Mommy Diaries: Joaquim's 8th
Hello, I am back! I have been away from the blogging world for almost 5 months! In those months, I was contemplating on whether to continue blogging or not. It does take a considerable amount of time to pick and edit the pictures to post and of course to write something sensible or at least blog-worthy.
With my multiple roles in life, I found it hard to squeeze in some blogging time. And it didn't help that Cebu experienced two major life-threatening, life-changing calamities during the last quarter of 2013. While I am thankful that all of my family members and friends survived those calamities, there were a few situations that we had to adjust to, especially in my line of work. A portion of our office building collapsed so we were temporarily displaced elsewhere. Plus court hearing and court processes are not yet back to normal as the Palace of Justice was declared not safe for occupation.
Aside from those calamities, what really kept me away were the overwhelming tasks that I had to do as a wife, a mother of one (and another one!), a lawyer, a household manager and budget officer. Haha. After almost a year of living independently from my parents and having our own space, I could say, it is no joke to manage a household! As in! Doing the groceries, budgeting the expenses, paying the bills, taking care of a baby and a husband and being pregnant at that can be very, very tiring. But, and this is a big BUT, tiring as it can be, I am at my happiest.
Our son now is already 14 months old. Looking at his pictures during the monthly birthday celebrations we did for him, I was inspired to go back to blogging, not only for me but for our son in the future. I want to chronicle his growth and development and more importantly, I want him to know, through this blog, how much we love him and how happy we are to have in our lives.
