Kate @16 with her Homemade Red Velvet Cupcake

No filter here… a photo of me and the April 7 girl who just rose from bed, sporting her homemade red velvet cupcake made by the doting mom (yours truly) especially for her on her 16th birthday.

It was my first time to cook and bake for an occasion and I just love that it’s summer. It was really my plan to prepare a lunch meal for the family since we planned to leave after for the city to give way for her another birthday request – a day with the wilds and critters in a park.

These red velvet cupcakes were especially requested by her. She just love it and can’t seem to get enough of it.

Another request that this young lady have had  was to spend part of her birthday with the crocs and critters at the Crocodile Park in Davao City. To me it is rather weird. She could have wished for an electric bass guitar at guitarcenter.com since she intended to enroll in a music lesson this summer… but a wish is a wish… what can I say.

Congratulations to Our Dear Graduate this Year

It is our choices that show what we truly are far more than our abilities ~ Albus Dumbledore

It is graduation and recognition month once again. It is when parents, guardians, friends, teachers and administrators gather in one setting to celebrate achievements of learners. This year, I do not only join the graduates as the member of a school faculty but as a proud “tita” (aunt) of one of the graduates of the S.Y. 2016-2017 as well.

My lovely niece, Jam with her mom and younger brother…these guys were just the proudest.

She just graduated in elementary and will soon embrace the high school life. It’ll be a totally different thing with new experiences and challenges. How she is going to spend it is entirely up to her. For now as her family, all we wanted her to do is to simply enjoy and feel the summer heat along with her cousins and friends. She deserves a break like everybody does.

Teen Mom’s Kailyn Lowry Is Pregnant

Get ready for baby number three! Teen Mom star Kailyn Lowry is pregnant with baby number three. The news was confirmed by Kailyn on her blog on Friday, February 24, after tabloids had been reporting that it was suspected that she was pregnant. Kailyn is already mom to Issac, 7, with ex Jo Rivera, and Lincoln, 3, with her ex-husband Javi Marroquin. “I am pregnant”, the 24 year old posted on her website Friday morning. “I’m sad that I should have known that people in my life would sell me out before I was ready.” she continued.

Apparently knowing that she would be bombarded with questions from Teen Mom fans, Kailyn explained a little more about her situation and answered the questions that she knew would be on everyone’s minds. “Jo has been aware of things for awhile now. He was one of the first to know because we can have adult conversations about things while he respectfully gives his opinions”. She revealed. However, when it comes to Javi, Kailyn revealed that she “never got to have a conversation” with Javi about the pregnancy. This leaves Teen Mom fans reeling, wondering who the father of Kailyn’s new baby could possibly be. On the subject of whether she is having a boy or a girl, Lowry shared that while she is halfway through her pregnancy, she has decided to wait until summer to find out the baby’s gender.
