As some of you guys may know, I took a year off working to spend some time with the kids. I have been toying with this idea with Aidan back then and finally decided to do so after after my maternity period with Davina.

There were many variables that played to my decision making, some being the lack of caregivers but the majority being the unbearable mom guilt. I had very nice colleagues back then with one of the best bosses ever however I was not motivated by the work. My role back then was evolving and it wasn't part of my expertise nor what I wanted to do in the long run. So after more than 4 years in the big agency, I decided to take a break.

That being said, I was kinda still "working". I was still hustling with my social media activities, going for events, writing ads etc. I also took up a freelance business development job for a friend which kinda cemented my interest in sales.

But overall, I was a SAHM 6 days a week. I will be sharing my experience transitioning from a FTWM to a SAHM.

As my personal motto for 2020, I intend to share more personal musings for the year. So be prepared for more of such posts!

I've been involved in quite a number of shoots and while I have been posting on Instagram, I have yet to share on my blog. For 2020, my mission is to update my blog regularly. I also aim to share more personal musings and separately, more photos of the fam.

Also easier for me to look back at these pics HAHAH.

Back in 2017 when Aidan was an only child (LOLS), I did an interview with Uniqlo. They organised a mini casual shoot for us to wear their apparels (which we returned hor! Not sponsored haha)

It was a simple casual shoot and from there, I really really enjoyed such shoots. Previously I had only done indoor studio shoots. After this shoot, I started to do more outdoor shoots after Davina was born.

Looking at the timestamp, it was in June 2017. Aidan was about 15 months old at that time. He looks so different now!


Thank you Duo Studio and Uniqlo for organising the shoot. Love that it was shot in my hood <3

I used to think that there is no way I could love another. How do I divide the love if I have another kid? Will I be able to love my second child as much as I love my first?

But I learnt that your heart can love more than one. You will have the capacity to divide your feelings. As an only child, I always thought one child is enough. Growing up was great for me, I did my own thing. I think as an only child, I grew up being both an extrovert and yet an introvert. I learnt to socialise with others as there wasn’t anyone else to play with at home (except for my cats but we all know we are slaves to them) and yet I was a loner at times, I prefer my peace and quiet. Which kinda makes me an introvert extrovert? Oxymoron much?? And I’m rambling now.

Honestly as an only child, the burden is all mind to bear. When parents fall sick, expenses are all on me. I know having kids isn't a guarantee, infact Skai and I talked about being self reliant and not having to rely on our kids. But I guess giving Aidan a sibling means if anything happens, he has someone else to talk to. I don't know if I'm being morbid but at least they have each other if anything *touch wood* happens to us.

I guess I'm lucky that I'm kinda somewhat like an extrovert and that I have friends and Skai to talk to and work things out together.

I guess my main point is that, it does get lonely at times. Especially when you are older. Which was why I wanted a second child. Not a guarantee that they could be their best companions but I do hope that they will be. I love seeing them play together and fight. Davina seems to worship Aidan currently while Aidan loves playing with her despite his annoyance that she destroys everything.

So this is my ramblings to why I wanted more than one kid. How about yourself? Do you have more than one kid? If yes, why? If no, why? Would love to hear more thoughts!
