I'm Yours, Mraz.

Last night, you sang with your heart and we felt it. You were right, the love inside Araneta last night was overflowing, and it’s all because of you. When you sang “Lucky”, I really felt it, and all I could do was hold my husband’s hand and be thankful that yes, I am in love with my best friend.

And though I was hoping until the very last minute that you’re going to sing Geek in the Pink, okay na rin coz you did so much more than I expected. It was a great show from start to finish.  Not a minute wasted, all thanks to you.

Please have another concert here. Geek in the Pink, don’t forget. :)

I’ve posted a blog before on how I really want to switch to cloth diapers for number of good reasons. Unfortunately, I’ve failed for the first few months and just settled for the easy way — disposables.

But then, Nathan started having rashes again, and it really bothers me kasi I know the reason why he’s having rashes, and I can do something about it pero sinukuan ko lang. So, I ordered few pieces of really good cloth diapers from Bamboo Dappy, very unlike my Chino Pino’s na one weewee palit agad, these are waterproof and has linings para maabsorb yung weewee.

I’m so happy to say na we’re 90% on cloth diapers now. It’s hard, but it’s all worth it when I see Nathan’s butt na so makinis and walang rashes. Hehe! I’m still learning, grabe sa dami ng research talaga to know if I’m doing it right or if there’s anything else I can do para malessen ang gastos. (Read:DIY) Ang mahal kaya ng cloth diapers! Haha.

I’m definitely looking forward to being 100% CD Mom, kahit night time or kahit aalis, naka cloth diapers. That’s gonna take a lot of practice for sure pero ok lang, kakayanin! :)

—Edit /October 26, 2011—

I’m so proud! We haven’t used a single disposable diaper for 5 days already. Karir kung karir! Although ang problem ko nalang ngayon is how to budget yung paglalaba. Right now, since konti palang yung stash namin, everyday ako naglalaba. Handwashed pa yan, kasi takot ako masira yung diapers — ang mahal kaya! Pero since supportive si Dudad, order pa daw ako para masatisfy yung stash ko para daw di ako everyday naglalaba. Haha!

Nathan’s bum is so makinis na, nakakatuwa!

Concerts, concerts!

I honestly can’t wait for the 30th. 

As a bonus for Bob’s hard work, our friend and partner, John, gave us free tickets to Jason Mraz’ concert! He gave us funds to buy Patron seats, but boy, ang bilis nasold out yung patron seats! Imagine our faces when the lady told us only Upper Box B and General Admission tickets were being sold. 

But on the other hand, okay na yun noh! We will go there to hear him sing Live naman e. Bonus na yung makita siyang upfront. Bob and I are so excited na talaga. Bob’s been playing his songs nonstop para daw memorized na namin pagdating ng concert. Kumusta naman yun, kahit memorized as if naman makakasabay sa beat ni Mraz! Hehe!

Tapos Train naman kasunod on December 7. Bob and I have  a list of performers na pag pumunta dito eh hindi namin palalagpasin yung concert, and Train is among that list! It’s too close so I don’t know if we can afford the tickets, parang sobrang nakakaguilty manood ng concert magkasunod, sayang ang pera! Pero, hayy we’ll never know! Hehe!

Dear Nathan,

Six months ka na today. I wish I can express in words just how happy you made us feel from Day 1. You never fail to amaze us, never fail to make us smile. I’m not afraid of having bad days now, isang tingin palang sayo, tanggal na lahat ng negative vibes, pano pa kung ngumiti ka? 

Everyday, we thank God for giving us you. We thank Him for trusting us, for believing that we are the right parents for you. 

Know that we love you so much, and that a lot of our family and friends love you too. You should see how our faces light up when you smile. You are well loved, anak. Much much more than words can say.

Choco Drink.

This evening, we gave a child vendor a hundred peso bill and told him to keep the change. Perhaps stunned, he looked at the bill for maybe five seconds and then looked back at us. Said thank you and then left with a smile. We caught him look at the bill again, as if checking if it were real. 

Then he went inside the nearby bakery, got himself a chocolate drink and settled happily on the bench outside.

Lord, thank you for our blessings. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share it with others. Bless that kid, Lord. Keep him safe and healthy.
