Day 320 – Sleep…sleep…sleep

D

I love to sleep. I really, really love to sleep. Sometimes I miss the days when Ephia was a newborn and I could sleep around all night and all day, nothing else to do but take care of the baby. Ahhh, the good old days… Nowadays it seems that the only sleep I get are a few hours a night and sometimes, rarely, a few hours in the afternoon. And still I am sleepy. Even if I get a good night...

Day 319 – Little boys go to war while little girls have to put on make-up

D

My daughter loves airplanes. Every day she points to the sky and screams “Jet! Jet!!!” even when there’s nothing to see or point at. After almost two weeks of making us draw jets on the blackboard and on the kitchen tiles, I gave in and went into a toy store to look for a nice plane. I am used to the blue and pink barrier ever since I gave birth to her, and although I...

Day 258 – It’s all relative

D

These last couple of days have been like a wild ride in the jungle. I don’t mind the tiredness, the numbness limbs, the constant craving for sleep and so on, but I do long to write again. You know, facing the computer, getting upset because my hands can’t type as fast as I think. I want my mojo back. Today I bought the nicest and cheapest pens I ever owned. They are amazing! I thought...

Day 243 – About family

D

This has always been a very sensitive issue to many. Which one is more important: the family you are born into or the one you build for yourself from scratch? I was asked to talk about this many times before, so I will finally express my opinion on the subject. I will start by saying that I think the most important person in your life must be yourself and that in order to commit to any type of...

Day 102 – About motherhood

D

This is an awkward topic for me as I have understood ever since I have become a mother that my way is no one else’s way and that I am considered very annoying because I refuse to talk about it as well as receive any unasked for advice. But last night as I was watching my daughter dance with her father, I felt melancholic and found myself missing that little person who used to be inside of...

Day 77 – After marriage comes divorce… or was it happiness?

D

Today I had a conversation with a good friend about all the people that get divorced and naturally the topic developed to couples who argue and fight. I already spoke my thoughts about relationships here, but marriage is a whole different topic. I am the kind of person who doesn’t believe in marriage (I know, I am married) and I think marriage is a mistake created by society that should not be...

Day 53 – About the birds and the bees only without the bees

D

I thought a lot about nests today (bear with me). I suppose that when a bird finds itself out of its eggshell and into a nest, it has a lot of space around it; there is the motherly love, the fatherly love and in some cases the sibling’s love. They are all very important for the future development of the baby bird (at least that’s what I hear). It comes a time when the baby bird needs to learn...

Day 49 – Time issues

D

I had an amazing, normal, beautiful day. The man of the house was out shooting an event, so us girls were left alone and unsupervised. We had lots of fun in the garden this morning and then an interesting ride with the bus in the evening. This day passed in a blink of an eye and because of that it made me think about my time issues. I have always been fascinated with time. Either I hate it or I...
