To More Poutines and Caramel Sundaes 

Edward,  You probably think this letter for our anniversary is overrated. It is true. I have written too much about you on this blog that I even have a category named “Edwards” just to store all posts about you. But I also admit that I have neglected you since Elon was born. As I write […]

A Year In Toronto

    Happy one year in Toronto, Edward!   When you came to Toronto for good to be with me, I did not think how you would like it. I was too selfish to think about that. I only thought: I want you here whether you would come to like it or not. But seeing […]

Rainbows and Butterflies (and a little rain)

It will be almost 60 days since Elon was born. Since day one, I have been with him 24/7. During the times that I am awake from when he was born, I looked at him, kissed him, held him, and cared for him. The rest of the times, that I am asleep, I dreamt about […]

Three Hours is a Blessing

You know what my prayer is every night? For Elon to extend his sleep. Elon is a demanding baby. He is not a colic baby but he needs to get what he wants when he asks for it. Pronto. In a way, like me. Yes totally like me so I understand my son. But sometimes […]

He slept through until dinner and slept again when he reached home.Elon was quite the giver making sure the people around him […]

A Rewind: While Pregnant

I am my mother

The only thing closest to motherhood I thought I would have experienced before I was close to 30 years old would be through my mom’s. I never thought that at 26, I would actually have firsthand experience.    A month into this motherhood fiasco, I find myself surviving with broken sleep. I am crazy on keeping […]

You know it’s the good because of the bad 

Elon is going to be a month old in 2 days. While taking care of him, I have learned that there were the days I had to let go, move on, and learn from. There were the not so good days but still okay. And there were the good days which I appreciate more because […]
