Happy 100 Days, My Darling

100 days ago, I was born. Motherhood was born. 
100 days later, I recount my life. And a mother writes...

I gave her a gentle kiss and bade her bye until lunch hour. Lolo gently drifted to sleep just as I was about to leave for work. Trust that my heart breaks each morning I come to work.

My darling is 100 days old today and 100 days of joy at home. Since then, she has been the nucleus at home with everyone drooling over her and she the ever-demanding girl. Our day starts and ends with her, we talk non-stop about her and even if she were sleeping, we steal moments to peep at her. She is the big boss at home.

How I enjoy attending to her! Not even minding the sleepless nights (especially her wee-hour feeds @ 12.30 a.m., 4.00 a.m. and her wake-up alarm at 6:00 a.m.). I don't mind she pooping graciously when I eat, I don't mind she throwing tantrums when I wish I could nap for few more minutes. Because I so enjoy this phase of my life, it makes me feel great that I gave life. And the life is my girl Lolo.

My happiness is not always laughter. Sometimes, tears come as part of being a mother. Like when she got her first vaccine, she screamed dead and I cried together wishing I could share the pain or perhaps have taken the vaccine myself. Like when my Hubby, out of anger threw her pair of pants and I cried being so hurt. Like the night I and Hubby had a fuss and I cried because I couldn't imagine my girl going through the same marital issues (touchwood!) in future. 
Someone posted this on FB. So nicely said!

Every morning, I remind her to be strong, to be honest and live with a good heart. I tell her that she needs to stand to the adversaries in life, to stand on feet irrespective of anything, anyone and be good to one's survival. (She sure will be a strong woman for from the moment she was conceived, I fought through and I did that for my baby.) 100 days and Lolo has a dominating personality - very determined, arrogant and stubborn. 

Lolo is the very subject of my survival and she is my model. She is everything I had dreamt of, and she is my reason to live another 100 years!


  1. The joy of living and seeing someone of your own blood and flesh growing and starting to live...
    Nice post, ma'am. :)

  2. I can feel the true intensity of mothers love for her child...Lolo looks strong and way big for 100 days. I hope she will grow up to be a woman of her own substance in life....

    How I wish I were a lord above: I would have said to you this; Dear Luzee, 'your prayers are heard and will be answered too'....

    Welcome to Motherhood. As such I am a father of 3 daughters already. I enjoy every moment with them. They are true bundle of my joy. I hope you will find the same joy I found...or even more......

    Pass my happy greetings to Lolo and have a nice day..


  3. She sure is the answer to my prayers, hence her name "Lha-sen".

    She is growing exponentially :) Sign of a happy healthy baby, isn't it?

    @Langa - the joy is immense. Really.
    @PSN - I heard how good a father you are to your daughters. It melts my heart :)

  4. How cute!..
    Greetings to Lolo's 100 days.
    May she continue to grow and become a healthy daughter and good human being.

  5. My love to Lolo.
    She will always be the angel and your love for her makes it even more worth it.
    Miss you Ana.
    I really can't wait to meet Lolo.

  6. With your kind wishes, Lolo will grow up better than expected. And Yeesi, you must come home soon, she will love your attention (as it is, she is a!)
