They Get Bored Easily

Image
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

It's Been A Year

Lizette at her Debut Party, 2013 Yeah! It's been a year now since my daughter had her most memorable birthday... her debut celebration. She will be turning 19 tomorrow and I am glad she reached this chapter of her life without any health problems, her grades this semester are the highest so far with GPA of 1.64, she's still beautiful and getting more appealing and thank God her status is not yet "IAR" which means, Mama has nothing to worry about boys at this point. Her being a fan girl somehow decreases the possibility of  being involved with someone as of the moment. Her mind is pre-occupied with the incredible cuteness of Luke, Calum, Ashton and Michael.. the four Aussie guys who dominated the music scene with their debut worldwide release of "She Looks So Perfect" in February, 2014 - topping the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the UK. Their self-titled album was released  in June 2014. 5SOS (5 Seconds Of Summer) is a boy band that

Every woman should know her reproductive system not only because it is an essential part of existence but for purposes of prevention and treatment of possible diseases that may be encountered in a lifetime. Being a woman and mother, I'm aware that as I grow older, I will experience a lot of changes, psychological or physical. I passed the stage of adolescence and puberty long time ago. I've already enjoyed the gift of conception and pregnancy. And now, I'm entering a new chapter... my middle age.

What is Adenomyosis

If I remember it right, I've never had abnormal menstrual flow. My monthly period comes on a regular basis but last month, I experienced prolonged menstrual bleeding. I felt so apprehensive that's why, on the eve of my birthday, I have to see an OB-Gyne for consultation. Since my former OB is now in Canada, my records are being turned over to Dra. Joanne V. Legaspi. She's also affiliated with The Medical City and Ardi Health Care Center. Dra. Legaspi advised me to undergo TVS (Trans-vaginal Ultrasound) for accurate diagnosis of my condition. I took the ultrasound immediately. Thanks to my hubby who's always willing to accompany me in times like this.

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: At age 24 months At age 34 months At age 40 months Kiko's Nursery Report Card 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. Kiko's vision of our floor plan Colors and shapes are amongst his line of interest. He would always get his color pencils or markers to draw anything. He loves to doodl

Believe It or Not - RUMORS of the Past Part 1

These are only few of the controversial issues about famous people and intriguing facts about historical events that may fascinate your senses as I am overwhelmed by the thought of traveling back in time... if only I have the power. Not every detail of the past had  been written or documented. There are missing links that keep challenging our intellect up to this time. Countless mysteries that will remain unknown and inexplicable. ABRAHAM LINCOLN is gay. -According to Ms Sylvia Rhue's post in Huffington : "Over 16,000 books have been written about Abraham Lincoln, our greatest president. Many of these books either allude to or specifically report on Lincoln's ambiguous relationships with men. Lincoln lived with and shared a bed with Joshua Speed for four years, and they remained friends years after they no longer lived together. He also had a close relationship with Captain David Derickson, who would stay with Lincoln overnight at the Soldier's Home (a retrea
