Another marshmallow test for our 3 year old, the first time was when she's still 2.
.
I gave her 2 marshmallows and if she waited for 3 minutes, then I'll give her 3 more. Did she pass the self-control test? Yes, she did happily at the end of the short clip. 🤗
.
When she's 4, we'll have to make her wait longer. .

Prepping for last night's dinner, sinigang, she volunteered to help cut the sitaw/string beans. Some of the sitaw she cut were too small so I told her "Baby, wag masyadong maliit, dapat mga 2 inches ang cut mo"  and I showed her. .

To which she replied with so much wisdom, "It's okay mama. Magkakaiba naman tayo, so iba iba rin ang pag-cut natin ng sitaw." I was taken aback and just said, "Okay, tuloy mo na lang garud."
.
She remembered our discussion where each of us are different individuals, we have different methods and styles of doing and learning things. And that is so true, she wants to cut the sitaw small, so be it. There's nothing wrong with having short string beans in sinigang.😉 To each his own, ika nga.

#remindertoself , remember to keep my mouth shut when she's engrossed in her work. .

Psalm 23 by Miss #talaelise. It's amazing how quickly she soaked it up and how she loves reciting it in our home now.  The passages were read to her in small sections day by day until she's confident enough to recite it. She has totally exceeded my expectations as she'd memorized it in less than a month. Of course, we explained to her the meaning of this beautiful Psalm, too. . . .

Little girl wants to read all the Little Critter books she have today, just because she wants to. It's a rainy cuddle-on-the-couch kind of day today with @miss_talaelise .

Oh to be surrounded by thousands of local sardines, that is just an extraordinary feeling.

Learning materials doesn't have to be so complicated and expensive.
Sorting by colors using these cheap rubber bands/lastiko from the market.😉

These two kiddos are one year apart, see each other once or twice a year but when they are  together, they are inseparable. Both homeschooled and both breastfed, they will conquer the world together in the future. Go Ninja Warriors! 😘
.
You are both amazing kids Tala and Priya. .

Watch that glow and excitement in her eyes. Isn't she having the time of her life. 😍

"It's not only children who grow, parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself. " - Joyce Maynard

This morning, I watched the tangerine sunrise from our apartment and it was beautiful. I remember you and your beautiful soul, Mama. Tala and I talked about you, too, this morning and we said a prayer for you. Happy birthday Mama. You will always be in our hearts.💞

Foggy morning with my loves, @talizsai and @miss_talaelise on our first camping trip in Batangas - something I will probably remember in a long time.
