No one tells us what it’s going to be like to have a baby.
Everyday is a new day with challenge, worrying & tiredness but also with a lot of fun, happiness, motivation & love.
I admitted that parents today are exhausted. We are trying to do it all.
It’s not easy to keep up with day-to-day parents’responsibility & coordinate my baby’s life to make sure he had the good caring & love from both parents.
We came to parenting with knowing nothing & try to learn everything. We did experienced many new things for the first time like sleep deprivation for months but always showing up energized body all day; having dinner at 10:00pm with the dim light after baby well sleeping; the rarely having a single moment to ourselves even to pee; very high emotion controling requirements with a patience to understand a cry, a tantrum, much less take a shower and wash your hair & worry much about someone’s eating, sleeping & even his poopAnd there are many that we guess all parents already knew.
However, we feel very blessed to be parents. We got a love unlike one we’ve known, more than your self love or couple’s love that we can spend our whole life to make him a happy life. We learned about the strengths that we didn’t know we had, deeply understood meanings of the words sacrifice, patience & resilience. We know that we’re not strong but we have to learn to be strong to deal with fears. We learn to accepting ourselves, both good and bad sides & improving day by day. We know that there’re many conflicts, agurment in our marriage life but at the end of the day, we love each other, love Gau & believe we can help each other better everyday. Together we are delivering the toughest & the most wonderful job-“being parents”.
Over 3 years, we know there’re still many goals we haven’t achieved yet but we did tried to make a happy home for you, our beloved son. Thanks for teaching us many wonderful things in parenting journey, give us a chance to build our own home & make us feel grateful everyday
Life’s unpredictable my beloved son. We can’t promise to you a really rich physical life but we will try our best to give you a home where you’re absolutely loved with all our heart, raised with all our efforts & always be yourself.
