My Daughter, My Bestfriend

The #FabSkye is 4. She's more makulit. More opinionated. Di ka na nga mananalo sa kanya sa discussion kasi laging may sagot.

But I honestly love this stage. Coz now, I get to really enjoy our time together. She would always say that I'm her bestfriend. (Well, aside from all the other bestfriends she has.) But at least, I'm her best best friend daw and I really wish we could remain that way kahit teenager na sya.

I wish she would still want to hang out with me. Watch movies with me. I hope she would still want me to do her make up (Oh wag nyo ko i-judge! Gusto nya magpa make up eh. May kid-safe make up naman sya.) and play dress up with me. I wish she would still want to Netflix and chill with me and eat microwaved popcorn.

I wish she would still want to shop with me. And dine out. 

I really try to spend as much time with my daughter as possible so she'd grow up thinking I'm still a cool mum and she won't shut me out pag teenager na sya.

Sometimes, I feel like we only get to enjoy our kids until a certain age. Parang after that, border nalang sila sa bahay. Ayoko ng ganun. I want to have a close relationship with my daughter. Pero ayoko naman na tropa tropa nalang talaga yung treatment nya sa akin at wala ng takot.

To be honest, it is really difficult to find balance. I wanna be strict but not too strict. I wanna be her best friend forever but I also wanna mother her. Most days, I honestly don't know what to do.

But I guess motherhood, most of the time, is all about following your heart and your instincts. I'm just so happy that at least, my daughter is happy. And her happiness is always my priority.
