My Proud Little Big Boy
July 12, 2016 9:06pm CST
He is 10 years old and he will always be my baby. When he was 6, our maid left so its only him and his 10-year old sister left in the house to take care of themselves in going to school. They had bus service but they had to take a bath themselves and do other things. Before I left to work I made sure that everything was ready, their food, their uniform, snacks in school and everything that they needed. Even then it never stopped me from worrying and leaving the house with a heavy heart...my boy would hug and kiss me and saying..."don't worry Mommy, remember? I am your little big boy now and I can take care of my self and "ate" (big sister)... ...with those words...my worries would be replaced by pride...

oh, so sweet of him. I hope he grows up to some one you can really be proud of. It's dangerous to have a maid now a days, teaching them to be independent and responsible is not something kids must learn but it's a must now a days. i wish for their good future

Your children are independent! I think it's good for them to learn to manage that, though I understand how worrying a mother can be. It's so sweet that he said that and comforted you too. He is certainly a little big boy that makes you proud!
