What's Going On

It's been a looooong time since I made my last entry. I felt bad I didn't have any single post in 2011.  But looking back, 2011 is such a busy year for me. Having Andre and Jaden have completely changed my life for the better of course but that means I don't have much extra time.  Even if I have a nanny, it doesn't feel like I have one because each of us is focused on one of the Twins at all times.  In the early months of my Twins, even bathroom breaks were considered a luxury, much more a decent shower.

I only had a reliever when we went back to the Philippines.  Actually, I had many relievers because of relatives who are excited to see and play with the Twins and volunteered in taking care of them. We stayed in Philippines, both in Manila and Bataan for about five (5) months.  During my free times, I took the opportunity to take baking and cake decorating lessons.

As soon as we got back here, the Babies got sick on and off for about three (3) weeks.  I also started the preparation for my Twins' 1st birthday party.  After the party, I got busy preparing for Christmas.  It was my intention to launch my home-based business before Christmas to take advantage of the holiday season business opportunities.  But between Twin's birthday and Christmas time is such a short-time to prepare considering that I'm still a full time mom.  I was so glad that I had the chance to participate in the Museum of Islamic Art Bazaar to make up for the missed opportunity.  It gave me the chance to showcase my baked products to wider audience.  It also gave my friends a chance to try my products by buying retail quantities.  The bazaar will be a regular activity, happening every first Saturday of the month except on summer months of July, August and September. So that's something that will keep me busy for the next few months, aside from taking care of the Twins.
