Motherhood is a commitment. There are no backsies, once you are in, you are in for Life. To have someone depend on you for everything is a challenge. I mean that is a person! Whatever he will be in the future is on you. IT’S ALL YOU. And sometimes, such term can become too literal especially if you are a Stay At Home Mom.
It’s all you to prepare the food, to clean the house, manage the bills, take care of your kid and everything else in between. To take care of everything to the point of forgetting yourself. How selfless and servitude, right?
Before my M’s (marriage and becoming a Mom) I have a C. A career which serves as your identity, your accomplishment and life. It is where your world revolves. But now, being on the other side as a Stay At Home Mom (SAHM), Career had stepped aside and now seems pretty trivial.
This new job demands your whole being. You 24/7. No breaks, No weekends, No holidays and No Pay. Who would have thought that I’ll be taking a smile and a grin as a payment? Hahaha.
But as tiring as it was, at the end of the day when you look at your baby sleeping and cute and cuddly… It was all worth it ❤
Amidst the rewards I reap and lessons learned for this new role. I feel like I still need to prove something. Not to anybody but to me. I feel like I owe the professional in me to give her an outlet where she can exist and shine.
Then the opportunity to do freelancing…
