Many a times, we are so consumed by our role as a mother that we forget to be ourselves.
- My precious “me-time”: Being Myself.
- Being well-groomed is important. Afterall, a Mom is a professional job.
I always remind myself that I do not want to be “huang lian po”. So I make an effort to dress up when I go out. Yes, even when I’m sending my son to school everyday for that 20-30 mins. You will be surprised that the kids actually notice and I am happy to get compliments from my kids all the time. Well, but I dress up not because I want anyone’s compliment but more because I respect myself as a mom.
- “Couple Time”: Being his Wife, the woman he desires.
“ I need a degree first, house first, a career first and lots of money first.”

5)“Letting go” is the most important lesson I learnt about motherhood.
Having 3 children is the best decision I have made. Seeing them grow up everyday, playing happily together, laughing and looking after one and another gives me great satisfaction. Having 1 child is nice, but tiring because she needs all the attention from us. Having number 2 is fun and I can sit and relax while they keep each other company. But to me, 3 is the magic number. Number 3 totally changed the dynamics. Suddenly, they learn to negotiate differently and forming alliance (by persuasion or bribery) becomes an important skill. It's just exceptional. Thus, I blog to document the childhood of my children and to share with others about my journey on Motherhood.
