MIA StartUp Babies

So, I’ve been MIA from blogging this week because of a couple of problems:

1.) Baby Bear got colds and a mild cough — probably from teething? or from a potential dust allergy because we just got a brand new car seat that probably wasn’t cleaned well 😦 This was a bit of a stressful incident for me because it was the first time she was sick so I didn’t now how to handle things. I had to call and ask my mommy friends for advice. A special shout out to My Yummy Mummy for being my lifeline.

2.) I didn’t have a helper around the house so it was just me and the nanny.

3.) I had so many pending stuff from my business/es. I was drowning with paper work backlog.

4.) The so-few free time that I had, I spent reading stuff online about car seats and how to get the baby from liking the car seat. It is simply so hard to just let the baby cry-it-out. My ancestors would be so disappointed in me… I need to channel my inner Tiger Mom 🙂

5.) I was also busy planning Baby Bears’ 1st birthday party. In Manila, a birthday party here is like… planning a wedding? an engagement? It’s like a product launch! When did kiddie parties stopped being so simple, anyway? 🙂 This totally deserves another blog post.

6.) Lastly, we are going on a trip after Baby Bears’ 1st birthday. A plane trip, mind you! So, I am being a panicky and OC mom and coming up with lists of what to bring, what to do, and busy reading up on how to keep the baby QUIET in the plane!!!

I want to apologize in advance though as I will probably not blog much again this week because my nanny will be taking a 4 day vacation leave to attend the graduations of her two daughters. (Hooray and congrats to them!) 🙂 4 days may not seem like a lot… but to me, it is… only because I have a lot of things on my plate… the nanny VL timing just wasn’t right.

On a brighter note, who am I to complain about getting to spend all this time with my baby girl. 🙂 My Baby Bear is almost a year old… at least I get the chance to make a few more “before 1” memories with her. Time flies… Must.Not.Blink!!! 🙂
