I didn’t go to work yesterday because I had to settle the school requirements to make Amber’s enrollment official.
I send her off to school and fetch her afterwards.
When we got home, she came to me and hugged me. While hugging me, we had this short but really touching conversation that made my heart melt (and ache).
Amber: I’M SO HAPPY, Mommy!
Mommy: Talaga? Why are you happy?
Amber: Because........ you-are-here!
Aww, isn’t she sweet? But I was left speechless.
I wanted to promise her that I will be there every day to send her to school or every time she comes home from school. Sadly, I can’t.... yet.
Sigh. The pains of a working-mom. L
