To all the kids who turned 10. A new hello kitty pencil case or a new Barbie bag does not make her a better person than you. It's okay to use last year's bag and shoes. Be thankful for mom's pabaon of good ol' home cooked meals. You will miss it terribly when you are working and scouring for cheap yet decent lunch meals in your office vicinity. Do not be embarrassed if your family is too excited to attend your first communion or your field demo. It may look like social suicide to have a whole barangay of relatives cheering you on but it's really not! Mom and dad, lolo and lola, won't be there forever. Let them see you grow up. Trust me when I say you'll miss it.
