For motherhood

Seriously I salute those who stay at home with their kids. I wonder how my mum did it last time with all 5 of us, no maid, juggling her career and what nod. I do not know how Kak Elisa go thru her confinement with her 3 toddlers and Izani the last time. I myself, with only 1 demanding toddler like Khilfi and 25days old Khazin, worned out easily and its only 11am in the morning. Dang!

Its not a greener thing being on this side either. I remembered when I quit my job and stay at home for 3 months, my ability and patient truly tested. When I was at that position i realise no matter u r at the peek of your career and enjoying all the benefit of having it all, being at home with ur kids and u have set on setting all full meal for the husband later when he’s back and keeping the house in shape is one hell worth of job. It needed more patient on earth u need to have and need all the bestest time management skills and all the domestic arrangement with the best motherhood skills u can have. U can loose all your anger out there feeling torn and tired but U cant right or else everything will fall into pieces. But no matter what, at the end of the day, you made it, and God knows u have given ur best shot of the day and everyone is happy, coz after all when u r mothers u definitely gifted with this ability to deliver it all. Yeah, who says SAHM just sit back watch TV and do nothing at home. I object!

So this post is dedicated to all mothers out there, esp those who stays at home with their demanding kids, I salute u guys for doing it. I know if i were to be in those shoes, I shall deliver the same no matter how grey or red i will turn into. And for those who actually out there and work, even you spend less time with ur kids, u still are their best mother no matter what.

A toast for motherhood ladies!

    Nice one Elin and Thank You very much for being so understanding.

    It aint an easy job for me at all. I dont sit all day, makan makan or watching tv. I have plenty of errands to do, and to get everything settled mmg out of time. Tak cukup masa.

    I raised Adam from day 1, with my 2 hands, no help from ANYBODY except suami tercinta. Dah la dengan pindah randah sana sini, lagi penat tau ?

    But, alhamdulillah that Allah granted me a good husband. He helps me a lot, and appreciate my job as a fulltime mom. As he said ” am willing to go to work, rather than stuck at home and do what you do “.

    Adam dah almost 5, dah ringan siket keje as dia dah banyak boleh buat hal sendiri without my supervision. It also helps, that he goes to school 3 days a week, from 9-3pm.

    yeah, i salute mums that does things without any domestic helper(s).

    Here I am, kat sini envy my friends here who have 2-3 domestic helpers at home. I guess I should bersyukur in the position I am in – full time housewife with one helper. Tu pun pening kepala layan bebudak ni.

    Mak-mak dulu memang tough!
