    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 State of Being. Flat.

This is me. It’s a photo I took for Emma’s blog [http://www.emmathespy.wordpress.com] a week or so ago, but which I didn’t use. As with a ton of other thoughts I’ve been meaning to blog about, which I didn’t get to do. I wish I could write more. It’s not so much a discipline issue these […] Read more…

Once Upon a Five Years Ago

“Here’s what’s going to happen in case I expire,” Augz began to explain. “Don’t say that,” I said. “Wait, are you having some kind of premonition???!!” “No, no, I’m just saying, here’s the plan… cos you never know.” “Stop saying that!!!” That was the conversation we had two nights ago, on the last night I […] Read more…

Going Back 2 Years in Time

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/10/29/going-back-2-years-in-time/ My angel of the morning It’s been four days since I left my baby behind at home, to deliver the new one at Mount Alvernia. To be honest, this entire experience over the last four days has been more  like travelling two years back in time. Some distance from these last four days, and some […] Read more…

Anticipating Emma T-Minus 1 Day

As it turns out, Emma isn’t going to be a Halloween baby! So today proved to be our last gynae visit and as usual, the good doctor says, “Oh, she’s really low. May not make it to 31st, you know?” Well, he’s been saying that for the last month and that’s been making me extra […] Read more…

A Cup of Tea

I’m not a tea drinker. Not because I don’t enjoy it, but simply because it makes my stomach churn in funny ways after the pleasure dissipates. But I’ve always built something romantic in my head around the idea of tea-drinking – something soothing, comforting, English, proper, and nurturing. For the last five months, since we’ve […] Read more…

The Boy Who Made His Parents Weep

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/10/22/the-boy-who-made-his-parents-weep/ Mr Cow & Family The other night, Matthew had both Augz and I weeping as we were putting him to sleep. We were, in fact, spontaneously moved to tears by his innocent act of surrender of his favourite cows. You see, Mr Cow* (the leftmost one) is his favourite toy. It was given by […] Read more…

AMEN!

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/10/17/amen/ Last night would officially be the night when Matthew finally clasped his hands properly for a decent “Amen!” It’s one of those small accomplishments that are just so cute to celebrate, especially when he seems so proud of it. Thanks to Karen who has always shared how she had prayed with Timothy (her son, […] Read more…

Anticipating Emma T-Minus 15 Days

“One more month to go?” a friend asked when we met up yesterday, referring to when Emma is going to be due. “No, two more weeks!” I chirpily announced. And then for the rest of the day after that, I found myself sinking into anxiety and panic. Two more weeks! Where did the time go? […] Read more…

“Write about the monsters under your bed”

Read an interview with Elizabeth Gilbert on Oprah on my Flipboard a couple of weeks ago, which was so edifying as I was finding myself right smack in the middle of a re-quest for writing. She’s the author of “Eat, Pray, Love” and well, while I didn’t read the book, and love the movie largely […] Read more…
