|That's me, with the longest, slimmest, model-like legs!|
Why did I forget myself on this special day? I realise now that I've become a robotic mom. Get up in the morning, wash the water bottles, get breakfast ready, feed no.1, get him ready for school, wait for no.2 to get up, feed her, play with her, bathe her, get lunch ready, pick no.1 from school, feed them, play with them, beg them to nap, play with them, get dinner ready, feed everyone, eat, pray, love, sleep. Day in and day out. EVERYDAY has been a MOTHER Day for me, if you know what I mean. And yesterday was no different. Mother's Day, besides being a day for kids and families to celebrate their mothers, does also help to remind mothers to take a break, reflect on their journey as mothers and give themselves a pat on the shoulder for having come this far. It's only been 4 years for me and I look forward to many more Mother's Day to come - not for the flowers, the discounted buffet lunch or the cake, but to remember myself as a M-O-T-H-E-R.
