Goodbye July, Hello August! – Feeling Thankful! ♥

Happy Monday my dear Readers/co-bloggers! 🙂

I hope you all are doing awesome while reading this entry. 🙂

It’s the third of August and it’s Monday! 🙂 I assume that most of us are on their panic mode. Whether you’re a SAHM or a Working Mom. Our job as Mothers are just pretty demanding!

Time flies mommies ano? Nakakagulat kasi isang pikit lang ng mata ko, hala! August na ulet. Birthday ko na 🙂

Sh*t I’m turning 28! For real?!

I remembered when I was still single, mga around 20ish yata ako nun. I made a list of the things I wanted to achieve by the time I turn 30. If I’m not mistaken I wrote there:  “I should have my own car by 25.” ;  “I should be able to travel the country”; “I should be able to pursue Medicine”; “I should have around Php 500,000 in my savings account.” Ang taas lang ng expectations ko before no? And I realized that wala dun sa mga plans ko ang mgkaron ng family and magkaroon ng baby.

Totoo! I’m not kidding. Sobrang OC kasi ako (until now). Ako kasi si “Planner” – hindi ako mabubuhay ng walang planner sa buhay. I want everything in order, lahat maayos, lahat dapat ready, lahat should fall into place kasi pag hindi, naku! Iinit ang ulo ko talaga. But everything changed when I had Saab. 🙂

When I first knew that I was pregnant, hindi sya agad nag-sync in sa akin. Kahit kay Martin. Talagang ngpatest ulit ako nun sa OB para matauhan kami pareho. Tapos ayun na, totoo pala talaga sya. I was 2 months pregnant na nung nalaman namin. Sabi ko talaga sa inyo mga mommies, nakakawindang kasi nga diba? We did not really expect it. So talagang struggle sa amin pareho yun. But I am not saying na ayaw namin mag-kababy. Ayun naman yung kahit kelan ay hindi sumagi sa isip namin. Siguro thankful din ako na si Martin yung naging hubby ko kasi not all men are brave enough to be a dad. Hindi ko naman minamaliit yung ibang daddies, of course meron silang kanya-kanyang reasons.

Nakakagulat lang mga mommies kasi, whenever I tried to look back and reflect on the things I have done in the last 27 years of my life. I can bravely say that meron naman akong na-improve sa pgkatao ko. Ang nakakagulat nga is that I became more responsible (totoo! Maniwala kayo, lalo na yung mga friends ko jan) 🙂

Iba kasi talaga ang adjustment pag naging mommy/parent ka na. Talagang LAHAT as in LAHAT ay magbabago. Idagdag mo pa ang napaka demanding kong trabaho sa bahay at sa opisina. We don’t have a yaya btw, so kami lang talaga lahat gumagawa. From the laundry, cleaning the house and doing other household chores.. and taking care of Saab.

I just realized na even if I did not plan on having a baby yet when I was younger, I was lucky enough to have Saab in my life. I may not be able to pursue Medicine but Saab taught me a lot of things na I will not be able to find in any book. She taught me the value of patience, hardwork and selfless love. I never thought I will be able to love a person na hindi ko pa nakikita. I never thought na may ie-extend pa pala ang patience ko.I never thought na I can tolerate such pain when I was in labor, for the sake of the one you love.

Right Mommies? I was just so happy that Saab was able to teach me a lot of wonderful and extraordinary things in life. 🙂

So there, as I go back and reflect on the things I have done in the past 27 years.. I can say that I am the BETTER VERSION of myself.

The Best Teacher I had so far was EXPERIENCE.

It’s back to work Mommy!

I only had like 4 hours of sleep last night. I need to get up at around 4 AM to get ready for work, in addition to that I couldn’t sleep right away last night because;

1) Saab wouldn’t want me to leave her in bed 😦 so I needed to sneak out of the room and I was left with no choice but to leave her crying with my MIL. (Oh poor baby, I wish Mommy has all the time to spend it with you)

2) I could not sleep well because apparently my husband was watching the Wimbledon Finals. Though I think that it was really a good game. 🙂

3) I was able to do all half of our laundry, cleaned the living room and dusty staircase 🙂 Ohhh-emm-gee that felt heaven. I felt productive last Sunday. 🙂 #happymom #missionaccomplished

4) We get to bond with our little girl last Saturday and watched The Minions 🙂 It was super duper fun. I find Saab so funny whenever she imitates how the minions talk like the “Bah-nanah” hahaha 😀 Here’s her happy face last Sunday. It was raining so she was not able to show off her backless dress and my husband made her wear her jacket instead. Regardless, she still looks adorable! 🙂 ♥

Isn't she lovely?

So, it’s Monday. Yeah I know, it was like two weeks after I blogged again (boo). As much as I’d like to blog everyday but my hectic schedule won’t let me. I’ve said this before, being a mom is a LOT of hard work. Period.

This week, we are expecting another new hire class for our Account. It means, more work and more work and trainings. I am enjoying it though, I know I super love my job next to my family but sometimes I wish I could get to spend more time with Saab. Instead of teaching other people, I badly wanted to teach my daughter a lot of things. The alphabets, nursery rhymes, pronunciations and stuff like that.

I wonder how other working supermoms do all the juggling of tasks at home, at work and their personal life.
