denial

i read something about quarterlife ‘crisis’ when i tried to look back what i was doing when i was 25. i was picturing i got married at the age of 23 going on 24 — this is what i answer every time i’m asked how old when i got married — so when i was 25 migi was just small and i’m pregnant with meg. but something so wrong. the ages do not connect with my kids’. it made me look for our marriage certificate.

what i found out:
wedding date: march 6, 2004
my birthday: may 18, 1981

so i was actually 22 going on 23 when i got married. gave birth to my migi at 23. then got pregnant again at 23 going on 24. then gave birth to the my meg at 24. so at my 25th birthday, migi was 1 year and 9 months and meg was 8 months. =)

gawd, i always thought i got married when i was going on 24. i believe i’m pretty much in the biggest denial that i got married so young…

this is the only picture i found from a friend who posted it in her multiply account. we never have print-outs of our wedding pictures. they were all saved on mark’s old laptop which is already ‘guba.’ though mark said they’re saved somewhere in the cyberspace. =)

for those who have son

in one episode of homeboy, they have celebrity fathers as the guests. typical pinoy talkshow, at then end of the show, they were asked to give some message to their kids, other fathers and anybody in general. the usual answer of the guests were messages for their kids that they love them and they’re always there for them blahblah. what caught my attention was francis m’s message. he said something like that he needs to be tougher on boys, more strict on them than her daughters because the boys will soon have their own family. they will be the one responsible in raising his own family. they cannot just turn their back on their family when something goes wrong thus he needs to be tough on them. while he tends to be soft with his girls, because he said that if ever something goes wrong with her daughters’ own family/relationship, he can always take them back.

i find it so true. =)
