Crave for babyBeing the youngest child in the family, I always longed for a baby sister or baby brother when I was young. Wherever I go, babies sure attract my attention. Even now, I am already a mother of two young kids, I still love babies. I miss my children's baby moment so much.
Although I adore babies a lot, I don't plan to have another baby. As a full time working mother, I am feeling exhausted almost every night when I retire to bed. Juggling between family and work, just like a candle burning at two ends. Furthermore, my husband and myself desire to have more space and time for ourselves. I have the heart to have a baby, but I don't have the energy to raise the baby. (心有余而力不足）We will stop at 2 children, unless God give me a surprise.
One fine day, when I have the sudden crave for baby again, I told my daughters.
Me : April, May, mummy loves babies so much. In future, you get married and have babies, by then mummy has retired also. Mummy helps you girls taking care your babies, ok?
After thinking for a minute, my 7 years old April, she is a very possessive kid showed her disapproval on my idea.
April: No mummy, you cannot take care of my baby and Mei Mei's baby at the same time. You may mix up my baby and her baby.
Will I be such an old clumsy grand nanny who can mix up the grand kids???????
