Unleashing Drama

Still a rockstar?

Posted on: July 28, 2017

Reaching 8 months of being pregnant! Omg! At times, it still feels surreal that I’ve been carrying my tiny human around for 8 months. Soon, she’ll be out and ready to play (and complete her thesis, cause high expectations, you know).

Selvan and I often have very intense discussions on the kind of parenting approach we want to take with our daughter. For the most parts of it, we’re both on the same page. We want her to read lots of books (just like us), to question, to think and to stay curious. I know, it sounds easier said than done but at least, we’ve to try to agree on some of the fundamentals in parenting.

I know religion will be tough one cause Selvan is all about discovering faiths and being more spiritual than religious whilst I’m Catholic — no two ways about it. So, on that aspect, it’s great that he is okay with her being baptised, having a Christian name and attending Catechism classes. I strongly hold on to the importance of faith formation and I know that in some of my darkest and most distress days, I quickly turned to God for guidance. I want her to be able to do that as well.

On a separate note, my time of working alone will end soon! We are (hopefully) hiring someone in a couple weeks and I can’t wait to have someone bounce thoughts and ideas with. It’s been very tiring these few months and I struggled to stay optimistic. At one school meeting, the school principal looked at me and said, “You know this is crazy right? You’re pregnant and doing this alone.” While the outer feminist in me went, “Oh no! I’m great and I love doing this,” the inner me wanted to silently agree with him and break down into tears. But yes, it’s been tough working alone and I’m so glad to have someone else join the team soon!

I also think this whole experience of being pregnant, working alone etc made me realise just how strong I can be when I have no option. I have to drag my aching bones to meetings and events, because no one else is going to do it. When a pitch goes well, I praise myself..when it doesn’t..I reflect by myself. Sounds a little pathetic, I know..but hey, it’s all an experience.

So yes, here’s to one more month of pregnancy before the little one is out to change my life forever.
