Home Alone

I'm home alone with baby. I'm bored and sleepy but there seems to have lots of household chores to be done. Baby is asleep now so I found this moment to relax.

Hubby left early this morning. He and his officemates are going to Camotes to enjoy the weekend. I would really love to go but I can't leave baby behind or carry him along because he has not yet fully recovered.

My other two rascals are taking their vacation in Alcoy. I'm sure they are now enjoying the clear waters of Tingko Beach.

I've never traveled or had fun outing or going to a beach since I got pregnant, much more when baby came out! But it's really no big deal for me. I would always choose to be left home and take care of my kids.

Note on Mother's Day

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Bliss Living. All opinions are 100% mine.

We rarely celebrate Mother's Day when I was still a kid. Perhaps it was because my parents were not really conscious about occasions like that. We do have school projects like cards, beaded jewelry, and other crafts that we were supposed to give to our mothers on their special day but mine were mostly hidden on a box together with my other collections and were never personally given to my mother. However, I know Mama had seen them because she used to check my things and always had her way of finding things no matter how I tried to hide them. Guess what, she even reads my diary!

Now that I am a mother, I understand and feel the significance of Mother's Day and I share it with my children and hubby. Last year, my kids made a personalized greetings card for me. Tears fell from my eyes when I read their simple note inside a heart,

"Mama, thank you for taking care of us. We love you.

Angel and Warren"

And hubby … hhhmmmm. Well, I only received a simple "Happy Mother's Day" greeting and a kiss from him. I tried to convince myself that maybe he was just short of gift ideas or short of budget. Hopefully, this coming Mother's Day, he won't be stingy.

I found a really cute necklace from Bliss Living Jewelry and they are offering free shipping on all orders over $99! The three pendants are just perfect for my kids' names and I love it! Hope hubby would be generous this time and surprise me with his present.

Judgment Day - Fear Not

I’m a little bit nervous for baby’s second follow-up check-up to his pediatrician tomorrow. The doctor will decide whether baby will be re-admitted to the hospital. A week after hospital discharge, the phlegm came back and if it won’t be treated by the new antibiotic the doctor prescribed, baby will be admitted back to the hospital!

After hospital discharge on April 16th, we were advised to see the doctor for a follow-up check-up on the 20th but when we went to the doctor’s clinic she was not available because she attended a conference in Manila and another doctor took her place. Her secretary did not even mention that when we called the clinic the day before the schedule. Her replacement is not affiliated with our health insurance so we decided to go to the health provider’s clinic. The doctor advised us to continue the medication.

On April 25th, we went back to baby’s pediatrician. She gave us another antibiotic for his phlegm and advised us to come back on April 27th. If the doctor finds an abnormal activity on baby’s lungs, baby will be confined back to the hospital.

Hope everything will be fine tomorrow. I don’t want my baby to suffer again from the hands of those incompetent nurses!
