    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.

The Missing Father

Today happens to be World Cancer Day, as I found out this morning at Marymount Kindy when the assembly lifted a prayer for all those suffering from cancer. So instead of peeking to see if Matthew had his eyes closed as instructed, I closed mine to join in the prayer. After all, today is also […] Read more…

Our Song

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2014/02/04/our-song/   25 months after Matthew’s birth, and I’ve finally found “our song”. It just happened one morning last week while on the way to school. Class95 played it, it was one of my favourites, and I heard the lyrics loud and clear with the ears of my heart. It is a love song, yes, […] Read more…

11 months to Christmas

“In the blink of an eye and the beat of a heart…” we are almost through with the first month of 2014. For me, I’ve settled quite comfortably into a new daily routine. For one who’s always loved school, but hated waking up for it, I am now wide awake when my alarm rings at […] Read more…

Goodbye Baby, Hello Toddler

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2014/01/19/goodbye-baby-hello-toddler/ To be honest, these days, I’m not quite sure how to be Matthew’s momma. All the emotions, ideas and instincts that had come so unexpectedly naturally with Matthew’s entrance into my life seem to have become tangled into a great big mess of uncertainty, confusion and a little bit of depression too, now that […] Read more…

We Will Never Let You Go

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2014/01/09/we-will-never-let-you-go/ It is this look on Matthew’s face that chokes me up. He got distracted by the teachers, and then realised he’s lost us. Although I make it a point not to just disappear but always tell him when I’m leaving, I doubt I made myself clear because any clearer would mean too much alert […] Read more…

2014.

It is funny how this photo of my dad walking away is the one that captures the essence of how I’m looking forward to this new year – with a lot of anticipation of all the good things to come, excitement over what’s in store, and determination to make some serious changes in my life. […] Read more…

On Your 2nd Birthday

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/12/29/on-your-2nd-birthday/ Dear Son, Happy 2nd Birthday. You are two years old now, and that’s almost unbelievable to me sometimes. So much has been accomplished this year for all of us, and among the many changes and milestones we’ve reached as a family, you’ve scored your fair share of victories well on your own. I look […] Read more…

The Little Big Brother

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/12/04/the-little-big-brother/ A month later, and it seems as if we have all settled down into a new routine with the addition of Emma in the family. More or less, anyway. My concerns about Matthew feeling excluded, replaced, or not being able to understand how and why he’s no longer the sole apple of our eyes, […] Read more…

Emma vs Elisabeth

As it turns out, Emma may actually be an Elisabeth. I had my suspicions for a while, especially when she, well, just feels like an Elisabeth sometimes. In my head, I toy with the idea of calling her “Lizzie”. And then Augz revealed that he had almost called her “Ellie” a few times. Hmm. All along, […] Read more…
