Anticipating Emma T-Minus 30 Days but it’s still All About Matthew

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/anticipating-emma-t-minus-30-days-but-its-still-all-about-matthew/ Recently, I read an article about how we should not hoard items in our lives, cos it’s basically a mentality built on “overabundance” and “excess”, especially since we live in a time where we can easily get our hands on what we need. Rather, we should just purchase what we absolutely need instead of […] Read more…

Anticipating Emma T-minus 31 days

Nesting instincts definitely kicked in a week or two ago. We’ve managed to get almost everything sorted out and what remains are things that I would prefer not to do this early – like sterilising bottles, etc. I hope we haven’t left anything out. Physically, I can’t wait for Emma to be born. Being pregnant […] Read more…

God Moment of the Day (Monday)

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/09/10/god-moment-of-the-day-monday/ I was almost a wreck when I left home for Landings on Monday evening. Matthew was fine in the care of our new helper – all he did was look forlornly at me as I bade him goodbye (in a somewhat upbeat manner to mask the anxiety I was feeling). I was sure he […] Read more…

The Hubz’ Big 33.

This is one birthday celebration FAIL, I am ashamed to admit. For the first time ever, I felt defeated in planning a birthday surprise… of sorts! Largely because I didn’t take into proper account how little time I have on my hands with a toddler on those hands and no time at all in the […] Read more…

Prayer of My Heart

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/08/07/prayer-of-my-heart/ Sometimes, at nights mostly, as I put Matthew to sleep, I still find myself pained by the thought of losing my baby. I say “still find myself” because this is a fear I’m supposed to have worked through. But it still returns, every now and then, when I’m not careful with wandering thoughts, or […] Read more…

My vocation away from church

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/07/04/my-vocation-away-from-church/ I found the very thing I never even knew was missing from my life, is how I describe my Catholic identity. This photo here, captures that very moment when I was baptised (10 April 2004) and the subsequent years after was when my faith was nurtured, tested, solidified and constantly renewed, with every bump […] Read more…

3 days to The Big Move

At one point, it did seem like we were never going to move. But here we are, three days to The Big Move. Three-and-a-half years of marriage and five moves later, this is by far the toughest move yet. We will literally be moving into an almost blank unit, since a lot of our furniture […] Read more…

Packing… & unpacking…

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/05/28/packing-unpacking/ Tuesday 280513: Day 01 without helper and husband with me. It’s just me and Matthew today, the whole day for 14 hours, from 7am to 9pm. Our helper has gone home, and Augz went back to work after a day off yesterday to settle our house reno. Thank God for my in-laws’ helper to […] Read more…

Enough is Enough.

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/enough-is-enough/ Over the weekend, our happy little boy became such a spoilt, bratty monster. He wanted what he wanted, and if he didn’t get it, or if we so much as said “no”, he would start crying and screaming like he had just been chastised in the worst way possible. In fact, we didn’t even […] Read more…
