Time out for mama

Motherhood is tiring and so challenging. It is a 24/7 job. No break... 

Yes I love my husband and I love Sofia, but it has come up to one point where I needed a break. Sometimes I purposely spend more time in the toilet. But even so I still feel pressured when I hear Sofia crying, even when her father is watching her.

I told my husband I'm stressed, I need a break. I want to swim. I NEED A SWIM. Alhamdulillah, last weekend I got the break I wanted. 

I didn't change a single diaper, I didn't wash a single plate, I didn't cook a single meal, I didn't hang a single cloth. No we didn't go for a vacation. Going for a vacation would just add more work for me. Packing unpacking, balik rumah nak kemas rumah basuh baju lagi.

While I had a good time swimming, he did all the housework. Before I went into the pool, I told him, "Kalau Sofia menangis, I buat tak tau je tau". Apparently Sofia didn't wake up until I'm done swimming. Lucky, papa.

Alhamdulillah. I feel really fresh afterwards. Fresh for a moment, after that I got so flat out. Penat hoi 4 bulan lebih tak swim. But the feeling afterwards... Fuh. I feel like I just rediscovered myself! Finally I managed to do something I wanted to do. Something for myself.

Oh. By the way a good friend dropped by in the evening with her family to visit Sofia. Totally made my day. A good swim and a visit from a good friend.

Time out for me ialah reading in peace. Ini tak, nak membaca anak dah mula berebut nak buku atau dia pun nak join sekali membaca tapi bukan nak membaca sebenarnya. Saja nak kacau fiza, tak boleh tengok mak dia senang. Hmm
