Our mother, nor their mother’s mother, did not bestow upon us a manual on ‘how to be a mum for the first time’ or ‘how to be a good mother’. I wish they did because then I would know what I’m doing right or what I’m doing wrong. Don’t we all wish motherhood was THAT easy?!
During last year’s Mother’s Day I wasn’t officially a mum yet. I was officially pregnant, but I haven’t experienced motherhood. Now my baby is on her 11th month here on earth… motherhood couldn’t have been anymore amazing.
To be honest, it’s not all daisies and meadows; it’s definitely a ridiculous roller coaster ride of emotions. I learn something new everyday. I learn to do things I never thought I could. My husband is definitely a great cheerleader because he got me through a lot of my downs and made it all turn around.
Especially as a stay at home mum, I’ve been hands-on with Kheira since day 1. I definitely have a better understanding of what my mum and other mums out there go through. Being a full-time mum is exhausting especially without help. I can’t imagine those mums who work and has to come home and be a mother because that’s a whole new entire job description. I salute you!!!
After officially being a mum last June 27, 2015 (when my lil’ Kheira was born) I never felt hardship in my life with what I went through, actually what I’m going through. And I’ve been working ever since I was 16! Regardless of the hardship of being a mother, it’s the most rewarding job I’ve ever done. I never felt this kind of unconditional love ♥
This year’s mother’s day is much more special ever since we found out we have another one on the way! Kheira is growing up so fast and with this coming baby I get to do it all over again! Being a mum, is a full time job for the rest of your life. And it’s the most rewarding. I give all the mum’s in this room a standing ovation for all what you’ve done and continue to do!
As this is mother’s day was to celebrate my motherhood, I would never forget to greet, acknowledge and gratify the woman who most especially inspired me to become the best mother I can be…
Thank you for being our super heroine. Through all the good and the bad – you weathered the storm for us. You are more than words can describe. You are our mother ♥
Be a blessing to others! xx
