As soon as she started giving me monetary money when I was in 6th grade, she would tell me not to spend everything, especially on the things that I do not need. Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want.

TLC : A's crying

Election time is near and a lot of mobile campaign units pass by here and there. Proclamation rallies, house to house campaign and all sorts of exposure every candidates will do.

LJ : A, top (stop) it cry, mama upters (upstairs). Saying in a soft manner.
A : Still crying.
LJ : A, top (stop) it cry. Mama, upters (upstairs).
A : Intensely crying still.
LJ : Tita! top (stop) dance! ee up! (switch it off). He meant to switch off the radio because A is still crying.

We were having dinner A seated on her high chair and LJ seated beside A when A suddenly cried. 

LJ : Oh why cry A? Top (stop) it.
A : Still crying.
LJ : Top (stop) it A cry, mama here. Saying in a soft manner while pointing towards me.

Oh, I am so proud to have a sweet son who looks after her little sister despite being cranky also oftentimes.
