Today, we got a bad news, after all the time, effort and we spent for my brother-in-law to be able to work abroad with Dane at the same company, he got a text message from the agency informing him that he didn’t make it to the final selection. We are shocked and devastated, I was so upset earlier that I called the agency to clarify what happened. Yeah, unfortunately, he didn’t make it, many others in his batch already have their passports so they were prioritized and the slots were filled.
So, yeah, we don’t know why God allowed for this to happen but We trust that He has a plan so we will continue to submit everything to Him. We may think that our plan is good but He’s got something that’s so much better. So we stick to the bright side – at least when he applies again, he now has his passport ready.
June 21 – Belo Baby Products arrived!
I was so excited to try out the Belo Baby Products and finally, they’re here! Didn’t waste time in joining the giveaway when I saw them via Frances of Topaz Horizon’s post. Looks like, the odds were on Nate and I’s favor because we were one of the 3 winners announced earlier this month. We got the body soap, hand and body lotion and hand and body wash. Yaaay!
June 22 – More sleep time for Mama!
Today, I had more sleep time and I’m so happy. This is not my usual sleep routine. Nate and I woke up at around 10 AM (he’s a night guy because of my job, he doesn’t sleep ’til dawn around 1 or 2 AM), then we ate, took a bath, chat with his papa (just recorded messages, not a video call this time), then we did a little writing and some letter activities, read books, then we both got sleepy, because of the weather, we slept around 3 PM and just woke up now (6:20 PM). This is supposed to be my sleep time ’til 8:30 PM since I work at 9PM. Now, I’m not sure if I can still go back to sleep! haha. Thanks for allowing me to rest more, son.
|Simple toddler activities today: Reading, drawing and lettering pasting. BONUS: incy wincy spider on the wall. lol
June 23 – “Less” sleep time for Mama!
Well, kung ga’no kahaba ang tinulog ko kahapon, ganun naman ka igsi ang pahinga ko ngayon. Nate and I were lying down, ready to rest when he wouldn’t stop asking for my milk, he’s using it as a pacifier again. He loves doing that while he’s sleeping. But the problem is, I couldn’t position and rest well with him suckling on my milk all the time!
So at first I politely told him to stop asking for my dede and just sleep. At first he compiled but he was so irritated, he started moving around the bed, grumpy and slapping the pillows. I tried to explain, he wouldn’t listen. I lost my temper and I raised my voice. 🙁 I was filled with pressure since I only had less than 2 hours to sleep before going to work. I scolded him. He was crying and I didn’t care. As I write this, I really felt so bad about what happened. I hate myself for loosing my patience. 🙁 Thankfully, he’s ok now. :(((
June 24 – TGIF!
Thank God, it’s Fridaaaay!!!! Finally, I more shift and I can sleep with my Nate at night again. 🙂 Can you believe June’s almost done too? Wow! Amazing how time flies, really! So here’s my funny self, dancing? if this is considered dancing, haha, feeling excited for July to come. 🙂
Earlier today, we went to a store that sells shakes, kwek-kwek and fries. It was a hot afternoon, so we looked for something to eat. I was with Nate and my mother-in-law. By the time we were about to go home, guess what – I RAINED HARD! haha. I had to run back home to get an umbrella for Nate and my mother-in-law. We came unprepared so I had to think fast and run quickly back home (which is about 250 mts away). In the mean time, Nate and his lola were at the store waiting for me to come back. Well that was completely unexpected.
That’s life, it gives us so many surprises, most of the time, we are unprepared and we don’t know what to do sometimes, but if we stay calm and focus, we’ll be able to decide on what to do best. No matter what you’re going through right now, if you have a problem, just stay focused and do what you think you should do best to overcome the problem.
There’s a rainbow after a storm! 🙂 God bless us all! Have a great weekend with family and love ones! 🙂
