I was 31 years old when I first became a mother. I never thought it would be a gigantic responsibility. I never thought that my life would change big time.
When I became a mom, without any lessons, training or proper education on handling children, I slowly learned how to take care of my children. Every single day is a learning experience.
Every child is different. The way we handle them varies depending on their characters. Sometimes, I see my characters in my children. Something that makes my job easier. I know how to handle it.
I may sound like motherhood is an easy task. Maybe it sounds easy on how I am saying it because I am enjoying the tasks. It is difficult, to be honest. There are lots of changes, physically, emotionally and mentally.
It is hard to put back the body that I once had before. I used to have toned body as I was so hooked on going to the gym after work before. I played badminton almost every night. Now, it is more of bonding with my children, cooking for them, taking care of them. I don’t mind if it will be difficult for me to lose weight.. at least I experienced being toned once in my life. Haha..
Emotionally, I became so attached to my children. That my every action always concerns them. Everything must be for their betterment. I don’t spoil them. I should say, I am quite a disciplinarian (like my husband). However, my thoughts always give consideration for them.
I have said this a few times in this blog.. When I was pregnant with my first child, my father told me that I am blessed because not all women could be a mother.
This is one of the reasons why I cherish being a mother. I live for my children, for my family.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! I pray that you find joy on the responsibility that God gave you. You are wonderful.
