Mothers are special people
God knew that from the start
That’s why he created them in His own image
and to them gave the biggest heart.
She’s able to heal our hurts with only a kiss and hug
She’s able to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner and is never slow as a slug.
Mothers are special people
God knew they’d always be
He created them to do so much that involves you and me.
She has to be a teacher to teach us what we need to know
She has to be a taxi driver to get us where we need to go

Remember to send greetings, cards, flower and gift to your mother on Mother’s day. I’m having a date with hubby and the kids on mother’s day. Now I need to find a cream for my acnes, which appeared a few days ago blame it to the hot weather outside. I read good review on acnepril product.
This is so funny that I need to share. Taken from a mother and baby magazine. How to tell if you are an over-competitive mum.
1. You start reading Lord of the Ring to your baby and tell everyone at your mothers’ support group how much she enjoys it.
2. You make sure that you and your tot are fully coordinated in the latest Guess outfit for lunch with the other mums.
3. You help your toddler build a sand castle in the playground and then pretend that she did it single-handedly.
4. You speak to your baby in French – even though you have no connection with France and the only French words you know are bonjour, merci beaucoup and sauvignon blanc.
5. You demand a re-count when your baby fails to win the ‘baby idol’ contest at a baby fair.
6. When your child learns to walk before his first birthday, you give your top-of-the-range stroller away to a friend whose baby ‘still really needs it’
7. You carry you baby’s health book around in your handbag just in case a stranger wants to see how much weight he has put on.
8. You realise that you have more toys and equipment than the playgroup your tot is attending.
9. You keep a video of your child’s first word running on a loop on your TV when your friends and their babies come around.
10. You not only frame your child’s first doodles, but have them copied and frame as Christmas presents for family and friends.
So are you in this syndrome? I am proud to say that all my kids walk before their first birthday, but I never give my stroller away (he..he..). As I am typing this post I’m admiring my newly purchase netbooks.
The way I see breastfeeding is a blessing not only for the mother but the child as well. It has been said that mother’s milk is the best, highly nutritious and builds the baby immune system. I strongly believed that the nursing relationship has great attachments, deeply connected and bonding between mother and child. Parents have various stories to share when it comes to breast-feeding from child one to the next, they face different experiences.
My most challenging, I would say the toughest and tiring breastfeeding experience will be my first child. As a first time parent I have no idea of how would it feel when the baby sucked or the proper way to nurse a baby. I know it is a way to feed the baby and after weeks of my breastfeeding journey, I discovered that it was more than just feeding the baby. It is all about love, bonding, and relationship and so much more. It is definitely a priceless experience I ever had.
The following was taken from a book “Parenting Principals from the Heart of a Pediatrician”. I bought this book for quite sometime now and I haven’t been able to complete the entire book. I have been encouraged by this section specially the title, and I hope it does for you mommies out there.
So here goes:
It has been well said, “The father is the head of the house, the mother is the heart of the house.” Moms hold it all together. They keep the emotional balance.
A mother’s heart is what transforms a house into a home. As we enter adulthood, we often contemplate the memories of home. I doubt we think how the bricks were laid, or how the paint was chipped around the window seal, or where the stains were upon the carpet. But no matter what kind of home you were raised in, your thoughts are emotional. To me, memories of home bring forth feelings of comfort, security, love and peace. For others who did not have the privilege of being raised in a godly home, they may have feelings rising within them of hatred, pain, bitterness, wrath, and injustice. Mothers, God has given you the role to make the difference in the memories of your children.
Another Monday to start a fresh week. I love to start my week with this prayer for my kids adapted from Barbara Cornet Ryber.
I washed the dirt from little feet, and as I wash I pray, “Lord, keep them pure and true, to walk in Your way!”
I wash the dirt from little hands, and earnestly I ask, “Lord, may they ever willing be, to do the humblest task.”
I wash the dirt from little knees, and pray, “Lord, may these be the places where victories are won, and guidance sought from Thee.”
I scrub the clothes that soil so soon, and pray, “May they be dressed throughout eternal ages in Your robe of Righteousness.”
Before many hours shall pass, I know I’ll wash these hands again; And there’ll be dirt upon their clothes before the day shall end.
But as they journey on through life and learn of want and pain, Lord, keep their precious little hearts cleansed from sin and stain!
For soap and water cannot reach where You alone can see.
Their hands and feet, these I can wash — I trust their hearts to Thee.”
For many years I have been immerse myself in my work passionately and committed. I love working passionately on something that trill me and sometimes it doesn’t even feels like work. When I decided to become a stay at home mom lasts year, I find it hard to shift myself from a working mother to a stay at home mother. The process began slowly but surely and now I am in the process of a positive change.
One of the most challenging things for me as a stay at home mother is the fact that my own behavior is on show 24/7. Children listen to what their parents say but it doesn’t go into their brain if they see their parents do the opposite. Other word is they do not walk the talk. I have to take a deep look at myself and ask if I would be happy to see my kids turn out to be something. I also realize that my kids look up to me everyday.
I have been reminding myself to be their inspiration not just a good example that I am special for them and exceptional and that make me excited to wake up every morning. I think the best way to be an inspiration is to feel inspired.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there.
- Your children know how to read HTML code but can’t operate a vacuum cleaner.
- Your children tell you that you said “yes” and you don’t even remember the question.
- You go to the grocery store and find yourself having a good time.
- Your husband asks how your day went and you rate it on a scale of 1-10 repeats of “stop that!” or “no!”.
- You can’t remember the last time you didn’t have to share your drink.
- You mistakenly tell the kids it’s “sanity” time when you meant to say “bed” time.
- The laundry seems to have taken on an evil nature and you begin to feel that it’s out to get you.
- You dread hearing the phone ring because it’s a sure sign there’s about to be trouble amongst the children.
- It’s finally your turn on the computer and “Touched by an Angel” is just coming on.
- You go to sleep with “I’m bored” or “I’m hungry” still ringing in your ears.
