Moments to Treasure

Most shots I take of CJ are precious to me or there is almost always a reason why they are so called treasured pictures (this week's Mommy Moments theme) regardless of the quality. I selected a few pictures for my MM entry today.

In 2007 I flew Mozart, my 'eldest son' home to PI and took the younger son Cj back to Bangkok. Mama and I exchanged wards :) This is one of our early family online chats

Summer 2009: I just love it when he shows me his latest antics. Thanks to Auntie Chette for capturing this moment

He's growing virtually half a centimeter an hour and I'm trying to hold on to his being a baby by carrying him like this

He's got slight fever but due to our yayaless situation during weekends, I had to take him with me on my chores. Despite not feeling well, he endured an hour following me around while I sorted my european travel insurance.

When I gaze at peace on his face while he is asleep, I feel at peace too

(I posted this pic on a different meme but) this is one of my favorite treasures

Hi Hazel, I like the story when Cj followed you and accompanied you while you were arranging your insurance! My kids are like that, too! Di bale nang pagod sila, bsta kasama lang nila ako, ok lang. It's so touching talaga.

I like this post, makes me remember my good times with my kids, also their keeping up with me. Makes me appreciate their love they're giving me, which I don't notice sometimes. :)

thanks, Thom :)

Yes, Anya, Mommy Moments is a fun meme

Sassy Mom, thanks for the invite
Hazel said…
Hi Rose, yeah it is and happy me over that :-)

ay totoo yan Beth, sometimes I'm
about to believe he's so naughty he doesn't love me, but when he shows this kind of behavior of following me anywhere without minding what he feels (tired or sick), it makes me think being a mom to him is all worth it

Remember that 1995 Sense and Sensibility scene in which dashing Mr. Willoughby recklessly drives a phaeton around town with Marianne Dashwood? The novel was published in 1811.  Fast drag your imagination to 2011 and the two lovers are today's rich hunk and a happy-go-lucky, attractive chick speeding on say, a Lamborghini Reventon. In Pride and Prejudice, obsequious Mr Collin declares, "she (Lady Catherine de Bough) is perfectly amiable, and often condescends to drive by my humble abode in her little phaeton and ponies." pha·e·ton   (f -tn) n. 1.

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility . Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author. Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare . Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen 's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S . As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 end
