Kiddie dreams

The other day, I overheard my kids talking.

Reese: Kuya, what you going to be when you grow up?
Josh: a policeman!
Reese: Me I'm going to be a ballerina!
Then she flashed a super sweet smile.

I remember when I was in kindergarten, during our graduation ceremony, all of us had to say what we would like to be when we grew up. My teacher wrote my script on a piece of paper and asked us to memorize and practice saying it at home.  I can still remember what I said,

"When I grow up I want to be a lawyer to help and defend the poor. "

I never thought that I would become what I am today.. A housewife and mother of two with nothing to worry about but the kids (and dirty dishes and laundry). Nothing beats that, I guess?! :)

What did you want to be when you were still a kid?

It's that time of the month and I asked my hubby to buy a bag of chips to satisfy my craving. (Earlier this morning he got me a coffee cheesecake) So when he got home from the car repair shop, there it was! Weeee!!!! Two small bags!

I haven't washed the dishes yet so I told myself that the chips would be my reward. I went to the kitchen to do the dishes and when I was done I went to the living room to check if there were some spots where I could do some quick uncluttering. I was surprised to hear someone cough. It was my eldest son. He was already up from his afternoon nap. Bummer. Now I can't eat my chips. I wouldn't want to teach my kids poor eating habits.

I'm sure I can still have the chips later :)

Start the week right

It's Monday!

I have read and heard from so many different articles and people that it is a big factor to start a new diet, routine, resolution or any project you would like to start on a Monday since it will greatly affect its success. In my case, I have been waiting for this day since Friday, when one of my best friends have told be about a workout she's into right now, Hiphop Abs. I said to myself: I will start on Monday. And I feel so good that I did! Although I woke up a little late today, I still had the willpower to start the workout. yey!

Aside from that, I have already done eighty percent of the things in my to do list and it's only 6 o'clock in the evening!

Little accomplishments make me happy :)

Tomorrow is another day, I hope I can keep up with the workout and the 'Monday factor' will take effect on me.

Did you start something new today?
