review: Coramille Learning Center


Raeka attended Coramille Learning Center last year for nursery level and I can really say that it was the best decision we made for our princess.

First day in Coramille Learning Center's Summer Program

She became excited to wake up everyday because "IT'S TIME FOR SCHOOL!"

Daddy Ron prepared her yummy and healthy hat for Nutrition Month activity.

She learned how to share and wait for her turn.

She absolutely loves her uniform and sharing the blocks with her classmates.

She appreciated the differences between her classmates.

Buwan ng Wika celebration.

She started working independently on her activities.

Raeka's attitude improved during her year with teacher Aimee, teacher Ruth and ate Gorcie.

She understood why we need trees to live.

And most importantly,

Raeka became so passionate to learn that she often asks me to give her learning activities after school.

Still learning even after the graduation rites.

I really appreciated all the hard work and cooperation we received from teacher Aimee and her team. We still communicate even though now that Raeka is already in big school. 

So for those seeking for activities for their toddler, you can never go wrong with Coramille Learning Center.

Organizing Tiny Toys in 4 Steps


Have you ever stepped on a piece of Lego?


Almost everyday!

I never knew that a tiny piece of toy could hurt so much!

When Raeka started collecting tiny pieces of toys, sadly our feet started collecting bruises too.

I already tried throwing all the tiny toys into 1 container but I find it harder to clean up afterwards. Some tiny toys gets lodged in between other toy containers, under the bed or even under the furniture. Oftentimes, she will cry because we cannot find the toy that she wants to play with.

I think we have every tiny toy possible, Lego blocks, Kinder surprise toys, Happy meal toys, Jolibee kiddie meal toys, party favors, and freebie toys from cereals.

Good news!

You do not need to be an Organizing Guru to keep your child's tiny toys in a safe place and not under your feet.

You will need 2 things:
- resealable bags
- a box / storage / container for the bags

1. Sort the toys according to their make. The Lego went into 1 pile while the Kinder surprise toys into another pile, and so on..

2. Place the toys into a resealable plastic bag. I have some unused breastmilk storage bags and a few sandwich bags.

3. When you are done placing the toys in the bags, place the bags inside a box.

4. Give your child 1-3 bags to play with. It will be easier to clean up rather than letting them scatter a box full of tiny toys.

Presenting Raeka's tiny toys collection!

Also, it is easier to pack 1 or 2 plastic/s of toys in her bag whenever we go out, instead of waiting for her to make up her mind minutes before going out.

Saves us time, her tears, and my sanity.

We would love to hear how you organize toys too, please leave a comment for us below.

Blessed be!

Hanging Knee Raise


Hanging Knee Raise does more than toning the lower ab muscles.

It also builds strength on the hip flexors and the upper back muscles. 

I also find it easier when I squeeze my thighs together as I raise my knees to my chest. 

Some helpful tips I got from Pros:

1. Move slow
Pay more attention to the quality of the form over quantity. It is better to do 3-5 repetitions when you are just a beginner to this move.

2. Do not swing your body
Using the momentum or swinging your lower body to raise your knees will defeat the purpose of the exercise.

3. Engage your core.
I think this is a standard tip for everyone who exercises. See my previous post on how you can do this.

4. Point your toes.
As you lower your leg, point your toes downwards. This will help your legs maintain a straight line and avoid your legs from swinging behind your body.

5. Activate your upper back muscles.
Aside from the obvious that you must have a firm grip on the bar, you must activate your upper back muscles. Pull your shoulder blades down and keep your elbows locked.

Challenge yourself today with this exercise and you will definitely feel the good burn afterwards.

Blessed be.
