I will miss this moment

          Earlier this evening, Rain was getting cranky because she couldn't get her sleep. Usually she sleeps at 8PM but after she got sick, her body clock changed. She now sleeps super early. I tried everything to help her sleep. Milk, breastfeeding, singing while rocking her, but nothing worked. She was tossing and turning in bed. Poor Rain, she looked so tired but for some reason she still couldn't sleep.

... until she climbed on my chest, lay there for a few minutes and then before I knew it she was in dream land :-)



          I was thinking of slowly placing her beside me on the bed because I wanted to get up and do some household stuff while she was asleep. But then I paused. I'm sure a few years from now (which I'm pretty sure will arrive before I know it) when Rain grows into a kid ... eventually into early teen... when she can't be bothered with her extracurricular activities or checking her social sites (whatever replaces Facebook or Twitter ) or whatever teens do in her time... when she is too big to sleep on my chest or even cuddle with me in bed... I know I will look back to this moment and regret putting her down on the bed so quickly.
So I let her sleep on top of me until she started squirming and seemed to want to lay on her back.

          These are the simple peaceful moments I don't want to let pass by :-)


It hurts to know that I will miss this moment in the future. If only I can freeze time :')

  15. Awww! Sweet! Yes, they do grow up so fast! I have my own sweet not-so-little girl (7 years old agad!) I find myself watching her sleep before dozing off. One thing is for sure, once your baby-always your baby.

  19. Aaawww...I can feel you Rina. I have a 14-month old son and I embrace & kiss him as much as I can. Kids grow up so fast. When they've grown, we can't kiss and hug them as much as we like anymore. Happy birthday Rina. God bless!

  21. This is so true...My daughter's now four and I already miss her being all so dependent on mommy. :( I remember when her every day meant having to cuddle with me --- now she craves the company of other little girls and other adults (like her teachers at summer school, lolo, lola, tito, tita, etc. etc). They really do grow up sooo fast...

    Heniways, happy birthday mommy Rina! :) Cheers to your awesome journey as a new mom, and tama nga ang mga sabi-sabi, ang mga pinanganak ng May - sweet at magaganda! (my daughter is a May baby too. :D)

  26. I also just had this kind of "mommy moment" with my daughter. Well not exactly the same but you know those heartwarming moments with your child. She awoken from her sleep and didn't see me beside her. She stood up and walked towards me even though she was staggering. So I laid beside her, placed her around my arms. Before I knew it she was back to sleep, with a smile on her face, Priceless.

    I super feel the same. At times, I even tell her to grow slowly cause every time I look at her she seems bigger than how she looked a day before.

    You're right Ms. Rina, being a mother makes a person soft.

  37. I am amazed at how well you have managed your own, your husband's and your children's lives all at once. You should be given an award! For the time being, accept this recognition from me and let's raise a toast on the Birthday for being the most special person in our lives. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday.

  41. Same sentiments here, Rina! That's why I try to be "more present" whenever I don't have work and I stay home with my son. Time sure flies by and like you said, before you know it, our young ones have turned into adults.

    May you have a wonderful birthday with your super cute Rain and your equally cute husband! GOd bless you!

  42. Ganyan din yung daughter ko when she's still a baby.. she loves sleeping on my chest (kahit mabuto! haha!) But now (she's 2 na), kahit minsan nilalagay ko sya sa chest ko.. ayaw na nya :( pero may mga times na ganon pa rin pero saglit lang siya nagstay sken, and mabigat na rin! hehehe!

    Happy Birthday!
