Say Hello, Elmo!

I started composing my post when my little boy grabbed at the iPAD and started “pouncing” on random letters. πŸ˜› Thought of editing it out, but it makes for a cute little anecdote, so I decided to just let it be. I just applied some formatting to highlight it. πŸ˜‰

Today is Mother’s Day–my second time to be celebrating it. Have been receiving greetings the entire day and they have ALL been heartwarming (yes, even the seemingly “generic” ones! πŸ˜‰ ) Even after a year, it still feels amazing. You see, I never thought I would be a mom (let alone get married). I was the resident baby (not necessarily the bunso) in our barkada. I couldn’t even take care of a cactus, much less a child. But God must have thought otherwise, and He gifted my husband and me with a beautiful baby boy. πŸ™‚

They say, a mother is born the same time as her child. As Elmo learns his ABCs and 123s, I too am learning about parenting, patience and perseverance. As he takes his *baby* steps towards self-reliance, I myself am taking my own tentative steps towards self-realization–that I could become a mother and bring up a child… that I myself am capable of sacrifice and unconditional love. πŸ™‚

  1. I’m imagining ten years from now when Elmo will be old enough to read this post…and see how much his mama’s loved him ever since he was a baby. Love your mother’s heart, Aggie, and your mother’s thoughts. God bless you.
