Wrap that baby!

When the boys were babies, diaper changing would always be challenging. Most especially when they were around 4-5 months when they began to learn how to turn over. Every now and then, diaper changes turned really messy.

But I guess new parents have a choice now. Check out what I got in my inbox today!

My Pinoy mind tells me “aw….cute….but kawawa naman yung baby!” Hahahaha! I’m sure all other (2 pax?) Pinoy moms out there who read this blog (Hi Mom, Hi Can!) can understand what I mean.

It’s a Start…

We attended a wedding of a cousin and brought the boys a few weeks ago and dinner was done Chinese style — a lauriat.   This means that there were several courses (10 or 11!) from appetizers (cold cuts) all the way to dessert.

To make sure P eats (he can be picky), I checked out the menu they left on the table to know what was going to be served. Then I told him what to expect for dinner.
