The Husband

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

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

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

Our pad, a work-in-progress

It’s 10.30pm, my baby has been asleep since 9pm, and I’ve just finished with the household chores – simples ones, like washing up and packing after Matt – and have finally sat down to unwind for a bit before I turn in. A packet of chilli-flavoured potato chips is what

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

Instant Tears

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/05/21/instant-tears/ An ordinary Monday afternoon. Mucking around with my son in the living room. He climbs the couch and indicates that he wants to sit on the couch “like a big boy”, as I’ve been teaching him to do. I take my spot beside him, and in the midst of

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.

One of those moments

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/one-of-those-moments/ “If today is the end of it all, it would be enough and complete for me,” said Augz one day after the Saturday (several weeks ago) when we brought Matthew to the SingKids indoor playground at Changi Airport. Needless to say, the boy had lots of fun, especially on
