Before leaving for their family vacation in Japan, Toni Gonzaga shared with the press just how unique her baby Seve is during their recent Red Ribbon presscon. “Well Seve is like his parents. He’s not a usual kid na maaga natutulog. He sleeps at 11 pm. Pag talagang super active 12. He wakes up around 10 am and then he takes his brunch. We tried our best to make him sleep at 8 pm but it doesn’t work. He’s just so active. Like last night he slept before 12. There was so much going on in the room. He likes to read books and play with his toys, he likes his Legos and all that. We don’t want to be too strict and impose a system on him. We give him the allowance to do what he wants within of course the limitation that’s still proper and okay for him,” she shared.
Even their sleeping arrangements at home are unique because they consider Seve’s safety first. “He sleeps on the bed. I sleep on the sofa because Seve has his own bed in the corner. Our bed is really, really high and we’ve heard so many stories of babies falling off the bed. Wala akong kilalang isang mommy na nagsabi na hindi pa nahuhulog yung baby nila sa bed and medyo mataas talaga yung bed namin. Up to this day ganun pa rin ang set up namin but when we travel we sleep in the same bed,” Toni explained.
At two years old, Seve is already enjoying learning different things with his tutor. “His nap time is 12 nn to 2 pm and then when he wakes up. Si Seve now nag-tu-tutor na siya. He goes to class ng weekends. Meron siyang class na tini-take for social skills and yung tutor niya is for motor skills. Tuesday and Thursday ang tutor niya and then on weekends dun yung class niya. Yung tutor we got that idea yung preparation niya when he goes to school na parang he knows na what’s going to go on. Same teacher as Scarlet. Recommended by Vicki Belo. Actually mas mabilis yung development. In this day and age kasi you don’t really have that much time anymore to focus and sit down so there’s someone to help,” she said.
