I always look forward to weekends. Even if it means just bumming around in bed at home. Actually, that’s the definition of a best weekend for me. Just the four of us, lying lazily in bed in front of the TV. Everyone might be doing their own thing- K would probably be drawing or browsing in her phone, the little queen playing with her toys all over the place, Hurricane would probably be playing minecraft in his tablet while glancing occasionally at the tv while I am probably snoozing, but the important thing is that we’re all together.
But when we do go out, we usually end up going to the mall. Here’s clip of how we usually spend a weekend out of the house. You’ll notice that there’s a certain place in the mall that we always like to go and have fun in – both children and the adults.
Always make the most of your weekends!
We highly support the International Day Against HOmophobia & Transphobia (IDAHOT) for the 17th of the 5th.
After all the ups and downs of being out of the closet, here we are together – building a family of our own in a country that has not recognized us as a ” basic unit of society” just yet.
And yes, it’s all worth the fight!
I am personally happy that our company is open to diversity and that they support us.
So, how do you celebrate IDAHOT in your area? 🙂 Would love to hear from you.
We were recognized and remembered by employees in no less than 3 stores inside. First, we had lunch at Mang Inasal, where the lady at the counter commented how big our daughter has grown. She said she remembers us and even pointed to where we liked to sit. Then we went to the computer store, CDR King, where the lady at the counter also talked to us and said she remembers my partner going there when she was still pregnant. Same thing happened in the hardware store.
Well, we gotta admit, lesbians & lesbian couples are quite eye catchers in a crowd, much more a lesbian family. It kind of warms my heart to know that there are people looking at us and (hopefully) cheering us on in this journey we chose. It’s also heart-melting to realize that that store is a huge part of our baby’s life and that there are people there who has seen her ever since she was still a baby.
For the past few weeks, my mind was bombarded with thoughts and ideas to post yet I find it ironic to not know where to begin. Maybe it’d be appropriate to give a little introduction about this blog project.
My partner and I have just had our baby girl last month and we needed some advice on how to raise our family. Sadly though, we have not found any parenting/family site suited for a lesbian family here in the Philippines – even if I had my internet researching skills put to use. Obviously, the country isn’t ready yet to embrace an LGBTQ family setup due to our conservative culture.
Hence, this blog is a brainchild of a lesbian couple who’s raising an unconventional family and wishes to help other LGBTQ parents out there by sharing their journey. Kindly take note that we are NO professional experts, we just wish to ignite change by imparting our experiences to you, as we redefine the meaning of family.
