relaxing saturday

It's 1500 hrs here in sunny Malta and my two boys
- big & small are happily asleep and mommy is enjoying some time alone in
quiet peace. Our little puppy rolled over twice this week....the first time I
thought it was just a fluke but when it happened again I rethought that! I can't
believe how Greg is developing so quickly. I also read about stranger anxiety
(which usually happens from 6 months on) and it seems he is already starting to
have it this young man of mine. It's a bit worrying since I soon have to go back
to work and yesterday not even with David would he calm down. But it's a phase
they have to go through and I can only make it as clear as possible to him that
I will always be near and that I will come back...




This morning we gave him his 2nd injection, he
was smiling happily on the nurse's couch and continued smiling while she
injected him but soon after she drew out the needle he started squeeling. it
didn't last long thank God and seems ok so far. However, since last time round
by 3 pm he was in a fit of bad crying due to pain in his leg and wouldn't rest
or anything for a long time, this time we gave him some medicine straight away.
I don't like giving him any med really and prefer natural alternatives but I'd
rather do so in such situations then have him in pain.




When I think of these 3 and a half months just
passed it all seems incredible. I can't quite imagine my life now without
Gregory, my life goes to second place and I am quite happy to go according to my
sons' wishes and moods. Since we never were party people, our life didn't
change soo much in the social scene but you do feel different when meeting your
friends. For some strange reason which I still can't phathom I always end
up talking about my kid which I guess its a bit boring for my friends who are
not with children. What's new in the clothes scene or which holiday
destination is next became of no importance at all. Now considering I am a
travel mania, I feel kinda nostalgic that I probably won't travel for a while
yet, but at the same time this is no big deal.


Most of all I marvel at how this little bundle
that came in my arms, has changed me personally. I have finally started
doing yoga with more presence and I feel more strong and more healthy. I
have grown but oh sooooo much patient and I think more flexible in my attitude
(though this David has to confirm I suppose). I feel like I have found
more ofthe real me who used to hide so much. I am less shy and more open
to people and generally feel more happy and at peace.

It's difficult to explain it really but in short
I am more whole!


I wish all the mothers that will read this a
great mothers day full of wonders and new surprises.
