My Little Independent Girl

Something happened yesterday. I admit, sometimes I no longer have time for my daughter. The same thing as usual, when I’m about to sleep, she’s already awake. But yesterday, I couldn’t hold it any longer. I was so sleepy that I don’t remember if she has asked for something.

I thought I was dreaming when she asked for didi. I think I just nodded and went back to sleep. Even if my mom is around, she prefers to stay in the bedroom with me.

Until suddenly, my brother came knocking. I woke up, Deye wasn’t there beside me. Then, my brother said “tingnan mo si Deye gumagawa na ng didi nya” (look at Deye, she’s making herself a bottle of milk). I got up from bed in just a snap and saw my little girl holding her feeding bottle in one hand and struggling to scoop her milk with her other hand (the table where I keep her milk and bottles is about 5 inches above her height, so imagine….)

I felt sorry for her. I asked her why didn’t you tell Mama…. she said “because… because…. you are sleeping”.

This is the disadvantage that I get – working from home on a graveyard shift. 🙁

  1. aw isa lang ibig sabihin, sis..she’s getting bigger. and she knows how to do that na. so put ka nalang ng water sa bottle, and use that keeper with right number of scoops para next time di na sya mag scropp from the tin. ohhh hugs to her. I don’t find her act a bad one for u. she understands kasi na ur syeeping ay sleeping pala. heheheehe ang bait nya!

  2. Hi May! May kirot nga tuwing mababasa ko ito. Kaya sabi ko if I would go back to work, yung hindi magiging conflict sa sched namin ng mga bata. At least now, kahit working ko I get to play with them for a while and spend a weekend for them alone.

    Hassle kasi ang sched na maging VA, kaya no no no na sa akin ang ganyan.


  3. This is exactly the reason why I can’t go back to work. I’m afraid to have less time with her than I do now. Being a SAHM all my attention is on her but yeah, I know they have to be independent too. I’m just glad that at least she still lets me do my “job” (read: blogging) from time to time and that’s also when she gets to use my phone.

    Thanks for sharing this again.
