Sleepy Mom's Blog

A sleepy mom's activities in life and family.

As a busy person like me, there are many things to do, But i need to balance my time to give attention to all the things i need to do.

I need to manage my time, but how? Maybe i need to take down notes all the things that i needed to do, i think that will remind me.

Last September 21, 2010 that was my hubby's birthday, we just celebrated it with a movie date - we watched despicable me, then afterwards we just bought a cake. Cake is one of maki's favorite.

We have a lot of activities this coming October 2010. Hoping that i can attend on those activities. To enumerate those activities are the following; October 8 will be our family reunion in Mariveles Bataan, Our church anniversary this coming October 10 and of course my baby's 3rd birthday, whew! Those things that makes me busy this octorberfest...i love it!!!

Yesterday we went to church. At first, maki was so amaze when the children’s choir showed their presentation. I asked him if he want to be like them, maki said “yes mommy”. After the presentation they invited all the kids to go down to attend the Sunday school. So we went down to the play house. Maki was so tame, and he always beside me, I keep on asking him why you’re so very shy, why you don’t mingle with other kids. I just thought that was the first time that maki attended some sort of schooling. Maybe next week I will try that maki overcome those fear, shyness and everything.

Every night we have a story telling, I just ask first what happened to him the whole day, and then I will tell a story about our family, most often about maki. Now, I will include also about his schooling every Sunday, I think It will help him to realize what is the importance to be with other kid to socialize.

I just thinking what will happen tomorrow? Tomorrow is the birthday of my hubby, I keep practicing maki to sing happy birthday for his daddy. I am planning to cook some of his favorite food, like spaghetti, vegetable salad, some fish, cake (maki’s request). I hope it will happen despite that I am going to the office tomorrow. Daddy will spend his day with maki tomorrow because he is on leave from his work for two days.


For all working mommies, getting nannies are the best, to act as mommy when we are not around. Just like me, I need ate Lanie to take good care of my son maki, unfortunately she got fever last Wednesday. That was my big problem…the solution…I brought my son in the office. On the next day, ate Lanie still sick, so I needed to take a leave in the office to stay with my son in our house, at that day also maki have fever in the afternoon.

I hurriedly got the paracetamol, so that his fever will go down, imagine 38.9 was his temperature. We are about to bring him in his pedia…but my mom told me to just observe first his temperature.

Despite of having a fever, maki is still hyper.

I will take this opportunity also to thank maki’s pedia, because she is so accommodating. I just text her to inform her about the situation of maki, then she advice me to just continue give him a paracetamol and carbocistiene for his cough.

Hoping that this week maki will be ok so that we can bring him at the park again.
And maki needs more energy because we have a lot to do for these coming days. We have to attend reunion of our family, the anniversary of our church and we need to prepare for his 3rd birthday. But first, we need to celebrate our daddy’s birthday.

“The only permanent in life is change”; what a phrase! but it is very meaningful to me. There are a lot of changes that happen to me, one thing is now that I am writing like this, I never did this way, I am not fond on writing stories or anything especially about my life, but I hope it will be a big change to me and it will give me a new door to pursue and to experience.

But the story that I will write is not about me but instead about my younger brother. He is now a 2nd year college. Since he started studying, we felt so disappointed to him. When he was in elementary grade, he did not showed interest on his study, his grade was very low, despite those low grades, he graduated in elementary and hoping that in his high school days will change his performance, hoping that he will get high grades.

On his high school days, it seems that the way he studied in elementary was also happening on his high school. The grades also were very low, and there were times that he was saying to our mother, that he doesn’t like to go to school. We were on analyzing the situation; at that time he was sick because he experienced seizure, until we consulted the doctor. We all know that seizure will affect the brain of the person, he undergo on EEG, CT scan, and we asked also the doctor that is it possible because of the seizure that’s why he got low grades. Those experiences bother us, because for everybody education is very important. Despite of those trials he graduated in high school but the grades as usual. We also tried to get scholarship for him, because he needs to pursue his studies, because we are not rich to support his studies. But because his grades were not attractive that time, so he did not make it to get the scholarship.

As his elder sister, I talked to him, that we are going to support his study if he will study well and he will give us an average grade. Even my husband doesn’t like to support my brother’s study, but because of my eagerness and the promise that my brother that he is going to be a good student.

In his 1st year in college, he has remarkable grades; if in elementary and high school he got low grades in college is a big change, he never experience low grade. Last week he gave me his grades and when I saw it I was amaze because he got 1.25 on his major subject. I am so very thankful, that we give him another chance, and I hope he will continue to study well and have focus on what his doing.

Just like the changes in Goldilocks, our family also changes, if my brother will finish his studies maybe he’ll be the one to bring pasulubong to his niece and nephews. Right now I only bring pasalubong for my son and a little for my brother. Since the store of Goldilocks is very near in my office, so before I go home, I buy first “pasalubong”.
