This morning, at breakfast while I was showing off my LO quickly made (one hour, tops!) last night, Sarah, my darling almost 8-year old asked me.
Sarah: Why do you scrapbook so much?
Me: So that when we're older we can remember about these times. Or when I'm dead, you will remember me.
Sarah: Ahhhh...then you should make a layout about yourself so we will know what you look like.
A wise but not-so-subtle reminder for me to scrap about myself, huh.
Last week, while we were in my scraproom using the Cuttlebug for their Christmas projects, Kahlo, my almost 6 year old said.
Kahlo: When we're older can we use all of your stuff, and when you're dead, can we have them?
Sure, anak, yan lang ang tangi kong maipamamana sa inyo. Scrapbook albums at scrapbooking items. Naubos savings ni Mama diyan. Hahaha.
A month back, when my balikbayan boxes arrived:
Sarah: You have so much scrapbooking stuff but you don't use them. Are you planning to open a store???
I didn't answer this one cause it reminded me of this conversation with Diego (then 8-years old) last year:
Diego: Mama, you buy so much scrapbooking stuff but you don't scrapbook.
Me (a little hurt): Isn't it that I made a scrapbook for your swimming lessons last summer?
Diego: That's not a scrapbook. That's a scrap page.
But when I let them use my scrapbooking materials for their school projects, I am much appreciated. Diego said this a few months back when DH and I were helping them:
Diego: It's great to have an artist for a dad and a scrapbooker for a mom.
