Cheers to Life, Cheers to Everyday

Cheers to Life, Cheers to Everyday


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 both sides.


The story of my life.

A Mom of Preschoolers

Being a mom (of preschoolers now) means dealing with these on a daily basis, the fighting, the bickering, the he-started-it-first. At times they resolve it all on their own, many times the referee has to step in. Being a mom at this stage also means stepping up the effort on teaching, what with tiger moms constantly parading their kids’ achievements in front of your face. Yes, yes, we get it, your child’s the first in everything and we’re just mere mortals. Being a mom at this stage also means taking proper care of everyone’s health because with kids being in school, catching sickness is as natural as breathing.

Whew, the stress!

On the bright side, being a mom at this stage is also a treasure of memorable and cheerful moments. It’s a fun stage where the kids are learning and exploring. It’s hard to focus on just a single event (because there are just so many!) so I’ll just list a few of the most memorable ones.

Cheers of Everyday

1. When they make funny faces.

2. When you saw them perform onstage for the first time.


3. When you see them at play.


4. When he made you proud by walking by himself down the aisle.

5. When he’s old enough to know what he wants.


6. When he just can’t stop laughing. 🙂


Stressful as it is, I wouldn’t want to miss these cheerful moments of their childhood. Speaking of cheers, have you heard about Cheers? 

Yes, those in the bright colored packaging inside my grocery cart. 🙂

Cheers in My Cart

Cheers offers a wide range of table napkins and kitchen towels for your picnic and party needs. It’s my personal choice whenever we’ll have guests over or simply for our own use at home. They’re big and thick, not the kind that you throw away after just one wipe. Plus, it’s made from 100% virgin pulp so I can be sure that it’s free from artificial whiteners and elemental chlorine ensuring the safety of my family and our guests.

Cheers Products

Oh yes, about my hoard in the previous photo… We’ll be having a party at home this coming Holidays so I’m stocking up already. Yey, more cheerful moments to make and treasure with the kids! 🙂

Happy Cheers Holidays ahead! 🙂

  1. I can’t relate with the referee thing because I only have one child. But I remember my childhood days, ganun din kami na magkakapatid, nagtuturuan kung sino may kasalanan. I agree, Cheers tissues are thick so ok talaga na pangwrap sa sandwiches.

  2. Cheers! I can totally relate on this. Though I only have one child at this moment feeling ko ang dami nya sya kulit, haha. I really when my son is just laughing, super nakakahawa hehe.

  3. Awww, I can relate to this. The difference is that I have to referee my girls who are just one year apart. And their teenagers now! Waaa! My boys are only 5 years old and 6 weeks old so it will be a while til I have to step in on one of their quarrels. 🙂 But parenting is definitely more than that! There’s a lot more good stuff. 🙂 Cheers!

  4. Mommy moments. 🙂 I’m experiencing them at this stage as well. 2 boys and another one coming. 🙂 Cheers to that. More tissues are needed for moms not oy for the tears, but for the mess, the wounds, and the tears of joy with them. 🙂

  5. Your two boys are truly adorable. Those scenes like who started first is also very common in our household. Also the kind of life I have and perhaps learned to accept.

    Love the content as well of your grocery cart. Seems like a big party indeed. Cheers!

  6. Thank you for sharing a their life timeline! Look how cute they were! And they turned out to be really good looking boys. I have to agree, minsan nakakaloka pag may bata pero sabi ng mga may teenagers ng anak, sobrang nakakamiss din daw pag bata pa sila.

  7. Your boys are so adorable! <3 I agree with you. No matter how stressful motherhood or parenting can be, isang ngiti lang ng mga LOs natin pawi na ang lahat ng pagod, inis at sakit ng ulo. Haha! Never had a chance to try Cheers. I'll check that out on our next grocery trip. 🙂

  8. Same us here my Zd boy also ay supper napakakulit at napakamalikot, nako hindi yun nag bebehave kahit 2 seconds lang. But I’m still thankful to God kasi na chachallenge ako hehehe! Lalo na ang pagiging patience at pagiging watchful sa kanya. I love your little guy so cute and handsome.

  9. I am a teacher of Grade 7 students. Even though they are already in high school, most of them act like elementary kids too. They also have their fights and at times they point fingers on one another. Being a teacher is being a mom also. In class, I am their second mom. So, I can understand how you feel with your two boys. It’s difficult whenever that thing happens, but it’s rewarding once we make them at peace with one another.
