What If God Answered His Prayer?

I asked my son to include my intentions (to find a job within the week) in his prayer before bedtime. Instead, he asked God to give me a job next year. When I asked him why, he told me that he likes having me at home. Now if only we're not heading towards difficult times, I would have liked that too.

McDonald's Kiddie Crew Workshop

I enrolled Koy in the McDonald's Kiddie Crew Workshop last summer. For an investment of P500.00, he got a bag, cap, ID, T-shirt, free spaghetti meal for 5 days, and activity stuff too. His favorite part of the whole workshop was his time in the kitchen where he learned about how they cooked his favorite crispy fried chicken. His least favorite is having to stand in the counter and greet everyone a "Good Morning, Ma'am/Sir" with a smile.

Summer camps are alternative learning experiences for kids. It teaches them new things and broadens their understanding of how things work.

I asked Koy it he'd still want to enrol at McDo Kiddie Crew Workshop next year. Naaaaaaa, he said ha's had enough of it. Maybe we'll try out the Junior Forester program at the Negros Forest and Ecological Foundation Mini Forest and Zoo!

Living the Dream

Living the Dream.
Koy had his fauxhawk on a Saturday.
Went to church with it on a Sunday.
Gone bald on Monday.

The do may have been gone.
But the rush, the laughter and the fun lingered
And shall be well remembered.

What else can a 5-year old kid say but, Ooooops!

The Wedding (Manolito and Joy)

We attend Joy and Manolito's wedding last Saturday, 10th of October. Everybody dressed up to the nines as the motif was Black Tie. Even the hubby had to forego his usual denims and collarless shirt for the polo, slacks and dapa which he only gets to wear once in a blue moon. As for me, there was nothing fancy in my closet so I settled for my little black dress, which turned out to be not so little anymore LOL!.

Anyways, Koy got the privilege of marching down the aisle and play coin bearer. We were all excited to see him in his coat and tie. And my oh my, he didn't disappoint us! He looked very comfortable in it!

Wall-E Spotted

The workings of the trash compactor robot named Wall-e has been discovered near the peaceful Rolling Hills Memorial Chapel in Bacolod City. Is it not that it is supposed to start doing its work on 2105? Have we been fast-tracking our wasteful ways thereby laying the grounds for the establishment of a super-mega landfill that necessitates the abandonment of the earth we live in and the death of all life forms? Has doomsday come before Christmas?

Echos lang! Been meaning to post this pictures online for the longest time ever! I've been passing by the shortcut road at 27th Lacson Street to evade the traffic at Crossing Ramos since time in immemorial. But I never really got excited about these pile of junks until Wall-E.

I love this movie, Koy loved it too. He was 4 when he first watched it and he was deeply moved (spoiler alert! read at your own risk, if you haven't seen the movie yet) during that scene when Eve didn't recognize Wall-E. It's a good movie to watch with children. It teaches kids about the environment, waste management, learning to cope with whatever blessings you have, resourcefulness and companionship.

Wall-E is now available on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Order and own one now! >>>

The Proposal

For our reading time before bed last night, Koy picked My First Bible which retells the stories of the Bible with illustrations for kids. Before we started our reading, we had this conversation (translated to English):

"Ma, when I grow up, I want to be a priest"


"I will be a priest but I will still live with you"

"Oh no, baby, when you become a priest you will be where your church is. That will be your home. Just like Uncle Fr. Noni, his church is in Rome so he lives there. But you can always ask us to come with you wherever you will be assigned."

"Why does it have to be like that?"

"Because that's just the way it is."

Then we started reading about The Creation.

Just thought I'd write this one here so if ever the angels like his idea and give it a push, I would have something to share during his Ordination Party. LOL!
