The Mommy Career

Im so glad to note that mommies are going back to basics these days — breastfeeding is advocated, all-natural (and sometimes even organic) food, baby slings to help parent bonding and attachment and many more. I love that! I am a breastfeeding advocate even if I didnt last long in breastfeeding. I plan to breastfeed my future children longer. I dont let my kids eat processed food – no “baby” food. I let them eat what we serve in the table, makes me more conscious on what to prepare really.

Shall We Dance?

I have a little secret to share with you – I love dancing. I love ballroom dancing. People might classify ballroom dancing as an oldies dance but I beg to disagree. Watch Dirty Dancing 2, or the movie of Jennifer Lopez and Richard Gere “Shall We Dance” – that is ballroom dancing! Unfortunately, as much as I love to dance, one thing that frustrates me is that you need to have a (good) dance partner when you do it. The male partner is the one controlling and guiding the dance, so you need someone good. And, chances are, when I find someone good enough to be my partner, he is either gay or too short for me. So I turn to the husband ;). He actually likes to dance, he is just “shy” and uncomfortable doing it. You would have to kill him to let him in a dance class. So we turn to dance instructional videos which we can watch at home. I like to browse the videos in DanceCrazy.com since they have great instructional videos with a range of dances Id like to learn. I’d first like to try out doing the Salsa!

Do you know dancing helps you lose weight? And did you know I danced a lot in concerts, plays and productions when I was a teenager? I was already a BIG eater, but I danced a lot – about 2 hours everyday. And it was really cardio dancing. Maybe I need to do that again.

I really like this Quote.

I got this from Stacy Julian’s blog:

“We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty,
some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all
have learned to live together in the same box.”

Robert Fulghum (b. 1937)
author, pastor

be you. be colorful.
get along!
