List of Thoughts

My toddler’s tantrums remind me that I am raising a human being, not an angel. Developing, struggling, changing… they happen to kids at such an amazing rate! It’s on us to help them, forgive them, for they are feeling all sorts of — literally — new things: and even their response to the new feelings […]

I think I broke a record.

Yeap. This has to be the longest time I’ve abandoned this blog, am I right? Where do I even begin? Excuses (though unnecessary): I’ve just been super lazy, my free time’s been filled with mindless surfing, Facebooking, YM-ing — anything but blogging. But, it’s the third last day of the winter holidays… and if I […]
