My daughter is 14 months old. She's a funny little creature. Yesterday we went to church and we usually bring some crackers and juice along with her milk just in case she gets hungry. She can say 'crack-koh' for crackers and any other biscuit. She likes Skyflakes for which I'm thankful as they aren't salty nor sweet. Yesterday, she asked for some crack-koh during mass and of course, there were several other kids in the kid's prayer room that I had to share her crackers to about seven other children. Tips to moms: always bring a spare! lots of 'em. She, unlike other kids who feel shy, isn't scared of strangers and would normally just go up to ask for some other kid's food from their mothers. It is embarassing in our Filipino culture to ever ask for anything from anyone. So I often blush when she does this and compensate by giving away food to other kids.
