the tale of mister nailcutter


I cut my baby’s nails once a week. It was easier back then, when she was so small, she can barely lift anything except her head. Now, the struggle is real. hahaha.

when she started learning how to crawl, whenever, I would cut her nails, I’ll just distract her and count one through ten in English, Filipino and Arabic, she would listen intently during those times and alas! I have already finished!

the other day, I find it so difficult to make her sit still for me to be able to start cutting her long nails. I started doing the counting thing but it’s wasn’t working anymore. I even gave her stuff to play with but she ends up throwing those things in my face. And then suddenly, I said, hold it and she was startled, (with a weird sounding voice) “Hello Pia! I am Mr. Nailcutter! I am very very hungry! May I eat your nails?”   she started giggling and she gave out her hands willingly. (with a weird voice again) Ho, ho, ho! I am Mr. Nailcutter and I eat nails for dinner!” and then goes the giggling again.

that was one of a hell experience, I’m wondering what technique should I do next time. hahaha on a second thought, I could do her nails while she was sleeping but I’ll be sleeping too so no no no. Ill just think of another story to tell hahaha.

ang aking munting ipo-ipo


dahil ang buhay na kasama ka ay higit na mas maaksyon kesa sa Manga at Encantadia.

Kaya susulitin ko na habang baby ka pa,

mahal na mahal kita piatot!mwahtsup 😘😘😘😘😘😘

the struggle is real


hindi ako palaaway na tao at ang pinakagrabeng nagawa ko sa buhay ko ay hilahin ang buhok ng isa kong pinsan sa sobrang bwisit ko sa kanya, (p.s. hindi sabunot kundi hila kasi ang haba ng hair niya, tumakbo siya nun tapos hinabol ko tapos hinila ko ung dulong buhok niya, at talagang nagpaliwanag ako hahaha)

feeling ko mahirap talaga makipag-away at makipagbasag-ulo pero pakiramdam ko ngayon mas mahirap yung makipagbuno ka sa walong buwang baby para lang mabihisan siya at malagyan ng diaper nang hindi siya masasaktan.

hahaha >:)

mother’s instinct


 

_20160607_133306

Kanina pinagbantay muna ko ni daddylabs ng tindahan namin dahil may gagawin siya saglit. dahil tulog naman si piatot iniwan ko siya sa kwarto ng mahimbing. lumipas ang ilang minuto, nalibang na ko manuod ng pelikula sa laptop nakatatlo nga ata ako pero syempre super forward yun, haha. tapos bigla ko na lang naisip na silipin yung anak ko kahit sabi sakin eh huling silip daw ay mahimbing pa din ang tulog. sabi ko sisilipin ko pa din, tapos pagpasok ko ng kwarto gising na pala siya at tulala sa kisame. Parang nakikiramdam kung may kasama ba siya or wala. Nung nakita ako bigla siyang ngumiti.

syempre feeling ko mother’s instinct agad yun hahaha

dahil mas marami pang mahalagang bagay kesa pag-eemote


Habang nakahiga ako katabi ng anak kong payapang natutulog na may konting paghihilik on the side, iniisip ko kung saan ako nagkamali sa pagsagot sa interview at exam ko kahapon sa isang kumpanya. andaming tanong bigla sa utak ko. bakit kaya hindi pa sila nagtetext. zero ba ko sa exam? hindi nila feel ang aura ko? pati ba naman sa non-voice bokya ako? hanggang mapunta sa saan ba ko nagkamali ng desisyon sa buhay at struggling pa din ako? nakakaguilty bigla na nag-anak ako pero hindi ko pa siya kayang bigyan ng magandang buhay na tutugma sa ideal na magandang buhay sa isip ko.

hanggang sa naalala ko hindi ko pa pala napaplantsa yung damit ng baby ko na nilabhan ni daddylabs. 

tapos may narinig ako sa isip ko na nagsabing “Cut! OA na!”

oo na, eto na nga, magpaplantsa na.

letsugas na election campaign jingle


Yung eksenang laging nagugulat ang anak mo sa sobrang lalakas na volume ng mga hinayupak na sasakyang nangangampanya, sarap lang pasabugin. (in my dreams,hahaha)

Dapat talaga may batas ding nagtatakda ng volume ng mga election jingle ng mga vehicle campaign eh. badtrip.

a glimpse of my day


_20160409_192822

supposedly, this photo would sum up what happened in my entire day today but I forgot to include taking my baby’s newborn screening results.

I’m glad to share that my baby’s NBS is normal! Thank goodness! I can relax for now.

Oppps! I forgot I can’t relax just yet. My baby’s having the side effects of the vaccine. She’s got fever and has been very fussy since she got the shot. I’ve been told to do cold compress in the afternoon and warm compress in the evening. I already gave her paracetamol to manage her pain and fever. I hope she’ll be okay tomorrow. 🙏

a piece of heaven


andami kong iniisip nitong mga nakaraang araw. siguro epekto ng puyat at tambay mode. pakiramdam ko wala kong direksyon. nakakapraning din pala yung ganitong buhay. lalangoy o lulubog. minsan nakakadepress lang. ready na kong makinig sa kantang emo at lunurin ang sarili ko sa nakakaurat na pakiramdam ko ngayon kaso bigla kong napatingin sa gilid ko.

tapos naisip ko, may langit pala dito sa lupa. napangiti na lang ako.☺

metamorphosis


my little one’s a month old now! I’m telling you guys she’s got a bit of a temper but she’s adorable nonetheless.

(start from upper left) inaantok. ginulo. nagising ang diwa, badtrip men! nagalit! Wahahaha

Time flies really fast! It was just yesterday that I’m feeling her kicks in my tummy and now she’s kicking me for real with matching eye rolling. I don’t know where she got her maldita tendencies though. hahahaha

Oh, my baby girl can sometimes be as princess-like if she would like to be but that would be when she’s peacefully sleeping 😴.

our baby is now a little lady

I haven’t slept soundly for a longtime now but who am I to complain when just one smile of my little one makes it all worthwhile? (I’m definitely baby-whipped!hahaha)
