my heartbeat always goes up whenever i got phone calls from the daycare - could rafael be having a fever? oh no, could he have broken his head?
this morning the school rang and amid the heavy pounding of my heart, i managed to hear the words of the teacher: "rafael said he didn't see you this morning and he missed you, can you spare a minute to talk to him?"
oh yes oh yes!!!
rafael wasn't speaking at all during the "conversation" and it was only me who kept saying "mama will see you soon tonight" but his silence already brightened up my day.
i just wish he could be as sweet as i return home tonight - you know what, sometimes he could refuse to hug me and turn away from me, especially at times when i need to work overtime.
and one month later rafael is going to start nursery class at a new school, i just wish the teachers could be as patient to make these sweet calls for him and me.
