Our princess dog in the Philippines gave birth almost the same day Kate Middleton gave birth to her royal son! We were so excited for the photos but my sister was not able to post them until the other day.

Drink up! Mom has unlimited milk supply!
My sister also told us that our cow also gave birth, and my father named the calf George. So, I won't be surprised if they are going to name these puppies Kate and Diana. After all, they're royals, aren't they?
As early as now we have been talking with our kids on what degree they would choose when they will be in the university. It's a bit too early, I know but it's good for them to know the choices they will have and what degree they think would fit them. It's also good to be prepared, even if it means that it's still a couple of years away.
Ria has always been musically inclined and have been very keen in learning different musical instruments, so she is actually considering taking up a music degree. I think she would not have a hard time because she can already read notes. She can already play the violin well, but I don't know how she would fare with bass bridges. The instrument looks a lot more complicated than violin.
As for Roi, he always says he wants to be a Pastor-Engineer. I don't know what's his answer will be a few years from now, but that has always been his answer for the last 3 years. One thing we know, as parents, it's always best to support our kids in whatever degree they choose. After all, it's their passion, not ours.
I was searching for good family movies on youtube and came across "Chrissa Stands Strong." When we saw that it was an HBO movie and looked like it was wholesome enough for the kids, we went ahead and watched the whole movie.
It turned out that the film was about a girl named Chrissa who was new in her school. She experienced being bullied from the very first day, and has seen with her eyes how another girl was bullied. Not wanting to be called a tattle teller, so she just stayed mum about it and struggled by herself.
Towards the end, she had the courage to tell her parents and even stood up to make bullying their class project. To make the ending even happier, she was able to be friends with her bully, Tarra. They were both in the same swimming team and together and were their team's best swimmers. They did not end up to be the best of friends, but they sure made their team win, and made bullying stop.
The movie was heartwarming and should be watched by families. If there has to be a moral lesson of the story, it's never to keep bullying a secret. When you come out in the open, think of it as not just protecting yourself but others who might be silent victims as well.
