I had so many failures before or even the time I am taking care of my son. I was called different names by gossipers, people who don't know the real story behind why I am raising my son alone.
"disgrasyada" (disgraced) most people call me that. My family would defend me but I told them to stop. I don't want to add more burden to my family so I act as nothing happened and go on with taking care of my child. Of course, with all the gossiper's attention, I was the talk of the time for quite a long time.
I lost weight during those times, my best friend told me that my eyes lost their smile. I ignored her and keep showing my family that I am fine. I personally took care of my son even if I'm already working. I was assigned on-site first so I get the chance to go home early to take care of him. I got the chance to bring him to places I want him to see. Carrying a child is a very big crowd with no one to take turns in carrying is hard but I did successfully tour him around SM by just me carrying him all the time.
I keep bringing him along with me in order for him not to feel out of place at home for his cousins are always with their father. smiling and laughing.
I bring him to places where he can always have a good laugh, to some arcades where we play a lot of games together.
Single mom struggle is working while leaving your son at home. You can't see him for the whole day and you need to work to feed the both of you. Even if you're sick but you need to work because you feel like having a sick leave will cost you a day and it's big enough money so you'll force yourself to work.
The struggle of putting on a budget (vitamins, diapers, milk, etc) and you also need to budget your fare back and forth for the whole month.
Having overtime and out of town compulsory company team building but you can't bring your son. So you will not see each other for days. Before I always cry myself alone thinking I can't see and hug them for a day. So I adjusted to the changes.
‘I’m thankful for my struggles because, without them, I wouldn’t know my strengths.’
Before the pandemic, I commute to work and come home every day. He always wakes up and watches me prepare for work and then when I set off he goes back to sleep.
He waits for me to come home even if I always arrive late. He watches tv while waiting for me.
He likes to have meals with my morning and night.
He'll tell me what he did for the whole day while I was away.
He leads in praying the "Prayer to the Guardian Angel" before going to sleep.
Most importantly. He loves cuddles and kisses. He hugs me and always holds my shirt when I am busy around the house.
That would be my definition of success as a mother. I may be a beginner but I'm trying to learn new things for his sake. I'm willing to sacrifice anything or everything for him. He's my world after all
And this would be my entry for Ms. @JonicaBradley prompt for this week entitle Success if you want to join
