My 9 yr old is Growing Up too Fast

I noticed these days he's staying up later than usual.

He eats more. As in a lot. And frequently.

Plus the eternal issue of growing his hair long is still here.

And of course, as most boys are, he's always out of the house.

His brother remarked earlier today he seems to act older than the other 9 or 10 year olds. So I told him, "When you were in pre-school, your teacher said you also acted older than your age." And she asked me if you were hanging out with older boys, and I said yes, there is an older cousin he hangs out with. "And so now, with your little brother, there's you. So his interests and behavior matches up to yours as well."

Thank goodness, if growing boys grow further away, this one is now making it a point that within the day, he'll somehow sit beside me here at my desk. And we'd talk some about school, his friends, even for just a bit.

He's turning 10 next month so then he's officially entered the 2-digit age stage.

Very soon enough, I'll have to return this baby to the stork, in exchange for a growing monkey.

It happens. At least he's making time for his mom. That's sweet...and rare. ;)

I love that he still wants to hang with his mom though.

We're not there yet with the kids growing up too fast but in a blink of an eye, they went from brand new blobs to talking, joke telling characters. I love it.

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,

You Know They've Grown Again When...

I've never done this to my kids, but some parents tell their kids "If you're bad, I will go away."

I knew my 10 year old has grown again when I told him before my night out, "If you're going to be so difficult, I will stay in and cancel." Watch me watch you the whole night.

Yeah, that pretty much got him behaved. I was able to go out. ;-)
