Saying No

Yona's showing a strong desire for independence by saying "No!" to everything. This can be very, very irritating especially when with a lot of people and she shows them her annoying behaviour, aaaahhhh, nakakainis talaga because she's not like that at home.

She does this if she's with people she seldom see. From a bubbly tot she suddenly becomes shy and clingy - the "stay with me here mommy" type.

She says no to everything she's asked to do, so this morning we had this conversation:

Mommy: Parati ka na lang "No!" I will impose a "No saying of No!" rule here at HOME.
Yona: here? at home?
Mommy: Yes
Yona: WHERE can I shout the "No!"?

Yona's Blades of Glory Addiction

Yona's so into figure skating these days, she has not tried doing it though but she watches every movie with figure skating that I downloaded: Ice Princess, Cutting Edge, etc but one particular movie really got her interest, Blades of Glory. She watches it twice a day and in two weeks she already know the lines in the movie. The movie is really not for kids as it has foul words and sexy content so what I do is watch with her and skip these parts. She sings "I don't want to miss a thing" and "lady humps" pa nga!
Then this afternoon, she was humming "I don't want to miss a thing" again. So we joined with her completely finishing her lines when all of the sudden she shouted:

"Mommy, Katie is not whore!"

Marcelle and I were so shocked! Dada recovered from the shock first and asked "What's that again, sweetie?" then she said "Chazz Michael Michaels said Katie is not a whore!"

She got this line from the movie itself.

m.y. G.o.d.

I didn't know how to react. I thought na edit ko na lahat.

but when she was asked what that line is, she shrugged and said "I don't know..."

Extracurricular Activity: Music & Movement Playdate

January 31, 2009
Kidsahoy Playshop
Quezon City

It was a very fun experience for my little Toepei as she got to spend 2 hours with her friends, old and new ;-) Of course there's Caine and Jea as always, her buddies in most of her Kidsahoy Activities. It was the first time that she attended Teacher Thea's class so she was hesitant at first but joined in eventually.Yona in pink leggings with Caine, wearing a chinese attire

There were lot of activities like instruments playing, a little story telling, puppet demo, etc. It was really a fun filled day and Yona's looking forward to her next playdate - which is tomorrow!Yona in Kidsahoy's Troll Bridge with Caine Sy and Nathalie Gener
