Gossip and Scrapbooking

So the past few weeks I've been a certified busy-body. Talk about multi-tasking. I think I may have successfully perfected the art of scrapping while watching TV (or is that the other way around?) And I have proven to my doubting DH that indeed I can watch trashy TV and still create beautiful layouts. Judge not a layout by its perfection but by the memories it contains. I'm scrapping beautiful memories, ergo, my layouts are beautiful hehehe.

So despite the fact that I've been addicted to gossip...Gossip Girls, that is, I finished a few layouts. I made these in between ogling Serena Van der Woodsen's cleavage and tsk-ing at Blair Waldorf's maneuverings.

Let's Pretend

The photos are not great and neither is the occasion, but I just had to scrap the story of how my little girls plotted to lie to the security guard at the hospital.


Journaling:
You wanted to come with us to visit Lola Mars in the UST Hospital but I was concerned about their rule that does not allow children below 10 years old to visit. So you said you can pretend to be 10. To test your readiness to lie, I asked:

Me: How old are you?
Sarah: I'm 10 years old!
Me (doubtfully): You don't look like you're 10.
Sarah (without hesitation): That's because I'm malnourished!
Kahlo: Me, me, ask me, ask me!
Me: You don't look 10.
Kahlo: That's because...I'm a...midget!

We all laughed at your celverness and excitement to visit Lolo. You managed to convince us to take you along. But at the hospital, the guard didn't even bother to check your ages at all. 10/19/08

You Call Me Mimi


This is about Kahlo, who again, to be different from her siblings had to call me and her "Pipi" differently.

Squirrel Boy


Journaling:
You and I always argue over your habit of storing food in your cheeks when you eat. You stuff your mouth with food, move much of it to your right cheek and chew small pieces ever so slowly. I always ask you to limit the food in your mouth but you don't listen. I hope this is just a stage. I'd hate to be calling you squirrel man when you're an adult. It won't be so cute then, you know. 4/28/09

sobrang natawa ko sa journaling mo sa "let's pretend". turuan bang mag-lie ang mga bata? hehehe. pero in fairness, super nakakatawa talaga mga sagot nila. ;o)
