I have been asked by friends time and again how do I manage to juggle everything in life? Let me quote one of my friend's private message, "boy how do u juggle all of these? mom of 2 kids, a wife to mon, a nice job, time to blog, time for ur self! i admire ur passion in life keep it up"
I am not claiming I have a well-balanced life. I just do my best to live everyday as if there's no tomorrow. Let me give you a rough idea how my typical day was like. Yesterday, I had the privilege to work on half day. I met hubby for a spur of the moment lunchdate before I headed home and transform from a career woman to a supermom. Once I am home, the nanny doesn't touch Baby Gian unless I ask for her help. I fed Baby Gian his fruity snacks, changed his soiled diaper, and put him to sleep. So, what did I do when Baby Gian took a nap?

I kept myself busy with Instagram and my newly found fantastic free iPhone app called Frametastic since Kyla was still in school and I can't leave Baby Gian sleeping alone on the master bed. At his age, it is too dangerous. Hubby and I have instructed the nanny strictly to let him sleep on his playpen when we are not around. Better safe than sorry.
On days that Kyla goes home at 2pm, I would fetch her from school before heading home and our conversation would go like this:
KYLA: "Have you gone home to see Baby Gian mommy? Why are you still carrying your bag?"
ME: "Not yet, sweetheart. I wanted to surprise you. You know that I love you and Baby Gian equally, right?"
KYLA: "Of course I know mommy. It's fine with me if you go home first to check on my baby brother. He needs you more."
On days that I am privileged to report in the clinic a bit later, I still manage to bathe Baby Gian before heading to work while the hubby brings Kyla to school. On days that I have to spend time with the hubby alone, I would fetch him at the train station and dine with him outside while the kids are already sleeping. This is how I make the most of my every day life.
Let me leave you to ponder with this quote:
"Don't count your days, make your days count."
