Alayna has gone to sleep about 2 hours ago, and Nadri is still on his way home. Which means that today, he only spent half an hour with her this morning before he left for work. I feel bad for him because I know he really misses her. He even left his previous job (which had crazy working hours) because he felt like he was missing out on a lot.
His current job is not too bad. He reaches home around 8 p.m everyday (except busy days like today) so he gets half an hour with her before she goes to sleep. Not much, but at least it's something. Sometimes he comes home during lunch hour all the way from KL to Shah Alam just to get that extra few minutes with her.
I feel truly blessed because my job allows me to be with her most of the day everyday. But at the same time, I feel like we don't get enough bonding time, just the three of us.
Weekdays are totally out because by the time he comes home, she's already sleepy and getting ready for bed. So he'll cuddle her, sing some songs, have a chat and then Alayna will look for me to put her to sleep.
We basically only have weekends.
Two days sounds enough right? But not when you take into account her naps (2 hours at 10am and another hour at around 4pm), her bedtime at 8.30 p.m, her class on Sundays and having to make time for both grandparents (first grandchild for both sides, you can imagine). I know that they want more time with her but so do we. We try to accommodate everyone but the end of the day, the priority is for the 3 of us to bond as a family.
Anyway, last week he came home extra early so we decided to take her outside to play. Her favourite thing to do now is ride her bike to our neighbour's house and watch their shih-tzu hehe.
Sigh. How I wish that there are more hours in a days, or more days in a week.
