EVERYDAY ALPHABET

EVERDAY ALPHABET

Next year I will be enrolling my 2 year old son, Juan, in pre-school that’s why everyday I make it a point to sing at least two alphabet songs, for him to familiarize with it.

Here’s Juan’s rendition of the Alphabet Song:

A, B, C, D, F, I, G,H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, everyday, W, X, Y, & Z.

It’s amazing how this song uplift my mood whenever Juan sings it. How about your children’s alphabet song?

OF LITTLE CHILDREN…

My nephews and nieces stayed in our place for over a week. Aside from my 3 kids, it’s fun having kids around…children are the most wonderful creation of God…when my husband and I spend time with them it’s as if life is so full…full of laughter…full of joy…full of life. Kids are transparent, they say it when they are hungry, sleepy or tired so it is very easy to have them around.

We brought all of them, 8 kids, ages 2 – 11, in different places. My husband made a game out of animal alphabet. This is a fun way to ease boredom during long trips. Here are some funny answers we got from them:

A – Antenna
C – Cebra
E – Egg
H – Hamper
I – Igloo
M – Mommy (from my 2 year old son, Juan)
N – Nemo

HOOK Movie (1991)

This is a movie worth watching for parents like me. Sometimes we get so busy dealing with a lot of things, responsibilities and relationship that we often forget the little things that matters most to our children, our time and attention. Remember this: Your kids will remember times spent with you no matter what activities you do together.

Plot Outline/Synopsis:

When Capt. Hook kidnaps his children, an adult Peter Pan must return to Neverland and reclaim his youthful spirit in order to challenge his old enemy. Peter Pan is now an adult and a parent. He is a successful lawyer who has virtually ignored his children and his wife because of his heavy workload and his constantly ringing cell phone. Peter never makes it to his son's baseball games, and is seemingly attached to his cell phone. They all go on a Christmas trip to see Granny Wendy while Peter makes some attempt to reconnect to his family. Before you know it, Captain Hook has kidnapped Peter's kids to Never-Never Land while the pint-sized Tinker Bell wakes Peter up since he is unaware of his past exploits to save his kids.
