Once i told myseld that when i have a kid age-ing 10 years old, that's a sign i'm really old. Migi turned 10, and i let it passed. And, i told myself again that when i have kid who will be wearing long pants as school uniform, it's that legit sign i'm already old.
And, now it will be happening.
I dunno if it's my getting "old" that i'm resisting or it's my kids no-longer-babies i resist.
But then i'm not really the sentimental mother who wishes their kids to be with them forever, or who follows the "be with your kids always because they'll only have 1 childhood" or who wants to be the only person most adored and most loved by their children.
So i'm trying to think what am i really trying to hold on to getting sentimental watching my kids growing up?!?
I love that they're big enough to get all their school supplies while i just stand on the side waiting for them to finish.
But i don't like seeing some "unnecessary stuff" they picked up, and their choices of items that can be on the expensive side. They already have a mind of their own - i guess that's what i'm resisting? :)
And that with 3 kids having their own choices of what to watch/listen, i'm getting a rival with the earphones in this house and probably with other stuff soon. And, somehow, they can now tell which one is better. So i'm left with the "lata-sounding" earphones.
So today, i no longer have much choice but to open the very last earphone i'd been saving away from my kids.
