Miss Tala Elise reading her second story, the Gingerbread Boy.

Reading should be interesting and meaningful to the child so instead of teaching our little girl how to read through phonics, we're teaching her to read through Visualization/By sight, and by reading a beautiful story like this one. We are using the Treadwell Primer and she was truly captivated by the pictures and the classic stories.
.
She's improving daily and am constantly amazed how she's having more fun when we are reading a story, than using flashcards/worksheets.

"For a child there is no division between playing and learning: between the things he or she does 'just for fun' and things that are 'educational'. The child learns while living and any part of living that is enjoyable is also play" - Penelope Leach

"It's so very messy, I have to clean up" she says.
Life skills after messy play on a lazy Wednesday morning. We forego our morning time today so she can make this beautiful "fireworks" as describer by her.

A Christmas story
.
Tala: Mama, bakit puro Christmas lights ang dekorasyon natin?
Me: Kasi yan lang nabili natin sa Divisoria
Tala: Mama, bakit wala tayong Belen (Nativity set)
Me: uhm, nakalimutan natin bumili. Next year nalang tayo bili ha kasi mahirap nang bumalik sa Divisoria this December.
Tala: Mama, dapat meron tayong Belen para maalala natin si Jesus, si Mama Mary at Joseph. Para maalala natin ang birthday ni Jesus. (She's that wise)
Me: Bili tayo pag may mahanap tayo ha.
Tala: Okay. (So I prepared this activity today while we dont have Belen yet)

In this season, let's be reminded that it's not about merrymaking, parties, and exchanging gifts. It's all about Jesus and His sacrifice for His people. It's all about Christ spirit and emptying of Himself for us. I hope we remember that and we empty ourselves for others, too.

Our daughter finally agreed to have her hair cut today. She wants short hair na daw. Now she looks more like a kid than a little dalaga and we love it! 😍

I asked her last night if she wants to help prepare ingredients for our dinner and she gladly said yes. That sliced onions and ginger are her first work. Great work anak. 👍 .

Syempre parental supervision is advised.

A night of great conversation and meshing of high school friends, work-friends, neigborhood kids and families. Thank you Lord for our village and thank you guys for coming.

We spent the first half of Tala's 4th Birthday at Project Pearls daily soup kitchen at Helping Land, Tondo, Manila. We are humbled, overwhelmed and deeply touched with the hearts of these people and the selfless volunteers behind Project Pearls. ..

To be a star you must shine your own light, follow your own path and don't worry about the darkness. For in the darkest moments, your light will shine the brightest. .
Happy Birthday Miss Tala. Thank you for lighting up our lives beautifully for the past 4 years. Mahal na mahal ka namin.

P.S. Mama, has a long letter for you, read it when you can read novels na 😁😘
