I’ve always wondered if what I see, do or say are correct or even normal. I’ve been aware of not being normal (and they are my own words, and how I felt in this world.) for my whole life. I always knew I was different; I never knew how or why until the diagnoses ofContinue reading “Seeing the world through his eyes”

A snippet from Thursday
27 January….. I do get scared, maybe too much. It’s not the kind of scared you are for a spider or something that makes your flight or fight instincts kick in. No, for me, it’s a scared or a fear that’s constant. Thoughts like, am I doing it alright, is this how it needs toContinue reading “A snippet from Thursday”
A snippet from Wednesday
26 January. Being a mom is already hard work; having the flu or, in my case, Corona doesn’t make it easier. And with my husband, who felt pretty sick the first few days, needing some extra love too. It wasn’t easy, especially when you wanted to give in and lay in bed all day. DoingContinue reading “A snippet from Wednesday”
Not being around….
I had planned on writing every Wednesday and Sunday, doing a short day snippet every evening. And as you can see, nothing has been written in a few days. There is one big reason for it and a few tiny ones. The big reason is my husband tested positive for covid, and I’m currently waitingContinue reading “Not being around….”
A snippet from Sunday
16 January… I had planned on writing a lengthy post on Sundays and Wednesdays. But as you might figure out. This one will be short. I’m just too tired to write a lot, so I’m moving the topic I wanted to put down to tomorrow. It’s been a good Sunday, but a long one. AJContinue reading “A snippet from Sunday”
A snippet from Saturday
Saturday the 15th. They never told me that it would go through bone and marrow when your child would cry, that it would feel like being hit by a hundred hammers with spikes on them.I can handle crying when I know why. He hit his head or doesn’t want to sleep, but he’s tired. ButContinue reading “A snippet from Saturday”
A snippet from Friday.
My AJ free day. We (the husband and I) had discussed a month or two back how to give me a relaxing day or my not-mom-day. So I can recharge and get some energy back. This all helps me to take better care of AJ. At first, I felt guilty, now I feel relaxed andContinue reading “A snippet from Friday.”
When did I feel it all?
When did I feel like a mom? When did I feel the love? You hear people saying they are mothers or fathers when their baby arrives. That there’s this instant switch that flipped in their minds and “poof.” They are mom and dad. For me, it wasn’t like that. Of course, I was a motherContinue reading “When did I feel it all?”
Tiny Road Trip Time.
Going away used to be like this. “hey, let’s go somewhere.” You packed some things, brought with you whatever it was that you needed where you went, and you left. That was it. Now, when we want to leave, it goes more like this. “Do you grab that?” “Can you bring me those?” “Did you think about this?” Two peopleContinue reading “Tiny Road Trip Time.”
A whole new world.
And no this isn’t the song from Disney. It’s my life… There are a few things new in my world and one thing that is new for everyone in their life. Such as covid, which will be mentioned here and there. First of all, who had ever thought that something like this could or everContinue reading “A whole new world.”
