Sixteen years ago, on December 22, 1996, Lauren wrote her first journal entry. The word blog was non-existent then. These days, kids as young as 5 years old write on their own blogs. The world wide web entered the lives of my two young girls in 1995 when rules were just starting to be made. Read More →

My children mean the world to me.  I gave up a career to take care of them, teach them to be good and kind to others, and supplement their education at home.

I blame Butch Dalisay for the La-Z-Boy which I gave as a Christmas gift to my husband. I showed Butch’ La-Z-Boy entry to my Butch and ever since, my hubby kept asking “so will you buy me a La-Z-Boy?”

I think I have mentioned before that my husband is my co-homemaker . For the past two years, he took over my role in grocery shopping. It’s really sweet of him to shop for me. I don’t mind it one bit because I don’t enjoy grocery shopping. Prices of the goods are quite depressing. I Read More →
