Daughter

I did something extremely naughty today. I went to play badminton today although my wrists have not completely healed yet. I don’t know what I was thinking. Clearly, I wasn’t thinking straight. -_-

All the excitement died when I swung the racquet for the first time. That sharp pang of electrocuting pain I felt in my wrist was almost unbearable. Still, I did not stop. I decided to play it slow, play it soft instead. A couple more strokes into the warm up session, I thought to myself, Okay, seems like I can do this. I just gotta be really careful not to use too much force.

I then managed to play one game. One really slow game. And decided to stop and not play for the rest of the afternoon. I attended to Naomi, who behaved so well by the way! She quietly took a nap for an hour in her pram after I walked her around the school grounds for fifteen minutes or so.

About two hours later, after rejecting a couple of game offers, I finally gave in and decided to give it one more shot. This time, it was a slightly more serious gameplay. And boy, did I regret taking the rear court shots twice in a row. I immediately felt the sharp pain kick in again, only this time it was a lot worse. I couldn’t wait for the game to wrap up quickly and leave the court. 😭

When Mr S bathed Naomi once we got home, I quickly took a shower as well so I could put on my wrist braces ASAP!!! Mr S then prepared dinner (thanks, baby!) while I fed Naomi and rocked her to sleep (read: my wrists screaming HELPPP!!!!!!). When I came out the first time to try to eat my dinner, I realised that I couldn’t even hold my spoon without feeling the pain in my wrist!! So, I resorted to feeding myself with my left hand, lol! 😰

After dinner, just when I was about to rush to the toilet to clear my bladder, my phone rang. It was a FaceTime call from mom! I took the call quickly and guess what? I 中骂咯 (got scolded)! My sister must’ve told my mum that I hurt my wrist again by going to badminton this afternoon, hahahaha! I sheepishly confessed to my mom that yes, I injured myself again, hehehehe…

Now, this is where the point of this post comes in.

I titled this post “Daughter” because it was when my mom nagged me that I realised, my mom 心痛 me because I hurt myself. I was careless and I was stubborn. I was so ignorant. I know it hurts my mom more than it hurts me when I’m injured. Because I’m her daughter. I know because I’m a mother myself.

So when I heard mom nagging me over the phone to see a GP ASAP, I actually felt quite warm in my heart because I know how much she cares for me. 💖

Mama, sorry for keeping you worried. I’ll be guai now and take better care of myself. Promise! 😘 And thank you for loving me!! Muahs!

With love,

Your daughter.

At 5.5 Months

Hi guys!! Naomi’s fast asleep next to me at the moment. So, YAY!! Let’s do a quick post, shall we?

Our baby girl turned 5 months old two weeks ago. 😚


Time really flies when you’re having fun (or when you’re a full-time mom 😂).

She’s getting more and more interactive and playful these days. And I really, really enjoy looking after her each day! 🙂

I’m kinda amazed that we both survived the first few dreadful weeks unharmed, lol! Look at where we are today!! 😝 She’s turning so sweet these days — gently touching my face while smiling and looking into my eyes. 😍

Taken today while she was taking her noontime nap. Believe it or not but this is an iPhone pic! iPhone cameras are the BEST!

She’s gonna start on solids in two weeks’ time and I’m quite excited about that! ‘Coz right now, she’s still waking up quite often at night for feeds. I don’t know if introducing solids would keep her fuller at night and hence waking up less for feeds? I’ve been patiently waiting for the night when she will sleep through the night to come, but I haven’t been lucky so far. 😂

Meanwhile, I’m losing hair like crazy these days. 😭 It’s quite scary to see the amount of hair I “pull out” whenever I shampoo my hair.

My wrists are still hurting like hell, which really sucks. ‘Cos I have to hold her every day, do chores, cook, wash. Even shampooing my hair can hurt like a @#$*)@%*)! And I think being constantly on my phone whenever my hands are free are not helping at all. ☹️

Thank God Mr S has been very supportive and helpful thus far. I am very, very thankful! 😙

Anyway, it will be a stormy weather in Perth tomorrow. Stay safe and rugged up, guys!

Goodnight! 💜 (Goodnight because Naomi woke up while I was halfway typing this post up and had to continue later at night after my shower, heh.)
