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!

Kindergarten Field Day 2017

Kindergarten’s Field Day for 2017 was last Friday, May 19,2017. My husband and I were there to witness Princess M’s participation of sack race, tug of war, sprint and many other activities happened that day.

She did not get any ribbon at all and felt bad for not getting any. I assured her though that it was okay, what’s important is that she enjoyed the activities and she did her best. Told her, that is all that matters!

Below is a picture of her and classmates working so hard in order to win the tug of war which they did. It was kind of funny when she came to me and showed her red palms telling me they hurt from the rope!

Mother’s Day Craft for Mommy

It’s a late upload. Mother’s Day this year fell on May 14,2017. We celebrated by going out to have a dinner at a bbq restaurant in downtown Fort Worth with my co-worker, her son and my two Princesses.

Anyway, Mother’s Day is a special day here in America and children/grandchildren made sure they appreciated their mothers/grandmothers effort to raise them. It’s a day dedicated for mothers to show how important they are in their children’s life.

My princesses did not miss this day. I felt special because they know what’s that day was all about.

Here’s a craft from my firstborn she created in school. I thought it was cool, she really made an effort coloring these print out flowers and handed it to me when I got home from work that day.

Another thing that my second princess did was to fill in the blanks her teacher gave her and had Mrs. Brown re-wrote it for her.
Megan guess my age though and made me 12 years older. She knows me well for I love purses a lot!

Bright and Colorful

Each color that we like shows that there are certain things we like. If you choose blue, you mostly admire the nature (ocean and seas) and the sky. Red for love and the flowers and etc. However, if you’re a musician and you have your own favorite color, you can add these top selling colored guitar strings at Musiciansfriend on your guitar. You now have a choice to use DR Strings NEONs are super bright color-coated strings that sound clear, bright and musical.

These Multi-Color Medium Electrics are an excellent idea for those learning to play or just wanting to add pizazz to their rig. Easy to fall in love with and matches with their remarkable sounds.

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!

Matching Dresses

It has been a while now since I did not buy my Princesses clothes and shoes. They still have a lot of nice dresses sitting in their closet. But then when we went to the outlet mall last weekend, Princess M got enticed with this pretty pink shoes, my Filipina co-worker gifted her a dress and picked yellow for her, I told her that purplish pink would go best with the shoes so we chose the latter.

Later on, as we kept on walking I realized that the big Princess does not have anything for her so we went back to Gymboree and bought her a matching dress as the little one, only with no shoes. At the end of the day, they were both happy and like the dress color very much. I am glad, I bought them something new for it makes them happy.

 

Shoes only cost $12.99, same goes with the dress, $12.99 each! Not so bad and yes, I believe it is a good deal.

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.
