drawing the line

for several days now, i’ve noticed a change in my son’s behavior.  i think i am beginning to worry.  well, its not that serious really but im guessing if i dont do something about it, the crack is going to get bigger. im referring to his study habits.  i noticed a lull in his enthusiasm. …

friday high

  friday was a fun day for me last week.  inspite of the loads of work i have, i’m glad i was able to take time off and spend a school day with my son.  yep. you read it right, folks.  a regular weekday outside the office. it was kobe’s annual sportsfest in school.  i…

wrong move…

my son lost his cellphone in school last friday.  i know that for a nine year old, he’s way to young to have one but eversince the typhoon hit us, we lost our landline.  hubby and i thought it wise to allow him to have our old one for us to communicate easier (considering he…

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…

not again…

its a saturday.  what a beautiful day to clean house and do laundry.  but these things have to be put-off in the meantime.  kobe is sick again! yeah, you read it right…again. he was not able to go to class yesterday because of fever.  i don’t know what’s wrong.  he seemed ok after his soccer…

fever update

whew! we’re out of danger.  kobe’s fever turned out not the dreaded a(n1h1) virus. sigh….  but we still have to taked medications for his throat.  it appears that he has tonsilitis.  a day or so of rest, lots of fluids and antibiotics would do the trick. that was a close call.  as of now, his…

down with fever

kobe is sick today.  normally, i would take things in stride, but with the current pandemic, im scared out of my wits.  i sure hope its just sore throat and colds.  this morning, he was really grumpy and complained of difficulty in swallowing.  but after i gave him a sponge bath and fever medicine, he…

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…

happy birthday, kobe :)

i remember vividly how i was blessed with the cutest, most adorable and handsome little boy.  carrying for nine months was not easy.  i was sickly and mostly annoyed by the changes in me.  when he finally came out, all the hardships and pain became a distant memory.  he was so perfect–all 9.5 lbs of…

Let the Games Begin…

The Rizal Interschool Football Associateion (R.I.F.A.) kicked off 2009 with a January tournament.  Kobe’s soccer team (Marist Midgets) are once again, pitted against several schools (Ateneo, British International School, Claret, Colegio De San Agustin, Don Bosco, La Salle, etc) for this season’s RIFA elimination. Two weeks ago the Marist Midgets played in their home court. …

Being No. 1

Okay, since Im back to my regular programing, I’d like y’all to know that my son’s  Soccer Tournament ended with an unexpected bang (at least for the team).  The RIFA games ended last Saturday with a championship match for all winning teams.   The Marist Midgets Team made it to the finals.  You can tell that there’s…

Zero

I was so disappointed last night when I saw my son’s Math seatwork.  Kobe came home with a big, fat ZERO marked in his workbook.  I didn’t know how to react, much less hide my dismay.  When I asked him, he simply said that he didn’t understand how to solve the equations.  This is so not…
