We went to shopping mall today to buy clothes for Ate Yza’s 7th birthday. Mom was so preoccupied with choosing the best clothes for me that she forgot to buy me a toy as she promised.
As I reminded her when we reached home, mom felt sorry for me and assured me that we will buy next time. I said “we will buy with daddy?” She said no because you will not go home yet. I asked “why then?” She said because you are working there in Qatar to earn, so that I’ll be able to go to shopping mall to buy toys. I asked when you will come back, she said in two months. I helplessly asked “how long is two months?” She paused, realizing that I’m actually missing you… your presence. She said it won’t be long. I asked “when Dad go home, will he be here for a long time?” She said “yes” and for no reason, she hugged me.
Dad, you’ve been in iPad long enough, come home already. I can’t fully understand mom’s reasoning. All I feel is a little bit of longingness to see you. I want to play with you, to sing with you, to dance with you. I’m bigboy na. I can’t wait to see you in the next two months.
Why can’t you stay here like other dad?
