Kyle wanted to know how big his feet were next to Jake's.(N7650)
Just sharing with you a hilarious email I received a long time ago from my friend Chuck. I am crossing my fingers my kids don't put this to heart...

For those who already have children past this age, this is hilarious.
For those who have children this age, this is not funny.
For those who have children nearing this age, this is a warning.
For those who have not yet had children, this is birth control.

The following came from an anonymous mother in Austin, Texas:

Things I've Learned From My Children (honest & no kidding)
1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. 4 inches deep.
2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
3. A 3-year old's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 room.
5. You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.
6. The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.
7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh," it's already too late.
8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.
9. A six-year old can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old man says they can only do it in the movies.
10. Certain Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old.
11. Playdoh and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.
12. Super glue is forever.
13. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool, you still can't walk on water.
14. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.
15. VCRs do not eject PB&J sandwiches, even though TV commercials show they do.
16. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.
17. Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.
18. You probably don't want to know what that smell is.
19. Always look in the oven before you turn it on. Plastic toys do not like ovens.
20. The fire department in Austin, TX has a 5-minute response time.
21. The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.
22. It will, however, make cats dizzy.
23. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.
24. The mind of a 6-year old is wonderful.

First grade...true story:

One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class. She came to the part of the story where the first pig was trying to accumulate the building materials for his home. She read, "......And so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and said, 'Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that straw to build my house?'"

The teacher paused then, and asked the class, "And what do you think that man said ?" One little boy raised his hand and said, "I think he said...'Holy sh_t! A talking pig !"

The teacher was unable to talk for the next 10 minutes.

Mountain View

The kids and me at the sunken garden
A kiddie party was being held down below...

The weather started out fine yesterday so we decided to check out Mountain View high up in the mountains of Cebu by 5PM. The trip didn't take long. After weaving our way along the winding mountain road, we were at the place in no time. Lugging along our junk food and water, we found a place to sit at one of the designated areas in the park. There were about 2 families already having their picnic and karaoke showdown. I thought this was a wholesome alternative to spending time in the malls.

For about 30 minutes, we enjoyed the cool mountain breeze, marvelled at the view of Cebu and the nearby Mactan Island, and took some pictures. There was even a kiddie birthday party going on at the garden right below where we were located. Then it began to turn cloudy. Soon enough, it started to pour, the rains were moving towards where we were. Before 6PM, we were on our way down worried that the rains might get us stranded there.

The visit to the park was short and left us wanting to see more of the place. So we planned to go back soon... when the weather is perfect.

More Reasons to Be Thankful For

Getting ready for the appointment with the Pediatrician...
Di-hia Kyle & Joy are busy putting on my shoes
Waiting for Ma & Pa to take me to the clinic.
Jake gained 3 pounds from last month and weighs 11 pounds today, exactly 3 months from birth. He seems to be growing really well and Dr. Diaz, Jerry and I couldn't be happier. Jake looked very responsive to Doctora as she was talking to him during the check-up. He was smiling and cooing alternately. The check-up was over in a short while, after which, we were given a CD of classical Baroque music for Jake's brain stimulation. According to research, Baroque music helps a lot not only in brain development but also in calming and soothing the baby. Not only Jake, I'm sure the whole family will be listening to Bach, Vivaldi and Mozart now and in the coming days....

After getting back to my office, I received an email saying that the additional maternity benefit was already deposited to my account. So I promptly went online to check my account balance. Lo! I was surprised to see a 6-digit figure to my normally 5-digit atm balance. Immediately I called up Cymbie of Payroll to point out the mistake but she wasn't at her desk. The phone just kept on ringing. Then I called Grace of Treasury to verify the amount they credited.... After going through the details of the computation, it turned out that what was deposited was really the right amount. The RIGHT AMOUNT was 2 months and 18 days of my basic salary!!! I found out (only now) that since 1997, the maternity benefit is either from SSS or from the employer whichever is higher. I'm not too sure though if this applies to all or only for our company.

Hmmm, maybe I should rethink. Giving birth pala is big business! Hehehe.
