I always found it corny when people refer to their babies as “bundle of joy.” When my niece came, however, that was really how it felt. And there’s really no denying that she turned our worlds upside down, even my mom’s, who is so zen, we thought nothing could ever affect her anymore (and I meant that in a good way).
So world, welcome our bundle of joy, Sofie….
She’s the first apo and first pamangkin from both sides, so it’s no wonder that all our lives revolve around her now.
I remember praying this weird prayer at the start of the year that I hope to play a new role this year aside from being a daughter/sister/friend/lawyer. Of course I was thinking along the lines of girlfriend/wife/mom (haha!) but tita…tita isn’t so bad at all. In fact, I think it’s the best role I’ve had yet. 😉
