happy birthday, julia:)

all my preparation paid off.  julia’s birthday celeb in school was a hit!  her classmates loved the lollicakes i brought.  remember the issue i had with the school rules about bringing food.  they reasoned that since students are just preps, simple finger food (read: cupcakes, sandwhiches, etc) are the ones they encourage parents to bring.  i…

things are finally taking shape..yey!  i already talked to julia’s school and we agreed on something.  im glad to report that they allowed me to bring just a little something for the kids to enjoy. i know seems “kj” bit rules are rules. though they are not directly against it, i believe that the school…

birthday prep

I am in a bit of a panic here.  Julia’s birthday is fast approaching and I still got nothing up my sleeve.  This year, we decided to celebrate her 6th birthday in school.  It’s Julia’s first time in school so we have to make it special.  I already spoke to her teacher and she told…

cereals for dinner

“mom, can i have cereals for dinner?” this is what julia told me this morning over breakfast.  naturally, i said no but offered that she could have them after (as a dessert).  for the longest time now, i’ve been in constant hit and miss with julia.  for some reason, she’s become picky.  i can’t let…

julia is in a bad mood today.  she’s been wimpering eversince i left this morning.  when i called in to check on her, she was crying so hard.  i did not know what’s happening.  was she in pain? i’ve gotta know…. she seemed so sad and desperate.  when finally, i got some words out, asking…

julia’s birthday

last saturday, julia turned 4.  we did not have a party for her, instead, we decided to celebrate her birthday someplace else.  incidentally, july 11th was also hubby’s family day at his office.  so, we thought it best to join in the fun along with other kids and families. like the previous year, the hsbc…

recovering well

i’m back.  sorry for the late posts.  as mentioned before, i was swamped with mommy duties.  would you believe that during the past week both kids got sick?  kobe recovered beatifully after a bout with flu,  julia, on the other hand, had to be hospitalized.   we spent two days in the hospital.  her diagnosis…

child’s play

                                                kobe, my 9 year old is so addicted to this game.  every time he gets a chance to use the computer, i always find him playing.  of course, julia has also her favorite game too.  i don’t know when or how she’d figure this one out, but she seem to be really enjoying this…

keeping julia busy

remember when kobe got sick a few days ago?  well, my cares were not just about helping my son get better but keeping little julia from getting afflicted as well. the latter proved to be more of a challenge.  little julia adores her brother.  she may have some unorthodox way of showing it, i know…

julia’s first post

my daughter julia has been bugging me since this morning.  she wants to do everything i do.  early this morning while i was doing the laundry, she, too insisted on washing her clothes.  same thing when i prepared breakfast.  she wanted to mix the eggs.  out of exasperation, i let her do some “helping”.  not…

yummy saturday:)

the heavy and frequent rains during the weekends was a damper on my kids saturday activity.  we haven’t been to our favorite bookstore these past weeks.  boredom was beginning to kick in.  we tried sorts of things to do, but the novelty of it quickly fades away.  no, home movies wasn’t the cure either.  for…

Practice Makes Perfect

My children’s caregiver is such a blessing to us.  Aside from looking after the kids, she also does all around work (laundry, housekeeping, etc).  She is also an excellent cook.  I think I’ve mentioned her natural talent in some of my entries.  Anyways, just recently, she was making kwento about my daughter, Julia.  She told…
