Mommy Moments: Homes

Jul 1, 2011

mommy moments

I envy moms who do not need to work because I want to be at home and take care of my kids. But since life is hard and money is scarce, he he, I have to help my husband with our finances. But even though we work almost all of our waking hours, we love staying at home whenever we can.

We have two houses, our dream house in Montalban Rizal which was ravaged by Ondoy and which we are building slowly but surely. We go there during long weekends or Christmas or Easter vacation. We plan to move there next year. But after this typhoon Falcon, we are re-thinking the plan. Below are my kids having breakfast at the house. You may ask why I used this picture, and its just because we do not have a table at our current house and my kids just love the novelty of eating here, he he.
Now, this other house can best be described by the Eraserheads song, Toyang. "Bahay nami'y maliit lamang, pero pero malinis to.."". We always say its so tiny that when you trip in the living room you will end up in the kitchen! And our bedroom is just an arms length away, ha ha! My husband grew up here and we rent it for a very minimal amount from his aunt. But just the same, it is home. We moved here when Drexelle was just three years old and both Danniel and Ishi have never known another home. The picture below was taken during Danniel's birthday party preparation. Yes, a small house means little space but it also means that makes us very close, even literally!
I hope you enjoyed our home and I wish you would invite us in yours too!

    Oh... having a small house isn't a problem to me at all. That's because we do have one, too. Nakiki-apartment nga lang kami kasi stranger lang dito eh. The most important thing is for the home to be filled with life, laughter, love, and food! Lol. Without either one of them, it really isn't a home. Yours is a perfect example! I am so glad to have come over! :)

    My first time joining Mommy Moments by the way! I hope to see you at my simple home! :)

    It's not the bigness or smallness that makes a home a home. It's the love that abounds in the home that makes it a safe and sweet haven for the entire family. Happy MM, and thanks for the visit!

    Ang sweet ng family pic, I love small spaces too, mas gusto ko yun kita ko lahat a isang lingon. I have a toddler and prefer to see her around since I work from home.
    I remember my HS days with your E-heads quote ;-)

    Dropping by from MM, here's my entry

    Small house.... Big house... doesn't matter as long as you have a happy and intact family. The way I see it you got both :)
