those were the days

this upcoming 30th, my little man is turning a year and a half old.


i am surprised at how fast time seems to be going. i only wish that it could slow down a tiny little bit so that i can enjoy more of his childhood --- remember each of his every expressions, engrave how tiny his hands and feet are in my mind and cherish all those firsts in his life... from smiles to babbles, grins and crocodile tears, his first crawl, first tooth, first owie, first step... every precious little moment that seems to be just slipping right through my fingers.

though i love him so much more now as a toddler, i do miss those days when he was a tiny little helpless baby. when all he wanted to do was cuddle and be held, rocked and sang to. i used to spend endless hours at night unable to sleep just looking at his face and thinking... "he's gorgeous and he is absolutely mine!" ... now i spend countless hours in the day missing him madly and looking forward to my evenings and weekends when i get to spend all my hours with him.... selfishly trying to keep him awake at most times to be able to do as much in so little time.

though he will forever be labelled a "baby" in my eyes, i still can't believe i now have a toddler in my arms.

father time, could you please just slow down a little for us?

something borrowed: CHARMS

surfing the internet when i have a spare moment is becoming a fast hobby of mine. i usually stick to certain sites but find that i am coming across more and more things that i am interested in these days.

i've decided to try something new on this blog of mine. i'm going to call it my "Something Borrowed" feature... a selection of photos, artwork, quotes and more that i have "borrowed" from somebody else in the internet world.

this week, i'm going to share my love of CHARMS. there is something so fairytale-like and whimsical about them and i can't resist their girly pull on me.

i heave, then i sigh

in the most stressful of days (like today), i am so glad I can come home to my two boys who will make me laugh silly, give me kisses and hugs to ease the worry creases on my forehead, and give me their utmost unconditional love and let me know that no matter what, i am still luckier than most.

i come home to the two boys any mommy and wife would love and be proud of.

so i leave my worries behind for now and know that no matter what, i have these two in my life.

sloppy kisses are my favourite kisses of all!

... especially when it is given whole-heartedly (complete with a runny nose) by the little man i adore!

and the hunt begins

a few weeks back, i was happily oblivious to the world of preschools and montessories until a friend mentioned how difficult it is to come across great facilities that does not have a wait list.

i decided to look up a few montessories in my neighbourhood and found only a handful that i would like to enroll the little man in.

so i placed a couple of calls on my lunch hour to obtain some information.

to my surprise, the one on top of my list has a wait list! that's correct --- my son is going to be wait-listed though preschool does not start until september of 2012!

in my panic, i have called two more montessories and decided to pay the disgusting amount of non-refundable registration fees just to ensure that he will have the space for at least one of them by the time he hits 3 years old!

i cannot believe that i have actually done this when i have at least another 2 years to go.
