40 and fabulous! My shirt speaks for itself =) (wink-wink)
within less than a month, i will turn 41 and needless to say my life is just starting over. for the past year of being forty i could say i’ve been “braver”. Braver in the sense that i have been more open to new challenges, positive or negative ones. it’s a good feeling: trying new things that i haven’t tried, doing this self portrait (and laughing at myself while doing it). who cares, i can’t pose and be daring like this 10 or 20 years from now. but, of course, i wish i still look like this when that time comes. ๐Ÿ˜€

i have no other thoughts for now…
just dare me! (wink wink)

March Ends

i have been busy lately and honestly i got hundred blog drafts to finish. From my kids’ blog to mine, i don’t know how i’m gonna do it, but sure i will. I owe it to myself and i need to trust my brain to recall things. I miss taking notes lately. Uffff…i will leave this month of March with too many things to write, and friends’ blog to read.

aside from errands, appointments and all, i’m busier with my family. my 2012 started with a more promising family bondings and activities. hub works so much, i work too, and with the growing kids, they need us more during weekends. we make sure Sunday should be for me and hub, and for kids, going somewhere. last year, most of the time, we just laze around the house during weekends, so i guess, we need to enjoy more of life going out, as long as the nice weather permits.

My April will be more fun-filled for sure!

Ooops, before he tells me “you forgot to mention me Mamma”…

Thanks to my 10-year old son, Jaki for capturing these fotos. (sweet)

She Makes Me Laugh, a Lot!

My girl (Zendra) is 3 years old and almost 2 months now.
And i tell you, she’s funny!
I can jot down hundreds of things, but let me share you a dozen for now.
1. Her A-B-C song can last for 5 minutes (or endlessly).
2. She’s “brave” enough to mess up with his older brother’s things. Everyday is an “out-of-this earth-funny-language” war-zone.
3. She still pronounce the “R” as “L”, and the “F” as “S”. “Flower” becomes “Srowel”.
4. She will definitely put away her underwear and put in her head to get your attention.
5. She loves clicking the camera by herself now, and each time she takes a picture, she pose too.
6. She always insist of putting her shoes by herself, expect the left shoe to be worn on her right foot.
7. She still refer to my dad (her grandpa) as “Nonno Apay”, means Grandpa Bread. When we were in the Philippines for vacation, my dad used to buy bread (tinapay, in filipino language) each morning.
8. She won’t stop asking you whom you are talking on the telephone. If you don’t tell a name, she will get the phone and ask the one on the line…“Chi’รจ?” (Who is this?)
9. She always sing “Old McDonald had a Farm” each time we wait for the bus for school.
“Ol Madonal had a salm…iii-yahhiii-yahhh yooo.”
10. She can’t live without her precious handkerchief. She calls it “Tissue”. When she wakes up at wee hours, first thing she looks and scream for…”tissssuuuueee!”
11. When we bid “goodnight” (buona notte) before going to bed, she will say “Buona Notte, Wapi (referring to her Papi), Kuya (referring to her older brother Jaki), Mamma,” and never forget to say last “Buona Notte Zendra!” (to herself)
12. When my phone rings and i’m in the bathroom or kitchen, she will get your fone and scream louder than the ambulance, “Mamma…..Lelesono..(Telefono)!”
