Miss you too
Kak Chik came to me when I was reading weekend's newspapers yesterday afternoon.
"Daddy, can you take me to school?"
"Ok, I will send you to school tomorrow."
"Daddy, can you take me after I finished my school?"
"Mmmm....you go and bring me my hand phone; let me check if I have meeting, I cannot take you. If I don't have meeting, then I can take you"
Obligingly, my little girl went to take my hand phone on the table and handed over to me. I glanced through my schedules; no meeting tomorrow but I know I am gonna have a very tight day tomorrow to wrap up one urgent assignment.
But again, I didn't want to disappoint my little girl. She's still waiting patiently for my answer.
"Okay....., I will send you to school tomorrow. In the afternoon, I will call your mummy first. If I can take you, I will take you; If I cannot take you, mummy will take you. OK?"
"OK, thank you Daddy." Short and sweet.
"Come, give me a hug."
I hugged and kissed my little daughter. I knew she missed me. For the last two weeks, I didn't wait to send her to her kindie. I went straight to office after I sent the two elder girls to school and came back late at night when she would already in bed.
Honestly, I missed you too sayang.
This morning, I just need to tap her shoulder to wake her up. She opened her eyes and smiled. I love that smile. The kind of smile from your kid when she got what she wanted; when her wish was granted. She obediently went to the washroom.
By the time I was back from sending Abang Akmal to his sekolah agama, Kak Chik has had her breakfast and was ready to be sent to her kindie.
Kak Chik is the only one of my kids who calls me 'Daddy' especially when we are alone together. She also likes to brush up her English when we are in private.
Her smile this morning made my day already. Thank you Sayang, that's a good booster to your Daddy to face the tough day ahead.
