There were several times I said “mom” and blushed and then correct and shout my name. Surely you will think that my sister, her mother, bothered you this because let me tell you no.
I have heard many people say that being a mother is something that changes your life and surely must be true since those who said it already has a baby. For now, I’m not thinking about being a mom since I have other purposes in life, however, my sister’s son changed my life.
The little Enzo was born in 2011 and this little person has made my world turn around him. My older sister had it when she was 17 years old and the truth is that it was a hard blow for the whole family since our parents had a future for her because she had just finished high school.
My dad got very angry, really everyone. At that age you already know what sex is, what are contraceptive methods, at school, they taught us all that and technology was at our fingertips, so there is no excuse for an unwanted pregnancy to happen, is not it? Do you believe it?
In spite of everything, that baby arrived being a stranger, as I told you, my father was furious but when he was born, his eyes turned bright since he could not deny love to a being that was not to blame for his parents being irresponsible. However, I still resented my sister for failing her that way.
Now, in 2019, his anger was gone and we were the same family as before. If you ask me about Enzo’s dad, or he took over, he never showed up or anything, we did not look for him either because he did not need it. The love of a father is given by my older brother and my dad who take him to train soccer, go to the movies, play cars and more.
There was a time when I did not know how to carry it, at that time I was about 14 years old and I saw it so fragile that if I touched it I thought it was going to break, with time I was learning and well, we had to give it the opportunity for my sister to work.
In 2016, I finished my university career and the following year I got my degree, I was ready to work, however, we did not know how to make someone look after Enzo because my parents worked, the little boy’s mother too and my equal older brother.
So I sacrificed myself, so to speak, in order to take care of it. They do not know what those two years were like. Even though I took care of him for two years, I felt it would have been a lifetime. My habits changed overnight and I will tell you a little why.
I had to wake up early to prepare breakfast and lunch, also to put the uniform, then had to take him to school, return, go to the market, cook for lunch, pick it up in the afternoon, bathe, serve your food, play for a while , help him to do his homework, and by 6 o’clock in the afternoon, he was free.
That’s how my days were for two years, can you imagine how exhausting it was? However, I have to tell you that this coexistence was too beautiful. He had become so used to me that he wanted me to help him with his homework, to serve him his food, to take him to play with his friends.
There were several times I said “mom” and blushed and then correct and shout my name. Surely you will think that my sister, her mother, bothered you this because let me tell you no. It seemed good to her because I was like her second mother, but I never took away her mother’s authority.
I’ve been thinking for a long time about not having children because it’s my decision and I do not see myself as a mother, but with Enzo it’s different. He has made my life change completely, a child does that. A hug, a kiss, a caress, a “do you play with me?” It’s worth a lot.
Every day, the only thing I want to do when I wake up is to see him and watch over his dreams. Now he is 9 years old and he is a small responsible, that is what makes me happy. I know many of you can share this feeling with me because you know that despite being born of you, you raise it as if it were.
The best thing that could happen to me was him, it does not matter that I have been working without the time and that he has changed my plans, but I did a good job because according to what the pediatricians say, the age in which the children develop more It is up to five years old.
He is growing extroverted, he does his homework, he has many friends and he says he wants to be a footballer to “buy your makeup, aunt, just like you buy me my toys”. He knows that I love everything related to beauty. I thought it was very nice of him. Enzo is my nephew, he is not my son but he is part of me.
