Aside

Before we came to Kuching almost a month ago, Zayan was sad and had been crying.  He didn’t want to go.

“Mummy, I don’t want to leave Daddy alone.”

“Who’d look after you?”

“Daddy will”

“Daddy needs to go to work.  How will Daddy look after you?”

“You have to come with us, Zayan.  Mummy will look after you.”

Zayan was silent …

“How long will we be in Kuching?”

“A month”.

“What’s a month?”

“Thirty days.”

“Auww … That’s long!”

And … just the other day …

“Mummy, when are we going home?”

“Soon.  Next week.”

“When?”

“Sunday.”

“How long is that?”

“”About ten days.”

“Auww … Ten days??  That’s a long time away.”

Zayan was silent … Then, “Mummy, you were right.”

“I’m right about what?”

“1 month isn’t long.  We’re going home to Daddy soon.”

And … every day since, we have been counting down to the day we’d be leaving on the plane  🙂

 

This is Zayan, Daddy’s boy …

 

We’re going home soon
