caitlyn at star city

We were supposed to check out the newly opened Global Fun Carnival but it rained on our way so just decided to go to Star City. It was Caitlyn's first time at Star City. My love and I haven't been to the place for ages, as well. We weren't very impressed with the place, but was happy because Caitlyn had so much fun. Caitlyn was so brave to ride all by herself in the Rodeo ride. I was a little nervous at first because she might stand up. But she handled the ride really well. My little girl is really all grown up now.

my swimming princess

After being canceled for so many time due to different reasons, Caitlyn was able to "test the waters" of the Sherwood pool last Sunday. We went with my 10yr old nephew, Neekee.

The little princess had so much fun! Unfortunately, it rained so I had to take her off the pool.

missing gymboree

When Caitlyn woke up this morning, she was so excited and said, "Mom, it's Gymboree day!" When we told her we're not going to Gymboree because it's "broken", tears fell down from her eyes. It broke our heart, really! The little girl misses Gymboree so much!

Gymboree classes in Glorietta have been suspended since last week and will not resume until the week of November 5. Gymboree decided to suspend classes for a couple of weeks to "give everyone the chance to recover" from the tragic incident last week. That means no Gymboree classes for Caitlyn until November 10th. We're not even sure if we can attend the November 1oth class because we have a birthday party to attend. Oh well.

We brought her to MOA instead and had her enjoyed the Carousel :)

i'm a proud mom

She's never cranky..
She never throws a tantrum..
You'll never see her frowning..
She always has a smile on her face...
She's simply adorable...

And I thank God for giving her to us...


Caitlyn sometimes messes around and turns off the TV while somebody else is watching. Then when asked to turn it on, would pretend that she doesn't know where the power switch is and would point to all of the buttons except the power.

Last night, she was messing with her Yaya.

Caitlyn: Yaya, this? (pointing to the volume adjustment button)
No answer from yaya. Busy texting.

Caitlyn: Yaya, this? (now pointing to the tuner)
Still no answer from yaya.

Caitlyn: Yaya, texting?

hahahaha! nainis na yata!

I'm very paranoid to go to any public places since the Glorietta incident last Friday. Until now, there's still no result of the investigation but it's leaning towards an industrial accident rather than a terrorist attack.

So what really scares me? Two things. First, if this is just an accident, this could really happen to any other malls or buildings. Glorietta is one of the biggest malls in the metro, so if this happened to Glorietta, this could also happen to any other mall. We frequent the mall at least once a week. Caitlyn attends Gymboree classes at Glorietta every Saturday. Secondly, a detained senator-elect was firm in saying that the incident was not an accident but a bomb attack. He was claiming there will be couple more attacks. If the incident will be proven as an accident, he might save his pride and make all things possible so the other attacks will happen and prove him right.

Am I starting to get crazy or what!? I really would just want to stay safe at home. But some are not safe even at home.

What's happening to our country? Is this really not a safe place to live in?

Oh Lord, please watch and keep us..

With the long holiday coming up, there seems to be too many things to do with too little time. The civic is already in the shop for repair. Doesn't have an idea on when this will be ready. Unfortunately, the other car is already due for maintenance. We need to bring it to the casa as well before the long holiday.

I'm also due for a follow up check with my doctor. We were supposed to go to Makati Med today, but for some personal reason, we had to cancel.

Team activities are also scheduled this week here at work. My husband will have dinner tomorrow, then me on Friday. I have yet to schedule 2 activities for my other teams. I had decline from the bowling activity this Friday because of the schedule conflict with my other team. You see, that's the problem when you have about 7 different teams.

We also need to buy a few more stuff for the "new house". After the Friday Glorietta incident, I'm actually very paranoid to go to Glorietta. Especially that it hasn't been confirmed yet if it was really a bomb or plain accident. Paranoia is hitting me. What if something's really wrong with the building structure? What if the Sunday fire was actually related to the Friday incident. Oh well, will probably just go to SM instead. hehe

I hope I get to accomplish everything before the week ends.

beautiful sunday morning

We overslept last Sunday and woke up really late. Actually, Caitlyn just woke us up.

Caitlyn: Mom, wake up! Caitlyn wants pancake.
Me: Ok. Mommy will cook pancakes.

I checked the watch while preparing to get up and was surprised to see that it's already 10AM!

Me: Do you know what time it is?!?!?! (talking to Carlo)
Caitlyn: It's pancake (time)!!!

caitlyn's first

Another "first" for Caitlyn. I'm just glad she's finally overcome her fears for toy rides. She can't get enough of these and actually had 7 rounds. Amusement center will definitely be a regular stop on our weekend malling!

Papa Ben

We visited my father-in-law last Friday at Manila Memorial. Caitlyn never saw her grand dad. He passed away in May 2004, 8 days after our wedding, a day after MyLove and I arrived from our Boracay honeymoon and a day before our supposedly Hawaii honeymoon. Obviously, we had to cancel our Hawaii honeymoon and planned to do that some other time. Unfortunately, we never found the time to do so.

Even if Caitlyn never saw her Papa Ben alive, she could easily recognize him from the pictures. She says "Papa Ben" as if she knows him really well. Could he have been alive, Papa Ben would surely be very fond of Caitlyn. But I know, he's watching Caitlyn all the time. I'm sure he'd have made a great father-in-law to me and a grandfather to Caitlyn.

RL model

Caitlyn wanted to wear an RL shirt to bed - crying out "Caitlyn wants horsey!" My goodness, I can't have her wear an RL polo shirt in bed. So here's what I did..

I used her washable marker and drew a green horse on her shirt! She seemed to have a preference on RL shirt. She usually requests to wear "horsey" whenever we go out on weekends. Oh no, baka mamulubi kami ng dad nya!

Calling Mr. Ralph Lauren.. you may be needing a new image model ;)

Caitlyn's master piece -- she said it's her dad :)
