31st Dec 2009

I've recovered! All ready to welcome a whole new year ahead. Hmm, the last blog post of the year, what shall it be? Let's do a mini evaluation on Mum and Dad's first time parenthood.

To Mummy:
1. Did you think I've brought much inconvenience to you and Dad?
"Jazzelle, inconvenient isn't the word to use. It's part and parcel of growing a family, a baby is either now or later. I'm glad that you came early, it takes so much energy to take care of you, which I'm glad I still have. I've learnt to include you in almost whatever activities we could, such that I think I'm an expert in bringing you almost everywhere now."

3. Did you think Dad was a great Dad?
"He's good in making you smile and laugh. Other than that, he probably needs more involvement in my daily activities. Ops!"

To Daddy:

1. Did you think Mum was a great Mum?
"Off course! She beared the labour pain, gone through 9 months of motherhood conversion, and is still doing a good job. Good training ground for the 2nd one. Ops!"

Some flash back, I guess 2009 wasn't an easy year for Mummy. No doubt, my arrival was the greatest miracle in her life. In just a year, she felt like she has learnt through and experience much. Still lacking some courage to talk about her encounters, but she knows life goes ahead. Last year, she left her job without knowing I was in her womb, and since then she hadn't been able to get a job. Even meeting a disgusted employer who contracted her till I was birthed, not wanting to bear the maternity cost and abscence. How does it feel? Ask a mum working mum and you'll know how helpless it was to not be paid for the 4 months maternity.

Pregnancy wasn't easy for her too, with me in her womb, Mum and Dad went ahead with their holiday plan to USA. And there she didn't enjoy the entire trip because of bad nausea. From these, a very discouraged mummy picked herself up gradually and found joy upon my arrival.

Well, it's sore, but she has moved on.

Looking ahead and not looking back, life is still beautiful. Hereby, wishing everyone a happy 2010! May you be properous in every aspects of your life - health, wealth, career and family!
