Meet Dodo

FYI, I have a daughter who's turning 10 this December and a baby boy turning 1 this September. Although I was quite pleased with their age difference, considering the troubles I might have if I were raising two tots at the same time, the role of being the primary - more of overall - caregiver of the baby fell unto my already-overworked shoulders, despite protestations. I would like it to be a family effort unfortunately it didn't turn out that way. Ate wants to be left alone; Dad won't be bothered when resting (which takes 2-3 hours everytime he comes home in a day and he comes home 11am and 7pm so you could just imagine how much time that leaves me to deal things without the baby in tow) Sometimes, the dad gets the baby out of the house - and out of my hair - but that would mean just a measly 1-2 hours window time, barely finishing household chores by the time they get home.

You see, I adamantly oppose the idea of hiring a yaya for the kids. I believe that it will only encourage laziness at the same time defeat the idea of self-independence. I would like my kids to grow as self-reliant, independent human beings capable of deciding and doing things for themselves. Well that backfired, thank you very much, as I am now a certified "momya". That is mommy+yaya to you.

To make my momya duties a little easier (more of distracting the whiny baby), I have enlisted help from some friends.  Today you get to meet, Dodo:

Dodo, Chino's friend :)

Dodo keeps Chino gum-satisfied whenever the baby feels the urge to bite and my skin no longer has the patience for it. So, thank you Dodo and  I hope you live long :)

schmelly me

I am officially declaring myself as the family's very own schmelly mom!

It's already 1:45Am and I'm already 33 hours without bath. gahh!!

I have just finished working on a client's Twitter account, which I have worked in an hour after putting the baby to sleep (which took a good hour off my time too but didn't mind because I was reading the whole time. lol. talk about multi-tasking!)

All the while ideas for this blog were dancing around my mind like crazy. I was literally itching to get started! I suppressed cursing though as I am aware that cursing in front of the baby is bad parenting. lol :)

Anyway, it's now 1:49AM and I really have to go. I still have to figure out how to transfer photos from my phone to the computer. Aside from that tomorrow is a really busy day for me as I am expecting bags from the supplier and I hope to get some more to sell.

Yep, you heard me right. I sell bags too :)

..and I still have to figure out that Multiply thingie..

..and yes, I really need to go take my bath now or I'll suffer the consequences.

goodnight :)

After spending 3hours playing with mom-variables for a name, I came up with something I really like. Looks like we're on again guys! I'm back and I hope this time, it'll be for good :) Let me just have a play on this dashboard and we'll kick start things really really good :)

I'm going to close the other blog - debating with myself actually if I'll close it or just leave it as it is. I was touched by blog catalog people who still check on my blog even if the last post was dated 2 years ago. I hope they will throw me again some love :) I am also going to try to change my profile name, if that can be done so..

Guess I'll see you again tomorrow? ;)
