10 Signs Your Toddler Rules The House

I recently told my friends that I quit on tidying up our house.I cannot do it anymore. I quit. I know they say that let our kids be little…so I am letting Ellie be. For parents who got toddlers… I know that deep in your hearts you sincerely understand and you’re slowly nodding your head because you know…you know… what made me quit – tidying up.

Ellie owns the house – the car and even our bed. She rules the house and we are not complaining.

IMG_95081)Her stuff are everywhere.  Currently our little one owns more or less 10 stuff animals –  majority are bears and they are not small bears, one giant unicorn, tons of balls plus a play tent. Plus the tiny trinkets that she considers as treasures like keychains, keys and pens etc. and there’s no place inside our house and car even, that you cannot find a trace of her. It’s like she’s leaving them… to mark her territory.

2)You cannot finish ONE task easily. She knows what she wants and sometimes she wants what you want. I was doing the laundry the other day and Ellie joined me by putting out the clothes out of the hamper and brought them to our living room. I was dusting the shelves inside our room and she helped me by throwing out the books on the floor.

3)Food everywhere. Biscuits on the sofa. Rice on the bed.Juice spills on the floor and the list goes on.

4)One of the corners of the house is an extension of a play area. It’s Ellie’s corner. I imagined her going there to play and read her books, solve puzzles and other toddler activities. Now, I know that it’s all in my head… so much for my imagination…refer to item number 1.

5) Remember when you have glass and ceramic stuff at home? They are now PLASTIC. We bought colourful  utensils and glasses and even plates for her. Safety first.

6) Your TV channel preferences switched from News to Kids channel. Just like how you’re reading rhymes and storybooks when by heart you love novels and newspapers and fashion magazines!

7) The corners are no longer there. Again, another safety precaution. Toddlers love to run around  and defy the laws of physics and other laws of the universe.

8) The top shelves are full. There are times when we want everything on display – vases, picture frames, we even opt for a clock table instead of regular one. Now everything fragile,shiny and nice to look at, are all placed way up the cupboards or hidden somewhere little-miss-I-want-to-play-with-it cannot see.

9) Prints and writings everywhere. There’s no need for me to elaborate on this. I know that it is sometimes funny to see her prints in places we didn’t expect but what should we do… she is a toddler.

10)Adults in the house are either ninjas or prone to mini-heart attacks. Ellie started to jump from the sofa and our hearts jump with her too. She learned how to snatch the glass from the table –  with our hearts attached to it as well. She acts as if she is going to fall from the bed and I know she will fall from the bed that’s when my inner ninja comes out. Adults begin to have great reflexes at home.

But hey, after all the mess and mini heart-attacks, our house is filled with joy and laughter every single day. And sooner or later we will be missing these crazy moments with them.

What are your toddlers up to and how are you coping? :)

[MrsTags reviews] Pockit Stroller

We don’t want to spoil Ellie when it comes to material things but we don’t want to sacrifice – quality, convenience and comfort that some material things offer. Recently we were in search for a compact, easy to expand and adjust stroller for her. The stroller that we got her makes her uncomfortable because the heat gets trapped on the pads making her sweaty and irritated most of the time. Don’t get me wrong we LOVE that Hauck stroller very much and it is with us even before she’s born.

My first choice is the Juniors Scooty Baby Buggy  I found in Babyshop. The price is very affordable at AED 149. This buggy systems has 5 point Harness system. It is also Compact and lightweight for storage  and features an umbrella style easy-to-fold system.  I love the price but I had a hard time adjusting and expanding it and it is still bulky – my husband wants a space-saving stroller this time.

We also looked at Maclaren, Chicco,  and Joie travel systems – these brands offers different options – some of the models are not as lightweight as I expected. The price ranges from AED 200 – AED 1600. Then my husband found the GB Pockit Stroller and that’s the end of the story.

The FOLDED GB Pockit Stroller

True to it’s description – lightweight folding champion! All we have to do is to just click on the buttons located on the handle and we can easily fold the whole thing and what amazes me is the size after it is folded.  In only two steps the buggy becomes a compact and feather-light handbag-shaped package –   30 x 18 x 35 cm to be precise.  Tags loved it and I know my husband when he wants something – he’ll test it and inspect all of the details and will even do online research about it. We found out that it has won awards and it won our approval too! If you’re interested you can check out Babyshop for this great find or you can visit online shops like mumzworld. I made several transactions with them before and everything went smoothly – from ordering to delivery.

When it comes to our kids safety we always do our own research (like what my husband did!) to check reviews and product ratings too. I checked one post from MomStrollerReviews.com : Mom’s Picks: Top 20 Best Strollers for 2017. It is a good read since the author of the post concentrates on practicality a little more than style. :)

What stroller are you using? What are the special feature that you like about it?

#MomGoals

Motherhood – changes your perspective in general – your taste in food, music, color and even the TV programs that your binging on every weekend (that is..if you have time). Your Pinterest boards changed from Fashion to Kids and Parenting. Family becomes the vital part of motherhood. More often than not, mothers tend to prioritize family over themselves. So for today I want to share my list of #MomGoals that I wrote. To each her own. Goal setting can be a helpful, exciting, and a reinvigorating practice for mothers like us and women in general. :)

#MomGoals for Health and Beauty

Manatiling maganda sa kabila ng lahat.

  • Eat healthy – watch what you eat and be wary of what it will do to your body.
  • Exercise even when you’re at home. You don’t have to be inside a gym to work -out, there are tons of exercises that we can always follow online.
  • Take care of your skin, nails and hair. Treat yourself with creams, lotions and vitamins even essential oils that are good for our body. The good thing about essential oils is that it is usually cost-effective and the results are amazing.
  • Be your best fresh self.
  • Smile and be positive.

#MomGoals for Career and Self-Development

  • Read. There are lots of benefits when you develop the habit of reading. One of the advantages is, it increases our vocabulary and makes us a lot more articulate. PLUS: It melts away stress.
  • Write a blog – like this. Write for yourself – the audience will come sooner or later. From time to time we need to look for a way to express ourselves I know other moms who paint or compose songs or cook and bake as a way of self expression.
  • Try something new – whether a new restaurant, movie genre, recipe or even a fashion trend. Trying something new makes you know yourself more and it helps you widen the range of your choices too.
  • Learn something technical.This one… is in my bucket list – and I am proud to say that I learned and I am still putting it into practice. :) Not because you already have a family to tend to means you’re no longer allowed to learn things.

#MomGoals Family and Relationships

  • Break that techie habit. Hurray! I am (we) on it. Since we are doing our best to limit Ellie’s exposure and use of gadgets ,we also limit ourselves in using gadgets whenever we are at home or with family.
  • Say I LOVE YOU. Expressing love and care to our family members is a must. It exudes positive vibes at home and nourish relationships 100% of the time :)
  • Cook and/or bake for them.
  • Family time = quality time. Don’t go out for dinners or arcade time just for the sake of having one. Make sure that we are giving a quality bonding with them.
  • Find a good family activity that everyone will enjoy. :)

Reading my thoughts here are very easy – doing and incorporating these with our daily routine is a different story. Although we are setting goals that we want to accomplish – dedication and focus is needed 100% of the time. The challenge is how are we going to overcome the hurdles that might get in our way to do it.

What are your #MomGoals?
