I’m so sorry if I still have to rant about this but I just need to. It’s totally fine with me if you skip this post, promise. ^_^
She even implied that my daughter, the primary reason why we took her in, is difficult to handle. WTF?!?! After a month? She expects everything to fall on her lap? My husband even noticed and commented several times that he didn’t see any efforts from her to come close to the child. Now she’s telling me that my daughter is difficult?!? Something I have never heard from anyone around us, not even the neighbors who Amber always house-raids. Okay, maybe they wouldn’t tell it to my face but come on, I'm reasonable enough to admit it if it’s the fact.
In her text message, she said that she will just go back to get her things when she already has the money to pay me her advances. How convenient!
Ang akin lang naman, she could have spoken to me. Pinalusot ko na nga yung minsan na nagdadahilan sha para i-extend yung day-off nya. Although of course, I made her feel that I didn’t buy the crap she told me pero I let it go. Sana man lang nagpaalam ng maayos at hindi kami iniwan sa ere. Hay naku! Bakit, akala ba nya, kakandaduhan ko sha sa kwarto nya pag nagpaalam sha?
Kahit galit na galit ako, I just replied to her “ok”. End of it. I looked cool and calm afterwards pero sa totoo lang nawindang ako ng todo. Aba, san ako hahanap ng yaya in 2 days time? That happened in Easter Sunday. Kaloka no? Literal atang sumakit ang bangs ko!
Yesterday, only Mama looked after Amber. First time sila naiwan na sila lang. I kept on checking them and Mama never complained of anything. Setting her being the grandmother aside, she said she was able to give Amber a bath, changed her nappies without any resistance from the kid. She just played. She went to Mama when she needed her milk, when she wanted to eat. She even drank the vitamins I prepared for her before I left.
Is that difficult? O baka ayaw lang talaga sa kanya nung bata.
In a way, it’s better na rin. Kung hindi naman sha masaya sa ginagawa nya, mas ok na nga na umalis sha. It’s the way she left and her reasons that really irritated me.
And since I cannot leave all the baby-sitting to Mama (shempre, my life din naman sha), and all interested applicants are still very much employed and needs to give their notice pa, I bit the bullet and took a 15-year old but very experienced baby-sitter, who mothered her siblings since they were only 2 months old and she was 7, with me last night. She is Nanay’s neighbor. Summer kasi and she wants to earn some money before the school year begins.
Naku, dear DSWD, it’s just like a vacation for her. It’s not really child labor, I swear! She will just sit and play with Amber. Saka her mother gave consent naman. Y^_^Y
I told Ate Sandra that she can stay with us for a minimum of 1 month even if we have already the new yaya onboard so she can be assured of her 1 month allowance (which is like a full yaya pay).
To my heart’s gladness, she and Amber instantly became friends. Amber almost did not want to leave Sandra’s room last night. And Sandra looked as if she adored Amber already (yeah, there I go again, giving a judgment way too early).
Well, I hope everything goes well... and the new yaya comes in before the summer ends. L
