Daddy Moments

A late post for :

mommy moments

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful fathers ...

What makes Bea's Papa special? Here's HIS story ...

My husband agreed to be a house husband after our daughter was born for about 2 years . It was a decision he had to make for our daughter. He was brave enough to swallow his pride and ego for her.

When I was pregnant, he quit his job and started a small business. During my pregnancy until I gave birth, the business was just barely doing okay. It was not as successful as we expected it to be. I was supposed to be the one staying home, but when Bea was 2 months old, I was offered a job, one with a better position and a better salary. We had to be practical, but at the same time, we couldn't entrust my daughter to anyone else. We both decided that I go back to work and he give up the business and be Bea' s daddynanny!

In our society, men staying at home were frowned upon. My husband had to deal with that and at the same time he had to deal with his own insecurities. Even if I say it was okay 'coz he has a job -- to take care of our princess ...  he still felt bad for not bringing in some money in our family. Yet he was able to cope with it and did a pretty good job. 

My daughter grew up well ... she was never sick ... she only went to the doctor for her vaccines. The Obsessive Compulsiveness of my husband came in handy .... 

His patience finally paid of after 2 years when he was given an opportunity to start his own business. This time it was something that he really likes -- motorcycles!! And thankfully for 2 years now his motorcycle shop is doing well. ( I guess ... hehehe)

So thankful for the sacrifice he did for us ... I don't mind that my daughter's first word was actually "papa" ....

here are my treasures ...

Messy-Go-Around 2 -- White Forest Mess!

This is my daughter's favorite cake:

This is her making a white forest mess::

This is the cake after:

I also love this cake. I think, this is the best white forest cake I've ever tasted. 
It's one of the best cakes here in Baguio. 
It's not too sweet.. The cake is really soft. 
And it's quite cheap, too (around 280 Php for a 10inch cake).
It's available at the bakeshop of Holiday Supermarket (Bokawkan Road, Baguio City).
I also like their banana bread (it's only 100 Php for one big loaf)

MM: Love You Papa

I haven't had time to write something for 

mommy moments

for quite sometime ... 
I've been a bit busy but I'm glad to be back!

Here's my share for this week ...

My daughter can't write letters yet, 
but if she could , 
I think she'd make a note like this:

plain and simple but extremely sweet!

That is how I would describe my daughter and my husband's relationship


I'm super amazed that my daughter got a lot of her habits 
(even the quite annoying ones) from her father. 
They're so similar .... oh well, I guess that's why I love them both, plain and simple!
