We actually have 2 helpers at home: the main one is with us full-time and has been taking care of our household since I was pregnant with Scout, and the one who's with us for a day and a half a week (a.k.a. Yaya 2). Yaya 2 is the one that we're sending to Punlaan School for Housekeeping Service Program. Since Scout is now a lot more manageable and Yaya 1 has really been big help to us, we decided to help with one of the things that she would like to take up: cooking classes.
She can actually cook, but she said that she would like to learn international cooking. So, A and I agreed to send her to 25 Mushrooms once a month.
I used to play football when I was young.
While going around St. Francis Square trying to look for a pair of shoes for Scout, I stumbled upon this football shop that sells jerseys and shorts for kids (their smallest size is 14). I know it's going to be a bit big for Scout, but it's dri-fit. Scout perspires easily, so I thought this material would help minimize it a bit.
I grew up in a family who values education. I've seen both my parents sponsor other kids in their quest to finish school. We were blessed enough that my siblings and I got various forms of scholarships that my parents were able to save enough from our tuition to send other kids to school. I didn't think that I would be given the opportunity to do the same.
A colleague's son was promoted to Eagle Scout over the weekend. She asked me a few weeks back to help her come up with an edible celebration piece. I immediately said cakes and cupcakes, but I was given a budget. So, I had to come up with something else.
I was on my way home via EDSA that day when I saw Krispy Kreme's bilboard for this:

I thought, this should be an interesting project for me.
