Wow. It has been a while! last post was in October 2011.
Here I am now. Nursing my 3 month old baby while typing up this entry!
Times have changed 🙂
I now have two beautiful boys. Both under two, my hands are FULL. I resigned from my post in Afghanistan when I was 8 months pregnant, and came to Australia (my home!) to have the baby here. We decided against returning to Afghanistan for it’s not safe with two babies. And I don’t feel like I can be a great mother to my children while living in Afghanistan. I won’t be the way I want my children to see me. We’re glad we made that decision.
Since then, we’ve really taken it easy and enjoyed parenthood. We’ve been traveling… lived in Bangkok for about 6 months before moving to Bangladesh (hubby’s job assignment). I loved Bangladesh!!! The people were amazing. I felt so comfortable, so unlike Afghanistan. There were no men with staring problems. Yes, it was hot and humid amd crowded and I was heavily pregnant with my 2nd baby. But I loved it. I won’t rant further. But I loved it. Lol.
So that’s the update!
I have decided to take time off work and spend as much time with my boys. Once they start kindy/pre school then I’ll head back to work. I’ll be 30 years old lol. I’ll still be desirable in the job market, I’d hope. Haha.
My boys are my priority. I’m a stay home mum and man, it is tough! Working in Kabul was waaaay easier.
I’m in Australia but I can’t seem to let go of Afghanistan. I follow it closely.
That’s the thing with Afghanistan. It grows on you…
