Our Mother’s Day

I did not want to post this until our Mother’s Day was over. So this is how our day went…

1. Had to leave to meet my witnesses for today’s hearing and to see the “scene of the crime.”

2. Bought children their regular rations (you know, milk, diapers, insect repellent, etc.)

3. Played video games the rest of the afternoon.

This was supposed to be the first visit of that girl to her children. But she texted me that she had a fever and may not come. When I told this to Bea, she breathed a sigh of relief. Tells you something how she feels about her mother, doesn’t it?

But knowing her for so long, she probably went on a drinking spree the night before and was just anticipating the hang-over. Believe me, I have covered for her work lots of times with that “fever” excuse. When I relayed this news to Bea’s yaya, we both laughed because we knew that was just an excuse. And a lame one at that. We all know her equation: Lagat equals Lasing (Fever equals Hang-over).

It’s a shame she’s still using that even on her own children. Shows you what kind of a mother she is and why I have sole custody over my children to take her place. My children deserve better.

Anyway, my sister and nieces came over late afternoon and my children had a wonderful time playing with their cousins. It was a good thing I bought a ton of fish crackers during my grocery run…

Bea gave my sister two, count ’em, two mother’s day cards that she made herself. She said the other one’s from Nico… Such a sweet kid.

I was happy for my children. Well at the same time, I pity them because their lives will never be normal. At the very least, every Mother’s Day henceforth…

    Hey Atty. Punzi,

    Heart-breaking naman ang blog mo. I am sure you know that the strength you show your kids is very important. However, hope you move forward in forgiveness and understanding. Time heals wound.

  8. Ano ba yan! Dapat siguro mag-inuman tayo…kung umiinom ka.

    Kung hindi, mag-DDR na lang tayo sa Ever Commonwealth. Magandang exercise yon… (heheheh!)
