MM: Nutrition Tips

Posted by Cecile at Friday, August 26, 2011 3 comments
Health is one of the most important thing I instill in my son's mind. Eating a healthy balanced diet is part of his every meal. But what is a healthy balanced-diet composed of? To me, it is a meal consists of starches, vegetables and meat (white and red). In my house we are used to eating meals with the three major food groups. Fruits serve as desserts. I am glad that at Jacob's young age, he loves to eat veggies, fish, and salads. We also thought him that whatever is on the table, that he will special meal prepared for him. The only tip I can share with you guys is this: as soon as you baby is ready to eat solid foods....try to give then puree' fruits and veggies. If you do will never have problem feeding them fruits and veggies. As we all know, most of the kids these days don't eat veggies and if they do...they only eat the ones they want to. I also believe in the saying that "you are what you eat." Parents should start teaching their kids the importance of being healthy...and that begins at home where their first teachers are their Mom and Dad. It works for me.

Jacob's First Day of School

Posted by Cecile at Monday, August 22, 2011 0 comments
Today was my son's first day of school. He is a 2nd grader now; how time flies. I miss my baby so much. He is growing like a seed and before I know it he would be leaving us for college :-(. Anyway, he was very excited on going back to school. He woke up early and prepared himself well. He was even looking for food to eat for his breakfast when hubby and I woke up! I still couldn't believe how excited he was! It was like the opposite of his feelings last year. When he got home from school this afternoon, he told us how much fun he had meeting his new classmates and teacher. I am so proud of my son. O i love you, Anak for making us proud parents!

At home before leaving for school. See what I mean?

Mommy Moments: Filipino Ako

Posted by Cecile at Saturday, August 20, 2011 4 comments
The theme for this week on Mommy Moments is " Filipino Ako." Since my son was born here in United States and his Dad is a Caucasian, he doesn't have any picture wearing Filipino costume neither participated on Filipino week activity at school. But not having experienced those things, doesn't mean he can't be called a Filipino. He has a Filipino blood running in his veins and had come to love Filipino foods and little bit of mannerism like trying to eat using his own hands and sitting with one of his feet on the chair (just like some Filipino do particularly the seniors who lives in a province), lol. Yes, I do eat using my hands every once in awhile, but the thing about the foot...that I don't do and I think he got it from my Mom :-). He can say some Tagalog words like: kili-kili (underarm), ilong (nose), mata (eyes) and many more which is kind of funny to hear and makes me laugh. So, my son is a Filipino :-).

Will Always Be Here For Our Son

Posted by Cecile at Monday, August 01, 2011 1 comments
I remember asking my son what he wanted to be when he grows up, he said that he wants to be a policeman. I am happy and amazed at the fact that he already knows what he wants to be in the future. In his very young mind, he knows that a policeman’s job is to protect and serve the people, guard them from those with bad intentions. To be a policeman is his dream and as a way to achieving his dream and making it into reality, Jake became so interested in taekwondo. So we thought of getting him into taekwondo lessons. He knows that the policemen had to protect themselves too all the time so they won’t get hurt. Learning taekwondo as a means of self-defense really taught him a lot and had enlightened my son to the realities of the harsh world, outside his little world.
As his parents, we are here to guide him and support him all the way. Achieving his little and yet big dreams will never be materialized if he will do it alone, without any moral support from us, without our love and God’s teachings to guide his way through success. In the coming years his desire to be a policeman might and will change but we know that whatever he may choose to be, we will always be here for him.
