Do You Remember? (A Cetaphil Giveaway!)

I personally do not remember the last time I felt as carefree as my daughter seems to be on a daily basis. I think her biggest problems in life right now involve how to convince me that eating candy on a daily basis is good for her and that, no, she cannot have too many Hello Kitty items in her closet. (Yes, for all intents and purposes, Syrena has her own closet. And her own shoe rack.)

While it might sound depressing to hear that I have completely forgone my own carefree moments, the good news is that a single giggle or a mere dimpled smile from Syrena is enough to make me feel better, no matter what kind of mood I'm in.


I dare you not to smile right now.


blue Hello Kitty shirt from SM Kids Fashion


grey animal beanie - gift from the babydaddy's girlfriend


white Hello Kitty shorts from SM Kids Fashion

Got all of these Hello Kitty items on sale and Syrena even checked our shopping bags before leaving the mall, just to make sure they were in there! #smartkid


silver sandals from Sugar Kids at SM Department Store


Like mother, like daughter.
As always. :p

Aside from making strange poses during outfit shots, another thing that Syrena got from me is my morbidness. Lol. One night, after watching "Finding Nemo" for the first time, I asked Syrena what she thought of the movie. "I didn't like the ending," she said. "Why? How did you want it to end?" I asked. Her answer? "The sharks come and eat all of the fish." :)) Epic.



Carefreeness aside, another child-like thing that I have completely forgone is baby smooth skin. Since my mother never really took care of my skin while I was growing up, I have always made it a point to take very good care of Syrena's skin.

Because of this, I have used nothing but Cetaphil on her ever since we moved here two years ago. Fortunately, Cetaphil is mild enough to suit even the skin of newborns. :) Don't believe me? Try it out for yourself by joining this giveaway:

Good luck! :) And, oh, before I go... this is how Gerd treats my kid: 


Who needs a gym if you know someone with a 3-year-old? :p

  2. I miss the days when "hello kitty" was a life for me! lol xx haha =)) and the days when I used to have a very nice baby-skin, with not a single pimple , doing stupid random things only kids can get away with, not having to worry so much about how I look. AHAHAHA x

  4. And after reading that post, I need to make a mental note to at least have one carefree moment within the following weeks. I am a complete worry wart and the frustrating thing is that I didn't used to be! But I guess it just comes from life experiences and such, but before I go all emo on you-point is these days it just takes a lot more effort to worry less!

    A friend of mine used Cetaphil ever since she was young and up until now she has really good skin, tried and tested! :D

  6. i'm an 80's kid. so i miss those games we used to play outside the streets, like tagu-taguan, patintero, tumba preso, siato, etc. kids today didn't experience it coz of the new age technology we have.

  21. My childhood is really, really nice that I missed almost everything about it. I missed my childhood friends. We see each other every afternoon and we used to play from 4pm till sundown. After eating our dinner, we go out of the house again and tell stories about, what else? Ghosts and ghouls!!! I also missed my elementary barkada. After classes, we go to the rice fields and collect "suso". Hihi! And I missed reading my "Bata Batuta". They're still being kept in my mom's house. I'll get it one day and read those to my son. :)
