in a word. thoughts on motherhood at 10 P.M.

*pardon the grainy quality of the photo it is taken by my camera phone. 

i was in a corporate world for 8 years before i left it and decided to be stay-at-home mom. being a mother (and stay-at-home) is a very taxing, draining job. there were days i just want to pull all my heart out of my head. or hide in the bathroom and pretend there's no toddler is screaming outside the door. sometimes i just want to cover my ears so i won't hear her wailing. 

nobody was ever prepared to be a mother. 

i am blessed to have a very active, highly opinionated and intuitive girl, so most days by 5 o'clock in the afternoon with no naps i'm always drained. she's always climbing, always wanting to have a dance party, and always, always asking a million and one question. 

i do have a very "challenging" daughter as my brother points out. 

she maybe like that but i want her like she is now. i will never trade her for anything. i'm happy she's like that. i'm happy that she wants me all the time, clingy, and needy. i know this will not last forever.

so, tomorrow i will again chase her, dance with her and answers her one million questions. 

our photobooth session today.

indigo's favourite song especially if she wants me to hug her  around the neck .
