I have such a stressful Tuesday. The storm hit the metro and the wind almost blew off our roof in the laundry area. I was constantly monitoring it and the sound that it makes really is terrible, that my daughter was so scared. I kept on praying that if ever our roof went off that no one will be hit. It wouldn’t cause any damage to any human or the wires. Thankfully, as the wind and rain stopped our roof had survived. But the next day, I already contacted the repair man and our roof is okay already. Thank God!
I already stopped scouting for schools for my daughter since I already knew that the one she is enrolled right now will be offering Grade school levels in the next school year. Yes, it’s like finding the best rv towing after searching endlessly. So now I can put my fear aside as to my daughter’s adjustment to big school. You see at 5, she still cannot speak Filipino nor understand the language. Some parents tell me that it’s okay because eventually she will learn. I do hope so. Well, for now my focus is on making sure that there won’t be untoward incident regarding my healthy and also I have to start cleaning up for Christmas.
I have been looking forward to have a body massage and a body scrub. But unfortunately, I don’t have time. So yesterday I just decided to have myself pamper even just a little part of my body. I got foot scrub, foot massage, wax paraffin and even manicure. I was a bit shock when my foot were dipped in hot water for the wax. It was my first time to do that kind of treatment and man, I was tortured. hahah. The lady was asking me if I want one for my hands but I said no thanks. I still feel the need for body treatments. I wish I can find a nearby spa that opens early.
The husband was laughing at me when I told him that some of our appliances and gadgets are not working. There are toys of the little girl which I thought needed only aa rechargeable batteries but when I tried using new recharged ones they still won’t turn on. Seems like they are defective. Then I haven’t bought a new tv yet. My netbook has a malfunctioning keyboard, my laptop does not want to continue to windows and our rice cooker’s lights are also not working well. I am starting to think that most of our appliances and gadgets have now reach their time for repair or replacement. That means I have to allot budgets. Oh well, that’s life. We cannot depend on these machines to be of service forever.
Next year, at the age of five and 11 months, my daughter would be entering Grade 1. Right now, I am a bit hesitant on which school I should enroll her. I started scouting last month and I was able to call two Catholic school. They say they would give my daughter a chance on entering grade 1 if she passes their exam. But I still have doubts because they are big school and I know she will meet different kids there from different background. And I am worried that she might get bullied because she does not speak Filipino and clingy. So, I was happy when the owner of the montessori said that next year they would have Grade 1 already. Yes! I know I should start letting my daughter interact with the outside world but I am not yet ready. Maybe little by little. I would be confident to let her out if she can understand our native language.
It’s 100 days before Christmas and my daughter seeing the Christmas trees that are for sale in the mall have been asking me to put up the Christmas decors in our house. I know it’s too soon but hey last year we weren’t able to adorned our house. Of course we won’t be having some Pop up display but I plan to put all the lights and decors to feel the Christmas spirit at an early date. So Merry Christmas everybody.
I already to the school head about our plans of leaving the country for three months starting November and will be back by February. We were all hesitant about the move even if the school has a modular approach. It means we can bring the lessons in Kuwait and do it there. But our daughter would miss a lot of things in terms of interaction. So, the husband and I are talking about it. Either he goes home for Christmas vacation or we go there during Christmas break and would only stay for one month. Tough! Not to mention expensive. haha.
Do you know that grandparents day is september 11th? Well, I just have known it recently because I saw an article about it. Now, what should we give them? I think aside from the gift, it would be nice to give our attention to them. Because sometimes during our busy days we tend to forget about them and we sometimes get irritated when they try to talk to us. It’s not really hard to give them a gift if we know they interest by heart. Remember, they are the ones who have taken care of our parents and until now are trying to take care of us. They are an integral part of our life and so try to value them while they are with you.
If it’s not far I would definitely enroll my daughter in Assumption Antipolo. Unfortunately, during the rainy days also their is a place that we have to passed coming from the said school that is always flooded. So we decided it’s not for our little girl as well as the school in Katipunan. Our criteria for the school is that it should be Catholic and if possible has only few student per class. Yesterday, I was able to call two catholic school that are just ten to 15 minutes away from our house. They told we they will give our daughter a chance to have an exam for Grade 1 even if she is underage. I do hope she’ll be away to pass the exam.
