Mikka's Favorite Books

You can tell right away by looking at the books' condition if the kiddo likes it or not - if it's all beaten (and bitten) up that it almost look like it's not going to withstand another flip, then yeah, it's one of her most favorite books to "read" and play at.

Good thing that she outgrew this biting thing about 3 weeks ago since she started daycare. Now, she still flips through different books however, these are the ones she would choose and would "ask" me or her dad to read to her.  By her asking I meant, she'd be taking the book  and give it to either me or her dad and would automatically sit on my lap or her dad's. Reading once is not enough though, we had to read about 3 times. I dunno what's up with these books but apparently, she likes them so far at this stage.

I thought I want to share this as I really think it's interesting to see her transition from just biting and flipping books to actually showing interest into listening and reading them. Amazing these kids these days!!!

Leslie Patricelli's "The Birthday Box" never fails to make my Mikka giggle everytime :o)

You Know You're A Mom When...

... while debugging your program at work you find yourself singing "sarasponda sarasponda sarasponda retsetset... sarasponda sarasponda sarasponda retsetset..." at the back of your mind... oh maaan....

Break-up Song

Two people close to my heart parted ways not too long ago and to say I hurt for them is definitely an understatement.

I wish I could do something to help fix things. I wish I was physically by their side when it wasn't too late to fix things but I was thousands of miles away.

It's really really sad to hear about break-ups in general but this felt 100 times worse as I have a very personal relationship with these kids. Sucks. There's no 3rd party issue here so it's just harder to comprehend what went wrong. It's easier if there were some 3rd party involved though, as irritating as it would but the situation would have called for an easier exit route to take.

I know in my heart both of them still love each other, just that I didn't understand why they let their respective pride to get in the way. I know for sure the guy still loves the girl - he cries everytime we talk about her. He was the one who let go of her and I really want to whack his head for doing so. It's the last thing he wanted to have happened because he really loved her just that both of them got too tired to keep on "fixing" their relationship. I know the girl still cares for the guy, just that I think she already moved on with her life and she no longer expects for them to get back together. I completely understand her as I'd probably do exactly the same thing if I were in her shoes.

Sigh.

Recently my favorite band in the whole wide world just released a new album (Lifehouse's Smoke and Mirrors, please don't forget to grab a copy of their album if you like their music you're not gonna be disappointed by this one) and of course, I got a copy of the CD as soon as it hit the stores. As I listened to the songs, I grew a special liking to this particular song entitled "It is what it is". I didn't pay that much attention to the lyrics however, I really liked the beat and all, so I have it repeated in my playlist at least 5x.

Only until this weekend that I get to digest the lyrics of the song itself and it hit me so hard that I kept on thinking about these kids everytime I hear this song - breaks my heart.

I wish both of them would read my blog and realize that they should get back together and fix things. I ache for them and I know they both are hurting. Just please, get back with each other already because we are all hurting here, come on guys!!! We both love you and we're the ones who can't move on, ok?



I was only looking for a shortcut home
But it’s complicated
So complicated
Somewhere in this city is a road I know
Where we could make it
But maybe there’s no making it now
Too long we’ve been denying
Now we’re both tired of trying
We hit a wall and we can’t get over it
Nothing to relive
It’s water under the bridge
You said it, I get it
I guess it is what it is

I was only trying to bury the pain
But I made you cry and I can’t stop the crying
Was only trying to save me
But I lost you again
Now there’s only lying
Wish I could say it’s only me

Too long we’ve been denying
Now we’re both tired of trying
We hit a wall and we can’t get over it
Nothing to relive
It’s water under the bridge
You said it, I get it
I guess it is what it is

Here it comes ready or not
We both found out it’s not how we thought
That it would be, how it would be
If the time could turn us around
What once was lost may be found
For you and me, for you and me

Too long we’ve been denying
Now we’re both tired of trying
We hit a wall and we can’t get over it
Nothing to relive
It’s water under the bridge
You said it, I get it
I guess it is what it is

I was only looking for a shortcut home
But it’s complicated
So complicated
