In a few hours time, my little girls classmates, schoolmates and teachers are gonna board a bus and take a tour around Manila. The kids will surely love the places and sights they will be seeing; and the parents will capture as much as they can with video recorders, cameras and even with their own memory the priceless joy they will see in their child’s face and expression.
No, I am not envious.
At last minute, we were told Ayex WAS NOT TAKEN OUT of the list of attendees. And that we cannot cancel anymore because the school has already paid. When I picked her up at school, I was informed by their adviser that she IS NOT in the list and it is ok if she does not join. And so we asked her again. She said she will just join. But I know, come morning, she will change her mind and might even throw tantrums. Plus, that is not within this week’s program and there is very little space for alteration. And I just came from a bad case of flu. Simply put, I am not in the mood for it. I know it is for my daughter. But we already visited the place they are going and we already saw the attraction they picked. So on our way home, I asked her again. Finally, she said no. Of course that is accompanied by a long list of conditions including a tub of ice cream after dinner (which she already got)!
Next year, honey, we’ll be ready for a field trip. For now, mommy has to plan when we are visiting the other places we have not seen. I hope finding cheap family deals is as easy as finding www.mega.co.uk discount codes. Mommy has to also fix our schedule because daddy hates driving around the metro when Christmas is nearing because the traffic becomes jammed everywhere. Promise, we will visit the places they will go to and we will make memories too, as a family.
