Mommy Moments - Rainbow Colors

"Red and yellow and pink and green,
Purple and orange and blue,
I can sing a rainbow,
sing a rainbow,
sing a rainbow too!"

For Mommy Moments, the colors of the rainbow are not limited to seven. All colors from the Crayola box are welcome.

This was one of the desserts table at The Cafe Jeepney at Hotel Intercon.
This was taken by my good friend Ieni when we had our dinner buffet there recently.

The cheerful Mean Girls. You'll never know how mean we truly are. LOL
Vayie took the pic and Tin was MIA.

And this is probably the most colorful of them all.

While this week's topic is marked by cheerfulness or good spirits, let us not forget that today is also Good Friday. Let me share with you a prayer I saw on the web.

Good Friday Prayer

"O Jesus, Who by reason of Thy burning love for us
hast willed to be crucified
and to shed Thy Most Precious Blood
for the redemption and salvation of our souls,
look down upon us here gathered together
in remembrance of Thy most sorrowful Passion and Death,
fully trusting in Thy mercy;
cleanse us from sin by Thy grace,
sanctify our toil,
give unto us and unto all those who are dear to us our
daily bread,
sweeten our sufferings,
bless our families,
and to the nations so sorely afflicted,
grant Thy peace,
which is the only true peace,
so that by obeying Thy commandments
we may come at last to the glory of heaven.

Mommy Moments - Birthday Photo

Aside from Christmastime, birthdays are my favorite occasions. I'm a walking birthday calendar. I seldom forget birthdays. Even my favorite and oldest stuff toy has a birthday. LOL

For this week, I'm sharing my darling babies' most recent birthdays.

Milo's 2nd 4.27 was humbly celebrated at home with family and friends.

Pretzel's 1st 12.20 was celebrated more extravagantly at Jollibee where the adults enjoyed the party more than the kids.

And as for me, my 32nd birthday was celebrated 2 or 3 days early. It was spent Trick or Treating with the kids and the rest of the family at Trinoma. We just had lunch at Super Bowl of China after collecting tons of treats and had dessert at UCC afterwards.

My 32nd 11.3. Fun!

Aren't birthdays fun whether you're the celebrator or the financier? LOL

Mommy Moments - Summer Plans

It looks like my first entry for every Mommy Moments every month is always a day or two late. My bad! I will try to post on time next month.

For this month, the categories/topics are:

April 8 - Summer Plans
April 15 - Birthday Photo
April 22 - Rainbow Colors
April 29 - Black and White

Here is my share for the week.

With the sunshiny Metro Manila weather since January, the kids' summer officially started when we brought them to the zoo in February. It was their first time. I had more fun than they did. LOL We are planning to bring them to Zoobic Safari before the summer ends.

A few weeks later, we decided to get them an inflatable pool to keep them occupied and prepare them for or upcoming getaway for Milo's 3rd birthday in April. We are planning to go to Amana Waterpark in Bulacan or rent a private pool in Laguna. For the meantime, we let 'em splash in their inflatable pool.

We went to Tagaytay last December to attend a wedding and we plan to take the kids there again.

According to PAGASA, summer has not officially started, but with my kids, as long as the sun is shining, summer has begun.

PS We also plan to have our family portrait taken this summer. :)

Death of Common Sense

Reposting from a friend's Note in Facebook.

(Image courtesy of

"An Obituary printed in the London Times - Interesting and true.

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;

- Why the early bird gets the worm;

- Life isn't always fair;

- and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;

I Know My Rights

I Want It Now

Someone Else Is To Blame

I'm A Victim

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing."
