When Kids Start To Like Someone

Ever thought about your kid, that was once a little boy, starts to share about how pretty his girl seatmate? You might not that prepared to talk about it but it will surely happen in no time.

Liking the opposite sex is just a normal feeling and everyone will experience it. However, it’s the responsibility of the parents to guide their children when this time comes. They might feel it too early or during the time they are too young to handle the responsibilities that come along with it.

At puberty stage, kids would usually share things to their peers instead of sharing it to mom and dad. How would you be able to know their whereabouts if they won’t share anything with you? The best thing to do is to make your children feel that you are not just their parent but their friend as well. Someone they can share stories with and someone they can rely on.

If liking someone from the opposite sex is being shared by your 7th grade son, then he’s really too young to pursue it. You can explain to him in a nice way that the feeling is normal but he shouldn’t be taking it seriously just yet.

Just When You Think it is Over

I do not see our marriage as perfect but we are lucky to always resolve things together before it leads to another, and for that I am grateful. Though I know many friends and some people who went through rough times with their relationships yet ended up happily ever after just like the fairy tales, I am not in the position to share their stories. I am glad that these people trust me so much, that they are confiding their problems with me and seek for my advice. But sometimes it is hard to give advices if you were not in their shoes.

There are numerous things we have zero control over and marriage is one of them. We always say that for the marriage to lasts, it is important to compromise, understand each other or keep the candle burning but they are easier said than done.

Marriage can be tough and emotional sometimes, however, being open, learning to listen, see and interact and giving each other space could help you patch things and be back in each others arms just when you think it is over.

Kilig Moment in the Bus

L♥ve is in the air. Because it is l♥ve month, the C♥uple’s C♥rner would be filled with hearts and kilig moments this February. To start with, our theme for this week is “Our Firt Kilig Moment”. Oh my! I will not forget it. Would you believe that it happened inside the bus? Yes, the public utility bus you are riding in EDSA. The bus that is always jam-packed with commuters but has space for lovers…ehehe.

Rhonnel and I were officemates on a telecommunications company. Because we were both on operations department, we both have mid-shifts and graveyard shifts. His schedule then was 6am to 2pm while mine was 3pm to 11pm. He was courting me so he was obliged to fetch me at 11pm to be with me even in a short time. Every night, from Cubao, he sent me home to Pasig where I was residing. We were regular passengers of the jam-packed buses. One time, on our way home, he asked me if he can hold my hand. I didn’t reply. I looked at him instead and hold his hand. “Lub dub…lub dub…lub dub”. Those were our hearts murmuring, the only sound you can hear that time. Grabe palakasan kami! Take note…we’re not sweethearts yet. Yes, I like him a lot but I am a certified coy. Don’t worry, just a few months after, I gave him my sweet yes…and the rest would be tackled on our next C♥uple’s C♥rner themes. Wink!

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow

“Will you still love me tomorrow?” I always ask Rhonnel this question, mostly before going to sleep while relaxing in our bed. His answer is “I won’t change. I will love you forever.”

Many changed in me physically since I met him. My waist line was only 25 then but now its 30. My skin color and texture, I don’t know what happened but I am a lot fairer when I was single and those stubborn wrinkles are beginning to appear now. My collagen are decreasing and my cells are beginning to deteriorate, lol! In short I am aging.

So what?! The hell with the fats and the wrinkles. I am still beautiful in his eyes and as we age, our love for each other grows deeper. That is what important to us, loving each other more everyday. Love knows no boundaries and we will love each other even with gray hairs and canes.

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.

20 Reasons Why I Love My Husband

As they say, it is not right to say I love you because. It should be I love you in spite of. But for the Couple’s Corner theme today which is “Why Do I Love Thee”, I will enumerate why I love my husband. This is hard because I have a thousand plus reasons in mind and yet I need to limit this for the list will be too long. So here are the 20 out of a thousand reasons.

I love Rhonnel because…

I can be myself whenever I am with him. I can fart, I can burp, I can pig eat.

He doesn’t mind holding my hands and showing me affection even when there are people around.

He always says what I need to hear. I am beautiful even I am not. I am sexy even I am fat, ehehe.

He always says awesome things about me to other people especially how good I am as a wife and a mother.

He keeps his cool when I do something stupid and he always understands me even when I don’t deserve it sometimes.

He always makes me feel safe and secured when he is wrapping his arms around me.

Being with him I feel like I can defy the whole world.

He always helps me even when I am not asking for it. He cleans the electric fans and the bathroom and helps me with the laundry.

He always seems to be able to read my mind. Most of the time, I don’t need to say a word. He knows what I like.

He trusts me and supports me in every decision I make.

He has been good to my family and helps them in anyway that he can and they all love him too and respect him.

He is loyal to me and to everyone that matters to him.

He always stands and fights for what he believes in and for what he thinks is right.

He has great sense of humor and he is not taking life too seriously especially on financial issues that makes me worry less.

He has taught me so much about life; that life is not fair but with him, everything seems to be alright.

He has seen my bad sides but then he still loves me and sees the beauty in me instead.

He helped me discover myself and bring out the best in me. He appreciates my sketches and drawings and encourages me to do more.

He is the best father and husband anyone could ever ask for and hope for.

When I look into his eyes, I can see how much he loves me.

The way he loves me makes me love him more each day.

Because of this, I will grow old and spend my whole life with him.
