The feeling of being a "Mother"


I love how my 2 years old speaks. Especially when she try to communicate with her father. My husband sometimes doesn't have any clue what she's trying to say. So I end up translating it for him. She's learning a lot now. When she learn new things from the show she watch, and it'll sink to her little mind and try to say it to me, I sometimes having hard times understanding it too. It take me a while to realize what she's trying to say. I am just so proud of her. Just like every mother.

Last night, we were doing Facetime on our phones. She was with her father in our bedroom while I was in the front room feeding my son. They called me to say hi, and all of a sudden I got emotional when she say "hi mama" as she keep kissing the screen. Looking at her through the screen already tearing my heart apart. I could not last a day without her. This is probably how mothers may feel when they are not with their children. Now, I quite understand the feeling being away from your children. Though she's just in the other room. My mind has been wandering and I have been thinking like 'what if' I am in the other side of the world away from them?

During my pregnancy of my 1st child.

What exactly the feeling of being a mother?

"A mother knows what her child's gone through, even if she didn't see it herself"
-Pramoedya Ananta Toer

“In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.” ― N.K. Jemisin, 

"Being a mother is one of the most rewarding jobs on earth and also one of the most challenging". 

"Motherhood is a process. Learn to love the process". 

"There is a tremendous amount of learning that takes place in the first year of your baby’s life; the baby learns a lot, too". 

"It is sometimes difficult to reconcile the fantasy of what you thuoght motherhood would be like, and what you thought you would be like as a mother, with reality". 
― Debra Gilbert Rosenberg

As for my own experience, I have learned and yet still learning how to deal kids that is one year apart. I am coping everyday to not lose my temper right away. And lastly, I have to always, always, always remember that they're still babies and don't expect them to act older. This has to sink in my brain. Motherhood is one of a kind adventure.
