On Sundays and Weeknights

every night, the boys will wait for their father to come home. once they hear the gate opening they will rush to the door in all excitement. i can even say that sam bounces as he greets his father at the door. sam will make beso beso , basti will look for pasalubong, ( haha!) or his papa's cellphone . they can't wait for him to come home. it seems that he is the life of the house during the night. basti sometimes eat dinner with his father, afterwards the three of them would play , watch a movie togther in dvd, basti's choice of course . come midnight they would eat again, make some midnight snacks (sandwiches, popcorn, etc). basti and his papa has gained weight in the past few weeks. sam is still as skinny but bouncy as ever, he doesn't eat that much anyway. he just do a lot of horsing around. the kids love their papa tremendously and are always excited to see him every night. there is always a sense of peace, a sense of completeness, an assurance that everything's okay and there's no need to worry everytime he's around..... basti enjoys his father company. i hope this continues until he grows older. on sundays, they take a bath together in front of the house, sam playing with the water hose, basti spraying water all over , all of them in shorts, except of course sam who's naked . basti does not want to wear brief in front of the neighbors, haha. he's just 6 and already conscious! on weekends too, when edwin go to the groceries he usually buy food which they can eat during their midnight snacks or weekends merienda. hotcakes, popcorns, french fries, yes i know these are junkfoods but these are food that we all enjoy and bonds us together . i bought what we call in tagalog as "pangkaskas ng yelo " and edwin has taken a liking to sago and gulaman, halo halo, etc. we are planning to make some mango sago this week. we are planning to concoct some more ice drinks in the future. edwin even makes ice candy occasionally. as for the kids, they have been addicted to one kind of food to another, there was a time that basti loves choco chips, now he loves oreo cookies and doesn't let anyone near his stash in the ref. they used to love jelly ace but they don't seem to like that much nowadays. of course jollibee foods are consistently popular. to sum up, my boys enjoy being together, eating , and watching movies together. They are such a happy bunch.
