Victory Alabang held a parenting seminar morning of last Saturday, July 14. Tired from our trip, the girls and I came late, arriving in time for the break-out sessions. I left the girls in one of the rooms to watch cartoons with the other kids, so I could attend the 0-9-years-old group with Pastor ArielContinue reading “C.O.R.R.E.C.T.I.O.N.”

A few months back, Danae complained about having to get her own water and having to get us glasses for the table. She even smartly told us that we were big enough to get our own water, that she’s a child and we should get water for her. The other day, she wished that theyContinue reading “EARLY TRAINING”
Danae’s school recently concluded their book month, wherein they, aside from other activities, promoted the Read-A-Thon in all levels. As the kids read books at home, the parents or guardians were asked to time them and record the title of book, time started, time ended and date on a sheet of paper. The teachers scheduledContinue reading “Danae’s Read-A-Thon”
Danae Learns Responsibility
One afternoon two weeks ago, Danae told me that they made something in school that involved cutting. The first time she shared her story, she just said that they made something. By evening, before going to bed, she told me that somebody cut her hair after making the craft. Curious, I asked her who itContinue reading “Danae Learns Responsibility”
For the past week, we have had no household help except for our handy man, who thankfully washes our cookware and runs errands for me sometimes. Our helper is on leave till the first week of June, which means 2 more weeks of this — no one to clean for us, cook for us, washContinue reading “SUPER MOM!”
I CHOOSE CONFLICT 2
“I’ve always been like this.” “This is my personality. This is me. Take it or leave it.” “If you’re not used to it by now, then you don’t really know me yet.” “People keep telling me this over and over again. They misunderstand me.” Ever heard these things come out of your mouth? Well, they’veContinue reading “I CHOOSE CONFLICT 2”
EYE CONTACT When Danae was born, I was mesmerized. I could not take my eyes off her and she loved looking into my eyes as well. We would hold our gaze for minutes at a time, especially while she was breastfeeding. It was like communicating to each other how deeply we loved each other, silently.Continue reading “CONTACT!”
DANAE’S FIRST MOVIE DATE!
Danae watched Gulliver’s Travels yesterday with her cousin Javi and his grandparents, as she was invited the other night. It was her first time to watch a movie in the theater without us. I did not hesitate because I knew she would be in good hands, and I was pretty sure the movie was safeContinue reading “DANAE’S FIRST MOVIE DATE!”
Top of the class!
Last month was Danae’s school’s parent-teacher conference and I was pretty excited to find out how well my daughter did. As I was waiting outside for my turn, I saw on the bulletin board the names of the top 3 students… the 3 kids who topped the kinder classes’ 1st achievement test. DANAE’S NAME WASContinue reading “Top of the class!”
I’ve taken note of these conversations in the past months because they made me think. Campus missionary Francis Villanueva’s great preaching at youth service yesterday about LUSOT, LAKAD & LAGAY, pushed me to finally finish and post it. Me: Nae, don’t stand on that chair. Your sister will copy you. (a constant line in ourContinue reading “SOUND FAMILIAR?”
