random thoughts of a teenage mom of 2

- migi and meg are just 1 year apart. both babies are unexpected and unplanned. sounds like responsible parenthood?! as such, this sometimes makes me feel irresponsible. active contributor to philippine's population problem. =)

- i wasn't much excited with the 2nd baby. i did not count every day of her living, watch and record milestones, took pictures of her like crazy. but it doesn't mean i love meg less. i do have a favorite child - whoever is the lesser of evil of the day. =)

- both are c-section. which is one of the factors that i wasn't much excited with the 2nd baby. just the thought of being injected with anesthesia makes me cringe - it's the last 'pain' you'll have before being sliced. eeewwww

- my ob-gyn wanted to 'ligate' me after the 2nd baby because my 'mattress' (sp?) is already tissue-thin. but my husband said NO. gggrrrrr... i was hoping he would say no though. we need to breed, we're both 'only child.' =)

- being both 'only child,' our kids do not have first-degree cousins, and first-degree (?) aunts and uncles. kinda sad. =(

- after having 2 kids, i still don't know what are the different immunization shots and when should they be given. a neighborhood pedia pointed out this 'weakness' of mine to me. she was kind of shock that i'm not familiar with the shots given to my kids. reminds me, both of them have shots for this month. i think for meg is chickenpox. for migi, i dunno must be some booster shot. bad mother?!?

- monthy check-up of the babies is a family's day out. jollibee or mcdonalds for lunch and some timezone or bibo after. yes, we're lazy-assed parents.

- we've never been to some fine dining stuff since having kids. because nicey2x restaurants don't have 'playground' and highchairs. =)

- i'm a gross mother. i just let my babies put any thing inside their mouth just to have some peace at home. sadly gross but true.

- i'm also a lazy mother. i don't put effort in teaching the right things to my kids especially when it requires some fistfight before they yield to what is right. =(

- before having kids, i swear that i'll be a hands-on mother as much as possible no help. now i'm 100% yaya dependent. i'm just grateful to God to be blessed with a very wonderful help, actually we have now 2. =)

- up to now, mark thinks we're still not ready to become parents. like duh?! and sometimes, i kinda realize and agree with him. So I pray hard to God that they'll grow up normal.

- i still have not shed off my pregnancy fats and actually i'm adding more. yes, i still look like 9-month pregnant woman. no, make it 9-month overdue pregnant whale. =(
