In the blink of an eye.

So the grand date for bean is finally selected. I do not have months left to anticipate the arrival of the little one, it’s down to days. I’m excited and scared at the same time… As the husband puts it, my being is ‘one in a million’ cause I cry too easily and often over silly things. This time it’s not over silly things but perhaps I’m scaring myself a little too much @@ I have opted for caesarean over […]

Hunger management.

Bean cannot stand being hungry. It’s like she’s accustomed to eating at all times, snacks or not, and sometimes I think that my temporary add on salary is not gonna be enough to cover the food expenses we’re both chalking up!

Come to think about it, I probably could have eaten in the living room as loudly as […]
