Why does our son love our new place?
On our first night last week at Cavite, Ren wanted to go back home at Manila and sleep there. It made us worry that he might not get enough sleep that night but since the temperature is colder here, he didn’t realized that he already fell asleep.
On the second day, Ren and I went for a stroll in the entire neighborhood. The place is still quiet because there are still only a few homeowners who live near here. The air is also fresher because there are only a few transportation that passes by and because of that, it is safer for the kids to play outside the house. I let Ren run not worrying that he might get hit by a car.
That night, I noticed that he didn’t asked us to go home to Manila anymore. I think he is starting to like it here. My son, just like us wants a quiet and huge area to stay with.
The following day, we went to the nearest mall to buy some groceries to stock because I heard that there was a monsoon coming. The mall is smaller than the ones in Manila and yet there are still a lot of things to look into. They have a kids corner where you can let them play for an hour. Besides that, they have an arcade amusement center for older bored kids at home.
It is nice that our subdivision provides a shuttle service going in and out of the vicinity area. A shuttle is better because it is more private and a lot cheaper than renting a tricycle.
Now, whenever we go back to Manila for my son’s therapy session on weekends he always ask us to go back to Cavite within the day. He even cries when we tell him that we are going to sleep at Manila. When you ask him where he likes the most he will tell you “Camella”.
Even though our house here in Cavite is quite smaller than our house in Paco, the surrounding (as of now) makes us like this place more.
Maybe your son sees something better on your other house.
