Were you glued to your laptop last week?  I was.  I wanted to rejoice with the rest of the world the birth of the brand new iPhone 5.   Are you going to get it?  Did you pre-order?

A, C, B+ and a D+.

This is the subject he has the most trouble and the one that his teacher has embraced him with.   His teacher is awesome! I am so proud of him.  {Read More}

Mega Bloks Lil’ Princess 3-Story Enchanted Castle {Giveaway}

There is nothing like seeing your little princess play with a princess castle.  I’ve been watching my daughter and hearing her play with Mega Bloks Lil’ Princess 3-Story Enchanted Castle. The stories that she makes up are incredibly cute and sweet.  I am amazed at how deep her imagination is.   There are times that her characters are fictional and so far out of reality and I find it comical.  I try not to laugh because then she will know that {Read More}

When I found out I was pregnant with my fist child I was determined for him or her to be bilingual.   One thing I always did was sit in font of the TV and listen to the news in tagalog.

With the award winning products from Little Pim, one of the leaders in {Read More}

Ahhh, the memories of my youth.  I spent many fall nights at Knott’s Scary Farm- Halloween Haunt all throughout high school.  During those days, it was the place to be for Halloween.  Of course, the only way to go was with your boyfriend.  That way there was a silly excuse to hold him, hug him and climb on him when you would get scared.  Oh come on, now… you all know exactly when I mean! So, is this event for {Read More}

I had to continue on with the {Read More}

There are some kids that need an extra push to finish or even try to eat a salad.   I have a rare gem in my home.  My kids like to eat salads.   Even though the salad is just plain lettuce and dressing, they gobble the whole thing down.  I just sit with amazement and a heart full of pride. When I moved to the OC 3 years ago, my oldest son got to experience a salad bar at his school {Read More}
