Memorial Day Weekend marks the start of summer which means lots of family travel in the next coming months. I wanted to re-share with you one of our memorable trips that we made last year to Hershey Park. Hershey Park is a perfect family friendly place, with just the right kind of rides for even [...]
Make Meaning’s Creativity Experience is Perfect for Father’s Day!
by Pam on May 26,2011
You would think that since I am currently unemployed, I would be able to plan ahead to get presents for The Hubby for his birthday and Father’s Day. Well, guess things don’t change much. The day before his birthday, I decided to bring O to Make Meaning’s creativity experience shop on the Upper West Side [...]
Wordless Wednesday: How We Get Our Toddler to Stay In Bed Until 7am
by Pam on May 25,2011
We bought our 3 1/2 year old a pink digital clock (of course), and taught her that she couldn’t get out of bed — or out of her bedroom — until the clock said “7″. We covered up the other two digits for her clarity. To make the deal even sweeter for her, we bought [...]

by Pam on May 19,2011
Sooner or later, it will be summer (rain, rain go away!) and we will all be going away in some version or another. Going on vacation with tots-in-tow could test your logistical preparation skills.

Yes, I’m a Mommy and I CAN Do It!
by Pam on May 6,2011
I may have been over-dramatic yesterday; questioning myself whether or not I could “survive” without our caregiver who couldn’t come in because she was sick. I clearly under-estimated myself as a Mom and I clearly under-estimated my children as awesome children. Long story short, the day went super smooth and we all had a great [...]
Our Caregiver is Out Sick – So I get to be Mommy! Can I do it???
by Pam on May 5,2011
Our caregiver, Nanay, who has been with us for 7+ years, has hardly called out sick. I can count on one hand how many days she’s been absent due to a sickness. Today, she could not come in because her allergies are so bad (along with a whole lot of other people!). When I was [...]
Trying to Get an Unplugged Family Fun Night Started
by Pam on May 2,2011
Even though I am Filipino, I’ve had a lot of exposure to the Jewish religion: I grew up with my mom and step-father who is Jewish and my first job was working for a company that was owned by a Jewish family thus, we were able to leave on Fridays before sundown for the Sabbath. [...]
