Now Showing: The adventures of school girl Zoe - A prelude

We were late for the first day of summer class. Bummer. So my little girl had to be seated all the way at the back of the classroom which was her big challenge. She was listening intently, so focused, observing things around her. I was a little distant from where she was seated but she wasn't restless even if I wasn't beside her so I knew she could be left alone. *Sigh* Now I am beginning to be sentimental blogging about our daughter's first school experience.

She stood in front of the class to be introduced. Stood up and went to the teacher without hesitation. There were singing and dancing but she didn't do much of those, merely watching. (She practiced the steps when she got home though so I guess she was watching and memorizing the steps) She was so excited when it was time to color and did the task quietly.

In a nutshell, today's first day was indeed a success! Tomorrow, parents and guardians are no longer allowed inside the room so go ahead and wish us luck!

Got surprised!

I was still asleep when I heard voices greeting me. I was thinking "where is this coming from?" It sounded like my family but it was like coming from somewhere.

Mr Bear and my best mom tumbler!

When I finally succumbed to open my eyes and see what was going on, this bear and coffee tumbler beside me together with a video that hubby and the kids made. Both the video and the gifts were declaring I am the world's best mom! I wouldn't even dare to disagree. Coming from these three who defined my motherhood, I am blessed to have been a mom!

So with that I send our shoutout to all the mothers out there, continue being the best kind of mom your family knows you to be! We are blessed to be given this role! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY indeed!

How zoon can you get to the newest play place?

Zye as Jack Frost
Zoe as Boo

October 31 was the most awaited day of our kiddos as it was our family day in the office with the company's trick or treat activity. To get their attention off the candies (as they might think the goal is to finish it all within the day) I brought them to Robinson's Galleria after my shift to go to this cool play place that I have heard of.

4th level Robinson's Galleria

Located at the 4th level of the mall between City buffet and Pizza hut, Kidzoona offers a different kind of play place for the kids. As they are on soft opening, the play rates are at P1.00/hr. To allow more kids to experience the fun, they are limiting it to an hour only, assigning batches on an hourly basis. Only 1 guardian per kid is allowed as the area is getting crowded with adults instead of kids. We came at around 4:30pm and pre-registered. We got the 6-7pm slot which was good as we had time to get snacks first.

We lined up at the entrance area around quarter to 6pm and we were already given our locker keys while we were waiting. The 5-6pm batch were made to vacate the area and the next batch were allowed to enter by 5s.

As soon as Zye and Zoe removed their shoes, they ran off -- literally! It wasn't really hard to find them as the area was sectioned accordingly. We started with the area of creating things and music. It had blocks, musical instruments, trains. It allows the kids to see and observe how things happen

Two scoops please?

After a few minutes we were off to the area where role playing is the main goal. It allows the kids to experience first hand how grown up jobs and responsibilities are done. From experiencing how to buy fruits and vegetables in the market, to baking and preparing sushi, even the adults will have fun. The kids can also role play being a fire fighter, mailman, doctor. Indeed imagination has no limits here.

Our last stop was the area of physical play. Mats were all around and kids can just go and jump whenever they feel like doing it. Adults who get tired meanwhile have a lounge area. They have free water in the area though they do not have their own washroom.

It was a great experience and I think this is much better than an hour in the arcade. I can't wait for the grand launch as theu promise more equipment and play concept. Happy day indeed!
