I just arrive at my home, and once I open the door, my little daughter reaches me with a happy face.
"Yeah! Mom is coming home, let's play together."
"Muni, it's 5.30 pm already. Time to have bath okay."
My little daughter just follows what I said. She is only three years old, but her face still shows she is happy to have me with her.
After having our dinner, I need to go to additional class by 8.00 pm. The final exam is around the corner, and my school already make a schedule for each teacher. My daughter still wants to play with me.
"Mom we are going to work again."
"I still have class sweetie, you go to sleep, and we continue playing again tomorrow ya"
" No mom! You are working from the morning until the evening; now you are going to work again!" Her face starts to change.
"I'll buy you a new toy tomorrow, we going to the mall tomorrow ya."
"No! I don't want to play those toys! I just want you to be here with me! You just don't love me anymore! She runs to her room and left me with an empty heart.
Some people said, our children will understand why we need to work overtime and have less time with them. We find money so we can provide them with their needs, expensive toys, branded clothes and think they will be happy for that.
But my inner feeling said, children just can't think that way. Their priority is to have you with them. They are still little kids; they don't understand why we need to work long hours.
You give them fast food to prevent them from starving because you just don't time to cook the healthier food, you give them branded clothes to make them feel proud you are the best mom who can afford it compared to their friends.
But the truth is, the only thing that makes them happy is your presence with them even you have nothing to give.
