Yes, I decided to change my Blog name. It’s a year already when I started this blog and I must say that the experience was fun. I am focused now in writing more posts unlike before that I have no idea what I was doing haha! These are the crazy things I did:

1.    I didn’t think much of the blog name. I attended an event before and I think no one understands the name even if I said it already. Now that I changed the name, nagkagulo naman mga posts ko. Back to zero with the Google search and the sites which linked up the posts to my blog.
2.    I seldom update my blog. I had a hard time adjusting with Meg’s schedule and mine that I wasn’t able to blog (two months straight I think).  
3.    I don’t know about the blogosphere. I was not aware of the blog world. Yung tipong makasulat lang go na. I didn’t know that there are a lot out there who blogs (and are famous and recognized). I didn’t know about PR, Events, Sponsorship, etc.
4.    There’s no connection. I wasn’t able to connect more to people. Now that I’m starting to connect – ang SAYA pala. To learn more about other people – in general, mommyhood and kids.

Today may be the first year in my blogging adventure, but for me, this is only the beginning. I have so much to learn and more people to meet and episodes to fill. 

And NOW indeed, I am The Working Hands-On Mom (The Wh-o Mom).

: What other activities do your kids enjoy? I'll update my list


     Meg loves Pretend Play. I don’t know where she gets all the ideas but she thinks of it instantaneously. Last week, she asked me to buy her a tea set. I nodded but the idea didn’t sink in entirely until she repeated it again a few days ago when we were studying for her Mastery Test. I asked her:

Me (Irene): Anak aanhin mo naman ang tea set?
Meg: For our Tea Party!
Me: Improvise muna tayo. Let’s use our imagination.

     She got all her dolls and started to gather some materials for the tea party like notebook for the plate, her Barbie comb for the spoon, and the little cups we have at home for the tea cups. After 5 minutes, she stopped playing.

Meg: Ayoko na! Di naman totoo. Wala akong imagination.

     Haha I laughed but at the same time I was thinking if I’d buy her a tea set or let it pass. I said to her I’ll buy it after all her tests.

     I don’t invest much on Meg’s toys. If it isn’t necessary and I don’t feel the URGENT need to buy, I won’t buy. Plus, she has collected more toys as gifts to her. Then I saw these at the Toy section of SM Department store.
      It’s from Disney and PINK all over! =) The BEST part? It’s really cheap and on SALE. I got the two sets for only 110.00. You can actually choose different kinds of tea set from SM ranging from 100.00-500.00. 

     When I got home, Meg couldn’t contain her joy and immediately INVITED Keira, Tori, Angela, and Jessica for a Tea Party. Haha! 
      So again I’m the best MOM in the world for Meg (and it doesn’t need an EXPENSIVE toy to be one).
For picture purposes lang ang Twinings ha. Akin yan. :)
      : Where do you buy your toys? I’m looking for a cash register toy. The saleslady showed me two kinds with that concept but it’s battery-operated. I want a simpler one like this. 

     Now you know what the little girl is up to. :D
