My sister will be spending the whole of the 2-month summer vacation in Cebu for her On-the-Job training. Since our little kiddo will be turning 1 next month, my sister won’t be present on her son’s first birthday. Sad as it may seem for both of them and for us, the little one has no idea of what will be celebrated next month and who will be absent.
Taken this morning, Castiel, our baby, finds joy in playing with the zipper of the bag that contains his mother’s things for the trip to Cebu. Clueless of his mother’s flight, he smiles to the camera while holding the bag as if “after a long while of convincing Mommy, I get to go with her to Cebu.” But he stays here with us, while mommy has to do her practicum away.
Sister may be sad for leaving her son for two months for the first time which also happens to be his first birthday, she said: “I’m doing this for him.” Awwww, motherly love!
