Quality time makes every child “Hapee”

Like most parents, we all can agree that kids spell love differently that’s T-I-M-E. And I’ve proved it many times with my son… We have a bedtime routine that we call “Thank You Jesus” wherein I ask my child to draw everything that he’s thankful for the whole day.

My husband and I we’re amazed, na hindi yung new toy ang madalas nyang unang sabihin kundi yung time spent together..

Hapee Time with important people in our child’s life

Like last holiday (November 2) , we surprised him with a sleep-over visit to his mommy-la (lola, my mom-in-law). We rarely visit them and we only sleep over in their place almost just once a year.

“Thank You Jesus, for letting us visit Mommy-la” -Zee

Quality time with us and the people Zee loves makes him really happy, not the fancy toys nor the new clothes.

Indeed we can learn a lot from children, that they value relationships and memories more than anything else.

 

Hapee Time with Mommy and Daddy

If our children love and enjoy spending time with relatives, how much more joy and happiness it brings when mom and dad sits on the floor and play with them. Sabi nga  nung isang preschool teacher sa amin noon, “You are your child’s favourite toy”. Yes mommies, tayong parents ang favourite nilang laruan or kalaro.

Playtime

Being a work-from-home parents, we are honestly guilty na kasama namin ang anak namin 24/7 pero we are not 100% present because of household chores and work to do at home. That’s why we need to be intentional and do the extramile to give undivided time and not just quantity time but quality time with our son.

This is one of my favorite quote as a mother. That I need to set a special time for my family, for my child, without any interruptions. I need to put that in my calendar at isama talaga sa budget ang bonding time – playhouse, park, ice cream day and vacation.

Sharing with you my son enjoying his playtime with us (Didi & Mimi)

 We forgot for few hours our workload, plates to wash and pile of clothes to laundry. We slept a little late that day para magawa yung ibang tasks and deadline na naiwan namin. But as they say, time spent with family is always worth it. When you see that happy smile from your child’s face na may kasama pang hug and kiss, mapapasabi ka na indeed, all is worth it.

(We usually do not capture a lot of photos during our #familydate and vacation to be really present and be in the moment)

Being a mother taught me to be selfless, to prioritize someone else’s happiness more than my own.

In every mother’s life, we can all agree to the sacrifices we make everyday, the labor of love, the 24/7 mom duties without any pay, that extraSmile service of love we give to our children is never wasted, they can see it – that hug mommy, that kiss from our kids are assurance that we are doing a great job.

And to keep that smile on Zee’s face always brightly shiny, I always give the extra mile in taking care of his teeth.

Mommy Tip: How do I keep Zee’s teeth nice, clean and free from cavities?

1. We brush his teeth 3x a day.

2. We use pedia-dentist approved toothpaste (Hapee Kiddie Toothpaste)

3. We visit his dentist every 6 months

  1. Di napapalitan ng anumang materyal na bagay ang oras at kasiyahan na nabibibigay natin sa mga anak!. Minsan lang sila bata kaya nilulubos ko din kapag magkakasama kame at ako ang trip nilang kulitin. Hehe. 😊❤

  2. Thanks for sharing this Mommy, kaya ako hanggat kaya ko, di baleng wala nkong me time ,ikino consider ko na nga pong as a “ME TIME” ang pagbibigay ng quality time sa junakis ko. super sarap po sa pakiramdam na masaya at ramdam ng mga anak natin na mahal na mahal natin sila, <3 <3 <3

  3. “We usually do not capture a lot of photos during our #familydate and vacation to be really present and be in the moment”

    Sobrang agree to this Mommy! Sometimes after the bonding marerealize nalang naming na “ay di pala tayo nakapagpicture” But it is so much amazing kasi mas focus sa moments shared with the family. Also like Quality Time love language

  4. Yes momshie quality time is very important with our family nanjn ung bonding moment ntin saknila na hindi mapapalitan ng ano pa man… yun ang memories na di mwawala sa mga anak ntin ang pagspend ng time sakanila n ddlin nila hanggang sakanilang pagtanda…

  5. As a mom, me and my two kids always have our bondings together esp when weekends. It’s a very precious to me that I create moments something like playing and had fun with them. I believed that it made them more special and it improves their personality. Thanks for sharing mommy your quality time together with your son. 😊 Your such an inspiration to us! God bless 😇

  6. Woooowww!!! i admire you baby Zee😘😘😘
    You know na how to value your time with your family😍😍😍
    nakakaamaze ka baby😍😍😍👏👏👏

  7. Bilang mommy i make sure na my quality time ako with my kids. Priority ko pa din ang playtime kasama sila. Kahit busy sa gawaing bahay always ko sinisingit yung pakikipg laro sa kanila. Kapag happy kasi ang aking mga chikiting nabubuo ang araw ko.

  8. Now as a working mom, I see to it na lagi pa din kaming may quality time ng mga anak ko. Nakikipaglaro ako sa kanila, I listen to their stories or kung anong nangyari sakanila that day. Happy memories are important to them.

  9. Agree, thank you for the tips mommy, bonding with our kids is the most precious times na mararanasan natin habang sila ay maliliit pa, take it easy and enjoy lang habang adorable pa sila, minsan kasi kpag binata na sla or dalaga hindi na gnun ka tight ung bonding pero not all nman

  10. Super true. Wala ng papantay pa sa kasiyahan na maibibigay natin sa mga anak natin kundi ang quality time. Maramdaman nila na nandyan tayo sa tabi nila at maisip nila na importante sila..

  11. true, wla nang hihigit pa sa pagbibigay nang quality time sa ating mga anak. para maramdaman nila ang pagmamahal nang isang ina sa kanilang mga anak.

  12. yes sobrang true na quality time talaga ang mas dapat nating iconsider for the kids. Kasi natutuwa sila sa oras na kasama natin silang naglalaro or kahit anu pa mang gawaing sabay nating ginagawa kasama sila. Kahit ang mga simpleng appreciattion natin sa mga maliliit na good deeds nila ay super halaga sa mga bata. yung tipong big deal sa kanila ang malamang masaya din tayong kasama silang magenjoy sa mga bagay na gusto nila. it really means a lot to them thats why i make sure na kahit busy maghapon may time pa din kaming magbonding sa kaunting oras na matitita sakin sa maghapon like we will watch and enjoy movies, play with their toys or minsan take selfies together na kung anu anong pose lang.
    truly that a Quality Time is a Hapee Kiddies and A happy Mommy

  13. Walang material na bagay ang tutumbas sa pagmamahal at pagbibigay ng oras sa ating mga anak.. Sabi nga nila minsan lang sila bata kaya sabayan Muna. Oras ang isang pinakamahalang bagay na maibibigay natin sa atin mga anak kaya Ill make sure that I always have a quality time together..

  14. “Schedule your priorities” guilty ako dito.. 😢 kahit SAHM ako kulang na kulang yung naibibigay kong time para sa daughter ko dahil gusto ko tapusin agad lahat ng gawain ko..
    Thank you for the tips Mommy.

  15. I am humbly privileged to become a hands on full time mom to my 3 sons for 21 years and I have NO regrets when I made that decision–giving up.work in exchange of taking care of them fulk time running the households without nanny.
    Seeing them growing a polite, humble, kind and loving children is our joy. It is more important than focusing on what achievements they get. Though the latter is important, it is always good to develop a Jesus-like character in them. So ang early stage napakaimportant sa development ng bata kaya mahalaga na ang magulang ang nakakasama nila. Hangga’t maliliit pa, value the moment, create happy memories in their memory bank that they will carry it until they get adult…dahil when they become adult, that’s the time that you cannot hold ofntheir time anymore..busy na sila just my kids now who is 21, 19 and 14. Masaya pag nagkakasama at buo kami, andami nila nabablalikang masasayang kwento nung maliliit pa sila 😁

  16. Mas the best talaga na mafefeel nila ang pagaalaga mo kasi dun lang sila masaya kaya pag lumabas yung baby ko lahat ng oras ko ilaan ko para sa kanya.

  17. Yes..Tama k momshies n we should make sure that we have quality time with our kids …it’s the best bonding that we can do with then 😍😘

  18. Ito talaga yung d best bilang isang nanay.. Ang bigyan ng oras ang mga anak natin kahit ganu tayo ka busy.. Thanks for some tips momshie.. Ang sarap talaga maging magulang lalo na pag nakikita nating masaya ang mga anak natin..

  19. Nice tips momshie .. I am a full time mom lahat taLaga ng time binibigay ko sa aking munting princesa kasi “MINSAN LANG SILA bata” isa pa mas importante sa pamilya ang quality time dahil dun mas nagiging matatag ung samahan nyo bilang pamilya at mag ina ..

  20. iba din ang saya ng mga bata pag may Quality time mas nararamdaman nila ang LOVE and CoMFORT ng Family na lalo nagbibigay ng confidence sa mga bata 😍😍😍

  21. Quality time napakaimportante nito sa isang pamilya dito nabubuo ang saya, ang pagmamahal at ang kulitan. Pag may quality time nararamdaman mo na mahal ka ng parents mo hindi naman po hadlang mga works at gawain natin sa QT para sa mga anak natin dahil balang araw sila ang mag quaquality time para alagaan tayo kahit may mga pamilya at trabaho na sila. ❤

  22. Kahit madami ako gawain bahay.. Ill make sure na madami pa dn ako time sakin mga kids. Maglaro.. Kht kalat sila ng kalat hinahayaan ko na lng. Kasi minsan lng sila maging bata e.

  23. Quality time with kids is a time well spend dahil dadalhin nila ito hanggang sa kanilang paglaki at para lumaki silang maayos dahil hindi sila maghahanap ng kasagutan ng mga tanong nila sa labas dahil andyan tayo upang magabayan sila ng tama. Kya kahit na may trabaho at pagod lage i set ang priorities kahit na mahirap dahil hindi naman sila palaging bata
