For The 3rd Time Around

Yes, the school has just given their grades/report cards for the third grading period and he maintained the first slot.

Proud Nonna here. I remember those days when your mommy and your ninong used to receive awards every school year until your mommy graduated Magna  Cum Laude in college. You have passed on the good gene Nissa 🙂

Nilahat mo na –  Batang Maasahan, Joyful Thanksgiver, Busy Bee.  Love that perfect attendance. Hope to see you next Saturday.

Those Funny Moments

DREAMS AND ESCAPES

Nate could act like a grown-up sometime.  I read these from Nissa’s wall and I was like, “he could say these?” But it is so typical of Nate. He is just six acting like twenty. Amazing!

“I’ll be an engineer or a pilot for you someday, Mom. All the money I’ll get, I’ll give to you. We will buy anything you want. Because you take good care of me, it’s my turn to take care of you. A promise is a promise!”

He hasn’t forgotten his dreams of  being a pilot someday. When he graduated from Kinder I two years ago, he donned a pilot’s uniform, then he met an actual pilot at the Manila Hotel where their graduation was held.

Looking good in your uniform Nate!

He felt suddenly shy meeting a real pilot.

Out of the blue, he blurted out:

“Mommy how did you break up with your…

Peter Pan

Can’t help but smile a little at these photos of Nate as Peter Pan for English Week. Peter Pan…the boy who refused to grow up.

Nissa made the hat. That’s real feather on his hat. She bought the costume. You make a “pogi” Peter Pan Nate 🙂

Truly, it was another day worth remembering. When Nate is around, the house is alive too.  I took some shots of Nate on my tab while he was opening his gifts from and when we tried to assemble those tiny plastic toys to form an Apache Helicopter and a toy truck. Once he saw the boxes, he shouted, “amazing Nonna, I love these”. You’re welcome baby. Nice to know you like them. Since I just used my tab, the photos are not that clear.

I haven’t bought a new camera yet, I am so lazy to go out and buy one. Besides, my cash here would probably not enough for a good camera yet. I don’t want to use my credit card when it comes to items that I want but don’t have the immediate need  of it.

 

He was just excited to see his gifts from Nonna.

 

What are they Nate?

 

Haha, and your mom is so good at it. Nonna doesn’t know how to follow instructions.

 

Let’s start with the Apache helicopter next, as if I could…haha 🙂

He brought along some of his Lego toys. The toy trucks, airplanes and dinosaurs were already assembled earlier.

Lovely!

 

Dinosaurs, airplanes, trucks and what have you.

 

Hmm….I am truly impressed with your collection.

Does he like the book?  He does.  He scanned the pages and took note of the illustrations in every page. Then he said, “I like to read Stuart Little”.  His kuya Kevin gave him a book too for his birthday while my friend Lilet gave him a set of slim volumes of fairy tales. They were written in bold letters so I am sure he could read them now.

Before they went home, we spent about an hour at the garden shooting targets from his toy gun.

Another Saturday of precious bonding.

Another Award For Our Baby

Again, for the nth time, I am proud of this little boy.  They were just given their report cards for the second grading and he got the highest score just like the first grading period.

When a family member is recognized for his achievements, you feel like you are also a winner and you feel that pride of place for being his Nonna.

Ang batang maasahan (a kid you could rely on), a joyful thanksgiver and a busy bee. I could understand the busy bee. He is just so active sometimes he volunteers with works that he can handle. At his young age, he is so responsible.

Proud Nonna here. See you tomorrow baby.

Birthday Pictures (Nate at 6)

Since it was a school day, they spent  late lunch at TGI Fridays and dinner at home. Nate  wished it was his birthday every day 🙂 Nissa and the staff of TGI Fridays staff took some shots.  Such a happy kid. I am sharing them with you here.

 

 

 

Happy Birthday Nate

Time flies.

It’s your 6th birthday.

I still could remember the night you were born. Your dad and I were so excited when we were summoned to the delivery room to wait for your birth. We didn’t know you have to stay at the NICU because you had sepsis brought on by the slow labor of your mom after you were induced. The OB Gyn decided for the CS operation a little too late. I got pretty mad because of their neglect.

Good thing your pediatrician was a very good doctor explaining everything to us while you stayed at the NICU for almost a month.

When you were a year old, I wrote a similar letter to you hoping that when you grow a little older and could read every word, you will be able to appreciate it.  I am writing to you again today on your 6th birthday.

Nonna is so proud that  you are doing so well in school, always with high honors and good grades. Nonna is so proud that you have become an articulate little boy who could sometimes argue your point while you also listen. Nonna is so proud that you are growing smartly.  You no longer start your sentence with “One day……”. You tell your own stories now, not those tales that you remember. You talk about school and your friends.  You talk about always being happy to be here at home, sometimes you don’t even want to take a bath because to you that means going home soon :).

HAPPY, HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY.  May you grow to be God-loving,  healthy, smart, loving and lovable, kind, compassionate, caring and respectful to your elders. See you soon!
