First Day of School

The time has come for new school year (here in the Philippines). This is the time of year that parents and school children wake up very early, as early as 4:00am for

others. I wake up at around 4:30am then wake my son up just before 5:00am.

Most Filipino families wake up around this time so parents can prepare breakfast, pack lunch for kids and get the school uniforms ready for kids. Important to mention too, that an early head start is essential during the week because of terrible traffic situation here in Metro Manila. It should only take fifteen minutes from where we live to my son’s school but during rush hour, it takes half an hour or so.


It is a struggle for most kids to get up off the bed very early, and my son is no exception, but eventually, they oblige themselves to get ready, no matter how much they want to stay in bed; especially those who do not want to be late for school.

This morning, I kept walking back and forth, from kitchen to Elijah’s bedroom to wake him up. It made me laugh that he kept asking for a few more minutes in bed. Ultimately though, he got up off the bed, slowly ate his oatmeal, drank his milk, showered and got dressed by himself. By the time his school bus arrived (5:45am), he was very well ready armed with his bag full of school things with his packed lunch and drink.

:D

Love at First Sight... in the most unromantic environment!

“Ms. Quen, wake up, it’s finished. You gave birth to a baby boy!”, a Chinese nurse waking me up gently, with a smile.

I’m not Ms. Quen but that’s how she pronounced my real name, well, no one can ever pronounce it so I don't mind.

I heard him screaming and crying for something only a mother knows what: he was suddenly out of the womb and hearing unfamiliar voices, different language (Chinese).
This was originally posted on 19th of August 2008.


I tried to lift my hands but I can’t. After almost a whole day of labour which eventually lead to emergency caesarian, I didn’t have energy at all. So, I used little energy left in me to speak up and say,

“It’s okay baby, Mommy is here”.

Wow! for the first time I said those words: baby, Mommy.

I’m a Mommy!

I was so glad that when he was still in my womb I always talked to him, sang for him and played music for him so that when he gets out he will recognize me, with my voice.

He stopped crying at once, no kidding! And bobbed his head to look where is that familiar voice coming from. For the first time, we met and looked into each others eyes.

Oh my God! He is beautiful! I fell in love instantly.

So, it’s true! Love at first sight can happen ...even in the most unromantic environment. This is a couple of minutes' event that I will treasure and nothing or no one can take away that precious moment from me and my son.

The nurse carrying my baby put him on my chest long enough for us to stare at each other before I fell into deep sleep again.

So What?


Na na na na na
Na na na na na
I guess I just lost my husband
I don't know where he went
So I'm gonna drink my money
I'm not gonna pay his rent (nope)
I've got a brand new attitude,
And I'm gonna wear it tonight
I'm gonna get in trouble
I wanna start a fight

Na na na na na
I wanna start a fight
Na na na na na
I wanna start a fight!

[Chorus]
So,
This is my special ring tone for someone I do not particularly want to talk to for the past couple of years. Oh well... it's good to feel something no matter what or how it was :D So what?! I just wish that I'm a Rock Star like Pink @.@

So what I'm still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't need you
And guess what
I'm havin more fun
And now that were done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright
I'm just fine
And you're a tool so
So what
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight

Unh Check my flow Uohhh

The waiter just took my table
And gave it to Jessica Simps
(Shit! )
I guess I'll go sit with drum boy
At least he'll know how to hit
(Oops)
What if this song's on the radio,
Then somebody's gonna die! haha
I'm going to get in trouble,
My ex will start a fight

Na na na na
He's gonna to start a fight
Na na na na
We're all gonna get in a fight!

[Chorus]
So,
So what I'm still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't need you
And guess what
I'm havin more fun
And now that were done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright
I'm just fine
And you're a tool so
So what
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight

You weren't there
You never were
You want it all but that's not fair
I gave you life
I gave my all
You weren't there, you let me fall

[Chorus]
So, so what I'm still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't need you
And guess what
I'm havin more fun
And now that were done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright
I'm just fine
And you're a tool so
So what
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight

No no
No no, I don't want you tonight
You weren't there
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright
I'm just fine
And you're a tool so
So what
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight

(Wooohooooooo! )
