More talks

I have seen too many women that are not married or childless women say it like its so easy being a mom.

1. ” When my child sleep, I would sleep too.” Wrong! You can’t sleep when your child sleeps because you have dishes to do, the laundry is piling up, the kitchen and the living room floor is a mess.

2. “Find a job.” As much as it would help me financially, I can’t handle the stress and the fatigue. I do not have my mom or maid to help me with the chores and children when I get home. If you do, yeah u can work.

3. “Why don’t you have more kids.” Seriously, I don’t mind but referring to point no. 2, we may consider your donations.

4. “Ma’am could you please fold your pram.” Like could you please help me with my children then.. Hold their hands, carry them, and oh, the shopping bags too please.

There is so much these people don’t know. I will just have to wait till they get their own and see them suffer and I will be laughing from the inside.

Physical

Once you become a mom the 1st thing you noticed are the stretchmarks, the darken pigmentations, which makes all moms insecure about revealing skin and we cover it all up. Some may lose the pregnancy weight some may not.

We dont dress up often as we need to bend down, stand up, ran around, we get infant vomit and saliva on our clothes. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets become objects for the young ones to tuck and pull onto. Say no to heels cause we have to carry around a 10kg baby in our hands, the worst thing is to fall. (But just imagine carrying a sack of rice while wearing heels, its torture.) Make up, don’t talk about make up because sometimes we don’t even have the time to get a proper shower. One minute you are in the bathroom and the next thing you hear is your infant crying… We all try to dress up and put in effort on special occasions, we all try to dress up nice for our husbands. We do want to feel beautiful.

I want to start blogging again but I am afraid it is just a passing phrase.

I want to blog about my marriage and how life changes after having kids.

But I don’t know where to begin.

The sense of just trying stuff and allowing each other to fail and be excited about things and that was liberating for her. It feels exciting to see her grow, both of us grow and change together…but you know that’s also the hard part growing apart and growing apart or changing without scaring the other person…

It’s like I’m reading a book… and it’s a book I deeply love. But I’m reading it slowly now. So the words are really far apart and the spaces between the words are almost infinite. I can still feel you… and the words of our story… but it’s in this endless space between the words that I’m finding myself now. It’s a place that’s not of the physical world. It’s where everything else is that I didn’t even know existed. I love you so much. But this is where I am now. And this who I am now. And I need you to let me go. As much as I want to, I can’t live your book any more.

Sometimes I think I’ve felt everything I’m ever going to feel. And from here on out I’m not going to feel anything new. Just lesser versions of what I’ve already felt.
