My Motherhood Journey by Josie

Howdy everybody!

As some of you know I am on bedrest due to my embryo transfer procedure, I am advised to take a bedrest so I won’t be able to blog much this coming weeks. I couldn’t leave you here hanging so I asked some of my good friends to guest post for me. If you want to do guest post too here at MommaWannabe, do let me know by filling in the contact form.

Who are you?

I’m a work at home wife, mother of three grown-up children and three grandkids. I am foremost a mother, my priority above everything else.

When did you know you are ready for motherhood?

I got married at the age of 24 and I knew I’m ready to be a wife and a mother, so I was very happy when I got pregnant two months after.
What challenges did you face during the first years of being a mother?

Most challenging time for me was when my baby was sick, being a first time mom, I really don’t know what to do. If it’s not a serious illness or do I have to bring her to a doctor immediately, thank goodness my mother was always on my side to give a hand.

How many children do you have and do you want more?

Our plan first was to have just two children, now that we already have girl and a boy in the family. But after five years, I got pregnant again and gave birth to a healthy baby boy, who became my sole companion when I was left alone in the house when two older kids were at school and hubby was at work, so he’s a little spoiled, just a little spoiled. LOL..

What’s the best thing in being mother/ parent?
I love being a mother even if I considered it as a 24/7 job. I always treasured the times when they were still small and I can cuddle and kiss them anytime I like.
Is there anything you dislike about being a mother/parent ?

My biggest disappointment was when my daughter got married at an early age, she was not able to finish her studies. But I’m happy now with my grandkids, I’m enjoying them while they are still young.
What advice would you give to new mothers?

One thing I realized, that no matter how you want your child to have a life you dream and plan them to have, you CANNOT live their life for them, they will choose their own path. No matter how much it hurts, you have to accept the fact that they are an individual who will make their own decision on how they will live their life.

Motherhood for me is the most challenging role a woman can have. It can make you cry or laugh; it can make you sad and happy. But most of all it makes you COMPLETE.

What are your plans for the future for you, your family?

My plan for the future is to save money for me and my hubby, so we can enjoy life after the long years of taking care of the children. We should think ourselves now that the children are settled and have a stable life.
