Confessions of the sick and sleepless

Another round of firsts for us around here, yay! My mini has been ‘Montessorized’ this fall at 2.5 years old. What is the big implication of this? Before this weekend, I was all “independent thinking”, “practical life skills”, “developing love of learning”. Yes, yes, check! Not so fast! While all of those are well and good — I haven’t been privy to what seasoned parents know as the FIRST YEAR […]

Everyday, she looks less like a baby. Everyday, she gets more independent. It’s a constant push and pull between pride and struggling to keep her at bay. And I know there’s no stopping it.  So today, I relish the numerous times when she says “moh cuddahs, Mama” because the start of preschool is only a few weeks away; and my heart breaks a little at every thought of her going […]

Traveling with a toddler anywhere can be challenging. Our little one has traveled since since was four months old and it’s been a relative breeze — she’s been to four states in the US all within 1-4 hour flying times. But traveling seven hours across the Atlantic was beyond intimidating. I thought I was going to have to double up on anxiety meds and drink up all the alcohol on […]

Hope you all had a great weekend. Even though we had a busy weekend, I’m still feeling the great effects of a mini-getaway from Saturday. I went to finally check out and stay overnight at my friends’ camper – it’s a gorgeous 1980s airstream that they gutted and renovated, and it’s been featured in House and Home Magazine. It’s only 1.5 hours away but it was such a treat to […]

Chronically Exhausted

Not to sound like such a Whining Winnie, but maaaaan, I’m tired. I’m exhausted all the time. I’m exhausted from not exercising because I’m too tired to exercise. I’m tired when I wake up in the morning because I’ve had a shitty sleep even if my daughter slept through the night. I’m tired during her naptime so I also take a nap, but after 20 minutes, I’m still too sleepy […]

Coming to motherhood this late in the game has been very eye-opening (newsflash: I’m not a young new mom). Before having my daughter, I used to be somewhat busy.  I worked as a Marketing Communications manager and it required a lot of networking events and committee meetings for me to go to.  Even at my busiest times, I remember having to be able to look forward to an afternoon, or […]
