On being a stay-at-home-mom for while

I must admit that as a working mother, there were times that I dreamt of being a stay-at-home-mom so I can personally take good care of my kids. And because I am blessed to have and enjoy my two months maternity leave, that dream of being a stay-at-home mom is somehow granted even if it is just a temporary and in just a short period of time. But now, after staying at home for a month, I realized that being a stay-at-home-mom is indeed not easy.

While I love being with my kids, there were times that I feel so useless. My body and mind need some works to do not only those household choirs or just taking care of my kids but those office works I used to do every day. I already miss reporting to work as well as the people I used to work with. There were also times when I already felt so bored in life especially when both my daughters are sleeping. I am just so glad that I have my netbook with me as well as books to read that help me keep my sanity intact.

Maybe it is not yet the right time and I am not ready yet to be a full time mom. Or maybe this kind of feeling is just the post effect of giving birth. But the only thing that I am sure with myself right now is that I am happy with my kids and I am feeling so blessed to have them. Maybe the right time for me to be a stay-at-home-mom is yet to come when everything else is in place especially if those financial concerns are no longer a big problem to deal with.

It’s Valentine’s Day once again. Flowers are in the highest price. Chocolates are so in demand. And love is in the air.

It’s time to celebrate with your loveones. And no matter how you celebrate it with the one you love, I just wish you all to have fun and enjoy.




It was on January 23, 2012, Monday, Chinese New Year, at exactly 11:50 am, a healthy 6.6 lbs little baby girl named KC was born.

The contractions started at 5:30 in the morning with 4 minutes interval. I was admitted at the lying-in clinic at exactly 8:00 am at 5 cm, suffered the labor without anaesthesia (that’s my choice kasi ayaw ko pa matulog) for 2 hours, until my ob-gyne checked that I was already 8 cm. Brought to the delivery room at exactly 10:00 am and finally gave birth at 11:50 am.

Guys, thank you so much for your prayers and let’s all welcome baby KC here.
