This is so satisfying

by Andrada Costoiu

Today my son received the Oculus. It’s what he wanted for his birthday……

He’s been waiting for it for a while. And then the box arrived.

I was just there while he was taking off the plastic and then opening the box. He looked at me, smiled and said : “Mom, this is so satisfying.”


Remember, that glorious feeling, when you get something nice, maybe something that you dreamed of …….?

Watching him open the box felt as warm as a hot chocolate on a rainy day….

Bring me something old

by Andrada Costoiu

Today, my son is at the computer for his classes, as he is doing on-line schooling.

He screamed from his room :” Mom! Mom! The teacher said to bring something old!”

Me: ” Old…let me see what I can find……!”

Him: ” Mom! Come on! “

Me: ” Wait!” , I say, as I am scrambling to find something so he could show to his class….

Him: : Mom! Ok! Listen…why don’t you come to the screen and I’ll show you..!”

Me: “What?!!!!”

Him: ” Yes, she said to bring something old….”

Me, puzzled at first and then laughing: ” I am not old!”

Note: kids and how they see us, parents. I thought it was hilarious….just another of his pearls :))))
