KIKO is Turning Five

Five years back, I glanced at this cute chubby face for the very first time. From day one up to this writing, he never fails to amuse me... the way he thinks and speaks out his thoughts, the way he moves and reacts to situations. He has this prominent character that makes our lives more interesting and tiresome at the same time.

I was bound to be a mother for the last time with him and I will surely miss being pregnant and feel the first trimester hang-ups. Having three wonderful kids is a treasure itself. Being a mother is priceless.

Looking for a nanny is no longer relevant. I can't imagine anybody to take care of him other than myself. It's not that he's so dependent on me as normal kids do with their moms but, I guess I'm the one who is dependent on him.

Few weeks ago, he thought of sleeping with his Kuya KD. For the first time, he's out of our bed. My husband and I were unable to sleep soundly. Maybe, we are not used to be separated with Kiko at night. It seems that I am not ready for it, yet. I need more time to prepare myself for that kind of adjustment.

The 2-night trial ended when Kiko suddenly felt an ache in his mouth and he had to wake up in the middle of the night, knocked at our room's door just to tell me that he's not feeling well. That's when he got back to our bed and slept with us again. He needed me... he still longs for a mother's touch, my TLC.

If you are an avid reader of my blog, you probably knew KIKO and his little milestones from being an adorable baby to a smart little toddler. I was able to document some of his "little big moments" in these following posts:

He started to attend school as early as 2 1/2 years old. He's good in written examinations but according to his moderators from pre-nursery and nursery classes, he's quiet and seldom participated actively in discussions. I guess this greatly affected his class standing.  He got an average of 88.97 which could have been higher.

Anyways, Kiko is just turning 5 this coming June so there's a long, long way to go for this young kiddo to develop his skills and abilities.

Colors and shapes are amongst his line of interest. He would always get his color pencils or markers to draw anything.

He loves to doodle and scribble like any normal growing kid his age but his art works seem to amaze me because he prefers the unconventional. Plain and simple kinda bore him.

Painting using water color is another hobby of this little master. There's this one place in SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City called Kiddy's Arts Town that he regularly visits where his creativity and artistry are being utilized. His favorite, Rubber Art Color painting where he will choose a drawing pattern and fill it up with different colors. Afterwards, it will be cooked in the oven for 30 seconds and cooled it off with water.
