A Relationship with TWO Fathers

HE, ME and the twins did an early Father's Day last Sunday.

We watched Kung Fu Panda 2.

It was a riot - I laughed harder and louder than the twins did (especially on that dragon/caterpillar bit).

It was the first outing we had - the four of us.

Remember this The BIRTHDAY Clause... ? Well this includes all other Holidays that involves the customary in-laws participation.

So they're doing Father's Day on Sunday together with the in-laws so we did it in advance.

I put on my tito hat for the twins. They're just adorable - my hands are up for SHE for doing a great job with them. Polite and really witty - alam nilang makisama.


WE have the twins for Sunday. HE

Bakit? ME

A little excitement won't hurt. HE

Che! You know what I mean. ME

Advance Happy Father's Day natin. HE

NATIN, I like how that sound. ME

And SHE's doing it with Chris and the his kid too. HE

Wow - so its serious with Chris? ME

Everything's serious when it comes to SHE naman. HE

I pretended not to hear.

So what do we do on Sunday? ME

Movie - the twins want to see the panda movie. HE

Its Kung Fu Panda. You liked the first one kaya - you were laughing when we watched it here sa bahay. ME

You know me and my memory... HE giggling.

Che. Movie then it is. ME saying a lot of 'ches' lately.


And oh, on the second Father, my Dad's been with the babae since last month and not of his choosing.

My Mama's done with him and she looks great!

I love my dad - he is what he is. But we all have to move on and if he doesn't see our value as a family then he can look for his own values instead.

He'll always be our dad - that's clear.


Last month,my dad's older brother charged to our house and said bad things about my ate.

She accused her of spending the money he gave our dad in her wedding. That ticked my Mama off since all the expenses were paid for by my kuya - the before-groom.

And three points:

1. If he gave the money to my dad already, what does he care on the use of it? It was given right?
2. Its not like we're random people - for Christ's sake, pamangkin niya kami! Eh ano naman kung gamitin namin yung pera?
3. The money was, for all we know, gambled-away by my dad already.

My sister was distressed because of the event and she's pregnant. So we decided, we're through - we can't keep on being our dad's excuse to his brother or his life. We hope we can be the reason for his life but not an excuse.

And with our tito, come to think of it, he never really gave anything to us - it was always for my dad. And we appreciate the fact that he looks out for our dad and cares for him. I just hope he dies before my dad because if my dad dies first, no one will bury my tito. Ang sama ng iniisip ko pero I can't help it.

Hindi ako nalulungkot, nasasayangan lang ako kasi in the eyes of my dad's clan - we are his achievements. Now what does he have? A mistress half his age with an illegitimate kid? An older brother that sustains him? A job he is miserably failing at? Gusto kong maawa pero ginusto niya e. He should fight for us and genuinely change - we can't cover-up for him every time and put on a happy family portrait. As my ate said, nakakapagod na palang magpanggap. 

I just needed to say that.


  1. I feel your situation, Kaloy. We went through that family trouble din.

    On a happier note, happy pseudo-tito-slash-father's day! :)

  2. handa ka na bang maging isang sharon cuneta in "madrasta"?


  3. i guess pwede ka na din batiin.

    Happy Father's Day Kaloy and to He most especially. :)

  4. Can I just say I wanted to be a kabit na. thumbs up Kaloy!

  5. k Spiral Prince: we all have to move on eventually - it doesn't make us less of a family naman - i think... hehehe... and thanks for the greet - ok na yung tito-day wag na ung slash muna... hahaha

    k Eternal Wanderer: hindi ko kaya ang Sharon moments - hindi! hahahaha
