Jolina Magdangal has come to accept that her kids Pele, 5, and Vika, 1, are growing up into each own person different from one another, even when they show similarities as siblings.

She relates, "Ganon pala iyon. Kahit na magkapatid, nag-iiba talaga ng ugali.

"Dati kasi may nagkukuwento na po sa akin, na parang, 'O, basta mag-ready ka pagka dalawa anak mo, tatlo, kasi magkaka-iba ng ugali iyan.'

"Sabi ko, 'Paano mangyayari iyon? E, kung ano naman ginawa mo sa una, puwede mo gawin sa pangalawa.'

"Pero hindi, magkaiba na magkaiba sila ng ugali."

She and husband see some similiarities between her kids.

"Hindi sila picky eaters," the ABS-CBN host-actress says. "Pareho sila na kahit anong ibigay mo, kakainin nila. Gulay, prutas, hindi masyado sa junk food, pero kumakain sila."

But the differences between Pete and Vika are beginning to be more obvious to Jolina.

She continues, "Si Pele lang, medyo siya iyong talagang mas mabait. 'Tapos si Vika, ay, nagtatapon ng toys. Iyong mga ganon. Iyon lang naman iyong pagka-iba nila...

"Magkaiba, kasi nagre-recall ako, e. Nung edad ni Pele na one year old and five months, tinitignan ko pictures, e, naalala ko pa.

"Si Pele, ilagay mo lang sa crib 'tapos may pinapanood siya na Baby Einstein, okay na siya.

"Itong si Vika, okay naman siya, pero pag nakita niya hindi mo siya pinapansin, hagis niya iyong iPad. So sabi ko, 'Ay, magkaiba sila.'"

But Jolina isn't allowing her son and daughter to be drastically different from each other.

"Tinututukan ko lalo si Vika, kasi ayoko siya talagang magkaibang-magkaiba sila. Meron pa rin sila similarities magkapatid."

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with Jolina at a lifestyle event on October 29.

MUSICALLY INCLINED

Both Jolina and her husband, the Rivermaya founding member Mark Escueta, however, are happy that Pele and Vika are showing interest in music.

Jolina, a performer and actress as well, says, "Ang nakakatuwa kay Pele sa ngayon, kahit siguro nung edad niya na two, nakikita na namin na may passion siya talaga sa music. Doon siya sa music...

"'Tapos si Vika, kahit one year old pa lang siya, nagha-hum na siya. May music din siya, may passion din siya sa music."

Jolina also sees that Pele is interested in the arts.

"Nakikitaan namin siya ng passion for arts, sa paintings, saka mahilig siya mag-decorate ng mga bagay.

"Ano makita niya diyan, kahit T-shirt lang iyon o kahit anong laruan iyon, ide-decorate niya iyon."

Seeing her kids expressing their interests, Jolina says she and husband Mark are ready to support their endeavors.

"Natutuwa kami kapag lalo pa nila ine-explore iyong curiosity nila pagdating sa interests nila.

"Siguro kung ano man maging passion nila paglaki nila, I think kung ano man iyon, basta makakabuti sa kanila, isu-support talaga namin mag-asawa."
