I'm a SAHM...No More! (Updated)

About two years ago,  I took a break from my corporate employment and focus on being a full time homemaker. I want to celebrate it! I want to cherish while it lasts just in case I decided to again pursue corporate employment in the near future. This experience enables mo so much time to reflect...and on those moments that I can, I want to think aloud. I have so many things in my mind that I don't think my status update in Facebook would take them all in and so I'm starting this site.

Well, for a "newbie" like myself, I don't think that it's a walk in the park. Contrary to what others would say, I still do care about days and holidays, because I also welcome breaks when my son, Chase, doesn't have to wake up early to school, so he can sleep as much as he wants to.

Everyday for me is an adventure of trial and error of learning how to instill discipline, study habits, eating habits, etc. Deciding which just right attention without being overprotective, or boring, or a "party pooper" at some time while making sure he gets just the right slack. The challenge of having a greater weight in molding one's son is there! Who said there is no pressure in this!

I wrote an article on the Rewards of Becoming a Stay at Home Mom on Smart Parenting Online. It's my favorite.

And so my adventure begins...

The phrase "working mother" is redundant.
by Jane Sellman

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.

Hi Mommy Des,

I read from a previous comment you made to another blogger that you're using FERN-C for your family.

I would like to know whether you'd be interested to become a distributor, coz distributors actually get unlimited free boxes :-)

Find out more on the Kabuhayan Swak na Swak feature on www.fern-negosyante.com or text 0922-597-6070 for more details


thank you

About Me

My Photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
