My Birthday Boy!

In a few hours time, my baby boy will be entering the toddlerhood stage. Quite bittersweet as time seems to go so fast and so slow at the same time. I still remember the vivid details when I first saw Geoff, while it was such a blur watching him grow. I am in such awe to see him run, climb, jump, laugh, cry, be naughty and sweet.

As we enter the “terrible two” phase, I pray for strength, wisdom, and guidance to make Geoff a better person in the future. As most mommies can relate, motherhood is not easy, and we are now seeing signs of mischief in those chinky eyes, truly, a test of patience. We are at a point where Geoff is no longer a baby we can leave inside a crib, or surround with pillows; Constant vigilance is what we are right now.


Happy 2nd birthday my baby boy! May you grow up to always be the better person. Be kind, rather than nice. Be strong, yet be weak when necessary. Surround yourself with people who loves you, and would matter the most. Don’t be afraid to take risks, be adventurous and live life (with a little caution, of course!). Daddy and I will always be your number 1 fan, supporter, and cheer leaders. We love you, and will never tire of saying it. Makulitan ka man samin!

One last wish though. I wish you would tire of gibberish na and speak words that we can understand na, ok? I love you!


Happy Birthday Ma! (A Late Post)

June 11 is my Mom’s birthday. It’s sad that we are from Cainta and she is currently in Las Pinas. As much as we want to be with her, it’s in the middle of the work week and funds are currently at another all time low. Hindi bale, I thought, bawi na lang kami this coming weekend. Isabay na sa celebration namin for Father’s Day. Brilliant plan indeed.

As this is all about her, I realized that though we don’t see each other on an eye to eye basis, we both have a lot of shortcomings, and we literally have this sort of sometimes hate but most of the time love relationship, I would not exchange her for anybody else in the world.

I grew up in a very small household. Just me, my brother, and my mom. We did not grow up in riches and we did experience some “nakakaawa” moments growing up. Despite of all the challenges we have been to and through, my mom always manage to save the day. She managed to raise us well, to be the better person no matter what the circumstance is. No, we are not the perfect persons nor children that someone might want to have, but we get by.

I know this is a late post, and you might not be able to read it. I love you ma! Happy birthday and always know that we will always be here for you, the same way you are always there for us.  🙂
