Mommy’s turn! The first time I encountered “it” was when Danae was around 2 years old. She wasn’t in any pain. She was actually just singing her heart out in the shower. I immediately called my aunt, who is a pediatrician, and she confirmed my fears. “It” was a hernia. I instantaneously cried over theContinue reading “Mommy Writes”

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”
GOD VS SATAN 2
“Satan made me do it!” “Si Satan kasi!” Words we used to hear Danae say when we would discipline her. Yup, we do that sometimes too. We blame others for the things that “happen” to us. Really? It’s his fault? It’s her fault? Really? We always have a choice. Satan, or anyone else for thatContinue reading “GOD VS SATAN 2”
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It was a very busy Christmas Season for us, all the way up to New Year and Noelle’s birthday. It’s been busy and exhausting, yet fun, fruitful and meaningful, most especially for our family. We ended 2011 and began 2012 with milestones! Danae lost her very first baby tooth on December 28, and she’s excitedContinue reading “HAPPY NEW YEAR!”
God of Miracles
Last August, after King’s ordeal with his slipped disc, I got to talk to Danae about MIRACLES. I don’t remember exactly how I explained what a miracle is, except that it is something only God can do of course, but I told her that daddy getting well without surgery was a miracle. I called itContinue reading “God of Miracles”
The Sound of Music
Last December 8, we had the chance to catch Janina Punzalan’s second to the last stint as Brigitta in Resorts World Manila’s production of The Sound of Music. I personally love the movie, and ever since we heard that Janina was doing the show, I told my girls that we would watch her. Good thingContinue reading “The Sound of Music”
LET’S TRAVEL WITH OUR KIDS!
TRAVELING is very much a part of our family. Aside from it being a time for family bonding, for creating memories, for rest and recreation, it’s a GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR TEACHING. Exposing our kids to different places and cultures teaches them so many things. From simple things as how sand feels like, how sea waterContinue reading “LET’S TRAVEL WITH OUR KIDS!”
How well do you know your child?
Because Danae’s 6 and Noelle’s already almost 3, their personalities are more evident than ever. It definitely showed during our recent trip. For one, well this one’s not new at all, they’re both witty and funny. Years ago, Danae at age 3 exclaimed as we landed in Manila probably from Cagayan de Oro, “Thank youContinue reading “How well do you know your child?”
Danae & Noelle are different in many ways, but they do have some similarities. For instance, when Danae was 3, she would say JOPHES instead of Joseph and HOSTIPAL instead of hospital (click here for an old blog). Noelle says the exact same thing today. Noelle says OH MY GOSH while covering her mouth justContinue reading “NOELLE SAYS”
Great Tip to De-Stress Your Life!
Before our 10-day stay in hospital, it has been 4 months of not having a permanent helper at home and about 2 months of having a weekly cleaning lady and weekly laundry woman. I would have to cook our meals, which I have said here that it’s not something I am used to, OR weContinue reading “Great Tip to De-Stress Your Life!”
