Last weekend was short but sweet. On Saturday, the hubby and I took baby NJ to her pedia for her anti-pneumonia and anti-flu shots. When we got home, we left her to her grandparents’ care and went out again to finish some errands.
Last weekend was quite busy. On Saturday, the hubby and I took baby NJ to her pedia in Manila for yet another vaccine shot. (This time, it’s Hepa A vaccine and we paid P3,500 for it which was already inclusive of consultation fee.) The rest of the day was spent finishing errands.
Our Sunday was not so happy because baby NJ had a minor accident. She tripped while walking (ang bilis nya kasi maglakad, mana sakin, waaaah!) and bumped her knees on the ground and her left forehead on the sidewalk. She cried really loud and my mommy heart got broken into pieces for a few minutes. Her knees didn’t get scratched but her left forehead was a different story. While it didn’t swell, it turned red and got a small scratch. We immediately put an ice pack on it to soothe it. We also observed NJ in the next hours for other symptoms. Fortunately, she didn’t have any and even returned to her normal self just as soon as she stopped crying.
Last weekend was a bit busy. On Saturday, I accompanied the hubby to Quezon City for our car’s preventive maintenance. It took a few hours before we were allowed to drive the car again and since we got hungry while waiting, we opted to dine at one of the restos in Banawe before going home in Bacoor. Our Sunday was spent at the condo where we did a mini photoshoot of baby NJ and her gifted clothes just for fun. She’s one lucky baby because she gets a lot of nice dresses, tops, and bottoms from our family and friends, with or without a special occasion.
I guess up until our rainbow baby is at least two years old and tiny no more, I’m gonna call her “baby NJ” on this blog. I still can’t believe how we got so lucky for having a baby at this point in my and the hubby’s married life and at this juncture in world history where COVID-19 has changed the way people do things and look at life in general. But before I become more emo, let me talk about the long weekend that passed.
Our long weekend was extra special because the hubby and I got to take baby NJ to Tagaytay, her first out-of-town trip that involved no doctors and vaccines, haha. She wasn’t able to have a picture with the famous Taal Lake though, because the two establishments we visited — Cliffhouse and Bag of Beans — didn’t allow entry to people 15 years old and below in compliance with IATF health protocols. Actually, we never planned to dine inside those restos, we just wanted her to have a decent photo with the famous lake, but to no avail.
Have you tried dining out lately? We have on a few occasions, the most recent one was last Saturday at Ramen Yushoken because we were craving for ramen and not just any ramen but their very own tantanmen. So, the hubby and I drove to Alabang to eat tantanmen and run some errand for my side of the family. We were not surprised at all that Ramen Yushoken still had a queue outside despite the threats of the virus. We waited for a good 40 minutes before we got seated. We were extra careful, of course. It was a quick but very satisfying lunch. On Sunday, my brother Dan treated the family to dinner because he has recently been promoted at work. We had KFC and Jollibee (two of the fastfood brands we patronize). We capped off our dinner with the desserts (i.e. cheesecake cups and cookies) he ordered from his enterprising friends.
The rest of the weekend was spent with our baby NJ whom we love to pieces!
After ten years, I’ve finally gone back to writing weekend stories again. Hopefully, I could do this regularly na. If not, ibig sabihin, na-busy or nagprocrastinate na naman si Mommy Edel, hahaha. Anyway, ours was a long weekend as we took a leave from work yesterday to have some down time and celebrate our little angel Pippo’s 8th birthday in heaven. Gosh, it’s been eight years already! So dapat pala may second grader na ako ngayon, waaaah.
