Teaching Them Young: The DO's and DONT's of Teaching Kids How to Save Money

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Hello there guys? How's your week so far? Mine is okay so far except that half of our laboratory is being demolished. Dust and dirt are everywhere. But it's okay because I still be able to do my work despite limited space.

Anyway, today let me share another great article on teaching our kids to save money. If you find my post about  Ways to Teach Our Kids to Save Money helpful, then this is a must read too.

More than a year ago, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas launched a financial literacy campaign that targeted kids as young as six years old. The endeavor called Banking on Your Future, aims to start kids early on the path of savings, teach them the value of putting money in the bank, and eventually, create future generations of money-savvy adults. In partnership with the country's biggest banking institutions and the Department of Education, Banking on Your Future allows parents to open up account for kids with a minimum deposit as low as PHP 100.00.

#SAHM for 4 Days and Some Realizations

Saturday, February 21, 2015

Today is the 2nd day that I am back at work. For 4 days, I stayed at home to take care of my mother and my son. For me, it’s not a sacrifice because I love them both. 

Although, my heart is filled with worries I trust God that this happens for a reason. Our househelp left us so soon without prior notice. She left us hanging but I decided not to about her because she doesn't deserve a space here. I was very disappointed but I still wish her well.

I look at this experience as a chance to be with the two important people in my life. My son was so excited when he learned I am the one who will accompany him to his school, which by the way are just few steps from our home.

For the longest time, I am not really into house chores. From day 1 of being a stay at home mom (for a while), I cook for the four us and do the dishes as well. I clean the house, wash our clothes and bathe Matt and Nanay. I am also the one who make accompany and fetch Matt from school. I fed them and see to it he and Nanay will take their nap. After that, I prepare their merienda.

God is telling me something...

Monday, February 16, 2015

Time check, it's 4:07 pm. Finally, I am done with all the chores. Would you believe that I started working at 6 in the morning? Yes, that long. And yes, we have no househelp again.

Now I feel that God is telling me something, Is this already a sign that I have been waiting for? I am emotionally not okay now. I need some good vibes now. And I am so thankful with this little boy.
