Everything in life has its nice sides, as well as those that are not so nice. Being a SAHM has its own fair share of ups and downs. It’s been a tiring journey, and it comes with moments of sadness, frustration, anger and loneliness. It involves a good amount of sacrifice and loss of freedom. It is a thankless job. But on the other hand, the time I get to spend with him is irreplaceable, and I know that not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to stay home with their kids even if they wanted to. I get to be there for his firsts; I get to spend time with him without having to worry about work and other related stresses, and I’m thankful for that. I just hope that he’ll have a happy childhood, and that he’d grow up to become a kind person. Most importantly, I hope that he’ll grow up having the courage to try different things, and to chase his dreams, knowing that no matter what difficulties he might face, or how beaten and tired he might be, this home will always be here for him and we’ll be there to support him. It’s been a long 18 months, but at the same time he’s growing so fast!
These pastel highlighters from Daiso are really pretty, and it’s only S$2 for a pack of 5. 👍 I wanna get the “bright colors” version next time. #daiso
Enjoying a quiet morning alone with my green tea frappe. #starbucks (The sakura goods always sell out so fast every year.)
Found a bunch of old chinese calligraphy paintings I did in primary school. My drawings were definitely better than my writing. I have no idea what was up with those penguins in the last picture though...
Watching the clouds move is always calming. #cloudporn Had a crappy flight back to Singapore. Everything had been going great - the baby had fallen asleep, and the plane was on the runway waiting for takeoff. But then came the announcement that 3 passengers didn’t board the plane, and their luggage, which had already been loaded, had to be removed for security reasons. So we had to taxi back to the terminal and wait for the ground staff to retrieve the luggage. Baby woke up startled by the announcement and never fell asleep again; the flight finally took off 2 hours after the initial departure time, and 4 hours with an awake, occasionally screaming baby isn’t fun at all. And to top it off, the canopy of his stroller was lost during the flight. 💢💢💢 But at least we all made it home safe and sound... just really exhausted.
Sunrise. Another day begins.
These are cute! Not that I need any pumpkins now though...
