if only the father of my sons would blog, I know this is how he’ll write too. But to him writing or blogging is just that.

Even after over four months, it’s still difficult to wrap my head around. The fact that I’ve created a tiny human being and now have to guide her through this life, make sure she has everything she ever needs, and place her in the best position to flourish – mentally, spiritually, physically, in every possible way. At times, it seems unconquerable.
I often think back on all of those articles we read, all of those classes we attended, and all of those questions we asked while Mackenzie was still brewing. All silliness. Not a single thing in this world can prepare you for becoming a parent for the first time. Nothing.
When you have a child, you lose a part of yourself. Video games now mean absolutely nothing to me. A weekend is just a two-day period when I don’t have to be equally engrossed in my career. Any romantic endeavors need to take place before we pass out at 9 or before the kid wakes up at 5 (and forget foreplay if she’s teething). The concept of ‘myself’ is no longer relevant, and while I welcome such a reality with open arms, I now see why there are so many terrible parents in the world. Having a child needs to be an act of pure selflessness.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,500 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.
Good eve! How was your New Year everyone? I hope you all had your New Years’ Resolutions in a list! Oh I have to keep this post short because I am still busy and a bit hung over with my vacation. So…
I am finally introducing to you my new blog: Ramblings of Jen . I can’t wait to hang out with you guys with the new blog I made. I haven’t been posting there lately because of one reason: I can’t officially say goodbye to this blog. But today, I decided I had to let go, move on, and go forward with it. So, see you there! More follows for my new blog!! Let’s keep in touch through there, yes? Mwuahh hugsss…
I have started a new blog and I will leave the guessing to you, my fellow readers. It’s also a WordPress site so you don’t have to worry. We can still follow each other around, and it’s not that hard to find me.
Anyways, I apologize for my absence these past few days. My mind is occupied by plans, budgets, and more plans. As you well know, December is the busiest of the holidays. There’s Christmas, and my baby Sieg’s birthday, and need to buy gifts, prepare food, clothes, and a lot more!
The sweetheart is a woman who’s positive, compassionate and gentle. She’s a genuine person who considers you in every situation. She’s always truly happy to see you and you find yourself looking forward to spending time with her. This type of woman is pretty rare, but if you can find one, you’ve got a real treasure on your hands.
I know that you know I prefer those old fashionable letter writing with pen and paper but here I am in front of a personal computer, writing you a letter. Anyways, I would like you to know that I love you and respect you in unimaginable ways that you would not have known.
There are a million things I wish I could have done and said but I just did not have the guts to open my mouth and speak. I know I should have told you straightforwardly and I should have told the truth about everything but I just could not bring myself to it.
My life is blessed because of you. I am now here where I am because of you. I am who I am partly because of you. And I thank God for your endless loving care and your over protectiveness to us all.
What I intended to tell you actually is that… Take it easy, the world isn’t rolling around with material things. And the things we do are our faults which are not supposed to blame for anyone else but us.
Again, I love you with all my heart and soul. God knows that.
With much love from your third daughter,
You’ve taught us a million things in life.
