French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.
“Congrats for the Versatile Mommy Blogger Award!!!” shouted my friend Ann.
A “Mommy’s” award? really? doesn’t it sound a bit cheesy to you, honestly?..
You have no idea of all those things that used to sound cheesy in my single years B.C. (Before Children). But the moment the Attilas landed into my life, Cheesy turned into Sweet. “So sweet, so cute, soooo precious”.. yep, this is me now. I even make eatable cookies!
(note: I still have red lipstick of course, an old pair of dusted Louboutin. Just have to find out where..)
Does it sound cheesy if I confess that Ms Attila made my day this morning just by saying “I am so lucky because my Mum is so cool!“? not sure what she meant by that, I should have checked my stock of M&Ms, but it did the trick. Will you eyes roll if I tell you how thankful and blessed I am feeling each time Mr Attila offers me a flower (although I told him a thousand times not to pick them up)? Cheesy, I know..
Those guys are my gurus, the loves of my life. They teach me the meaning of “unconditional love”, how to become a better person every single day (and a faster one: shower, hair and make up in less than 10′. Audience included. Try to beat that!).
I don’t even mind the functional brain cells I have traded for my kids. Since I have became a “stay at home” Mum, my social skills have totally vanished. But I am fluent in poopoo, pipi and know all Frozen songs by heart! I became a much more cheaper date: I don’t fancy exotic vacations any more, I’ll be ecstatic with one trip to the bathroom by myself.
My kids are my best cardio and yoga coaches: who need Sivananda to learn how to twist when you can naturally carry a screaming toddler, two gallons of milk, talk on the phone while confirming that “yes,darling your pooh really look like Olaf, Nothing will happen to him if we flush, he’ll fly right to Anna, I promise!“.
Truth is, I do cherish my cheesy life !!!
So thanks again Ann for this very precious award I am sharing with my accomplices! 🙂 It really means a lot.
We have decided to bend the rules a little bit. We follow so many great blogs (scroll down my blog for the list), we could not just select 15. So the Award goes to all the inspiring bloggers out there who make me laugh, think, travel and feel normal! Congrats!
