>Teaching a Child the Value of Giving

> Today I had a nice conversation with a friend and it made me realize that never did my Mom lent me anything. Why? It’s because whatever I asked or whatever I wanted to borrow, she gave. I never had to borrow jewelries because she said I can use anything she owns as long as […]

>Do you have a sweet toothed toddler?

I didn’t […]

She came home with a worksheet on numbers. The teacher then offered another […]

>What Do You Hope Your Child Will Learn?

>Peaches’ Art works

>Peaches wants her “art” put up on our fridge door. At first it was really cool but when the art stuff kept coming, my fridge will look like a paper mache. So I made this board for her: It’s actually an old desk calendar that’s just adding on my trash. We have yet to beautify […]

>Scramble, Iskrambol, Ice Crumble, Skrambol

> If you’re a true blooded Pinoy you will know what I’m talking about. I’m sure you’re mouths’ watering with the thoughts of that cup full of cold pink ice and powdered milk.  I used to buy those on the streets, I didn’t care if magic sugar was in it and I didn’t think where […]

>The Life of a Work at Home Mom

>Potty Training a Toddler part 2

> If you haven’t read my post about Potty training a toddler  please do so. 🙂  I would just to stress the importance of asking the toddler to pee at the bathroom when she’s diaperless.  When they’re still learning, sometimes they’re confused with the urge to pee that most of the time it’s too late when […]
