I am advocate of my kids’ education!

My Learning Blockbelieves that parent involvement plays a significant role in enhancing your child’s learning capabilities and helps him develop good study habits that result to achieving academic success. And we’re not only…
It’s Monday again! I’m not sure how long I can keep this sched and endure the exhaustion from 12-hour shifts and my recurring vertigo. All I know is that I will do my best and persist for my kids. You can do it, Ice. Remember, while some graduate out there is desperately looking for a job in the busy streets of Metro Manila, you are working with several clients in the comfort of your home —- in your pajamas, without makeup. Be grateful. Never give up. Worry not about setbacks. Don’t let delays affect you. Work harder. Dream bigger. You’re blessed! Sharing positive vibes! Have an awesome week everyone! :-)
Because I believe that good old family traditions should be passed on across generations, I bought my kids this epic toy and activity books to keep them busy this summer. Aside from scrabble, we used to play with these when we were little. Nobody could beat my father that’s why he was always the game master. So anyway, I’m gonna do the same thing and help my kids with their English. Next week, I’ll also be buying art materials so I can teach them crafts and painting. Let’s see if my left hand is still as good as before. Ready for the summer! :-)
My son is not the type who just sits around and watches TV all day. He’s also not a fan of sleeping after school or what we Filipinos commonly refer to as “siesta”.
My son is not the type who just sits around and watches TV all day. He’s also not a fan of sleeping after school or what we Filipinos commonly refer to as “siesta”. He wants action. He would sneak out of the house while my nanny is busy taking care of Iona and I’m typing away on my computer. He would ride his bike (without the support wheels because he thinks it’s not cool) and then zoom off, chasing after our neighbors’ dogs. Last time, he cut the curtain I just bought using the kitchen scissors. And as if these things aren’t enough to make my blood pressure rise, he played with the stroller’s lever while Iona was on it. I shrieked in horror when I saw my baby girl crying in pain. Sometimes, I tell my hubby how hard it is to understand my son. Whenever he does things like these, I say to myself, “I think I need to prepare bail money as early as now.” Don’t get me wrong. I love him. It just gets really hard to discipline a child sometimes. Isaiah’s a thoughtful boy. He would buy me chocolates from school because he knows I’m a sucker for sweets. He would kiss me good night and say, “Mommy, I love you more.” And so early this morning, he handed me the invitation for his Kindergarten Graduation. I checked the lineup of awardees, saw his name on it and when I looked up, he was beaming at me, waiting for me to congratulate him. He’s Top 2 in class and Top 4 overall and I was, once again, the happiest mom on earth. I guess what I’m trying to say is that our children have weaknesses and strengths that make them who they are. And even if my son isn’t the most behaved kid I know, I am grateful that God gave me a smart, sweet and loving boy who does his best in school because he wants to make his mother happy. Seeing my only son excel in school as early as now simply drives all my exhaustion, stresses and frustrations away. :-)
