Socializing Babies



It's been a while since I last entered anything here. There is so much thing to do and finish and start again.
Time flies by so quickly and then I see Kiara as not so small and not a baby anymore.
There was a time when she wouldn't smile or laugh, and I thought of socializing her by enrolling her to Gymboree
or even mainstream her to all the kids in the neighborhood.

But now she's changed, she can laugh and make fun and say a lot of things.
I guess it is just a phase or a stage in babyhood that I can't accelerate or push her to do the things her parents want her to do.
Now she is displaying the behavior I dreamt of like singing, dancing and counting..
nature has its way of surprising you right?

Every Filipino should know what happen to Balangiga even if you are not from this place.

Book Smart is Not Enough



This is a funny and informative video for graduating students that it is not always the grade that counts , or who you know but how you deal with problems, carry yourself and communicate.

I like the part where the nose is bleeding. It looks gross though.

Mossimo Casting Call 2010






Out of 2, 263 kids there are a total of 1,799 kids selected and only 20 will be declared winner.I got his information from myfameandfortune link to se click here frensz.com site.

I received an email last June 24 informing me that Kiara was selected, though i do not know the criteria, I was excited.. I know Kiara is cute,, just like what every mother feel. i was excited on that day, i even want to have a pedicure for myself and had the gap clothes cleaned in the laundry shop and even had it pressed.

I even loaded the car with a thousand peso gas and paid the toll fee and then had to dine at Don Henrico for the Casting Call at Festival Mall. In short, I spend a lot for this and was a little disappointed when I see the crowd of babies and kids.

You know, it's like Kiara was special or so I thought then I learned of this statistics and I was correct at my hunch that they tried to include almost everybody. Make everybody feel special to even go to a a very far place, it will totally help the Festival Mall and i am sure there are a lot of kids who were wearing Mossimo clothes. Though it was not a requirement that they be in a Mossimo clothes. But I am sure they had a bit of earning from the mothers who wanted their baby to be models. I was fighting the urge to get a Mossimo shirt for Kiara, secretly I had that wishful thinking that I want at least for Kiara to be considered but then again I know it is really hard to get Kiara to do what we want. Kids are kids.

I do not want to accuse Mossimo, myfameandforture.com and the Festival mall of deceiving us mothers, because we came there at our own free will and we did not pay for anything. It is a valid model search and I just want to wish those selected luck and hope next time we can attend earlier and Kiara will learn to smile. She will be older then..

It was fun though seeing the mothers and the kids, prepping their children. Though it was also not fun seeing mothers asking their children to do what they want, like I've been in the waiting area and one mother was yelling to his son " sit, sit sit!" just like a dog..

What a sight!
