Growing Critters and Real Critters

Despite the heavy rains and howling winds yesterday, we went to Antipolo (coming from Valenzuela) to celebrate the 9th birthday of my beloved nephew Louis.

I was like a surrogate parent to him. My brother and his wife used to work abroad, and they left him to us when he was about 4 months old and just went home every 6 months. They finally stayed here for good when Louis or Motti (as we fondly call him) was 6 years old. So for the most part of his infancy until his pre-school years, I was mostly taking care of him.

Admittedly, since I was in college during that time, I hated the responsibility. I wanted to party on the weekends but I can't because I'm taking care of a baby. He was actually such a joy to take care of, it's just frustrating for me that my gimik times were affected but I have learned so much from taking care of him. 

That experience taught me how to take care of my own when I first had Wolf. I wasn't a fumbling first-time mom because I already know how to take care of a baby. What's also nice is that now that Motti is all grown up, he helps me now in taking care of Wolf. :)

My wish for him is that he grows up to be an accomplished individual. He is such a calm and well-mannered kid and I hope he stays that way. 

Below are some pics from yesterday's celebration:






And speaking of critters. Another reason why I love going to my brother's house in Antipolo is the abundance of little critters that are not usually seen here in the metro. I get to test my Super Macro lens:





I am hoping to be more creatively productive. I needed this.
