How my parents discipline me?

To tell you the truth, my past is very harsh especially at the hand of my father. He discipline us in a harsh way like giving us a kick if we did something wrong or if we can make our tasked for the day at the house. Not only a kick like a ball but he gave us a strong pinch in our arms or thighs. There's a time that he drag my hair while im talking with my friends. I dont know why he did that infront of my friends, i feel very embarrased that time. Its kind a hurt thats why i hate my father before, but when he passed away, i feel sorry about it. I know he loves us but the way he discipline us is not a good way. It makes us hated him and become rebellious. On my mother side, my mom is a good person, she dont want to see us get hurt. If we did wrong, she just talk with us and tell us, the thing we did is wrong and we need to change and not doing it again. Sometimes she gave us pinch as a discipline but its not as strong as my papa does. We love our mom and we treasure her so much. Im so thankful to her because we grow up as a good kid. Thats the way i want to discipline my kids, just like my mom does. Not so harsh, not so rough.

Discipline - does it need to be harsh or rough?

How do you discipline your kids? If you disciplining them, does it need to be harsh or rough so that your kids will listen to you? or does it need to be more consistent of disciplining them? I dont know much about discipline but as a mother of my 2 year old son, of course i try my best to discipline him in a good way without hurting him that much. I see many parents treat their child harsh and rough especially when it comes to discipline. But do you think it helps them to be a good person when they grow up? I see many kids when i was in the Philippines that treated so bad with their parents. When they do something bad, their parents hit them with a big stick, put them in a sack and hanged them, let them kneel and put salt at their knees, kneel while parents put heavy books at their head and hands. It seems like this kind of stuff are not appropriate anymore for disciplining kids. I feel what kids feel you know... im scared because maybe when they grow up they will become more rebellious and they will going to hate their parents too. Its kind a scary isn't it? I dont want to make it happen with Dustin. Anyway the way i discipline my child is different, i dont give him spankin if his mistake is not that serious. But if he is acting too much, thats the time i give him spankin or pinch on his leg. He is such a mama's boy, he scared to his dad sometimes especially if his dad giving him spankin if he don't listen. If his dad giving him spankin, he go after me and give me hug and say "mom..." but im glad he know how to say sorry after he cry.

Baby Nap time tips...

With Dustin, i make it sure that he take a nap at 1-2:00pm. Mostly he woke up around 4-4:30pm. He get used to it, its like a routine you know... as long you are consistent of doing it, i am sure the kids will follow it and will get used to.

Here are my baby nap time tips:
- Give him a snack before nap time.
- I read his favorite story book too, he loves to read book, he wont go sleep if you didn't read him book.
- Before he take a nap, i just let him play around so that he will feel tired after.
- Make it sure that he dont sleep for more than 3-4 hours because maybe at night he wont go to sleep early.
- If he doesn't seem tired at naptime, i just put him in a crib, he will go sleep anyway :-)
- Make it sure that his diaper is clean before naptime.
- If he cry, just ignore him. If it doesn't work? you just need to tell him that he needs to take a nap, or tap his back for a few minutes before you leave.

I mostly pretend to take a nap but sometimes i end up sleeping especially if i am tired and sleepy. When i saw him closing his eyes, i leave him alone and do my thing here online. It needs a lot of work though but as a parent, we need to be patience on teaching our child. We need to be flexible and remain calm so that they can learn to adopt easily. Remember, be consistent and enjoy the moment of teaching your child this baby nap time tips :-)

Nap time...

Its time for Dustin to take a nap! Yesterday, he didn't take a nap thats why his kind a grouchy at night hehe :-) He got a spankin from his dad because he didn't eat his food and he keep playing even its already dinner time. I know he is tired but its his fault, he didn't sleep when i put him in his crib, he keep making noises, so i let him out and let him play while i have my bible study. Im glad right now, when i put him in his crib he sleep right away, i am sure he is tired because he woke up too early this morning at around 7:00am. Im tired also but i need to boiled the beef ribs so that i can grilled it tonight for dinner. Thats yummy! hehe :-) need to boil for 3-4 hours so that it become tender. I cant wait for our dinner tonight. Hmm maybe i can take an hour nap huh? then when i woke up i can put some barbecue sauce and start grilling!

Dustin Doctor's Appointment

Wednesday at 3:30pm, we went to Dino-Peds where Dustin Doctor's Appointment is. I think Dustin will going to get 1 shot for hepa. Its been almost 3 months that we never go to the doctor for Dustin's check up but im glad we had a chance to go yesterday. Dustin been really good, he even dont cry when they measure him and listen to his heartbeat. But when they start giving him a shot, he cried little bit, but he is okay after. He weight 29.6 inches, his height is 34 3/4" and his head is 19". Not that bad, his pretty healthy and i think he's growing a lot. When we get home, he fall asleep on the couch and he already feel the pain, he walk so funny hehe :-) and he cry everytime he moves his leg. I gave him tylenol and when he woke up in the morning, he is so happy that he dont feel any pain at all. When i ask him "hows your ouchy" and he says "ouchy? yehey! no ouchy!". So thats good at least he never had fever after the shot, so im happy with it.

My baby get naked!

It is funny that Dustin already starting not to like it when his diaper is wet and dirty. He mostly take off his pants and get naked. But im happy because at least he didn’t go pee on the floor. When he get naked, he go to his room and get a new diaper. He told me when he wants to go pee. I tried to keep an eye on him every 2-3 hours and wants to make it sure that he go pee to his potty training bowl. Sometimes its hard because there are times that he is lazy to go to the bathroom and go potty. So he go pee to his diaper, I scolded him sometimes of doing that but hopefully he will learn to do potty on his own next time.

Me and my Mom

Here is the picture of me and my mama. This picture taken last September 2007 when we visit my family in the Philippines. I missed my mom a lot, mother's day is coming and i am still thinking what to give to her for that special day. My mom and I have a great bond together. I am very close to my mama, and i will do my best to make her happy and eventhough we are far away to each other, i am trying my best to keep in touch with them and to let them know that i am always be here for them no matter what. They are my family and i love them a lot as the way i love my husband and my son Dustin. I am looking forward to see her again after 2-3 years. Mom, i love you so much and happy mother's day!

Mother's Day Tag

Got this tag from Janet, thank you janet for tagging me. I really appreciate it. I miss my mom so much. Mother's day is coming so i am still thinking what to give for her on Mother's Day :-)

Here is the Poem that i like the most title "No Love Like a Mother's Love"
There is no love, like a mother's love,
no stronger bond on earth...
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.

A mother's love is forever strong,
never changing for all time...
and when her children need her most,
a mother's love will shine.

God bless these special mothers,
God bless them every one...
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they've done.

When her days on earth are over,
a mother's love lives on...
through many generations,
with God's blessings on each one.

Be thankful for our mothers,
for they love with a higher love...
from the power God has given,
and the strength from up above.

At last she had her puppies now!

Wow i cant believe that Princess is laboring right now. She had her first puppy at 2:14am. She will going to have 8-9 puppies, its already 6:16am but until now she still have 3 puppies come out. They have 5-6 more puppies to go. Maybe Mike wont go work today because he know i cant handle it alone. This is my first time to help the dog labor her puppies. Its a new experience for me, its fun but i am so tired right now. I still didn't sleep yet. :-) Princess is kind a worn out right now, she is weak, the 3 puppies are nursing and it went really good. The first 3 puppies coming out are all male, they are so cute hehe :-) i will post their picture later. In a few minutes i need to check her again maybe the 4th one will come out already.

Dustin personality is good. He dont fight to any kids, he dont grab any toys that is not belong to him. He is waiting for his turn and play with his own. Everytime he see kids crying, he try to comfort them and say "no cry". He is such a sweet little boy, there is a time that when he is playing at the kids playground at the mall and he see a kids fall down and he help the kid to stand up and the kids crying. Maybe that little kid is scared to dustin but dustin is been good boy. He just want to help that little kid to stand up. He likes older people, he likes to give shake hands and say hi to everyone eventhough he dont know them well. Dustin never gave me hard time eversince when he was born. He can sleep good at night without bothering me, he eat whatever he wants but of course i am keep watching what he eats because mostly he likes to eat sweets like chocolate and cookies. He is funny and sometimes silly that makes me laugh a lot. He likes to imitate our dog, he likes to lick my face and show his tongue. He likes to play peekaboo on me and riding horse on my back. I know its tired but playing with him makes me happy. All my tiredness are gone everytime i see him laughing and smiling. He likes taking picture too, he is such a smiley boy like me. So far so good he is really good kid :-) He is quiet and calm.

Mama's Boy?

Do you think being a mama's boy is not a good thing? I know many mommies out there treat their kids good and they show so much love especially if this is their first child. Just like me, Dustin is my first child and im so happy to have him in my life. I always give him so much attention, love and care and sometimes his daddy tell me that i spoiled dustin a lot. And it scares him because maybe when Dustin grow up, he will going to be a brat and mama's boy. Everytime Mike scolded Dustin, dustin came over me and give me a hug while his crying. He wants me to comfort him and even Mike say dont comfort him because he's been a bad boy but i cant help myself to hug him too and say its okay. He knows how to say sorry already so i teach him how to say it everytime he did wrong or make his daddy upset. He says "sorry mama", "sorry dadda". And give us a hug so its really good feeling you know. They will learn with their mistakes even they are still young. As long we still keep disciplining him in a good way so that he wont grow up as a bad boy or a brat.

Princess X-ray

This is the results of Princess X-ray for her pregnancy. As you can see here, it seems like she will going to have 8-9 puppies. Wow, that was a lot huh? I am sure, she felt heavy right now. The doctor said, maybe it would be easy for her to labor her puppies because the puppies are small and she has big hips too. Princess is still young, she's still 1 year old same as Thunder the male mastiff. But Princess weight 138 lbs right now and Thunder weight 160 lbs.

Preggy Mastiff

Our female mastiff is pregnant and few more days she will going to labor her puppies. Her tummy is getting more bigger right now and it seems like she already felt heavy. Last week i thought she will going to labor already because i was thinking that her water broke but i was wrong. That is false alarm hehe :-) i was just excited that time, maybe she go pee while laying down. Anyway, Mike wants to make it sure if Princess (our female mastiff) will going to labor her puppies or not that time. So he called the vet and get an X-ray for Princess. The doctor said, few more days she will going to have her puppies so we need to wait for few more days. I cant wait to see her puppies. We will going to sell it so if you are interested please contact us :-)

Mother and Son photos

This is a picture of me and dustin. We are getting ready to go to the meeting that time thats why we are wearing casual dress. Dustin wearing his tuxedo with a tie on at the first photo at the second one he is not wearing his tuxedo attire because we will going to my doctor appointment that day. I take picture of me and Dustin before we left. Mike dont like to be in the photo he is shy hehe :-) Dustin looks like a little men here, love this photo a lot.

Happy Kid

Dustin is one of the happiest kid i've known. He loves taking picture. As you can see here on this photos, he really had a great smile. I took this photo yesterday afternoon, he loves to play my camera and he wants me to take a pictures of him. Everytime i say "smile" he will give you the best smile he can have. Isn't that cute? his eyes is so chinky just like mine hehe :-)

I Need to accept it...

I need to accept that we lost our baby, i know its hard but thats what life it is. God has reason why he let this happen. Maybe he has plan to give us a beautiful child this year or maybe next year. Try again is the best thing to do anyway, dont lose hope, that is everyone telling me. I never lose hope yet, but im hoping that i will going to have a healthy baby next time. It said that most women, miscarriage happens only once. So if we both ready after 3-6 months, maybe we can try again.

When you are ready...
Your health is what matters. Wait until you feel fit in body and mind before trying to get pregnant again. Until then, enjoy the time you spend with your partner. Allow yourselves to enjoy each other. Try not to let getting pregnant become your only goal. Instead, look at pregnancy as one possible outcome of a loving relationship.

After the miscarriage

After the miscarriage, it takes me a while to feel better. Im still upset of course because we lost the one that we expected so much. Yesterday instead of having my personal book study, i told Renee that i dont feel like having book study because i still feel depressed and tired about what happened. We will try our book study again next week, will see if i feel better. I try to be okay now, try to get back to normal. Sometimes it hards, everytime i think about it, i feel very sad. I dont feel like doing anything. I just want to lay down, sit down and watch tv or watch video online. Play with Dustin and singing videoke just to entertain myself and keep me busy. Im glad i already tell everyone about the miscarriage thing at least its not hard for me to tell them personally if they will ask me about the baby.
