Mommy Moment "first step"

Today is Friday. For some, it is TGIF. For mom blogger, it is a Mommy Moment day and today’s theme is “first step.”

Since I have older kids and their first step or milestone is not available right now, my entry for mommy moment today will be a big major first step of my older daughter.

As a mom, we always want to be there in our children to guide them and be with them 24/7.This was the first time that my daughter had to be away for three days all alone without mom and this was during grade school. I consider this as one big step as a mom conquering fear and trusting God in our life and for my daughter taking independency and responsibility out of being alone.
Youth Congress held in Baguio wherein my daughter actively participated.
The event gave her the chance of budgeting her own allowance for three days. On the first day of the congress, she already bought sunglasses, a hat and pasalubong. She wasn’t that excited, huh.

I can’t help but missed her a lot for three days. Although I’ve been calling her from time to time, still I was counting every minute for her to be home. When I fetched her from the trip, she was really very excited to share her experience in the congress.

To let her learn sense of independency and responsibility is one big step in my life, and I guess her first major step too.

  7. I have yet to experience the same with my daughter. Hindi ko yata maimagine kapag malayo siya. Congrats to your daughter for being an independent young lady. πŸ™‚

  8. yami, it took a lot of courage for me to decide for her to go alone. but since decided tlaga siya, kaya i let her go. mahirap, the feeling of being 6hours away is really hard for a mom like me. pero alam mo yung feeling na, wow, nakaya niya talga, yun ang masarap.
