“Everybody calls me young, beautiful, and wonderful, Am I? Look at my hair, my lips, my red cheeks, and a pair of blinkering eyes. I remember somebody says that I look like my mother but that was when she was young. Now, I am much lovelier than she is!”
My daughter Erin had her 6th birthday yesterday and we are celebrating it in Boracay! Yep, that’s why we only had a simple birthday celebration yesterday. It will also served as my two kids’ post-graduation celebration, a belated birthday celebration for my Mother-In Law (though she cannot be with us because she’s in Las Vegas) and an advanced birthday celebration for my mom.

This was the first part of your declamation piece and I know we both can truly relate on this. Remember how we often hear comments from people that you looked exactly just like me but a lot prettier of course. My heart melted when you were asked who between your parent is your look-alike and you will proudly say that it’s me, your Mommy!
