This Mom Of 5 Teaches Us What True Love Means: “Watch How He Treats You When Intagram Isn’t Looking”

LOVE

Kids nowadays seem to have different notions of love. What with the influence of social media, everybody seems to want to be in the spotlight.

What once was a way to show a gesture that you care for the person you are asking to the prom or the homecoming dance has now become the ultimate playing field. Promposals became a battle of who put the most effort money and who got the most likes on Instagram.

This is what this amazing Mom blogger pointed out on her post. It’s incredible how Amy Betters-Midtvedt who runs the blog Hiding in the Closet with Coffee was able to show the world what love is in just one simple photo.

Amy posted this photo of her husband who seemed to be entering a supermarket. Though it is not that apparent in the photo, Amy said her husband, Todd, was smiling. She named the post “This is what your knight in shining armor looks like in your 40’s

She seemed to be talking to the younger generations who have vague interpretations of love.

“Listen up young ones.

This is what your knight in shining armor looks like when you are in your 40’s.

Yes, that’s my amazing husband who is arriving on the scene with his credit card because what you can’t see is me, standing next to a cart super full of groceries that I couldn’t pay for because I couldn’t find my wallet.

Not sure you can tell, but he’s smiling at me. Yup…he had to leave work and he is smiling. His only words of admonishment were, “You’re not supposed to be grocery shopping I said I’d go this week.”

Seriously.

Young people, this is what love looks like when you’re old and it’s ridiculous how awesome it is.”

Amy and Todd were high school sweethearts, now they are happily married with 5 kids. Amy them proceeded in describing what love is for her.

“Young people, this is what love looks like when you’re old and it’s ridiculous how awesome it is.

Love also looks like me coming downstairs to a full pot of coffee every morning because coffee is love.

Love looks like all the lunches being made already so I can enjoy that aforementioned cup of coffee.

Love looks like someone washing the dishes while his wife catches up on This is Us while plopped on the couch not helping at all.

Love looks like a super patient dad doing the 5 year old’s homework with him every morning so I can get to work on time.

Love looks like running to the store before bed after your wife has forgotten to buy milk because you know the morning will be easier if we can serve up some cereal.”

Now we see how deserving Todd is, for the affection that Amy is letting us know.

But apparently, the post is not to brag about her husband (which we would understand even if she did), but to tell the young ones what love really is. Hint: It’s not the big teddy bears and the chocolates and the Instagram-worthy promposals!

“Young people, listen.

Do not be fooled by big, showy promposals and giant cards with candy bars glued to them with some cute saying or by your name spelled in pepperoni by a boy who’s asking you to homecoming.

That isn’t the stuff that lasts and let’s be honest…moms are totally helping them with those things.

Watch how he treats you when Instagram isn’t looking.

And that my friends is true love.”

A lot of people frown on very young lovers, especially when they are still in their early high school and especially in grade school years! After all, the incidence of teenage pregnancy has risen up significant over the past decades.

But one couple from Davao has proven that love isn’t always destructive to very young people because it can also be used as inspiration to strive harder to reach their dreams together!

Meet Vande Alagao and Janica Eleria from Davao City in southern Philippines. They were lovers since their elementary days. What’s amazing about their relationship is that not only were they able to manage staying together all these years but that they had graduated together from three different schools.

A bit confusing, eh? Well, here’s what really happened.

On When in Manila, Janica revealed that they met back in Grade 2 when she transferred to Vande’s school. She gushed at how Vande could still vividly remember to this day what she was wearing that day and what cellphone she was using!

They started exchanging text messages in Grade 5 and became a couple a year later.

In high school, however, Vande went to a different school. They only saw each other about once or twice a year at the time, until Janica’s mom decided to move her to Vande’s school in their third year of high school.

They graduated together from that school, a different one from their elementary school but they were together.

They recently graduated from senior high school. Thankfully, their respective families were supportive of their relationship, especially because they continue to focus more on their studies.

In college, the two are planning to take up different courses but just like their previous years, they will be studying in the same school. They will be celebrating their 7th year this October. Hopefully, 4 years from now, they will still be a couple and graduating from their fourth school together!

Dad Earns Praise for Being Proud of Son, Despite Barely Passing Grades

Published

Every parent wants the best for their children – and that often means encouraging (even forcing!) the kids to do better, especially in school. More often than not, parents get angry if their children have failing grades or if the grades are not within expectations.

Sadly, this puts too much pressure on the children to excel even if they couldn’t really do it, no matter how hard they study. In reality, whether we like to admit it or not, not everyone was born academically intelligent.

But one dad recently went viral after posting his son’s barely passing grades. He’s definitely the complete opposite of those proud parents who post their children’s nearly perfect grades but he’s still as proud as them!

In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, netizen E.i. Baldo shared a photo of his son’s grades as well as a photo of them posing outside a house with a swimming pool.

This cool dad congratulated his son for passing Grade 1. He said that the boy made his happy, especially when the kid joked that his dad should open the card slowly because the grades could cut his finger, an allusion to the joke that line-of-7 grades are ‘palakols’ (axes). LOL.

Instead of getting angry, however, this dad felt proud that the boy passed the level and would be in Grade 2 next year. He recalled that back when he was a student, he also had similar grades; thus, the boy’s report card is really just like a ‘throwback’ to his own.

According to Baldo, knowing his own capabilities as a student, he didn’t really dream of going to the stage to put medals and ribbons to his kids.

He just encouraged his son to try harder next year, maybe getting the grades up to 79% but it was clear that there was no pressure from him because the passing grade is 75%; so, he argued that any excess is really just an ‘allowance’.

For his pride in his son and for not pressuring the kid in achieving something the boy couldn’t do, this dad earned netizens’ praise. Many are wishing that all parents would be like him, understanding and supportive of their kids no matter what happens!

If you say ‘policeman’, images that come to most Filipinos’ minds is that of a pot-bellied guy in uniform, a bad image that is the product of the many years that they had to deal with that kind of police officer.

These days, however, the opposite is true. In fact, there are so many gorgeous and hunky police officers these days – and many of them have gone viral on social media. One of these is PO1 Christine Casaysayan.

Known as Tin Casaysayan on Facebook, the policewoman went viral for her stunning photos, not just as a woman in uniform but also in her travel photos. This young lady proves that one can also look good and enjoy fun vacations even with a serious, dangerous job like being a policewoman.

The strength of a woman is not measured by the impact that all her hardships in life have had on her; but the strength of a woman is measured by the extent of her refusal to allow those hardships to dictate her and who she becomes,” Officer Tin wrote on Facebook.

In a recent post, she also recalled how people had called her weak in the past, predicting that she wouldn’t survive the police training and would just quit.

They told her she should not force herself to do something she could not do because there are other things that are meant for her – and that the sad stereotype that many think about when it comes to beautiful ladies.

But Officer Tin proved them wrong. She also proved that a woman can be both beautiful and strong! While she didn’t graduate with flying honors, she said that she is still proud of her achievement. Indeed, a lot of people do quit such rigid trainings and completing the challenging course was already a huge achievement in itself.
