New watch from my brother

I am a spoiled sister.  Every time I asked something for my brother, he always gives it to me.  It will take weeks to months though, but I have enough patience to wait for it.  But I am consistently bugging him of my request.  That is me and my brothers and sister know it.  Two months ago, I went to visit my older brother and his wife.  I saw his new watch hanging on the wall.  The watch is nice and I asked my brother to give it to me.  I felt sad when he said no.  But happy afterward because he said he will buy me a new one.

I am patiently waiting for the new watch that my older brother will buy for me.  After two months the watch arrives today.  Yes, my older brother arrived today and handed to me the new watch he bought for me.  I am the happiest because at last, I have the new watch.  My old watches are not working anymore and I do not like to buy new batteries for it for the last time I bought a battery it only lasted for a month.  So, instead of buying the new battery I opted to buy the new one.  Luckily, I do not have to buy the new watch for the older brother is giving me the new watch.  Woohoo!  Thank you, brother, for the new watch.  God bless you more!

Teaching him to save money

Life is indeed not easy especially when we are experiencing difficulties in life.  We have to be ready always because we do not know what is going to happen to us the next day.  One of the good ways to be ready is to save money and do not spend beyond your means.  Saving money is one of the best things to do so when the rainy days come, we do not have to worry much because we have savings.  We do not need to borrow money because we have savings that we can use.  Though we are praying to be in good health always and safe.

The sister wants her kids to be ready always and thought them to save than to spend.  She bought piggybank for her sons and thought them to start saving at the young age.  She explains to them the importance of saving money.  It is for their future and future use.  Her eldest is only seven (7) years old and understands her explanation.  In fact, the nephew is so excited to put money in her piggy bank and he already has in mind what to buy when the piggy bank is full.  Hopefully, he will get what he wants in due time.

How about you?  How did you tell to your kids to save money?

Glad the dog has complete vaccination

One of the responsibilities as the dog owner to have the complete vaccination for their dogs.  It is like taking care of your baby.  And it is not easy to have the pet at home because of the responsibilities.  But when a friend of mine asked me if I want a dog I accepted it right away.  Because the breed of the dog is cute.  And I named him Almond.  I want to have a dog at home because some say having pets is the stress reliever.  My father did not like my idea at first but when the puppy arrives, they love it right away.  Sometimes, he plays with my dog.

My dog stays at home and sleeps in my room under my bed.  I do not allow my dog to go outside because I am scared that he will bite someone.  That is my fear the moment I accepted the puppy.  So, I told the family to keep the gate closed so the dog will not go out.  However, last Saturday, we have fiesta celebration at home and have few visitors at home.  I must let the dog go out so he won’t bother our visitors.  I just prayed my dog will be good while he is outside.  The gate is open the whole day and until dawn.  The visitors of my brother are enjoying the sing-a-long until dawn.  They are having fun when the group of teenagers are running and shouting outside the house, the dog surprised by the noise and suddenly run where the teenagers are going and unfortunately bit one of the boys.  I am so scared of what had happened, I am glad the dog has a complete vaccination, I do not have to worry much.  I am waiting for the teenager to come back the following day, but he did not.  So, I guess he is fine.  Thanks for the free vaccination offered by the city government at the center.

Downloaded Videos for the Nephew

The nephew is prohibited to use any gadgets since he started his therapy.  He lacks in communication skill because he is too much exposed to gadgets.  It is very difficult because gadgets can make him stay still at home.  When I am busy doing chores at home, I gave him the tablet so he won’t be bugging me or make a lot of mess in the room and living area.  I downloaded several games on my laptop so the nephew has more games to play at choose. Which is not good.  In a way, I am blaming myself for this because I let him play with the games in the tablet for hours.  I should have talked to him more often to develop his communication skills.

The nephew’s addiction to gadgets came back a few days ago.  He saw one of his classmates at school playing with gadgets, and suddenly he asked me about my tablet.  He always bugs me to play with my tablet but my answer is no.  Because I did not let him play with the tablet, he bugs his younger sister (10 months).  I have decided to let him play with the tablet, but I deleted the previous games and downloaded educational videos.  Videos that will help the nephew develop his communication skills and, for him familiarized with letters, numbers, colors, shapes, manners, how to count and more.  So far, he likes it.

Mask making project

I promised myself not to help the kids with doing their projects, homework, and assignments as much as possible because I want their parents to do it.  It will be a great bonding with them since their parents are both working.  They do not have much time to be with their kids and besides I am helping them since they are in grade school, now that they are in high school, it is now their time to help their kids with projects, homework, and assignments.  The niece has been asking me to help her with her project.  It is a mask making project.  I suggested making a simple one.  Think of a design that she likes.  I want her to squeeze her brain to think of a nice design.

The niece needs a mask for their classroom presentation.  A mask like in the masquerade party.  I do have the idea in mind because I have seen masquerade party in the movie but can’t decide on lively colors for the design.  To help me with the idea, I search it online.  I search for a simple mask design, with nice colors.  I do not want her to spend much for the designs or decoration that is why I want to make a simple one.  The mask is done and the niece is ready for their presentation.  I wish her the best of luck.  Indeed the technology will help us a lot in searching for ideas, ways and how’s when doing projects.
