I don’t know why but there is something about men holding babies that is so adorable and sexy at the same time. Hahahahaha! Si daddy lang pala ang tinitingnan, queber na sa babies. (rolls in laughter)
Kidding aside, these past few days I grew fond (more like obssessed) of searching for pictures of fathers and sons. I thought of the following reasons why I’m in this zone:
- My passion for raising awareness on gender issues never died and was even fueled by the Gani Cruz column. Hence, I looked for pictures of men doing things that are not “normally” what society dictates them to do. I just happen to focus on men with their babies and how their faces also light up when they hold their babies, that would give moms a run for their money.
- If memory serves me right, I do not have a picture with my father. (sniff)
- Last Wednesday night, Jher and I were at San Francisco Coffee in Robinson’s Manila testing my laptop for Wi-Fi chuvachenelyns (kainez, di ba? hindi ko alam ang tawag sa ginawa ni husband. Buset.). This baby suddenly approached our table and kept on begging for attention. Jher took photos of us. The baby boy kept on “talking” to me and even gave me a kiss! Aaaaaawwww! It was so sweet, my blogfriends. Sigh. I carried the baby boy and had our picture taken (while the ladies at the next table looked over at us, seemingly asking with cloud callout: Ano ang ginagawa nya sa anak ko? hahahahaha!)
- And lastly, I think listening to Luther Vandross’ “Dance with My Father” just had a profound effect on me. Here are the father and child pics I downloaded, which I made into a movie…stay with ok? (butterfly kisses to everyone)
Sigh. (wipes tears) We men are soooo misunderstood….(sniff)
