... lots of merriment, squels and laughter
... lots of laundry of cute little clothes
... being puked at, being peed at, being pooed at
... ample opportunities to look at another person's buttocks without their permission
... nagging, yelling and "rotan time" is part and parcel
... putting up a brave smile eventhough i'm scared to my wits!
... tormented by the pain that my kid had to go through
... having "kiddos' unfinished food" as a fixed item on my menu
... stuffing rubbish into my pocket so that my kiddos will not see me littering
... going ahead with a decision, knowing that it's not the wisest, but it's the best for baby
... staring at my sleeping kiddos and thinking how blessed i am
... getting stares from the nasi lemak uncle and many other "hamsap" people, only to find out later that my littliest one has stuck 2 upside-down dino stickers on my left bosom *smiles*
... thinking that the best smelling people in the world are my sticky and sweaty kiddos
... feeling on top of the world when my kiddos declared i'm their favourite person in the whole wide world :-)
and that sums up what motherhood means to me. ask me 10 years later, and you may get this in the list - "confusion" - me, not them! :-D.
