She’s just a tiny human being and yet I can already sense “me” in her. I’m not talking about the fact that she’s half me & half my husband but about her being her own… More
People don’t usually talk much about what happen to a women body after childbirth. The main focus is usually on the pregnancy, the delivery and life with a baby but what about the changes that occurs to a woman body after given birth?
Well I’ve decided to write about the changes that i noticed have happen to me after given birth to Haley. Of course, it doesn’t mean because I’ve experienced those changes that every women will undergo the same. Everyone is different as we all experience pregnancy and labor differently, the same will apply to our body after childbirth.
Oh gosh..I’m sitting here and writing to you guys and wondering where did the times go! I remember as if it was yesterday, I was telling my husband I would enrol Haley into a child care for 2018 as I needed some hours to myself to relax and be able to work on some project. Well today is the day! Haley is currently on her first day at child care and to be honest it was quite emotional dropping her off and saying Goodbye to her.
I guess all parents know there child is growing but sometime we just don’t want to admit it as we want them to stay our little baby for as long as possible. However, dropping her off today just hit me hard, because i had to admit to myself she’s no longer a baby but a toddler and soon enough it will not be at child care that I will be dropping her but at primary school.
She’s been at child care for over 2 hrs now and I still have’t done much haha! The room just feel so empty and quiet without her here. My mind just keep wondering on what she could be doing at this moment ~ is she happy at child care with all the toys, Is she missing me, Is she crying, Is she eating her food etc. As it’s her first day, the teacher recommend to only keep her for half day as it can be upsetting for children on their first day. Here I am waiting impatiently for the time to come for me to pick her up. I never would have thought I will miss her that much, not seeing her big cheeky smile or hearing her cheeky laugh and I even miss her pulling my hair & using my back as a horse haha!
” You don’t know what unconditional love is. You may say you do, but if you don’t have a child, you don’t know what that is. But when you experience it, it is the most fulfilling ever.” – Regina King
How many times have you heard the phrase, “She’s just a child” ~ She’s just a child she won’t remember or she’s just a child she doesn’t understand. Well i’ve heard it one too many times, so here I am writing about it!
To all those who believes because she’s just a child so she doesn’t understand what you teaching her or what is happening around her, well let me tell you how wrong you are! Because even if she’s just a child, she certainly understand everything we teaching her and she sees how people are behaving and she will copy and do exactly the same. Even I was surprise at the things that Haley knows, because I didn’t taught it to her but she saw me doing it and she copied it.
Like the title itself, 2018 will be a year where drastic change will be happening in my life but also my family life. As mention before my husband parents have a business in Vanuatu and my mother-in-law have advised my husband to take over their family business, otherwise she will closed it down. Like I said, me and Haley cannot live in Vanuatu as the lifestyle doesn’t suit us but also because Haley will be starting day care this year.
The one thing I love about children is how innocent they are. When you buy gifts for kids, the moment they see the wrapping paper their eyes just lit up and they smiled. They don’t even need to know what is inside the box, just the fact of receiving a gift is enough to make them happy and overjoy. Of course, once they open their presents and see what they got, they get more excited and impatient to play with it. It doesn’t matter to them whether they receive something they asked or didn’t asked for, because for a child gifts rhymes with happiness, grateful, joy, surprise, love, excitement etc.
2017 was a year that was filled with many tears, ups and downs but also a year filled with happiness and joy. I’m thankful for all the good and bad things that have happen during this year, as it has made me the person I am today but also shown me who are the people who truly care for me.
I woke up today to a pleasant surprise: a nomination for the Liebster Award. I feel honoured and grateful to Carolina toddler talk for nominating me.
Carolina has a great blog where she share her advice and give tips on speech and language development on baby. I always like reading her post because they are easy to relate to and some of the tips she gave have actually help me with my daughter. Thank you again Carolina for the nomination, it has brightened up my day.
To be honest I didn’t heard of the Liebster Award until i was nominated and didn’t know what it was until i did some research. The Liebster Award is a virtual award given to bloggers by other bloggers. The award is a way of discovering new blogs and sharing your favourite blogs with others.
The first week after we got back was a bit hard not only because of the jetlagged but to readjust ourselves to this new routine. My husband was working from 6am till 8pm everyday, so it was only me and Haley most of the time and let me tell you now i know how hard it is for all single mum out there raising their kids alone 🙇
Yes my daughter love to suck on her thumb, because it soothes her when she’s sick, it help her to relax when she’s upset and she simply just like it!
I’ve had gazillion of people telling me,i should stop her from sucking on her thumb because it will make her teeth crooked, she will hurt her thumb and it simply not the norms for people to suck on their thumb. Thank you to everyone who are concern for the wellbeing of my daughter but no i’m not gonna make her stop doing something that make her happy just because it doesn’t suit to your liking.
I thought a lot of whether I should write about this or not as some people might get offended, but I started this blog because i was tired of constantly hiding how i feel and for always focusing about how other people will be perceiving me or those around me. Writing out my stories and sharing my experience with all of you have made me felt better about myself and have allow me to lift up this weight i had on my shoulder. I’m grateful for all of you who take time to read my post and for those who take time to leave me a little note, thank you.
