A sort of ‘woke me up’ today.
you see, she’s been sick since friday. and then last monday, she had an operative hysteroscopy done because of bleeding. doctors said she requires just 2 days of rest and that her apparent flu had no bearing whatsoever on her ability to be on the operating table.
when you live with just your wife and an infant, expect more than the usual sleepless nights. and your energy level will be squeezed out of you faster than you can say, “bob’s your uncle.” (did i use that correctly? :P)
as i was about to leave for work after being absent for two days, i’ve been asking her if she would be OK alone. i may have asked one too many times and she told me, “look, don’t let me decide for you. if you want to leave, then leave.”
taken aback, i had a sudden realization. yep, she is right. we’re both adults and we’re fine to make our own decisions. di ko din siya kailangang i-baby. alaga, oo. bine-baby, hindi. might be something about overcompensation in my subconscious but i must determine when and how to override it.
i sometimes forget how much smarter and mature she is than i am. 🙂
