Just a quick one

Tomorrow is my son's Christmas program in school and I am keeping my fingers crossed. I am hoping that this time, he will actually do something more than just stand on stage and stare at the crowd. Oh I don't berate him or anything. I know it can be quite overwhelming for a child to stand and face an audience of beaming parents. But tomorrow, I am really hopeful. He's got a lot of roles to play. They have a short skit which is like the night before Christmas (and he has lines!). Then a song and dance number. And then another class is borrowing him to play Joseph in their skit. And tonight he seems relaxed about everything. So hope with me, ok?

This is going to be a quick one, I wanted to write about something else but I got distracted by what I read in one of the blogs I consider a favorite. Plus, I stayed up till midnight last night wrapping gifts and was up by 5am for a 7am meeting, AND I STILL HAVE A COUGH. Aaargggh!

And oh, in case you're interested, head on over to the Book Bitches blog (just click on their link on the right) and see the new Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie trailer. It is awesome!

Hokay, gotta go. My two year old daughter is playing with a certain part of my anatomy while I am typing. I gotta nip this in the bud.

Hay naku. You're as much of a loony stage mother as I am, Mench! ;p

I hope Jun can pass by our condo next week to pick up the Christmas gift for my pretty goddaughter Faith. Just text me. =)

Mench!!! Congratulations to you and Joshua! Do you have a video? Are you going to put it up on you tube? What? Oh you’re not that kind of momma – oh good! really? Hehe!

I hope that everyone is doing well – no coughs, no colds – and ready for Christmas! The gifts would have to come later, when I go home (or you can collect from Mat – LOL!)

Anyways, I’m done with my book list… You’re right you do have to give it some thought before you put it up. I didn’t know I liked so many books…

Maria said...

Merry Christmas!

hi menchie, i haven't been able to comment on your blog so i tried sending you and your son some good energy for his performance. i had no doubt he would do his best, which is always good enough...

happy holidays to you all. btw, if you make any plans to eat chocolate with ces, please include me. i will buy my plane ticket as soon as i am guaranteed the chocolates will be there....

:)

Princess,
Yeah he did great! I wanted to post about it already but I haven't uploaded the pictures yet. :D

Juliet & Samson,
I was soooo proud of him! And yup! Your tag is fun -- will get on it right away.

Maria,
So far, so good. Patapos na ang mga cold and cough (even mine). I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll make it to New Year's Day without any relapses. ooooh! Another tag! I love doing those! Will get on it right away. I'm gonna see Mat pala this Friday. We're getting together at Melay's place for dinner -- Lara, Mat, Maroy and myself. I will finally get to see Melay's daughter in the flesh. Wish you were here...

Kj,
Thank you for sending the good energy -- he did so well and he was so proud of himself. And we'll definitely let you know if Ces has decided to continue her chocolate binge. That would be so fun, let's invite Maria too!
