My Mom Back On My Wedding Day

We all know that everyone’s attention are fixed to the bride and groom in a wedding, especially the gown and tux they are wearing, but do you know is the next in the limelight?

The parents of the newly weds, particularly the mothers of course.

My mom is really not into taking care of things, nor organizing events, but she made sure that she showed her 100% support during the preparation of my wedding, 7 years ago.  Even when we are picking out her own mother-of-the-bride dress, she may seem enthusiastic but I can feel she is somewhat uncomfortable.  Hmm, I guess she’s uncomfortable on the thought that I was already getting married.  I think, that’s the reason, well, she didn’t confess.

Or, she might be worrying about her dress that time.  If only has offered designer mother of the bride dresses back then she might not have got worried about it.  I saw lots of lovely mother of the bride dresses,, and I have liked a few of them.

My mom might not into fashion that much but her style speaks of simplicity and conservatism, that’s why I like this three from  Though I wished that they have these mother of the bride dresses back then, my mom still looked lovely on my wedding day.

Reviewing for Exams Week (1st Quarter)

Last week Little Zoie was absent because of her fever and cough, and since her class was just reviewing for the upcoming 1st quarter exams this coming August 13-15 (Wed toFri), we decided to just let her stay at home and rest and once in a while she’ll get to review for her lessons.

She got well before the weekend so the once in while review has became a serious studying.  Though she did not get to attend school last week, we got a hold of a copy of their pointers.  Of course, as a mom, I have to gather intel regarding what happened in school whenever my little girl is absent.  Do they have assignments and or will have a quiz on the next day, or such.



Just to make sure that everything we reviewed are well understood, I gave her quizzes in all her subjects.



There are subjects and lessons she still gets confused but we still have a couple more days to iron that out.  Hopefully she’ll not get confused by the time of the exams.

God bless you and your exams, Little Zoie!



More School Events Coming Up, What To Wear?

Nutrition month has already passed and we are currently anticipating another school event, Linggo ng Wika.  I always anticipate such school events because I know we are going to prepare costumes for our little students.  Just like the okra costume me and my mother-in-law helped create.

from my personal blog,


Linggo ng Wika is one school event for the month of August, Nutrition month is last month, July, of course, it happens every year.  Like most of the school events, we will be needing another costume.  We had one for the last two years but I’m afraid it doesn’t fit Little Zoie anymore.  She has grown way taller than last year, and maybe they’ll be requiring a different Filipina costume for this year’s Linggo ng Wika.

The next school event that I’m sure to prepare a month earlier will be the United Nations Day.  Just as practiced, each student will represent a country, included in the United Nations Organization, and will wear that country’s national costume.  See, another costume to prepare!  Haha.  I don’t want to be stressed out with this kind of extra curricular activity expenses that’s why I am anticipating it way too early.  The latter school event I mentioned is to be held on October, fall season.

Speaking of fall season, another school event that pops in my mind is a homecoming event.  This event is when the homecoming royalties, the homecoming king and queen, have been anticipating months ahead just like me.  And it will be a great help for the returning alumni to be able to prepare for their big event by visiting this site – — pick out their perfect homecoming dresses 2014.

Preparing for any school events, big or small, ahead of time is not such a bad idea.  Of course, take note also, to inquire on things relating to the school event.  If you just assume on what costumes your kids should wear, instead of creating a smooth and steady flow when preparing, it will all be headache if you miss on details.  That’s why, ahead of time, I am already shooting my questions on upcoming school events weeks earlier.  As soon as possible if you must.
