Danae’s Read-A-Thon

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”

WE MISS OUR KIDS!

It’s been five days since we entered the emergency room of Asian Hospital for King’s terrible back pain, and five nights since he got admitted. Needless to say, in true Lucero fashion, our hospital room was home for us and the girls. Danae and Noelle are such troopers that it wasn’t a problem. Besides, weContinue reading “WE MISS OUR KIDS!”

Danae got me!

We were reviewing for Danae’s first achievement test last week and came across examples of polite expressions in her English book. The exercise was for her to choose the proper response for a specific situation. Things like how to respond when someone thanks you. Should you say “Whatever!” or “You’re welcome!”? The most interesting scenarioContinue reading “Danae got me!”

SUMMER 2011

Summer 2011 has been one fruitful season! Noelle learned shapes, letter sounds, counting, songs, and keeping her hair clip on for more than 5 minutes (haha) through her summer workshop. She learned to recognize authority and interact with her teachers. Even though at first she was not confident enough to stay in class by herself,Continue reading “SUMMER 2011”

Ten Times Better Already

We named Danae after Daniel of the Bible. He’s one of our favorite people, along with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. They had great faith and courage, and were ten times better than their counterparts. But before I continue, this blog is in NO WAY AIMED TO MAKE YOU COMPARE YOUR KIDS or other kids toContinue reading “Ten Times Better Already”

SUPER MOM!

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!”

MY JOY

Last Monday, our family went on a day-trip to the beach. It was absolutely awesome. And in the afternoon, as I was sitting on the shore, soaking up the sun, I just couldn’t help but look at my eldest daughter. Noelle was resting in the dining parasol at that time. I was just quietly watchingContinue reading “MY JOY”

The Future According to Danae

Lately, Danae’s been harping about her future baby brother and actually planning his life already, saying he’s going to do this and that, and telling me what she and Noelle are going to do with him. Also after coming to us with all sorts of unusual names, we finally agreed on naming him David. IContinue reading “The Future According to Danae”

TOUGH but GREAT!

Before King left, I didn’t have much expectations or anticipations about what it was going to be like. I anticipated that I’d have some difficult days, but that’s typical of every week. I didn’t psyche myself out by already expecting to be overwhelmed and tired. I guess you could say I took it a dayContinue reading “TOUGH but GREAT!”

long distance relationship

King’s been out of the country for over a week and though the girls and I have been doing okay, it has been tough. For one thing, the girls were sick when he left. There was no question as to him leaving because it wasn’t that bad and frankly, I didn’t even think of itContinue reading “long distance relationship”
