But seriously, who would not want to be with their kids 24/7 lalo na when they are still small? Tapos sabayan pa ng nagkakasakit. Everytime, Derelle gets her immunization shots I feel paranoid na. Kasi kasunod nun sigurado ay lagnat. Kung swertihin at maagapan ng gamot, wala. pero syempre yung comfort na alam mong maibibigay mo sa anak mo kapag nasaktan o natusok ng karayom.
Working mothers like us must be missing a lot about our kids. Lalo na yung “firsts”. You’re lucky if it happened when you were around. I feel disappointed kapag huli na pala akong nakakita na nagawa na yun ng anak ko. My husband spends most of the time at home when Deye is awake. Split shift kasi sya, ako naman whole day wala sa bahay kasi office hours. Kaya sya yung mas laging nauunang nakakaalam. Sometimes I would tell him “hey, guess what, Deye did this blah blah blah” with all my excitement expecting that I was the first one to witness it. And he would respond, “yeah, she did that yesterday too”. O di ba nakaka-disappoint?
Hay buhay nga naman ng working nanay!
