You know its been a long time since you last blogged when you don’t remember how to log into your own blogging platform. –.–
Somewhere along the way, i kind of stopped blogging as it was too much effort to try and produce a clean, well written post that was somewhat interesting, humorous and informative. I forgot the reason i started this blog was to just write whatever thoughts popped in my head.. an avenue to vent and share the ups and downs of my life. Writing for me, not for you.
A lot has changed in my life since i started this blog… wow.. 3 years coming up! Happy 3 year thatkimchilife! Time sure does fly… somewhere along the way, i popped two kids, switched careers, started an online business but had to put it on hold to pursue a bigger dream which i can happily say that i have achieved…something I had wanted to do when I was 18 but instead had to go get a degree (which i don’t regret). Funny how life works out. I don’t believe in luck as I believe things and opportunities are placed in your life within God’s timing. I am not lucky. I am blessed and humbled and excited to see where this new opportunity will take us.
As both kids get older, i find that it is getting easier to do more activities with them. Last week, we decided to take them for a bike ride around the seawall. At that time, I thought it was such a brilliant idea! It was a nice sunny day, we live in a beautiful city, and the kids were old enough to sit on bike chairs. Expectation: We each take one kid and enjoy the beautiful water view with the kids as the wind caresses our faces pedaling down the seawall. Reality: We forgot how physically demanding it was especially with the weight of the kids on each bike. I don’t know about my hubby but I had toddler Z strapped in the front of my bike and all i could think of was trying not fall with her. Forget enjoying the view! My eyes were glued to the road, sweat dripping down my back with my hands grasping firmly on the steering wheel thinking are we almost back to the bike shop?? At one point, I lost control and Z and I plunged down the hill before I stepped on the brakes and saved my child but not myself. I was a bit scraped up and bruised but Z was ok and thats all that mattered. SO, the brilliant idea i had of having a nice family bike ride along the seawall was an epic fail. Perhaps it was because i haven’t ridden a bike in years or having Z strapped in the front threw off the balance but despite it being an unpleasant experience for me, the hubby and the kids seemed to have enjoyed it so i think it was actually a success! My family comes first before my own happiness. Because when they are happy, I am happy. I guess thats what being a mom is…
