They Get Bored Easily

Kids of today's generation tend to get bored and feel exhausted easily. Sometimes, they can hardly do things productive. Modern technology dominates their lives. Mobile phones and other handheld gadgets seem to be a constant shadow that should follow them anywhere they go.

They can access the web anytime they want. They can watch favorite music videos, chat with friends and play online games. Everything seem to be open and out with only one click of a button or one swipe on the screen.

Kids can do a lot but can be easily wasted and drained. There should be other activities that will make them busy like sports, outdoor games and exercise.

Parents should know how to deal with this dilemma and manage to control or set limitations in order to avoid conflicts. Being understood is different from just being heard. I told my children that they should be responsible for their actions. I always remind them that these devices may bring negative effects if used excessively.

I know, it's a struggle to establish constant and close connection with our children nowadays but we need to be cautious in guiding them on whatever activities they may get into. Our kids should prioritize their studies over these addictive distractions.



His Love for ART

These are some of Kiko's abstract creations. His love for drawing using crayons is just fascinating. Almost everyday, he would get his sketch pad and starts to do random designs. He draws outline of any shape then fills them up with various colors.

His love for art mainly focuses on colors. he even asked me to give him a present this coming Christmas. He wishes to have 96-colored Crayola crayons. He wants different shades. More crayons mean more colorful art pieces like these.

He even provides titles for his artworks so, I have to document this little milestone of this little artist of mine. Maybe, 10 years from now, he will be interested in reading my blog posts about him and take him to a nostalgic recollection of his childhood.


Cuteness Overload

KIKO and the icing on his face
Icing on his face
Do you think this photo is cute? Well, you're absolutely right. This is what I call, "cuteness overload".

If you are a parent with young kids around, I'm sure you have done some naughty things that made them chuckle and giggle like showing them your wackiest face, playing peekaboo, imitating animals' sounds or any silly demonstration that may tickle their little minds. 

There’s no better stress-buster than a baby laugh. It's music to our ears and the sound it makes drives us crazy. They are just adorable.

That's my youngest son in the picture when he's one year old. His Papa smeared some chocolate "icing on his face". The smile is so naive and innocent. He didn't even know that his Papa's making fun of him. 

This was taken during our summer outing in Laguna and happened to be his older brother's birthday.

Everything is open to serve you

This second photo is epic... That's Kiko again with his shirt on his head like wearing a bonnet. He looks like a scavenger kid in Smokey Mountain.

Obviously, "everything is open to serve you"... his eyes, nose and mouth are in perfect coordination.

I love to take photos of my children. They are the most beautiful kids on earth. I love to see their smiles especially during infant and toddler years like these two pictures of my youngest, very candid and gullible.
