On Our 6th Year Anniversary

Ours is a love story typical of a movie script — friends who met after how many years, got into a car accident and then realized they can’t live without each other. We may have hurt some people to be with each other, but that’s a decision I’m never, ever going to regret. Choosing you has made my life exhilarating.

I don’t want to be sappy this early in the morning but here are 6 lessons I’ve learned over the years that may help other young couples keep the love alive:

  1. Never sleep on a disagreement. It’s best to pour out your feelings rather than keeping them aside. Open communication is key!
  2. Don’t talk about your partner negatively. Especially in front of his parents, hehe.
  3. Our love language is time. So we see to it that we set breakfast dates or a quick beer run, to have couple time!
  4. Always choose love. There was a time that I thought I couldn’t go on with the relationship anymore. But setting aside pride, anger and jealousy, love will always be there.
  5. I really like it when Bry kisses me good night even when I’m asleep. It’s the small things that make the big impact.
  6. Keep the friendship alive and the passion burning.

To my biggest critic and number 1 supporter, happy anniversary! I love you! 

 

Z and Daddy Dates

My husband’s ultimate dream is to be a dad. And I’m really happy I got to fulfill it for him twice, hehe! So I know his frustration when Z was super attached to me. But those days are gone now…

They’ve been having lots of time together, just the two of them. Over the weekend, they saw the Amazing BubbleMan and Hotel Transylvania 2, leaving me and Baby Y at home. My little boy also prefers his Daddy to bring him to school, and that I should just stay in our room. With this set-up, they also have McDonald’s dates after Bry fetches him. After 3 years, my son discovered that Daddy is more fun than Mommy (maybe because he’s not breastfeeding na?!).

My aunt asked me if I’m jealous. It’s not really jealousy; it’s more of coming to terms that there are activities Bry would handle better than me. And as early as now, Z understands that his parents have different (parenting) roles to play. It is accepting the fact that Z is indeed growing up, maturing and being more independent. I should be thankful that I have a husband who sees to it that he is present in the lives of our children. And that I get to have time for myself too.

¬†Haaay… As I’m typing away, Z is snuggling to his Daddy and both of them are snoring the night away. Thanks for my me-time, you two!

There’s No Place I’d Rather Be…

We’re a thousand miles from comfort, we have traveled land and sea
But as long as you are with me, there’s no place I’d rather be
I would wait forever, exalted in the scene
As long as I am with you, my heart continues to beat

We staked out on a mission to find our inner peace
Make it everlasting so nothing’s incomplete
It’s easy being with you, sacred simplicity
As long as we’re together, there’s no place I’d rather be
