10 Things Friday Vol. 5

10 Things Friday is a segment on this blog where I share all the significant things that happened to me in a week. Or It could also be about 10 anything really, to make it even more flexible for me. I'm sure you get the idea.

It's been a while since I have 10 Things Friday on this blog. I just can't complete 10 things anything these last couple of weeks but I have some today, so let's roll, shall we?



1. My baby and I are going out tonight for dinner with my previous bosses and co-workers. Bringing him without my husband (he needs to work) is a challenge but I really want to see those people. I miss them. My sister and niece will come with us. Love that I have sisters/best friends that I can count on in times like this. One very blessed mommy here!

2. My son just turned 11 months this week. Time really flies! Part of me wants to keep him as a baby forever while the other part of me is excited to see what kind of grown up he's going to be. Hayz #momlife right?

3. Obviously, he's going to turn one year old soon, I am already preparing for that. Nothing fancy though. We are just going to celebrate at my sister's house which also our third home (hehe.. Our second is my parent's). They have a bigger house that's why we decided to do it there. I want my son to enjoy his birthday and I am sure he will enjoy it if he is comfortable and he will be at my sis's house. We're saving the big birthday celebration for when he is older and fully understands what's going on.

4. My husband and I are preparing for the transformation of my son's little play area in our room. The colored mats were a bad idea because it's not Montessori. I regretted that I ever bought those. We removed all of the mats from the floor because my son doesn't need them anymore. There are some still on our wall. I can't remove them all yet because the paint will come off as well. But I already found a solution that does not include repainting our room. You bet! Wallpaper!

5. It's father's day this weekend. It's my husband's first father's day. So I am excited for him. Do you already have gifts for your husband and father on father's day? If you don't check out this post for ideas.

6. I've been reading romance novels again. I'm trying to sneak in some reading while the baby is concentrating on his work (Montessori term for "play") or when he's sleeping.  If you know me well, you'll know, I love good, cheesy, romantic novels. Yeah. I am that kind of person. And I am not ashamed. Because guess what? I am not alone.  Bwahaha... (P.S. I am loving Instagram Stories.)

7. There are a lot of good ones (romantic novels) that are free on Play Books. So I am taking advantage of those for now. But I am going to buy some books that I really like in the future. Digital books are cheaper so I prefer them at the moment.

8. I love that my son also loves books. My effort has paid off. Sometimes he will make me read all the books in his small collection and I absolutely love those precious moments we spent together.

9. I might go back to "work" soon. Only this time, I'll be working from home. I will miss being a full-time mom for sure but I need to work for my son. Whew!

10. On the other hand, I am grateful that there are a lot of jobs that we can do without leaving the comfort of our homes. It's such a blessing to us parents who want to personally look after our children while working. 

That's it for my 10 things Friday! Have a wonderful weekend loves! Thanks for being here!

  1. I love staying at home and taking of our kids. And I'm thankful that I get to earn some from home, too. Getting online jobs is a great opportunity.

  3. My son is 9 months old now and will turn 1 year old in a matter of months too. Like you, we are not planning any big birthday celebration. Maybe just go out of town with the family. I'm also looking for suitable Montessori mats but haven't found one yet. I hope you'll share here if you are able to find one. :)

    1. I am not sure if I am going to buy a mat. My son is almost 1. I am thinking of just buying a rug. But I read from one Montessori mom on IG that she got white rubber mats from Metro Dept. Store at Alabang Town Center.
