watching this video during my 30-minute lunch break melted my heart. but the way she ran to me and virtually tackled my knees to give me a hug later when i got home melted my heart even more. that was happiness right there. pure, unadulterated happiness.
motherhood is truly a wonderful experience.
sometimes i wish we were so rich that i didn’t have to leave home to go to work. but then again, even if i win the lottery, i’d probably still work even if it’s part-time. in a sense, i’m lucky to have found the kind of job that i actually enjoy, with the perks of going home early to spend the rest of the afternoon with my baby and not have to go on night shifts which would’ve truly sucked because then i’d miss out on her the whole day on account of me making up for lost sleep. and trust me, i love sleeping. you can put me anywhere and i’d still end up dozing off. i’m very good at it.
but, you know, life’s tough and you gotta hustle. for now, i’m just happy with the work-life balance afforded to me by my job. i may not be drowning in money but at least i’m not drowning in stress either.
it’s all good. 🙂
