While I was growing up, I had a fair share of embarrassing moments with my mom. Well, before I find it embarrassing but today, as I have become a mom myself, I find myself doing them and I consider them endearing moments.
Here is a list of some embarrassing memories with my mom yet I find myself doing today:
1. When my mom gave me kisses when I was already in my pre-teens in front of my friends or other people. She did not just do this once but most of the time even before I entered college. Before, I really find it embarrassing but when I became a mom myself, I often find myself doing it to my three children. I finally understand that in a mom’s eyes, her children technically never grow old.
2. When my mom starts joining our conversation. I find myself in a very embarrassing situation when she starts to talk to my friends and share about me. Now, I find myself doing it to my teen. Before, I thought it was embarrassing but I just realized that my mom did it to get to know more about my friends and be an engaging parent. And yes, even with my friends right now, my mom is still engaging. She talks to my friends who are moms already and even to my children’s friends.
3. When my mom starts to talk about me to other people. Whenever my mom had the opportunity to talk about me, she talks a lot about me! I may not find myself that great as a child but in my mom’s, she talks about me both my small and big achievements. She even finds positive in my negative moments. Now, as a mom, I do that too. I talk about my children to other people (not strangers) on how they are. I find happiness if I talk about my kids to others. It makes me proud myself.
As Mother’s Day approaches, I can’t help but remember those moments with my mom. They might be embarrassing for me when I was a child but when I grew up, I realized those were endearing moments.
How about you guys? Are there moments you find it embarrassing before but you find yourself doing to your children today? Can you share about those moments?
Speaking about Mother’s Day, I just learned that Jollibee Chickenjoy and Jolly Spaghetti are now made more affordable for everyone. It will be much easier for me to treat my mom and the whole family because of the affordable price it has now. A one-piece Chickenjoy with Jolly Spaghetti SOLO from P117, now P99 – that’s P18 in savings! And a one-piece Chickenjoy with Jolly Spaghetti Value Meal from P122, now P109, saving me P13! I am sure that I will be treating my mom and the while family with their favorite langhap-sarap pair with Jollibee and enjoy big savings this Mother’s Day and probably talk more about embarrassing yet endearing moments!
