toddler moments

It was a rainy Tuesday morning, although it was raining my Little Zoie’s preschool hasn’t announced their suspension of classes.

I already have set my decision of not letting her go to school but seeing the excitement in her eyes when she learned she’ll be wearing her uniform for the first time, I let her dressed up.

While waiting for the rain to stop before setting out for school, I took some pictures of her wearing her school uniform, not a cherokee workwear scrubs, for the first time.  ^_^

After this little photoshoot, the rain was still pouring hard, I decided to inform her teacher that she’s not to school.  But was I was starting to compose my message, she texted me that there’s no school for today.  It was rather late for them to cancel the classes, so I made a discretion that next time it will rain, we without any announcement, she’s not come to school.  I am more concern about her health and safety, because we are commuting, than charging in the rain just to attend school.

Also, I want to share Little Zoie’s song while waiting for the rain to stop so she can go to school…

“Rain, rain, go away,

Come again another day,

Little Zoie wants to go to school!”


Last week, Little Zoie didn’t get 5 out of 5 stars/stickers.

Nope. I’m not regretting that, I know that she’s doing her best in school, and I know that she’s doing a great job everyday.

Actually, there’s a story behind why she got 3 stars/stickers.

Monday was a regular routine for the class: learning, writing and other activities.  And that she got a ‘Happy’ star.

Tuesday, it’s a birthday celebration of one of her classmates, Maxene. This will be a different post. The party lasts for an hour and 15 minutes, so the remaining 45 minutes was supposed to be regular classes.
But that’s not the case, they little children we’re already hyper because of all the games in the party so the attention for learning is not there anymore. The teacher decided to let them color the rest of the class since they are not paying attention anymore. So, no star there.

Wednesday. The little one was in no mood to smile because she didn’t get a star. But when I checked her Diary notebook, it said ‘Good job’. I suspected that they ran out of ink in their stamp pad to stamp the ‘Happy’ star.

My suspicion was confirmed the next day… they are now getting stickers for their job well done in school!

Let’s see if they’re giving ‘Happy’ stars or stickers next week… 🙂

Great job, my Little Zoie!

Her little reward… she’s requesting donuts for all her stars/stickers.  ^_^

Ruby Tuesday 2 #1


It’s just the second week of my Little Zoie’s Kindergarten days and a birthday event has been celebrated yesterday.  It was Little Zoie’s classmate, Maxene.


The pink girl sitting is Maxene.

It was the first birthday among the classmates and since the whole of Kindergarten 1 is consists of 6 students in all, the mother of the birthday celebrant invited the kids in the Toddler section as well. Good thing, I was able to go to the supermarket the day before the birthday and bought the birthday girl a present.

The party was full of games, and of course food.  The highlights are the games.  The party started with singing a birthday song to the celebrant, then a prayer.

They all sat down on the carpeted floor and pray…

The first game was ‘Bring Me’.  I am one of the parents who were on the party that day and I want my Little Zoie to play fair, so I decided not to help her with any games.  I was really holding myself back not to be a stage mom here.  All I did was take pictures in the background, is that being a stage mom too?!?!  ^_^

Second game, ‘Find The Eggs’ like an egg-hunting game during Easter Sunday.

My little one actually found to eggs during the game. She’s the first one to find an egg, and then she still looked some more and found another one!

Third game is ‘Trip to Jerusalem’, or also known as musical chairs.  I took the video of the game and pictures as well.  😉  But I’ll be sharing a photo of the game played.

After the three tiring games, the teachers let them eat. Maxene’s party foods are care of McDonald’s SM-Muntinlupa.


After eating, there are still two games to be played.  ‘Scoop the Marbles’ and ‘Pin That Tail’ respectively.

Sorry I didn’t have a picture on ‘Pin That Tail’, I only have a video but I haven’t uploaded it.
After all the five games, it’s time to hand out the loot bags and little balloons as well.

The party lasted for 1 hour and a half leaving 45 more minutes in resuming their regular class.  Do you think this already hyper kids will listen for any discussion?  Nah, I don’t think so.  ^_^  Because as I was waiting beyond the room for their class to end, while surfing on a free wi-fi for a WordPress slider, a plugin I want to install on my blog, I can still hear the little kiddos still giggling and laughing.

When their class ended, at the same time I finished checking out SlideDeck, I learned from Teacher Gen, she’s also my cousin, that they only practice writing and had a little color activity too since the children are not in the mood for learning. They are still in the mood of having fun.  Go figure!  ^_^

As you can see, yesterday was definitely one of Little Zoie’s fun day at school!
