First Time Expectant Parents vs Second Time Expectant Parents vs Third Time…

We’re thinking of having another baby next year and I think it will be as challenging as how it was with our first child. I’m sure a lot of second time expectant parents know what I’m talking about. Based on talks with friends, not a single one of them said that it gets easier the second time around. Sure, you would already know the basics, like how to change a diaper, how and when to give them solid food, or that breastmilk is still the best for any baby, but it will still be challenging. Why? It will be challenging because each child is different.

You’re not just buying the same doll off from a store’s shelf! Haha! The challenge is really adjusting once again to that particular child. Little Ginger

I do love having someone to look after (aside from looking after my husband). I love being a mom, even if it may seem to many that I highlight my businesses more over my family in conversations. Even if I don’t talk about my family as much as I babble about business and my new ventures, I love the spontaneous, silly conversations that I have with my 3 year old daughter at times when I’m home. I love wandering through the streets in our community when we both need breaks from working (for me) and from eating and playing (for her). I love the hugs and the kisses and the surprise “i love you, mama!” that she gives all throughout the day.

If you are expecting a child, there is nothing more challenging (even more challenging than running a business!), fulfilling, precious, exciting, etc. (there are tons of adjectives really) as raising your own child.

What to Know Before Giving Birth Workshop

For three years, Manila Workshops, have been giving you different kinds of lifestyle workshops and one of the workshops that we plan to sustain and really run forever (haha… if forever is a possibility!) is our Parenting Workshops, Parenting Pals and the First Time Parents Workshop Series. The First Time Parents Workshop series really aims to help expecting parents prepare for scenarios that are unfamiliar to most of us who are first time or even second or third time parents. This year, we are holding the second and the last run of the What to Know Before Giving Birth Workshop on June 27, 2015.

This workshop is brought to you also by The Parenting Emporium and Stemcord Philippines, Inc. Here are the details of the workshop.
