Matthew's First Dental Visit + Minions McDip Experience

I know it's a bit late. Though he had a dental check up once in  his school, this is the first time we went to a dental clinic.

I intentionally delayed it because I want his first dental visit to be a pleasant one. I waited till I can talk to him about what he will do and what he will expect on the visit. I don't want him to be like me who grew up afraid of dentist. My first dental visit was a like a nightmare for me kasi. And I don't want him to experience the same thing too.

So there we went to the nearest dental clinic that is very child friendly.

I was nervous at first because knowing hyperactive Matthew is, he might not cooperate. But I was surprise how he behave well the whole procedure.

He had first oral prophylaxis. Also, Matthew had two molar teeth that has cavities so the Dentist had to seal with fillings to prevent further damage and to protect the pulp from bacteria.

After dental filling, the Dentist applied fluoride on his teeth to fight cavities away.

Part of the cleaning also includes dental bleaching.

The Dentist was so amazed on how behave Matthew was thinking it was his first time. In less than 30 minutes, he was done. For that. the Dentist gave his a toy as a gift.

Now, Matthew is more confident to show his teeth and smile from cheek to cheek. And roar like this, look!

Finally, as a reward, we treated him at McDo and had our first Minions McDip experience. He also had this Happy Meal Transformer toy.

Our little boy had so much fun and so was his Daddy, haha!

This day was also our pre-anniversary celebration :) Always looking forward to weekend. Have a great one!

Elimidrol: Opiate Withdrawal Symptoms Best Remedy

Opiates are a class of of drugs that are usually use for treatment of pain. Oxycontin (oxycodone), Vicodin (hydrocodone and acetaminophen), Dilaudid (hydromorphone), and morphine are some of prescription opiates. While certain prohibited drugs like heroin, are also opiates.

Opiates are great pain reliever, however, these drugs can cause physical dependency and worst. Addiction. Decreasing the amount or stopping the use of opiates may lead to physical symptoms of withdrawal. This is particularly true when opiate has been used at high doses for more than few weeks. The use of large amounts of opiates alters the many systems in the body. Thus withdrawal effects occur when the body adjusts without the opiates in the system.

Monday Inspiration: Happy 7/12th to Us

July 27th is the day we chose to risk our long years of friendship for love... And I must say, I never regret it because today is our 7th wedding anniversary and our 12th year of love. 

What we have is not really perfect but our marriage is one of biggest blessings God gave me. I will never stop thanking God for giving me the best partner. I can not think of anyone who can fill the other half of my heart. We may shortcomings and imperfections but at the end of the day, it's the love, trust and respect that makes our marriage stronger and worth fighting for.

With that let me share this great reminder for all of us husbands and wives.

Work + Workout = #WORKOUTTOWORK

As you all know, I am a working mom and I work outside home. Our home is a little far from our workplace and it’s a 4-ride trip making the travel time approximately 2 hours. That includes traffic and waiting for the jeepney to be filled with fellow commuters. Thank God Daddy A has a car so the 2-hour travel time is reduced to 30 minutes to 1 hours when there’s road construction on our way.

Monday Inspiration: MOTHERHOOD

Hello Monday!

Time flies real fast. In less than two weeks, we will say goodbye to July. Whew! Anyway, I hope you started your week right. For today, let me share this inspirational quote about motherhood.
Inspirational Quotes, Monday Inspiration, mother, motherhood, motherhood quotes
Inspirational Quote on Motherhood

“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, 
to put someone else's happiness and 
well-being ahead of your own, 
to teach the hard lessons, 
to do the right thing even 
when you're not sure what the right thing is...
and to forgive yourself, 
over and over again, 
for doing everything wrong.”

Lately, I am feeling this mommy guilt again. I always feel that what I am doing is not enough or will never be enough. I am thinking of quitting my job and take the risk to become a stay at home mom. Especially now that in two months my sister will leave us. That even added to the pressure I am feeling today. 

But with everything I am feeling and failing at, I will not quit motherhood. It's truly a choice... To be a selfless mom... To always do what is right even if you really don't know what is right, and to be hurt when you need to teach your kid the lessons, the hard way. I always tell my son that the last thing I want to do is to hurt him. During times I lost my temper, I always blame my self for doing wrong. Guilt and pain will always be there. But all of these, I must say, is all worth it.

Now, who can relate?

Have a blissful week everyone!

On Drunk Driving and Breathalyzer Analysis

It's been 17 years now when I lost my elder brother because of a vehicular accident. There were three of them riding a motorcycle and about to turn, when a fast approaching car hit them. All the three of them died while the driver of the car was not hurt at all. My brother and his 2 friends was drunk and so was the driver of the car who hit them. It was one of the saddest days in my life and if only I can get back on that time, I would not let him leave our house. He left 3 very small boys then and their lives were never the same again without their father.

Based on statistics, one of the most common causes of vehicular accident is drunk driving. Because of the increasing numbers of accidents caused by this, The government created the Republic Act 10586, also known as Anti-Drunk/Drugged Driving Act.

This act aims to ensure safety of pedestrians and protect motorists. Penalty for violating this rule includes not less than 3 months but not more than 20 years imprisonment, a fine of 20,000 to half a million pesos and either suspension or permanent dismissal of driver's license.

Driver caught against this act will undergo "field sobriety test" test which includes eye test, one-leg stand, and walk and turn test.

Monday Inspiration: Helping A Person

Rainy Monday everyone!

Let's have our Monday inspirational quote.

Helping Quote
Source: thatonerule

This quote is just in time to make me realize that helping a person may not change the world. Instead, it will change the world of that person. This may also apply if someone borrow or get something from you. Yes, you may feel bad if that person will not be able to get that something back to you. But just think that something or money helped that person then you will free your self from anger and grudge. Also remember, that life is fair and whatever you gave, it will be back to you in thousand folds.

Have a great week everyone.

Cousins + Love = Cuteness Overload

My sister together with her two kids are vacationing at home. Matthew is not used to being with other kids at home. In fact there are times I feel he doesn't like the attention being divided. He doesn't want to share. But as days goes by, our little boy is adjusting, and is learning to share and give way to his younger cousins.

Our home is filled with laughter, giggles and cuteness (and occasional crying, haha!). And they love taking photos as well. So let me share their super cute photos.

Warning: Cuteness overload!

The photo above was taken on the 7th month birthday celebration (is that right? haha) of baby PJ. Daddy baked a yema cake and we had a special dinner.
