Congrats Zoe!

This is my little girl, Zoe, who was, surprisingly declared as Champion for their Spelling Bee contest. She is currently in grade 1. Why I said surprisingly? Because she never told us that she won. But there was more to that story...

Zoe has speech delay. However, she's able to cope up with her lessons, she is still at par with her grade level. Her only difficulty is conversing with other people. She talks to me, of course, but her sentence construction is not like the common 7-year-olds. She's currently enrolled in a Therapy center that helps her with her language skills.

So, to be chosen as one of the representatives in their section (there were 2 of them in their section, 10 all in all for grade 1 level) for Spelling Bee was more than enough for us. But winning 1st place was something else!

But I was a bit sad that I never knew she won coz she didn't tell me. I didn't watch coz I thought we were not allowed, but actually we were. Only that, at the back of my mind, I might distract my child's concentration if ever I watch so I just waited for someone to tell me how she did during quiz bee...but no one approached or told me. So, I assumed she didn't win.

But then, I also thought that maybe (just maybe) she got a place coz in fairness to Zoe, she's good in Spelling. She has this sharp mind that she could easily recall the words, and spelling is one of her strengths in English subject. She never even got a mistake in spelling quiz in their class.

So, it was only the following day that I learned that my daughter won and the teacher congratulated me because Zoe was the champion! But looking at Zoe's expression, I don't even know if it was a big deal for her because she just smiled and continue doing her thing, lol.

To our dear Zoe, Congratulations! I always thanked God for you. Thank you for giving sunshine to our lives. You brighten us up always. We love you so much and looking forward for more 'adventures' with you.

Color of The Year in 2018

Happy New Year everyone! They said that 2018's color is Ultraviolet Pantone. I thought of looking for a striking violet-colored shirt only to find out that the color is closed to color blue, lolz. I guess my husband got the right color of the shirt, next was my eldest daughter, mine was purple, my baby girl wore lilac-colored shirt. Well, at least we still looked coordinated :-) 

Cheers to 2018! May we all have a good one!

Make The Kids Kuto-Free with Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo

Pediculosis or Head lice (or Kuto in Filipino language) are rampant in children aged 4-12 years old. Head lice are common problems the parents encounter especially to young girls with long hair. Boys can have it, too, even to girls with short hair. You will know if your kids have it if they kept scratching their heads because of itchiness. Head lice can spread by close contact or by sharing personal belongings like combs, hair accessories, beddings, towels, clothings, etc. To be safe, better tell your kids not to share these things to others and use only their own.

A lot of us, parents, are familiar with suyod. A comb that can help remove head lice. However, not all can be eliminated so we must look for a better remedy to instantly eradicate these blood-sucking 'creatures' in the head.

And it's good to know that some schools and communities nationwide took part of the launching of Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto as part of its KilusangKontraKuto to educate the public about the infestation of head lice. With the help of LiceAliz Head Lice Treatment shampoo, children will be kuto-free if applied properly.

In my previous post, Licealiz Battles Head Lice Infestation in Mindanao With KilusangKontraKuto, you will know how this campaign already worked in some parts of the country.

P.S. Thank you LiceAliz for sending me these items last Christmas. My whole household benefited a lot from these. Wishing you more success and hope to see more kids free from head lice :-)
