Count On Me

You can count on me like 1,2,3 I’ll be there.. that’s what friends are supposed to do… I really get this part of Bruno Mars’ song “Count On Me”.

I must admit, Kap always ALWAYS pulls through for me. Even though I sometimes trust him the least, I’m ashamed to admit. ;P

Most of the time I panic & go to friends first for help on important stuff. Feel ko mas kaya nila ako matulungan. They make promises & assurance like “ako ang bahala” or “oo parang kapatid ko si __ & __ malakas tayo diyan!” or “sagot kita“.. only to realize they can’t do sheez. Nada. All talk.

Well, once again, my strong silent type knight in shining armor pulled through for me. He not only got our Lovey into a new school even though the application was supposedly closed, but my babyson (who is an incoming junior) as well! YAY! m/

Ano na kids.. Animo???
Let’s DO this!!

I’m always a basket case when I ask my hunny for a favor coz he is SUCH a slowpoke. I never know if he’s working on my request coz he bids his time & he’s so quiet. I’m an ora-orada kind of gal. Impatient, always rushing, always under pressure. I want fast result & I need to have a step-by-step account of things. Meet the O.C. me! ;P

My Kap, on the other hand takes it slowly but surely. Pwede syang heneral sa hukbo talaga. He strategizes & plans & slowly worms his way towards the goal. Super kaduper tagal but he does the job in the end. Ako yung private na sugod lang ng sugod. Hence, pahiya ako lagi, LELs! Honey. Thank you. What more can i say? You da best! :-*

Of course, God has a big part. My prayer is always.. Lord please I want. While my hunny’s prayer goes.. Your will Lord, not ours. He is always the calm to my storm. This is why Kap is literally my BETTER half. ;)) and which is why God listens to his prayer more haha.

Now the only hurdle I have to face is the strong resistance from the kids. Especially from the boy. Hay! The girl is coming around –mas mabilis kausap, masunurin. But the boy? Tears & screams & threats get me nowhere. I hate that we practice democracy in our family! @_@
I’ve been having plenty of one-on-ones with my babyson, trying to put some sense into him. But I understand that he needs time to take this all in & absorb the thought. It is a big decision after all. I don’t want him to think of this as a punishment. Because it’s not. He has been so diligent -a good student, a good son. I am doing this not to punish him, but to give him better & more choices in life.
Bribing him gets me nowhere, lels! :P
I’m comparing the 2 schools to him with 2 buckets. 1 bucket is small. The other one is big. His life in his small school now is like the small bucket where opportunities are few. His growth is stunted, limited. While the big bucket represents his life in the new school. More people to meet, more chances to take, more road to explore. Everything is bigger.. better.. brighter. That’s what I’m hoping he will see & realize. Soon. Coz I’m on a ticking deadline.
I understand that he’s anxious about leaving his old home, his old friends, his comfort zone. But we have to keep moving in life so we don’t get stuck & rot. Life is about taking chances & opportunities.
Ultimately, it’s his decision. I hate that it has to be. But I respect him enough for it to be. Either way babyson, trust that you can always count on me. Simply coz I love you! <3
