picky eater

28 April 2009

When my son was still a baby, he doesn't complain what i feed him. He just gobble everything up, no wonder his face was way bigger than mine at that time. He developed carotenemia (yellowing of the skin) though because I always include squash to his everyday meal. Good thing he didn't turn green when I added more green leafy veggies to his diet.

But my son at 7.11 years old is a very picky eater. One day he likes a particular meal and requests it for a week or so, then he'll just surprise me by saying that what i cooked is not yummy. Whattt?? You requested it for a week and I followed the recipe instruction up to the last detail... and oh yes, it does taste the same everytime I cook it (I always taste it before serving it to you) -- now its not yummy anymore? Whatever happened to "this tastes good mama" or "you're a good cook mama".

Good thing that there are a lot of cooking shows (they have websites also) where mommies like me can get ideas to add to our already huge collection of picky-eater-friendly recipes. One such cooking show is quickfire, shown in Qtv. Its like 30-minutes by rachel ray but Chef Rosebud promises recipes that are "done in less than 10 minutes". Tried some of her recipes already and liked it because its not hard to follow. I do not use ajinomoto though, sorry. Hopefully she will add more recipes that will help moms prepare different kinds of meals to their family.

What is a Boy?

20 April 2009

Author: Unknown
He's an imp and an angel,
a dreamer, a tease
An explorer of meadows, and
a climber of trees.
A runner of errands, and
doer of chores.
Who tears his best trousers, and
tracks up your floors.
He's a solemn young man with
some mud on his feet,
And a daredevil riding his
bike down the street.
A bundle of questions, who
wants to know "why",
The world goes around and 
the stars fill the sky.
But adventurous, timid, excited
or quiet,
There's nothing so new that he 
won't care to try it.
And just when your temper and
patience wear thin,
He'll look up at you with an
innocent grin.
And your heart melts again with
your real pride and joy,
In that mischievous, wonderful
treasure--- your boy!!

who is rj?

19 April 2009


Hi friends! Let me introduce my son RJ to all of you.

My son RJ just turned 8 years old this 22nd of June. He is just a few inches shorter than me . It is very probable that he'll be as tall as me already in about a year or two.

My son may be growing up so fast, but he will always be my baby --- my little boy --- MY BABY RJ.

My son RJ, just like a regular grade schooler has lots of favorites. One of the things we have in common is collecting and reading books. He can stay in a bookstore and browsing books for hours and hours without telling me that he's bored already.

He told me when he was just in preschool that he is going to put up a bookstore business when he grows up. He already made borrowers cards as well as detailed instructions on rules in his bookstore.

He is a big fan of K-Zone Magazine also.

His lego collection is one of his favorites. He builds houses, cars, animals with his legos.

He also loves drawing, cutting and building different things with cereal boxes that we collect.

He is a very creative boy.

RJ is into sports also.

He is a member of his school's swimming varsity. He trains with his coach everyday after school.

He loves running also. He already joined marathon's and plans to join more this year.

He is into basketball, golf and soccer also.

He also loves to draw and paint also.

You can see in his drawings and paintings his creativity. He doesn't have any formal training, yet he draw and paint really well. We have been planning to enroll in a painting and drawing classes together, maybe next summer vacation we can do it already.

He also loves composing songs (and poems), loves playing chess, is very addicted to cousin toto's psp (nope-doesn't have his own).

He wants to be a paleontologist, architect, businessman, farmer (at 2 years old), jeepney driver and bus conductor (when he was 3) when he grows up.

Don't forget to always visit here. Read my posts to get to know more about my not-so-little-boy-anymore rj.
