My friend captioned one of our photos from The Dessert Museum with a fitting U2 song (care to take a guess?), which in turn made me remember this Iggy Pop song. Oh, when rockers get mushy. Make it this post’s theme song, too! The Dessert Museum opened last February 2018. It’s comprised of 8 theme … More Peeling the wrapper off The Dessert Museum
(Updated) My daughter had a classmate that practiced gymnastics. For a petite girl, she was agile, and could do backbends already (the yogi in me cried inside a little). She’s also around 4 years old. Personally I’m not very familiar with gymnastics and don’t know a lot of kids who practice the sport, or grownups … More Summer gymnastics
I’m all for indoor play areas for children, but if there’s one thing that can make me not want to try a place out is a ridiculously high entrance fee. We have tried a lot of places, they all tend to be the same, so it’s a bit of a hard sell for me to … More Hello, Kidzania!
At 4 years old, Akira still finds the mall’s indoor playgrounds a happy place. It still excites her when she spots one, she still has a great time in one, and really, if your family is the type that’s in a mall at least once a week, then it pays to make the indoor playground … More Yes, we still do indoor playgrounds
Swimming! A popular summer activity that’s also a fun activity during the nippy-sometimes-stormy -ber months (very Filipino reference for months that end with ‘ber’), who would’ve thought. J has been bugging me about swimming lessons for Akira, and it took me a while to pursue any leads since it wasn’t exactly the right season for it. It took … More Toddler swimming lessons
You don’t need to convince me that play is an important part of childhood, and that it’s integral to a child’s proper growth and development. I’m all for play and more physical activity, especially these days when it seems that children are becoming less and less active. I understand families these days have limited options … More What’s a play class like? Our ClubBambino experience
Akira is a very active kid. I remember when she was about 8 months old, she already insisted on walking with assistance (somebody stands behind her and holds her hands). We’d do these drills all over the house, outside the house, up and down steps, and I tried my best to stop only when she … More 5 indoor areas for kids that are built for play
The husband and I have both pegged 3 years old as a good time for Akira to start going to school. Granted, of course, that school assessments also agree that she is ready. She’ll be turning 3 this April, so I’ve dedicated January for researching and calling up some schools that we like, as well … More Today is brought to you by ClubBambino and Nutella
