A Parent’s Love

The 2019 Parental Event is what a hottie single daddy like me needs. I just turned forty, and a few years back, my partner Ethan and I went to my hometown in the Philippines and stayed there for a bit. Our laundrywoman got pregnant, and to make it short, she gave up the baby. She even told me to take care of her. I had this chubby and brown, with so much hair, little baby girl in my arms, and I could not resist. It was love at first sight for me with Allyna and I have been her mommy, er, daddy ever since.

And so you read, I am a hottie single daddy. That is because Ethan up and left with no word. I guess he is not ready for the life of a parent, and I know that about him. There was no doubt in my mind that Ethan can be a father. He loves Allyna. I know that for sure, but Ethan has always been the bachelor type. I could not tie him down. Why did I have that split moment wherein I thought he would be responsible for Allyna?

Anyway, so now, I have this beautiful four-year-old looking for Daddy Ethan, and I do not know what to say except – “Love, he is working at a very faraway place. And won’t be coming back. It will be just you and me, peas and carrots, from now on, Love. Okay?” When she smiles, my world melts. I love this child so much, it’s as if I gave birth to her.

We will be fine. We will be fine. We will be fine. I kept saying that to myself during the event. There were lots of first-time parents there and even single moms and dads too. And no. I did not meet anyone if you are wondering. Right now, I will be focusing on AllynaBoo and me. My love. She is my life now, and ever since her first breath.
