Never in a million years would have I thought that having a child would change the way I react to different situations.

Wow! How time is flying by so fast. In 2 more months you will be 1 year old. This makes me sad because you will no longer be considered as a baby. You will be graduating to toddlerhood. In the same time, I am so proud of you. You have accomplished so much! You are walking with a walker since you’re 9 month old. Now you’re almost running with it and I… Read More

When you have kids, trying to achieve what you used to be able to do is nearly impossible. You have to change your mindset and let go of certain things and change your standard quite a bit.

Being bored with a kid is impossible. Every day is a new adventure. Yesterday he didn’t sleep through the night, last night he did. Go figure. Looks like it’s impossible to know when he will sleep.

When you think you have it all under control, sometimes it’s just a deception and things go back the way they were. Kids can play tricks with you.

Having a baby is difficult enough, but never in the world I would have thought of raising a child during a pandemic… It is just making it even more difficult… If we could pause the newborn stage until this mess is over it would be fine, but now that my little guy is 7 months old, introducing the world to him is very difficult… His growing needs to explore is making things… Read More
