Little Chlzy with Tita Anette and Mommy
I must say it was totally a kids' day out. More than anyone else, Chzny, Chlzy and their mischievous cousin, Rein were the ones who truly enjoyed the whole trip. I'm beginning to get a glimpse of how's it like to have my very own family day, especially when Chzny asked me again, rather more candidly this time, if I could be their new 'Dad' while we were playing at the children's pool. More interestingly, Ian and I played the cook while grilling hotdogs and barbecues for them as Little Chlzy playfully looked on, emphasizing more the duties of a father on occasions as such which I was unconsciously providing.
What is more, I am truly delighted that Chlzy and I share the love for water. To the amazement of everyone looking, she had no qualms in coming with me to the adult pool. I was half-believing that she would cry as we get to the deepest part, but she never did and we were only holding each other's hands! As a matter of fact, she seemed to be really enjoying her time while being occasionally distracted by the colorful floaters that some adults even brought to the pool and the airplanes that from time to time pass by the skies and I could swear she was probably the only 2-year old that ever reached that part that even her own mother never dared to. I was glad that she was being brought up to the world not fearing the things that kids like her should not be scared about but more than that, I am glad and truly overwhelmed to get the feeling that she trusted me to take her there.
