I Must Be Getting Old…

So, I just got home after hanging out in a coffee shop watching people do what they do on Friday nights. It’s been a long while since I’ve had a Friday night doing what people do to celebrate the weekend.

So there I was, sitting with my feet up on the opposite chair, sipping on a cold coffee drink watching the crowd in front of me with a mixture of detached amusement and amazement. Man, I can only shake my head as I got up and left.

Blabber Chapter: Sleep Deprived

Hello, dears! I am still alive. Well, barely, that is. LOL!

It seems that I’ve been running on caffeine for the past few weeks. It seems that the days are so short and time has been running faster, don’t you agree? It feels like I just blinked and the month of March is almost over. Where did all the days go? I barely got things done in my list!

4 DIY Items For Toddlers’ Home Activities

Toys are used in Z’s occupational therapy. In an hour’s time, he gets to use about 3-4 different kinds of toys for different activities. So with that, I have been consciously buying toys similar to what he uses in therapy to ensure continuity of his activities at home.

But toys are really expensive. Especially the ones that promote motor skills development. And I also have to keep in mind that I have limited space at home so I really don’t want to hoard a lot of toys. However, there are a lot of things within our homes that can be used to develop fine motor skills. All it takes is a little creativity on our end.

Here’s a few of the things that we use at home to continue Z’s therapy activities at home.

Menu Planning and More at Mommy Mundo’s Good Eats for Moms

I find menu planning quite hard to do. You see, I always run out of ideas on what to cook for the day, much less for a week! But menu planning makes a lot of things more efficient and time saving, wouldn’t you agree?

Happy Hearts Day!

“I wonder if you are one of the millions of people I pass by everyday. And I wonder if you are wondering how you’re going to know that it was me you’re looking for, too.

Blabber Chapter: Post Go-Live Woes

For every project that I was a part of, the go-live is never an issue. The real issue begins after go-live where you encounter issues upon issues that you’ve never considered during testing stage.

Same thing applies after I migrated my blog. I am encountering things, not necessarily an issue, that I’ve never considered before. It’s baffling, really, to realize that I need to do a lot of manual work after migration. I’ve been editing posts and links for the past few days now and I am not yet done

Stop and Smell the Roses: Raising a Special Needs Child in a Fast-Paced World

Raising a special needs child in this modern world is not easy. I lived a fast-paced life. Cramming 48-hour tasks in a 24-hour day, even sacrificing rest and family time, just to get something done was my norm. I barely had time to appreciate the sunrise nor the sunset or even enjoy a cup of coffee without trying to finish another task. However, I needed to make drastic changes to my fast-paced lifestyle when my son was born.
