It’s father’s day today and I want to dedicate this post to my Poopsie dearest. Happy Father’s day PAPA! I love you so much, you know that right? I will always value what you have taught me about everything. Much of who I am is because of how you and Mama raised me so thank you for that. I hope to pass on the gift of being “bata ni rene” to my own children someday, growing up believing in yourself and that you can do anything you put your mind to.
I always get a little weepy when I think about Poopsie, I don’t know why. Although it may seem like we have our misunderstandings I do love him immensely and I’m always thankful of how lucky we are to have him as a father. Papa taught me how to ride a bike (“dire diretso lang”), drive a car (“hinay hinay lang!”), shoot an airgun (“steady lang”), take photos (“d ka mag hulag/ginhawa”), be sociable (“migu-miguha lang ah”), and believe in myself (“bata ka ni Rene!”). We were a little bit spoiled, but not so much. We were disciplined properly, and not hurt physically. We were not super rich, but Papa provided what we needed and what we wanted. Papa is a cool guy and a good person, I am proud to be his daughter.
They say that having bad parents will make you a good parent when you have kids. That worries me because I have awesome parents! Poops, I will do everything in my power to be the best mother to my kids someday, that will be my gift to you.
