Pretty

I’m having a sick day off, and since my daughter’s classes has yet to start in a coupla weeks, I got to spend the whole day with her. Simple things, like preparing her lunch and milk, drawing with her.. non-strenuous stuff like that.

So she takes a bath, but before that, she put out clothes to wear after. We had a mild disagreement. After one too many episodes of DC Super Hero Girls, she had this idea that she’s a Tiger Warrior. And Tiger Warriors apparently wore outfits like this:

Francine’s First Run: Summer Color Fun Run 2016

By on April 29, 2016

I started joining fun runs at the ripe age of 29 and my first event was a mere 3k non-competitive run. And here is my daughter, all of 4 years and 8 months, already finished with her first fun run last Saturday–and a 5k run at that. And the icing on cake would have to be her being awarded as the event’s Youngest Runner! #proudMommy moment right there. 😀

I’d like to believe that by starting her young on sports, she’d grow up better, a more well-rounded person. After all, sports do not enhance only the physical, but the mental and emotional as well. And hopefully, instill in her some much-needed discipline as well.

Until Next Time

By on February 19, 2016

…and his plane just took off, after half an hour delay. And it will be years again before we get together. And I already miss him. :'(

So thankful though for the four precious weeks we were together. He really made the time for me; we were together practically everyday after work. We spent most of the time eating, then just hanging out, walking around, laughing, and generally just enjoying each other’s company.

We became the quintessential good cop-bad cop parental tandem to Francine. And of course, he’s the good cop because he carried and goofed around with her, bought her the toys and Kinder Joy I wouldn’t buy for her. He was the enabler; I was the disciplinarian. Guess which one the kid would pick, hmm? But, I really don’t mind. At the end of the day, we’re still a unit, our family intact and glued together by love and laughter (and the occassional farting contests).

So it’ll be back to Hangouts again instead of text messages, choppy videos instead of local calls. But we’ll manage. We always do. Because it’s us and that’s that.

I love you so much daddyyah. 😘
