The household was kept awake by my nephew's incessant crying, which started at roughly 2 am and only really ceased around 7 am...

I left him wrapped in his baby blanket and nestled on my cousin's bosom... sniffling and whimpering from exhaustion... finally falling asleep... feeling every bit the misery of desertion and a mother's absence but unable yet to comprehend what it is. Just that, in his own small way, he's hurt by it.

(Nope, my hipag didn't leave him for good... she just flew to Davao for two weeks to work)
