Mothering is a continuous learning process - part 2

Tomorrow becomes almost 2 months later... And since I can't sleep at this hour, might as well continue typing down what I've drafted before.

But anyway, the point of Part 1 is that after a few months of being a mother, reading up all sorts of texts on illnesses, parenting, etc, you'd think you have the child-caring down to pat. And then bam! You learn something new again. Something to think about, something to ponder on. Something to take note of for the next bairn and while taking care of the current one.

Some old-wives-tales have truth in them, others are mere guidance. It seems that it's not all scientific hullabaloos these days. Instead, we're going back to our roots, to basic, to nature. And well, I actually kind of like it. So now, I'm going to begin reading up on Homeopathy (and yes! we've changed pediatricians. hee) by buying a book about it. Hopefully, it arrives next week, while I'm still on leave.

Jack-Jack's first birthday

Exactly one year ago at 3:30am, I woke up with painful cramps in the stomach not knowing but feeling sure that on that day, I'd be giving birth. Today, that miracle called Joaquin Gregory celebrates his first year.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK-JACK! Mommy and Daddy loves you very much.
And oh! I'm also celebrating one year of breastfeeding.
