Do You Want To Be A Hands-On Parent while Earning?

Before I became a SAHM (stay at home mom), for 8 years I was working as a Specialist in one of the country's largest telecommunications company. After much consideration, my husband and I decided that it's about time for me to stay home and take care of our family six months after I gave birth to our son. It's now been 3 years since I resigned and although it's a lot of hard work, I am cherishing every second of it. The time I spend with our son, the things I do at home taking care of my husband and baby is really something that I could not compare with anything right now. I have seen all of my son's milestones and took lots of pictures and videos of it, too. I have prepared home-cooked meals when he started eating solid food. I am still breastfeeding him until now (he's three years and seven months), I have brought him to his very first school, I taught him how to read, count and write, I have always been there in all of his activities. Everything. It's such a wonderful feeling. 


How's Your Summer?

Hey there, everyone! How's life going on? It's been a while since I last posted. Summer has been hectic for me. For me and my little prince, actually. 

We've been school hunting since before the summer started and we've enrolled our son in a preschool summer class last April. It lasted for a month. They just celebrated their Commencement Exercise yesterday and it was so much fun! Trev and his classmates were so cute in their dance number. 

I really like the school where we enrolled him for his summer class. Aside from academics, they also focus on the kids' talents so the school also offers music, sports, and the like. It's actually a multiple - intelligence school. If we have enough budget, we might have probably enrolled him in a music class, too. Guitar lessons perhaps. I am not sure but we might need to buy him a guitar like the sg guitars for that. And since we have limited budget because it's enrollment time once again, we would have to forego that plan for the time being. Anyway, there's always a next time. :-)

Oh, did I mention that while Trev was enrolled there, he was also attending a montessori summer class? Right, we were really busy the other week. Good thing that his montessori summer class was only for a week so it wasn't much of a conflict. Besides, my son loved the activities and he had lots of fun. The montessori summer class is in preparation for the coming school year. Yes, we're strongly considering that school, too.

I will be sharing with you about what happened during his summer class in the coming posts. I am really sorry for the lack of regular posts lately. I hope makabawi next time.
