Conspiracy Theory

11-year old Matt, 10-month old Jake and 8-year old Kyle, all huddled together...

Even if I have most of the weekdays all to myself since I became a stay-at-home-mom, I still look forward to weekends to go out with Jerry and the kids. Yeah we do get to spend family time with their cousins, but I wanted more time with them especially on weekends. However, lately, it ends up that the two elder boys, Matt & Kyle, have plans of their own.

Last Saturday, we had lunch at the old Abuhan Restaurant where Jerry met with their sales group. Amazing how much food the kids could already consume! Matt had more than two big cups of rice and Kyle had about 2 to go with the restoâ??s famous pochero (delish but sinfully cholesterol-laden!). When you see them eating heartily like that, you either get amused and end up eating as much or get distracted from your diet and still end up eating as much! Hahaha!

Anyway, after that really filling lunch (Ugh! I resent the extra poundage I gained!), I was hoping to go shopping with my kids in tow. Kyle said his friend Jericho was waiting for him at home. They agreed to play PS2 at his friendâ??s place. Then I turned to Matt who said heâ??d just stay home and play the computer or watch NBA, because he didnâ??t want to be seen out with zits on his face.

Whatâ??s up with that? Now I have to make an appointment with my kids or wait for their zits to dry before I could take them out? Since when did going to the mall become a bore to my boys who would usually end up coming home with either a new PC or PS1 CD, or a new set of clothes? I donâ??t seem to recall when they stopped getting all giddy at the thought of going through shelves of legos and model cars. Was this a well-thought out plan to conspire against me? Ack!

Without really saying it, the look on Jerryâ??s face seemed to tell me to let go a bit since the kids are growing up. Sighâ?¦. Iâ??m glad I still have 10-monh old Jake to keep me company for the next 8 years!

(Sunday morning, Matt & Kyle woke me up with hugs and kisses and words of apology for making me feel â??rejectedâ??. Allâ??s well!)
