Filipino Ako!

Filipino ka, sabihin mo! That's the famous tagline Akesha learned from watching the TFC Channel. I started teaching her Tagalog language since she was little. She understands the language but she have trouble saying it and sometimes she forgets.
Akesha @ 2 years old.
This year I'm hoping to focus on teaching her the proper way. No baby talks anymore! Hubby suggested that I should do it after her class.

A video of Akesha a couple of years ago. Here is my translation in case you don't get what she said. 
"Hello everybody. My name is Akesha Dias. I am 3 years old. I live in California, USA! Thank you everybody"....(with matching bow)

 "Ako ay Pilipino. Taas noo kahit kanino. Ang Pilipino ay Ako!"
In english:
I am a Filipino.
Proud to (admit to) anyone
(that) The Filipino is me!

This is my entry for this week's Mommy Moments

Akesha must never forget that she is a Pinay. It's great that you taught her Pinoy language at an early age. I'm sure she will never forget her Pinoy roots especially since she has already visited the Philippines and have met her relatives on your side. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
