a blog + a baby!

this photo was taken during our outing in Bataan just this summer

This photo depicts one of the happy (+ I intend to make more of  ’em) moments I shared with my son. He simple love the water (may this be in his bathtub, or the rain dripping down from our window pane, the splashing from his inflatable pool + finally the actual swimming pool + the sea) so I plan to bring him more often to pools (if my purse + weather permits) or the beach (if I can afford it!).

My son is what keeps my sanity in this otherwise insane world, he is what keeps me grounded + focused. He is my sanctuary during the times I am feeling sad + low + to my wit’s ends (trust me, there are plenty of those episodes!). He is also my source of never ending laughter + giggles + fun! I guess I have found me a fountain of youth! I don’t think I’d ever grow old when I am around him, his youth + vigor is simply infectious!

mr. google, the bearer of good news

Whilst I was excited to be back online after a few days of unintended hiatus, PMC mummies are raving about the current update from Google. Some mummies are so glad to finally have higher pr’s whilst some others were upset to see their pr going down. As for me, I never really imagined I’ll be getting a pr since I have loads of work to do with this blog + my baby’s blog  just recently transferred to WP + lost most of its links + connections so so much for dreaming of having a pr, right?

It was only when mummy Phoebe said she’s got pr1 on all of her blogs that I was inspired to check if ever there is an improvement to my pr’s perpetual 0 rate! +, oh boy, I was in for a surprise when upon checking a pr of 1 registered for this blog! Hurrah! Another good reason to be back! Woot!

Let us see how the improved pr rank will work its magic in this blog :)

tuesday travels: my favorite place to hang out

Our favorite place to hang out would have to be the mall. There are several SM Mall branches that we visit alternately: SM San Fernando in Pampanga, SM Baliuag + SM Marilao. We used to frequent the last branch but since traffic is just impossible going to that place, we sort of avoided it altogether + would just choose between the other two branches. Or sometimes, we’d venture even farther + visit Trinoma or SM North EDSA.

Jared + dad goofing around at the food court

The malls, I guess are shoe in, since you will just about find anything you might be needing in a single visit. Here’s what we’d normally have in our itinerary when we visit the mall:

  • do my groceries
  • buy Jared’s milk + diapers, wipes + laundry detergent
  • visit the bookstore (definitely one my most favorite shops :))
  • hunt for a place to eat (of course, this one is a staple in every itinerary!)
  • have a haircut on some occasions (+ when it’s Jared who needs a haircut, we’d go straight to Trinoma!)
  • do not forget to make a quickstop to ride the elevator (my little man loves it :D)

 Where is your favorite place to hang out? Do share it with us here:
