Today was Lyndel’s First Day in School. I’m thankful that Becca and I have been discussing Lyndel’s logistics for weeks now that when I got home last night, all his school essentials were already packed and set aside. Well, all except for Lyndel’s snack box which was my assignment. I was also happy that Lyndel was already inside the room, getting ready to sleep at 8pm – he fell asleep at around 8:45pm or so. It was a good start for us, coming from a kid who usually sleeps at 10pm. As working parents, we had our reasons for keeping Lyndel late at night as that was the only time we could play, read stories, sing songs etc. As Coach Pia Acevedo said in last year’s Expo Mom, it’s okay for young kids with office-working parents to sleep late just so we can bond. Anyway, he doesn’t have to get up early the next day. But now, things will be a little different as Lyndel needs to wake up at 6am everyday.

The Best of 2012 (in pictures)

I was browsing through my Facebook albums and I can’t help but sigh and think: “Lyndel grows so fast”. These photos below represent the best of 2012, although I still have to add more :)

For starters,

Christmas moments 2011

This was our Family Christmas dinner a year ago. Lyndel had just started being independent.

One Sweet Sunday

This Sunday afternoon was my alone time with Lyndel. His Yaya went Christmas shopping while Daddy went to Divisoria to check on something (Heck, he braved the Sunday Christmas shopping crowd! But that’s a different story)

Lyndel and I started our date over lunch. I just woke up from my once-in-a-blue-moon Sunday morning nap. I rustled up a quick lunch from whatever was available in our pantry (our grocery shopping was set in the evening!) I was actually pleased with the results of our super fast pasta dish. I used Century Tuna with Calamansi as the sauce and it turned out great! A light and refreshing lunch indeed! Here’s what I did: Sauteed garlic and onions, added the tuna, a dash of paprika and salt, and a pinch of chili flakes, tossed in the cooked pasta, and viola! Lunchy lunch! [Read more…]

Hello world! :)

I’ve been absent in the blogging world since February and I miss it so much. So much has happened and I have a lot to share :) For starters, why don’t we watch a video of my little boy as he “reads” What’s Fair is Fair (A Muppets storybook)?

Enjoy! :)
