If only

One thing I regret the most is being away from the little boy most of the time. I’ve been working mom since his birth. Though I had a chance to be a SAHM for 6 months, it was unplanned. Things didn’t work out with the husband losing a job so I was forced to get a job again before we go broke. Now, it breaks my heart whenever my mom or my aunt would hide the little boy so I can sneak out of the house whenever I need to go to work. I would then hear his wail far from our house. I pity him. If only I can spend the whole day with him, I would. If only the husband earns more than I do, I’d quit my job without batting an eyelash. If only…

But then again, this is a far from reality - now. Maybe someday, two to three years from now, I can proudly say I’m a SAHM.

i can totally relate with this. i have to sneak out of the house too whenever i have to go to work. it breaks my heart when i hear my girl cry when she realizes i'm not beside her.
