Perfect Life

"I won't ever, ever do that to my son", that's what I thought when I saw a mother yelling at her crying son in the middle of a parking lot.

"I will be spending my time teaching my kid to love books, to play be the coolest mom ever!!", that's what I told myself when I held my son in the hospital after he was born.

Perfect mom, perfect model, perfect life.

How did I know that there will be days when I don't feel like doing anything - except sleeping or reading my book?

How did I know that there will be times when I just don't have the patience to deal with my son's tantrum - and yelling at him is the only thing I can think of?

How did I know that there will never be the coolest mom - because even though you're cool for now, still there are days that your son simply doesn't want to talk to you, and you become his worst enemy =)

How did I know that there is no such thing as a perfect mom, let alone a perfect life?

But now I know.
Thank goodness, now I know =)


  1. Sabar.. ini yang kadang susah. Kalo Mika udah main, dia maunya diselesain dulu segala urusannya, padahal, sementara gue udah harus berangkat kerja. ninggalin gak tega, tapi diburu2 gak bisa. jadilah, guenya yang gak sabar. dan mika dengan tenangnya, cuma bilang, "Sabar subur, mama... Mama ini gak sabar deh."

  2. @ferina: bener fer, sabar itu mahal harganya yah, hihi..mika pinter banget sih bisa ngmg gitu
