BANNING BEN

We’ve recently decided to ban Pablo from watching his Ben 10 DVDs. We should’ve done it sooner, we are to blame. Here are the reasons why we’re banning Ben10: 1. Ben is disrespectful to his grandfather. He raises his voice and talks back when he’s being corrected. 2. Ben is mean to Gwen, his cousin. He calls her names, picks fights with her all the time, pull cruel pranks on her and embarrasses her in front of other people. 3. Ben is rebellious. He does not take well to corrections. Sometimes, he even runs away. 4. Ben has vile, spiteful, […]

5 BENEFITS OF HOME SCHOOLING

This is our fifth year in homeschooling. We started out a bit too early as I’ve mentioned in a previous blog.There have been no regrets. Home schooling has been one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. I’m giving you 5 of our reasons why we plan to stick to it for a very long time. WE CAN HOME SCHOOL ANYWHERE At home, we do have a designated home school room where the kids have a desk (a table, actually, that we’re using for a desk) but we don’t always do it there. Sometimes, my kids bring their activities to […]

Hip Hop Abs Momma

So, I woke up sore all over and all because yesterday, I braved my first HIP HOP ABS session. It’s not like I enrolled in a class or something. I think that’s what the DVDs are all about – to sell to desperately out-of-shape housewives so we can do the workouts at home. I’ve been asking around to borrow a copy and finally, I got a hold of it and got down to work…and work it out, I did! BOOM! Eating-disorder history Before this whole momma thing, I used to be…how should I put it? Uhm, I guess, a recovering […]

THE FIRST TRAIN RIDE

I took my son on his first train ride yesterday. It was not at all planned. We came from his Friday classes with other homeschoolers in Alabang and had to take the public transportation back and forth our place in Taguig. The bus ride from the south was going smoothly until it hit a slow (and quite draining) traffic right before the Magallanes bridge.  Pablo was asleep beside me, exhausted from the long walks that we had to take to reach the designated bus and jeepney stops. I was getting claustrophobic and a bit nauseous from the foggy windows, the […]

Not too married to date

One of the things that Jay and I agreed to work on when we moved to Taguig is our date day which became pretty much nonexistent when we had our third child and we moved to Cavite. It’s one thing to leave 2 kids for a friend to oversee and another to leave a 6 year old, a 3-year old and a baby!  Seriously, I’m their momma but sometimes, my kids drive me nuts! Even my mom, their grandmom, beg off from this task often. So, we pay our babysitter a bit more than the usual fee and pray that […]
