I felt really sad.
Here is a mom who also has a baby but she is here with us to take care of ours.
Last week the parcels of clothes my husband ordered from the US arrived one by one. He got G a total of 20 dresses from Baby Gap and Carters
So, when we went to Mothercare. I got the yaya a new pair of shoes for her son.
Since next week happens to be her son's birthday, I asked my husband if we can give him clothes too. He got him 2 crisp polo. The yaya was very happy.
My husband said I talk to the yaya and the maids more than I talk to some of our relatives.
I said, as a mom, I really emphatize. Aside from that, I have lived away from home for 14 years later. I know how it feels to not have your family around.
I know it's hard to be away from home especially if you have a baby.
The least I can do is to make life easier.
When we eat dinner, we eat together. When I order Starbux, I order a Venti and share it with her.
Perhaps, I am not used to having a maid but I feel guilty enjoying stuff when the person beside me isn't.
I'm pretty sure if she decides to leave someday, I'll truly feel bad. I hope we can get a big house so that her son can live with us too.
Truth be told, when 2 of the maids of my in-laws left, I felt quite sad.
When I was growing up, our maid's 2 kids lived with us. We all lived together, ate in the same table, celebrated holidays from the time we were 8 until they graduated college.
But that's not a normal set-up here in Manila, I think...
