Since my parents have been back from Cali to attend my Graduation they have been very good with my little human Mimi. A little toooooo good actually. They have been pampering her with new swimsuits, clothes and accessories. I seriously only bought maybe 3 pairs of clothes for her in her entire 3 years of living. Everything was usually a gift, a hand me down or from her Mommyla and Daddylo. Since I was very busy with graduation requirements and pretty much the graduation, I was so thankful that my parents were there to take care of Mimi. My mom likes giving her baths and so pretty much took over that job. My dad on the other hand would be the one that feeds her since she likes sitting next to grandpa during meals. My mom and dad are pretty much doing everything that I am suppose to be doing. It has only been 2 weeks and I can see a change in Mimi. She started to cry when she doesn't get what she wants and pretty much started acting bratty. My dad would always be in her side.
So I need to start putting my foot down. I need to reclaim my throne because if this continues she will lose all respect for me and won't listen to me anymore. I do not want to have a spoiled child. In the Philippines, nannys are pretty common and usually a relative would help you in taking care of your child. But in America, nope nope nope. America has a very fast paced living. Seriously I wake up at 8am almost everyday and the next time I look at the clock it's 7pm and it's time for dinner. Everything happens so fast and everyone is super busy. I can't rely my mommy duties to anyone else but me, myself, and I.
So I want to have a legit schedule to follow since right now I'm not busy. I have all the time in the world really. This is a mommy blogger and toddler schedule checklist that I made to help me manage my time and energy. I hope that this can also help other moms to take charge!

Here is a WORD and PDF file incase you want to add or edit anything
This is also good for me since I am really not the type to have a routine or to follow schedules. I usually do what ever I feel is right and that is that. I hope this sticks :)
