3 Lessons from the Lactation Room

Just one week of being away from the baby for long periods landed me in the Lactation Room at Cardinal (Cardinal Santos Medical Center). I was there for three long hours while the lactation nurse worked on my clogged ducts and milk blisters. It was not the most fun of experiences and I certainly won’t […]

The One about the Donation

Someone asked for my help and I refused. And that’s a first. A couple of days ago, out of nowhere, a friend chatted me up on social media. It started with a big, big congratulations on the baby, which I found odd as it’s been almost four months since I gave birth. Still, I thanked […]

When I Became the Mommy Monster

The boys seemed to have grown fangs and tails overnight. Bad behaviour resurfaced, good manners forgotten. That, coupled with a […]

Baby K’s Birth Story

Hi everyone! I’m back! Well, not really. I’m still in zombie mode but I’ll squeeze in this birth story while it’s still fresh in my mind.

And the third place goes to… It was the day of the kids’ declamation contest. Each of the seven classes has performed its stint, showcasing the students’ vocal powers and acting abilities. In all fairness, my class had done very well. No, I’m not the teacher, nor was I the coach. I was just the class rep sitting […]

Cheers to Life, Cheers to Everyday

Cheers to Life, Cheers to Everyday

Waaaaa! I hurry to the next room to find one boy crying and the other boy with a toy sword, the weapon of the hour, on his hand. He started it!  The other boy tearfully counters, He hit me first! Don’t believe him. He’s lying! This goes on for the next few minutes, with no sign of relenting from […]
