How To Become A Hands-On Parent While Earning

I had the privilege of attending this year’s H.O.P.E. Summit (Hands-On Parent While Earning) and I absolutely had a blast! Special thanks to Dulce and Kenny of Kansis Made for bringing me to the event!!

In the morning, the main speaker, Teresa Dumadag, talked about Time Management and gave us some worksheets that identified our “real time use” of our most abused commodity as a mother — time. Her talk helped us identify how we are actually using our time and how we can move those time wasters to more productive hours. It is just about intentions. If I intend for my daughter to remember me as a mother who had undivided time for her, then I would not Facebook while we play (which is something I am guilty of doing).

Teresa Dumadag, Founder of H.O.P.E. Summit

I felt inspired that even if she has 3 children all under 10 years old without a yaya (!) she still manages to pursue her passion like training and coaching. I can relate to her in many levels. I also do not have a helper at home. I bring the whole gang when I need to attend a meeting. When I was still hosting weddings, my husband and daughter would be with me in all my meetings and hosting gigs.

The afternoon session started with a short talk by Cathy Bautista, an equally inspiring woman! She is a mom of 3 who left the banking world and became a successful freelance Finance Advisor. I love her story, her personality and her courage. One thing I want to emulate is how positive she is about life. She has a gratitude attitude that I believe brought her to success. No matter what adversity, stay thankful!

Cathy’s talk was followed by Teresa sharing with us her talk on Freelancing. She gave straight-forward and doable tips on how you can make money by doing what you love. It gave me even more courage. You just gotta start somewhere. Be an expert. Build your name. Help people. And it’s going to be a non stop business. Ultimately, work around the kind of lifestyle you want which is the very reason you went out of the 8-5 — to spend more time with the family.

The panel discussion that came after was inspiring in that they are real life stories of courage and overcoming challenges. I love hearing their stories. One of my favorites was Mom & Milly’s humble beginnings. Kat, the Mom behind this wooden toys business, particularly inspired me when she shared their biggest hurdle and their courageous response of moving forward.

The whole day seminar ended with an engaging talk by Mariel Uyquiengco of The Learning Basket. She talked about Positive Discipline. I must admit my husband and I are in the opposing extreme side of the spectrum. He is very permissive and says yes to everything while I am very authoritative that I command and run my daughter’s life around my rules. I realized there is balance and being a total disciplinarian won’t work long term and would actually strain our relationship which is not something I want to happen! I can write an entire blog post series on what I learned from her short talk but I would leave you with her website: The Learning Basket and learn even more from there!

The talk left me inspired that it can be done! The people I have met are just like me. They have children that need their attention but they did not see this as a hurdle but as a driving force to work towards their passion, earn and spend quality time with our family.

Nutri10 Vitamins for kids 1 – 12

Nutri10 Vitamins is our newest discovery when we came back to the Philippines. I had always had a hard time giving my daughter vitamins. It has always been a huge struggle. When we were in Singapore, we discovered a chewable tablet that she loved. Unfortunately, this is not available here. Good thing that we had been introduced to Nutri10 Vitamins. One of my mommy friends said her son began having great appetite when she gave her this vitamins. My daughter isn’t exactly a picky eater but there are seasons when she would give me a hard time feeding her so having a vitamin for her daily is a must.

On our first day taking the vitamins, she was very excited to try it. I was wondering if she would really like it. And boy she did! I was to be honest very surprised because she NEVER liked any type of syrup whether vitamins or medicine. I got quite curious why she liked it so much so I tried it myself. I know right? What mommies do! Haha… When I took a tiny sip on her syrup I knew immediately why she liked it! The ponkan flavor was a hit! I suddenly remembered my own vitamins as a kid. I felt like it tasted just like this one.

What is amazing is that, she would be the one to remind me for her vitamins. She would go to the counter and point to her Nutri10 vitamins. She would even tell her dad about it when he comes home at night and brag that she was taking her vitamins. I can’t be any happier!

Nutri10 Vitamins from Wert Philippines is for kids 1 to 12 years old. It is a food supplement that has Taurine, CGF, Zinc and Lysine.

Mom and Son Matching Clothes by Zeep Kids

Mother Daughter Dresses abound but not very often do you see matching clothes for mommy and baby boy. Well, the long search is over. Mompreneur Gracie Maulion made it easy for mom of boys to find fashionable matching clothes.

 photo 16175040_1307390552638277_4625673318161186816_n.jpg

Being an online buyer myself, I find it hard to find brands that have quality materials. Either they are cheap but made of low quality fabric or you find a more reputable brand but you have to pay the price! As they say, you get what you pay for.

Well, not for Zeep Kids. Affordability meets quality. Not just that, their designs are fab! Go see it for yourself and check out their FB Page: Zeep Kids. I must say that there are a whole lot of different stores for matching clothes but most of them do not have a stylish touch which you can find from this store.

These are what some moms have to say:

Thank you zeep kids for our cute boho shorts and nautica matchy matchy, super love it.  worth it for the price very affordable lalo na medyo pricey ang clothes pang baby boy. And quality tlga ung clothes mo sis from the designs to fabric… very creative din ang packaging. Wait ko yung iba mo pang designs. God bless..

Ganda ng fabric ang lambot at comfortable isuot, 1st time hindi nairita si Drei kahit fit sa kanya yung shirt, ayaw na hubarin. Thank you Zeep Kids, sa uulitin

This momi and her Yael’s favorite and only to go to page for matchy clothes. Love the fabric, love the design, and love the peeps behind Zeep Kids.

Right now at 5 months pregnant, I know i wouldn’t look any further for matching clothes in case I would have a baby boy! I’m pretty excited!

Nursing Rooms in the City

Since we come from a far away land, we allot about an hour and a half commute (some walking plus train ride) to the city. And because of this, we have no choice but to either skip her nap or take her naps at the headquarters a.k.a nursing rooms.
When we go to Gymboree, we either nap at Tanglin Mall or we walk towards Orchard Road and take a good nap at Tang Plaza.
Nursing Room at Tanglin Mall. It is a big room with big diaper changing pad, a sink and 2 small nursing rooms with a single but comfortable couch.

The nursing room itself is pretty small but it’s okay as long as it is a closed space and private. The room is found on the 3rd floor beside the Restrooms so it’s quite easy to spot.

Nursing Room at Tang Plaza. I wouldn’t have known there was a nursing room here until I asked. There is not a clue the room was a nursing room until you ask one of the staff. It has a white door with no sign whatsoever. Inside the room is a big couch with 2 pillows and 1 chair. The room is too big. It would have been better if they put curtains to divide the room so that more nursing moms could use the place at a time instead of just one. Also, the music so quite loud! So if you are trying to put your Little One to sleep, you def would have a hard time! Anyway, I still like it because it’s better than nothing, eh?!

Are you still nursing your Little One? Does he/she still do even if you are out?

Gymboree at Tanglin Mall

Yesterday was our last day of free play at Gymboree. I’m sure the Little Girl enjoyed her 5 days of play at Gymboree for the past months. We got a great deal at Groupon for $60 of 5 session free play at either Gymboree Tanglin Mall or Gymboree Harbourfront. That’s about $12 per session. Not bad, I’d say.
Since Natalie loves moving around and jumping up and down, she absolutely enjoyed our Gymboree sessions. One hour seems to just pass by so quickly. We even had an episode yesterday because she didn’t want to leave yet. And when we did, she still wanted to return for another hour. Uhmm..

 photo gymboree 2.jpg

One thing I liked about Gymboree is that they often rearrange the play area so the kids always had something to look forward to. The equipments are mostly the same but since it is often reaaranged, they feel like there is something new each visit.

They also make sure both parents and kids use a hand sanitizer before entering. And kids are taken their temperature to make sure they aren’t feverish when they play.

 We will miss our regular trip to Tanglin Mall for sure.
