    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.

A Chip Off the Old Block

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2014/09/24/a-chip-off-the-old-block/ He silenced me first with a look that made my heart skip a beat, and then kissed me firmly on my lips. Right there in the elevator that we were riding up to our house, I fell in love with him all over again. I don’t even remember what I was talking about, but […] Read more…

Fears, be at rest. The Prophecy has arrived.

http://emmaelizabethsmomma.wordpress.com/2014/09/19/fears-be-at-rest-the-prophecy-has-arrived/ There is one thing this little girl gave me almost right from the time she came into this world, which I shall forever be grateful for, and that’s the restoration of my sanity. Before she came, when there was only Matthew (and there would only be Matthew as far as Augz and I knew for […] Read more…

The Withdrawing Room

I have found a new sanctuary for myself… in the most unlikely of places. Unbelievably, the place that offers me some peace and quiet from my chaotic world both externally and within, is located in the heart of a kindergarten, with children ranging from two to five, running around, playing all around it. It was […] Read more…

Hello, baby.

http://emmaelizabethsmomma.wordpress.com/2014/09/02/hello-baby/ Just this evening, after I fed you and we were hanging around in the bedroom – just the two of us, I held you close and lay back on the pillow. You, who are usually insanely active and curious even just before bedtime, and who scoot all around the bed to explore every available […] Read more…

The Things You Don’t See

Gone are the days when I could faithfully upload a “Matthew in the Morning” or “An Emma A Day”; blogging too, has become an exercise routine I long to fulfil but mostly fail at keeping up. Why? Largely because the toddler is consuming all my energy. This bouncing ball of energy who talks a lot […] Read more…

Bedtime: Heaven or Hell?

Once upon a time, bedtime routines used to be my favourite part of the day. That was when there was just Matthew to read and sing to, pray and cuddle with. These days, bedtime is just getting ridiculously painful and difficult. I’m actually blogging just to retreat into some writing space, to reclaim a bit of […] Read more…

You’ve Got To Be Kidding. Yup. Exactly.

A good friend thought of me when her office was preparing a book to feature personal stories about the realities of parenthood, complete with its joys and challenges. The book’s commissioned by the National Population and Talent Division, in partnership with BooksActually and DDB Group Singapore. It was launched in March by Minister Grace Fu, who […] Read more…

“I love you right up to the moon… and back”

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2014/05/13/i-love-you-right-up-to-the-moon-and-back/ Dear Matthew, As we lay in bed tonight, the way we do every night, with me feeling equally blessed to be mother to you and Emma, and also increasingly vexed with you continuing to roll about – and getting up and down – instead of going to sleep, you did something to turn the odds […] Read more…

A Choice of Mummies?

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2014/02/27/475/ 4am today: Matt wakes up sobbing brokenly, with big, fat tears rolling down his cheeks as he heaves and cries. It took me a while to make sense of what he was saying and it was either, “I don’t want other mummy!!!” or “I want other mummy!!!” He was trying to wriggle free of […] Read more…

Sharing Secrets, Revealing Truths.

This is my son. He is 26 months old. He has recently grown into what I call, a “full-blown running and talking toddler” because now he rattles on and surprises me everyday with quips of his own (he is cheeky by nature), a proper understanding of real words (like when he says “I want both” when asked to […] Read more…
