the delinquent blogger mommy

i missed blogging so much. but taking care of a newborn - well, almost a month old baby, takes up 80% of my day. the 20% goes to the other two kids, and a little me time that i get as much as i can.

this me time would be spent online checking up on my friends, my social networks etc. i really can't let go of my online life.

i have a lot of things lined up to be blogged about:

> kade's birthing story
> kyle's 4th birthday
> keon's milestones
> taking care of a newborn all over again
> having the baby blues
> hubby's promotion - the ups and the downs
> and the other things i discovered here and there

but i'm taking it one day at a time. soon, i'll be able to complete this list.

and yeah, i am looking forward to going back to work but i'm torn in leaving kade at home. we still have to work on a schedule since we won't get kade a nanny. our 2 nannies would take turns in taking care of him in the meantime. i sure hope, our schedule works. but we're still crossing our fingers on this - wish us luck!

being stuck at home

it has been 2 weeks since i gave birth and i have been stuck here at home. thank god for internet access, books and of course tv to entertain me or else i would have gone crazy while being stuck with kids under the age of 5.

i may be lacking sleep taking care of a newborn, giving attention to two active toddlers but the feeling is very much rewarding. i'm making up for all the lost time and the late nights i came home. it's such a fun feeling, them seeing you the moment they wake up and before they go to sleep. i'm also thankful for my nannies who are there to lend a hand even if they're busy as well.

i'm happy that i can still sneak a liitle me time while the kids are asleep in the afternoon. i can check my mail, visit blogs, catch up on my favorite websites, and just watch tv. if only there was a Direct TV Service much like my godmother in the US where she gets to watch more than a hundred channels. now that would make the most of my maternity leave.

maybe this Direct TV would be the next best thing to hit the philippines.

sweeter than usual

last night, while hubby and i were taking a break after kyle's simple birthday dinner, hubby suddenly asked out of the blue:

" do you want to do anything this weekend? just the two of us?"

it was a sweet gesture. but i just had to ruin the moment (unintentionally of course) by saying:

"who will take care of kade then?"

if i were in my right mind, i should've said yes in a heartbeat for a little quality time with my hubby after a long time. but he mommy mode just had to kick in.

it was too late to take back what i said but hubby was kind enough to make sure that we will have our quality time soon. at least he now realizes that we both need a break from being parents and from being corporate slaves.

and once in a while we need to bring back the sweetness. *kilig*

now time to schedule that harry potter movie date :D

kade xedric is here!

just dropping by my blog to announce the birth of our third angel, kade xedric.

born on the 4th of july at 1146am. just in time, just the right moment. he waited for me to finish all my pending tasks in the office before he made his grand entrance. he even made sure i was able to go out with his older brothers a weekend before his birth, a dinner and movie date with hubby a few days before the big day.

and when the big day finally came, it was the smoothest and by far the easiest deliveries i had (and as far as i know, the one i can remember quite vividly).

seeing him after, was truly breathtaking.

all the details, all the stories will have to wait for now (plus photos) since i have to devote all my time to this little one. and i've got the best 2 months to bond with him until i go back to work and start missing him.
