Road Map to Perfect Moments

With all those perfect feeds coming my way I sometimes lose it and start looking for perfection from myself and from my kids. And the more I seek perfection, the farther away it gets. So, when I do remember how heavy the road to perfection is, I just breathe and let moments unfold. And truly there are lots of those perfect moments along the way.  Umaapaw.

Road map to Perfect Moments.  Let go of perfection.

TheGoMom Favorite Quote #4

Life is about moments.  Don't wait for them, create them.

Exactly a year ago, I took a break from motherhood and took an amazing 6-day, 13,000 feet, 48 km trek up the beautiful mountains of Lantang, Nepal (read about my adventure here)

The breather enriched me.

Cheers to moments we create!

The Week that Was: Nutrition Week of My Pre-Schooler

It has been a busy week for my pre-schooler.  Monday was their fruit costume parade.  Grover!  Na-challenge ang aking creative skills because we needed to make costumes for them out of cartolina etc.  My first question was,  how in the world, does he wear a cartolina?  Of course the internet is not lacking in resources.

I made him into an adorable strawberry:-) hehe it was the easiest.  With my daughter's help,  we cut out a red cartolina into a strawberry, painted the seeds then cut and paste the leaves.  To put it on him,  we just taped a string at the edge of the strawberry and hung it over his neck.

Thursday, I was the guest parent and I was invited to prepare a healthy snack for the kids.  It was a bit challenging because reality tells me most kids think healthy is boring and not yummy, nyikes!   I relied on what works for my kids.  Thanks to my Jack LaLanne Power Juicer,  I was able to make juice from fresh carrots, pineapples, apples and oranges and the kids loved it!  They enjoyed dumping the fruits and veggies in the juicer chute and watch it transform to juice.  I also helped them prepare their own cheese with cucumber sandwich.  Some kids ate the sandwich, some didn't but everyone loved the juice.  Lasang pineapple-orange of Del Monte:-)

The culminating activity was an hour long parent-child session at CrossFit!  All the kids enjoyed.  My son was so flushed with joy his cheeks were all red.  And syempre ang mothers, napagod sa circuit training.  CrossFit has CrossFit Kids na pala.

Most of the parents in my son's pre-school seems to be first time parents,  so you can just imagine the age gap!  I have a 13 year old!  O di ba?!?  pi-no-po nila ako!   Ancient!  There was another parent there feeling ko ka-age but ang sexy and ang ganda ng hair color, in fairnesses she looked younger!  Time to head to the salon and gym!!!

Lastly,  I'm in love with the pre-school of my son!  The curriculum is structured in a very holistic manner and the parents are heavily involved. They address all basic skills my son needs from writing, reading, manners, virtues, nationalism and health!  I can't say the name just yet for privacy purposes but I will when he is in big school na.

How about you, how was your week?
