    Saying I’m Sorry

    I have recently found a TV show for kids – Sheriff Callie’s Wild West! The very first episode we have watched (Roey and I) has this song entitled “Saying I’m Sorry!” And it has become part of Roey’s favorite songs list from then on. Both my kids love to sing and that particular song is something any Mom will recommend. It is not just so easy to sing, it is also meaningful. Meaningful in the sense that it teaches the importance of saying “I’m Sorry”. Educating my kids with good manners and values is on top of my parenting priorities. I am not alone in this for sure. Here’s the lyrics…

    Breakfast: Banana-Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Cups

    One morning, I decided to serve both K & Roey Banana oatmeal. K ended up eating both servings and Roey ate Bananas instead. K got used to eating anything you serve her, believe it or not. My Mama has really helped a lot in her eating habits. She may be skinny but I am thankful that she is not sickly as well. Both my kids, actually. Thanks to HIM! Because, health is definitely a priority for me, and then education. Roey, on the other hand, is the picky eater, she is not skinny though. She has just learned ( I don’t know where!) to say no to any food she…

    Friends and Playmates

      “Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.” – O. Fred Donaldson My curious and playful gal. Roey’s dressed up because she attended a children’s party. And played with our neighbor, her friend, Noel.

    Snacks and Sweets

        Every Mom wants to serve her child/children all the healthy foods there is and it would bring her so much joy if the kids would like it and enjoy! I never had trouble giving veggies and fruits to my girls. They’re both curious and experimental (with the different tastes), I may say. Now that they’re able to help me out with little things and chores, I ensure to compensate them (okay, reward is the word) with healthy snacks.   Nutty Banana cake   And I give in to sweets too, sometimes. In the next photo, lucky Roey has a 70 grams of assorted candies. That includes caramel fudge…

    In the Kitchen: Merienda Galore

    What is one best way to spend time with the family? During merienda! Afternoon snacks besides night chats is one part of the day I enjoy spending with my kids. My kids don’t have high levels of appetite (especially my elder daughter) but they have all the thrills and giggles whenever I serve something for them. We call it “Takaw-Tingin” here in the Philippines. It is summer and kids are out for vacation and as we all know, kids nowadays are unstoppable. They make it necessary for us parents to prepare something new for them, be it food, games, toys or unlimited number of activities so as to keep their…

    Friend For Keeps

    “A friend is someone whole reaches for your hand, but touches your heart.” Kathleen Grove   I have been inspired to try back my love for photography as soon as I got my Cherry mobile Flare phone. Together with my childhood friends, we visited a resort in Bulacan. The kids had so much fun especially Roey who got to play again with Miggy. Miggy is just almost a year older than her and the two get along pretty well. I hope that their friendship, just like their Moms’ last a lifetime.

    Lalaloopsy Craze

    Lalaloopsy has swept away girls’ and even Moms’ feet! OA? Just kidding! But honestly, this cute, trendy and colorful doll caught the eye of many. Moms and kids alike! Besides its pleasing appearance, you can really play with it, or if you have the soft doll type, just bring it along to complete your fashion statement! (referring to kids’ fashion statement Moms! )   Books were my gift to K last Christmas and she’s finished reading them all. My gift to Roey came a little late for December but it did not matter to her at all. When she saw this Lalaloopsy Soft Doll I purchased online from Shopping Galore ,…

    Toddler Photography #4

    These are new sets I made out of my toddler’s shots. See how she’s becoming a little vain? These photos are of hers, taken by her. I often tell her not to do these kind of shots since the flash might cause eye issues. After the many reminders, I found her exploring the camera’s features and has learned to disable flash. Whoooah! So much for a 2 year old kid! She’s made new shots which are near perfect. Something that makes me proud and will definitely post soon.

    Toddler Photography #3

    Getting better yet? These were taken one morning as I was preparing my elder daughter for school. Notice that Roey took photos while she”s lying in the bed. We unintentionally woke her up because of the noise we made that morning. To my surprise, Roey”s first words that morning – “Where is?” – And she was referring to the digital camera which resulted to these photos. That’s her in White crocheted beanie.
