c is for cousins

out + about, family, weekend

my cousins are two of my favorite people in the world! apart from being family, they are also my friends + my playmates. back when we still live in my grandparent’s house, i get to spend most of my time with ate shane + kuya sean. we’d watch cartoons in my room, or go biking in the afternoon. it was really a lot of fun. now that mum + i live in a different house, i do not get to see my cousins often, that is why i really enjoy the time we spent together. just like when we went for a visit 2 sundays ago. i played computer games with them + i totally enjoyed plants vs. zombies, as well that fishy game, feeding frenzy.

we also danced to the tune of our favorite song, opa gangnam style, with matching strobe lights that my tito peejay installed in their living room! it was really fun. we also enjoyed an afternoon walk in the neighborhood with my mum + got the chance to see the animals in one of the neighbors. would you believe that the neighbor had a pet monkey caged just beside their fence? kuya sean even tried shaking hands with it! 🙂

we went to the memorial park later in the afternoon to visit my mama + papa. we only stayed there for awhile since the park closes at 6pm and we were not able to leave home sooner. we ran around + took photos with mum + my titas. i bet you can tell that we had loads of fun. this is how sunday afternoons are meant to be spent, i just hope we’ll be able to do this again soon! 🙂

my favorite things, toys, balls

ball is probably one of my favorite toys in the world! i can have endless hours of fun just by throwing balls around the house or shooting them in the hoop, using this basketball playset that my ninang jackie gifted me for christmas. if you’ve been here on my corner on occasions, am sure you’ve read a number of posts about balls. they are, after all, a little guy’s best friend. remember that cool barney song? 😉

my favorite things, toys, balls

i enjoy playing ball in many ways: throwing them around, playing with  my mum and making use of our screen door as a make-shift goal when i wanted to play soccer! but one of my most favorite will have to be swimming in a pool of balls whenever mum brings me to a play area in the city! check my post about my recent trip to activefun here.

Neutral Color Choices for a Baby’s Room

children's beddings, beddings, baby

With a little one on the way, there is no detail of the baby’s room a parent won’t consider carefully. Everything from the baby bedding to the door knobs is sure to be carefully appraised. One of the key decorating choices is the color of the walls, furniture and fabrics of the room. While parents want to give their child’s room personality, reselling a home with powerful colors may prove challenging. However, careful thought can lead parents to colors that are easy to change and appropriate for a child’s room.

Bedding is a key means to introduce color into a room without changing the room itself. Consider solid colors and textured fabrics to add zest to a baby’s room. For more flare, animal print bedding has become popular in recent years. For children who are a little older and have favorite movies and tv-shows, story-time bedding is another option for adding personality to a child’s room.

Painting the furniture or changing door and drawer knobs can dramatically alter the character of a room. Traditionally, boys’ rooms are colored blue or green, while girls’ rooms can be pink or yellow. However, there are no hard rules, and parents are encouraged to choose colors that please their children. Hardware in the room, whether on doors, windows or furniture, can provide an important accent to the colors on the walls and bedding as well.

Parents should focus on the bedding and furniture of a baby’s room for the best decorative results. Changing the color of walls can add much character, but risks making the room non-neutral and more difficult to sell. However, the furniture and baby bedding can be used to add character to a room without altering the room itself.
