I hope my post is not too late. Mother’s Day may be over but then I think Mother’s Day should not be designated to just one day. I just want to take this post to share my thoughts on motherhood. Yes! motherhood You might be asking from a dad point of view? Just from my eyes from a growing up boy to a parent of a handsome boy.
I remembered when I was born, my mom made a decision to quit her corporate job so that she can take care of the kids at home. It was a big decision for her but she would rather chose to spend time to bring us up. I never forgotten all the roles that she have to take up. Whenever, we left for school, she would start on the household cleaning. Whenever we were back, she would revise schoolwork with us. Whenever we were sick, she would take care of us 24×7. Whenever we wanted to go out, she would bring us out to play. I never saw any tinge of sadness as she did all these. Everything that she did was so as to raise us up to be good children. To me, all mothers are very sacrificial. Sometimes we may not see it directly from them but they all love their children nonetheless. My mom could go with 3-4 hours of sleep per day if I had insommia in the night and wanted someone to play with. She did this without any murmur or complain!
Fast forward till today, I see the same qualities in my wife. For me as an I.T consultant, many at times, my work starts when most people get off work. This means, I have to leave my wife to play and take care of the my kid in the night. My wife will do it unconditionally. She would spend the nights playing with my kid, talking to him, feeding him. She would be like the “hawk eye” that watches and protect him.
There is something about mothers that made them unique. No matter how tired they are, they seem to find the strength to take care and raise their kids up. In my eyes, they are like superheroes without the costume. They never take a break from saving the world. Oops i mean taking care of the kids. There is always this mystical thing about the mother’s instinct that even till today I am still buffered by it. A dad’s instinct and a mom’s instinct is very different. Maybe that’s why GOD made man and woman to come together. They compliment each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
I want to keep this post short and not rant too much. Just want to wish all the mothers out there, have a great Mother’s day. Lets make everyday a Mother’s day. Parenting is never easy but the rewards of it is very great!=)
