Preschool at the Fort Soft Launch

Looking for the right school is a personal thing, for me it's like searching for your soulmate, like the right OB-Gyne and pedia doctor. There must be that sparkle, the feeling of comfort and ease; because after all, the experience is private and personal.
TBH, I'm torn on whether to homeschool Clyde (because we travel a lot) or just let him attend conventional school (because as of now, I don't have enough time). First off, I'm wham-ing (work-at-home mom with no helper) and I ebf my almost two-month nursling (exclusive breastfeeding without pump; I patronize breastfeeding yet I hate the pump, what a convenience! But that's another story).
Preschool technically means before school, so even when I'm so eager to make Clyde learn to read, write and do the math right away, I want to take it easy on him.
Having said that, I rely on Disney Junior's High Five, Baby TV and Youtube's The Mother Goose Club to do some teachings. One guilty mom here! So when Ms. May of FullyHousewifed invites moms with toddler to try Preschool at the Fort, I immediately said yes.
the calm before the storm...
Preschool that focuses on play is enough for kids to prepare themselves for real school. By play, means practicing children's social skills, includes actively moving around which will strengthen their gross and fine motor skills.
Teacher Edgar reminds us to bring a bottle of water, towelette and extra shirt so apparently, Preschool at the Fort offers play-based learning - the best early childhood education practice. It is learning less the stress and more of the fun. They cater kids 3-5 years old to explore their environment, discover things while encouraging their talent. Learn based on their strength, do activities where they are good at, and support their interest be it music, art, numbers, etc.
I liked the idea of play-based learning. It is logical to think that the best way to get the toddler interested on learning is while they are having fun in a relaxed environment. No stress yet, besides they're just toddlers, let them have fun, let them be. I now strongly believe in the idea of stress-free environment especially after reading the recent news about this tragedy.
I learned that what happens on the first years of life is a crucial factor of what they will become as adults. That is the reason why I breastfeed Clyde for the first 6 exclusive months and let him self-wean at age 3. That is also why I like Preschool at the Fort.
Early Years Learning Framework of Preschool at the Fort focuses on
  • Children's Identity - the school addresses gender-biased point of view
  • Overall Well Being - physically and emotionally
  • To be a Contributing Citizen to Their World
  • Effective Communicators - socializing
  • Involved Learners - give and take relationship of teacher and student
Circle Time with Parents
The soft launch started with Kinder Music by Teacher Charis. Turns out, Teacher Charis is a professional singer and a pianist too.
Fast and Slow, Up and Down Dance with Teacher Cecille and Teacher Lei
Storytelling starred my kid - Farmer Clyde. Farmer Clyde who run around while the group sat on a circle - his classmates listening. My sister Beth told me, he is listening too while running around, he even answered correctly at times. I had a hard time making Clyde follow the crowd. Not because he don't know anything about Wheels on the bus and the Finger Family, heck, Incy Wincy is his best bud! But because he is intimidated by other toddlers; he is not used on sharing his adult's attention to others, that is why he is trying to go against the flow. As much as I want to start him schooling, I think he's not ready yet, maybe next year? I had to start on doing something about his social skills first or else he will tire out his teachers and suck everyone's energy. Oh Lloydie! The lesson ended in a song and a prayer too.
The best part about Preschool at the Fort aside from its relaxed environment, is that they are not very particular in taking school work at home aka homework. Schoolwork stays at school. Who wants burned out toddlers anyway? Plus, it may dismay them on entering the world of proper education, turn off their enthusiasm to learn because homework at this stage is just an unnecessary pressure.

Jerson Dave

It's officially 6 weeks today! Hello Jerson Dave!
Last June 12, around 3:30am, a 3.315kgs baby (that's around 8lbs) was delivered. I'll leave you hanging in there, so watch out for my birthing story that I know will take me forever to post. Yeah, honest much?
Having another baby always involves some feelings of ambivalence. Nevertheless, "A parents love is whole no matter how many times divided." - Robert Brault
I rest my case, it is possible to love more than one child in equal measure because for every child, you have your heart expands and responds in a unique way to that unique little person.
Well, hey I'm a momma of not just one, but two now; an active toddler and an ebf newborn - pumps and formula. Yay, no sleep!
Jerson Clyde meet Jerson Dave for the first time.
It is official. I have not one, not two, but three Jersons in my life. Wow.

My Dates at Vikings!

One of the best time to bond with the family is through eating; checking each other's day, sharing stories and discuss the weather, next outing, next food trip... Even my toddler is a foodie. He loves Lola Ellen's homemade carrot siomai, Tita Beth's graham cake and Tito Mike's sweet rolls; and just for the sake of it, we tried Viking's at SM Megamall.
Can't you see the excitement in his face already? The balloon didn't do much in distracting him on the beautiful chaos that surrounds him. He he The queue is getting heavier by the minute.

He enjoyed his dinner made of dimsum, hotpot, personalized pizza (which is mushrooms and green bell peppers) and some lamb chops.image
This night is well spent. Laughter. Spills of sauces and thousand visit to the juice aisle. Our tummies our full and our hearts content.
I am looking forward in returning to Vikings. Maybe in SM Jazz mall or Aura next time? Where do you prefer?

Frisomum - Pregnant and Lactating Mom's Milk

Trusted for more than 20 countries worldwide, now Frisomum finally arrived here in the Philippines!
Well actually its been quite awhile now. What gets my attention is the uniqueness of this milk, as it is not exclusive for pregnant moms but is also recommended for breastfeeding moms too. And since I'm on my third trimester that time, I won't worry that I might not finished my milk in time. I just have to continue drinking it as it also help in boosting milk supply; just what I needed as I am pledged to exclusively breastfeed my second babe, Dave just like what I did Clyde.
For my two pregnancies, I experimented on milk - tried so many brands and in my own weird sense, the taste varied from brands and flavors. There are now different flavors of pregnant milk to make this morning ritual bearable. But as for me, I prefer the original flavor, vanilla. Lucky me, my only problem was the taste (I gagged sometimes when I try to pull off a bottoms up - I know, silly me!); some are having stomach ache, or worse, the lbm.
The taste? It's not just tolerable for the weird pregnant taste buds, its delicious -at least for me. Sugar is
Five scoops in a cup of hot water, this drink is complete in nutrition. Packed with essential vitamins and minerals for mom and baby. I actually just finished this whole can one month after giving birth!

Style in the City: Daily Essentials for the Modern Urban Commuter

Daily traffic gets so heavy nowadays that it’s become a running joke that commuters in the metro need to gear up for war every day. Between getting to the office on time, work meetings, lunch dates, last-minute night outs, and other activities, modern women have to look and feel put together anytime, anywhere. Here are some commuter essentials to help you maintain comfort and composure during rush hours:
01_Casual Bag
Hands-free Casual Bag
Bags with long shoulder straps are ideal for commuting. Hands-free bags make holding coffee, checking emails, and retouching makeup possible all at the same time. Opt for casual yet stylish bucket bags, messenger bags, and backpacks that can be casually worn on the shoulders and hold them in front the body to guard personal belongings.
Statement Sunglasses
Statement sunglasses are a must-have in every modern commuter’s arsenal. Its multiple uses include 1) protecting the eyes and blocking out the harsh sun rays, 2) keeping an #OOTD game on point even without a finished makeup look, and 3) as camouflage when taking a much-needed power nap after a late night.
Makeup Kit
Speaking of makeup, pack a small pouch with toiletries and makeup essentials to be able to refresh and retouch on the go. A compact mirror, lipstick, oil-control film, comb, and perfume will go a long way in making anyone look fresh for all appointments for the day.
Doodle Notebook
Gather your thoughts, make a to-do list, doodle, or write a journal entry while on the commute. Clearing the mind and putting ideas on paper helps any busy woman get ready for the day ahead.
Stylish Earphones
Listen to a playlist of favorite morning music to keep the pep in every step despite the morning rush. Try downloading audiobooks and language courses too, and learn new stuff while on the go.
AnytimeAnywhere with Butterfly Twists_square
Chic and Comfortable Footwear
Even the best outfits can look average with the wrong pair of shoes. Women-on-the-go with things to do and places to go to need footwear that can keep up with their daily sartorial needs. Butterfly Twists’ collection of stylish folding footwear can be worn for everyday use and are perfect for almost any occasion – from driving to clubbing and shopping to traveling.  Butterfly Twists’ innovative design and soft memory foam soles make walking around the metro more enjoyable.
