snaps: school spirit

this photo was taken during k1’s family day. since hubby and i are couple reps for his section, all the kids of the couple reps were called on stage to sing the alma mater song.

and how smart is this boy to stay near the mic and sing his heart out.

that’s school spirit. even in pre school. 🙂

ANIMO!

i am doing something right after all.

i stumbled upon this blog post from my facebook feed. and after reading it, it felt like a pat on the back that i am doing something good for and to my boys.

Here’s the link: 25 rules for mothers of sons

25 rules for mothers of sons

it felt good that from the start, the things that i teach my boys were part of this list. to note a few:

– Be a cheerleader for his life
– Read to him and read with him.
– Teach him to have manners
– Let him ruin his clothes / Get Dirty
– Let him lose
– Answer him when he asks, “Why?”
– Always carry band-aids and wipes on you.
– Build him forts

and to add to my list, let him explore toys that girls play – cooking sets, dolls, etc. because eventually they’ll outgrow these and stick to cars, robots, trucks and blocks. toys are toys, they all make use of a child’s imagination. it will not dictate their gender preference when they grow up. (i grew up playing with boy’s toys, and here i am, a mother of 3.)

what comfort to know that i am indeed doing something right after all in the motherhood department. 🙂

my boys ❤

snaps: sharing is caring

this is what i treasure. days when they get along. 🙂

sharing is caring ❤

 

the downside of having kids aged 2 years apart is the constant bickering and fighting over toys. so this is a rare moment when they do get along.

day 22 of the 30 day blog challenge

it’s just amazing that hubby spares his time to attend events such as these. and this means a lot to our kids, which he knows of course. he makes sure that in every special occasion, he’ll be there no matter what.

although late, happy father’s day!

hubby and his mini-me ❤

a little pause

day 21 of the 30 day blog challenge

so i skipped sunday and monday posts for my 30 day blog challenge. i apologize. things got a bit hectic at home.

1. k2 gave us the dengue scare when he got home after spending a weekend with the in laws. so that monday was spent in having him checked. thank goodness things turned out negative.

2. the whole sunday was a blur, i can’t remember anything significant at all. maybe i was asleep/busy the whole day.

but i’ll be back this week to complete my 30 day blog challenge.

day 19 of the 30 day blog challenge

it was a pleasant surprise seeing this in K1’s bag while checking his assignments and worksheets:

his first borrowed book

i found the first library book he borrowed. and he was so proud to tell me about it. after this book, he can’t wait for the next book 🙂

i feel so proud seeing my firstborn build an interest in books. and i can’t wait to see the next book 🙂

linggo ng wika

day 15 of the 30 day blog challenge

i’m the excited mommy for k1 who’s going to celebrate his first linggo ng wika in school. costumes are ready. i’m not sure though if we can watch the performance but i’m sure k1 will have a blast. 🙂

and forgetful mom that i am, i totally forgot to buy him snacks to share. they were required to bring filipino food to share with the class. good thing we have pan de manila just downstairs. and cheese pan de sal to the rescue! (i’m counting that pan de sal is considered as pinoy food. LOL)
