They say it's just normal. But I am now here at the point where I got back to questioning: "why, Mother Nature, why?" I mean, after the "getting fat" phase, the roller coaster of emotions, the crying all the time, the wild cravings, the bleeding, the painful boobs while breastfeeding, the lack of sleep. Now … Continue reading Postpartum hair loss?
Remember when we first met? Haha! Of course you don't. But as your mom, that day was and is one of the most unforgettable days of my life.

They … Continue reading “Children don’t hear us. They imitate us.”

Haha! I said it's funny, because I started listing the pros first and suddenly I had nothing to write under the cons list. I mean I had to re-read my previous posts and Google "what's sad about being a single parent" just to make myself remember. Or maybe the time I was drafting this was just a happy … Continue reading My funny but true list of pros and cons on being a single mother
Organizing my baby's Christening was very tiring but fun. I got the church that I wanted, the food was taken care of at our venue, her dad's there, my family was there, and my very supportive friends were there.

If you have the convenience of calling their offices, then good for you. But for moms like … Continue reading My Makati Med experience
