Bones, bones, rise up!

Let’s talk today about laziness. Why? Why??? Because it’s a condition that eludes me much these days. Lol. So, as I’m the one blogging (read: talking) here, so you just have to help me by reading (read: listening). I’ll rant a bit. A long, long time ago (dramatic, right?), there were days when I could…Read more Bones, bones, rise up!

Sappy all the way

I recall the very first time(s) I witnessed my baby smile back at me. Wow! Heart-stopping. It felt so genuine and as though it had been thought of for a long time prior to it actually happening. And it’s not as if I’d done anything especially nice to her for me to deserve it. I…Read more Sappy all the way

Like when she put her hand in the toilet bowl to touch the water. I caught her just before…Read more The art of mothering – pt. 3

Parent away!

Boy am I learning a lot in this journey of being a parent. One major thing, which I’ll dwell on today, is the issue of laziness.   Now, I realize I haven’t gone far in the parenting deal. There are people who are parents of 6-year-olds, 12-year olds, 30-year-olds. So I’m clearly just beginning. I’d…Read more Parent away!
