I Don’t Want You to Die, Mommy….

I don’t know if it’s because she is the youngest or because it’s just really her personality, but Gianna is majorly clingy to me. She really loves me and even though we are constantly together, she still tells me that she misses me and wants me….. to do everything with her, even though there areContinue reading “I Don’t Want You to Die, Mommy….”

What Can We Do?

We are on enhanced community quarantine right now. I have not tried leaving the house since I last bought groceries from small stores, last Saturday. So far, we’ve been okay. Kids are somehow productive. I’ve been hearing the ukulele and piano more these days. We have been playing volleyball and badminton in the backyard. TheContinue reading “What Can We Do?”

I thank God for VBC

Aaah, Vacation Bible Camp. Not something I have to do, but something I get to do. I thank God for the privilege to be part of a huge team of amazing volunteers. Their passion to serve, their love for God and for the children, their commitment and dedication to do things excellently, to push toContinue reading “I thank God for VBC”

What did you learn from the movie?

Every time we watch a movie, we ask the girls what they learn. We did the same after watching The Greatest Showman. One of them said that we shouldn’t care about what other people think about us, only what we think about ourselves. My immediate response was, “What if you think you’re ugly?” I thinkContinue reading “What did you learn from the movie?”

3 Life Lessons from Cars 3

Even though I was standing for probably half the movie, because of course, Gianna and her desire to move struck again, I liked Cars 3. It spoke to me. 1. “Truth is always quicker, kid.” I completely agree. We get to the heart of the issue if we just tell the truth. No mincing ofContinue reading “3 Life Lessons from Cars 3”

T.R.E.N.D.S.

I’m not one who is easily influenced by today’s trends. I like what I like, and they may not necessarily be what’s cool at the moment. Actually, sometimes I only have cool (but very useful) stuff because my husband or mom or friends give them to me as gifts haha. Anyway, this is something weContinue reading “T.R.E.N.D.S.”

Oh Motherhood!

Oh motherhood! “Mooooooommmm?”  “Heeeeeeelllpppp!” “Can I have rice please?” When the bowl of rice is an arm’s reach away. “I can’t find it.” And IT (whatever IT is) is right there in front of her. “Mommy, look!” “Mom mom, look!” “Mommy, look at me!” All at once. “Mommy o!” “Mom, she (insert verb) me!” “Carry!” Continue reading “Oh Motherhood!”

Let’s Talk About Sex Baby!

When the girls were still little, I dreaded the inevitable sex talk. Because we have girls, the responsibility to teach them is mine. My friends and mentors told me how important it is to educate our own kids about sex by age 9, so that they don’t get misinformed or get wrongly exposed to certainContinue reading “Let’s Talk About Sex Baby!”

On Stage Again

One of my daughters has been interested in acting ever since she was little, but we didn’t have the chance or time to commit to any workshops. When Homeschool@Alabang opened in June last year, offering a Musical Theater class that fit into our girls’ regular school schedule, we enrolled both girls since my other daughterContinue reading “On Stage Again”
