A year shy of the dreaded 3-0

Yup, that's me. I just turned 29 last week.

Some people I know were terrified of turning 30. Some even pretended (and fooled themselves into thinking) they are 1 year younger. I can't understand why.

"Tell me next year how you will feel" writes my friend. Well, I guess she's right. I surmise it is still early for me to feel the depression of turning 30. If ever it hits me (or not), that is.

Just like post partum depression. I thought it was just overrated and theoretical. I never expected it to ACTUALLY happen to me. But it did.

Never say never!

PS. I had a mighty fine birthday. Hubby gave me (actually I asked..hehehe) an early present which I likey very much.

The day EJ turned 1

We're back in Maldives. The three-week vacation we had was short but fun and exciting.

EJ turned 1-year old last August 10! Can "I" believe it? "Time flies when you're having fun" is definitely true. I was excited on the day of his party. As if it was my own party. LOL!

EJ's birthday was a sweet and poignant moment. I was glad I survived the first year but at the same time I couldn't believe I no longer have a baby in my hand. He's moving into "toddlerhood". I was sad, excited, and a lil scared. Imagine the terrible twos?! But I won't go there yet.

Anyway, I'd say the party was a success. I know EJ wouldn't probably remember the party but I wish when he is older and he sees the pictures, he would somehow remember the fun, excitement and the love that surrounds him that day. And of course the day after. And the day after, and the day after....

Belated happy birthday my baby!

What working moms go through

I am on vacation and pardon my absence on this blog. I'll be quite busy for another two weeks or so.

I just want to share something though. This morning when we were about to leave the house, EJ cried and grabbed my shirt. He didn't want to let go of me. He cried and wailed and it tore my heart. If only we could bring him with us to the mall. But we couldn't because we had a lot of things to do.

I am SAHM since EJ was born and I just realized what the working moms have to go through everyday before they go to work.

This morning when EJ cried, I almost cried. I wanted to hug him and just stay in the house and play all day. If before I have lots of issues about being left at home with the baby, now I am thankful that I get to stay with my baby all day. I don't want to see and hear him cry. It pierces right through my heart.
