Missing Aki

I got to hoard 4 pillows last night. I did not wake up because of an accidental headbutt or kick. I did not have to check if someone is about to roll off the bed. I got to cuddle my husband without anyone getting jealous. Instead of reading children’s books at night, I now have more time to blog. I can blog in the morning without worrying if the brightness of the laptop screen will wake someone up. And because there won’t be anyone who will excitedly welcome me home until next week, I don’t need to rush leaving work.

Aki has been away for 7 hours and I miss him oh so terribly already. I had been prepping him up for weeks but I forgot to prepare myself to waking up without him. Last night, my mom and my sister picked up Aki for his weeklong vacation in Bayog. I am sure he will have lots of fun. His favorite cousins are there. My aunt from London and my cousin and my nephew arrived last night. For sure, it will be a week of festivities in Bayog. When Aki saw his cousins last night, he could not wait to leave the house and join them in the van. When I told him for the last time that I will miss him, he just said, “Iz okay. Call me back”.

I called him already but I still miss him. I miss his morning greet. He always says, “Goo moning, Mummy! Sunny day na. Wake up”. When I walk to the village gate, I will miss holding his little hand. I wish I could fast forward to Friday.

To make me miss him even more, I am posting here pictures that I keep forgeting to blog about.

What do you do when you really really miss your kids? I don’t want to call him all the time because that might make him homesick.

  1. Awww! I miss Aki too! Nakisali pa talaga ako sa moment mo noh. LOL!

    I actually can’t give any advice, ever since Cyler was born 2 beses palang kaming nagkahiwalay and that was whenever I have company outings. I kept on calling him din sa phone, hindi ko matagalan ung feeling na wala sya tabi ko. I don’t think I’m ready na mahiwalay sya samin for a week! Hindi din kaya ni Cj.

  2. Ahwww… So timely reading ur post.. Am away for a biz trip now n missing my Liam too…
    I usually write him letters.. Then post it sa blog so he can read it when he grows older… 🙂
    Naku for sure Aki is having a time of his life.. Un lang hurts to know that they are growing up so fast… Hurts to realize they don’t need us anymore.. Pero proud that they are doing well without us..
    Mix emotion talaga pagiging mudra.. 🙂

    • so true!! my very thoughts.
      we try to make them independent so later on they can do things without us. it makes me proud and sad at the same time

  3. The little girl went out of town for four days so I can totally relate Maqui! I watched old videos of her which made me miss her more! To forget our loneliness, Mr. D and I went on an overnight beach trip. We can’t stay at home as it feels so empty without the pitter patter of feet. 😦
