7pm in the kitchen, me and Lizzy.
I was taking magnesium.
Lizzy: what are you eating mama?
Lizzy: why are you taking medicine?
Me: because I am getting old.
Lizzy: I don’t want you to die. Who will cook food if you die?
Me: well… you ask papa to find another mama who can cook.
Lizzy: okay. I’ll tell him that.
It made me wonder if I ever leave this world, what will my girls remember of me? My guess is they would probably say: mama cooks the best food in the world, she runs and read a lot, she doesn’t like messy house. She takes us to travel. She is there to protect us if we don’t feel well.
that is… I think that would be their image of me. I’ll ask Sofia to confirm it today 🙂
Taking a step back and think how my girls see me remind me to live my values.
My husband, my friends, my relatives will probably have a different image of me. Isn’t interesting that we show different side of us to different people in our lives? Not intentionally, just happens that way.
On a separate note, I booked 2 beach trips for our summer break! I don’t think we can leave the Philippines during girls school summer break, which is two months long. It is depressing to know we don’t have big trips planned, but at least we can do smaller trips within the Philippines. Given that flights and hotels are relatively cheap at the moment, I made the decision to book two trips, one to Cebu and one to Siargao. I showed the girls travel vlogs of these places and they are super excited, so do I! 😉
Now we have 3 upcoming trips to beaches: March (Coron), June (Cebu), and July (Siargao). Yay!!!
