    Quote of the Day 035: The Choice

    At times, we dream of something and we get stuck about it. Yes our dreams can be big or small.  But how do we make it happen? Do we set goals? Or do we just wish for it?

Small baby steps and we learn to progress with his developmental milestones everyday. A dream doesn’t need to be big. It’s those little moments in life that we attain happiness. So you make a choice. Either you continue wishing without doing something or wake up and…

    I am a C-section Mama and it’s okay: the Untold Truth

    I am saddened with the fact that C-section (Caesarean) Mamas face a little judgment when natural birth didn’t go as planned. There’s that feeling of being less than a mother. Is this true?

A good mother is defined by the sacrifices and love she gives to her child.”- Unknown It’s 12:10 midnight right now and it’s exactly the same time when Little M was born. Memories start flashing on how my birth story started. I can’t believe it’s almost a year since I…

A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” As a first-time mom, what questions have you asked after your baby was born? It’s now Month 11, Day 335, Week 47 and 5 days to be exact.  Back in August 2018, I gave birth to a sweet little man. All the mixed emotions that I’ve encountered were truly felt. I just had a baby! Of course, I was up and about ‘coz I made it! It was not that hard as I’ve expected! Hmmmmmmm….. Yes, Mama.  It really isn’t.  But guess…
