Kids in Stripes at Fridays

Saturday, May 25, 2013

Thank you Becky for sponsoring the Twerp's stint in Fridays. It's P1,000 for four days that included a T-shirt, meals and snacks, and unlimited iced tea (she knows she's not allowed but took advantage of the opportunity!) or lemonade. Sobrang sulit!

When Bex and I passed by Fridays and saw the posted for "Kids in Stripes", we were told slots were limited and we should enroll her as soon as possible. I think about two per week.

For Via's batch in mid May, I counted 8 kids. Ang dami siguro gusto mag enroll that they gave in and accepted everyone.

She met new friends, did artwork, "cooking" in the kitchen which was in fact making their own lemonade drinks, oreo's and milk, helping serve drinks and food, and give menus. Via broken plate pero okay lang daw. For their "graduation" the had a song and dance number that they did outside the restaurant so shoppers in the mall could watch. The Twerp loved it!

Via enjoyed Kids in Stripes at Fridays. She was the youngest at 4 and got the "Mona Lisa Smile" award for always smiling.

Mother's Day with the Twerp

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Not that we really celebrate Mother's Day. Even when I was a kid, we never did. What Via and I did was make breakfast together.

Via and I watched a video of Dr. Maya Adam from my Child Nutrition course at Coursera.org. It showed Dr. Maya Adam making breakfast with her two-year old son. I think it was called Egg in a Hole. She said, "Mommy, let's make this for breakfast."  And so we did on Mother's Day.

What you need:

Big, thick bread; 1 egg; Butter; Salt and pepper to taste

The how:

Cut a hole in the middle of the bread big enough for the egg to fit in. Heat up 1 tablespoon of butter in  a pan. Add the bread. Break the egg in the bread hole. Wait until the egg solidifies a bit then turn it over. Once the egg is dry, remove from the pan. Enjoy with your little one. Sarap!

After our breakfast, we got ready to attend my nephew Dwight's binyag. We reconnected with Titas and Titos and other relatives. We only see our relatives during "big" events like baptisms, deaths, weddings, etc. I should really make an effort to see them more. 

Our relatives marveled at how unlike me she is. I was a painfully shy kid who stayed in one corner and prayed nobody would notice me or talk to me. Via, on the other hand, was dancing all over the place and talked to everyone who said hello to her.  I say it's good for her.

When we went home, Via wanted to go biking which we did. After biking, she wanted to go swimming and we did. We had a full day and went to bed early, tired but happy.

Summer Camp Again!

Sunday, May 12, 2013

I was eager for Via to join summer camp again this year. It will be her second. She's going knowing that two of the friends she made at last year's summer camp will also be there which added to the excitement. The 3 of them became best friends. The summer camp is organized by our church and will be at La Vista Resort in Pansol, Laguna.

This year there were 6 from the Kinder Sabbath School. Activities this year were all indoors: arts and crafts, bible lessons and games. There was a game of stepping on a newspaper. Our team was made up of mommies and their kids, 5 kids and 5 moms. We all had to fit on the newspaper as it got smaller and smaller.  We won! We carried our kids on our backs and shoulders to fit unlike the other teams with bigger kids.

After the camp activities were done, kids were allowed to go swimming, visit the zoo and the playground. Via couldn't get enough of the playground especially because it had a castle where she pretended to be Rapunzel.
