9 months of being a SAHM
I quit my job in June 2009 and today, it will be my 9th month being a stay-at-home mummy.
Yes, being a SAHM does have its sh*tty moments but after considering the pros and cons of being a SAHM versus being at work, I think its pretty clear (to me) that SAHM is the one of the best decision we have ever made (on top of our persistence in natural childbirth, exclusive breastfeeding and homemade baby solids).
Money cannot compare the magical moments you get to spend growing up with your child together. Those memories cannot be bought with any amount of money.
12 months of breastfeeding (of which the first 6 are exclusive breastfeeding btw! :D )
Of course, when Ben turned 6 mths old we started him on solids but other than that, there has NEVER EVER been a speck of formula powder in our house at all. And the fact that for the first 6 months I exclusively breastfed Ben!! I'm really proud of this! :D
21 months without menses
21 months!!! Is that
It goes back to the moment I start conceiving Ben in early June 08, so up until today, it has been 21 months I have not have my menses!
Of course I do dread the moment when it comes back to my life (have heard enough horror stories about how painful the cramps are when it first comes back) but until then, I am just going to stay chill and relax and enjoy this moment!

So that's about the mini celebrations for me today. Thank you for reading this post! :D
