Paper Plate Hearts Craft

Easy Paper Plate Hearts

Too early for Valentines? Maybe. Too early to make something special? No. LittleMiss’: “Mama, where my boy’s?” She specifically calls her big brother “boy or boys.” As soon as she see’s Kuya V’s school bus she would declare “My boy’s is here! Hey, boys look my toy.” We made this paper plate  heart’s for our boy’s.

Our afternoon walk and things we discovered

Lately, LittleMiss is not very fond of her stroller – “No! Walk march me, Mom.” When her path is clear, she let’s go of my hand and walk by herself. Kuya V’s first time to cross the road alone. LittleMiss was yelling at her “No. Stop. Look, left and right.” I felt a sense of pride and sadness, the realization that he’s a big boy now. “See, Mom! I did it! Checked for cars and cross street. Kalas! ” Soon, he’ll ask that I no longer walk with him.

A trip to The Mind Museum

We visited The Mind Museum during our 2013 Philippines vacation. Tadaah! V remembered our trip to the museum and asked if we have a similar one here in Dubai (still looking). The Mind Museum is located at Taguig City, it is an interactive Science museum that encourages visitors to touch and experience featured exhibits in their five galleries: Life, Atom, Earth, Universe and Technology.  Here’s a glimpse of what we saw inside: Aedi, the robot – welcomed all guest’s and talked about the exhibits we’ll get to see inside the museum.

Traveling with Tots: Activity Kits

  Many of you are probably travelling somewhere this month. We are leaving in a few days, just the kids and I in an 8 hour flight to Hong Kong then another 2 hours to Manila. LittleMan V is 6  and LittleMiss Chloe 2 years old. I don’t remember what state of mind I was when I agreed to travel alone with two kids. We are pretty lucky as far as travelling with LittleMan V, he’s happy with food and movie. It is a different case with the LittleMiss who is happiest when she’s playing with some toys/stuff: last year she gathered all the magazines and placed them on the bassinet then out then back again. Goodluck to me. I gathered some toys we already have around the house to help me keep kids busy for our trip.   Assorted Activity Cards consists of numbers & alphabets, maze, find the difference and color cards. Stickers and colored pens will keep them happy.  Item bought at Brands for Less.   Memory Game. LittleMiss still can’t understand the concept …

DIY Father’s Day Fossil Handprint

  Mr. C got his Father’s day present from us last weekend, he bought a shirt and I paid for it. Boring! He was really happy about it though. We were in bed with both kids sleeping when he suddenly blurted out how fast the kids are growing – LittleMiss will turn 2 yrs and LittleMan 7 yr old this year. Making a handprint of the kids to remind him (us) that they will always be our babies is a perfect gift. It is something that everyone in the family can do, even kids as young as 2 years old.

LittleOnes Library: Reading time

iPad is strictly off limits during school days. Kuya Vierte complained that there was nothing for him to do, LittleMiss was sleeping and I was busy cleaning up – I have no one to play with, he said. I told him to read me a story a loud, he once again complained that we already know all the stories and all of our books are for babies. I reminded him that we did have books for 6yo kids – some from Dr. Seuss and Encyclopedia for kids. With a sad face he stomped and browsed our book shelf. Finally, he chose “Time for Kids: Almanac 2014” and minutes later – silence – he was enjoying. I promised him that Mommy will stop work and take time to sit down and read with them.
