A thread I've been following recently in my e-group sparked some questions in my mind - are we happy ?
I didn't have think hard to find out what my answer was, I only had to look at my son to see the main reason and proof that I am happy. So that leaves the husband.
Last night, I ambushed him with that question, "Hun, happy ka ba ? Are you happy with our life ?"
He took a few seconds to think and said "Yes, masaya ako. Minsan lang, sobrang kulit nitong ni Swe-cha chaka hindi ako masaya pag ginigising mo ako nang maaga."
[translation: he is happy but sometimes he finds it difficult when our son is being overly rambunctious and he does not like it when I wake him up early in the morning]
I prodded him some more, "Come on, be honest. Aren't you the least bit proud of your son's kakulitan ?"
He thought some more and smiled, "yes, basta hindi ako mag-aalaga, proud akong makulit siya."
