Happy Belated Father’s Day…

See i’m once again late with my greetings to all Daddys!
Walter is away in US so we sent kisses over the Messenger – we will also be mailing him a card tomorrow – shhhh…. don’t tell him – actually i don’t think he’ll even log on here to read our blog – hahhaha 😉 so funny when he was the one who started this blog.
Here’s a little poem for all Fathers out there:

The things you taught me I will always know.
How could I not? The roots have sunk so deep:
All lessons of the heart that I will keep
No matter who I am or where I go.
Kids learn from what their parents are, and so
You are my book of life, the thoughts I reap;
Only in your arms I quiet sleep;
Under my words your voice sings soft and slow.
From you I learned the rules of right and wrong
Against which I at times had to rebel,
Though with regret I carry with me still.
How lucky I am to have been loved so well,
Even as I pushed against your will,
Relying on a father fair and strong.

Baby-Free Day

From Friday 7.45pm till Saturday 6.45pm, we (Mummy & Daddy) were baby-free! That’s almost 24hrs without baby. It was a trial-run for next weekend when we will leave him for 2x nites!!

Tobias had lots of fun – he had lots of little friends to play with – didn’t even asked for us once!! We … or at least me had wanted to call & check after about 15hrs – but Walter said,” NO!” so we didn’t call & i think it went well – it was good for us & good for Tobi! It felt funny thot – at least for me as i have never left Tobi for more than 10hrs before this. i was buying lunch on Saturday & thot what can i get which he (tobi) can eat, then had to stop myself & tell myself he’s not with us today!

My muscles are painful from the half day of trying to remember how to ski – i went on skis for the 1st time 3 years ago & have not done any skiing since then so it was hard work but i’m happy to report that skiing is much like riding a bike in that you don’t forget the basics. Of cos i was not the most graceful person on the slopes but at least i got down the slope.

So it looks like we’ll be all set for the coming weekend – we go for the company ski weekend & Tobi goes to the Bachmanns & have lots of fun playing with their little gals.

In the meantime, this coming week (at least the next 4days) will have to be hubby-free as Walter is away for work. Sigh!

Being a Mummy … changes that happen …

i, Mummy, had alone time today – a few hours alone without hubby & son. i started needing this after more than a year of being mummy 24/7. i never really needed this alone time before – that’s Change No. 1.
Change No. 2. – i spent time today shopping alone & guess what i was shopping for … baby stuff!!
Change No. 3. – a warm & fuzzy feeling comes over me when i see my hubby carrying my sleeping son, walking towards me. A feeling that never existed before.

We, Mummy & Daddy, have always tried to make a point that having baby will not vastly change our lifestyles but these changes do happen, not all are desirable, but definitely they are not completely bad – esp. the ones mentioned above. The changes remind one that, “Hey, things now have to include a little person.” & Change No. 3. i think is one of the best parts.

To all tired mums & mums-to-be … think warm fuzzy thots … all is a phase, it will pass … they are angels, at times 😉 … it will all be worth it (esp. when they have babies of their own – my mum said this to me countless times & i finally understand!)
