    The Hubz & I

  • Our Little Prince, Matthew

    “The Light of My Life” ~ Never did I know how wide my heart could stretch and how much love I have to give, until you came into my world.

  • Our Little Flower, Emma

    “You Complete Me” ~ You restored me, you made me whole again, and my little boo-boo, I’m so glad you’re here.

  • Maya & Inca

    We cannot love every animal in the world, but we can always embrace the privilege to love those that come our way.

Mostly Momma, But Not Just.

If I am 100% mother, is there still a part of me left that’s anything else? That’s the question I had been pondering last month when I decided to follow that little voice inside me that was asking me to revamp the blog. One thing that I knew for sure was that I wanted to […] Read more…

The Day I First Lost Dad

28 August 2009: Dad’s car had to go to the workshop and he asked that I follow him so I could drive him home while his car got left behind. Like a typical Merc driver (I apologise if this offends your sensibilities but well, you guys know what you’re like!), he weaved in and out […] Read more…

What F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Taught Me About Being A Mother

https://emmaelizabethsmomma.wordpress.com/2015/02/11/what-f-r-i-e-n-d-s-taught-me-about-being-a-mother/ Friends who have known me well enough – or long enough – know how much I love the sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S. for having been the solace, entertainment and somewhat a life guide as I stepped from adolescence into young adulthood. My friends and I grew up together with this sitcom: we fell in love when those f.r.i.e.n.d.s. […] Read more…

The regrets that are too few to mention

On this night, one line from Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” repeats itself in my head: “Regrets, I’ve had a few, but then again, too few to mention…” as I tuck my babies to sleep. Truthfully, there is nothing to regret, but ruefully, maybe just one or two. No cause to be upset about as these […] Read more…

What Will I Change For My Kids

Many times, I think about how my kids will be on to me. Sooner than I think, now that my eldest has turned three and is wildly sensitive to everything, and my youngest is becoming sentient. Before I know it, they will realise this mummy actually doesn’t know everything (as Matthew sort of expects me to), […] Read more…

May there always be Wolves in the Walls

The story goes: There are wolves in the walls and when they appear one night, the family dashes out of the house, with the girl’s pig-puppet being left behind. Obviously, she wants to retrieve her toy, but her mother says, “We can get you a new one.” This isn’t even the main plot of the […] Read more…

https://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2015/01/27/the-firsts-at-school/ My dear “I want to grow up and be a big boy so I can do many big boy things” baby boy, you who just said that to me tonight before you fell asleep, Meet your very first classmates, and see how your very first class photo already looks quite dated. Today, you said […] Read more…

Sarge, the Lost Sheep

For months now, we have lost the practice of letting Matthew bring any toy to Mass. We had started when he was way younger and had begun to covet other children’s toys and we thought it better to have something to quieten him down at Mass. Recently, we’ve decided to only let him bring his children’s […] Read more…
