Daddy: More Than Just A Provider, But, More Importantly, A Father

Today we salute all the hardworking fathers who make life easier and more meaningful. It is never easy being a dad and they are so much more than just the heads of our family, they are also our protector, confidante, biggest fan, and provider, they are also our very first superhero, and in the eyes of my little man, his very first Marvel Avenger ~ even way cooler than IronMan and Captain America! ^_^

A father’s job never gets done. Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all.

But every head of the family doesn’t mind. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires. Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on today, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives.

Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us.

As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.

All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs.

Has tatay been constantly complaining about losing strands and strands of his hair every day? Or maybe has he been searching for a way on how to get them to grow back?

According to the hair loss statistics conducted by Statistic Brain in the year 2016, 40 percent of men experience noticeable mane vanishing as early as age 35. And as per the American Hair Loss Association, there are a couple of different factors that cause excessive hair fall, one being extreme degree of stress.

Hello December!

Greetings, DecemberWow, I cannot believe November flew by that quickly and we are now welcoming December. I am sure Jared will be delighted to know that we only have 24 days before Christmas. He has been excitedly doing the countdown since he saw in on the telly and was always looking forward each night to find out how many more days he still has to wait until Christmas arrives!

Greetings, December

November was a pretty busy month but lucky were were able to find time to set up the Christmas tree a few weeks before the December rush ushered in. My little one was all too eager to help hang those shiny Christmas balls and I let him finish the task. I thought he did a great job as I just had to do minor adjustments making sure there is plenty of space between the similar-colored balls. I got some lovely ribbons to spruce up the tree this year, too and as usual, we hung a bunch of the little man’s little plushy toys, and  we have some additions this year, including pretty Gigi and the brown bear keychain gifted to Jared by his ninang Niz. Aren’t they the cutest?  😉

December will prove to be a busy month. There will be a bunch of gatherings to attend, starting with the Mommy Blogger Philippines’ party on Friday and the little schooler’s Christmas party in class. Apart from wrapping gifts and preparing for Noche Buena, there are also loads of chores that needs to be done before Christmas, including washing the curtains and the sofa covers, giving Jared’s stuffed playmates a bath. We also need to tidy up the little one’s toys and books and segregate those that we will be sharing with the local food chain’s toy drive. I hope to get a bunch of these stuff done this week so wish me all the luck, right? 😉
