i-dont-hate-being-a-mother-i-just-miss-being-me

Do you ever had that feeling of wanting to explode? Was there a time when you found yourself crying for no reason at all? Do you often spend extra minutes in the bathroom for some peace and quiet, and pretend there’s no chaos when you go outside? Do you purposely sleep late at night for some “alone and just me” time? I say YES in all of those questions. In fact, this happens to me most of the time. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE MY KIDS. I enjoy being a mother and I wouldn’t…

I’ve been schooled! 10 Things My Toddlers Taught Me

at

I used to think that adults know better than the younger ones. Think of the knowledge they gained and the experiences they went through, plus the number of years ahead of me, it’s obvious that I will learn from those who are older than me. Well, not all the time. Apparently, kids can still impart knowledge on the older ones. Not because they learned a lot from experience but because of their innocence and honesty, adults don’t realize the life lessons kids can teach us.When I became a mother, I looked up to my own mom and…

at

I never really understood the importance of breastfeeding until I became a mom. My mother did not breastfeed me and, modesty aside, I think I turned out well. But when it’s now my time to be a mother, I realize that I want to give the best to my kids.The childbirth class I attended to advocate and encourage moms to breastfeed. My kids’ pediatrician also encourages me to breastfeed. So when I gave birth to my first child, I did my best just to give her the nutrition she needs. But immaturity and laziness ate me up that…

No wonder they call it “Terrible Two”

at

I am a new parent so I’m still in the process of learning everything about motherhood. I have not much experience in handling kids (taking care of my nieces and nephews for an hour doesn’t count) until I had my own. I’ve also heard a lot of complaints from parents with two-year old kids. Now I know why.My eldest daughter is two and I must say, she’s really handful. A real test of patience. Our everyday dealings consist with shouting, tantrums, crying, running around, climbing, and endless “No” every time she doesn’t get…

On Quitting Law School and Being a Full-time Mom

at

I’ve always wanted to be a lawyer ever since I could remember. Growing up in a family of lawyers, I thought being a lawyer is written in my destiny – and there’s nothing else I can be.Unfortunately not.After college, I didn’t pass any of the entrance exams I took in 3 different law schools. Call me stupid but I do feel it’s not yet my time. I was too naive and immature and I didn’t realize (yet) the implications of my actions. Two years after and much wiser and more mature this time, I…

New Mommy Alert: Tips for New Moms

at

Being a new parent is an exciting and fulfilling chapter in everyone’s lives. However, being a parent, especially if you’re a new one, is never going to be an easy task. Changing diapers, endless crying and sleepless nights are just the beginning of a lifelong journey.When I gave birth to my first child, words can’t express how I’m feeling. But aside from the feeling of excitement and happiness, I was anxious and worried at the same time. I have no idea how to carry a baby. Even if I attended a childbirth class, it’s…
