Teaching Kids to be Tough

We were reading our devotional the other night when Johan said he wanted to tell me something.

During recess, his friend in school asked him to draw a video game character, which he did. Then another classmate came in the room, looked at his drawing and said, “Pangit naman ng drawing mo!”.

Welcome to This Filipina Mom!

Hi everybody! Welcome to my blog, This Filipina Mom.

I am a mom to two wonderful boys, Johan and Jeron. I married my husband, Deck, in 2009 after being in a relationship for eight years. I have a full time day job which I love but time came when the kids’ needs are growing by the day and I wanted to stay home as much as I can to be with them. That was the time that I started this blog. It was during a time when I was at a crossroad as to what to choose – my career or staying home for the kids.

I love writing. I used to blog consistently since 2009, I even earned thru sponsored posts. I eventually stopped when I gave birth to my youngest son, Jeron. I just don’t have enough time for everything then. I was too busy with work, I have two kids to take care of at home, I have a husband who needs me as well. Writing was put in the backseat.

Then vlogging became a thing. I tried to join the bandwagon but the introvert in me is so conscious in front of the camera that I don’t see myself as vlogger anytime soon. Maybe I’ll post a few video clips now and then.

I really want to concentrate on this and go back to writing. I love books and I am in awe with authors who have a way of making me imagine that I am part of a particular scene in the book. I wish to be like that – to be able to write great content, compose sensible articles, become a storyteller that would play with your imagination. Who knows, I might even write a book someday?

So, here’s to my new journey in writing. Come join the ride with me.
