It was an eventful afternoon for me. A lot of things in mind and to do. And while I’m in the middle of my busyness, I heard a crash in the kitchen.

Maybe it was the tiring day or stress altogether that stopped me from composing myself. And there comes his crying. It was a plea of fear. Fear of what had happened and to me and my anger. I looked at him and ask, “What happened?” and his next few words left me speechless – “Mommy! No, no galit. Love only.” Continue reading “No galit. Love only.”

All I wanted was to give Jayco an unforgettable childhood. The best he can ever have. That will be with him as he grows up.
I became a single mom a few months after my son turned 1. As heartbroken as I can be, I have no time for weeping since I have I a little one depending on me. But deep in my heart I have worries and questions I face every single day. How am I going to do this? What kind of future I can provide him with? How can I make him feel whole, happy, and complete despite the fact that I am the only one he has?
This is what my blog site’s going to be all about. The wonders of motherhood; the highs and lows and everything else in between. My wanders with Jayco; the tradition we started. Building lasting memories with and for him.
