When Your Second Time Seems Like the First Time...

This week, my body's new resident enters his/her 10th week and is doing good in making me feel sleepy all day and sleepy all night which leaves the house and the work late on due. I actually have a valid reason to just lay there and read a book.
This is not my first time but I could vouch now that every pregnancy sure is uniquely special. I think it's easier and harder for the second time. Easier because you kinda have a clue of what's to expect and harder because before it's the baby inside, the house and the work. Now it's the baby inside, the house, the work, and the toddler, who can't stop himself from running around. Ha! Twists like these makes me smile and cringe at the same time, I am loving this roller coaster ride of life called motherhood!
To make this expansion of our nuclear family extra extra special, I'll end up this post with a little giveaway.
I will be giving away one spiral Belle de Jour Power Planner 2015 which includes a Perks of a Bella booklet, a BDJ Lifestyle card and stickers inside. I've been a BDJ bella for a couple of years now and it did help me organize my chaotic lifestyle being a freelance work-at-home mom without any helper.
This giveaway will run for 10 days, is open to all Philippine residents and is of legal age. Minors should have permission from their guardian.
