To Marry or Not To Marry

When my boyfriend who’s now my hubby finally asked me to marry him, I was happy but at the same time anxious if I am making the right decision. I love him dearly but I was anxious because we are not of the same nationality, therefore we have lots of differences – in culture, language, food, etc. He told me those are not big issues, that if we really love each other then we’ll both adjust and that our love will bind us together for life.

I decided to marry him and I am glad I did because I couldn’t imagine my life now if I didn’t. Maybe I married someone else or maybe I’m not yet married till now.  I don’t know what else could have happened. All I know is that since I married him, I became not only a happy wife but a joyful mommy as well. Yes, we do have some misunderstanding sometimes but we know that at the end of the day, our love is strong enough for us to stick with each other no matter what.

Sleepless

When I was pregnant, everybody told me that I should sleep as much as I can before I give birth. And I did. I thought I was well prepared but I was wrong.

I even mentioned numerous times on my previous posts that I will not mind the upcoming sleepless nights. And I didn’t – for the first week! Simply because I was overwhelmed with joy. I hardly noticed the time because I was like walking in the clouds.

But on the second week, reality has bitten me. I was still overwhelmed with joy. My love for Abby is still the same but I was physically tired. And I became cranky. Lack of sleep makes anyone cranky even a very loving mother like me.

Of course, I didn’t take it out on Abby. I tried talking to her though. I begged her to stop crying when she couldn’t settle herself to sleep. And as I had foreseen before,  I cried…silently. I missed my own mother. But she is so far. Thankfully, I have a very supportive husband and he sure knows how to talk me out of my weariness.

Now, Abby is almost three weeks old and still I am overwhelmed with joy. But I am not so overwhelmed with tiredness and sleeplessness anymore. I have learned to sleep whenever she is asleep (mostly during night-time but during daytime – I keep myself busy with household chores).

Having Abby is the best thing that happened in my life and I will never trade her for anything in this world.
