You’re away from mommy for 7 days now, enjoying your vacation with your lolo and lola and cousins in the province. I remember how excited you were when your lolo fetched you here last Monday. You were brimming with joy as as you hopped into the van with lolo and yaya, excited for the 10-hour drive and for your play days with cousins. Dad and I were a bit hesitant to send you to this week-long vacation away from us but we however both agreed you needed this one. You may be just a kid but you need a breather, too. And we wanted you to spend time with your grandparents and cousins because they also love you .
It’s funny that dad and I sometimes cry at night when we talk about you. We miss you, son. Our little abode is so quite without you giggling around. It’s so empty here. And whenever we call you or whenever your cousins post pictures of you on Facebook, you make us miss you more.
Funny that you still sing the “Six Little Ducks” song over the phone to mommy. Funny that when we saw your pictures, you were playing on the ground-barefoot. You were never allowed to do that here. But I’m glad your lolo is having you experience things like that. He’s training you to be street smart. You’re having the time of your life!
In your 7 days of stay with your grandparents, it was only yesterday that you told me that you already want to be with us. For the past days, you’ve been telling daddy and I that you wanted to stay in tita Che’s house together with your cousins so you can play with them all day long. Yesterday, you told us over the phone that you miss dad and I and that you already want us to fetch you, to take you in our very own home. We will son. Because we miss you. Terribly.
I’ll see you tomorrow. I’ll catch the bus trip tonight so that early in the morning, when you wake up, you’ll be surprised to see mommy. I‘ll hug you very tight.
