I love being a mom!!!
This is my ultimate dream, being a mom is the happiest day of my life. I become a better person I learn how to forgive and let it go; I learn what the true meaning of unconditional love is, and what the life of being a mother is.
“MOTHER”, “MOM”, “MAMA”, “MOMMY”, “NANAY”, “INAY” is a big role not just a word, a role that we need to fulfill, embrace and love it.
Part of being a working mom is a lot of sacrifices you really need to know how to manage your time, learn how to handle your emotions and most of all you need to show and let your kids feel that they are the most important person in the world, that no matter what they will be our top priority.
There are lots of considerations why some of moms still consider being a working a mom, it’s not just a career or ambition, the number one fact is the financial matters. Now a day’s cost of living is expensive come to think of it most of us our salaries is not enough to sustain our needs. Some of us want to prove something in ourselves. Whatever the reason is why some of women still choose to be a working mom, there is a big reason behind it.
Do you know the feeling that your “maternity leave” is about to end and you have to face the reality that you have to work for 9 hours again. It’s so painful especially in the first two weeks, and I would say I salute OFW mom’s how they were able to survive the sadness.
As early as possible we need to tell our kids why we need to work so they can understand why we need to leave them for a while. In my experience, as early as 1.5 years old every time that I will go to the office and my son is crying and begging me to say I will explain it to him “Mommy needs to work or else we cannot buy your milk, diapers, clothes, toys and we cannot eat, we cannot pay our bills, you cannot watch mickey mouse” and he will let me go. Of course I need to admit that there are times that he will be having a tantrums and he doesn’t want me to let it go, it’s so heartbreaking seeing your son crying and you really need to leave. There are times that I can’t help but to cry while driving, but I need to be strong for the future of my son. Someone will say it’s a drama, but believe me once you are mom you will feel the same that what we feel right now as a working mom.
Let me share some of my thoughts what is life of being a working mom
Working mom when you are expecting a baby
Working mom when you gave birth
Working mom when you are raising an infant
Working mom when you are raising a toddler
Working mom when you are raising a preschooler
Come and join me to reminisce and discover a life of being a working home and dreaming to be a WAHM.
I’ve been working from home since college and until now that I am a mom. There are days when I wonder about how life would be like if I work out of the home because being a WAHM is no easy job. I’ve actually gone to job interviews then would later on realize that I would really rather work from home. Good luck to your journey as a working mom and a dreaming WAHM!
Thank you 🙂 hope that someday I could be a WAHM like you
I had been a working Mom for 20 years and after 20 years of being a corporate slave hehehhe, I took the courage to resign last Sept 2013 to tend to my kids ( although malaki na sila its never to late – 20 yrs old and 10 yrs old respectively). I salute working moms and WAHM as well it is not easy journey….
When I resigned sacrifice talaga in terms of financial kasi pag WAHM wala naman regular income, but I took the risk kasi nahihirapan na ako kumuha ng maid pa alis alis na din at naapektuhan na ako ng absence. Madaming nagtatanogn bakit ko daw nirisk ang career ko when I am at the peak of it at maganda kasi sa PLDT, but at the end of the day its all worth it…
I hope you will soon be a WAHM when you find the right time and timing as well.

Hi Ms. Cielo thanks for the advice! I really need to prepare regarding financial since we have a lot of expenses, hoping that someday I could be a WAHM. Right now I’m starting looking for an online job as part time, I am still on the process, honestly I don’t know how to start pa talaga ang alam ko lang I want to be a WAHM to be with my family.
