MGR#20 Pillows & Blankets

My sister likes to play pretend which she started at a very young age. I think I am a good teacher, lol! She can already play pretend on her own now. Mommy said she sometimes pretend to be cooking, pretends to be a rock star/singer and sometimes a photographer. But these play pretends for a toddler like her spells mess too! Check out this photo where she was trying to keep the pillows and blankets yet ended up playing and messing up with them. I was at school that time this was taken so she maybe pretending the pillows are her playmates. She must be missing me a lot whenever I am at school. Do you know that she get way too excited when I arrive in the afternoon? You'll hear a laughing scream every time I enter the gate or the door. Ha ha! I so love my sister even if she gets too physical sometimes that it hurts me. We do play mild wrestling too. lol!

Before and After

I had a haircut and a new look. Mom said I looked old and my long hair made me look soooooo thin so she persuaded me to have a haircut instead. I agreed after a long talk, ha ha! I love to have long hair but Mommy is right. I will have a hard time gaining weight if my hair takes the protein that should have been for my body. And, I started having lice which is a bigger problem. I am already using a shampoo intended to remove and prevent head lice. It has to be treated because Mommy started to feel the itch already. =(

So which is better, the before or the after? =)

Rank 4

When I showed Mommy my 1st quarter exam results, she was surprised. It was a surprise of disappointment. I have been scolded with words and questions. Mommy said she is sorry that she rarely gets to review me but also mentioned that I should have learned to do it on my own especially that I am already in 4th grade. She told me to be self reliant and independent. I can always ask help from her but she wants to also see me do my part and explained that it will benefit me in so many ways. She even told me that I am lucky to be in a private school. My parents are products of public elementary schools. Mommy even had to study for 3 years at Buhi, Camarines Sur. She said that she sometimes go to school wearing just slippers, no money to buy anything and she had to walk to school and on her way back home. There was no TV, no computers nor cell phones. Since my great grandmother had a store and newspaper stand, Mommy gets to read a lot. They have a lot of newspaper, magazines and “komiks”. She always had her English-Tagalog dictionary at hand so when she comes across a word she cannot understand, she can easily look for it in the dictionary.

When the PTC was held, Mommy was again surprised that I end up at rank 4. We were not expecting that. She gave me a reward for that but still, the reminder to study before play is there. This week is our 2nd mid quarter exams already. I am hoping to show my parents better results. I like to feel good and be proud of my achievement too.

And, yes! I had a haircut! The cute hair accessory was made by Mommy.
