I am back! After a long and painful 3 weeks, we are in our new house, half-unpacked and nearly settled in. There are many more things that need doing to this old house, but we’ve made progress in making it ours.
Little E has been adjusting to the house impeccably. Sleeping on his big boy bed from night 1 (with a lot of time spent on the floor by the door as well). He loves his “chikkin”, calling out to them every minute he’s outside. He is his grandfather’s clone when it comes to loving the outdoors, preferring being out than in. I think we have made the right decision on this house in that respect :)
Mr E is the sole person responsible for the house renovation, working relentlessly, even after a whole day at work. I’m sure he is now starting to question why did we not pay someone to do them instead. My poor love :)
Me? I am still working on myself. There has been a lot of soul searching amidst the move and renovation. This brings me to the purpose of this post.
With recent life events, I will not have the same amount of time to write much in the near future. I would like to thank every each one of you for coming in my journey thus far. Motherhood had certainly been a tough personal ride for me. Painful childhood memories brought forward a lot of questions that will probably never be answered, affecting my confidence in myself to be the kind of mother I wish to be. I am still working on them :) One day, when I am brave and ready, perhaps I will share some of those questions with you.
Again, thank you for making me feel like I am not alone. Hopefully I will get more me-time sometime soon as blogging had been something I enjoyed.
I am going to leave you with a lesson learnt from last week:
A good role model is one who is perfectly imperfect. One who came up tops after a rocky climb. One who persevered and remained strong, despite life’s troubles. A good role model is never perfect.
Good bye for now. I wish you very happy days to come :)
