Let’s have coffee

I had a good week, a good day but man oh man, life sure is filled with surprises.

If we were having coffee, I’d say that life sure is crazy! Here I was enjoying my week, opening packages and watching my K-dramas when all of a sudden I’m thrown into the pit of parenting.

I guess a little backstory is needed. I have a nephew. He’s entering puberty and the rebellious phase. Basically, he’s a pain in the butt and nobody has the patience for him except for me.

Just this night, we got into another fight. I am choosing to forget what he did because I know hope he doesn’t mean it. I am praying that it’s just a phase. I am hoping I can still make a difference in his life by trying a different approach when it comes to him.

I don’t know if any of the stuff I’m doing will work. Heck, I don’t even know if what I’m doing is still right. But I will try my best and I will not give up on him because I love him. He is young and he has the whole world ahead of him. I just hope it’s not too late. 🙁

Parenting is hard. My experiences with my nephews and niece are making its mark on me and I always wonder how they will turn out. I salute all the parents out there. You sure have the most difficult job in the world.

In all honestly, I’m not in the mood for coffee, but while we’re still at it, might as well tell you about this little poll I have here. I’m just asking my online friends what kind of content you like to see on my blog or what do you enjoy the most! I’d love to hear your thoughts, so go right ahead and drop a comment there or here or anywhere on my humble, simple, forgettable blog.


  1. Parenting is very hard! I’m sorry to hear about the troubles with your nephew. He is lucky to have a loving aunt like you who cares about him. It may not always feel like what you are doing is working, but keep at it and just keep being present in his life and caring. It will make a difference!

    • It is so hard. 🙁 Just this morning, I had a talk with his mom and it feels like she doesn’t really care. I don’t know. I hope that’s just me. Whatever happens, I have decided to give it my all. I will try my best.

  2. I get you, friend. HAHA I do. I have four younger brothers, 3 are teenagers and 1 is 22. See? Being a parent is hard and so is being an ate. 😀

  3. Honestly, just the thought of being a parent gives me anxiety! You have a job to raise a kid into a well functioning adult who hopefully has no crazy issues, and you wouldn’t even know if you did well until they’re actual adults. It’s hard!

    • My thoughts exactly!! I don’t have the courage, YET, to be a parent. It’s just scary. It’s a big commitment.
