Being A Mom

I really thought I’m prepared for this. I thought its gonna be easy
but it’s not.  No amount of books & advice will prepare you for this
because your child is different from theirs. What is applicable to
them may not be applicable to you. It takes a lot of physical,
emotional and psychological challenge to be a mom. It’s a 180degree
change of your life.

First, there is sacrifice.
There will be a lot of things that you have to sacrifice when you
become a mom. This will include your time, lifestyle, sports or
hobbies. For me, I don’t get to do what I normally do like the sports
that I’m good at and the life that I used to have. It is totally
different now and I accepted it already.

Second, there will be questions.
Everything you do now is for the baby. There will be times that you
get to question yourself, am I losing my identity? Who am I becoming
now? Is this the new me?

Third, test of patience
This is something that got tested the most. The crying, the throwing
of things plus my tired body. Oh boy! It is really hard to have
control. There are times that you want to scream, cry and breakdown!
Hey , it’s alright! I tried it! After awhile you will be back to your
normal sane self again.

Fourth, LOVE
despite all of those crazy things happening to you, the LOVE that you
will experience is much more greater than those.

When your baby looks at you,

hugs you, kiss you or calls you MAMA.

It’s all worth it! We
love selflessly, we become stronger and tougher in this journey of
ours being a MOM!! It’s a 24 hour job.We don’t have vacation leave, we
don’t get to have time-outs, no sick leave and no salary but the
feeling of fulfillment is more rewarding. It might be hard but then
again IT’S WORTH IT! I am a mom and I won’t trade it for anything.


Got Engaged Got Married

We all wish for that fairytale love we see in the movies and I believe that we all have that too. It may not be that grandeur but it is there somewhere. You just have to open your eyes, feel, and let love in.

I know some of you have seen this but I just want to share it again.

Getting engaged to someone you love is the best feeling of all and what makes it more special is the effort that he did to make it more memorable and much more meaningful!

After the engagement of course comes the wedding preparation, it takes a lot of decision making from choosing the date, church, reception, theme the list goes on. Most of the couples end up fighting for the things they want in their wedding day but in my case. I never thought of what I wanted and that’s where my problem is. Rio’s just like “ I leave it all to you, I want you to be happy it’s your day” . Some girls will like that but I didn’t, I wanted it to be a day where people will see the details of the wedding that it is about “US”. When I explained this to Rio, he then realized that it is both OUR big day. He made time despite his busy schedule, he was hands on and to my surprise he was more meticulous than I was when it comes to details.
