Motherhood : The hand that rocks the cradle.
Was meaningless to me 32 years ago. Thinking that being a mother is as easy as 1..2..3..
Come to the point that I have to move one step up in my life, finally I'm a Mum! Thrilled and excited of course, who's not.
Day1 : Over the moon. Meeting and holding my first born is an amazing experience. So loving it.
Day2 : The battle begins. Since I decided to breastfeed him exclusively, there is no turning back.
He cries, I blame my so little colostrum milk production, I feel so helpless.
He's not latching on properly, I get frustrated.
He cries for reasons that only him knows, I get even more frustrated.
He cries extremely loud, no pause, no breaks, always tenor.
I must admit that I usually talked and asked him what was wrong or to stop crying.
I even begged him to sleep when we are tired and drained from nursing him for more than 3hours.
Hungry? Wet nappy? Feeling hot? Tummy pain? Or just wants to smell Mummy?
Then I realized that being a Mum is not that easy after all. To be one, you need the power and strength of a horse. You need to be a multi-tasker. You need a lot of patience and courage. You need to be flexible. You need to be a fast runner (much faster than bolt) especially when he cries and you're doing something downstairs. You need to be a superwoman.
Your mini-you don't come with step-by-step instructions or even troubleshooting. They don't have that on and off button or that blue, red or white wiring. They only come with lots of special things..they are unique, soft, snuggly, cute and cuddly.
Being a Mum is like signing a lifetime 24/7 contract, no bank holidays,
no weekend incentives, no night differential, no monthly salary. But you
will have the chance to hug and kiss your mini-you just because you can
and because you're their all time lover.
