Being A Mom Taught Me...

Being a mom has taught me....

THE ART OF MULTITASKING
I can no longer take my own sweet time in most of the things I do. No more washing hair, scrubbing and cleaning my face separately during shower. I had to do it one shot. It is amazing I could do it in 1 minute when I used to do all that in 10 minutes before the baby came.

PATIENCE
Impatience is my trademark. Step on my tail & I will explode. I have learn to be patientand I am still learning.

BETTER TIME MANAGEMENT & PRIORITY SETTING
Staying up late to clean up the mess from the day while the rest has gone to bed and snoozing away so that the next morning, Isabelle & mummy has a clean place to play and spend the day. Prior to having Isabelle, all the chores can wait till weekend.

APPRECIATE CARTOON
I now watch more Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes a day than my beloved series in a year.

UNDERSTANDS FUSSY BABIES & EMPATHIZES FRUSTRATED PARENTS IN PUBLIC PLACES
I am not a snob. But before we became parents, scene of screaming kids and wailing babies really put us off. We would turn and give them the irritated please-shut-your-kid-up-you-are-disturbing-us-and-very-annoying look. We could not understand why can't the parents do something or just do not attempt to bring such difficult baby out to torture the rest of the public and please just stay home.

PUTTING MYSELF LAST, SACRIFICE & APPRECIATE
The real meaning of sacrifice and I can now feel what my parents specially my mother felt and went through raising me. Not only I appreciate what my parents has done for me but I know I want to give back in folds the love they gave me in any ways I possibly can. Thank you Mom & Pa.
