habang di pa sya pumapalag sa iyong mga yakap....
kargahin mo na sya at ihele,
habang kasya pa sya sa iyong bisig....
paliguan mo na sya at bihisan,
habang hindi pa nya kaya gawin iyun mag-isa....
laruin mo na sya at iduyan,
habang natutuwa pa sya sa iyong mga ngiti...
tabihan mo na sya sa pagtulog,
habang hanap pa nya ang iyong mga yakap...
isama mo na sya sa iyong pupuntahan,
habang humahabol pa sya sa iyong pag-alis...
turuan mo na syang maglakad at magsalita,
habang nakikinig pa sya sayo...
basahan mo na sya at kantahan,
habang naaaliw pa sya sa yong himig...
gawin mo na ang lahat ng iyan,
dahil saglit lang sya sanggol...
ang dati mong kinakarga,
ilang sandali lang ay tatakbo na.
ang dati mong hinehele,
ilang sandali lang ay nakakatulog na mag-isa.
ang dating humahabol sa iyong pag-alis,
ilang sandali lang ay iyo ng hahabulin.
ang dating hindi marunong magsalita,
ilang saglit lang ay marami ng nasasabi.
sa isang kurap, isang iglap,
ang dating sanggol, ngayon ay bata na.
at marahil ngayon ay alam mo na,
saglit lang sya bata......

well, the long wait is over.....she's finally having a baby! her own baby to cuddle, to spoil, to love, just like what she did with tristan, jason and nathan. there is probably no better word to describe how she feels at the moment, now that she was finally blessed with her own little one. and there is no doubt as to how good of a mother she would be. after having taken care of 3 babies years ago, she's finally taking care of her own, and what better timing than now when tristan, jason and nathan are babies no more. (but of course they would be forever her babies as what she would always say.) i am certain that mae would be a very loving mother, a very caring parent, a very wonderful mom.....and while she enjoys the big nine months, we are all filled with excitement to see our new baby. even tristan and jason are both excited to meet their new cousin, wishing on the side that it'll be a boy (well sorry my little ones, but i'm wishing hard that it'll be a girl!). it really doesn't matter, boy or girl, what's impportant is.....she's havin' a baby.....finally!

tastes like coffee is yahoo group that i have created years ago for me and my girlfriends (bing, bubbles, din, jap, jayann, riza, sheila and sheng). so what's with the name you might ask.... coffee has been an unspoken symbol of our friendship that dates more than a decade ago, high school was when it all started. early on for most of us, but it was only later in the senior year that we all got together and realized, we have one hell of a group! coming from different sections in early high school, the bond between us wasn't that strong in the beginning. we all knew each other, hung out for a few times together, but we had other circles of friends. i, in particular was the one so far different from all of my girlfriends. (i can almost hear sheila saying why in the background!) it was not until the senior year, when sheila, sheng, bubbles and i were all in the same class that things started to fall into place. the rest of us were in different classes. but that didn't stop us from banging that year. from cheerleading competitions to group declamation (sabayang pagbigkas) to first dates to first boyfriends, we were all there right beside each other. we had so much fun back in high school when life was much easier.
it wasn't too long though that our ways parted for a while. college was such a busy time for all of us. trying to stay focused on our courses, keeping our feet grounded on the real world. we tried to maintain the contact, but time just flies so fast, before we knew it, we seemed so far apart. some had kids, others had boyfriends, and a few moved far it was just difficult to keep contact with. but we did maintain the friendship, seldom calls and a few times of get-togethers kept it alive. it was only until the early 2000's that we all got back to our feet and realized that we had one another. for a while we went on our own paths but i guess true friendship brought us back together. so why coffee? well because it was through coffee dates that we were reminded we had true friends. when someone was sad and down, we talked about it over coffee...when someone was happy and proud, we shared about it over coffee...when someone had something big to say, we all listened over coffee...so needless to say how much our coffee dates brought us back, and closer, together. more than friends, we are now each other's families. and so now that we are again back on our own ways, with some of us being away in other countries, while others are busy with their own lives, we know that we are never far apart, we know that we are never forgotten, we know that we have each other to hold on to, we know that we have each other to go back to, we know that we have each other come what may....and we know all these because it tastes like coffee....

here are 10 conversations between me and my little ones...conversations that tell me they're little no more....
1. Tristan: "Mom, i need new briefs, the ones i have are all tight now."
Me: "Really?" (as if I don't have a clue he has grown already!)
2. Jason: "Mommy look, I didn't have to fold my pants!" (with a smile on his face!)
Me: "Amazing!" (with a sigh of relief that he is finally growing!)
3. Me: "We're going to the grocery, who wants to come?"
Tristan and Jason: (no answer, both silent!)
4. Me: "Hey look, aren't these shirts nice"
Jason: "Mommy can you please stop buying the same shirt all the time?"
5. Tristan: "Can we go out today?"
Me: "Do you want to watch a movie?"
Jason: "No, can we go shopping?"
6. Jason: "Kuya, check that out!"
Me: "Oh that's a nice car!"
Tristan: "No mom, he meant the girls!"
7. Tristan: "Mom can I ask you something?"
Tristan: "When am I allowed to have a girlfriend?"
Tristan: "I'm serious mom."
Me: "And I'm serious too!"
8. Jason: "Mommy watch this commercial quick!"
Me: "Why, do you like that snack?"
Jason: "Not the snack mommy! I like the pants and the shirt that guy is wearing."
9. Me: "Do you want a happy meal? It has a batman toy in it!"
Tristan and Jason: (stares at me sharply and walks away!")
and finally...this last one made my heart say, you have to let them go and spread their wings, they're little no more....
10. Me: "Jason be careful, don't run it's slippery!"
Tristan: "Don't worry mom, I got his back!"
