A reader at home?

I don’t want to make a big deal out of it because it might get jinx. But I’m feeling such a proud mother to see Meg in a frequent random acts of “reading.”

It’s not unusual that Meg would sometimes ask for the headlamp to

read some fairytale books to make her self fall asleep. But it’s a bit different when she picks up every night the “whimpy kid diary” book which was bought by Migi years ago.
Then she tags it along with her when we go out.
Then sometimes she arrives in a different car pool from her kuya because she got left behind. She was left behind because she sneaked into their library.
We had to get her another library card as she lost it.
And, I just learned via eavesdropping in their conversation that she’s the president of their Aesop’s club. It’s like a book club in their school.

Meg’s 7th Birthday (09/01/2012)

If our whole house looks like a mural (but more of vandalized gheto alley), it’s because of Meg. 
all her random artworks sticked by her to our walls 

As I said, birthdays in our family are quite templated. It’s spag/chicken/cakes/ice cream then add in some neighborhood friends and / or relatives kind of celebration. And as special request by Meg — it should be white rice.

Before her birthday, we went to SM Consolacion to get her birthday gift, a new school bag, which is the same with Migi except it’s PINK!

Then, Saturday, we got her cake. She wanted a “cookies and cream” cake, but, unfortunately, it was NOT available on that day. She went for a chocolate cake instead. I was a bit surprised that she no longer ask for a “cartoon character-themed” cake.

It was raining hard on that day so the neighborhood kids were not much of an attendance. The note posted on the door definitely showed who’s having the party!
