Jenika's 1st Day in School

I was waiting for this day since we enrolled our little girl last May.  I even filed for a leave to ensure that I will accompany her on her 1st day.  We've decided to let her go to school this early since we want to take advantage of the fact that at this stage her mind still works like a sponge, absorbing lots of things quickly.

A lot may roll their eyes and even comment why we are sending her this early to school.  For me, the answer is simple.  Education is something parents' should invest on.  And at this stage, toddlers still think that school is all about fun and play.  So, why not take that as an opportunity to immerse your child to learning?


The day started not so great for my little girl.  She woke up with a "sumpong", probably due to the fact that she have been crying her eyes out last night.

I let her watch TV and play for a few minutes and told her to eat before taking a bath.  It's a good thing my mom cooked her favorite "sinigang".  After eating, we took a bath together and I dressed her up.  It took us about an hour to get ready.

We finally arrived in school 10 minutes earlier.  There were already kids waiting outside.  When the teacher called the kids inside, I accompanied Jenika to the door and told her that we will wait for her outside. Amazingly, she didn't cry! Yay! It was a good thing because when she had her trial class last summer, she cried before going inside.

The class lasted for an hour, since it was the first day.  The teacher went outside and gave us some details on what happened inside the class.

I was so happy for my little girl and a bit sad at the same time.  My baby is growing up fast and soon, she will be on her own.  I just wish she would grow up to be a good girl.

My In My Womb 3d/4d Ultrasound Experience

Last Saturday, we had our 6th checkup with our OB-Gynecologist. So far, everything's ok. I passed my Glucose Challenge test, but I still need to cut on my sugar intake. We were also able to hear our little one's heartbeat. Next week I will be having my Tetanus Toxoid shot -- scary!!

After the checkup, we proceeded to Makati for our scheduled 3d4d ultrasound at In My Womb. I have heard lots of great reviews about this ultrasound center so we have decided to have our ultrasound there. Their center is located at 2f, The Link Bldg, Ayala Makati. The building is beside Landmark. Before proceeding, we had our lunch first at Ineng's Special BBQ -- great food, terrible customer service!

After eating, we then proceded to the 2nd level. We were greeted by a courteous nurse and I told her that I was scheduled for an ultrasound with Dra. Ramos. I would actually like to have the procedure done by the owner, Dra. Shiela Illescas, since i ha…


What do you think of when you hear the word "Transformation"?

For me it means changing and evolving for the better.  But how does it really feel like when one undergoes the transformation process?  

One thing's for sure -- it is not an easy process.  When you undergo a transformation, it means going back to basics.  Unlearning what you know and accepting new ways.  Sometimes transformation can hit you pretty bad that you think it is not necessary.  But in the long run, it is always important to understand the need for such change.  You may not believe and understand it now, but at least try to give it a chance.

Sometimes hearing the word scares me.  Not because I am afraid of what it brings, but because I am too comfortable where I am now and I think any movement will cause me to fall down.  But hey, I have been through tougher times.  And I will surpass this for sure.
