Day 8, Observing a café and death to adverbs (not quite)

She stepped inside, uncertain. That café has caught her eye in the past week, but it was too rushed, too quick. Now, she’s alone, with no appointments to fulfil. There … Continue reading

Umaga at gabi... #toddlerplay #toddlernarratives
Isang hindi kilalang babae, naglabas ng sama ng loob sa tsokolate.
Dear strawberry girl, I wish your grandpa was able to meet you. He would've been a year through his retirement. For now, smile for the world. I never got to spend a lot of time with your grandpa. Your Dad and I will do our best to spend as much time with you as we can. #memories #toddlernarratives
What's left of the strawberries for the momma. Little one attacked the strawberries. I don't know how she did that after eating 3 bananas. She didn't even like this the first time I gave her some. We just bought again coz for days now she's telling us stawbewwies, stawbewwies. #toddlerfood #toddlernarratives
My lazy lunch prep would render keto people catatonic. #gamerchef had to be somewhere, so I am in charge of lunch. After cleaning and leaving the little one to nap, I am tired. I chopped a giant carrot and two potatoes from the market, put some olive oil, salt, pepper, and basil, popped it in the over, and called it a day. I thought about cooking some eggs and heating rice, but I took a nap instead. Lol. Will give her a protein fix later, she had oatmeal and milk for breakfast anyway. Also 3 bananas and a bunch of strawberries for snack. She eats well, but this is probably a growth spurt. I thought I'd make a frittata with the leftovers, but we have none. We ate it all. Lol. Veggies from our suki at the Sunday market are sooo good. #toddlerfood #toddlernarratives
Father and daughter at lunch. We had a very long lunch with the help of a sketch pad, different colored pens, and Frozen soundtrack. Restaurant was full, but at least it helped drown out our toddler's sound. Lol. She loves food! After this, its team bahay all the way. We stayed in and had homemade pancit canton. Too bad their bread ran out before we can buy some to eat at home. Ate said we should've told her we wanted some so she could've set them aside. Oh well, we'll be back, just not too often. #toddlernarratives #toddlerfood #valentine
