One month into my 50th year. Chong Chong a few days into his sixth month. A time, perhaps, to look back.
Shanshan and I don’t have a huge apartment. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
When we brought Chong Chong home from the hospital, our Yue Sao moved in with as well, and would stay with us pretty much nonstop for the next three months. Mom and dad were over during the day, but would go home just before dinner.
Since then, it has been mom staying with us from Sunday afternoon through Friday night, and dad with us from the morning until after dinner each of these days. We also have an Ayi that is with us five days a week for roughly four hours a day to clean and help with the cooking.
