On Promises


Today I made my kids happy. I fulfilled a promise I made several days ago. Now I can sleep soundly without having to worry about breaking his heart.

During the past week, it was mentioned to me by the organizers of Baby Expo Philippines which yours truly is a proud media partner that there will be a mommy bloggers meet. Having known the schedule, I tried to coordinate my schedule with J as well as my cousin. But since both of them were busy, I am left with no choice but to decline. But on a second thought, I made a promise to a young boy that I am bound to keep. Since the Press Con’s venue was at the Big Red Barn at Fun Ranch, the invited guests are allowed to bring their kids.

But the idea of bringing the kids to an event means my attention will be divided into three; most especially I have two toddlers. It’s hard, yes. Emotionally and physically exhausting at some point. But right now, I try to practice positive parenting to my kids and avoid strain and promote love within the family.

The day I told him that I would take him to a play land, he couldn’t stop talking about it. He kept asking if I were to take him immediately after my announcement. He was very obedient during those waiting moments. Who am I not to give him a little reward and make him happy the very least I can do for him. So I decided to brave the storm.

He woke up early morning to remind me about it. I couldn’t break his heart anymore. So I prepared and get them ready. When we got there he wasn’t cranky at all. He was well behaved. It was a success, to say the least. They were so happy together with some other kids, happy moments that don’t happen everyday inside the four corners of our home.

Why do I have to fulfill a promise to a kid? Simple. I don’t want him to grow up thinking that promises are made to be broken. Why do I have to say this? I was drawn to believe to a simple promise that until this very day never realized. It made me stopped hoping for good things to happen. At some point in my life I have became a pessimistic person.

Now I know the end result of not keeping a word to your kids. It leaves them a scar that they won’t ever forget and that somehow you will regret. It may be simple yet it leaves them an unhappy thought in their life just like I did.
