11 Things Sophia Said

My firstborn is quite a chatter. I really wonder where she got it from! Haha, fine, my genes must have something to do with it. In fact, when she was a baby, not even turning a year old yet, she can copy whatever I or her father say. It was the cutest! But now that she's a pre-teen who actually has a reaction to anything that's happening around her, it can be pretty annoying. So yeah, cute isn't exactly a good word to describe it.

But of course, it also means that her responses can be funny just like when she started talking non-stop. And for her 11th birthday, here are 11 memorable things Sophia said.

Caring for Your Baby Efficiently With Timeflys Baby Monitor

When I was a first time mom to my now 5th grader Sophia, my mother helped me with my brand new responsibility of caring for a little human. But for the second time as I gave birth to Samantha two years ago, who's now a chunky toddler, I was mostly on my own. And guys, just like most moms who breastfeed their babies, I didn't have enough sleep, we were literally together 24/7. While I love my rainbow baby very much, I cried deep inside when I wanted to just poop, err have coffee, in peace. Well, Sammybear was and is still an easy baby. It was just that I can't leave her in the room on her own in the fear of her falling from the bed (she didn't like sleeping on the crib) or worst, SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). Guys, I survived it all. We're alive and that's what matters. But had I known there are products that can make parenting a bit easier, I shouldn't have sold my soul to online shopping sites just to stay sane lol.

And what exactly is this? Omg moms, it's a baby freaking monitor from Timeflys! So what does it do? You can read more about it on Celerhina Aubrey's and K Figuracion's blogs here and here. But here's a quick rundown of its features that my friends from Timeflys shared with me

35 today

Well, well, well. What do we have here?

But first, lemme take a selfie.

When I was 10 years old, I looked at people my age now like they're so old. Like when they don't have their own house, don't drive their own car and have zero career, I thought that they are failures. The younger me even swore to never wash my own laundry! I said I'd have maids to do the house chores. I said I'd be wearing stilettos to work. I said my future children would have their own bedrooms at my house with a beautiful garden. Such dreams I had as a child. God bless every kid who dreams like I did. 'Cause guess what? None of those came true.
