Parenthood is a constant process of learning and one way of enriching this experience is by reading enlightening parenting magazines and books just like those published by Summit Books’ Smart Parenting. I have all three of their books:
1.) The Smart Mom’s Guide to Pregnancy and Baby’s First Year
2.) The Smart Mom’s Guide to the Toddler Years
3.) The Smart Parenting Yaya Manual
I find all three really informative and with my toddler son who’ll be a Preschooler soon, this book “The Smart Mom’s Guide to Raising Your Preschooler” will surely be a great reference. I expect it to be as comprehensive as the apidexin reviews I’m reading now. The said book is filled with games, books, snack recipes and lots of fun activities for the preschooler kids. I wonder if it also has a listing of the different pre-schools in the metropolis. That would really be of great help to first time preschooler moms just like me. This book is available at all leading bookstores nationwide for just Php 299. I better grab a copy for myself soon!
Moving to a new home is really an overwhelming and a life changing experience. It’s been one week since we’ve transferred to our new home and more than I aid myself, I’m watching closely and assisting the little one in adjusting himself to the new environment, new routines, and the new ways we’re adapting. I can say that, so far, he’s doing good. Here are my observations of him:
1. Sleeps well at night and longer even. In Frisco, his normal rise and shine time is at 6 am. This morning, I have to wake him up because it’s already past 8.
2. Since he has an easy access to the huge container where we stock snack items, he eats all the time! I think there’s also a need for us to buy a fridge lock or of that sort since he loves opening the ref. Eeekkk..I have to watch out our electricity bill.
3. Huge thanks to Barney and Sponge Bob DVDs, he’s kept entertained since our cable TV isn’t activated yet. By the way, he also loves watching over and over the video of his first birthday party especially on the part where Flooch does his magic tricks and ventriloquism antics.
4. He has found a playmate in our neighbor’s 2 year old daughter. However, they’re still at the getting-to-know-you stage so little A still feels a little apprehensive sharing his toys.
5. Since our telephone line was installed yesterday, he requests every now and then to be assisted in calling up his grannies in Frisco and Makati for a little chitchat. He surely misses them.
6. Another big change I’ve observed on him last week is that he’s ready to be weaned from the bottle. He gladly drank milk from the glass when I introduced the idea to him. He still occasionally drinks from his bottle but I think having successfully tried thrice drinking from the glass (all by himself) is a good move. But breastfeeding wise, he’s still demanding as always and NO signs of weaning readiness still.
7. And oh, he’s been totally nappy-free (even at night) for two weeks now. He just suddenly refused to wear his diaper one night then it continued the next nights. So far, within that two weeks, he just only had 1 little accident on the bed when he woke up one morning. But other than that, we’ve been waking up dry and comfy.
8. He enjoys playing and opening the the cabinet doors (we’ve got lots of built in ones in our room). He even knows now which door to open when he gets his own clothes. Sometimes, the naughty side of him takes over and he messes all the clothing even the very well kept tuxedos of his Dad. Well, toddlers will always be playful.
With the way he’s doing, I’m sure he’ll get adjusted just fine to our new humble abode. I’m also glad to see he’s positive towards this big change we’re all embracing as a family.
This is perfect for new moms, pregnant ladies or for all mommies out there who wish to learn on how to nurture their babies’ well being the right way. Check out the remaining schedules happening in the mall nearest you.

I just found this on my Facebook feeds and I thought of sharing this for those who might be interested. I’ve always wanted to attend parenting workshops, seminars and any baby/child rearing related events as I believe that parenting is a continuous learning process. We may know our children very well but we can never claim that we’re experts and we are 100% perfect parents.
