Forever Mine…Valentines!

Valentines Day is here and I am very excited since this would be Kevin’s first time getting involved in making Valentines Day cards and getting territorial about chocolates. I have already bought some fun crafts and fine goodies for him so that he could have a memorable first Valentines Day. We have a cute card for Daddy and Kevin is so excited to write on it and present it to him this evening!   Next year, this time Kevin will be going to school and there will be even more activities for him to get involved in various celebrations including special days like this.

He is very artistic and creative already and I can only imagine his inquisitive mind making discoveries in his own little ways at the learning curves he would face down the road. I have all his artwork and crafts which he makes from his play school and home in a box tucked away, safely. Time to time, I go open the box and look in amazement at the colors that he created in there. He is very absorbent and receptive to his surroundings and like a sponge, he accepts the colors he finds in nature and tries to reproduce it in a plain white paper.  It is a pleasure to watch him thrive,  grow and discover.  Would he be a painter?An inventor may be or a writer like Mommy?….I don’t know…But I know that he is endowed with some kind of creativity and in time, it will present itself in him.

I am still trying to figure out what  Krista’s interests are and where her abilities would take her…Sometimes, I see her very keen in observing some object, let’ say, a toy,  with great concentration.  She could stare at a toy, or someone or something for a quite a long time as if she is trying to deduce an interesting theory or thinking of the analytic possibilities of it. Krista is also very calm, so that could mean, she could be logical too (which is totally ‘not me’ at all).

Some of you might think that I am over thinking this and that my kids are way too small to be worried about this aspect at all. It sounds funny to me as well that I am already picturing my kids as grown-ups and fussing over their future when there is a lifetime left to figure things out.  I agree with it but could not help getting fascinated by the little miracles that I gave birth to and can’t wait to know where their life would take them eventually. I speculate every day about the big picture that life has in store for both of them and it gives me goosebumps and aches in my heart for reasons unknown. I realize one day they will leave me to make lives of their own- to have their own future, their own Valentines Days and other celebrations which I get to watch as just a bystander hovering on the threshold of their life..or will I get to indulge myself with them just as they were my little ones, once? I don’t know.


 Nothing is sure in life except the moment that we live in, the present. What is for certain at this time is that Kevin and Krista are my greatest blessings ever and my life has changed in every possible way after they were born. I am going to treasure this Valentine’s Day to my heart by celebrating my beautiful children…I  thank God fervently for gifting me with not just one, but two Valentines who would remain mine forever… Happy Valentines Day, My Loves’ !!!

  3. I love the way you describe Kevin’s talent and enthusiasm for colors and art. So precious!
    They are never too young to analyze their futures. I do it all the time with my two. Babe (4) is amazing at putting puzzles together and has excelled at the task since he was 9 months old. In his daycare at 15 months old, they had brought puzzles from the kindergarten room to see if he could figure those out and he blew them away at immediately knowing where each piece should be placed. Hun and I both agree that he is an engineering kind of person, so he can go far, as long as he continues on this path. I’ve also said that he would be a comedian or some entertainer because of his ability to make people laugh. Love (6) has always had a fondness of Art, and as a toddler most of it was on her body, so we joked she would grow up to be a tattoo artist. However, she is very caring and nurturing, always trying to help others learn when they can’t seem to get it. I think she would be an amazing teacher, although her dreams of being a veterinarian would be great for her too. πŸ™‚
