On parenting tweens and newborn babies

While I was writing this article for WMN.ph, I suddenly missed having a small baby! My three kids are, well, still kids, but far from the little babies they once were.

My youngest little boy is not so little anymore. Looking at this photo, where he looked so angelic and cuddly, I find myself wishing I could still have one more. (Wishful thinking!)

I now have a nearly-teener, and I’m beginning to feel the heartaches that come with parenting one. When she was a little girl, she never tired of my kisses and hugs… *sniff, sniff*

Writing this article made me realize how fast my kids have grown. Sometimes parents can get too caught up with the complexities of life that we fail to take note of the little things. Those little things can’t be brought back when their time have passed – the small hands that cup your face to give you a wet kiss, the hearty giggles, the house that can never be tidy for one full hour. One day these shall pass, I hope not too soon.

I know, I know, this is too much drama. I’m PMS-ing… and just had a squabble with my tween. πŸ™ Where did my baby go?


On a side note, I hope my daughter will not have to struggle with acne and need anΒ acne scar cream.

    This makes me really sad coz I feel that my baby is growing too fast and that time just passes me by so swiftly yet I am not there every moment for her. Haay, parenthood no? It has its unexplainable heartaches. πŸ™
