Today, I went to Sta. Rosa and San Pedro to leave BRAIN TRAIN summer 2012 UPCAT review registration materials. Raviv with Yaya Isay, and Yoona with Yaya Tet accompanied me and our new driver Dodong (who is Yaya Isay’s jowa). Our first stop was at Sta. Rosa Sci Tech. Dodong and I left the babies with their yayas at the parking lot, which was near and directly facing the school building. After I have finished talking to the school principal and her secretary, I went back to the parking lot to the car. The babies and their yayas were outside the car. On my way to the car, I heard a jubilant chorus of “Hi Ms. Dewmaine!” from a group of senior high school girls (my former students last summer) on the second floor lobby. I smiled at them and waved back–it warms my heart so much when my former students greet me excitedly! I also mouthed, “Baby ko” to the students as I pointed to Raviv (who was being carried by either Dodong or Yaya Isay). Then we (I and my entourage) proceeded to get into the car. Raviv was placed onto his infant car seat at the back, and the minute his bottom (aka pwet) touched his car seat, he wailed and squirmed. I decided to get him (rather, have Yaya Isay and Dodong get him and give him to me) and have him sit on my lap instead tutal our next destination was near (but if I were in the US irresponsible mom na ako for doing it…sorry baby) . When he was in the passenger seat in the front with me, he stood on my lap and started pounding on the car window. I then rolled my car window down, and then Raviv put his head out and started smiling ay the group of students who greeted me earlier. As if that pagpapa-cute were not enough, he started vigorously waving at them too (although the waving was done vertically, which made it cuter I guess, as I saw some of the girls imitating the “Raviv Wave”)! It was a sight to behold, and my heart swelled with pride! Even those who didn’t know me on the ground floor smiled and waved at Raviv too, and most of them were cooing “Ang cuuute!” Raviv kept smiling and waving (he momentarily paused from waving to clap with his tiny, chubby hands) even when the car was already moving and was turning back. It was as though he were a famous celebrity on a parade float patronizing his fans! And his “fans” didn’t cease from waving back until we were out of sight. Yaya Isay and I were really proud of him! Yaya Isay even said, “Sayang kung nakita ka lang ng tatay mo baby matutuwa talaga yun! Ang galing-galing talaga ng alaga ko!”
If you aren’t a mom/dad yet, you might not understand why this “petty” thing is blog entry worthy to me. Had I read a similar blog entry (to this) before I had my Raviv, I might have easily judged the writer to be pathetic or peg her as someone whose life is probably boring as to be amused with something as trivial. But when you’re already a mom, it is the things that aren’t related to your kids that would start looking trivial. Ü Again, I’m using this opportunity to impart to kids to honor their parents and to obey them because, as I keep on saying over and over again, WE ONLY HAVE YOUR BEST INTEREST AT HEART. This blog entry is an example: I accomplished quite a few things today but what mattered most was my son’s three-minute pagpapa-cute stint.
