Daughter #2 is at it again. For the past four years, this time of the year, everyone who is "weak" succumbs to daughter #2s school dilemma. October is International Month at the school where daughter #2 teaches. She is so harassed and stressed for the thousand and one things that need to be done and taken care of for the said month-long celebration. I have figured that It's either the principal loves her or hates her. Love - for the principal gives her so many responsibilities to undertake for the celebration. Hate - for the principal gives her so many responsibilities to undertake for the celebration.

Four years ago, September 27 to be exact, I fractured my left ankle. My ankle has to be in cast for about 6 weeks. Daughter #2 was panicky for we have not started choreographing the dance routine of her grade level. I told her that I'll help her still. And help I did. She even had the gumption to complain that I was not consistent with my points and flexes - hello! my left foot was in cast. Then there was the time, she was in-charge of the "Battle of the Bands" and the whole family had to help her feed the contestants - I did the cooking while my maids and daughters did the serving. Okay, I was paid for that.

The school campus is now throbbing with activities. The main quadrangle is filled with trade show booths - Globe, Fitness First and the likes. One can see the numerous tables decked in different-colored Table skirts sporting the logos of each represented grade level arranged at the gym - laden with "food to share". Daughter #2 even designed banners just for the occasion and they are all proudly displayed on banner stands she insisted the maintenance crew of the school provide. She actually wanted a pipe and drape- sort of a backdrop drapery set - but I guess the maintenance crew finally said "No". Three more days and the school activities will commence. Guess what? Come Friday, I'm to cook dinner for 15 of daughter #2's co-teachers. They have decided to "unwind" in our house. My tasks never end.

  1. Hay naku...this brings back memories. Sa MS di ako ganong nakikisali kasi once you're 'discovered', lagot na...at saka walang ganong big affair dun except yung Filipino Week ba? Dun sa school sa Taiwan medyo napasubo ako one time. I agreed to sing a verse behind the curtains during a program...our Mother Superior/Principal heard and asked kung sino. Pinakanta ako sa Parents' day....the most frightening day of life....grabe...buti na lang last year ko na sa school...hahaha.

    Anyway, I can empathize with D#2. I think the Principal loves her kasi she can deliver...ang kaso may casualty palagi...Kayo! hahaha....
