Mother's Day 2020

 Motherhood is one of the best things that ever happened to me.  Growing up with 8 siblings in poverty was tough so I told myself that I don’t think I will become a mom seeing how hard my mother worked to raise us.  I thought my Mom was out of her mind for popping out so may kids but now I understand how she chose to not give up on us even if it meant for her to carry all the weight on her shoulder.  I respect and love my mom for that.
I only have two and sometimes still tough but I’m glad I chose to personally raise and take care of them.  I think it makes a big difference on their development emotionally.  I had to give up my career the moment I learned that I was pregnant with my first born due to complications but I have no regrets, I love them dearly.
I was their first teacher.  I thought them at home during their ore-school years so by the time they were ready to go to kindergarten, they can read and do numbers already.  To me, it was a great reward of motherhood, to be able to teach my kids the basics stuff that they need for school.
Now both of them are straight A students and we’re very proud of both of them.
I have my husband to thank for supporting me to be a stay-at-home-mom.  It’s not easy financially especially that we send th both to a private catholic school but we are managing.
