Clian: OK mom.
Mommy: The BEDroom is where you can see our bed ofcourse.

Mommy: Yes, beb?
Clian: We gather and have TV in the bedroom , what do you call it then?
Mommy: HMMMMM... Nasambit ko na lang: GREAT THINKING ANAK! :)
Life with  toddlers can be easier if you learn to see the world through their eyes.

How I made my Blog Button with a Grab Box

WoW!  I never thought that blogging could also be this challenging.  Well,  I am not so computer naive but to tell you , I am really having problems with HTMLs.  I envisioned blogging before as full-packed of writings and writings alone. But I think a lot of people made things so difficult for not so techie mom like me. Well, having a techie husband is really a plus. "Two heads are really better than one". When I have something technical about blogging , hubby comes to the rescue not unless  there are tutorials as easy as this that Morgan  offers on her website.
It's a good thing that I have dropped by her site when I am looking for tutorials on how to make my own blogbadge. She just made things so easy for new bloggers like me. You may wanna check on her as she has so many simple yet useful tutorials to offer and these are really based on her own experience. You can never be wrong if someone else experienced it already. Right? A site that is worth a referral. NO, no I am not being paid for this but YES I recommend this site to anyone interested.  I can say that this whole blogging world helped me practice good values like returning the favor even if not necessary specially if someone helped ME tremendously ( well I consider all HELP as TREMENDOUS). That's how I perceive help in any ways.  haha.
Yeah , that's the story of my own blog badge and its grab box. And I am wishing that I have done things just right.
Please check it out! And Oh you might want to grab it as well! Thanks in advance:)

Captured Thoughts

In our lives we always say that we regret some of the decisions we have made in the past. As the old saying goes: NO MAN IS AN ISLAND.
Most of the time , we based our decision and actions on those things that we  thought could give or put our lives in a better place. Or we learn from someone else experiences.
Most appreciated ones are opinions coming from family members, friends and peers. But what if you lack the courage to ask?.. Specially if  it is something that will humiliates you. Sometimes getting thoughts from someone else who does not know your personally are better because judgements are not bias. General and concrete.
Reason why I created Captured Thoughts.
 
Captured Thought is me capturing some of my thoughts  and questions about motherhood and life in general.
It would be a series of posts - MOSTLY QUESTIONS like WHAT IF YOU ARE ON MY SHOE,  how do you handle this thing?"
Or it can be  a PHRASE , POEM , something FAVORITE and how you perceive it.
Everybody's welcome to give thoughts and ideas.
There's nothing more fun than sharing and exchanging sudden thoughts. To give insights to others and gain substantial ideas from the readers.   It is an exchange of thoughts derived from a captured moment.
 
Hope you share your Captured Thoughts with me. 
 
 
You might not know that someone's life got better because of YOU.
 
 
I will be updating you soon ladies!

Grow A Garden - MY GOING GREEN in 2012 intiative

I am browsing my  mailbox when I stumbled upon my entry with  "GOING GREEN in 2012" contest. It is an initiative made by my company to join the campaign to be the “Greenest "BPO"  Site” in the Philippines. It is to be engaged in an all out war to reduce carbon footprint. 
 
What is the “carbon footprint”?

It is actually the amount of carbon dioxide and/or equivalent gases that we inadvertently create in our day-to-day activities.  As we all know carbon dioxide is called out as the main gas that is responsible for global warming so any initiative we undertake to contribute to reducing this cause goes a long way.  As the old adage says: “every little bit counts.”

There are a lot of practical ways we can contribute to this.   With that we were advised to send our entries on how we can contribute to “the cause” and how we can quantify the savings generated by that idea.

The winners stand the chance to win a personalized iPod Touch (each) to encourage everyone to be creative and innovative in making a positive impact to Mother Earth, but unfortunately, I did not win.sigh. Anyway , I still want to share this with you guys since I know , I deserve to win. LOL.. No , I am just kidding. Judges might have seen a better idea than this and I respect them for that.

Anyway , just sharing my idea here. And here is the entry.

Name: Joan Dare Estacio

Department: -------

Suggestion Concept
: Grow-A-Garden   (Organic Garden) >> kita nyo naman sa title pa lang ng entry ko , catchy na.

Rationale
: This will restore the environmental imbalance by eliminating the use of chemicals that accumulate toxic dosages.

Impact (Optional ): Grow-A-Garden
   is my idea on how we can reduce our carbon footprint .

This idea  may sound out of the topic but as you read through it, you will learn as to why I consider this as one of the best ideas for this specific campaign.

It has been an old initiative to conserve energy to lessen impact on our planet and there were  proven ways taken to cut this negative effect.  Some of us have taken heed by walking, biking, carpooling, combining trips, etc. just to make sure that we don't add up chemicals like dioxide and/or equivalent gases to the air. While we probably appreciate these efforts, still we need to do more and create more ideas. As the old saying goes, the more, the merrier.

So what about this Grow-A-Garden concept? Growing fruits and vegetables on your own backyard seems to be a hard thing to do. Yes it is. But considering the benefits of it, will make  you think that it's  worth a try. Aside from improving our environment and having our own source of flowers, fruit and vegetables, we often overlook the other benefits that gardening provides us. Other than :

1. health benefits:
When everything you need grows in your backyard,  vitamin content of fruits and vegetable are at their highest levels as you bite into them straight from the garden.

2. food quality  :
When you grow your own food, you don't have to worry about contamination that may occur during the process.

 3. cut expenses
: You can cut your expenses on groceries as your bill will shrink when you stock these fresh products produced from your garden.

4. It will also REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT:
  In a mere fact, it help saves the planet in many ways.  If you will grow your garden using organic method , it will  enhance soil structures, conserve water, mitigate climate change, and ensure sustained diversity among and within plant and animal species in an environment. This can be done by  eliminating the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and genetically modified organisms which we all know are chemicals that accumulates toxic dosages. This is not only an improvement for human health  but also for the variation of the different organisms found within a specified geographic region. Having that said, you’ll spare the earth the burden of unnecessary air and water pollution. Organic agriculture restores the environmental balance and has none of these or other such deleterious effects on the environment and these are perfectly safe for human consumption.

Did you see that?.. I even provided 4 sensible reasons as to why the idea is awesome. Now, you tell me.. isn't a great idea? 


Well, let me just tap my back for joining it. Better luck next time , Joan. hahaha.

Nutrition Month 2012

If you  have been following this blog, you'll know that it is our ( hubby and I )  first time to experience school activity because our eldest , Clian , is now in  K1.

In line with this , I would like to share  the first ever Nutrition Month we attended to. 
Last July 26 , 2012 Creston Academy celebrated Nutrition Month with the approved theme for the year 2012 "Pagkain ng gulay ugaliin, araw-araw itong ihain!" . 

It is indeed a good idea to incorporate the importance of vegetables and fruits on these kids' little mind. And for the mommies to make healthy choices by incorporating a colorful variety of fruits, vegetables into their kids' meal every day. As early as now kids should learn how to  stock up and eat  fresh fruits and vegetables as a much healthier choice. Good nutrition starts with healthful cooking.
cuties from NURSERY
Colorful cut out pictures of healthful food , vegetables and fruits were worn by these little cutie-pies . Representing which they think the best among the rest.  There's nothing that can stop the beat!  All parents are excited to see their little ones perform. Imagine , we have 2 year olds on the board, so much excitement to see these babies dancing on the floor.  
A good reminder made by Directress Cel  as  not to expect much of these toddlers as this is their first time to perform on  stage. To stay calm if tots just stand there and stare at the parent. And not to be mad if they go out of the beat. Well, ofcourse, what do you expect from tots?  A big crowd might frighten them.
Other activity includes: Art , dance and cooking contests. Grab a look for the pictures below. 
contestants for the COOKING partners

Here's Clian's performance!
K1 kids ( Ram , Clian , Kimmy and Anika)

getting ready for the final moment ( while the rest are waiting for the teacher's signal to start, Clian has another agenda to do ( pictorial time) )

Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun.
Won't you please shine down on me?

PROUD parent here!!!! From work diretso Creston Academy just to see our sweety's dance move!

Truly , school activities like this are of a treasure. We have to enjoy every moment that our kids passes through and we need to make sure that we are there no matter how hectic  our schedules are. Let's be happy of what they can do and limit our expectations as these are just babies on the moves.
How about you? Do you spend time with school activities like this? You can always share yours!!

A day in my not so boring life

Another time to get to know each other as we send out little scoop for the BC BLOGGER MEME: A day in my not so boring life – a 24 hr chronicle of your typical day.  
24 hours which seems not so enough for me to do all my task.
I am not sure if I can  say that my daily routine is boring.. but well yes, IT IS.. lol.. because maybe I cannot afford to miss any part of it. I have to follow it strictly or I'll run out of time and MY very little nap time will be sacrificed.  
Not a typical day that you would even want to have. Some may call me SUPER MOM because of this schedule. But thanks to my mom and hubby because I cant be this Super MOM with out them. Yes,  it is something VERY exhausting..well what schedule would you expect if you are a corporate lady like me  with 4 tots on the side? hahaha..  still everyday is the best day for me specially that I can  spend most of my DAY TIME  with my kids ( reason why I prefer  graveyard shift).  Let me share this very boring , tiring thing that I do RELIGIOUSLY everyday.
 I work on a call center ,  I wake up in the evening at 6 pm.. so I think that will start the day for me.  Let me start it backwards.
6 pm :                                        wake up time
6 pm - 7 pm :                           dinner time( i have to feed my 4 little kids)
7:00 pm - 7:15pm :                  bath time
7:15pm - 7:45 pm :                  get dressed
7:45pm - 9:15pm :                   travel time ( going to office)
9:15pm - 7:30am:                  work time ( 10 hours of sitting and talking over the phone)
 7:30am - 9:00am:                 travel time ( going home)
9:00am - 10:30am:               dvd time with the kids along with miryenda/snack time since  they eat their breakfast at 5:30 am
10:30am - 12:00 noon:         SLEEPING time with the kids!!! Yipee!!! 2 and a half hours of sleep
12:00noon - 12:45pm:           lunch time PLUS will prepare kids for school at 1:00 pm
12:45pm - 1:00pm:                travel time (going to school)


____BORING PART_____


1:00pm - 3:45pm:              my eldest is in K1 and twins are in daycare. We have to accompany them since all are in preschool. And that would mean  , we have to stay in school for few hours ( with few hours of sleep) just sitting and making some chicka moments with other mommies or nannies. hubby stays with Clian, my eldest. And I stay with the twins. ( Clian has a separate school with the twins. The youngest who's 1 year and 10 months will stay at home with my mom. Lucky me that I have my mom to fill those time and  things that I cannot do. 

3:45pm - 4:00pm:              travel time ( going home with the kids)
4:00pm -4:30pm:               Homework time along with miryenda time
4:30pm- 6:00pm:               SLEEPING time!!!! Another 1 and a half hour of sleep 2 and 1/2 PLUS 1 and 1/2 = 4  hours of sleep everyday 
6pm:                                     OH NO!! I have to  wake up again
I may hate the idea of having a corporate life along with these tots but so far, I cannot consider this work as something that I would hate about because this call center work that I have helps and take up  all the expenses that we have. 
See you later!
