My Due Date

by - Wednesday, March 18, 2020

This is it. 
The date the midwife and doctor said I'll be giving birth.

Orion may already be here by now. Or not, I really don't know. 
I'm writing these lines a week prior to the date, just to make sure I have commemorated the event. 

It is still surreal to me that I've gotten pregnant so fast after giving birth to Andromeda. Hell, it's still surreal I'm a mum, no matter the fact I spend my whole day with my daughter pretty much by my side. Doesn't help that she calls her dad all day long but rarely calls for me. The times I've heard the word "mum" can be counted on the fingers of my hands, to the point that I cherish it when she decides to grace me with it.
I know, some people will say I'll be tired of listening to the bloody word when she gets older, but somehow I don't think I will. After all, becoming a mum was my biggest dream in life and it still feels like a dream, one I don't want to wake up from. 

I'm happy.

It's weird to say it out loud some times. I feel like I don't deserve it. Like I've not done that much good in my life to get all this back as a reward. Because that's what having this beautiful family is in my eyes, the biggest reward I could ever ask for. 
Yes, it is still very early days and I don't know what the future might bring, but I won't let my worries rob me of the beautiful moments I get to live with my partner and my children - soon. 

There was a saying in one of my favourite movies of all times, one I get to live by every day.

Carpe Diem! Seize the day!

And I fully and utterly intend to!
