Super behave Keona

I have been busy lately. Aside from hosting a seminar in our work, Mom was hospitalized because she had a bad fall from our roof gutter to the ground. And Keona was surpisingly behaving at the time when neighbors went home to help Mom and when rescuers from 911 went home. She understands that Mom was in pain. She would even caress and touch Mom's arms that has many bruises. I'm really happy and kinda surprise of the behavior that Keona's is showing lately. She's becoming mature and she understands what's going on with the people around her.

HPS#3 - Working date with hubby

It's a beautiful Sunday. Hubby and me have long planned in going to our own house in Mintal to do some cleaning. With Keona's surgical operation, firing and hiring of babysitter and juggling work, we have not visited there for a long time now. There's a thick cloud in the sky outside which is a hint of a coming rain but Mom said it's gonna be in the late afternoon. We don't go there if there's a rain because we do weeding out of grass outside. Then hubby remembered that it's Manny Pacquiao's boxing fight and he had second thoughts of going to Mintal. But Mom said we can still see it because we have TV there anyways. Though it's a little delayed for it's not pay-per -view. So we push through with our plan of going to our house. We arrived there at around 11:00 o'clock in the morning. We just ordered beef soup and rice at Garrido's for our lunch.

There's a piece of paper at the fence and when I look at it, it's a water bill. Not that big because nobody lives in there so I won't pay it yet. I miss our house. It was not as dirty and as grassy as I have expected because there's not much rain for the past months. But a little more dusty inside and I notice a lot of cobwebs. I started pulling off the grasses in front, while hubby worked on the left side. When I was about half finished of the area, the rain poured down so we had to stop. While working outside the house, we were monitoring the boxing fights. We continued our work when the rain stopped and while the under cards are the ones playing. When the main event started, we stopped doing our work which was almost finished by that time and we were glued on the TV until it was finished. Nice fight. We went back home at around 5:00 in the afternoon to catch up Keona's antibiotic schedule which was 6:30 in the evening.

It's Payday

Yeheeyyy! It's payday today. Time to pay the bills and do some groceries. Due to the high prices of commodities these days, I see to it that I have a list on what I have to buy whenever I go to the mall. I only buy what I needed and just save on for the things that I want but not really my priorities. What's on my list? Here it is...

  • Nan HW 3 milk for Keona
  • Cetaphil Shampoo - for Keona
  • Bath Soap - any brand with a low price as long as it smells good.hehe
  • Biscuits - for Keona, me and hubby. We used to buy junk foods but when me and hubby heard (from Keona's nephrologist - kidney disease specialist) about how pricey it is to have a kidney transplant, we told each other to really take care of our "filters". So no more junkfoods and too salty foods.
  • Shampoo - hubby wants Gard because of some flakes.
  • Pork - ribs and tenderloin, veggies, spices, condiments
  • Fruits
  • Aqua soft solution - for my contact lens

Effect of Early Spanking

Keona has been growing really fast. She is a fast learner. You teach her today, keep repeating it...and she'll never forget it anymore. She is also becoming very curious. She would want to touch anything that interests her.

There are times when hubby raises his voice because Keona sometimes doesn't follow a simple "No". And I reminded hubby that he should not spank our baby or raise his voice when disciplining our child. I remember in my child psychology subject way back in college that the most important thing is to let the child understand why he is being spanked. If she doesn't understand, she'll develop hatred towards people who spanked her.

In an article that i have read in a newspaper, a research shows that children who are spanked as 1-year olds are more likely to behave aggressively and perform worse on cognitive tests as toddlers than children who are spared the punishment. Though the negative effects of spanking were "modest", the study adds the growing body of literature that spanking is not good for chldren.

Age 1 is key time for establishing the quality of the parenting and the relationship between parent and child according to a research scientist. Spanking at age 1 reflects a negative dynamic and increase children's aggression at age two.
