Learning to say...


I had been anticipating to hear him say that, calling me "Mommy" and he does, a month before his first birthday. He was just starting to mumble words then, but I am so sure he utter that word during our playtime, mimicking his Didi (after I got pregnant my husband started calling me mommy).

This afternoon I called my mom, a routine I got used to, to check on them, she told me that he had gotten so attached to her already, he cries every time my mom was out of sight and that she now knows him as Mommy and me.... He would just point onto my picture if asked "San si Mommy Kayth?" (Where is Mommy Kayth?). I am not his Mommy anymore, but just Mommy Kayth. I am not so sure if what I felt, disappointment? A little maybe, hurt? Somehow, but one thing is clear that I missed him so much and I ached badly to be a mom to him again.

Maybe this is one of the prices I need to pay for being away from him, I know this is just the start, the first one and a lot more heart pinching thing to come. I heard stories of other OFW moms where their children won't come to them the first time of seeing them again, it was heart-breaking moment.

Aaawww...don't worry Mommy Kayth! Your little one knows who you are. I'm sure your mom will make sure of that. I'll be praying for your success so you won't have to be away from your child (so that no parent will be away from their kid, for that matter!).

Don't be sad na :(

By the way...because of your comment on my blog, naglagay na rin ako ng badge! Hehehe. Thanks for bringing this vital aspect of blogging to my attention. I owe you one, kayth!
