Belated happy mother’s day, mommies!
Do you still have a Mother’s Day hangover? For sure, tambak ang gawain niyo because you “rested” for one day last Sunday. Hahaha! I’m right ano? That’s okay. The important thing is that you were able to get that rest, got spoiled and were able to spend your day with your mag-aama.
Very early last Sunday, I felt Anika jerk awake beside me. And then, I saw her run out of the bedroom. Akala ko may sunog. I didn’t mind her and fell back to sleep. After a little while (feels like it), tumabi naman sa akin si Sombrero. Sarap ng cuddle which would have led sana to a sexy time if not for Anika’s soft but very persistent knocks on our bedroom door.
Alvin told me to pretend sleeping and opened the door.
She was whispering, “Is Nanay awake already?”
ALVIN: Not yet. Go play outside.
Anika sat on the sofa chair beside my side of the bed and said she didn’t want to go out of the room. She said she will wait until I wake up.
Nagbuntong hininga ang Alvin. Sexy time postponed to a later date.
ALVIN: Gising na yang Nanay mo.
I opened my eyes and Anika jumped from her seat!
ANIKA: Nanay! Happy Mother’s Day! Close your eyes and come with me!
I closed my eyes and let her drag me out of the bed. I fell and banged my head on the wall on our way to our dining table. When she said to open my eyes, I saw this:
She even got the Quezo de Bola cheesecake that I bought the day before and placed candles on them. I do not know were she got the candles.
I cried. Sabi ko sa sarili ko, ang swerte ko na I have Anika.
I took kasi a pregnancy test before I fell back to sleep when Anika woke up that morning. My period is delayed and I have been feeling dizzy and nauseated. I told Alvin about this. Sabi ko baka over fatigue ito or tra-trangkasuhin ako or buntis ako. Di ba I asked him to buy me a pregnancy test? He didn’t buy me. I had to force him to buy me nung Saturday night on our way home from my in laws’ house. Sabi ni Pineda, early morning ako magtest.
Nagmumurang one line ang result ng pregnancy test.
Gusto ko din magmura.
I told Alvin it’s negative when I went out of the bathroom.
ALVIN: Sabi ko na sayo, wag ka na umasa eh.
Sabi ko nga. Bakit pa ba kasi ako umasa?
I cried during Anika’s Mother’s Day surprise because I saw her looking at me very, very happy. I have her. I cried because there were so many of you who were supporting and wishing for me to be pregnant too. Halo halong feeling of disappointment, gratefulness, feeling touched and giving up kaya ako naiyak.
I took Anika to the bathroom to show her the pregnancy test.
ME: If it shows two red lines, then I’m pregnant. But if it’s just one line, I’m not pregnant.
Anika saw the one line.
ANIKA: Sabi ko na sayo Nanay, mataba ka lang eh.
Hindot na batang to!
I don’t know what I did that morning while Alvin slept more after breakfast. We got ready to have lunch somewhere. Alvin and Anika took me to Sofitel Philippine Plaza to have lunch.
By the way, Anika and I wore matching dresses especially for Mother’s Day. Wowa even bought her a bag similar to what I had.
Spiral was fully booked so we ate at Le Bar.
It was perfect because it wasn’t crowded and Le Bar had a very homey and peaceful ambiance. Food was expensive but delicious. Minsan lang naman daw sabi ni Alvin and I thank him so much for taking us to lunch. Alvin commented na dati dati daw, Dampa lang, masayang masaya na ako. Sabi ko ganun pa din naman ako eh. Siya lang ang nagsabi na dito kami kumain. You know, it’s not really the food or the experience of dining in a hotel eh. It’s being together and laughing with one another while eating yung gustong gusto ko.
We went home after that and spent the rest of the day in bed together.
So that’s Mother’s Day 2017 edition for our family.
How was yours? =)
