Meeting The Challenge Of Motherhood

This week’s Momma Stuff’s Question is:

What adjustments did you make in your life to fit the role of a mother? Can you share some tips to make your tasks easier?

Honestly, it took me a while to have finally accepted the roles of a mother.  That was one of my biggest fears. In fact, I told my husband and he agreed that we’d only get pregnant after 2 years of enjoying our marriage. But we woke up one day telling each other “we are ready”. So, we did after actively trying for more than 7 months. I couldn’t believe I was already pregnant when I saw the 2 pink strips that changed my life.

Few reasons of my fears were:

I don’t know how to cook. How do I feed my child when she’s ready for solid foods? At least my husband takes care of himself heehee! Love you more for that Mahal! I had no choice but to try. For my child. I kept on searching the internet, I joined different forums and read a lot of Parenting magazines that feature baby food recipes. Yet, there were times that I almost burnt the pot bcoz I completely forgot that I was boiling pieces of carrots hahaha! As days passed by, I got used to it. In fact, I could now cook my hubby’s dish Chicken Curry.

I hate to do the laundry. Hmmmm, I still haven’t found a solution to this. Hahaha! Glad washing machine has been there through the years LOL!

I am impatient. I just don’t have patience when it comes to handling kids. I just don’t have it. But the day my husband left for work somewhere else, I was physically and emotionally challenged. A full month of being a working mom, plus the house chores I had to bear, and the packing of our stuff to send home, I really don’t know how I did it. But I did. I guess I do possess this word “patience” in my system now. I admit, I still sometimes lose it, but I know I am getting there, with the help of my ever patient betterhalf.

To cut these ramblings short, I gave myself the chance to explore and learn from other mommies who are more experienced than I do. I’ve been only a mom for 2 1/2 years and I know there’s a lot more to come. Never stop learning from other’s experience. I believe that experienced mommies are the best teachers.
