Writer’s Workshop: Enjoying Motherhood

Tiger  girl and me

Being a mom is one of the best thing that has happened to me You know you enjoy being a mom when you wake up every day looking forward to seeing the smiles on your little ones faces.

I am happy even though you are extremely exhausted having only 3 or 4 hours of sleep the night before as the little one refuses to sleep through the night. I clamber out of bed even  though you really would like more time in it as you know that you have to prepare breakfast for the little one and start on the daily routines.

I become a “cool” person as   messes and kids outbreaks  do not bother Me that much. When they occur you just drop whatever you are doing , clean up the place or straighten out the kid before resuming the activity you were doing before you were interrupted. Yeah.. I’m cool like that!! I’ve figured out it’s no point getting all worked up by the little ones and their antics after spending 10 yrs+ in the education field.  I don’t need any more worry lines added to my face.

I incorporate the timetable and schedules of my little ones first before assigning other activities which you would like to fill up your schedule with other stuff which I would like to do. It has been working well and I do intend to carry on this way.

I get really excited when I can buy things at a discount for the kids. During our recent trip to Korea I managed to get these four pair of shoes for the kids at $75.

Holidays which I plan have the kids interests in mind and you are happy when you see your kids having fun playing. The best thing is that they insist that you be with them and play with them together. I’m savouring the hugs and kisses that they shower on me.

” I love mummy” , ” I really enjoyed myself” and ‘ I like this”  are sentences which really melt my heart.

Do you enjoy being a mother?
