Accident Happen

I am currently in Germany and will be traveling around meeting our suppliers and attending Fespa in Munich. Will probably stay here for 3 weeks, I hope. If not one month, at least that is what is written in our ticket.

I miss my family terribly especially my dear Alexa.. my mini-me. Feeling cold and lonely, I was browsing through iPhoto when I came across the photos of Alexa I took after an incident.

One night, I heard a loud noise next door, then I heard her crying out loud. I hurriedly got up and saw Alexa's hand in blood. My poor, dear Alexa.

The yaya went to the rest room to pee leaving Alexa behind, then being a child, she then put her fingers in the electric fan.. waaaa.. so shocking!

I was so shocked but never really panicked! I normally panicked when accident happens. But when your kids are at stake, you have to be in focus!

I cleaned it and immediately rushed to the hospital. I was so worried as Daddy was in Indonesia, so no choice but to call Uncle to drive us to the nearest hospital, St. Dominic.

The nurse cleaned and checked her hand. What a brave little girl! She didnt cry at all. Then the doctor came and he wanted to do X-ray. I told him no need for Xray as she can freely move her fingers and didnt even cry while the nurse was holding, cleaning, pressing the wound. He realized that I stand firm in my decision so after a few seconds, he said that as long as I will sign a waiver then no xray will be perform. So be it. I talked to another nurse and ask for her opinion and she have the same opinion.

Lessons learned. Baby proof your surroundings. Use ceiling fan or stand fan so she cannot reach. She might climb though but that's a different story.

The Karate Kids

During summer time, its always good to find activities for the kids. I believe that its not nice for them to stay at home, get bored and just watch TV the whole time.

So I enrolled them for Taekwondo classes. Since Christoph is still too young, he has a different class from his Kuya Francis, he belong to the kids taekwondo thats why his uniform is different from his brother.

But based on the photos here, you will see the moves of Christoph. He is just too excited to do all the tricks.. some naughty tricks! Such a funny boy!

While Francis, the serious one, the dreamer, still pose the same until the end of the photo shoot.. yes this is just one of my moment. Francis kept on complaining.. "Mommy, are you done? I am tired.. I want to rest.. I want to sleep". Blah blah blah..

Its time for their solo picture. Francis first. In seconds, you will see the usual reaction of Christoph.

This is Christoph, the jealous type, the crying baby. lol

But his mood changed immediately the moment I shouted its your turn..

Next schedule bonding with the kids - to watch Karate Kid in SM.

This is my first entry for All About Kids Tuesday while doing my usual rounds.

Parent-Teacher Orientation

School is in. Vacation is out. Mixed emotions. Francis is excited while Christoph prefers to stay at home.

Today is the school orientation so during lunch break, we picked up the kids at home and ate with them at Jollibee - yes, with kids theres only 2 choices: Jollibee or Mcdo.

Afterwhich, we headed to their school but before entering, Mommytographer has to do something. I must take a photo for our family blog.

My boys happily pose at the entrance of the school.

This is the Preschool Building. At the moment, the boys stay here. Francis is in Sr Prep while Christoph in Jr Prep.

At the back of the Preschool Building housed the Elementary and High School Level. In between these buildings are their playground / basketball court.

Mint Green Room - the classroom for Francis, located at the 2nd level while Christoph is in the Blue Room at the Ground Floor. When you say mint green,it means the tables, chairs, placemats are all in mint green color = color coding! Nice. Neat.

The maximum students per room is 20 students with 2 teachers. At the moment, Christoph has 11 classmates. I forgot to ask the other one.

How about you? Are you all set up and ready for school too? For us, not yet, I still have to cover all the books and notebooks this weekend.

Hey, before I forget, today is Friday and its time to meet new blogger friends. Join us for

My Mini Me

My 1.5 year old Alexa is fond of using my shoes and sandals. At an early stage, I can already foresee that she will grow up like me who is crazy for shoes and bags. I love to collect these stuff like most woman do.



While I was busy in the room, I suddenly saw her wearing my cinderella sandals.

This is my post for My World Tuesday and Wordless Wednesday.
