There is nothing more rewarding than being a mom, and seeing your child grow and develop. I love seeing pieces of myself in him and his open affection and love for me..his kisses, his hugs and inane blabberings (okay, that I can love to a certain level :P). The love I have for him is truly unconditional..and in truth, he has really taught me the real meaning of loving someone..:)


Being a mom has made me appreciate my own mother more..My mother is quite a character actually..very strong-willed, stubborn and critical. I've inherited some of her traits and that has led to quite a bit of friction during my younger days especially since I was a rather rebellious kid. I guess as a kid, I was oblivious to it all thinking that all she wanted to do was to make my life miserable. When I was in Sec school, most of my friends were allowed to go to those house functions and dates whereas our household had a strict curfew and boys then was a no-no (although that didn't stop me). In fact, I still managed to attend a fair share of functions by sneaking out of the house with the help of my siblings (yes, I was that naughty). But now that I'm a parent, I can now better understand why she saw the need to curtail my actions especially since I was 'wild' by nature. She is the reason why I have a uni cert actually. At the age of 20, was working full time in hotel as a waitress and having the time of my life! And she decided that my education was important and decided on my behalf to ship me off to Canada to further my studies..I remember being quite devasted then because I was enjoying myself so much and was so reluctant to part with my then-boyfriend. In retrospect, I was really so naive then!

I know mom has been really concerned about me especially since the breakup of my marriage..in fact, she took the news quite badly. She has told me that her only wish now is to see that all her children are all well taken care off and I think she's afraid that I may not be able to cope on my own, especially with a child. I have to constantly reassure her that I'm fine.. Lately too, she's been giving me and my sister her jewellery saying that she doesn't like to wear them much at her age and rather have someone who appreciates them wear it. Even though we were both reluctant to accept them, she kept insisting saying that it gives her great pleasure to do so (too bad I don't have any daughter that I can pass the jewellery & my collection of bags to).

Hope everyone made your mom happy today although it shouldn't be just on Mother's Day yah!

Aidan is such a lovely boy. if i were in your shoes, I'd also be proud of him.
I'm sure he's proud of you too. You'll be able to enjoy the fruit of your labour in due time.

hang in there..well, i guess all of us do know that being a mommy is definitely not easy, esp if one is a sahm... it is 'on the job training' most of the time..i too had my fair share of struggling when aidan was a mere babe..i can still remember his incessant crying especially when he was teething, my problems breastfeeding, my constant self blaming when anything goes wrong (eg. when he fell down the bed or ate soap :P)..actually, you'll encounter 'problems' along the way when he grows up but u'll learn to cope too. and if you do feel depressed as a result, do try to have an outlet and not keep it to yourself k. things should get better *hugs*

Yes we have..i was looking at some old pics recently and found so many of those we'd taken when our kids was not even 1 year old yet..

Actually, karen does do overseas assignment.she goes to Australia almost every month for photoshoot assignments. i think for singapore, if she can fix up 3 assignments within 4 days, the airticket cost is waived. and her charges are really really reasonable but that's not the point. More of that i love her pics :) I'm eagerly waiting for the CDrom to arrive..
