I have an 11 year old son and he’s every bit like me. Introverted yet so expressive. You have to see his drawings, he’s really great. He likes all sorts of junks and inventing things. He likes cool gadgets and listening to music. He reminds me of Bert of Sesame Street because he likes to crack jokes that just don’t make any sense. The jokes aren’t funny but he is. Although sometimes he’s insensitive, lacks initiative, timid and not too attentive.. but he is a kind, caring, intelligent, responsible and loving individual.
I have a 6 year old little girl who is very talkative. She is very intelligent. She likes singing, dancing and performing on stage. My little fashionista. She excels in almost everything in class however she’s most of the time impatient. She makes all sorts of comments and gestures that just make your day even if you’re under the weather. She’s miss little friendly, a real PR person in the making. Her two favorite past time? – eating and watching dvd. Her favorite expression to me as of this moment is “I’ll make you proud, Daddy.” hehehe.
I am very thankful to have these two. They actually get along with each other, give or take a few squabbles every now and then which is quite normal to all kids specially when they’re both so very sleepy. They’re both messy and overly active (sobra sa kulit).. but they are the spices of my life. My salt and pepper and I love them both very much.
Neng, i’m sure that we have made the two best unplanned decisions of our lives.
Happy Father’s Day to all dads, would be father and the father by deed and heart.
To my Tatay, wherever you are now, HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY to you!
