I couldn’t help not posting this converation I had last night with my son. We were about to go to sleep when he, out of the blue said:
KOBE: Ma, you know I think di ka na love ni Dad ME: Why? KOBE: Di ka na nya masyado pinapansin. He doesn't even talk to you anymore. ME: Of course not. Sure we talk... a lot but Dad's been very busy and our schedules don't exactly meet. KOBE: Yeah, but he's always around me and Julia
I admit, we don’t get to see each other. But only because work has took a great deal of our “together” time. Im in the office. He’s at home. And vice versa. This is one of the downside and the challenges of being a call center agent’s wife. I usually bridge the gap by calling the house before Hubby leaves. Knowing my husband, he’s not the type who would go out of way to call about trivial stuff. It took quite of getting used to on my part but that’s the way he is. He shows he cares in the most unexpected, unconventional ways.
I waited up for him to get home this morning. When I told him about “our little conversation”, he was amazed on how observant and sensitive Kobe has become. True, kids say the darnest things but I guess they also have the wisest thought. Hubby has realized it. We should perhaps shake off the comfort zone and once again remind ourselves that marriage is still a work in progress.
