Making Beds

I'm pretty impressed that the Obamas are fully intending for their daughters to make their own beds. More so for their plans to make the White House into a GreenHouse (make it more energy-efficient, that is). Whoot!

Just goes to show how much of regular folks the Obamas are. I lurv eet!

But really, if us mommybloggers will also move in to the White-Green House I won't be surprised if we'll do the same. At least, I will. Why will I miss the chance to torture my boys less ;-)

I do not believe in handing out chores as punishment. Chores should be part of everyday life. But I can't help but laugh as imagine, if I were in the White bHouse, and the boys get real bad, a possible punishment would be to "Clean the entire house!" I think that'll pretty much bring their tongues out at the end of punishment day.

Diliman Preparatory School QC Rocks

Summary: This is a School Review, based on our family's experience.

If you are looking for an excellent school in Quezon City for your elementary or high school children, Diliman Preparatory School along Commonwealth offers up-to-date competitive curriculum in Mathematics, Sciences and Reading. They also have excellent extra-curriculum activities that will help give your children a holistic education.




Last week, at my son's academic achievement awarding ceremony (he got the no.1 honor in class again, yay! Good job, son!), the CEO of the school talked to the parents about the achievements of the school for the year, and the changes for next year.

To be quick about it, this year, Diliman Preparatory School:
- started with the Singaporean Math curriculum
- used the very new Learning by Design Reading program (it's a research-based and assessment-based reading curriculum)
- I noticed they introduced Robotics this year
- There are more changes I approve of but I won't list …

Another birthday...

I can't believe my teen is now 15!

I saw my old post about Isiah's birthday in 2008 and wow... time does fly.


Well, Isiah's 15 today and things are still quite smooth sailing.

No honors in school this year, but that's alright.
He is passionate about his music more than ever. I admire that he regularly sets aside time to study and practice music on his own.
He is not as relationship-crazy or girl-crazy the past months, I wonder why.
He is totally into new-age yikies like meditation and chakras.
Seems like he is generally enjoying his school and friends.

I do bare my fangs for him mostly over his chore of washing the dishes, but that's about it. Yeah, boring.

But for this kind of boring, I am totally grateful. Yay.



Happy birthday son. Thank you for honoring my life with your presence. Love always,
