Splash Math: The Fun Way To Learn



I hate Math! I always said that being a doctor would be perfect for me because there would be little math involved. Boy, was I wrong. Apparently, there are tons and tons of numbers and a whole bunch of formulas to be solved in the field of Medicine.

Henry, being my son, took after my dislike for the subject. Give him any other homework and he would finish it in a heartbeat. But, with math problems, it would take him hours to finish. This disdain for it has caused us many arguments, math anxiety for him and of course, a toll on his grades.

Enter, Splash Math.

Splash Math is an interactive math program available on the web or any iOS device. Math skill levels starting from Kindergarten to Grade 5 are available in this app. It makes learning fun through games and rewards.

What I like about my Splash Math is that it challenges my son to answer each question correctly and thus helping him gain mastery of certain math skills. it also provides explanations for the wrong answers.

As the parent, I choose which Math skill sets he will solve for the day. I make sure that it will be congruent with his lessons in school. Parents are given the chance to preview the math problems and try to answer it themselves. Henry is currently in 4th grade and Splash Math covers their currrent topics such as PEMDAS, Algebra, Fractions and Geometry.

Another thing that I like about this app is that it is available anytime and anywhere. Henry uses his laptop for it at home, and when we go out, he can access it through my iPhone.

Splash Math gives you reports on how your child is doing with regards to his math skills. So, even if I am on duty at the hospital, I can easily track his progress.




Splash Math also has separate apps for each grade level. However, I prefer the all-in-one Splash Math Grades K-5 app since it makes it easier to go back to lower levels for when Henry needs to review his basics. 

Splash Math is available online via their website and on the App Store.

Our Afternoon at Adventure Zone in Shangri-La at the Fort

We decided to celebrate my birthday last December by having a staycation in Shangri-La at the Fort. One of the reasons why I chose this hotel was to check out Adventure Zone. 

Adventure Zone Shangri-la the Fort

Adventure Zone is a 1000-square meter indoor playground inside Shangri-la at the Fort that I thought Henry might enjoy. And, I was right!

As soon as we got there, his eyes sparkled with excitement. It’s a great place for toddlers, big kids and even for parents.

How To Throw An Unforgettable Birthday Party For Your Kids - The Do’s and The Don'ts

There are wonderful ideas for throwing your kid an awesome birthday party on the internet. Unfortunately, some of the writers of these ideas either never had a child, or never threw their kid a birthday party.

As with everything in a parents universe, a party is only fun if it is functional. If you have to use phrases like “Don’t touch that!” or “Here, let me reach that for you.” you are either a glutton for punishment or you have missed the mark. Your child's birthday party is for your child. It is designed for a child's skill level. It should be cute and fun, but not to impress the adults. With that in mind, we are going to give you some ideas that will let you be the envy of other parents and make your child feel like he is king for a day.

#5YearsLater : Life Goals Achieved


Happy New Year everyone! I have to admit that this blog has been neglected for a long period of time. I started this blog a long time ago when I was still a wee medical student and I wanted to document my life as I struggled between med school and motherhood. Looking at my sidebar profile, I realized that a lot has changed since then.  



For starters, I am not a twenty-something anymore. I now belong to the Thirtysomething Gang (Gilmore girl reference). Aside from my age, I hope that those added years gave me more wisdom.  




I’m proud to say that the lawyer-in-making has finally achieved his ultimate goal last year. The results of the bar exam came out on the 2nd quarter of last year and he passed it on his first take.  


And my little boy, well, he’s not so little anymore. He grew an average of 1/2 an inch per month in 2017.

He’s turning 10 years old this month and almost a tween. From making homemade playdoh, he now loves playing Roblox on his laptop. But, he’s still as sweet and ever.
  
As for me, I am now licensed to heal. I passed the medical boards 3 years ago. It seems like only yesterday when I was picking out my clothes for my first day of internship

After the boards, I went straight into residency. This is why I haven't been updating the blog. I am now training to be an OB-GYN. I still have years left before I am done with it but I know that with the grace of God, he will allow me to finish this and guide me on this new journey. 

How has your life changed from 5 years ago? I would love to hear about your story in the comments section.
