The Pains of Being a "away-from-home" Mommy



He is my son during our Skype video calls, he wants us to "karga" (Filipino term for carry a baby) him over our place. He was confused and got really angry after realizing that he can't actually be with us physically, my mom told us that he cried to sleep after it, same with me too, I sob to my comfort, releasing all the sadness and homesickness I had inside.

He is only two years and three months old and starting to wonder, asking a lot, comprehending on all things that's new to him. At his age, curiosity is all he got and I feel so helpless not to be there for him though I know my mom is there to stand-in for me, I still feel responsible on nourishing his mind and emotions. Wish I could be there for him.

that is really heartbreaking for a mom, but you know it's a good thing that there's skype,etc..when we were small all we heard was my Mama's voice.
take care.

Aww! ;( I'm a stay at home mom, and I can't seem to get enough of my son still. Be strong! Your decision I believe it's all for the best ...in due time. :) Absence makes the heart grows fonder! :-D

awww, naka-touch naman to. He is 5 months elder than my little guy at parang maka-understand na rin siya kung ano ang ginagawa ko. Always wanting my attention away from the computer.

@ Mayet - yup good thing may mga free online video communication kahit papaano nagkikita kami.

Thanks to the advent of technology! Despite the distance and separation, you can still communicate with him via the internet. I admire your resilience Kayth. It must have been so difficult for your being too far away from him. Hang in there!
