Feeling my feelings

Today it just occurred to me that people will never be able to experience Eden the way babies not born during the pandemic were experienced. Her first year of life seems to be in captivity. She’s like one of the hostages of the pandemic. That made me sad. I felt sad because it seems that […]

Letting Go..

…is just another way to sayI’ll always love you so Yes that’s the Barry Manilow song. But I am using this line for Elon. Because yesterday he did a beginner trial for basketball kids. It was 6-7 in the evening and that was also Eden’s bedtime. I had to miss it (let go) although I […]

Ding dong

Ding dong says the bell as I cross the street to drop you off in school. It is the first real sign of the day that I am to part with you. Shakespeare said parting is such sweet sorrow but it’s mostly sorrow for me. Maybe because you’re just 4 and very sweet. My boy, […]

Happy trivial everydays

Happy birthday, my love. I have been writing down notes weeks ago for this blog post but nothing ever worked out except for this one I just wrote during the eve of your birthday. I am an ESFJ so below is purely my feelings. Here it goes. I admit it, I have put you aside […]

To More Poutines and Caramel Sundaes 

Edward,  You probably think this letter for our anniversary is overrated. It is true. I have written too much about you on this blog that I even have a category named “Edwards” just to store all posts about you. But I also admit that I have neglected you since Elon was born. As I write […]

Rainbows and Butterflies (and a little rain)

It will be almost 60 days since Elon was born. Since day one, I have been with him 24/7. During the times that I am awake from when he was born, I looked at him, kissed him, held him, and cared for him. The rest of the times, that I am asleep, I dreamt about […]

It’s Saturday, I’m Still In Love

Inspired by Edward and the Daily Post. I had many crushes from when I was young until probably now. I remember having a crush from when I was in Day Care. I know, I started young. I do not really remember my Day Care Crush but I do remember having to peek into the windows […]

Golden Rule

Inspired by the Daily Post. I believe in Karma. It’s not because of the religion closely related to it but more importantly, it’s because I believe that whatever you put into this world has a way of reaching you back.. eventually. Confucius had a golden rule which has the same concept as Karma: “do unto […]

I wish for a Parallel Universe

Inspired by the Daily Post. The Daily Challenge: Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision. Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded. Many of you know that the greatest issue in my life is my family’s move to Toronto from Manila. So almost, if not all […]
