MOMI LAUGHS & CRIES/ sweet gestures from Big Bunso

Sep 4, 2016 | Love, Only Berlin

A collection of sweet acts from my Big Bunso, now 10 years old.  He is still the same sweet guy and he also extends this kindness to his baby brother.

Sweet gestures on Polvoron

The school’s kind registrar gave Big Bunso two pieces of polvoron.   He ate one and gave the other to his mother.  He told her, smiling, “I know you like polvoron.  I’m sharing this with you, and I tried very hard not to give it to you in pieces.”

You are very much welcome, my Big Bunso.

Sweet gestures

I was in an out-of-town commitment for four days.  And for four days, I wasn’t able to kiss my boys, specially my Big Bunso whom I share the same bed with. I arrived home Friday night, too late a night to wake the boys up.  I just checked on them and tucked their blankets around them.

Something small caught my attention.  And that little something was resting beside my Bunso’s arm.

The following morning Big Bunso relayed to me that he missed his mama.  He saw his mama’s ID and decided to put it beside him so he could sleep better.  He also told me that he was aware that I have arrived already.  He felt the brush of my hair against his face and  smelled the old familiar scent of my hair.

It has always been a tough day at work.  Commuting is something very draining as well.  But I always look forward to coming home where my three kids wait for me.

We would check their notebooks,  answer their assignments, and   review the day’s lessons.  Sometimes, in the middle of our studying, I would stop and smile.

Sweet gestures: The instruction was to draw inside the circle the most important person in your life.

That is why in as much as possible, I do not want to whine.  I do not want to cry if I am exhausted and is about to lose my head.  Because my kids’ simple and generous gesture of thoughtfulness and gratefulness truly melts all the whining and exhaustion.  They always make me incredibly happy.  And that night, everything seems to be so light.

It might be because of tradition or  culture that most children would give their first salary to their parents.  Or it might be just for sentimental reasons that we reward our parents for their hardship in raising us and giving us good education.

Yesterday, my seven-year-old son gave me a bar of Vochelle cool mint dark chocolate.  He earned the chocolate by helping in the school office.  After his not-so-stressful work, he got the chocolate as a reward.

He gave the chocolate bar to me and said, “I worked hard for this.  and I want to give this chocolate to you because I worked hard for this and I know you love mint chocolates!”

Big Bunso:  Do you know, mama, why I always wake up early?

Momi Berlin:  Why?

Bunso:  Whenever we sleep, I always put my feet near yours so when I can’t feel your feet anymore, that means you’re already up. I will then wake up and join you for breakfast.

    So sweeeet! I am a new mom and as early as now, my 9 month old baby bunso is the sweetest! For moms like us, smiles, big hugs, cuddles are our stress-reliever. I hope and pray that as my boys grow, they’d still be sweet lil men, because they’ll always be my babies 🙂

      They will surely be the sweetest. Many say that kids imitate elders and their definition of things are based on how we portray them.

    What a thoughtful young man! I found tears springing to my eyes as I read this post. My kids are all grown up now but I remember how hard it was being a full time working Mum. You feel like you are missing out on so much. Hope your boy stays just as cute forever

    Super resonated with me, your posts and stories. I miss my kids all the time. I really do. And as for you, my friend, isn’t it really nice to have such wonderful kids who at random and unexpected times, show you love in the most extraordinary way?

    Your son is so sweet, natouch naman ako sa polvoron and ID. He knows your likes and he really missed you. With regard to first salary, ang alam ko naman give it to God (tithe).

    Super duper sweet! Just yesterday, I felt the same sweetness from my eldest. We were earing in a reastau and I was busy cutting up my slice of meat to share with them as we only have 1 order. After so many slices already, he asked me why I’m not eating, I said because I have to slice and share with you first. He then offered his slice to me. Awwww, melted! Which reminds me to post it on fb, lest my poor mommy memory fail me hehe.

    This is so sweet. Your son at an early age works at the school office and the first thing he buys from his hard earned money is for you. So touching <3 From your story, I can remember myself making my mom my entire world when I was a child and I'd give her little things to surprise her too. I miss my mom now.

      He used to stay at the school office because his class dismissal was earlier than his kuya. He waited for his kuya so they will be home together. I had work that year so no one would look after him at home. Yes, he is so sweet.

    Super sweet! Just how kids can be the sweetest? They show you love in the most unexpected ways. I can only imagine how they take away your tiredness from work by just smiling at you. Hehe you’re so lucky to have such sweet kids. 🙂

      He will surely be. Kids imitate their parents. They learn to hug because we hug them. They learn kiss because we do that to them. They know how to reciprocate.

    Your kids have always been so sweet to you. It’s so fulfilling to be a parent of these kids especially when you hear them say these to you. Right? We’ve been playing with our daughter too recently and she loves to sing The Wheels on The Bus. She suggests the person or the thing that is inside the bus and adds what that person says and then we sing for her.

    Ex. she wants Daddy… I sing, The daddy on the bus says, “I love you”(2x)(she fills up the words for the song). The daddy on the bus says I love you, all through the town.

    Makes my heart warm all the time. She knows she is loved very much.

      Kids could really feel our love even when they are small and clueless of things. And what a sweet way to bond with your daughter. I am imagining her cute giggles as she sings.

    That is so sweet that your child appreciates you being a great mom and even he is so tiny, he has that generosity in him and tend to help others. Don’t let him ever lose it!

    Simple gestures make the biggest impact, especially when done by kids! And they say that sons have a special bond with their mothers. Great job on raising such a compassionate son!

    Oh, my heart! I especially love the polvoron moment. I’m instilling the value of sharing in my son and while he shares (most often when urged hehe), I hope he’ll grow up to be a generous and kind person.

    Reply
    • momiberlin

      He will surely be a generous person. With your patience in teaching him plus seeing around him that everybodys generous, he will surely be one

      Haha. I have four boys and each time, I prayed real hard that the next baby will be a girl. But God must have greater plans for me thus blessed me with boys instead. Hello to the baby girl 🙂

    Ang sweet naman ng anak mo! I remember when I left my kids for a three-day trip. It was my first time ever to go without them but it was a team building event kasi. Paguwi ko, kumakanta na sila nung jingle ng nido na “you may be my mom but you’ll always be a buddy to me”…with matching tears! Ang dramaness! haha.

    Mukang sa lahat si Big Bunso ang pinakasweet no? I agree that the kids imitate what their parents do, kaya kami ni hubby ingat when in front of Cloud.

      True on ingat when in front of the kids. The other two big boys have their ways to show their sweetness but yes, the Big Bunso is so expressive. Hihi
