Buwan ng Wika — Another Mommy First!

Last Friday was the culmination of Buwan ng Wika– literally, a month-long celebration of the Filipino language, and all things Filipino.  At the same time, I experienced another Mommy first– A’s first school program!

While I was excited to see my child perform, I was also a bit stressed about finding the perfect Filipino costume for her to wear.  Trust me, I can get a bit obsessive and maarte with these things.  Hahaha!  And a bit to my dismay, A’s teachers did not give us much time to come up with something for her to wear. As much as I didn’t want to, I knew I had to buy something from the store and ready-made, which meant that it would probably need some major alteration!  Thank goodness our yaya knows how to sew!  Hahaha!

Here is the little one, modelling her baro’t saya :).  I think she looks adorable!

Here she is singing the national anthem.  Look at how both her palms are over her “breast”!  I love it!  I really hope my little girl grows up to love her country the same way I do :).

I held my breath a little, but in the end I heaved a sigh of relief–the little miss performed!  And a great performance, at that!  She sang and did the actions to Sampung Mga Daliri, the song assigned to her class.  Thank goodness!  I didn’t want to be one of those parents whose child froze or did nothing on stage…Or worse, caused a ruckus!  Hahaha, pressure for A!

Here I am, the proud mama, with my little performer!

It was a good day :).

  1. Congratulations! My daughter is now almost 15 years old. Please continue to enjoy your daughter at every age. It seemed like yesterday when my daughter was so small.

    • Thank you 🙂 I’m sure I’ll be saying the same thing a couple of years from now. Even now I continue to be amazed at how time flies so fast!

  2. So cute your little girl in Filipiniana costume. 🙂
