Winnie the Witch

Sunday, November 30, 2014

For Via's end of book month book character parade in school, we decided she would go as Winnie the Witch. Actually, it was the easiest among the list of books the kids were to choose from.

It turned out well didn't it, complete with broom and magic wand. She was especially happy with the pearls  :)


Lost First Baby Tooth

Who lost her tooth today?

The lower front tooth has been loose for a couple of weeks now. Finally today, she pulled it out herself.

Happy that she doesn't have any cavities. I hope same with her coming permanent teeth.


Intentional Parenting

Saturday, November 29, 2014

In all my life I have never participated in any outreach mission in depressed areas. When Yolanda happened, I wanted to volunteer for crisis debriefing and stress/trauma counselling but that was shut down before I could sign up.

Today, Via and I joined my office's outreach mission in Isla Pulo in Malabon. It was a very enriching experience for me and I hope my daughter learned something from it too. It IS better to give than to receive. 

Since I had Via, I made a conscious effort to change because if I wanted a daughter that was grounded, giving, compassionate, patient, respectful and God-centered, then I had to be that way too. Which I wasn't. I grew up spoiled and indulged and only thought of myself. I sound really awful, don't I?  I wanted Via to not be like me. I'm glad I learned more about intentional parenting from CCF (Christ's Commission Fellowship) and their Counterflow parenting workshop.

It's still a struggle to change but just looking at my daughter's face reminds my to get back on track whenever I am backsliding.
