The Miracle of Wires

Patch got wired during the summer of 2008.

Back then, she had “very few” teeth, because the dentist had to do series extraction. She pulled out the temporary teeth to make room for the permanent ones. The dentist had to resort to series extractions because Patch has small facial bones. Her jaw and mandibles were too small, limiting the space for her teeth. If she did not get braces, she will get crowded teeth (like I do).

Thankfully, her permanent teeth grew out in time, with the help of the wires. Before we knew it, she had a complete set of teeth (except for the third molars). So, fast forward to today, here are her new set of choppers –

Hopefully, the wires come off in summer of 2010.

But guess who will be needing wires real soon?

I am just glad we have a great family orthodontist. So there won’t be any need for a Plano cosmetic dentist in the future, I need to start working with the her on the next client. Who’s the next client?

V’s Making a List…

And checking it twice…


four times…

One afternoon, as soon as we arrived at home from school, V got one of her old notebooks and began scribbling some stuff. I really wasn’t paying attention.

All through the evening, she kept going back to her scribbles. I got curious, of course. So nosy iMom decided to check it out…

This is my 8-year old daughter’s attempt at time management and organization. Not bad eh? Take note: “Aral for tests tomorrow.” Also: under “study list”, all boxes are ticked. *proud mama moment* 😀

Two Birthdays In A Row and A Granted Wish

VGood’s and MagNate’s birthdays are only a week apart. In the past two years, we’ve been celebrating the double birthdays with out-of-town trips. Incidentally, both were at Subic (well yes, it’s one of our fave places).

This year, due to time and budget constraints, their birthdays were celebrated simply with the ceremonial birthday candle blowing and a family dinner.

Nate turned 3, while V is now 8.

Thanks to the gift certificates that I won from a blog-writing contest by Red Ribbon, I was able to save on the two kids’ cakes! Yay!

We loved Nate’s animal-designed cake. BUT- next time I’m only ordering white-icing cakes. No more food-colored icings. Why, you ask? Continue reading Two Birthdays In A Row and A Granted Wish

Blogging Your Way To Weight Loss???

This is the pointed question that I got from VGood this afternoon – 

V: Mom, are you really blogging your way to weight loss??? (with dramatic emphasis on “weight  loss”)

iMom: Yes, I think so. Why?

V (quietly, but with conviction): Liar.

iMom (almost furious): Huh?? What did you say??!??

V: How can you be losing weight when you’re sitting all day in front of the computer??

Uhhm. That makes sense. Thanks for the reminder, VGood (who, along with her cohorts, sometimes refers to me as the Computer Addict.)

(Warning: Segue ahead.)

The remark was brought on by the title of the article on Women’s Health-Philippines Magazine featuring moi Blogging Her Way to Weight Loss. V does not concur. hahaha 😀

What is Emo?

“What is emo?”

This question was posed by my 7-year old daughter VGood to a classmate.

Classmate answered V’s question with a drawing – 

“Emo girl/boy that always wear[s] black dress and makeup and like a punk or always drunk.”

I cracked up when I saw this yesterday while fixing V’s school bag. Kids come up with the most hilarious ideas. I think, though, that the classmate confused ’emo’ with ‘goth’. 😛 Continue reading What is Emo?
