Yaya Diaries: Riza Tepace

This is Riza Tepace. She worked as a helper in my household for a total of 23 days.  To be honest, she is nice, hardworking and cleans well.  She's smiley and is friendly.  The kids like her and Yaya B said she works well. I got her from my mother in law's mom.  Panget's Ama was the one who got her for us, there was a transportation fee of P1,500 that we needed to give to the *recruiter* because she advanced it.  When I let her into my home, we talked about rules and she needed to do around the house - such has days off and how I go about making bawas the advances we made.  She agreed and said that she really needed the work for her son (who is 1.5years old) even if her husband has been bugging her to come home - she told her husband that she was in Manila for just 2 days - how will she afford to go home?  I thought, well at least this helper knew what she needed. The next few days went by without a hitch.  Yaya B said that she was very easy to teach and she learn

School Diaries: Consequences of Incomplete Notes

Since I have two kids in big school, I think I'll start a series of their experience and my experiences as well.  I'll use the hashtag #DIDISchoolDiaries.  I just hope that I'll be able to sustain this, hopefully good stories will come out.  Hahaha!! Since school started for Kailee, things have been different.  She is already spending what is considered a whole day in school.  She brings lunch and has it in school, she doesn't come home until in the afternoon - so that means there are no afternoon naps.  She would come home energized wanting to spend time playing - but of course, there are home works.  For the first week, there was still no home works, just reminders.  You can say the first week was quite easy not as demanding.  But, I noticed every morning, she would still be quite sleepy when I wake her up.  There's a pinch in my heart every time I see her standing up waiting to be dressed (by me) with her eyes closed.  I know the feeling, I went through that fe
