Parenting is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Hands down. There is no instruction manual to turn to, no foolproof way to any task, and no one-size-fits-all solution to any challenge.
Talk about the mundane daily tasks, parenting has a million tedious aspects to it that are seemingly never-ending. You can never really grasp the entirety of this fact, even at just the basic physical level, until you’ve been at it for a while. That’s how tiring it is.
On the other hand, there’s an immense responsibility to it. You only get ONE chance to be the parent of your child’s childhood. Not that you’ve to do everything perfectly, but you really wouldn’t want to screw it up. The safety and health on all aspects of our children – physically, emotionally, spiritually – falls on your shoulders. That’s how heavy it is.
Next comes the never-ending worry. Trust me, whether your child is one year old or ten years old, you’ll always worry for them. I have no idea what “overprotective” means until I became a mother. Even though I’m not much of a worrier by nature, but parenting has awakened fears I never knew I had.
Lastly, being a parent comes with more responsibilities and stress than any occupation, but there’s no monetary compensation of any kind. The irony of it is that the more time you spend on parenting, the less money you make. The more money you spend on parenting, the less money you save. Haha!
But above all, LOVE is the reward you get. LOVE makes all the heart-swelling, earth-shattering, near-madness, and time-consuming challenges of parenting worthwhile. And LOVE is the greatest thing a parent can give and receive from their children.
This year, Mother’s Day falls on 14 May 2017. So, mums, let’s take a moment to reward ourselves for all our hard works. Every year, I buy something for myself on Mother’s Day. And I’ll continue to do so until when Edison makes enough money to buy me a Mother’s Day present. =)
Without further ado, here are my Mother’s Day gift picks that I’m sure every mum will appreciate. So, get one for yourselves or for your lovely mummies. Show your appreciation for these deserving ladies in our lives.
