Baby Snow White 6th Bday ( Part 1- Jollibee)

Last Sunday, we celebrated Baby Snow White’s 6th birthday. We celebrated it in the newly built Jollibee Kalibo. It is spacious and can accommodate a little more than a hundred  guests. Both Pretty Ariel and Sweet Cinderella also celebrated their birthdays when they were younger in Jollibee but in Jollibee Gaisano. Right now, this Jollibee is the only Jollibee in Kalibo that caters kiddie party.

The party was set 3-5 P.M. but we arrived 30 minutes earlier than scheduled, and we were surprise that they didn’t allow us to enter until 3:00 P.M. WE were the first one to arrive and a few minuted later, her classmates arrived. There is a  small waiting area with tables and chairs too, and we stayed there while waiting for the clock to hit 3.

Left with nothing to do, we spent our time taking pho...

Ugghhh… but :)

I’ve been working online for years, and it may sound easy but the truth is, it is harder than I ever thought.
The pressure at work plus pressure with the kids, the small store I’m managing and house issues.. Ugggh! sometimes all I want to do is bury my face in the pillow and sleep. But when I think of my daughters and my wonderful partner plus the flexibility that my work provides, I just smile and feel thankful

Right now, I am just waiting for the clock’s hands to strike 12:30 and I will start with my task. So this is just a quickie post.

Have a great day guys! Talk to you later.

Sick for a few days now

Baby Snow White is sick for a few days now.
It’s hard when a baby is sick.
You know they can’t tell you exactly how they feel, unlike with the grown ups!
I thought that the fever is due to her molars on their way out.
But no more pain in her gums now but still her temperature is not coming down.
I wonder what’s wrong. =(
Well she is in her usual self playing and watching.
But still…

Hays… should I try another paracetamol brand?

Recognition Day… a day to be proud of

School year is finally over.

Time flies noh?

Next school year, Baby Snow White will be on Grade 1 na.

But before thinking of the coming school year, let me share to you our pride moment on Baby Snow White’s recognition day.

Because of the K-12, kindergarten is already a part of the elementary curriculum thus, there is no more graduation rites. They are already a part of the elementary recognition and no longer wear the traditional toga.

While waiting for the program to start. We took some photo op!

Baby Snow White and Baby J are friends since Day Care.

I expected the program to last a couple of hours, because its from Kindergarten to Grade lV. Good thing that it was not really hot.

Mother Tongue

What are the languages being taught  in your child’s school?

Here in Aklan, Akeanon ( local dialect) is being taught to lower grades including kindergarten.

No problem with that.
But because of their young age, it becomes a little bit complicated for them to learn and differentiate English, Filipino and Akeanon.

They even have books in Akeanon.
Some parents believe that it should be taught on higher grade levels.
How about you fellow moms?
Does your child’s school implement Mother Tongue subjects?

How is your usual day with a kindergarten?

Having a kindergarten daughter means  waiting a few hours at school. Before, that is not the case for me. My cousin takes them to school then Sweet Cinderella will drop Baby Snow White in her classroom before proceeding to her own class.

Baby Snow White is a very independent child. She loves doing things on her own. However when she feels that she is being left behind, she cries. Whenever parents go inside the room to be with their kids, she cries. No mommy on her side, hehehe.

So I decided to go to her school during recess time and wait until her class ends.

So this is the usual scenario of mothers waiting for their kids.

I’m one of them now.

Hello Darkness, My Old Friend

Yay! I was actually singing the song while typing my post. I am sad today. I am not really good in saying goodbye. Dark days I guess. Sometimes the reason is clear but we can’t do anything about it.
On the brighter side I guess this too shall pass so I just have to let it be.

Good News!

Just got a text from my friend.
She said that there’s a new update regarding the DepEd Order’s new age requirements for kindergarten and Grade 1.

Last January, DepEd released a new Deped Order stating that a child needs to be 5 years old by June 1 2015 to be accepted in Kindergarten replacing the previous cut-off date which is October 30,2015.

Therefore, kids turning 5 years old from June 2-October 30 2015 need to go back to DayCare or stop for 1 year.

This raised eyebrows of affected parents. Why on earth would they release such DepEd memo at the middle of the school year? Many kids will be affected.

So today, I am happy because a new deped memo has been released exempting this year’s batch for the changes.

Yey! Finally, we wont be coming back to DayCare anymore.

I’m so relieved. 🙂
