A Sneak Peek of Motherhood & Kunjungan ke Pustakalana

Pelan tapi pasti teman-teman di sekeliling saya sudah memasuki masa-masa motherhood alias ibu-ibu. Walaupun saya masih di tahap robin hood (DUH, garing euy!), tapi karena obrolan baik online di grup, maupun offline saat reunian geng-geng, atau gosip-gosip santai (misalnya sebelum kelas zumba :p), saya jadi dapat gambaran: sepertinya semua akan rempong pada waktunya deh ya!
