Mom’s sundo diaries with daughter pinch the hearts of fellow parents, netizens

-

A video of a first-time mom from Cainta, Rizal recently went viral on social media after she shared her daughter’s daycare journey.

In the video, Mommy Sarah Barrantes documented the first few days of her daughter in school showing some emotional development through time.

According to her, she started taking videos so she can update her in-laws who are staying abroad.

“Naisip ko na mag-send ng mga videos, para makita nila ang development ni Fiann. ‘Yung pagpasok niya sa school, ang hirap ng transition lalo na kapag nakikita ko siyang umiiyak. Natatandaan ko first few days nung schooling niya, iiyak siya pagka-drop ko tapos ‘pag nabigay ko na siya sa teacher, pupunta akong CR malapit sa school niya tapos iiyak din ako,” Mommy Sarah told The Philippine STAR.

“Tapos mine-message ko ‘yung partner ko, sabi ko “tama ba tong ginagawa natin?” Kasi sabi nung lola ni Fiann, baka sumama ang loob nung bata. Pati ‘yung lola umiiyak din ‘pag pinapakita ko ‘yung mga video niya,” she added.

Since Baby Fiann was born on November 23, 2021, in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mommy Sarah was a bit worried about her communication skills with other people.

“Simula nung pinanganak siya habang lumalaki siya, nano-notice namin sobrang daldal niya talaga. Pero since pandemic baby siya, takot po siya sa tao. Minsan ‘pag may nakakasulubong siyang bata, alam mong gusto niyang makalaro pero natatakot siya. Tapos ‘pag may magha-hi sa kanyang matanda, iiyak agad siya,” she recalled.

That’s when Mommy Sarah decided to enroll Baby Fian at a daycare center at 19 months (about 1 and a half years) old.

Adding, “Sanay ako ng kasama ko siya 24/7. Parang napapraning ako, hindi ko siya maiwan sa ibang tao. Na-feel ko kasi na super clingy niya. Kailangan niya talaga ng social interaction sa ibang tao.”

She admitted that she was also emotional seeing her daughter always crying after school.

“Ganun talaga siguro kapag nanay ka. Syempre ingat na ingat ka diyan kasi unang anak mo. Tapos hindi mo pa alam kung anong gagawin kasi nga first time mom ka. So maganda rin na nakita namin ‘tong daycare na ‘to kasi nag-improve ako as a nanay and nag-improve din siya as a kid,” she shared.

But she was comforted by the fact that she saw a big improvement in Fian’s emotional and social communication.

“‘Yung sinasabi nilang it takes a village to raise a child, totoo talaga kaya kailangan mo ng support ng pamilya.  Ibang-iba na po talaga lalo na sa pagdi-deal niya sa ibang tao kasi dati po takot na takot siya. Ngayon very friendly na siya. Siya na mismo ‘yung nagha-hi, siya na ‘yung kumakausap sa mga tao, nakikipaglaro sa ibang bata,” Mommy Sarah said.

While she is aware that some parents don’t like the idea of enrolling their kids in school at an early age, Mommy Sarah has a message for them.

“Naniniwala ako na, ‘Mothers know best.’ Sundin mo kung ano ‘yung tingin mong mapapabuti ‘yung anak mo. At the end of the day, kung ano ‘yung makalakihan ng anak mo, magre-reflect ‘yun sa kung ano ka as a nanay,” she stressed.

As of this writing, the video has already garnered more than eight million views on TikTok.

“Hala nakakaiyak naman 🥺 ang ganda ng transition ni baby na happy na siya sa huli,” a netizen commented.
