What a long hiatus it has been..
I have been very very busy. adjusting as a mother of two takes forever for me cuz i am nowhere near good at this.
Watching both of them grow everyday has been an incredible blessing...everyday I keep reminding myself that they will never be the same as days pass by.
Tia will not roleplay with her magic clip princesses forever. and wont come to and say "I love you very much mommy" when she's older.
And Riz...he will not crawl forever. and i am desperately trying to etch the memory of him crawling and exploring every possible nook and cranny he can get in, in my mind. since I didnt get to do the same with Tia last time.
My maid ran away. this is the 2nd maid who ran away. Indonesian maids are hopeless. u are nice to them and they are grateful to you and all and then the next day they creep out of the gate. The first one crept out at night and came back at down. this one ran away from my moms house and i found love notes in the exercise book we gave her. geez.
So I'm really tired of being fooled and waste my money on these uneducated people and decided to cope with not having one at all. for good. I have to say we had beter privacy as a family since then...n my children arent attached to a stranger anymore. I do have crazy mad days when i feel so fed-up-please-i-need-a-break but i hope it's just part of getting used to doing everything by myself.
So what does it feels like to be a SAHM? Sometimes i feel like ive been washing and washing everything forever and the clothes are never ironed. I wash milk bottles one after another the entire day. I vacuumed the house with riz in my Boba carrier on my back. sampai terlentok2 tidur dia. To get things done I rented a playard from www.rentatoys.com so my living room area serves as a big playpen to Riz. and whats sad at the moment is...i had to send tia to my parents during the day..til daddy comes home:( I need to get things sorted and bring her home where she belongs. The days are long especially when my husband does locums...that can never change because i dont work fulltime anymore..and its a truth that i have to get used to. alah kalau i still kerja pun dia sibuk berlocum gak. I also juggle in some sewing...making tutu skirts for the lil girls out there to twirl in. eceh. so my entire day is filled with so many things to do. busy bee sungguh. more than when i was working last time. heheh.
Thanks to the runaway maid, i am busy like this and forgotten Riz's monthly shirt shoot:( I missed the 7th month. yaaargh stress. but here's the 6 months shirt shoot and a video of him practicing the crawl.

I am amazed at how Riz starts crawling really early...but then again he's a boy and apparently they achieve physical milestones faster. hehe. now at 8 months omg he's everywhere. climbing and cruising everywhere. good thing is, less falls too. cuz he practice day and night. lol
