My mum Whatsapp-ed me this picture of her taken with the girls about 5 years ago. Alycia was 8, Drama Queen was 6 and Cass was 3. Love this picture so much of all the people whom I love the most in the whole wide world :)
This picture is now set as lock screen picture on my desktop computer. If only I could teleport myself back in time to relive just one of those days. I miss the girls when they were at that age where they were still cute as little puppies and ever so cuddly, where they have not learned to retaliate and answer back rudely.
Well perhaps I'll be saying the same thing 5 years down the road when the girls turn 18, 16 and 13 (OMG, all teenagers by then!). I would probably be missing them at their age now. Sometimes I wish they were all grown up and working so that I have no more stress of caring for young and growing kids and on some days I wish they were little helpless babies again. Ask any parents and you will get the same sentiments of stress - financial, emotional and physical stress of raising kids.
This is the ebb and flow of life - there are highs and lows. There is bitter and sweet, gloomy and sunshine days and it's all part of the package of life. If it were peaches, sunshine and roses all the time, I guess we’d probably get bored or even worried of life being too perfect. Agree?
