Whenever I leave her at home to head out for a date night with my husband or resume my dance classes, I feel the #mumguilt even though I know time apart from my baby and for myself is a good thing. I can’t pour from an empty cup; I need to constantly remind myself of that.
How about a recent motherhood moment that made you smile?
Every day I am smiling when I spend time with my daughter. Every minute we have with her is precious, especially since we both work.
What kind of mum do you aspire to be?
A mum that my children can confide in, and share their secrets, their happiness and their sorrows. A mum that they know will always be there for them. A mum that tries her best to provide a safe, clean and happy home together with dad.
How has motherhood changed you as a person?
I’ve learnt to let go of things/people that make me upset/unhappy, and that what is most important at this stage of my life is spending time with my daughter and not missing out on moments/milestones with her.
What do you love most about being a mum?
I loved being pregnant, I love being a mum – every aspect of it! It is so fulfilling and such a blessing to be able to have a child and to try your best to give them the best.
What did you love about being pregnant?
I had a relatively easy pregnancy except for the morning sickness in the first trimester and the sore back in the last trimester.
I loved how pregnancy made me look, I loved hearing her heartbeat and watching her progress every time we went for a check-up, and I loved feeling her kicks. I also loved knowing that I was blessed to be able to carry something so precious for those nine months.
