Yona's Computer Lessons Jokes ;-)

I now allow her to play games on the PC and browse other kid-friendly sites. So far so good - she's doing well especially on the mouse and keyboard orientation. It just surprised me how she used the new words she's learned, nakakaloka!

On Backspace
One of her favorite pastimes is writing on our cemented floor using her colored chalk. One time as she was doodling something and didn't like what she saw she just shouted "Backspace! Backspace!" as she was erasing her scribbles.

Hang or Just Isn't Loading?
She was playing Barbie Dress Up when the PC started to act up, she said "Mommy, I can't see the arrow!", "Wait lang, I'll fix it" I said. As I was fixing it, nanggulo na naman "I want to play magnets na" so I said, "Wait, naka hang nga eh" She blurted "Hang or it's just not loading?!?

Oh, kids talaga!

The Best Christmas Party Ever

To date we've been through a lot of Christmas parties already but the one we attended today was the best because it was different and it was celebrated with the people my daughter loves the most (aside from us of course!) - her Kidsahoy family.

Like most Christmas parties there were gifts, Christmas songs and program of course but all were for the kids of FCED (Families & Children for Empowerment and Development). The program showcased talents of Kidsahoy - Kuya CJ played the guitar, Kuya Alon read a story for all of us, Ate Justine sang a very beautiful song which got me teary eyed, Kuya Enoch sang a song from High School Musical and the toddlers sang I wav to move it! move it!. Aside from that, 5 homeschooling kids (I forgot their names except Nicolle and Popet) performed a song and dance number and kiddos from FCED joined the fun too!

My little Yona did nothing - except to have fun! She didn't perform on stage but she made a lot of people happy kasi she wasn't in her usual grumpy self. She hugged everyone who greeted her "good morning Yona!" the moment she arrived and was lively all throughout - first in, last out kami no?!?. She had "dede" moments to refuel which was understandable because she consumed a lot of energy by jumping, running, drawing and jumping again! She gained new friends - Masheng and Jea and got reunited with BFFs Kylie and Caine. Got to meet Mommy Michelle and Mommy Leng too!

It was indeed a very memorable Christmas party for my little girl because she experienced the magic of giving and helped fellow kids make other children happy in their own little way.

Thank you Kidsahoy - especially Mommy J and Teacher A for giving us the chance to share. That amidst the financial challenges Marcelle and I are facing you made us realize that we can still make a difference. Thank you again and more power to Kidsahoy!

Learning Alphabet

The little girl is fascinated with letters more than ever. She's mastering her alphabet and is taking it all with ease. The letters she did not recognized a few days ago? - they're currently her favorites now.

Annoyingly, she'll bore you to death by reading all the letters she encounter everyday. But of course, I don't give her that glum face - that would too much for her. She'll appreciate cooperation from us now. Don't get her mommy wrong - I am too excited that It scares me. Just thinking I am enrolling her in the first grade with all the information she's grasping from our studies is giving me the creeps.

She would make and read letters from popsicle sticks:

And would oftentimes read all the letters she see in shirts!

And she would make letters from leaves, its something, huh?
