YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO'S MY HERO?
'AY LAB YU MAMA..' I wake up in the morning feeling rather tired and melancholic..and my son brightens me up with that greeting. All of a sudden, I am like bring it on sadness! bring it on discouragement! bring it on life!! His sweet little voice resonates in my ear for the rest of the day... and for the rest of my life.
My son is my hero, the wind beneath my wings. The moment I discovered I was finally pregnant, though I was so full of joy, I couldn't help asking, how will I become a mother? My own son taught me to become one.
I am still learning the ropes, I am still discovering. It can be tiring, sometimes scary, but most of the time motherhood is a mystical, blissfully magical experience.
'AY LAB YU MAMA..' My little hero simply says it all.
PS: He calls me NANAY. But interestingly, each time he says I love you, it has to be with a MAMA, not NANAY.
