Super Busy Holidays

Hello everyone! My days have been very hectic since the day I arrived in the Philippines. It’s very odd that I had migraine for the last 3 days since I arrived and was practically asleep most of the time. I took advantage of the days that followed when I got better to visit family and meet up with friends. Unfortunately, time is not in my favor so I can’t meet all my relatives and friends. I just get tired easily and the traffic is terrible. Also, people are everywhere in the mall. It’s like half of Metro Manila are in the malls around Metro Manila! Of course, I’m just exaggerating but you get my point.

Well, I think my holiday will be one hectic vacation. I’m just glad that at least, I had time to visit my relatives in Bulacan even for a short while. I hope they enjoyed my visit too.

So, until next vacation break. I hope when that happens, I’m more healthy and don’t have bouts with migraine every time I have to go out. It’s just a bummer. Why can’t I be as healthy as other healthy people? Anyway, c’est la vie.

Lines and connections will be crazy few hours before the New Year’s celebration. So let me take this opportunity to greet everyone a Prosperous New Year!

 

God bless and may the ushering of the New Year bring so much joy, peace and love to all.

Back To School Shopping For Your Kids

Do you have kids that are eager beavers to go back to school?  Buying them school supplies can be daunting if you don’t know where to begin. Here are some tips for back to school shopping for kids while making sure that you stay within your budget.

Conversation starters

One thing a lot of parents worry about is the branding on clothing. at first I was against these, but after I bought a couple, I saw how much fun they had. They actually become the characters on these shirts. For back to school, they’re amazing, especially when kids are in a new school or new classes with new classmates. These will become a talking point. If they’re wearing one of these shirts, maybe another child will come up to them and say, “Hi, I play with those toys. My name is James.” and then they’ll connect with each other.

Find outfits that are going to work for them at school and play, indoor and outdoor and outfits that can stand the wear and tear of child’s play!

Involve your kids

Some kids would wear a Spiderman outfit every day if you let them.  Kids need to be involved because you actually need them to wear the clothes.

Give them some limited choices. For example, pick three shirt and ask which one they  would like the most, or their what are their favorite colors. Doing this will help make the morning go smooth.

If you have little girls who prefer to wear dresses, allow them to wear pretty dresses and some long socks or leggings too so they won’t get cold.

Invest in footwear

Footwear is a really good investment for your kids. You want to look for shoes that are offering really good support. If they’re indoor shoes, make sure that they’re not going to scuff the surface. Most parents are buying at least two pairs of shoes for their kids –  indoor shoes, outdoor shoes.

Buy wholesale notebooks, pens and pencils if you have more than one kid

If you have more than 1 kid going to school then it will be advisable to buy by the bulk as you get to save more and the kids can split the supplies. Look for coupon deals of offers at department stores or your wholesale retailer to save.

Buy bags that are sturdy and easy to carry

Trolley bags are great for smaller kids while back packs are big hits for older kids. Whatever you buy for them, ensure that they are sturdy and the stitchings are well stitched and not fraying.

Tech-Time Out – Facebook Like

More and more quality family time is being side-swept by the numerous social networks that everyone engage to. There is very little time for a “normal” chat at home where family members sit in the dining area and discuss how their day went or watch TV together as a family and simply enjoy their weekends as one.

The Tech Timeout challenge started by Foresters encourages families to take a daily break from technology. Participating families are encouraged to disconnect from all things electronic with the goal of helping spouses, parents and children build stronger bonds, communicate more personally and get more involved in each other’s lives. I think it’s time we all get in the game of bringing back “real quality” time, “real communication” with the ones we love and simply enjoy the comfort of live sans online social presence.

Click on the image below to know more about the Tech-Time out for families and like their Facebook page to show your support. Thanks!

 

Give time to your family. They deserve it. And kids, give time to your parents. Spend those quality time together.

Show Your Disney Side

I stumbled upon a cute site that makes stick figure family image which you can customize. I have always wanted to have stick figure family with our pet posted on our car but that’s not allowed here. So, I am glad to make one online and just post it in my social profile and save the photo too.

The site is called Build Your Disney Side and it’s also part of Disney. You can visit this link to make your own Disney family: http://buildyourdisneyside.com/

This is my family’s Disney side! Make one for your family too!
