Happy Mothering

11 March 2016
There are lots of first moments in my daughter's life. Being a full-time mother, I have the great opportunity to witness every precious day. Sometimes my dear husband envied the moment because he was not around when she does something for the first time. But I told him not to worry because I caught it in video or photo and besides, there are more of those moments to come.

My baby is now 18-month toddler. She can now carry objects on her own. Having said that, last Sunday, she and her dad surprised me. They knocked at the door and when I opened there she was, holding a beautiful bouquet of flowers with a trinket on top. Though her words were not clear, the love was loud enough. The best Mother's day ever. 

Though it's my second moms day, still I considered it first as it was the first time that my girl can hug and kiss me to celebrate such special day. Thanks to my  better half for making it all happened (next time your excuse to play outside won't work to surprise me, think of something else then). 

In case you're wondering, in Ireland and UK, mother's day is celebrated on the forth Sunday in Lent. Whereas in most countries, it is celebrated on Second Sunday of May. While on Arab countries, they celebrate it on March 21st which vernal equinox. Nonetheless, the occassion is the same and that is to honour mothers and celebrate motherhood. 

So to all moms / mums/ mamas / nanay / inay, cheers to us.

    I see that your little one is getting bigger. You must be loving every minute of being a mom. It is a wonderful feeling to be a mom. :)

    It really is a big blessing to be a full time mum especially if you are a first time mum, nothing is more precious than to witness your little one's milestones and growth. I have missed a couple of milestones in my baby's life when I went back to work after a few months of going back to work. I consider it a very big blessing that I won't be missing anymore since I have become a full-time stay-at-home mum! :)
