Sophia, My Early Valentine

We have come a long way since, and to be honest, I am both excited and apprehensive to set you free. Until then, please be Mummy’s Valentine.

Sophia Is Embarrassed Of Her Mom

Please do not grow up too fast. Like I always tell you (like most parent), you will always be my baby. And I will always be your cool old woman.

Sophia Misses Traveling

The last time we have been out of the country was two years ago, when Sophia turned six. I hope I can show my daughter more of the world.

Sophia’s Mother’s Wish For Her

Yes, you will make your own way and make mistakes and get hurt in the process, I cannot shield you from any of those, nor do I desire to (I say this now, but the challenges will make you stronger and the pain will make you appreciate the good times more). My fervent wish for you (and myself) is that throughout your journey (and the rest of mine), you have someone (aside from your mother) who has always got your back (I do, but I am afraid I will not be around forever, at least 50 more years, eh?).

Sophia Knows Delayed Gratification

Every time my daughter wants something, she would ask if she could have it for her birthday, or for Christmas. I suppose I should be thankful there are only 2 special days in a year for her (and the next one is 11 months away whew!) Lol. Kidding aside, I am so glad I have not spoiled my daughter.

Sophia And I Hangs Out

With my personality, I sure will try to be my daughter’s best friend. After all, I am a cool mom! But where do I draw the line between the two roles?

Sophia Appreciates

Having a grateful heart and being vocal about it also makes the other person wants to give you more. It sure does make it a lot easier for me when you ask for a bit more expensive stuff, for I know you appreciate a candy that costs ten cents the same way as a 300 dollars Switch.

Sophia See Sophia Do 3 (Gratitude)

Note to self: Sarah, whenever you have doubts, feel and acknowledge them. Somehow your daughter feels them, too. And it is ok. What is important is you try to find answers. And do not forget to have a grateful heart!

Sophia Understands

To my ex-boyfriend, whom I am forever indebted for the best gift I have ever been fortunate to receive, I wish you a happy birthday, health and peace. Please do not wait until it is too late to develop a relationship with your wonderful soon eight year old daughter.

Sophia See Sophia Do

I was again reminded that I should be careful about what I say and do as my little one can see and feel everything. For those with kids, maybe try to ask your child this question.

Sophia Skips School

It’s funny how she got upset because she is not well enough to attend school. I hope this attitude continue until she’s done with university. I remember when I was in kindergarten, I spent an entire afternoon (the whole class) in the playground with a classmate.
