I grew up in a family of women. 3 sisters and my mom - enough to drown out my dad's voice. And we're a great little family even with my dad always going off to work in some godforsaken places sometimes. Even with my 2 elder sisters who are 7-8 years apart from me and my twin sister. It's hard work to keep the family together and my mom's probably the pillar who's been holding it together.
And as years gone by, we all grew up and you know how it is, we tend to move along our way, chasing after the $$$ and career and life experience, sometimes not being able to attend every family gathering.
And then, my little niece popped up in jan'06, a nice lil' addition. And a timely one too. What a difference a child can make! Sometimes it's funny seeing all the adults (myself included) just staring at lil' Kyra sleeping or drinking milk or just prancing around. Now all conversations start with "eh, did u see kyra's blog?", "eh how's the lil fella?". it's amazing that it even brings out the kid in us while we clown around kyra just to see her smile.
she must be thinking what a clowny smurfy family she's gotten herself into!
And so now, we patiently awaits another lil' addition from my 2nd sis. Babybooklet.....!Coming soon in Dec'07!
