Kids Should Spend Time with God

Posted by Laureen at Friday, January 28, 2011 2 comments

Two weeks ago we had our family devotion and our topic was about the fast pace world. It says there that the first thing we must to is to list down the must do, should do, and can do. I asked God for wisdom on how to explain this things to my son, Z's level since he is just 4 years old.

So, I asked Z , " When you wake up in the morning what must you do? Must do are the things you can't compromise." Then, he answered "pray." I asked " How about the should do?" He answered "Watching cartoons on DVD." Then I asked again " Is watching cartoons important?" So, he quickly answered "should do is "study." Then I asked "How about the things we can do?" "watching cartoons on DVD' quickly came his reply.

After that topic for our devotion, now Z knows what to do when he wakes up in the morning. Lately, he has been reading his own bible. I was praying to buy a bible for him that he could read it himself. Thank God! I found one at National Book Store which was in fact so cheap, it only cost P165.00. It is entitled "My first Bible Treasury" and Z likes the pictures on it too. It contains basic essential bible history and includes stories: Adam and Eve, God the beginning, Samson and Delilah, Noah's Ark, Jesus, Salvation, interesting facts, prayers, etc.

Now, when he wakes up instead of begging me to watch cartoons since his classes is in the afternoon. He now ask, "Mom May, can I read now my bible?" He reads his bible in the morning and before bed time.

For that it made me a happy Mom.Hope his eagerness to learn more about God will continue forever even when I'm gone.

A Trip to Camiguin Island

Posted by Laureen at Monday, January 24, 2011 5 comments
I had a wonderful opportunity to visit Camiguin Island last month, with my family,and my in-laws. It was very tiring but the experience was worth it. Here are the places we visited in Camiguin.

The sand was indeed white but we got frustrated when we can not make a perfect sand castle for the sand was not that fine. It looks like ground sea shells. We enjoyed the kite flying. The other kids wished they brought along their kites too...There were others who dared to asked where we bought our kites.

We enjoyed swimming and just enjoying the scenery of the surrounding mountains. There was even a mountain in front of us that is shaped like a lady lying down. The thought of being in the island itself is so amazing.

The best! The experience was truly relaxing. They said the hot spring is therapeutic. As a stay at home mom, filled with lots of household chores, I would definitely recommend this place. It's very nice to be in this place once in a while, giving yourself a nice break.

I can't forget this place since I almost drowned here. I slipped and fell from my rubber tube. They have a pool for children and adult. The adult pool is so deep, so if you don't know how to swim better take the kids pool. It is not safe to swim without a life vest or you need to rent from them a rubber tube. It is refreshing for others but for me it gave me muscle pains after the swim for the water was icy cold.

The place is so unique and you will be stunned by the creativity of the artists. It's a great place to visit especially for people who do appreciate artworks.

I was thankful to God for letting us spend time with the family and the opportunity to witness His wonderful creation.

Babies and Diaper Rash

Posted by Laureen at Wednesday, January 19, 2011 1 comments

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

As a mom, we don’t want our babies to experience diaper rash. But no matter how much we pamper their skin or how often we change diapers; we still end up dealing with diaper rash and skin irritations.

Some of my friends deal with diaper rash by giving their babies a nice warm bath. Once the baby is dry, they put some baby powder on the skin and gently rub it in before placing the diaper back on. This is quiet effective but some kids are just prone to diaper rash than others and they need a specialized cream to be placed on their thighs and buttocks especially when it already red and swollen.

One of the best creams that is now very popular among moms in the US is the Boudreaux's Butt Paste. This is a specialized cream specially formulated by pharmacist to provide effective diaper rash care. It contains 16% oxide and it is known to be safe for our babies because it is recommended by a Pediatrician. This product is available in convenient sizes, it has a pleasant smell and it protects the skin of your babies. Also, Boudreaux Butt Paste has been featured in many US shows like Ophra Winfrey Show, Tonight Show, Today Show and many others.

How Do I Look?

Posted by Laureen at Monday, January 17, 2011 0 comments
When I am dressing up, I usually ask my son if I look okay with my clothes. He would stare at me and would say that I am beautiful. Sometimes he would give a comment like… Your beautiful mom but you’re fat!” Oh, that hurts, but it’s true. Sometimes I jokingly tell him that I was hurt by his comment but he smiles and told me its okay because I look pretty. (LOL) It’s now very hard for me to lose weight especially now that I don’t have thyroid glands anymore. Even though I don’t eat a lot, still I feel like I’m getting bigger everyday.

Some of my friends told me that I lose weight. But the way I look at myself it is still the same. I guess nothing has changed. I want to lose weight so I can wear clothes like wolford leggings, body hugging blouses and many others. But I guess I still have to wait a little bit more and I know I can wear them in due time. But if I don’t lose weight, then I would happily accept it. After all real beauty can’t be truly measured by just your looks. It comes from within. What is important is that you are happy with yourself and in the way you look at yourself.

On Valentine's Day

Posted by Laureen at Monday, January 17, 2011 0 comments
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, many people think about love, finding a date, and being nice to a spouse. Some would think about giving Gift or Present ideas like Valentine’s Day cards, chocolates, flowers, surprises and many other things that will make someone feel special.

When I was still in high school, most of my guy friends love to give flowers and chocolates. But I don’t like receiving flowers and chocolates from them so I gave it to my classmates. They were the ones who enjoyed the gifts. When I my husband (who was my boyfriend then) gave me a cute stuff toy, I appreciated it a lot. It looks so cute and until I can’t still forget his gift.

Now that I am married and have two kids, I am planning about giving a special gift to my husband. I won’t go for expensive stuff but I make it sure that he will like it. But above all these gifts and presents, I will dedicate this day to remember God’s greatest love. As the world celebrates Valentine’s Day, I will also celebrate this day by showing God’s love to other people.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave is one and only son, that whosoever would believe in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.”

If you think, nobody loves you and cares for you… God loves you so much and He can be your date on Valentine’s Day.

Going Back to Thailand

Posted by Laureen at Monday, January 17, 2011 0 comments
My sister is inviting me once again to their place because they will be conducting another English workshop for the pre-school kids. I’m quite excited about it but I’m a bit hesitant because I feel like I don’t have the resources of going there. But if God will provide for my fare, then it won’t be a problem anymore.

One of the things that excite me in going there is the opportunity of being a blessing to the little Thai kids. While teaching English to little kids, I also had the opportunity to learn Thai as well. I enjoyed talking and playing with the kids even though there were times that we can’t understand each other.

Another thing that I love in Thailand was to buy Sterling silver jewelries for my business. I have been selling silver jewelries for years now and most of my customers loved it. This is because Thai silver jewelries are more intricate when it comes to their design. Most teenagers like love heart necklaces, toe rings and elephant earrings. The mothers like dangling earrings and charm bracelets.

Lastly, I love to go back to Thailand because I want to bond with my sister and her family. We rarely see each other and going back to their place would be a great opportunity for us to be with each other and update ourselves with lots of stories.

Oh, writing about this makes me want to go back to Thailand and visit my sister. But I am still praying for this and allow God to move in His mysterious ways.

Can I Go to School?

Posted by Laureen at Monday, January 17, 2011 0 comments
My son Zboy is now in Kinder 2 and everyday he goes to school. My little girl who is now 2 years old is always wondering why she can't go to school like his brother. Every time his brother wears his uniform, she will immediately get her bag and ask me if she can go to school too. I told her she can't go to school yet because she's still a baby. Because I said no, she will cry. That is why I bring her to school once in a while during our activity day.When she's in school, she really feels she's a student. She greets the teachers, sits properly and listens attentively. She looks so cute while acting like a little student.

If you ask me if I will send her to school next year... not yet! She's still so young and I wanted her to enjoy being a child yet. When she's already 4 years old, that's the time I will enroll her to a pre-school class.

Full-Time Blogger

Posted by Laureen at Friday, January 14, 2011 0 comments
I don’t write posts more often these days because I don’t have much time to blog anymore. I am now working full time and when I am at home I am busy with the kids and doing household chores. Good thing, I can update this blog once in a while I am not too busy.

I envy my sister and cousins because they now have so many blogs and are earning big cash from it. They are indeed full-time bloggers. I wish I am like them too. They update their blogs more often and most of them bought domain names for it. Some of their blogs are self hosted and I am sure they have read web hosting pad and web hosting reviews before having their blogs hosted. I don’t know much about this, but all I know is that it enables them to make a lot of money from their blogs.

I am still on the process of learning all these stuff. When I have more time to blog, I will also consider buying a domain name for this blog and have it self- hosted. For the mean time, I will just have to update this blog once in a while and hopefully I will consider myself to be a full-time blogger probably in the next few months.

We will be travelling to my mother in law's house in Butuan this coming Friday. Hubby's aunt died and she is one of the family's closest relative. The kids are now ready for the trip and they are now excited to meet their grandmother. The kids rarely see their grandma and I hope they will have a great time bonding with her.
