The Sweetest Distraction

Hello Sweeties! Happy Friday y’all!

I have not been able to write for the past few months and as you can see, I have been sharing quotes and daily readings from ODB, from time to time, just to keep my site going (And I do appreciate those who liked my posts, I thank you all, big time! it means a lot to me! 😊).

But this, I would surely want to share. I am now working remotely in the comfort of my home, as I have been for over a month now, enjoying my time, as a hands-on mom and a working mom, both at the same time.

So, when my 4yrs old son is at home, which is mostly the case (his school is only 3hrs a day) he always do stuff to grab my attention. He loves to play blocks and puzzles and he gets very happy and energetic when being praised.

He wants to always hear me say “Wow! Thats nice!”, “Very good!” “You’re so good at that!”, “That’s pretty!”, and gets really upset if I dont pay attention to what he did (for me, apparently 😜).

And so, the pic collage are just some of his “artworks”. I dont recognize some of the figures but he has a name for each one 😁. I think, there is an elephant in there, a pyramid, a house with a huge ball on the rooftop, and I dont remember the rest (lol).

He made all of ’em the other day and had me choose one figure each time he finishes another one, (“mom, which one is your favorite?”) and put (my choice) or replace the (previous) figure on top of my working table, across my line of sight while am working on some report. And he did this over and over, to the point that I can no longer compose a complete sentence on my report being distracted by him every minute or two, having me react and choose, until I got pissed off.

Patience consumed, I turned to him angrily, “Stop! why can’t you just play on your own?! Right there on the other side! You’re distracting me here! Can’t you see mommy is working?” And then, he gave me a naughty-pity face, and said “That’s for you mom! My gift for you! Coz you working!”

I just melted right there 😍 πŸ’•

More to mention, everynight he wont go to sleep until I do (I work online till 10 or 11pm) and everytime I tell him to go to bed upstairs he would say “Antay lang kita mommy! Kasi wala ka kasama dito! Sama lang kita!” (“I’ll wait for you mommy, coz you’re alone here, I’ll keep you company”) And lately, I’m being able to convince him to go to bed telling him “Its ok! Mommy will be fine here! You can go to bed and wait for me there!” But he would still go back and forth to me several times and would say “Titingnan lang kita mommy!” (“Just checking on you mommy!”) Which also distracts me everytime πŸ˜†πŸ˜Šβ˜Ί.

The sweetest distraction though! πŸ’“
