Becoming A Homemaker

Posted on: Tuesday, July 3, 2007

I have never thought of becoming a homemaker. I cannot imagine what it will be like. However the destiny to be a homemaker soon came when my husband was posted to Australia for work purposes for a year and a half.

For that month, my days will filled with packing the kids and mine stuff into the cartons provided by the company. It was also filled with excitement and fear. Fear….because

  1. I have been working all the time and I have never look after my kids for a full whole day before.
  2. I have to look after 2 boys. (2years and 6months respectively at that time)
  3. I was afraid my boys and I will find it hard to adapt.
  4. I can’t really cook.

However though I feel scared, it was already a confirmed situation. There was no backing out. I had to convince myself that I could do it.

30th of June 2007 was my last day in Singapore. Family gathered at the airport to send us off. My hubby has gone to Australia a month earlier than us. Therefore on that day, it was my boys and I. It was a night flight and fear crept up to me again. How was I to managed 2 boys on the plane all by myself?

They were pretty homesick on the plane and the baby made quite a fuss. I felt so embarrassed then because some of the flight passengers was not able to get any sleep. However, the 7 hours flight seems quickly over too me and I was glad that my hubby was waiting out there for me. It was such a relief to see him. But it also means that I am really officially a homemaker now. 🙂
