How Girls Get Pregnant

I overheard my 5 year-old son and his playmates talking about pregnancy at the swimming pool the other day.
A cute and chubby little boy joins them in the water.

"Mommy Jeremy is pregnant!" Cow says out loud pointing to the little boy's round belly. His nine-year old sister Marie was quick to defend him.

"No, he's a boy! Only girls can get pregnant Cowcow!"

"So you're pregnant!" Cow says, "You're a girl!"

"No, you can only get pregnant if you're 18 and have a boyfriend!"

Hahaha! I couldn't help but laugh, but there's some truth to that though.

Prima Day Care and Play School: A Fun Learning Facility in Makati

Prima Day Care and Play School is situated inside a hotel called the Ascott which is part of the Glorietta Mall. 

I am considering enrolling my son in their arts & crafts summer program. I like their day care facility and how accessible it is. I see their place as an alternative learning venue for my son besides his regular preschool (which is more academic oriented than play oriented because there is so much pressure to enter children these days in what we call the student-selective Big schools).  But that's another story. My son likes doing crafty things with his hands and I know Cow would enjoy this daycare.


The Prima Day Care and Play School program is ideal for parents, local and expatriates, who would like to send their children to a learning center on a full school year or for a short period of time.

The Prima Day Care and Activity Center is open from Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Enrollment is open all year round to children aged 2 to 5.5 years old. Day care rates average at Three hundred pesos (P300) for one hour. You may refer to their website for their complete and package fees.
