I get this question quite a bit especially from ex colleagues / single friends / friends without kids. They know me during my younger days where I had all the 'me-time' in the world. Big contrast to where I am now where every evening is spent racing through dinner and then homeschooling the little one. From Math to Music to Language Arts to Science / GK, am doing it all. So it is no wonder that some friends cannot reconcile the old and current me.
Hell, I do not believe it myself too. I was after all, quite possibly one of the most non-maternal persons that I know. :p
But how can I ever have any regrets when I look at Dumpling and see moments like these?
Oh help, oh no!!!!
Wa ha ha ha... me love roe!!! Gimme roe!!!
Gasp!!! It is bigger than me!!!
And how can anyone have any regret with love notes like these?
I am blessed in so many ways with this higher order of Motherhood. Dumpling brings out both the very worst and the very best in me.
