Iya made this poster for her papa and daddy (she calls her grandpa, daddy)


She wrote all of them 🙂 I just dictated the letters. She also drew a picture of her with the two most important men in her life 😀 (the one wearing glasses is her daddy)

She also made a separate drawing of our family

p.s. the drawing on the 1st pic, below daddy’s name, is a plate (without color), cake (the red one) and candles accdg to her lol!

Happy Father’s Day to all dads out there especially my hubby and my dad!

During Sofia’s recent check up:

Pedia: I will just listen to your heart okay?

iya nods…

Pedia: Want to hear the sound of your heartbeat?

iya tries on the stethoscope…smiles…

Pedia: can you hear your heartbeat now? It says lub dub… (this is the medical term they use i think)

Iya: (protesting) NO!!!! my heart says dugdugdugdug! (as in hinukay! lol!)

My little girl’s 1st day in school :)

My h.s. friend Wen was right, i’d wake up early today 😀 5:38 am to be exact 😉 and that’s without any alarm! We were chatting a few weeks ago and I mentioned that I always wake up late. I get up no earlier than 9am. (blame it on pregnancy? lol!) And I was worrying I might not be able to wake up early enough when Iya starts school. But she told me not to worry ‘coz for sure the excited mommy in me will wake up early no matter what!

And so while my little girl was still in dreamland I prepared breakfast downstairs. Woke her up a little before 7am, (iya baby wake up now, you’re going to school today! “huh? now??”) She had rice, poached egg, corned beef and a glass of milk. And I sliced a whole apple for her snack in school.


We arrived at school about 10mins beore 8:30am. There was another boy who’s an early bird who happened to be his classmate. So the two sort of bonded first 🙂 It was close to 9am already and I thought it was just going to be the two of them! But teacher Haizel told me there were 9 students in Kinder1 morning class. And they did appear albeit late :p


So they started off by tracing their name on a sheet of paper. I entered the room not aware that they were writing their name. I just wanted to tell the teacher that we use Iya’s 2nd name Sofia more often than Frances. And she suddenly said “ay kaya pala!” turned out while giving the paper, teacher Haizel told iya “okay now, it’s time to trace your name frances” to w/c my daughter replied “but I am sofia” nyahaha… She does know to give her full name when asked what her name is. But she’s used to being addressed as Sofia or Iya. Teacher also said Iya has a classmate who’s 1st name is Zsofia.
So now we have to call her Frances more often so that there wouldn’t be any confusion in class.


They sang a few songs and after that I got tired of standing outside the small window by the door to watch her..hehe They also had a 15 minute play time. And after 2hours it was goodbye teacher. (they will have their regular 3hour class starting next week.) The students also received their 3 books (science, math, writing/phonics) and 3 notebooks (one of which was already covered in plastic with their name on it! hmm… i wonder why they didn’t cover the other 2 lol!)


We went to SM North, had a hearty lunch. And since Iya got her books already, I bought her a backpack. Ofcourse it had to be a minnie mouse too! It was on sale also so yipee! I bought her additional socks and panties (kids can’t have enough of those anyway ;))


So that’s how her 1st day went. Hoping the rest of her school days will be as exciting for her 🙂

How tall are you?

We were just chilling in the room with my mom when the ff conversation happened:

Sofia: Mama, can you check how tall am I? (stands on the bed)

Moi: Wow, you’re taller now! See, if you sleep a lot and eat a lot you’ll get taller!

Sofia: Mama, what number? (she wanted me to tell her exactly how tall she is)

Moi: (guessing) Hmm.. you are three feet tall!


she sits on the bed and proceeds to count…

Sofia: But mama look, I only have 2!

lol!!! 😀 I didn’t get it at first and my mom was already laughing hysterically and iya had to repeat that she only had 2 feet and not 3! 😀
