Yesterday, my 17-year-old daughter Christine was happy. She got a brand new, top-notch cellphone from me after church. Almost unnoticed, my other daughter, 8-year-old Angel, saw it and began to sob ("umagos ang luha") over the gift. I had to "pacify" her the rest of the afternoon and assure her with my usual dosage of hugs and kisses. Being daddy to two girls can be a challenge! It's a delicate balance.
