My personal motherhood professor
Becoming a mother makes you appreciate your own mother more than ever. Simply going through the “terrible two” stage of your child is a feat in itself. Sometimes the complexities and challenges of my own motherhood experience make me wonder how my mother coped with raising me. But then again she’s my very own super mom, isn’t she?
She has always been my source of strength and inspiration when I was growing up and even now that I am a mother myself. Whenever I feel stressed with my mommy duties or overly concerned with a misdeed, my mom would always comfort me and give me some motherhood insights along with a gentle reminder that I was also a handful when I was growing up.
She’s really my professor in Motherhood 101, never running out of patience and practical advice for a daughter who frequently has motherhood dilemmas. Even now she would periodically check on me and my family just to make sure that we’re all fine. The whole family agrees that she’s one cool mother, mother-in-law and grandmother.
Nowadays, she spends her time with her grandchildren trading stories with them and sharing old fashioned games that she enjoyed during her time. The kids in turn taught her how to use the internet and other high tech toys or gadgets that they have. We turned her to our version of Lola Techie who plays video games with her grandchildren and surfs the net in her own time. You can even catch her playing online Bingo when the kids are not around. She often plays the Foxy Bingo which has leisurely games that she prefers. So, when I get to my golden years I still want to be like my mom, celebrating her life to the fullest and continuing to be generous with her love and affection.

Pringles Potato Chips and motherhood can definitely share the tag line “once you pop you can’t stop”. Motherhood is like an insurance policy that starts when the baby is in the womb and continues until the mother ends in a tomb. These catch phrases may sound cheesy by my mom would definitely stand by these words.
