Tweet Last night, as I usually do, I laid in bed with my Little Miss as I softly hummed a lullaby. With her head on the crook of my arm, I felt myself well up with emotions, quite unexpectedly. I breathed in the sweet scent of her, kissed the top of her head and tried […]

Tweet Aside from my Little Miss’ 10th month photos, it’s been a while since I posted anything and there are two things that can explain this. First, horror of horrors – my Little Miss had gotten impetigo. There is no cutesy way of saying it – she contracted it from an insect bite (read: not […]

Tweet It has only been 8 months but already parenting has taught me some things about myself and the people around me that I doubt I would have learned any other way. I would like to share with you what they are, thus far: 1. I’m not as squeamish as I used to be. – […]

Tweet Glancing up from the bed where I am playing with the Little Miss, I see My Man heading towards us. I think to myself, “Finally, I can put away the clothes piled on my chair.” It’s been a long day – the normally sweet-tempered Little Miss has been resisting her naptime and I am getting […]

Tweet 1 month and 8 days has passed since that Monday morning when I woke My Man up at 3:20 telling him I thought that my water bag just broke. A bit groggy from our late night, it took him a while to process what he’d just heard and I had to repeat what I […]
