Sometimes it’s really hard

July 31, 2008 Pearl 0

There are times when it’s really difficult to be a working mom. For me, it’s when my little girl calls me in the office crying over something I couldn’t do anything about just because I’m not by her side.Just like yesterday, she called me up and she was really crying hard, I couldn’t even understand what she was trying to tell me. In between her sobs, I was able to get some bits and pieces of what she was trying to tell me, and it was about her school bag — her well-loved school bag. She said the handle was Read More

I was doing my usual rounds of different blogs when I came across the article by Guy Kawasaki, The Ultimate Mommy Blog List, in his website. Boy, am I glad I came across his list! He even provided brief descriptions for each site which is really helpful if you just want to scan the list first.

She always opens it as her background music even when she’s playing online in her favorite website, y8.com. Last Saturday, as she was again listening to her favorite music, she came to me and said she cried as she was watching a video that she saw in youtube. It was entitled Duty, and the background music was Still, by Hillsong. She said it was about a boy who was entrusted by Jesus to watch over the cross Read More

The importance of involving the kids

July 27, 2008 Pearl 0

In our household, we regularly hold family meetings and we include in the agenda the financial status of our family. I prepared a spreadsheet of our budget, with all the details of our payables (debt/loans), daily/weekly/monthly expenses and posted it on the wall in our bedroom. I then showed it to our kids so that they’re aware of what’s happening. My kids are ages 15, 13, and 8, and believe me, they understand what me and their Dad are trying to tell them. Now, they can fully comprehend why they cannot always have the things that they want. There was Read More
