mommy moments

I already mentioned before that my almost-five-year-old son likes giving me letters and love notes. When he asks for his coloring pens, crayons, ballpens, etc., he will always have something for me. This was the latest I-love-you note he gave me. He made this the other day after he felt I’m not mad at him anymore.


You see, from noon until afternoon last Wednesday, I gave him the cold shoulder. That’s because he wouldn’t cooperate. I have a lot of backlog at work, and I need a little bit of peace and quiet in the house to make up for all that I’ve missed.

I told him not once but many times not to be too noisy while he played but he never listened. He actually made more noise after that, which made me really upset. When I cooled off, he approached me and told me he’s sorry and he gave me this note; he asked his yaya to spell the words for him.


When he doesn’t write love notes for Mommy, he simply draws whatever he wants and puts “To: Mommy, From: Justin” just like this one.


My son is a sweet boy. He may be hardheaded sometimes, which brings out the monster in me, but he has a way of softening my hardened heart, and that makes me love him even more.

  1. Judging from his works of art in the last post and his “mood” that you just described, I think your boy is a “expressive”—-and creative…most creative people do not follow standards. At a young age, they display a little stubbornness and independence because.
    He is such a sweet boy but because he has his own way of doing things , he sometimes can be stubborn at this age….and those moods and sentiments can be expressed through his art—that is why he is artistic…..he is a talented little boy.

  2. How sweet. Just realize when he is older being strong-will, this is going to be a
    wonderful quality. No one will be able to push him around or just get him to do what they want him to do. The characteristic that are wonderful for an adult is always hard to deal with with a child.

  3. hearing our kids say they are “sorry” is a common thing BUT receiving a note that says it they are, softens the heart of any “monster mom”!

    such a sweet boy! good job mommy!

    thanks for visiting mine 🙂

  4. these sort of letters really soften any moms heart 🙂

    by the way, theme for tomorrow is a dad’s first photo with baby or what was dad’s reaction when he found out that he is going to be a daddy 🙂

  5. Kids really have a way to bringing out the monster mom in us, and at the same time, melt our hearts and make our days complete 🙂
    Nice going Justin!

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
