do you really want one more? He said yeah, I want a son this time. Nanlaki ang mata ko and replied what if we won’t have a boy? He teased me with his reply and smiled “then we’ll see…”

Medyo takot ako kasi nasa family namin ang “twins”. My mom has two sisters and both had twins. Mommy ko lang ang wala kaya sabi nila baka sa akin mapunta.

Di naman sa tumatanggi ako sa grasya dahil madaming gustong magkaanak, pero baka kasi di naman kayanin, mahirap na ang buhay eh! Kesa naman mga bata ang maapektuhan.

Anyway, back to having one more baby… I told him okay 4 years from now. Hehehe! He just kept quiet! Sila kaya ang magbuntis at manganak, hmp!!!

Blog Effect

I started blogging in Multiply 4 years ago but never been addicted like this. All I wanted was to express what I’d felt at that moment. I went on with the same purpose until I got pregnant. I became a regular blogger updating my pregnancy in Baby Crowd, but that’s all about it. Just to save time updating family and friends.

Until…

I discovered Pinoy Moms Network. I got hooked. Knowing that in every part of the world, there are moms out there who share the same thoughts and learning experiences about Motherhood.

Thanks to Kimmy for taking me to Sexy Mom’s Blog where I found PMN’s link. :p

The Little Things

I normally delete the forwarded emails that I get each day except for this one…

As you might know, the head of a company survived 9/11 because his son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of an auto accident.

One of them missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change.
One’s car wouldn’t start.
One went back to answer the telephone .
One had a child that dawdled and didn’t get ready as soon as he should have.

One couldn’t get a taxi.

The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today.
No
w when I am
stuck in traffic , miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone ... all the little things that annoy me. I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment…

The little things that we ignore sometimes and even get annoyed when things don’t happen as how we want them to be at that moment. But did you ever think that there could be a reason behind it?

After reading this email, maybe you will….

Fatherhood Matters

As I was publishing c0-bloggers’ comments in some of my entries, someone has caught my attention named JohnnyO.

I knew he’s a guy. But not really sure. I seldom encounter ‘male’ sentiments, that’s why…. So I checked his profile and I was right. Just by learning his blogspot name Fatherhood Matters, I can tell… He has so much to share…. Again, my guess was right!

Reading his entries just made me realized one thing… Father knows best too!
