Looking at the picture Leah tagged me, I remember how motherhood made me loveeee Mondays and weekdays. Before, when kids were little, I dreaded weekends or long holidays because Ate Mona would be off, and I had to do everything (cooking, washing dishes to baby butts to not sleeping at night and day) with 1 or 2 babies constantly hugging my legs or crying.
So Monday morning, once Ate Mona arrived, I would throw the kids at her; go to work, and doze off at the comfort of my cubicle to catch up on the sleepless weekend/holidays. To my previous employers, thank you for saving my sanity.
Being sleepless on working days were bearable because at least I would have my “break” at the office. But on weekends and especially long holidays, i’d be all alone with 2 kids strapped all over my body; i’d feel like a zombie without a daybreak.
The one time I “accidentally” took a nap on a Christmas holiday, a baby cried because he fell off from the bed. And he had a “bukol” on his head as a Worst Mother award to me.
So to all the mothers-to-be, it’s perfectly okay to NOT have a baby. And if you really really want to, FOOD IS COMFORT. @.@
Go on, indulge because you know happy mother is happy kids. 🙂
So these photos were like “Inday and dodong’s day-off.”
