A day without my baby

Hello, to all mommies out there especially to those working mommies like me. Can you still remember what it feels like on your first day of job after your maternity leave? Uneasy and worried, right?

You just want to rush back home and cuddle your sweet little angel and wish to spend the whole day playing, making sure she's fed when hungry, cleansed after poop, cuddled when she needs one, sleeps when tired and comfortable and happy as much as possible. Quality time is the best term for it.

As for me, as much as I wanted, I want to be there to witness all of Akeesha's first wonders. Her smile, giggle, word, roll, crawl, sit, stand, walk, run, everything!

A day without her is not a day at all. However, there are other responsibilities that I have to do apart from taking care of my precious baby.

Nah! Emo as you may call it, I don't care, I just want her to know that I love her so much even if I'm not with her the entire day. Everytime I go home, I end up finding her already sound asleep. We don't have anymore time for bonding. In turn, it makes me question my responsibilities for her.

Am I being a good mom? What do you think guys?

Buying The Right Pair of Running Shoes

Any typical runner picks a running shoes according to their personality and needs. They wish to have the perfect shoes, but the question is, how do they choose the right pair of running shoes? So I did a search on Google about guides of buying running shoes and I stumbled upon On their Running Shoes Buying Guide, I learned that there are considerations that must be observed before rushing to the store. Also that price and brand comes latter.

Primary consideration is to know the runner's foot type; neutral-arched foot, low-arched foot or high-arched foot. Next is finding the shoe type that suits to the foot type. Choices are stability, cushioned or motion control shoes. Learning the right type can lead to choosing the perfect brand and model that is suitable to the runner needs.

Now surely, purchasing the right shoes won't be disappointing anymore because with a good pair of running shoes on, a runner can go everywhere.

♥ Moving in ♥

We recently moved in to my in-laws' house by request. Having to undergo adjustments and leaving the things and people I used to be with, was never a situation which I can just easily do and move on. But the fact that I'm in the said situation, there's no use crying over it and go back, though how painful and at the same time tempting it can be.

The things I used to despise are now haunting me and surprisingly, I miss them. My mother's big mouth, stubbornness, and constant visit to our room just to check on Akeesha which at times really annoys me a lot and Bridgette's nuisance, disturbance and funny but sometimes annoying ways are the most things I miss.

Ain't really sure if I should be happy or not but what I'm so sure about is that I miss them but it's time to move on and try on different kind of environment and company.

♥ Fear of Friday the 13th ♥


Fear of the Friday the 13th is called "paraskavedekatriaphobia". Find it hard to pronounce, then just say I have a "Fear of the Friday the 13th". LOL

I don't have this disorder but I guess I have a bit fear of the number 13, so I am triskaidekaphobic. Not really sure when or how it started, I just don't like it at all, period.

A few facts about Friday-the-13th:

1. Tall buildings doesn't have 13 floors, they always skip from 12 to 14. Hmmm
2. Hospitals has no Room 13
3. Airline Terminals have no Gate 13
4. President Franklin Roosevelt would not travel on the 13th day of any month and would never host 13 guests at a meal.
5. The number 13 suffers from its position after 12, according to numerologists who consider the latter to be a complete number - 12 months in a year, 12 signs of the zodiac, 12 gods of Olympus, 12 labors of Hercules, 12 tribes of Israel, 12 apostles of Jesus, 12 days of Christmas and 12 eggs in a dozen.

Today is March 13, 2009, are you afraid of it?

♥ Akeesha's First Time on the Pool ♥

Last March 8, 2009 at Felis Resort was Akeesha's first time to swim on the pool. Yes, my dear friends, you read it right. We got all eyes watching on us once we dipped her to the water made by her loud cries.
There were moments that she enjoyed it but most of the time, she was crying. At least, not bad for a first timer. I love you Akeesha.

Hoping this experience changes her mood everytime we run a bath on her.
