Conversation #8

We were taking pictures when I told my daughter to kiss her brother...

my kids

and then later on told my son to kiss his sister... my son did it but said: "mommy, that is embarrassing, please don't show that picture to anyone!"

...oOo...

Since my kids doesn't go to a Catholic school, I just recently realized that they didn't know the "true meaning" of Christmas and that they (my daughter in particular) only know a few Christmas songs. :-(

We do read children's bible to them but I guess that's not enough. Going to sunday liturgy (for children) is likewise not enough... so my hubby bought this Little Bethlehem and we started telling them about the birth of Jesus.

My daugther's next question: "so Jesus will turn 2 next december?"

That's it for now, am going on a boxing sale, hopefully I would be able to buy some really good deals... just thought I'd blog while waiting for my ride.

hi Pobs,

the french immersion (where my son is enrolled) has a better rating/standard than the catholic school in our area... i'll elaborate this in another entry...

likewise, french speaking (bilinguals) have more job opportunities available for them...

ha ha ha your kids are so adorable and I love that picture. I wonder how you'd explained Jesus' age to them... what a witty question!

So, your son speaks French? I bet maman speaks French too pour les devoirs *smile*.

Have a great day!

ANg mga bata talaga anoh ang daming tanong, paano nlang kaya if the parents are not educated or they don;t have enough knowledge. Kawawa ang mga bata.

Boxing Day

The day after Christmas, the Feast of St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, is better known as Boxing Day. The term may come from the opening of church poor boxes that day; maybe from the earthenware boxes with which boy apprentices collected money at the doors of their masters' clients.

Nowadays, we often see, in certain families, gifts (boxes) given to those who provide services throughout the year.

"Boxing Day" is listed in the Canada Labour Code as a holiday.

hi Raquel,

sorry ngayon ko na lang nabalikan ang tanong mo... boxing day means "SALE SALE and more SALE!!!" as much as 25-75% off!
