One little big step.

The end of March, we decided to start the toilet training. Baby was 20 months old. And maybe some would say it was too soon. But we thought, it’s time.

Semua bermula ketika si baby mulai menunjukkan tanda pegang diapers setiap kali mau pipis, sambil bilang pis dan nunjuk ke arah toilet. Dan benar, beberapa kali diapersnya masih kering setelah mandi pagi, sampai menjelang zuhur. Setelah hampir sebulan setiap mau pipis dan pup dia sering bilang, akhirnya kami memutuskan mulai lepas diapers. Ga tanggung-tanggung, langsung day and night. Sepanjang toilet training, 3x ngompol di kasur waktu tidur malam, dan 2x kelepasan pup ga di wc. Sisanya, ngompol tipis-tipis kalau lagi main. Tapi alhamdulillah anaknya pinter banget lebih sering ngasih tau setiap mau ke wc…

Thank you for making our lives easier ya nak. It’s been great three weeks of learning. Mama so proud of you ?

Once an outlier, will always be an outlier. Doesnt matter how hard you’ve tried. No one cares. You will never be accepted. You’re not one of them. You’re nobody. Just let it be. Stop trying. Stop hurting yourself. Learn the art of not caring about anything, unless your own life. Cause nothing else matters.

Jadi emang sama covid ini ga boleh jumawa ya guys. Baru aja beberapa minggu lalu bisa bernapas lega, eh, round in circles here we go. Trauma aku tuh!

Husband’s family was just tested positive. My mother in law was hospitalized and the rests were having self-quarantine at home. But the issue was that, my husband also needed to isolate himself since he took care of his family during this time. Kalau awal Januari lalu kami isolasi sama-sama, Februari ini terpaksa terpisah. Waiting for 5 days to see if he developed any symptoms, then he took the test. Thank God it was negative.

It’s been a while since the last time we were able to leave the house, due to the never ending self-quarantine from January. So to keep us sane, we took the time to go out and about to a quiet place. Grateful to still be able to breathe in the fresh air.

So to sum up this month, we do still have to take this virus seriously.

Please stay safe.
