Wearing Kids-A Guest Post at MAF's sitte



The woman bounced down the path, her arms pumping strong on her afternoon jog. She looked so fit. So light. So free.

I did my own bouncing as my 2-week-old baby fussed in the Baby Bjorn strapped to my chest. My 4-year-old son was taking his turn in the stroller. My 2-year-old walked beside me, holding my hand that held onto the stroller.

Another person passed us—a biker—also looking fast and free.

I, on the other hand, with three small kids, felt a bit, well, full, and busy, and mostly, tired. And a bit jealous, wishing I could spend my afternoon jogging, or clicking, or, should I even dream of it? Napping.

  2. I stumbled across you blog and had to leave you a note. I am originally from Borneo (Sabah) and my mom is an Indonesian. I, too, have a four-year-old and a two-year-old, and I recently gave birth to our third three weeks ago. We are now living in America (Chicago), in ministry, and seriously considering mission work. It sounds like we are in a very similar stage of life, only that we have swapped locations. =) I just want to say hello.
