Hello There!! Lovely people of the internet world!
I’m so glad to be back! I took a short break from my virtual life, to spend some quality time in the actual, real life that I live in :p I’m glad I did! There’s nothing more gratifying, than spending time, in the company of loved ones and doing , whatever gives you pleasure and peace of mind 🙂
However, I had been working on Hop, Skip and Jump, before I took my break. So, now that I’m back, I’ll quickly jump into it!
As most of you may know, apart from being a writer and an avid crafter, I’m also a mom to an amazing toddler, who keeps my life full and extremely interesting! For that reason, I’ve been asked tons of times, by my working and non working friends (new mommies) what I do to fill up my time, staying at home and “not working”.
First of all, being a Mother= working unlimited hours of time + overtime + after hours + whatever else is left in between.
Now that we have that cleared, lets move on. 😉
I became a mother at a young age and I cannot stress enough, how important it is, (if you want to maintain your sanity) to stop telling yourself that your life will be over, after you have a child! In this day and age, we’re brought up to be independent, in order to survive the rush, we call life and work our hearts out, in order to fill up our bank accounts. It may seem like your life has come to a standstill, just because you don’t have an office going job. BUT, unfortunately that is just because we’re conditioned to believe, that is what will happen. NO, its not a propaganda or a plan against our generation. It comes naturally, when you’re used to being on your feet and earning a livelihood.
Obviously, I have to mention, that its only the women who face this dilemma. Since, we all know, that men are rather unfortunate, for they will never know the joys of being a mother! Yeyyyyy!! *self high five*
As far as wondering, if you’re doing enough, to help your child grow to his/her potential, don’t worry about it! It happens to the best of us. Just make sure to take a breather, every now and then and you’ll be just fine 🙂
Hop, Skip and Jump, is going to be, a new series of posts, which will include tips and ideas on holistic child development, learning and interaction, along with spending quality time with your munchkins.
I hope that these will help you gain confidence as a mom and that it will make spending time with your precious loves, that much more gratifying!
