My Via and I went out last Sunday to join my sister and family. As usual, I feel resentful that she can enjoy her time with her whole family while Via and I cannot. But you know, I'm putting it at the back of my mind when the thought creeps up.
When I look at Via, I think of her father and his (feasible) promises.
But on the other hand, I quite enjoyed myself with my daughter last Sunday. She was eating off the same plate as I was eating in the restaurant. I think she also enjoyed herself when we were in the bookstore. She kept looking around the books. And whenever I open up a book in front of her, she pays attention to it. Sometimes, she looks up at me whenever I start reading the book aloud.
I'm giving her the grounded mangoes in my plate of Sicilian Salad
(Italianni's Eastwood Mall)
Mommy, there's so many people here.
Momma, I want to go home now
and crawl in my kuchon (mattress on the floor).
In retrospect, it was still a great day for both of us. At least, we got out of the house and see other human beings besides ourselves. LOL!
