The Youngest

Among the cousins of nine, that is. I am just glad that my sister's friends took some photos recently of my nephews and nieces back home. Nabulong man ang hidlaw ko.

Anyway, the Tatapilla is quite happy looking at the photos online. He seems to miss them all so it's a nice way of reminding him about them. Being an only child, I don't feel that he misses playmate as we are all his playmate around the house but I believe it's the comfort of knowing that he has cousins even if he doesn't know what really cousins are. As far as he is concered, they are relatives, someone to share steel rings or to grizzle to.

Narnia - Dawn Treader

On weekends, we have made it a habit to watch a movie - sometimes early Sunday morning. And this weekend, it's the third adventure on Narnia. The Tatapilla liked it though, it take him sometime to catch up on what's happening.

We have resolved that we'll buy the DVD's for this as it's a quite good collection. Everyone was hooked.

Oh, I know that the apidextra review has to be done so enough of this blabbering.


Baking Again

Today, after a long time, we baked cookies again. I liked the cookies that my workmate brought to work that I asked for the recipe. It's been over two or three months but finally, I tried it.

The Tatapilla at first, didn't one want to participate - because he was eating ice cream, what else is more exciting? But when it came to beating and licking the spoon and the beater, he was interested. The whole family pitched in.

The Tatapilla can't even wait for it to cook. He had two when they cooled down. I'd say they were quite yummy if I didn't burn the base. Not because I was busy on the vlc free download but I thought they were not cooked yet as they were not golden so I left them 5 minutes too long in the oven. Oh well, they're liked.


Age Gap

I read this article about the big questions that most parents ask. What is the ideal age gap between sibs? There are different answers of course depending on anyone's point of view. The article suggests that based on studies, it is 20 months. The mother has to get pregnant while the first child is on his 11 months.

I strongly disagree on this. There are so many factors. The mother's health, the well being of the first child and the second child as well. If money is not a matter, I still reckon it is too early. The first child needs a lot of attention at that stage and comprehension as to why he is not getting it is too far beyond. More so with the 2nd child. It will be so hard to balance between the two.

I reckon, it is out of the question if money will be considered that the Mum wouldn't even find the time to enjoy shopping womens sandals once in a while.

But at the end of the day, to each her/his own. I just hope that everyone's welfare is considered.
