My Back Up

My eldest daughter is very much into jogging, we agreed to jog today but when I woke her up, Faith woke up too and told her to stay because she have no one to cling to on the bed. So I went out alone and besides we will have our annual checkup that I need to go after I jog so I am sure that Mj will get bored only to find out I still need her to go to the office because I forgot my ID. Good thing, I left some money at home, supposedly for sister Merlyn and an E-Load and she can give me the rest however it turns out to be her fare since she needs to go to the office in a taxi because if not, I may not going to finish the check up right away. I don’t want to go back there, going to every room for some check up. Mj is indeed my savior in times I need a back up.

Her Electronic Music Endeavors

As I have mentioned in previous posts, my youngest daughter has started to learn to play the piano. To help her in her studies, we bought her an electronic keyboard. As she progresses we may add things to help her enhance her electronic music endeavors. We were thinking of getting her something like the akai apc40 Ableton Performance Controller which we can get from Musicians Friend. We are very happy with her progress so far and were proud of her when she did her best during her first recital. We are looking forward to see her continued progress and will do whatever it takes to give her the tools to improve.

Dream Big But No Pressure

It’s not that I am losing hope; I mean I know my youngest daughter is full of surprises good or bad, bad or good. But honestly, I didn’t know she will receive an academic award during her Moving Up day. I asked my 2 sisters to accompany Faith at the venue since I could not attend the ceremony and when I got there, I was surprised when I found she had a silver award. I congratulate her right away when she saw me in the back. But she was too busy to respond, she said she needs to get the portfolio from her teacher and the school newspaper.

I know Faith can surpass my expectation, it is just that I don’t expect too much it is because I want her to enjoy her school without feeling any pressure. But she did it, she just did it! And too bad I wasn’t there to put the medal on her, work sometimes sucks especially during this very important event but I know I can’t stop I need to work hard for them, for my family.

Faith is grinning so wide while eating her lunch, she felt so proud that she was able to make it although she said she wanted to get the topnotch, I answered “As long as you enjoy what you are doing, dream big”. Although I wish of her to get to the top but I don’t pressure her because I know and I am sure that instead of her being inspired she might end up affecting her negatively.

So we are taking it slowly but surely. As long as we were able to study in Filipino and Sibika, everything will turn out fair.

Where is the Love?

My kids had their recital on March 3 last month, I really asked my boss to allow me to take a half day absent because I need to attend and will watch their show. Good thing, they approved it, even though it was already the last minute that I informed them about the event.

I think I already posted here their recital but not this video that I will be posting a little bit later. I loved to dance and when I was still young, I used to dance; I even joined dance performance during our scholar’s sports fest in college. And I am proud to say that I and my team dance hip hop so well (grinning)  and maybe Mj took that talent from me because she danced so well too. She looks conscious with the stepping but she conquered it until the very last minute.

I was a proud Mom when I watched her and I can’t help to scream and cheer for her. Yeah, it sounded like she is in a competition, striving so hard to win, I feel like it.

On the other hand, I was able to take a video of her and her school mates dancing their heart out in NCCC Mall. They look so cool and I was teary eyed!
