This is our youngest daughter AJ who is currently in 1st grade. Whenever I think about how fast she grows, I can’t help but wonder where have the years gone
? It was just 7 years ago when I was pregnant and being miserable. Time flies when you are having fun as what they say, and they are right. I am having fun with my kids that I didn’t even notice that it’s been almost 7 years when we first welcome her into our lives.

This child is the whiniest among our 6 children, but she can be the sweetest. She argues and fights with her older sister W but most of the times when W is not home, she would asked me constantly when is her sister coming home. They are what they call “FRENEMIES”. AJ is a smart little girl and a straight A’s at school that’s why her dad and I are very proud of her. She had been awarded a Leadership award at school few months ago. Although there are times that I think she drives me to my grave, I love her to death and she will remain my little girl forever.

In 2 weeks time, she will celebrate her 7th birthday and all she wants is to go to Buil-A-Bear Workshop, so she can get some stuff for her little bear. I guess, that request can be done and that would also be our “Mommy and Me” day. Advance Happy Birthday Sweetheart and I am hoping that you will enjoy being a child and I am here to make sure that before you grow up, you will make the most of your childhood. Daddy, Mommy and your siblings love you so much. Be a good girl always. Mwahhhhh!

Drum Set for the Music Loving Boy

Since he was young, my son Roan has shown an inclination to singing. I can still remember the time we spent the summer vacation in the Philippines, he would sing in the videoke even though he couldn’t read yet. How he was able to follow the lyrics, well, I didn’t know. He probably memorized it from what he heard from his dad. Needless to say, I kind of hope that he would grow up with love for music, because if that happens, I wouldn’t mind buying him a simple drums set to practice on. Who knows, maybe, when he got a little older, I would be able to buy an affordable pearl fusion drum set blue at guitar center for him. Well, why not? Right?

The Best Thing We Can Do


“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”

-C. Joybell C.

NC Health Agency

Life is tough. Ordinary employees, like my husband, work like crazy just so they could make both ends meet. I know we’re not the only family who is having a hard time, in fact I know that there are families that are in even worse shape than we are, and I’m secretly thankful for that. But blessed though we are,  I know we have to be very careful, both in mind and in body, to keep ourselves from being sick. But of course, we couldn’t avoid being under the weather every now and then.  And it helps if we have a health insurance to take care of us when things get tough healthwise. So, it would be a great idea to check out and find out how we can benefit from what it offers.

On Industrial Supplies

Well, since I turned my back on out-of-the house regular jobs and chose to watch over my children personally, I guess I have to do it as best as I could. That means I wouldn’t just limit my errands to cooking meals, mopping the floor, washing dirty dishes and helping the kids in their schoolwork. It means that I also have to take care of leaky faucets and clogged toilets. As a girl, that doesn’t sound so attractive, but as a mother, it is a must. So, it helps to know where to get the best industrial supplies. And where is that? Easy, reid supply co of course, where else?
