A Mother is born

Standard

Tick, tick, tick, tick, time ticking and the moment is growing near for another mother to be born.

It is normal that we shower attention to all new babies, this blog is for the mothers that gives way to the spotlight for their kids.

My advise before the due date, sleep and rest as much as you can. It is going to be a fun filled adventure. My son’s paediatrician was also a friend and when I asked him when will my life get back to normal (my son was 1 month old then) he answered “Oh in about 19 years, give or take a year.” and then he smiled.

True to the fact, motherhood had changed my world. I didn’t imagine I would still enjoy Disneyland pass my 30’s :). Or be able to make houses out of Lego bricks (remnants of what used to be cars or ships) and be more creative.

Yes, there are sleepless nights, cranky moments and tantrum spells but they all go away and mutates into task arguments, Ipad or TV time and bedtime. The venture continues and so will my blog.

 

For all the babies to be born soon, en guard! A mother will be born with you!

Summer Babies! Mommy’s Brainies?

Standard

Two of my friends are giving birth this summer, they are both excited and anxious to start motherhood. I’m a mom and its intense in a profound way.

Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, holds her baby Prince George. Research shows pregnancy can affect women's brains.

Makes me think about the article I read on shrinking brain size during pregnancy in CBC news on May 2, 2014. Quite unnerving on the fact that the brain size decreases 8% and bounces back near normal, but not the same size about 6 months after birth.

I could just imagine the sacrifices our mom’s had and now us as mom’s to endure all of this for our child. Nevertheless, I have survived, still am surviving and loving every minute of it 🙂
