Pambansang Araw ng Wika sa PKA

Cool Slideshows!

Sapagkat ang Agosto ay selebrasyon ng buwan ng wika, marampatin ninyong gamitin ko ang ating wikang pambansa kahit dito man lamang sa espesipikong sulating ito ng aking blog. (Wheh!)

Kanina ay ipinagdiwang ng mga mag-aaral ng Power Kids Academy, ang paaralan ni Kuya Jett, ang Araw ng Wika. Nakatutuwang makita sila sa mga kasuotang tagalog na tanging sa panahong ito lamang natin nakikitang karaniwang isunusuot.

Hindi makakaila ang pananabik ng mga magulang, lalong-lalo na mula sa pinakamababang antas ng pag-aaral (Nursery), na dumalo sa naturang pagtitipon, at masaksihan kung paano makisali ang kani-kanilang mga anak sa programa. Ngunit sa aming panghihinayang, sa dahilang ito ay maliit na salo-salo lamang ayon sa pamunuan ng paaralan, nagdesisyon silang limitahan ang programa para sa mga estudyante lamang at hindi kasama ang mga magulang. Gayunpaman, matiyagang naghintay ang mga magulang sa labas hanggang matapos ang pagtitipon.

Sa huli, ang mga ngiti sa labi ng mga bata, lalong-lalo na ang aking Kuya Jett, na natuwa ng husto at nakisali sa kauna-unahang karanasan nya sa kakaibang aktibidades na ito sa kanyang paaralan, ay isang bagay na walang pagsidlan para sa magulang na kagaya ko. Umaasam ako na sana ay maulit ang ganitong ekspireyensa nya.

My Scent of the Moment

I'm a stranger when it comes to LANVIN's line of scents. So when I asked the sales assistant of the perfume section in SM, on what perfume is their current bestseller, without a wink, he recommended me the ECLAT d'ARPAGE of LANVIN.

I could have asked Honey to just buy me in Duty Free when he go home next month. But I emptied the bottle this early, because Jett is using it as well. I actually was looking for other brands like Vera Wang and Kenzo, but along with other famous scents, they are only available in Rustans, however cant find time to go there.

ECLAT easily captured my taste. Its smell of sophistication is enchanting and undeniably irresistable.

Wanna try?

Certainly ... A Not So Good News

Apart from Jett's previous hospitalizations for the past three years of his life, last week Monday, is I think one of the lowest points of my Motherhood.

A small mass that we thought was only cause by a hard object plunked in between baby Jedd's eyebrows, was found out to be a cyst. Prior to that, a skull x-ray was performed, and nothing was found. Then his pediatrician referred us to a surgeon for a professional opinion why that lump has been there even before Jedd turned one month old.

The good news is, the cyst is benign or harmless and nothing to be alarmed of (wheh! Thank God, I was't myself 'till I heard this). The bad news is, since he is just a baby, and the fontanels are still open, a surgical removal cannot put through yet. So it will stay there for the meantime until his body is prepared enough for such.

Nevertheless, that fact still saddened me. Of course as a mother, you want your son to look normal. Admittingly, having a very visible, yet small mass in the face, is definitely not normal to see. People keep on asking, "What was that?". No matter how cute he is, they sometimes say "Awww... why the baby is angry?". Because the lump like I said, is situated in between the eyebrows, it gives an impression that he is like frowning. An offensive reaction is but natural for me, and it never fails to give me an "ouched" coz my son is a really happy baby.

What also scared me from the beginning is, you know, when you say surgery: blood, operation table, knife, recovery, confinement, blah blah blah. Until I found out through the internet, and hubby told me, that cyst is a common, out-patient, simple skin problem. Anybody could have it without any reasons, others even have plenty of it. You know, like warts (which I had mine removed on a facial center only). But just the same, it has to be excised or "cut-out" in order to take off the sac or what they call cyst wall, so it won't come back at all. (grrr.... it gives me goose bumps!)

Now, Jedd has a regular visit to his surgeon every three months to monitor if the mass is growing fast or otherwise. I just hope, everything would be okay, and the cyst will just disappear on its own and a surgical removal would no longer be necessary.

Come on! He's just a baby!!!

Rapid Changes

No, they are not two different babies. He is our latest bundle of joy, Renz Jarredh or Jedd. The first photo was taken when he was only 10 days old. The other picture was taken very recent right after he turned 2 months last July 13.

It never came to my senses that his physical attributes has changed a lot since the day he was born, until I saw and compared these two pictures. Everyday, Jedd never fails to amaze me with his transitions. From his sleeping patterns, squealing, the way he communicate with us, everything.

Time really flies sooooo very fast. The next thing I know, they are spreading their own wings, and never wanted to be held and kissed. Ouch! So, while they are still under my cocoon, I surely spend the most out of each day with them.
