Inspired by Hubby's shout out in FB

I saw the post of hubby in fb and it talks about the crayons. They are in  different colors but have to live in the same box......it is how he expressed his greetings for Human Rights Week....I suddenly remember this poem I thought to my Grade 1 students 3 years ago and I was able to teach to my 2 girls....I love the message of this poem.....have time to read and ponder.....

The Crayon Box That Talked


While walking into a toy store the day before today
I overheard a crayon box with many things to say

"I don't like Red!" said Yellow and Green said "Nor do I"
"And no one here likes Orange but no one knows just why"

"We are a box of crayons that doesn't get along
Said Blue to all the others "Something here is wrong"

Well, I bought that box of crayons and took it home with me
And laid out all the colors so the crayons all could see

They watched me as I colored with Red and Blue and Green
And Black and White and Orange and every color in between

They watched as Green became the grass and Blue became the sky
The Yellow sun was shining bright on White clouds drifting by

Colors changing as they touched becoming something new
They watched me as I colored - they watched me till I was through

And when I finally finished I began to walk away
And as I did the crayon box had something more to say

"I do like Red!" said Yellow and Green said, "so do I"
And Blue you were terrific! So high up in the sky

"We are a box of crayons each one of us unique
But when we get together the picture is more complete"

Happy Birthday Mayumi!

  I brought you into this world unexpectedly...

I was so busy taking care to my first bundle of joy, your ate tala
When i was carrying you, there were more of fears i felt
knowing that my time and my life will be divided between you and your ate.


                                             

 Until the day you came,
 You gave me the feeling of not to be afraid

 You showed me that you needed me
 I held you so close to me and say my prayer


From then on, I keep you in my heart always

and I thank God that you are in my life
I thank Him for being perfectly YOU.




You are perfect, and that makes me a PERFECT MOTHER!



On your birthday, I am asking God to bless you
again and again and again.





The combination of your traits.......


talents....

 and personal qualities makes 

You are our amazing gift from God!

We are so very proud of you!

Tatay, Nanay and Ate Tala love you so so much!

Happy Birthday Tala!

     Time flies so fast.....our dear TaLa is now turning 9.
         
         I reallly do not know what to say......I am so clueless
         on what I should write.....my heart is happy, I am sure.

         On your birthday Tala, let me share this with you, from the 
         book I bought especially for you....to answer all your
         questions.....

         " There will be good days and bad days in your life.
            There will be times when you want to laugh and 
            let it all out.
            There will be times when you want to shout out 
            in frustration.
            But don't let the "bad days" get you down.
            Don't let your own limitations or those of others
            around you make you frown.
            Instead, accept your talents as they are.
            Grow each day a little more.
            Learn as much as you can.
            You will find that "limitations" are only guideposts
            that will point you toward an unexpected STAR.

   

 HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU OUR DEAR TALA!

Keep your star shining.

We love you so so much!

Tatay, Nanay and Mayumi

Do not disturb


this what caught my attention as I entered our home from work this afternoon.
My dear Tala wearing her self made "signboard" complete with illustration 
( a face which is seemed to be sound asleep).
As much as I wanted to hug her....I refrain from doing so coz as what the sign says...
Do not disturb.....
Oh, my angels...they never stop making me happy
and what a  good sign to end our day.....

Do not disturb.....as we are having the best sound sleep tonight.....

Good night peeps!

busy bee


....me....yes!  and I love it.....just love it.....

A bucket full of love and guilt....

As much as I want to cook nutritious food for my family, I sometimes fail to do it....I am a working Mom....my 8:00  to 5:00 is solely devoted to work and sometimes I do extend....because I have to even if i don't want.... and during these times,  I am very grateful to fast foods....it's a sweet escape for me.....(huh! sweet escape for the guilt of not being able to cook fresh food for my family)......seeing how they smile bringing home.....a bucket of love for them.........but  a bucket of guilt for me! huh!

Daddy's girl...forever


I regret that he wasn't able to see me grow...
It saddens me that he wasn't with me
 when I am building my own family...
I wonder from time to time
 how would he be like to be a LOLO...
but he leaves a smile on my face
 whenever I think of him.

Today is my Dad's death anniversary...
and I am very thankful to the LOrd,
 for giving me a father like him.
I love you Daddy!
 I will always be a daddy's girl.

Still at home

I still did not report for work...mayumi is sick....will be having an appointment to her pedia later. I hope nothing is serious...her fever is on and off....

Despicable Me


Worth watching this film.
Nothing extra-ordinary but this very light-hearted movie 
made my hubby and 2 kids laugh ----countless times.

On a serious note, this film made me remember 
what my professor in early childhood education told me...
"The child is the father of the man"

A happy childhood is very important to everyone.

Tear's On My Pillow

This morning, I heard hubby singing this.....


Ohhh, this song was one of my faves way back college times
but of course with its new version
but today, as I searched on the original singer
I fell in love with this song again
Just loving how it was sung,
the melody and tune.....

An old song on Saturday morning
What a great day to start our weekend.

Happy Saturday everyone!

What's for dinner?


inspired.


loved.

Mechado for dinner later!

Bon appetit!

Food trip




These are what we ate at Banapple...just a quick food trip after fetching the kids at school and before heading home.

Interrupted connection...

 Happy blogging to me again......

Monday

I am not reporting for work since Monday....due to some personal errands......It's a very relaxing week for me and how I love the feeling of personally taking care of my kids, hubby and home...

Am I ready...

to be a Stay-At-Home-Mom? My heart says "yes" but my pocket says "not yet"........Hubby is very supportive of whatever decision I will make but of course I need to make extra careful on this decision because there is no turning back. At this point, I am praying and asking for God's guidance.

Long Weekend Again

It will be a long weekend again next week....Malacanang has declared September 10, 2010 as a Special Non-Working Holiday as the last day of Ramadan for our Muslim Brothers....and I am thinking on how are we going to spend the long weekend.....Since hubby will be leaving for Baguio on the 8th, we plan to just follow him on the night of 9th and roam around until Saturday....BUT that plan will not push thru coz the gilrs will be having another game, this time at Colegio San Agustin on the 11th....

With the hot weather we experienced today, i totally absolutely would want to go to Baguio...maybe will schedule it some other time....meantime, will be thinking how the kids and I will spend Friday.

My Laundry Girl

.....for several days now, Tala has been asking me that she wants to do her own laundry....so I started teaching her to wash her own undies when taking a bath....and she religiously been doing that.....yesterday she saw me separating the soiled clothes and asked me if she can help....I told her that I will just be washing the hankies, undies and socks....

"I'll take the hankies, Nanay!"...
so I give in to her request.....
take a look at my dear laundry girl 









I just hope that when she grows up and become teenager, she would still have that urge to do the laundry :)

in her notebook.....

is a brilliant mind

.

"I would like to invent a pencil that can change to pen or crayon.
What does it do? When I'm checking it will be a pen.
How will it help people? When my friend likes to draw, write, and check
they don't need to get a pencil, crayon and pen, it will change to crayon".



from: Tala's Seatwork
teacher's comment: "I would like to have one of these! (smiley) Very useful!"

I wanna have one too! especially if it comes from you my dear ate tala!

Friends...

will come and go....that's what I have learned today!

But surely, God will never leave us empty...He will replace everything we have lost...Just remember: If he asks you to put something down, It's because He wants you to pick up something greater!
