Letters from the past

It’s not my birthday, not even Mother’s Day but I’m posting these letters from my kids when they were so much younger. I think I have posted these letters nine years ago this month. Reading them again made be feel happy and sad. Happy because I felt loved by my children. Even if they were young they were able to express their thoughts in writing. I also feel sad because I no longer receive similar letters from them. But I know both of them still love me just the same.

The last letters were from hubby and another one from my daughter on her graduation day. I think I have posted both letters separately on this blog.

Throwback Thursday: Celebrating My Son’s 18th Birthday!

One of the few treasured family pictures that we had when the kids were little.

It’s my son’s birthday today and this is his cutest picture to date. Just kidding, K. I’ll always love and care for you even if you’re hard headed at times.

You were about 10 or 11 months in this photo. Ate was about 3. Look Dad, ang bata mo tingnan dito and so am I. 😀

Happy birthday, anak ko! May all your wishes and dreams come true!

Teaching kids to save money by starting with small amount

I’ve been telling my kids the importance of saving money using any amount left of their daily school allowance. Since they are kids it’s a hit and miss saving project with them. I remember this money challenge initiated by fellow mommy bloggers at the start of the year. They have been posting this money challenge table on Facebook. I was able to download and saved them for future use. Image credit to Mommy Levy. I think now is the time to introduce this money challenge table to my grown up kids starting with 10 pesos per day. (I think I’m missing the other half of the table 🙁 )
