Weekend Blog Follower Caravan 9

I thought I would not be able to make it but thank you for the extended deadline. I am but excited to join since I saw Pinay Mommies Community from my friend AC. So, here is more of me:

Born in the month of September (so is why SeptemberCharm) as Stephanie S. Cruz. People call me “Phanie” or “Panyang”. I grew up in a very simple life. I love pink, blue and green. I used to draw, dance and declaim (I don’t have a good singing voice that is why) and join contests back in grade school. My Dad a.k.a “Kano” is half American. Sadly, he didn’t get to meet his father who hailed from Ohio. Daddy passed away when I was just 7yo and in first grade. I studied for 3 years in my Mama’s province in Buhi, Camarines Sur and I sure have great memories of my stay there.

It was back in High School where I met the father of my lovely daughters. I have already promised to myself that I will not have any BF until I graduated in HS so even after our exchange of love notes, I rejected Ronald. He never talked to me again.

I took up BS Customs Administration in PMI Colleges in Manila but only for a year. I had to stop because of financial instability and Mama got sick. I worked as a personal assistant to an Avon beauty manager to help Mama. After that, I decided to pursue my studies but shifted to BS Business Admin major in Management. I was a working student while Mama continued her small sari-sari store and sewing services after her operation. I worked as a service crew in several fast food chains and as an usherette in SM City movie house. That’s where Ronald and I met again. The rest is our love story.

I am now a mother of two wonderful kids named Keanna Steffi and Haley Roneese. They were born 7 years apart. Kikay is turning 9 and Roey is almost 17 months now.

I worked as a Technical Customer Care Representative at Convergys Services Phils for almost 6 years. That is where I’ve learned a lot about the net. I started my Septembercharm blog last 2008 just to share my thoughts as a daughter, a mom, wife and friend. The posts that I have back then were mostly about Keanna until she asked me to create a blog of her own which gave birth to The Sweet Life of A Big Sister .

I resigned from IBM Business Services as an HR Generalist (agent) just recently. I am now loving and living the life of SAHM. A tough decision to make but I know, I will soon see the benefits of it. I then decided to try a new hobby, sewing! Everything about the new hobby will be shared in Stitches Of Life blog. My inspiration is my Mama who passed away last December. It broke me, but thanks to my loving family, relatives and friends that I still look at life in a very positive way. I am still learning a lot in terms of being a hands-on-mom, multi tasking (it’s hard to do this at home than at work, honestly!) and blogging. I just wish that I would be able to impart or share something of value to you fellow mommies, because I am overwhelmed by tips, opportunities and friendship that you all offer. Thank you! And, KUDOS to all of us here in the Weekend Blog Follower Caravan.

Panyang! bago yun. Never knew some of these stories until now...coz when we chat we only talk about nice things...It's nice that you're able to share this so I get to know more about you. I know how much you love your mom and vice-versa kaya it saddens me knowing that she wouldn't be there to see the kids grow up...di bale, you'll see her someday again (john 5:28)

Basta, kaya mo yan! ;) Itaas ang bandera, halika na manahi at magsulat haha

Hi Stef. Such hardships... :( But I know you bring with you the greatest lessons and that has made you stronger.

Sorry to hear about the recent passing of your mom. It must be hard. I fight with my mom a lot but I know I'd totally lose it if she were to leave me.

Thanks for sharing a bit of yourself. And welcome to WBFC and PMB!
