friday fill-ins


i’ve lost count of all the friday fill-ins i made, surely there weren’t that many yet. but here is my take for this week’s edition (note: am skipping the christmas songs acronym, i’m going loco trying to figure out the puzzle you see^^)
here goes:
1. What in the world can we do to make this place a better and saner place for our children.
2. my little bundle of joy will be less cranky and more of an angel if well fed.

3. Go dream and reach for the stars.

4. yesterday i sent the christmas card i bought for my good friend, beejay, which i managed to write on in between diaper change and bottlefeeding my ever growing baby boy.

5. I keep one of my favorite traditions, that is letter-writing, alive, at least once or twice a year.

6. i may risk the trouble of going citybound tomorrow to bring jared to the cpkids christmas party or not.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to just turning in early to cuddle with my son, tomorrow my plans include scouring the mall to look for jared’s pants or shorts or finally use my big & small co. gc’s and Sunday, I want to go to de casia memorial park, it has been ages since i went to visit my parents!

1. How do you order your steak?
2. Are you superstitious about anything?
3. Who is your best friend (not including your spouse)?
4. When is the last time your wore a dress (for the guys…a suit)?
5. Do you have any trips scheduled?

my answer:
1. well done! it must always be well done! but i really seldom order steaks. not really one of my faves.

2. superstitious? probably in just teeny-weeny ways like i must always start my monday right otherwise the rest of the week will be ruined! or i always greet a friend at exactly midnight of their birthday for good luck. i also knock on wood, cross my fingers and say “bless you” whenever i hear someone sneeze.
3. my best friend? wow, i have one too many fabulous friends but i’m not sure who falls under the best category though, lest i might mention someone and another one might get jealous. chris immediately pops into my mind because she is such a great friend, a ninang (godmother to you my non-filipino readers) to my son and we’ve just recently watched the harry potter movie together.

this is one of my older photos with chris
4. the last time i wore a dress was when i was still pregnant with my baby. so that’s about a year,  three months and 15 days (yep, i’ve been counting!) ago. i am not really your dress girl cause my not-so-girly ways can really get in the way of the frills, i have dress mood swings though but comes very, very seldom. i normally dress in jeans, and of late, tights and shorts.
5. we will be heading southbound come christmas day. we will be celebrating at the enchanted kingdom (a theme park) in laguna with my son, my siblings and my fave cousin, dennis. i plan to take loads of photos and ride as many park rides as possible or at least the ones that will allow my 15 month old to ride safely. we will also watch fireworks display at night. this will be the first time in a long time that the family will be taking a trip like this so everyone is overly excited. i am ticking off my list of things to bring to enchanted kingdom while i write this.

mommy moments: last christmas

mum and baby wearing red beside our old christmas tree
christmas morn opening present from mum and dad

i never enjoyed my first noche buena with my son last year, in fact i was not even home when this happened. i had to go to work (darn! yes, i used to belong to the call center industry where most holidays go by with you stuck up on your desk taking calls, half-wanting to cry and half-wanting to go home to your baby!) you see and i never went home until it was 2am i think, so i’ve totally missed it out. but made up for it the next day (i was on leave, thank goodness!) and spent the entire day with my son…

this was the first time we brought jared to the mall, he was only barely four months around that time.  and i remember him instantly delighted at the twinkle twinkle of the christmas lights adorning the mall’s facade. 

picture, picture while waiting for everybody to get ready!
white christmas: beside the dept store christmas tree

a photo op with the red christmas tree this time just before the mall closes whilst jared was busy staring at the late shoppers milling around….

all in all it was a fun and memorable time all together. i bought jared some nice stuffs including his soft soccer ball (yep, cause i want to be a soccer mum when he grows up!). we took turns carrying him around (he was i think about 8 kilos at that time and carrying him around all day while walking around the mall is quite a daunting task).  this year we plan to go to enchanted kingdom and take loads of pictures (finally i was able to convince cel to hoard and take pictures, but i need to have some more luck in bel and ken’s cases!) and i am very much excited. i plan to ride every little one which will allow jared on them…
