    Raising an unplugged kid in this tech-savvy generation.

    Not too long ago, children used to play outside all day, playing sports, riding bikes and engaging in creative play that didn’t require expensive gadgets or parental supervision. But unfortunately, today, this is far from the case. Today, it’s not uncommon to see toddlers and preschoolers carrying around an iPad or any gadgets.  So choosing to raise an unplugged kid in this tech savvy generation is not really that easy but it’s so worth it. Screens put everything on the table so that there is nothing to uncover. But when we get out of our children’s way and let them be bored they come up with all sorts of exciting things…

  • Twinning

    I always love the idea of twinning with my daughter. I guess it’s every girl’s dream to have a daughter so they can play dress up. I like to buy twinning clothes or just mix and match our clothes. It’s one of our bonding and Zoe really likes it when we do twinning. Last year, I bought this twinning wrap dress from @chichigirlscloset. It’s one of our favorite but Zoe almost outgrow her dress. We love to pair our dresses with our white shoes. Zoe loves her Sperry and I’m wearing Adidas. Whenever we take ootds, almost all photos are candid because we’re just playing and enjoying while my brother…

  • Paint With Zoe

    At 10 months old, Zoe can hold crayons properly and loves to doodle already. She loves arts and crafts so much and can spend an hour without getting bored even at her young age. Since she turned 1, Zoe loves painting with tempera paints or watercolor more than drawing with crayons. She’ll use her brush, paint with her hands and look for something she can use to finish her artwork. When she paints, I don’t ask her to draw something. I just let her imagination flow. She’ll decide what colors to use or combine colors and the result is always amazing. So today, when she asked me to set up…

  • Happy 3rd Birthday My Princess 🎂

    Today you are three. This year, we don’t have a fancy birthday party for you unlike your first birthday. But as soon as you wake up I want you to be happy and feel extra special today. So last night, I set up your kitchen area for my little surprise. Who wouldn’t want to wake up to your favorites right? Indeed, as you opened your eyes. You giggles and uttered “Wow, mom it’s so nice.” “Thank you. I love you” And my heart just melted. I am so happy to see you so happy. Simple things like the balloons, flowers, gifts and cakes are your favorites that really makes you…

  • 10 tips to make your toddler's potty training successful.

    On my previous post I shared about Zoe’s potty journey (click this Key to potty training ). Today, I will be sharing some tips that worked for us and might help you with your bubba’s potty journey. 1. Demonstrate Children are observers and they learn by observing and watching. Zoe always follows me whenever I use the restroom. Because she’s clingy like that. Haha I know most mommas can relate. So when she wanted a potty seat she knows how to use it already just by observing me. 2. Buy tools Buy them a potty or potty seat or both. It is very important that they are comfortable. Because when…

  • The key to Potty Training

    Each child is unique and therefore what applies to one may not apply to other. As we all know most moms are facing the challenges of potty training. But luckily for us, it went by smoothly. Zoe was just 11 months old when she saw a toilet seat while we’re at the mall. Bought one for her then the next day she wanted to use it already. Since that day, no more dirty diapers for us. I know her cues and she say poo poo every time she need to use the restroom. I was really shocked that she insisted to potty trained at her early age. After a few…
