the luckiest knight @9

he could have been born on the fourth of july and have joined uncle sam and the rest of the yankees in celebrating their independence day, but my knight couldn’t wait a day longer. 

thanks to the passing of time, he finally learned to wait and be patient.

this was his mettle when he agreed to have a post-birthday “celebration” last july 6 at alabang town center. as expected, this celebration i was talking about was not a grand one. the celebrator’s request was to play at timezone and eat zagu, his favorite pearl shake.

being simple, the request was granted with a little surprise in store for him. he had no idea that i invited his tita nano and his two first cousins, ate yula and ate tintin. personally, i always felt that these are the three important persons in his formative years especially his tita nano who had not stopped fulfilling her duty as his surrogate mother when i had to be away from the house. for my two nieces who lived with me for quite sometime when we were still in manila, i would stay grateful to them for lending a hand in taking care of lancelot when he was still a toddler. basically, they witnessed how my youngest son grew up and i could sense that he had turned into a favorite cousin of theirs. thus, all of these three “special” guests came and sacrificed whatever prior sked they had that saturday just to be with him.

at nine, my knight has not outgrown his fondness of timezone. still very much a child at heart, he was given all the time to savor his carefree and innocent moments.

we were at atc for roughly six hours. we could have stayed there until nighttime but with the traffic situation that awaited us all on the road, we decided to start moving after taking a light merienda at burger king (the perfect place for the royalty) for knight’s additional request. 🙂

the burp which lancelot let out clinched that  simple and very private “children’s party”. stealing a glance at my knight, i  saw  his beaming face which exuded the joy and contentment which i think we were partly responsible of. and with all the simple gifts which he received and worked hard for, my knight was truly the luckiest @ 9!

    many thanks, rachel. i am delighted to know that you are keeping track of my entries here. 🙂 yes, this is special and i’m happy that you loved this one.

    i guess the feeling is mutual. lancelot also misses my classes esp your batch. he is no longer tailing me every morning because he now attends whole day classes in the ibed. anyways, i will relay your message.
