There are days when...

For some weird parent-ethic reasons, I cannot post what happened...

but I feel really elated.

As a parent, there are some life events that you buckle up for.  Competitions and academic achievement do not really match up.  There will always be life events that you can expect will throw bad blows to your kid, and you want to be around, just in case you'll be needed.

And you find you aren't.  And your kid is handling himself pretty well.  And you admire his thoughtfulness and class.

Every once in a while, despite the sad turn of events for him, I feel that I'm raising my kid well.

And then I remember, all credit is his alone.  

But still, I can't help but smile when no one's looking.

Well...you can take a little credit. ;) Good for him! I'm sure it's just one in a lifetime of moments, glad he handled himself well.

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,
