So, with hubby going off for a week and a half in less than one weeks time, I am wondering if I should stay in KL or take off and go back to my parents place. If I go back, this would be the 2nd time I would be alone with my son in Ipoh for longer than a weekend....after my confinement.
Thinking about it brought me back to one moment during my confinement.
My parents helped me during the confinement. Mum cooked and dad helped run errands and cleaned the house. And of couse both of them took turns taking care of Christopher from 9-11 pm before they brought him up to my room.
But there was one morning about 2 weeks into my confinement, I was really acting up. I was expressionless and really tired and very listless. Dad decided that maybe tonight they wouldn't bring Christopher to my room but let him sleep in their room instead.
I woke up at about 5 am and looked over expecting to see my kid. And to my shock, he was not there!!! I glanced at the time and saw that it was already morning.
Oh, the emotion!!! I got angry actually. I felt (strange as it is) like my son has been kidnapped!!
Hormonal imbalance + lack of proper sleep!
So anyway, I knocked on their door since I saw a light was on.
My parents literally thrust my son back to me! hahaha....
He was still a little mite then and thus was waking up every 3 hours. And my parents being a bit hurry-flurry got all 'stressed' out preparing his milk!
And the older you get, the harder it is to fall back to sleep!
My parents also have their share of idiosynchrocies. But then again, so do all of us. And some of my idiosynchrocies don't work well with theirs!
But on the other side of the fence, a less stressed out mum makes a better mum, right?
So, maybe it will be back to Ipoh for me!
