“Childhood is like being drunk, everyone remembers what you did, except you.” Haha I remember those time that my sister told me that when I was a little, I ate my own pupu and I was like.. Yack!! Really?? Haha.. You know the feeling na “can I go back to that time and watch myself doing messy things?” (I can’t imagine. :-D)
Then the kasabihan na “pag nananahimik ang bata, kabahan ka na!” (Laughing) Well, everyone have their own childhood memories and those memories will surely remembered.
I also remember our sari-sari store that time when I was the one who go inside just to get or pick the “paninda or the tsitserya” that I want to eat then put those on our room and eat them. Haha.. Our mother will never know the pandudukot that I did if my brother wouldn’t tell it to my Mom but yeah, my brother was very honest kasi syempre bata “hindi nagsisinungaling then my mom knows it and then the palo will follow. Haha..
Imagine the difference between the kids back then to kids nowadays is a way to far on our experience. Kids who born in the year of 90’s are very happy just like playing on our backyards, playing chinese garter, tago-taguan, tumbang lata, moro-moro, teks, jolens etc.. The kids today have their own gadgets and expose to radiation already at the young age.
Did you know that 0-6 yrs old kids need stimulation, but if the child is not interacting with other people but using a cellphone, the child may be impaired in his ability to communicate and become accustomed to speech that’s why or this is one of the reason why I’ve downloaded the nursery rhymes on our Tv rather than give the phone to Amara (daughter) and let her choose whatever she wants to watch and there’s a time limit also. We, as parents we need to be very strict when it comes to discipline our children. But sometimes due to our busy schedule, we forgot to remind them that “oh! kanina ka pa jan nanonood ha! Maya maya tama na yan” while on our time, our parents remind us that “wag kang uuwi ng madumi ha o wag na wag kang uuwi ng umiiyak!” hahahaha
That sad moment when you realize your childhood is over and their dark forms are larger than life, because memories like that grow along with your body, so that adults from our childhood always resemble an extinct race of old gods, still towering over us. Well, I can say that my childhood memories are amazing; I had freedom in every way – but I see everything from a different perspective now that I live outside. 🙂
When you finally go back to your old hometown, you find it wasn’t the old home you missed but your childhood, your childhood memories…
