When I was a child I wasn't too keen on brushing teeth (aren't all kids) as a consequence plaque slowly built up and by the time I hit my late teens I lost 2 of my side teeth (one on the left and one on the right). It wasn't a nice childhood memory plus not having your original tooth isn't healthy not to mention pretty! I never want my kids to experience the same, that is why im vigilant in stressing the importance of good oral hygiene on them. I always tell them, once you get rid of your milk teeth, those adult teeth will serve you till your gray old years so better take care of it. Sometimes my daughter wants to take a short cut [Read More...]
My husband recently started working in Taipei and the move was quite disconcerting for us considering we have never been apart before. Now, more than at any time of our family life, we appreciate and rely on the power of digital connections to bond as a family.
Apple’s Facetime is our favorite means of communication. We would call dad or dad would call us, as we rehash the events of the day and say our goodnights. Or we would do a Facetime by the poolside and show daddy how long our pre- schooler can stay under water. Or dad would pan the phone to show us the new restaurant he discovered.
Viber is where we share photos, videos and funny links. The photos range from a math problem dad has to help the kids solve to what we had for dinner, from the pouring rain outside or our little boy dressed up in his favorite Darth Vader costume to the gigantic cockroach that mom killed.
It is through these little bits of communication that we try to make the best of what the distance is throwing at us.
And since our means of communication relies heavily on digital connections, it is important that we have reliable internet connection. I may have complained about PLDT in the past, but in the end, amongst all the internet providers in the country, PLDT remains to still be the better choice.
PLDT together with SMART Communications has come up with another breakthrough product to strengthen communications in families.

TheGoMom Nominated as Best Parenting Blog at Nuffnang Awards 2016 #NNMatchlessMomLilian #NUFFNANGAWARDS2016 #Blogopolis4D
I am beyond words! When I received an email from Nuffnang, I felt I already won! 😉 Really, I did. I was beaming from ear to ear and I called my family to let them know of the nomination. And syempre, it wasn’t enough that I tell them, I had to make them read the nomination letter, out loud!:-) It is a solid validation that all the hard work I put in the blog is of significant value to the parenting community.
When I started blogging, my only thought is that I wanted to write. I used to write for the collegiate paper and it is one of my true passions. Blogging has given me the opportunity to write once more within the confines of my home, a topic closest to my heart, parenting. Blog posts came naturally as the experiences I share came from my everyday life as a mother. It covered my confession as a serial shouter, my hilarious experience with our Quentin Tarantino maid, my insight on the reality of marriage, my tips to avoid petty theft at home, to my desire for my kids to love their Filipino identity. It also covered our family travels laden with information. And not to be discounted, as it is an integral part of the blog, are the 1,000 plus worksheets I have made for my kids, as I personally tutored them in their early years in school.
I wrote. And, I posted. And like in the movie Field of Dreams, I built it, and people came.
Readers started dropping by as I see my statistics rise. Readers started commenting how they find the site helpful. And pretty soon, advertisers noticed it too. I have been asked several times how to be noticed by advertisers [Read More...]
