the cool change

Been waiting for this for some time. And it's' now coming to reality. In two months, a whole new world shall unfold for us, one that is quite different to where we are now. A life down under shall welcome us. Exciting. Scary. We don't know what to expect. Though sometimes we do. What's important is that we are going as a family. And that's all that matters.


trick or treat....

My son's 1st. Made sure he will be at my office's trick or treat this year. Even took a leave at work so that I can bring him. Took a bus going here. 1st time for the boy, errrr... his 1st time here in pinas. He enjoyed it (the dual bus ride from home to makati, then makati to office).
the pogiest cowboy ever...

2nd trick or treat... at his KM class. Repeat costume... Maximize... hehehe.

the cowboy & the indian girl (cutie Sophia)
He enjoys choosing pieces of treats scattered in a plate/container. Basta nakalatag. If the treat is given in a plastic, not much impact on him.


Last night, here's what I brought home to TJ.....

Filling overload! Oreo w/ 4 layers of the double stuff filling

Just like every kid (and adults alike) TJ is fond of oreo cookies. Uhmm... no, make that he is fond of the creme filling inside. With almost all sandwich cookies, he disintegrates the cookies and eats the sweet thing first. And most of the time he leaves the cookies behind. As in, he tosses them away and asks for another piece because the palaman (filling) is gone.

On the contrary, my officemate prefers the cookie only. She removes the creme and dunks it on milk before eating. When I saw her doing this yesterday, I said I'll just bring home the filling. She obliged and before eating the cookies, she removes the filling and piles them in another cookie base.

I gave it to TJ this morning for breakfast. I was unable to get a picture of him eating it because I was still busy packing my lunch. When I got the chance to take a shot of his oreo, here's what I got...

Cookie--> untouched. Filling --> 2 big bites on opposite sides. Need I say more? =P


Oktoberfest na!

I don't drink by the way... I never liked the taste and I rarely go on night outs, even when I was still single.

Where did the time go? We were just starting our 1st Kindermusik class 2 months back. And now, we're at the home stretch. Teacher Ana's announcing yesterday that the next semester is now open for early enrollees. And I go, HUH? My enrollment fee is now about to go into flames. Not intending to enroll on the next semester so far. Depends upon the circumstances. KM is good. My tot has improved from running around the dance studio (during the 45 min class) 90% of the time to just 40% of the time. And with him, that's a feat. He's now an expert in packing away, which he first learned by the way from his 1 month stint in Gymboree. And I think that's his favorite part. Even how busy he is doing something which is not the activity for the moment, when teacher says "___ away" (the first word usually is the thing teacher wants to be packed away), he'll go right away to me and get that object that he should return. He can be called the best packer! hehehe...

We're having a KM halloween party on Oct 31. Yey! Me excited. Need to prepare my kid's costume. It's just a recycled costume... His cowboy costume during his 1st bday. Commissioned his grandma (my mom) last night to adjust his cowboy vest so that it could fit his expanding body (due to milk overload which I wanted to stop coz it's draining our pockets). His cowboy hat is still good to go as during his 1st bday, it was so big for him. As for the polo, I have 1 short sleeved shirt and a long one. Will just choose what my mood dictates me on that day. So I guess we're all set and no need to buy a fancy halloween costume.

Hmm... I wonder if Gymboree Alabang will have a halloween party for existing members. We should also join.. Or maybe we should go trick or treating in GB5. I heard the treats given there are kinda sosyal. I read in one mommy blog last year that they got a Gymboree GC from one store. But I would have to take a leave if I do that, which is a problem. I barely have enough VL's left.

Then we have a culminating activity on Nov 7. Must not miss classes on those dates. Party time eh! But we're still attending 2 make up classes after that.

By the end of our classes, it's almost December. Oh my! Oh my! It's TJ's 3rd Christmas, which I think he'll enjoy more. Get's me more excited and wee bit sentimental. My boy's growing up so fast....


It's time for music...

While waiting for the class to start, TJ gamely poses for the camera.
