Music is as important as the air we breath. This is why it is very important for kids to be exposed to music at a young age. Ages 1 to 3 is the best time you should introduce your child to music.
Exposing your child to simple music is not hard. Sharing with him or her a simple song that encourage simple hand movement will sure bring a smile to your child’s lips. Maybe you haven’t realized it yet, but your lap as a parent is the best instrument to play music with.
Believe it or not, but your child greatly appreciates music by their parents out of a simple tapping and simple music sung by parents, this is true even if parents can’t carry a tune that well.
By the way, Mel Bay Books is one of the great books you can find that teaches great songs and music to children. I can truly attest to that because I have proven it with my 4-year old kid.

Many times I have mentioned in this blog that my Gab loves music so much. He likes Tagalog songs that are most of the time aired over the local radio. (That’s because we don’t have so much access to internationally played songs that are most of the time played on MTVs.)
Gayuma is his new favorite one and he loves to watch its MTV from Rey’s mobile phone. Not only the song that caught his attention, he now begins to ask about the instruments used by singers to perform the song. To add more to it, he begins to like the way these singers way of choosing clothes to wear. I need to make sure he’ll get complete guidance from me when it comes to choosing his get-up.
Every time I am on my computer and working, my son would wait for my break time and request that I help me to check on snare drum from musicians friend. Given enough time to save for it, I will surely get him one and make sure he loves to play it.

We missed spending time with family and relatives last year. Gab and I isolated ourselves at home with less going out since I did not have work and less budget. It’s only since I started working for my new company a couple of months ago we were able to visit family and relatives both from Rey and my side.
Our long trip from the province going back home to Cavite gave us an opportunity to have pictures taken along the roads of Quezon province while having our stomach refills, rest for our careful driver (that’s Lolo Ger) and stretching our knees. It’s an eight-hour road trip which Lolo Ger makes for only more than six hours and never more than seven less traffic.

Our usual family bonding and routine every weekend is to pay a visit to Rey’s office after a good stroll at the mall. Since Rey is now with the Sapphire Bloc construction group, Robinson’s Galleria is our choice every Saturday. Megamall is too far from the construction site and Gab will always complain walking from the mall to Rey’s office.
Gab is still in his hyper mode when we get to the office and I was able to convince him to try on his father’s hard had and reflectorized jacket. He was happy to walk around the office and show off his costume to his father’s co-engineer.
I am sure he will be able to pull it off as an officer when he grows up. I suddenly thought that he will be able to have a good management style in case we buy auto lifts in the future and he will be able to manage it for the family. Don’t you think I am too wishful to think about it for now.

Yes, my dear friends and family! Gab’s birthday get away at Watercamp Resort (as if the place was so far far far away kung makagetaway lang!) was successful. Gab and his cousins (Yma, Matthew and Leila) were all so happy and tired at the end of the day. Swimming, running, climbing are what made them busy all day.
Forgive me for not being able to take any pictures of the family activity. I know it is something that is hard to forgive but sadly no one was able to hold a camera since we are all busy. Maybe I should say that the old me who used to take all the pictures from every angle of any family activity were all gone. Or it could only be just because I don’t have a decent phone to use to take the camera.
We’ll I guess both fact are true, not having a decent camera to use to take pictures makes me lousy about taking pictures. To add more, taking care of the kids does not allow me to hold my camera at all times.

Bubbles Laundry will beat the summer on Gab’s 4th birthday.
My staff and crew (which is composed of myself, alvin, bong and ricky) are all excited to beat the summer this coming weekend back-to-back with Gab’s birthday celebration with the whole family.
We were orignally planning to visit Water Fun in Sucat but we were saddened to know that the place was turned to a dumpsite (thanks to Google for this wonderful news!) I was forced to look for an alternative resort and opted to search for a nearby place in Cavite. We are from Cavite but we haven’t explore Cavite that much.
Water Camp Resort in Cavite is a very nice place to look at from Google’s point of view. We will try and check this out this coming weekend to see it for ourselves. I will sure get back to you and share our experience be it nice or not so nice. Of course, we are all hopeful that it will be a nice one.
