Why I Like My Google Phone #1

Reason #1:

What's not to like with Live wallpapers?? Moreso, if it's as colorful and fun as these balloons?

If you're a mom like me and you have a rambunctious toddler like mine, these kinda stuff helps "entertain" them a bit and it's totally free :)

Watch out for my next few videos as I document why I am loving my Google Phone (powered by Android!!!!)

I'm sure there's some apps for Live wallpapers for newer iPhones as well. But I use Google stuff a lot (blogger, picasa, email, docs, contacts, calendar, map, etc). So this works out great for me :)

Woooohoooo!!!

Here are my rubber case for my g2!!! Just got them from the mailbox!

God bless my heart I am sooo happy :)

Lousy Havaianas!!!


I think I have 2 more pairs I've already tossed out on top of these. I
thought they're supposed to be durable? Or maybe I have heavy feet I
keep on breaking them.

A few of these were already about 5 years old & I used them for about
2 years before they gave up on me that's why they already look old &
nasty.

I finally found some spare time to snap pics of them so it's
time to go bye bye to these guys. Thank goodness to mobile blogging,
makes blogging a hundred times easier for me :)

Oh well. Whatever.

Mikka Counting in Tagalog

My daughter just beat her daddy into counting in Tagalog, haha. She counted from 1 to 10 while her daddy could only say "sampu" (# 10).

The kiddo is almost 23 months old here. She could count in Spanish as well for sometime now, just haven't had the chance to upload the video on that.

Anyhoo, enjoy this video of the loveydoveydoos of my life :)

Talk to me H-O-N-E-Y!

A while back, I was talking to my girlfriend on the phone and was surprised the way she talked to me:

GF: "Yea, I brought her to the D-E-N-T-I-S-T and it was miserable. They had to do this and that yaddyaddyaddayadda to her T-E-E-T-H and she was C-R-Y-I-N-G like there was no tomorrow".

Me: "HUH?"

Turned our her toddler was next to her and she didn't want her to know that we're talking about her and her experience at the dentist. But that time, I didn't get the concept... not until a few weeks ago and found ourselves spelling some words as well as we speak while our daughter was  next to us.


Scenario#1:

Hubby: "We gotta give her a piece of C-O-O-K-I-E everytime she pees on the P-O-T-T-Y"....

Me: "Are you sure? Maybe we can give her just S-T-I-C-K-I-E-S so she wouldn't keep on eating C-O-O-K-I-E-S after P-O-T-T-Y"

Scenario#2:

Me: "So, are we still eating our I-C-E-C-R-E-A-M tonight?"

Hubby: "Of course, after she goes to B-E-D"...

Sooooo weird and funny at the same time. We had no choice or else once she hears the word ice cream, she'd be constantly begging me, "Ice cream, mommy... ice cream!!! Yummy!! Please? Want some! Please, please, please!"

Oh parenthood :)

I Don't Wanna Be a "Marlin".... Or Maybe I Do!

Uhmm, Marlin... you know, Nemo's uber protective dad?

A couple of months back I went out with 2 of my girlfriends and we tagged along each others' tots. One has a 4 yr old, the other one has a 2 yr old and mine's 20 month old back then. 

After dinner, we took the kids to the play area right in front of the bookstore. I am ashamed to admit that it was the first time I took my daughter to a "public" play area that has a lot of kids playing at the same time. We normally bring her to the park when there's literally nobody else is playing except us. I have this annoying mindset that she's going to pick up germs and get sick afterwards (which of course was realized the following day but that's a separate story).

Anyways, throughout the time we were there, I found myself always running after my daughter making sure that she's safe and that the bigger kids wouldn't knock her off. I made her play on her own however I was always beside her while my girlfriends were telling stories and catching up. They were just fine with their kids running around on their own while I was super scared that my baby could get hurt and such, etc etc. I wish I have the "courage" to let go and do the same.

I asked my husband that night if I'm being over protective of the kiddo. I totally think I am. At her age (she's 22 months old now), she never get to try eating candies just yet, whole grapes, roasted peanuts, etc that I feel could make her choke. I finally was able to give her corn in a cob a few weeks ago. But everything else like fruits, vegetables, chicken drumsticks, I always cut them to the size I knew it would be safe for her to swallow.
 
I don't want to be over protective of her because from the get go I always wanted to raise her to be an independent, street smart kid as she can be. Stuff like if somebody tries to hurt her, she's not going to shy away but instead she would stand up on her own... that if she'd find herself with a flat tire, she can change it by herself and not wait for somebody to help her... I want her to be brave and strong like Lara Croft vs Sleeping Beauty waiting for her prince to come and save her from her long slumber....


For that to happen, I gotta be more like Crush... who's not afraid to let go of his kids so they can learn their way through actual experience and be able to swim back to the EAC on their own...

I am still trying to find my way through this discombobulated world I am in called parenthood...

But I know that there will always be a Marlin in me... I'm sure there is one  in every parent in this world. The one who'd do whatever it takes to find and bring back his kid into his loving fins regardless how many sharks, how many strange creatures that come across his way, how many jelly fish stings he had to go through, no matter how far he had to swim... every parent brave their own treks to the "unknown" just to make sure their little one is safe and sound...

May God bless the hearts of all parents in the world trying to make things better for their kids...

Ok, Courage and Wisdom, please come visit the parent in me :)
