Hi mommies, I just received the list of summer classes that my son's school has for this summer. I'd like to share the schedule and fees with you. I'm not sure if it is open to non-students of Divine Light Academy-Molino. I'll know on the distribution of cards this April 3.

There is an academic summer program from April 10-May 10, 2013. It is a Summer Advanced Program for incoming Prep, Grades 1-8, and High School III-IV, to develop their scientific, mathematical, reading and communication skills.


The fee is P3200. I assume this is a per subject fee, as there are subject coordinators in the letter, but not sure pa din ha. I will update this post.

Apart from DLA, I know there are summer classes in Perpetual Molino that is open to the public. We had my son's swimming class last summer at Perpetual. I just don't know how much yung fees this summer.

Single Moms / Baby is becoming indifferent to having a dad..
« on: September 12, 2012, 12:21:30 pm »
Just last night, I was asking baby, if he still wants to have a dad. My friend advised me kasi to visualize the picture of a complete family for me and baby, para I attract what I want. Just when I was contemplating on it, I asked baby.

me:     baby, do you still want a dad?
baby:  no
me:     ha? no? are you sure? why?
baby:   i have a father na, daddylo. i don't want a dad. i want a kuya. i want a big kuya.
me:     why do you want a kuya?
baby:   so, he stays with us, takes care of us. it's just like a dad.

Now, I am confused. I'm not sure if he really has coped on the idea that he doesn't have a dad, or that maybe he is just in denial. Now, all my male friends of my age range, he wants to convert into "kuyas", not "titos" ha --- kuya, so his "sibling" could stay with us at home.

Have you guys encountered this? Sabi ko na nga ba, dapat Psychology na lang ang under-grad course ko eh..

Single Moms / my son is starting to ask
« on: April 18, 2011, 12:08:16 pm »
Yesterday, while in church, my son had a male-toddler playmate, accompanied by his parents. They would smile at each other, toast their mineral water bottles, and wave their hands. The playmate was carried by the dad, and he wanted me to carry him as well. Sometime before the mass ended, he whispered, "daddy ko?" I just assumed, he was asking -- where is my dad?

Ayan na, although I know baby more or less knows that it's off-topic to talk about his father, he asked innocently, kasi the family behind me is a perfect epitome of a happy family.

In as much as I would want to make this family whole for him, hindi pwede di ba? Kasi unreliable yung father niya --- kung kelan lang niya matipuhan mangamusta and mag-abala. Pag naabala sya, or napapagalitan ni gf, nawawala sya. I don't want to introduce my son to a setting na ganun. He's not even among the priorities. He's just one of those activities to "kill time".

What do I say? What do I do? Naawa naman ako kay baby.. :'(

Hi guys,

Actually, this question became an off-topic from a previous post at single mom's page. For my peace of mind and wellbeing, I would like to block messages from some numbers. I couldn't change my number now, since I have a lot of clients that know about this number.

I have asked Smart & Globe for text blocking feature, wala daw sila. Only Sun offers this feature, for a fee of P50/monthly per number.

Problem is, my primary phone is with Smart.  My internet is with Globe, and my secondary phone is with Sun.  I need to block people from my Smart.

I am posting this for other mommies to learn as well.
