proud mom...

a week ago we visited the dentist in Al Hammadi Hospital  to have the kids' (all of them) teeth checked.  we were set for an appointment on  a Monday for fillings and extractions (of milk teeth that need to get out of the way of  growing permanent teeth). as soon as we got home, my husband and I talked to the kids about what to expect.  i kept on talking, almost repeatedly, that my husband had to stop me and remind me that things will be fine. obviously, I was the one with the jitters..lol..  Monday came but they only had their teeth filled.  We went back this afternoon for the extraction and I'm so happy that things only took a few minutes.  I'm so proud of my boys for being so cooperative and brave through out the whole procedures.
patiently waiting for their turn. i had a terrible childhood experience with a dentist that's why i grew up afraid of even visiting a dental clinic for just a check up, lol..

in limbo...

I can't believe it has been 6 months since i last posted something in my blog. But I do log in almost everyday to read the posts of blogs I follow. I don't know what happened..I just felt like I'm lost. Confusion devoured me. Honestly, being a stay-at-home wife and mother of three has taken its toll on me. It's not easy especially if you live in a place where you can't drive by yourself or go someplace else and run errands. If we were living in an open city maybe I wouldn't feel suffocated..but imagine waking up everyday to be greeted by walls upon walls. Even my kids have become time-disoriented.

Don't get me wrong, even with eyes closed I would lovingly and loyally take care of my family..my life revolves in it and I just love doing it. But there came a point in my life when I just wanted a personal niche for who I am- apart from being a wife and a mother- as my own person. Someone who is also financially independent or at least contributing something...

But if there's one thing I've realized in the process it's that I can never be me totally without the everyday drama of cleaning house, cooking, doing the laundry and all things in between.  I still get sad every now and then but just by looking around thinking that my husband and kids are  depending on me is enough assurance that yes, I am significant! =)

and with that, I want to share some photos from our short vacation in the Philippines...don't get bored, please...

enjoying nature..tree climbing is something they can't do here in Riyadh..

p.s..  I miss waking up in the morning with the sun rays touching my face...
