Frustrations

hay, how children could break one's heart?! mine got a breaking today as yaman refused to chat with me and seems to pretend to and eventually went to sleep. we were chatting last monday when the webcam at home went bust because of a loose cable connection. yumi said that yaman kept on calling 'mommy! mommy!' over the screen, until she has to be told that our connection has gone kaput. i miss my kid so much and with what happened, makes me wonder what am i doing here in perth?! however i praise technology it's still not enough and looking at each other onscreen remains a pale substitute to holding your child close, feeling her warm and snug, peer into her eyes and assure her that mommy's near, mommy's coming home soon, don't be mad now, i'm here. but even at a tender age, yaman deserves to be. she probably could not forget, her own frustration too.
