Dining out with the family

It has been a while since the last time I treated my family for dinner. I am having problems financially for the past months because my online kinds of stuff becoming slow. I preferred to save than to spend. It is not good to spend much when the income is very slow and low. I am in a panic a bit online blogging is my bread and butter. I do not know where to get money to pay my bills if then earning online will be gone. I even thought of finding a job in the city. Good thing my online earning/blogging is back to normal now. I can say it is back on track.

My online earning is back on track, I earned more than I expected. I have save some in my wallet. Because I have extra, I have thought of treating the family to dinner last weekend. We went to the wake of a family friend but before going there, I decided for us to have dinner first at our favorite fast food chain. It feels really good to be able to treat the family. Seeing them smiling and savoring their favorite meal is a joy in my heart. I am so happy that I am able to share to my family the earning I have online. Thanks to God for the blessings as always!

How to stop her from playing

My niece is 14 years old now. She is getting bigger and taller, taller than me to be exact. I am happy that is growing faster but I am sad because she still likes to play with kids. I have done my best to stop her from playing because it is not good to look at. Her playmates are smaller than her. She is in high school and her playmates are grade school. I discourage her to stop her from playing but it does not work. She even likes to play more. She likes to play with kids younger than her than kids at her age.

I give her new responsibilities at home to divert her from playing but it does not. I told her parents about this and they just told me to let her do what she likes, one day she will stop on her own will. When will that day come?? The question that only the time can answer, and worse, it is not sure if it is sooner or later. I really hope that the niece will realize sooner. When I was at her age, I already know how to cook, do the laundry, clean the house and do household chores. Things that I want the niece to do, but no cooperation from her parents. If only I am her mother.LOL Well, I will just give her time and let her enjoy.

Visiting my new nephew

Last October 30, 2018, my sister-in-law gave birth to their first baby. It is a boy. I was not able to go with them to the hospital because we are busy preparing for the 2nd birthday of my niece the following day. The brother is so happy telling us that his wife gave birth already via normal delivery. The prayers have been answered because the baby is healthy, the sister-in-law is safe and also it is a normal delivery. They have been praying for this baby for years and now here it is. The pain is worth it, according to my sister-in-law. It is worth it because the nephew is so cute.


I went to visit my nephew last Friday. I visit because the brother asked me to help them how to take the baby a bath, how to carry him properly, how to make the baby burp after feeding him and also brought some things needed by the baby. Yes, I am single and I learned those things through experiences from cousins, aunts, and watching videos online. I get to spend time with the nephew for two days and I am so happy. I missed carrying the baby in my arms, feeding the baby and bathing the baby. I so wish that they live near us so I can visit them anytime I want.

I took photos of my super cute nephew.

It’s a boy!

After the three miscarriages, the sister-in-law is pregnant and is due in the second week of November. My brother is so happy because they have been waiting for this wonderful gift from God for four (4) years. Finally, they will become parents later this year. We are also excited for them too. We have been praying for this. The soon to be parents are busy buying things for the baby in her fifth months of pregnancy. they are so excited for their first born. They bought all white colored clothes because they do not know the gender of the baby yet.

Two weeks ago, the sister-in-law had her ultrasound to know the gender of the baby. And they will be having a son. Yes, it is a boy and the brother is the happiest person on earth. Indeed an answered prayers. They have patiently waited and the Lord to give them the best gift ever in their life. I am so excited to meet the new member in the family, the brother and sister-in-law’s bundle of joy, the family’s new angel. Right now, they are busy preparing the things needed to bring to the hospital. We are praying that the sister-in-law will give birth normally, and prayed that both of them is fine and the baby is healthy. Can’t wait to see you baby Ryan.

Two more months

After the two miscarriages, the brother and his will soon have their first born. The baby will see the beauty of life in two months. The long wait is over and they will finally become parents. They brother and sister-in-law visited us two days ago and told us that they will have a son. They are so excited to see their son. Thank you, God, for this blessing to the couple. This year is indeed a blessed year for us and especially to the brother and SIL. They got married last May and now they will have the baby in November. It is an answered prayer and we are so happy for them.

Since they live far from us, we cannot be there when the big day comes but we see to it to visit them when she gave birth. I just give them some suggestions to do before the day comes. Things that they need to prepare while waiting. Listing the things to bring at the hospital. Also, told the SIL to put all the things needed to bring in the hospital bag so when the day comes, they just grab the bag and go to the hospital. I pray that the SIL will have the safe delivery. Also, pray for both the SIL and the baby’s safety. See you soon little one, the new member in the family. Can’t wait to see you and carry you in my arms.
