The Princesses’ Christmas Wish List 2016

My first born, wrote her wish list months before Christmas but her bedroom is a mess, it is buried under those rubble in her bed room so I asked her again to create another wish list which she did on that same night I asked. Here’s what she got on her list. That is a lot, man. I tell yeah! Of course, not all on the list will be granted. They are all just toys and she already got a lot of it in the back room.

And the one below is my hand written wish list for the little Princess since she cannot quite read and write yet other than her name and a few short-word. She dictated the items on her list to me. Doesn’t need many but hey, they cost a lot of money if I were to buy all of them which is not going to happen.

Pumpkin Art 2016

In celebration of Halloween, I gave my Princesses something to remember with and something to do in this time of the year. I opted for them to paint the little pumpkins black and whatever color they choose to go with it rather than carving jack-o-lantern because it is easier and less messy.

Unlike carving pumpkins, it takes a lot of effort just to take out all the seeds out plus the carving. I don’t want them to go through that and for sure, they want my help too which I couldn’t do yesterday as I was scheduled to cook food for them good for one week. So while they were working on their pumpkins outside, I was also busy making dinner in the kitchen.

Here are pictures of my Princesses being busy, making their creative minds work. I see the outcome is gorgeous, black pumpkins with colorful dots. I find it uncommon.

Pionner Andrew Jones Bookshelf Loud Speakers

I use my laptop a lot and there were times I wished I had a better and high quality speakers to use with it for a better sound of videos and music that I watch on my computer. All I have right now is the built-in speakers of my laptop and you know, they are not loud and sometimes produce hissing sound depending on the video I am watching.

I wish that I could buy myself this pioneer andrew jones The SP-BS22-LR compact speakers from Pioneer are ideal as computer speakers, stereo speakers for listening for pleasure, or part of a multi-channel home theater system. They deliver a wide frequency response and sophisticated sound quality regardless of the source for Christmas. I will be delighted.

Princess M’s Drawing Progression

Princess M at age 5 years and a half have done a lot of interesting drawings these past few days. She would draw something, color it and tell us the story behind it. It is amazing how her creative mind works because I, myself would not be able to come up with an interesting story each time nor can I draw.

There is this favorite youtube video or game called Five Nights at Freddy’s that she loves watching a lot and eventually, she could not contain herself from drawing some of the characters which turned out pretty, in my eyes.

First Photo below are FNAF characters; Freddy, Chicha and Bonnie.

Home Cooked Lunch

My Princesses eat breakfast at home before going to school. And they also bring home cooked meals for lunch and they have asked me for that simply because they prefer mommy’s cooking than school cafeteria food.

I feel fortunate to be able to serve my children fresh food from home, that way, I am sure what they are getting are good food and not just some junks, empty-calorie and useless food. I believe children learn better if they are fed with the right food.

I also feel glad that when they go to school, they are full with healthy breakfast, because if you would see what the school offers for the children, they just give them cereal, cinnamon roll, milk, a few slices of fruit. I would not want my children to munch on cereal, because what is in it? Just sugar and the worst food you can ever give to school children.

For lunch, they have different meals they offer each day. Most of which are Mexican food which my children are not so fond of. They are raised by a Filipino mother so you can expect, what they are eating at home are different from the outside world.

I make sure that they are getting servings of fruits, veggies, protein and carbohydrates. Yes, carbs. Many say it is bad. But hey, children are growing, they move a lot, they have fast metabolism and carbohydrates is what they need in order to sustain that energy they need throughout the day.

Here’s a sample of what I pack for lunch for them. Some rice topped with breakfast sausages, a portion of broccoli and watermelon. Some days, I give them bread with nutella or grape jam spread, slices of cucumbers, some fried chicken, olives and whatever is available in the fridge.

As a mother, it is my responsibility to feed my children with good, tummy-filling, delicious and delightful foods. Their lunch always come with bottled water, they requested water instead of juice. Ain’t that good?

First Day of School Year 2016-2017

June 22- was the opening of classes here in Texas. The big Princess could not wait to go back to school, she probably got bored at home during summer and she missed her classmates. While the little one, did not want to go to school at first.

Big Princess is now in third grade, the little Princess in kindergarten. I can’t quite believe that I no longer have a baby that stays with me at home. The house is so quiet when they leave to school, it is all new to me and I guess, I just have to get used to it until I can get me a job.

I tried convincing her that school is actually fun, lots of coloring to do, playing, making new friends and a whole lot more. I was a bit worried on that first day that she wouldn’t come with us to school. And fortunately, as good girl as she is, she managed to survive the first day.

When they came home that day, I asked both of them how their first day went. The big one said she had a nice day. And to my surprise, the small Princess, she said “YES, she liked school!” with tongue sticking out, “yungit” in our native language. That was so nice to hear and that somehow eased my worry.

Today is the fourth day since school has started and so far so good. They wake up early, eat breakfast, wash their face, brush teeth, put on their school uniform, tidy up the hair and off to school they go!

This is going to be our daily routine every morning for the entire year until June 2. I love being a momma, although it is tiring to get up early everyday, yet my children are so worth it especially when they take home report cards with high grades in it.

Nowhere Else to Go But the Park

August is always the hardest for me. I suffer so much loneliness, boredom and summer blues. All kinds of negative feelings trapped inside my body. For some reason, my soul wants to be somewhere else but I couldn’t go where it dictates me to go, the Philippines. Well, at least not this year.

The past few weeks me and my children were struggling to fight our boredom. It’s just that, there is not much to do in the house. They stay home all day doing their tablets, I do my online chores and you know when you do the same thing everyday, you get tired with it.

Gladly though, we are surrounded with several nice parks where we live. This photo below just taken two days ago, even if it was raining, the world was gloomy yet we insisted on going out, otherwise, we go crazy.

A good one and a half hours stay at Greenbriar Park was really good. I let the Princesses play at the playground, fed the ducks and just let them be kids. I guess, they loved feeding the ducks with bread. They giggled and amazed at how baby ducks waddle as they walk. Seeing my kids happy gives me joy that even though we live simply, I raise happy and well-behaved girls.

They are my greatest gifts! They give me reasons to live. Thankfully, I have them for when I am lonely in the house, I can just bring them to the mall play area, fast food play area or anywhere else just to kill the time. They give me company on days that I need them.
