Mumnesia

I’m suffering from a sickness.

It’s called mumnesia.

Funnily, it’s been more than 3 years since I’ve had my anaesthesia (for my CS operation), but mumnesia is only affecting me now. I keep on forgetting everything! Well, I’m thankful it doesn’t affect my job — but I’m sure that’s hugely because of Todoist (thank you, Todoist). All my tasks and deadlines need to be written into my Todoist list or I’ll forget everything. Seriously.

My other “big” tasks (for the household, for the blog) all get written into my list, so I don’t really forget them. But the everyday stuff? The everyday stuff — the mundane things that don’t necessarily get written into my list — are what gets me into trouble.

Lifestyle Yurisms

Yurisms: I Dropped the Alligator

Yuri is a handful.

There, I said it.

I was so happy when we got out of the so-called Terrible Two’s stage unscathed. He was always a well-behaved child who was normally active and only seldom threw tantrums.

I was wrong. The real challenge is when your child turns three. 

Don’t get me wrong; Yuri still has a mostly happy disposition and could very well behave when needed. However, at this age, he’s also beginning to have a stronger personality and know the fine art of manipulating adults. He still isn’t into throwing tantrums – I guess that goes with the fact that I either ignore him or laugh at him when he attempts to – but can pretend-cry to see if he can get what he wants.

But despite these, I love many things about this age. One of these things is the funny things kids say. Yuri has his own share of funny anecdotes! Here are the funny stuff he recently did:

Alligator Drop

One day, I heard a soft crash – clearly, something fell (or was dropped) in the bedroom nearby. As expected, Yuri came running to me and said,

Nahulog ko alligator mo.

Me: Anong alligator?

Yuri: Yung alligator na gamit mo.

I was confused and kept asking him what that alligator was until he showed me what he meant:

Hands-On Parenting While Earning Summit

HOPE Summit

There are a lot of things I love about living in Davao, but I admit living far from Metro Manila also has its consequences. One of them is not being able to attend workshops that I would have really loved to attend! An example is the upcoming HOPE or Hands-On Parenting while Earning Summit. I mean, it calls out to me – as a hands-on parent and full-time WAHM, I really wish I could attend this workshop.

Since I could not attend it, I hope you guys can! Here’s the information about the summit:
