Mommy Survival

Some call me crazy for putting too much effort into my son’s daily activities. He is only a year old but I’ve been planning his activities from day one. I thought I was already prepared but my son learns pretty fast so I have to keep up. Here are some of my essentials when he was just 7 months old. (I have a ton of backlog posts so please bear with me)

We (my mom and I) collect Happy Meal toys. They’re cheap and they last a long time. When my son gets bored, I just pull up a pack. Monkey is from dad, a pasalubong.

Stickers are my son’s favorite. It’s a good thing I have quite a collection from my childhood. I’ve been collecting them since I was 6. I had many offers from different people wanting to buy them but I kept them. Little did I know that I will have a use for them when I got older.

Cheap toys such as these glasses are a must. This is part of a glow stick pack. I insert a couple of glow sticks into the frame and fun, fun, fun! My son gets a kick seeing any of us wear this pair of glasses.

I also got a few of these cheap finger puppets at IKEA. They’re great for storytelling.

My son loves to read. He prefers books over TV. He is especially crazy about Captain Hook and the Tick Tock Croc.

More stickers. These are from my teenage years when I was around 13-14 years old. They only cost 10 pesos per pack of 2. Those were the good old days…

My son loves trains so this Duplo train is a favorite.

He is also crazy about cars. This car has already been donated. Soon it will make another boy happy.

More books. Board books and soft books are the best for little hands. My son has grown tired of Sir Prance-a-Lot but he is still fond of this board book from  his Ninang Mich. He likes the photos especially that cat.

I will post more current activities soon.

I am trying to pick up speed when it comes to blogging so that I can post more current topics. Please hang in there!
