First Day of School SY 2015-2016

I was looking at this photo earlier at my phone and it makes me sad that my kids have grown up a lot! I am so grateful and blessed  that I get to be a stay-at-home-mom.  It might not be a cloud nine everyday (you know what I mean right, lol) but it's worth every second I spend my time with them.  

 Today is there first day of school and as I prepared their breakfast, U wanted to cry because I felt a very strong emotion  that I couldn't  explain.  I thought that as they grow older, it would be easier for me to  send them to school but no! It doesn't get any easier at all.  The only consolation I have is seeing their smiles  and  their excitement of going back to school.  
 They never really cried when I sent them to Kindergarten on the first day but I did!  I don't cry now when I get back home but still hard  for me to see them  go on the first day.  Today is half day and they have free dress day.  Tomorrow will be the start of a full day at school and wearing uniforms.
 Anyway, we went to school early today to avoid the rush of so many  students pouring in.  We brought all their supplies last Friday when we  registered  so it was an easy day today.  I can't believe my son is now in third frade and my daughter is in middle school.  Ahhhh time really flies!
My daughter  woke up so early and made this  note for her teacher.
A pose with her classmate before I left.
As I tyoed this, my heart is heavy but at the same time  I am excited for their new adventures in learning.  Talking about mixed emotions eh?  I don't know, maybe I am just too attached to my kids that I have this separation anxiety everytime they go.
In ten years, we only left these two to a caregiver ince when we attended a Navy Bal few years ago.  Ut was really hard for me being away from them and it was just  for few hours.  I don't think I will be able to take it if we will be sparated for  weeks or even days,  Ih boym I better stop before tears  flood my keyboard.  Have a great  day everyone!

Dog Sitters: Summer Job for the Kiddos

During summer break, my kids always find ways to do to earn a little  money for them to spend on things while on vacation. 
 Our neighbor hired them to  take care of her fur babies while  she's at work.  The kiddos don't mind doing it, in fact they  love it because they love dogs.
 They even told her  that they can take care of them for free but  our neioghbor  paid them anyway.
 Their  dogs are like beef cakes, they are beautiful and very gentle.
They have labs and retriever which are very  kid-friendly.  I told the kids that they can spend  the money the way they want to but they said that  they want to add it in their savings which  is  adorable.

Go Farther, Dream Bigger, and Look Good Doing It! #liveLikeHeroes

Being a blogger and media influencer is great because you get to work with  different  companies.  Most of the companies I work  with  are great.  This is the advantage of  working online, you don't only work for one company but  many.  It also feel rewarding when you see the company evolved and progress and the best part of it is, you get to witness them change for the better.  One of the companies that I truly like is the Warrior Poet.
They carry boy clothing that are made with high quality materials. They recently changed their website url from .com to.clothing which is nice. Their website url speaks of what they are now, which is providing clothing for boys. If you have a son, you know that there's not many companies that only cater for boy clothing.
As part of their blogger program, we were given a shirt   as  a promotion for their newly revamped website.  I chose this Sweater Vest design for my son.
I love how it is designed with a tie and vest.  It makes it look sophisticated and stylish for any little boy.
Look how big  the smile of my little  young man is.  He love shirt designs that are unique.  I hughly recommend their  clothing for boys.  They are stylish and very well-made and  has quality craftmanship in every piece.  
Today, Warrior Poet launched their video which is based on a true story.  You may watch it and be inspired.

EJ Can Change the World

During the  book fair last year, my son asked me if he can buy a set of  books about the US president so I bought it for him.  
One of the personalized children's book that I See Me! sent me for review is this EJ Can Change the World that my son really love.  It's amazing how simple words and sentences can give  hope and  perspectives to kids.  
Even though this book is not on my son's  reading level anymore, he loves it  just because it is quite unique.
His favorite part is  the page where his picture appeared.  He thought it's really sweet.  
I See Me! has a lot of back to school collection such as LunchboxesPuzzlesColoring BooksPlacemats,   Stickers, and Growth Charts! You can find just about anything for special children in your life.
