Free Download of Breastfeeding Book in Support of World Breastfeeding Week 2014

My son Trev is now 2 years and 9 months old, is already in school and I am happy to say that he's still breastfeeding until now. Yes, 33 months into it and like I always say, no plans of weaning him yet, as long as he still wants to nurse from me, I would be very happy to continue with our journey. It's absolutely worth it! We're really very thankful for this blessing.

Anyway, remember the very inspiring book BREASTFEEDING: A Journey Worth Taking where I feel really honored that our breastfeeding story of triumph (and other moms' from different walks of life, too) was published? Well, I have great news for all of you moms and would-be moms! The book is now available on Amazon Kindle!

Georcelle Dapat-Sy: Dancer, Mentor, Mother

Teacher G talks about unlocking latent talent in young kids 

Georcelle Dapat-Sy is first and foremost a dancer – mention “dance” and her name is bound to crop up in the entertainment circle of the local industry. Her dedication and commitment to her craft has earned her a niche in a saturated industry that will make room for someone who has worked hard to distinguish her talent. However, Georcelle’s talent in grace in motion is not confined to the stage or the studio alone; it spills over into her personal life, in her mothering, and ultimately in her mentoring of the next generation at large.

Once again, Georcelle gets involved in Promil’s Pre-School i-Shine Talent Camp, which aims to tap the inert talents of the very young and to help them wield the potency that they hold inside.

“The Promil Pre-school program is about recognizing talent. When the potential is seen in a young person, it is categorized,” Georcelle says. Whether innate intelligence or a natural inclination for arts, the mother of three is keen on picking out kids who are naturals in dancing. And this is when the fun starts.

Georcelle knows the benefits of early intervention or starting the mentoring while they’re soft and pliant. She herself started out that way.

Bento Snack Baon: Hearts & Circles, Etc.

Hello there! How are you all doing? I hope you're all safe after the storm Glenda. Trev's classes were suspended for two days last week but now, we're back on track although there are still occasional rains like today. 

Anyway, here's the bento snack baon I prepared for the little one three weeks ago! Huhu, yeah, that long ago. As in super back log na ito. 
Monday: Hearts and circles. Well, I just noticed that this baon is composed of both hearts and circles, so I named it that. Haha! Heart-shaped cheese sandwich, heart-shaped tamagoyaki, circle oatmeal cookies, and mango balls. Even his yogurt drink is strawberry flavored, which happened to have a shape like a heart, too. And oh, I used heart-shaped food picks pala! Haha!

Trev In School Uniform

Taking a picture of Trev in school uniform is a challenge! Haha! I don’t know why but whenever he’s wearing his uniform and I ask him to pose for a photo, he would automatically refuse and would run in and out of the house just to hide! Ang cute lang, hihi! 

Anyway, he’s always excited to go to school. As you can see in the photo, he already got our door keys and was trying to open the door. He just loves school and we’re so glad he does. He always says "Go to school! Go to school! Let's go!".

My effort in trying to take a picture of him while wearing his uniform (and suspenders, hihi!).
Tinatakbuhan talaga ako!

Trev's Home Reading Nook

One of Trev's activities in play school is called "Show And Tell". They do it every Friday. On their first week, his teacher asked the class to bring a picture of their home reading nook.

Trev loves books. Too sad that the only store here at Waltermart that sells preloved children's books has already closed. Huhu.

Anyway, when Trev started schooling, he became even more inlove with his books. As in he would ask me or his Tatay to read him books almost non-stop. We'd read several books in one sitting. Haha! And we're really happy about that. Now, he doesn't even remember he used to love watching cartoons (although they're educational cartoons naman like Word World). He prefers reading his books. If he's not reading, he's painting or tracing or playing with his building blocks. 

So, here's what we submitted to his teacher for his home reading nook project. This project made me wish na sana Trev has a book shelf of some sort at home. Sigh. Wala kasi eh. And I really want to buy more books for him pa. He just loves them talaga! Sana pala when his god parents were asking me what gifts I want for Trev, I should have said books na lang. Haha! :-P

The first two pictures were taken at our living room. That's the toddler chair and table we bought for him when he was more than a year old pa lang. We just changed the cover lang and put plastic cover na rin. :-)
