Project 1982

I ran over a good blog topic from . It was about making photo history of the day you were born.
I tried searching our friendly neighbor google of the events that took place on my birthday. That was June 20, 1982 (Yes, that makes me 28 years old now). Here’s what I found out.

Facts from Wikipedia:
1. I was born when The Argentine base (Corbeta Uruguay) on Southern Thule surrenders to Royal Marine commandos in the final action of the Falklands War.
2. I was born together with Aleksei Berezutski and Vasili Berezutski, Russian footballer ( maybe they’re twins. Hehehe…) , George Forsyth, Peruvian footballer, and Example (rapper), British rapper
3. We celebrate Argentina’s Day of the National Flag, International Surfing Day, Earliest Date for the Summer Solstice, West Virginia Day, and World Refugee Day..

Well, not much happened on my birthday for others but it sure is one great day for my parents. :D

Grocery Day

mommy moments

One of our favorite thing to do as a family is to buy groceries. We do our major grocery shopping twice a month, mostly to buy Jacob's things like diapers, milk, baby wipes, soap and shampoo, etc. We always bring jacob with us and he loves to grab everything his hands gets to... hehehe... Wait till he gets older and he'll be pointing at every candy and chocolates in there. Here's one photo i captured of Jacob when we were doing the grocery.

Jacob had his first ride on a mini carousel in Storyland SM Fairview last sunday, July 11, 2010. He enjoyed his ride but mommy was dizzy walking along side the carousel. We should have ridden the big carousel instead. hehehe... Jacob loved that horse. :D

Great to be out with Great Friends

It was a night out with friends and it feels really great. I've never been out with them since Jacob was born so it feels good to be with them again. We watched my friend's show in Mag:Net in Katipunan, the Las Bungangeras. I had a great time. Also seeing Noel Cabangon perform after them is a bonus of the night.

Jacob at Kindermusik with Teacher Suzette

Jacob attended first very first Kindermusik class last June 26 with Teacher Suzette. He really enjoys the dancing and the singing and he is on his way to learning packing away. :D This semester is all about transportation which I think is very appropriate for little boys like him.

Separation anxiety sets in

When Jacob was younger, I always condition him that every morning mommy needs to go to work and will be back later. Before I go I always tell him that I love him and I’ll see him later. Of course at first, he wouldn’t cry and he will just look at me and smile. But this morning when I saw him cry because I was leaving, it makes me want to stay at home.

Being a working mom, every morning I feel really bad leaving Jacob at home. Thinking that he is spending more time without me than with me. Makes me think who between us have separation anxiety?? Is it mommy or Jacob. :)

Here are tips on dealing with separation anxiety I found in

Tips on dealing with separation anxiety

Conditioning is a good technique to (try) practice to counter separation anxiety. You may try these conditioning strategies:
• Rehearse your leave-taking for brief periods, then gradually increase the time intervals whenever you think your baby is ready to not see you for a longer time
• Allow her some time to acclimatize first or “grow into” the caregiver you are leaving him with. Try not to leave her in the hands of someone she considers a stranger.
• If you are leaving your in a place outside your home, try bringing him to the new place a certain number of times beforehand if possible, so that he becomes accustomed to the new faces and to the new place before he is to be left there without mom or dad
• Try storytelling and storyreading as a means by which to acclimatize your child to situations and places where he may feel that she is “on her own” . For example, stories about the first day in school or stories about finding your way in the playground can be very helpful.
