countdown 22: multi-tasking and forgetfulness

Forgetfulness is one of my flaws. Just tonight, I misplaced my husband’s umbrella. I will have to replace that bit-expensive piece of an umbrella.

countdown 24/23: reality and realizations

I missed a day! Day 24 was just too full for me so I wasn’t able to post a blog, but let me play catch-up. Saturday is almost over. Our family spent most of the day lounging in bed and catching up on sleep. The toddler is still keeping us up at night. I wouldn’t … Continue reading

countdown 25: disappointments and dreams

mom me: sleepless nights

I’ve known it all along but i’m only gonna admit it out loud now – i’m an incompetent mom. I’m not saying it in an i’m-in-self-pity mode but as-a-matter-of-fact so that in admitting the problem, I may be empowered to address it. I had a very good yaya the first year of my baby’s life. … Continue reading
