birthday wishes

i have to admit that there are some birthday wishes that did not come true. but. people, especially my students did their best to make this day special. and i cant tell you how happy you made me. i thought people forgot me due to late texts and calls. but it aint over till the fat lady sings. hahaha. people eventually called, texted and messaged me online, especially email, friendster and most of all, facebook. each and everyone of you, thank you for going out of your way to make me feel happy and special. especially you students. i love teaching you. its almost not a job anymore but its almost a game that i would like to keep on playing. though you drive me insane often enough, you students, are my sanity. its an honor to teach you. there is something very satisfying when i see you learn and love art through my guidannce. thank you so much. again, see you in class.

    hahahah… lobos lubusin ang pagcocomment!!!!!
    In behalf of BS Chem 111,, we would like to dedicate this poem to Ma’am placino!
    TO A LADY, ON HER BIRTHDAY
    Lady, I wish thee happiness
    On this thy natal day;
    May peace and calm serenity
    Forever with thee stay.
    I’ll ask old Time as he steals past,
    Relentless though he be,
    To touch thee lightly, and to deal
    Most tenderly with thee.
    I’ll ask the days as they go on
    To their eternal rest,
    To leave behind them, just for thee,
    Those things you love the best.
    I’ll ask the hours, as they trip by,
    If any gift there be
    Among their treasures that is choice,
    To leave that gift for thee.
    And if there be a secret wish
    Close hidden in thy breast,
    I’ll ask to have that wish fulfilled,
    And given with the rest.
    May flowers of grace, and blooms of love
    From amaranthine bowers,
    Be culled for thee, and on thee fall
    In soft ambrosial showers.
    Now may that peace which passeth all
    We here can comprehend,
    Be with thee, and remain with thee,
    When all birthdays shall end.

    On the Mood to write:

    Birthday is not at all wishing for some things..
    It is meant to remember God’s given grace in the past years of our life
    We may not be as wealthy and as gorgeous as other maybe
    but Love do surrounds us, you’ll see

    ahahah,, wala lang poh yan ma’am hahhaha, nagpapaka emo!!
    ingat poh parati!

    proud top be chem,
    mary Rose

    @maryrose wow. as in WOW. im so touched. thanks chem students. i cant find the proper words right now. but i am so touched. thank you so much. it is students who care and students who love learning who makes teaching worthwhile.

    and yes, i know, there are a lot of worderful things in this life, and we should just focus on that. the hardest things are actually to accept that you cant have even the simplest things, those that doesn’t cost anything, but is actually worth a lot.

    and my whole name is actually maria portia olenka cabuyao placino

    @djoaniel thanks for the birthday greeting. thanks for remembering. and… well… chill… they’re kids, some, very new to blogging. to some of the kids who read djoaniel’s comment, ayun, so proper words daw. be sensitive. chill na djoaniel ha 🙂

Little one really loves her broccoli! So funny! She loves her fruits and vegetables snacks. If you want to try this, better be prepared, coz she likes feeding us whatever it is that she's eating. So no cringing! We actually like broccolli so its fine when she wants us to take a bite. We keep a big bag of frozen broccoli so we just steam some for her if we're out of ideas for food. Toddlers can be sooo challenging, but they do have their adorable moments. #babyfood #babynarratives
Cheesy tomato pasta. Yum! We've been feeding little one pasta and she loves it! So happy, we get to mostly eat a lot of the same things. And we're so proud when she habitually rejects the kiddie spaghetti that's usually available for parties. I really do not like the kiddie spaghetti version with canned tomato sauce and hotdogs. Just no. So we just keep on feeding her the different pasta dishes we do like and hope for the best. #babyfood #babynarratives
Little one did not like the lemon snaps at all. More for me! Lol. So far, this is the only cookie that works for her, very subtle flavor. Also works to pacify her when you ate her leftover pasta coz you think she was done, then she comes back looking for her pasta. Uh-oh. #babyfood #babynarratives
Walking with the not so little one. Summer is sooo not our friend. But we try to go out and be cool about it. #babynarratives
Taste testing cookies and biscuits that I can let the little one eat with her whole milk. This one is ok, though might still be a tad sweet. The Cadia vanilla wafers are better and not too sweet, but pricier. Any suggestions for toddler treats and/or emergency munchies? #babyfood #babynarratives
Today is the last day of Leia's Infant Development Program. What a year it has been. We are so thankful to have this community, this family, in the first year of Leia's life. They've been there with us in the rollercoaster of infancy. Leia blossomed in the program as she got used to other people and other babies. So young and already so many friends. This was our village for the past year and I am more grateful than I could ever express. Our babies are now toddlers are we are just so proud of their journey. We will see you all again soon, we feel so lucky to have this love and support. #babyschool #babynarratives
