Sisters

SISTERS ARE TWO DIFFERENT FLOWERS FROM THE SAME GARDEN…

I hope these girls will continue to be good sisters and best friends when they grow old. It will be my utmost happiness to see them get along, although they fight at times, I just think that’s pretty normal for siblings. I could not ask for more. I am blessed to have these Princesses in my life. They are good and well-behaved kiddos.

Progress Reports from School

I am very glad my Princesses have adjusted pretty well in their new country school. Seemed to me they never transferred school for there is no sign of depression or anything negative about their school. In fact, my Princesses thrive and continue to do good in school.

Just last Wednesday this week I picked up their report card and both teachers are very impressed with the Princesses which of course, my pleasure to hear. They make me really proud.

Princess M is an accelerated reader, third grade level and the big Princess just received a note yesterday that her teacher is nominated her to be in the GT ( gifted and talented) program. This is the second time a teacher has nominated her. Apart from that, she got accepted in UIL weeks ago, University Interscholastic League.

I am expecting the same for Princess M too as she is as smart as the big sister.

Thank God for these Princesses who never cease to get good grades in school.

New Fave Thing to Do

Here’s our two Princesses in their bikes last weekend. I like the idea that they actually go out there and do some physical activity like riding in their bikes on the trail or just in the front yard. This seems to be way far different than their city life before. In Summer, they’d just hang in the house and do electronics all day.

Here in our new house, they have a lot of explorations to do around the property. They also acquired two chickens from our family friend to check every afternoon when they return home from school. But the most important thing is that these girls are moving!

We went out to use the trail for the first time last Saturday. They loved it and so they asked again if they can go ride their bike last Sunday, so as much as I want to be outdoors and get my exercise, I did not hesitate to say yes and we were on the trail for at least 50 minutes. Got home refreshed and probably burned some calories.

Here’s photos of my Princesses proudly pedaling!

School Year 2017-2018 Has Begun

8/21 which was yesterday was the first day of school for our 1st and 4th graders. They are in their new school in the country. I heard so many positive news from our first grader, I can’t wait to hear more this afternoon when she comes home.

As for our 4th grader, she wasn’t so enthusiastic to go to school yesterday due to being unwell. I was a bit worried that she might puke in school or something for she really wasn’t looking really good when we dropped her off in the classroom yesterday. Before we left, I told the teacher that Jadyn wasn’t feeling well and she responded to me that she would call me. I have waited all day for that call but fortunately, there wasn’t any.

Meaning, Jadyn got well and did fine yesterday. She told me a little about how her day went and that she found her first friend in another section named Chloe.

Anyway, second day of school today. Our morning started rough because there’s Jadyn again acted like she was sick, she had no appetite eating breakfast but forced her to eat some of the food I gave her, of course it didn’t go smoothly. Had to raise my voice and lost my temper on her. She went to school unhappy. We shall see what’s gonna be her next excuse when she comes back this afternoon.

So far things are good in our household.

Princess M Graduated Kindergarten Today!

Our Princess M, who is soon to be 6 years old graduated kindergarten today. Proud mommy I am because she has done an excellent job in school this school year, 2016-2017. Proof are the certificates she garnered today!

Good thing I am no longer working and was able to dress her up with one of her favorite dresses, the red Kids Bowknot Beads Ruffles Lace Princess Party Wedding Dress  shown in the picture below. Looking gorgeous is of utmost importance to her so I must do my best dressing her like a Princess. Someday she will remember mommy as the one who bought her beautiful dresses.

I am just beyond proud right now knowing how my little girl loved school and she showed it through her certificates. I wish her well in first grade and that she will continue to excel in school next year. I love Bey Meg Meg so much!

Princess Megan’s Drawings

Since two years old, Princess M started with just simple smiley drawings that expressed her feelings on that particular moment of day or time. When she is bored, she just grabs pencil and paper and start entertaining herself by drawing mostly facial expressions through smileys.

As she gets older, her drawing developed into different faces with expressive eyes and smiles. She had drawn quite a lot of faces already and there are some drawings that really caught our attention. Two of which are pictured below.

This girl amazes me for she practically knows how to draw compare to me. I can only do stick figures, while she, on the other hand are into faces. The drawing on the right is like she drew herself. Same hair length and color, long eyelashes, almond-shaped eyes and all. I am but a proud mommy of my girl who are into drawing!

Princess M and Carrots

There’s a relation between Princess M and the crunchy baby carrots. She likes it a lot, like a lot! She makes baby carrots her snacks instead of just other junks we have in the pantry. I am one proud mommy here because how many small children do you know love munching on something healthy?

I saw this little Princess last night having a good time watching tv, legs crossed and snacking on carrots. I was amazed at how she made herself comfortable without bothering me to get the carrots, instead, she went to the kitchen and served herself. What a good girl she is! I found her in this position so cute, don’t care about the world!

Washing Dishes

This is Princess J, as you can see, she is washing dishes in this picture. I made her wash her own and mine’s dirty dishes just so she will not forget how to do it properly. It has been a long time since she’d did that and she seemed to forget what I taught her before.

She is years older compared to me when I started doing this chore so I am kind of guilty for not pursuing her into washing dishes every time she is done eating. This is my way of teaching my kid to be responsible so she can take care of herself when she becomes an adult or when leaving for college.

Things she can do so far is showering herself (with occasional mommy’s nagging), fold undies and socks, hang her uniform in the closet, wash dishes and pick up some stuff from the floor. If I were to be strict with her, I would let her do all the things I do in this house but I don’t want her to think she is being punished.

Princess M can Now Ride a Big Girl’s Bike

February 27,2017 was one of the most significant days I will not forget because it was the day Princess M decided to use her big sister’s outgrown bike (take note, without training wheels) outside. All she needed were a few pushes and she drove off like a pro.

At first, she was biking wobbly, got off the bike a few times, tiptoeing and trying to balance on the grass. But guess what? It didn’t take her long to get used of the bike and comfortably ride many rounds on an empty concreted lot next to our house.

I was amazed of this girl’s determination for deciding she wanted to use a big girl’s bike. And from that day, she was pedaling like a pro. I captured the first moments of her milestone that day pictured below.

Before she could use this bike, I had this toddler “cruzee” bike used for review without pedals surely helped her a lot. It is a bike that helps kids to just cruise with their feet and learn how to balance by lifting their feet off the ground as they continue to move forward.

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.

Second photo below is a story about a burglar stealing money from the bank- with band aid. The black character in the blue sky is the PD helicopter facing the burglar with band aid from crow bar with money bag.
