Mommy of two

I am now entering my 30th week of my second pregnancy. A lot of people are asking me how this pregnancy differs from my first. Well the pregnancy itself hasn't felt very different, apart from increased aches and pains. It's more the experience that feels different. I experience a lot of mommy-guilt and more mental...

Female blame

Since the dawn of the written word, the faltering of the male species has been credited to the female existence. Nevermind the common sensibility in attributing the male decision-making process to morals. Them females is evil! Let's look at the depiction of sirens, for example. A whole ship-load of unsuspecting, fine sailors, is irrevocably drawn... Continue Reading →

The Scariest moments

One of the most frightening thoughts that can creep into your mind as a parent is the thought of something bad happening to your child. My mother has always said "I wish it could be me" whenever I've been sick. I cannot express how deeply and sincerely I understand this expression now. This last Monday... Continue Reading →

4 Months

Oliver is 4 months old now! What the heck, man. One moment this kid's lying in my arms, the size of a tiny football... the next he's this butterball who will stare you down with an attitude comparable to Miranda Priestly. I cannot understand or express the incredulous scale that my heart now measures to.... Continue Reading →

Quarter of a year

My baby is now 3 months old. It feels like a lifetime ago since we brought him home from the hospital. A lifetime ago and yet he seemed to grow up in the blink of an eye. When did he change from a little bean staring at lights to this small boy who makes eye... Continue Reading →

Be humble or be humbled.

There's no denying I can be one arrogant piece of work sometimes. There are times when I have the pride of a lion and the self-awareness of a 200lb lapdog. I can unintentionally come off as a know-it-all. When I realize that my head doesn't fit through the door frame, I humble myself by remembering... Continue Reading →
