I like the show Powerpuff Girls on Cartoon Network. And I especially like the intro that the girls were made out of sugar and spice and everything nice. They were just made powerful by Chemical X. I think that is so cute. The plot is so simple actually but it is so heartwarming and the stories are interesting to the kids (and also to this adult).
I, too, have two girls and I think that they are made of sugar and spice. They are very special and tender and very adorable. Eventually, the older one will be a teenager so I just relish this time that she may still be considered a child.
But I am also very much aware that someday I will eventually let her go little my little. It may be sooner than I think but she will go into high school and we will be thinking about crushes and prom dresses and then graduation. Time flies so fast. Even my little girl is now a toddler. Sigh…I must be getting really old and emotional. Haha It is just that I still have not gotten over the wonder and awe of pregnancy and giving birth and now my kids are growing up so fast that I can hardly catch up with them. Like any parent, I need parenting lessons to cope with … well, parenting, obviously. Haha…
I am happy for my children, but I do miss their being children.
My friend, who gave birth a few months earlier than I did, really wanted to breastfeed her baby. She is also a stay at home mom and would want to give her all to her baby. After all, this is her first baby and she really prayed hard to have a child. She researched and asked around how to increase breast milk production, but no matter what she did and took, she did not have a lot of milk. And to think that she had big ample breasts that you would think she had a lot of supply!
She was sooo frustrated that she cried many times over it until she finally accepted the fact that she was not probably cut out to produce milk. On the fourth month of her baby, she took some medication and was advised to stop breastfeeding. When she came back, she no longer had milk. She was really disappointed but she could not do anything except to accept it. Too bad. Here is a mother who wanted to breastfeed her baby but couldn’t but there are those who can but wouldn’t. Tsk tsk. Sometimes, life can be unfair.
Every woman wants to feel sexy, if not for the other half, but for one’s self. That is exactly how I want to feel. After I have given birth to my third child, my figure has not rebounded. Instead, I packed on pounds and bulges in places that are rather unsightly. Nevertheless, there are times that I want to feel sexy.
One of the ways that I express myself if I want to feel sexy just to feel good is to wear special lingerie to bed. Honestly, I cannot imagine myself anymore doing this when my husband is around. I get so stressed with his ways that it is very difficult to feel sexy when he is around. But when I am alone, to bring my spirits up, I am thinking of wearing lingerie. It can be weird but even sleeping in one makes me feel good. Weird, huh? Well, what can I say? To each his own and whatever tickles you, right?
