Wherefore Art Thou, Trunki?


My mom's package hasn't come yet and I am really getting impatient. Not only is my son's Trunki there (it missed our Visayas trip), but also my puppet-making paraphernalia. And Yakee's ball-stick-bird books!

And because I had originally asked my sister to purchase a Trunki for us instead of makeup for me (I figured, what will I do with a $100 starter makeup kit when I seldom use any, and still actually have 4 lipsticks, 2 eyeliners and several palettes of eye shadow to go through) for the Visayas trip, I also don't really know what I'd do with it when it comes, haha. I'm afraid it might end up something i'd be kicking around too in our home, just to pave a way through all the chaos. I exaggerate because the boys generally know how to pack away, but still, every Mom has to stumble at least twice on some toy. That's a law of nature. And a Trunki could prove to be a big stumbling block!

Not to mention, a source of conflict for the two... but hey, I am not here to shield them from the realities of life.

I also had my sis buy that for Yamee because I wanted him to have something that he alone had or got first (since Kuya has paved the way for owning a lot of cool boy stuff previously). I don't care if he'd grow up owning an aluminum briefcase or preferring raggedy backpacks, I just want him to own something totally unncessary so that I can tell him someday that I made sure he didn't just have hand-me-downs (not that there's anything wrong with them per se, just that I also know how good it makes someone feel to have something that's just his). Plus, I want to sort of strike a balance and have him own something "cool" that Kuya will have to borrow, instead of being at the mercy of Kuya's kindness for everything.

Does that even make sense? Well, it does to me :D
