2 weeks! It’s been exactly 2 weeks since my last post here. (Do you notice a trend here? Read: I love counting exactly how many days I haven’t been blogging! Ha, ha!)
Well, you can imagine that a lot of things have happened again, since I last updated this space. Which means I (again) have a lot to write about!
One of the most significant things that happened, of course, was Typhoon Glenda or #GlendaPH, as “she” was known on social media. I felt like we weren’t very prepared for Glenda, which is why I shared a few tips for preparing for a typhoon here. I hope they’re helpful somehow!
Anyway, I’m back for a bit for this looooong overdue post to thank my blog partners for their support — they have been such a blessing to my family, especially when it comes to our homeschooling adventures! Please do show these great businesses and brands some love, too, by visiting their websites and/or social media sites!
Teacher Suzette Yu-Kho has been a staunch supporter of my blog for quite some time now — she was actually my first blog partner! She has consistently received the Kindermusik Maestro Award for her outreach work. Through her kindness, our children were also granted scholarships, under the Ruth D. Anderson Kindermusik Children’s Fund for scholars.

Child’s SPACE actually stands for Child’s School for the Practice of Appropriate Childhood Education. It provides young children with a play-based, child-centered and integrated curriculum. Know more about this Christ-centered progressive school by reading my post here.
Discovery Depot is a wonderful resource for wooden educational toys — they have a wide range of products available, and make learning through play super fun!
Medela’s products are highly recommended among breastfeeding mom circles. Although a mother’s best bet is still direct feeding and/or cup feeding her baby milk expressed via hand and not a breast pump, some moms find it easier and more practical to pump their milk with a manual or electric pump. For many of these moms, Medela is their go-to brand for breast pumps.
Connect with Medela Moms via Facebook here.
LeapFrog’s range of educational toys are a great way to use technology in learning. We were recently blessed to receive some products to try out, which I hope to be able to write about soon!
In the meantime, please do “like” the LeapFrog Philippines Facebook page for updates about their products!

Fellow homeschooling mom Dindi Besinga-Manlapaz is the woman behind Likhang Bata Online Gallery. Art is her passion, and so is teaching!

To be perfectly honest with you, I am still amazed that brands, businesses and individuals would even consider partnering with me by way of ad placements, sponsored posts or social media promotion campaigns! I don’t really consider my blog “famous” at all, especially if you compare it to other local mommy blogs!
Still, I praise God that our family is blessed through different blog partnerships — like I said, they are a great help to our family, especially the kids’ homeschooling. I am also able to bless others through these partnerships and promote brands/businesses that are truly worth recommending to others!
If you are a business owner or have services/products that you wish to promote (mompreneurs and WAHMs especially hold a special place in my heart!) and are interested in partnering with me in any way, please feel free to contact me — let’s “talk”!
If you are in need of a writer, editor or speaker, feel free to contact me too! Till my next post, I pray for God’s blessings for you and your loved ones!
