Here are just some of the perks of being the first born:
1) Having the entire family (and this includes the extended members too) in the hospital hours before you came into this world and the same set of people rejoicing the moment the doctor has announced that you have...arrived!
2) Getting everyone’s undivided attention to your every move and to every word you say.
3) Being able to build a relationship with everyone in the family for a longer period of time.
Needless to say, from the moment I was born, I’m lucky to be loved not only by my parents but even by my aunts, uncles and most especially my grandparents.
Together with my parents, my grandparents have played really big roles in my life. As I grow up, I get to learn more about their lives and how they got to where they are right now. Their stories are really inspiring and one that’s movie-worthy in my opinion. Let me share a little story with you:
I may be miles away but I’m glad that I still get to call them up once in a while. Come September 8 (Sunday), I will make sure to call them and greet them a Happy Grandparents Day. For all of you in Manila, why not surprise your grandparents on Sunday? Treat them to Jollibee and get 2 FREE pieces of Chickenjoy for every 8-pc Chickenjoy bucket purchase. I’m sure this simple act will be the highlight of their day. Make the most of this day to bond with them and show them how much you care. ♥
