Officially an INATAY (inay+itay)

It's been a week since my husband left abroad. He decided to grab the opportunity to work abroad to be able to save for the future of our family. Making that decision was hard for the both of us. 

Things were really different now. I have to wake up very early in the morning to do the household chores my husband used to do such as feeding the dogs and cleaning their mess. I have to be a mother and a father to our one-year old baby boy. Although I have a nanny for my baby, I always manage to be a hands on mom when I am at home. The nanny's role is to take care of the baby while I am at work. 

I am still in the period of adjustment as well as my baby. I know he is wondering why he haven't seen his "papa" for a week now. He always say papa especially when he sees a man. I know he missed his father they way I do. Especially when he wakes up in the morning, he used to lean on his papa's tummy while his papa rubs his head while talking to him. I always show my baby the picture of his papa and taught him to kiss and hug the picture. Now, whenever I hand him the picture, he would immediately smile at it, kiss and hugs the picture. I know that things are still not okay but I know that sooner or later we will get use to it and everything will be okay.

My Baby's New Sleeping Buddy

Got a package yesterday from my husband's aunt in Bacolod. Inside was a huge gorilla stuff toy for CeeJay which was sent by my brother in-law in the States. There were also other goodies for all of us. My baby was already sound asleep when we reached home that night and he was not able to see his new toy. So I just placed the big stuff toy beside him. early this morning when he woke up, he was surprised to see the big gorilla beside him. I thought he'll be frightened since it's bigger than him, but I was wrong. He just stared at the toy for few seconds, smiled, touched the face of the gorilla, and said "ngee". That was just his reaction and then he keeps on grabbing the big gorilla toy.

Take It or Leave It?

Just this afternoon, my boss called  me and asked me to read the message in his mobile phone. I had already the instinct that this is something about the vacant secretary position of his immediate superior and I was right. I read the message and I just simply smiled. My boss asked me if it is okay for me and without hesitations, I firmly said "No". My boss asked me again several times and said it's just temporary and I will be back to to my original work after a month, after his boss hire a new secretary. I was almost about to be convinced but I really stick to my decision and let my boss understand my reason. I am not capable to be his immediate superior's secretary since I cannot come to office early because I have to take care of the baby, I am really an oblivious type of person and I know it takes a person who's memory retention is almost perfect :), and I am a person who doesn't know how to keep quiet whenever a person scolds me without a clear reason. My boss' immediate superior is known to have a cranky attitude and I don't want to be stressed. Glad, my boss understand my side.
