They'd come home from school saying "mommy! we have good news and bad news! which one do you want to hear first?" I'd always choose the good news first. One time Roel said "the good news is I scored highest in Science mommy!" "so what is the bad news?" I quipped. "Well, the bad news is, my score lacked a point to pass the exam! I love you mommy!!!" Before I could utter another word he showered me with kisses on the cheeks, non stop, believe me, non stop! as in I had to beg him to stop being tickled to the point of wanting to pee haha....
There is another thing that is driving me nuts raising my little men. They are hooked to spooky tales! During school break they'd hunt for scary movies and engage in hair raising, goose bumps forming movie marathon with their twice as thriller eager dad. They'd be running around the house at night screaming with fear at the slightest sound they hear and would shriek at the sight of their own shadows afterward. Aaahhh but I love them to the highest heavens that I can not find the heart to say no when they'd ask me to buy a horror booklet and the like haha...the hubby would wink at me and whisper in my ear "come on, say yes...that will help turn them into real men"....The hubby is better at training them into becoming real gentlemen because I must admit that I have a tendency to overprotect them. These days, my thirteen year old loves watching a paranormal files television series that seems to be feeding the skeptic in him. I'd sit beside him when I am not busy and enjoy watching his facial expressions more than the screen. He is starting to have his own intellectual opinions on certain phenomenon which I think has come from their unique dad and son video watching bonding.
Having two boys for kiddos is quite a challenge. They have mastered the art of playing sweet jokes on me. They are great actors making me laugh, and furious and joyful all the the same time with their pranks.

I spend more time surfing the net and was fascinated when I found Roadtrip-a-Matic that offers
