And so the first week of 2017 has finally come to the end. Phew! Welcome weekend!
Little Foot is slowly adjusting to the idea of lunch times without Mummy, even though she probably can’t quite understand why… and the idea that I may not be there to pick her up from school in the evenings.
Most challenging for Mummy is actually the idea that home is not quite so near anymore…
Having to join the majority of working Singaporeans in the daunting daily commute to and from work (and which everyone b***hes about a lot) after having blissfully escaped the madness since 2011 is extra painful. Yes, it is a major perk to one’s sanity when you live close to work.
And 5 years down the road, one does wonder where all these humans (and cars on the roads) come from! It never used to be THAT packed and congested!
I’m thankfully that Papa Long is able to do the afterschool pick ups. So there is some stability to our arrangements for Little Foot.
It is still early times to say if it will all work out, but for now, one step at a time, have a little faith. I need to gain back the confidence I used to have.
And when I’m feeling low or lost, to focus on what I’m doing all these for.
Even if I miss her acutely.
