Mr. Potato Head

Pardon me for blogging about this again but I just have to share the cuteness of these Mr. Potato Head toys.  I had over 40 spuds at one time which I auctioned out to help somebody in need last year.  I thought disposing most of them then was cleansing away the "addiction", it turns out it will just come back again with the re-release of these cute little spuddies.

Here are just some of the new spuds which were released in the market late last year to early this year.  I also added  the limited Elvis edition.


 I had the earlier version of the next two Spuds.  I think these had more details on it so it is still a good buy.

... and then of course there is the Elvis Presley edition.  These are two of seven that PPW Toys that will come out in the market.

It is a shame that these are not available here in the Philippines.  Although it might be the universe saving my family from grief.  If I buy more of these (or any other toys), we will have to move out because there just isn't enough space for everyone. 

You might also be interested in the special themed Mr. Potato Head toys that I wrote about before (see here).

I Don't Know How She Does It

I admire mothers who have a successful work-life balance.  Mine has been a challenge - I feel that I've been trying, too hard, that I get to screw up both.  Right now I feel that had I been more present in Pot's life, she would have finished her first year in Kindergarden.  If I was not busy thinking about home, work performance would have been better.

An office friend recommended that I watch "I Don't Know How She Does It."  It stars Sarah Jessica Parker who portrays a working mother trying desperately to juggle marriage, children, and a high-stress job.  Frankly, apart from the movie hitting home because of the oh-too-familiar scenario, I was not expecting so much.

Prettiest Girls

This is not exactly the most toddler-friendly cartoon but I found a song I love.  So it is just good that I post the lyrics here as well as the music that I found on YouTube.  Go give it a listen.  I am sure you will love it too.

Those who personally know me knows that I had a great fear of hospitals. My hands get clammy as soon as I step in to the lobby; near fainting when I get to hospital rooms.  Prior to being a mother, I have been in the hospital at most five times, only once for confinement (Pneumonia).
