Every time I watch RJ as she sleeps, I cannot help but feel apprehensions. I am glad that she is growing healthy, pretty and smart but she is growing up too fast and I am afraid that she will be like those kids in the neighborhood very soon. I always hear these tweens (kids between eight and twelve) talking about love, their crushes and beauty products. I do not know what is wrong with the kids these days. When I was their age, I did not care about things like that. Instead, I was playing Chinese garter, “piko”, riding my bike, etc. There were also times that I wished to be kids forever. But seem like kids today are pulling each day to be grown-ups and get involved in things they are not ready for.
How I miss our baby RJ, so innocent and fragile. We like our RJ more now but I hate it when she is asking me questions about lotions, make-ups, crushes and pregnancies. Rhonnel and I are always here to guide her and we are trying our best in instilling her good positive values. And though kids now are exposed to things way too early because of media, I know our RJ would be the same sweet loving girl.

I missed CCs theme last week. Not just CC but other memes as well. I got so busy cleaning the house. It was only then that I realized that blogging consumes most of my time. To all the hosts of these memes, I will make it up this week guys and to begin with, here is my entry for CCs theme, “what do we want from each other”.
What do I want from Rhonnel? Hmmm…let me think. I want Rhonnel to let me massage him when he is tired. I always love to massage him but he always refuses. I do not know why. Maybe because my massages are not good enough or he just does not want me to get tired. Other than this, I want him just the way he is “medyo suplado pero maginoo”. Rhonnel does not speak much in front of the people he does not know very well, but if you are his friend, you will never have a dull moment with him. He has great sense of humor and never run out of jokes. He is hard working and can be very generous and he loves to help the lesser fortunate who deserves his help. He is a true friend, a caring son, a dependable brother, a loving father and a loyal husband.
What he wants from me? Let me guess. I think he wants me to be quiet sometimes. Yes, I talk too much and I know it irritates him when he thinks or doing something. He cannot focus because of my talkativeness. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t nag, medyo makuwento lang. He wants me to be sexy all the time, wearing my spaghetti strap blouses and my short shorts exposing my big thighs…ehehe. One thing I am sure is he wants me to limit my blogging time at night and sleep early every night which is really hard to do.
What do you want from your partner? If there is a tension in your relationship, to mull over this question can be very helpful. Sometimes what you want is so obvious. It is just that your partner is too insensitive to notice or know. Do not be afraid to ask for it. Knowing each others’ needs might be the start of a new, gentler relationship.
The “Me” time or time for your self is a great antidote for the stressful Moms. If you are stressed and see yourself in the mirror with frizzy hair, dry skin, or puffy eyebags, you become very frustrated, short-tempered and snapped easily.
