    Let kids be kids

    Let kids be kids.” This is what my husband tells me – all the time.

    We are opposite. I say no. He says yes all the time. I make rules. A lot. Here are a few:

    • Gadgets can only be used up to 9pm on weekdays provided they’re all done with their homework.
    • I allow them to be on Social Media but yes, I have all the access, all notifs go to my inbox.
    • Or they have to finish their homework first then they can go and play outside, in the condition that they should be home before the lamp post opposite the house turns on.

    You can’t blame me. He’s not here. What they become will definitely reflect on me and how I raised them. No, I am not trying to be a perfect mom here but I just feel it’s the right thing to do.

    Good Buy from Lazada Midyear Sale

    I promise I didn’t buy anything unuseful from the recently Lazada midyear sale. One of them was this lunch box that I have been wanting to buy but couldn’t find the perfect match to my liking. The size is bigger than what I was expecting, and that’s great!

    No, I am not into bento baon making ‘coz I know I cannot keep up until the end of the school year, but I have been looking for something with partitions so that the dishes won’t mix with each other.

    So there, I patiently searched for it during the Lazada midyear sale and luckily found this one with lunch bag included.

    How To Get Your Kids Clean Their Bedroom

    Getting the kids to do household chores these days is harder, as they are always hooked with their gadgets and some other things they tend to remember doing just when other chores assigned to them are due.

    I have two girls, and it is just right to teach them as early as now. Despite growing up with a house-helper around them, they know that they need to get their asses up and work on stuff, otherwise, they also know what’s going to happen. You see, I can be the coolest mom on earth but at the same time, I can be a monster mom they don’t want to see.

    girls' bedroom

    We do not force them to wash the dishes, nor clean the whole house but at least start from where they keep their personal stuff and that, of course, “their bedroom”. Early this year, we had their bedroom renovated that left them with no choice but to maintain it as how I have already organized it, otherwise… So how do I make them do it?
