My typical day as a mom

Hello read friends. I'm glad to find out that it's not only me who's having issues with noise but it's no fun.

Anyways, I was supposed to walk in the vaccination site today but the baby has been grumpy last night. I had to postpone it because I didn't have enough sleep.

I know there are moms here on read like me and I share the sentiment with you, mars, the difficulties of taking care of our dear babies.

I am a mom of 2. The eldest is 7 and the youngest is 1.

And since I've stayed at home, every day has become an ordinary, boring day for me. Not that I am not happy having kids, you know, I can no longer do the things I loved to do due to time restraints. Plus, the pandemic happened. Yes, I feel stuck.

We usually wake up between 8:00-9:00 AM, the baby would either go to her doodie for some Blue's Clues or play with her toys right away. Her latest discovery right now is the mirror. She'd go to the mirror right after waking up, smile, and started playing.

Saoirse

GGSS baby? (Gandang ganda sa sarili, baby?) (Just kidding. She doesn't know what Narcissism is.)

Then we'll go downstairs for her breakfast. She's a difficult eater, especially when she's teething. I have like 2-4 different types of foods and I'll stick to what she likes most. I hate it when she goes to sleep hungry because she'll breastfeed the whole night. So she takes snacks an hour or 2 before she sleeps.

Then she'll play a little bit before we she takes a bath. It's usually silent time, or just "we" time for the 2 of us after bathing. She'd either just breastfeed and sleep or breastfeed and play.

Forgive me for the mess. We sleep on the floor. We had to remove the bed because she might fall. Her playmate, that toy dog, is Violet. She sings and plays with her. Then Saoirse plays with her blocks and the piano. I am glad that my partner's eldest brother is single because he's the "Tito of Manila". He spoils the kids by buying them toys. The only toy I've bought for her recently was just the puzzles and she doesn't know how to play it yet.

When the kid is asleep, I can either watch movies in Netflix or write an article here in read. If I carry her while sleeping, all I can do is just comment on some write-ups single handedly. It's tiring to carry 7-8 kilos of sleeping baby.

We'll have snacks when she wakes up, watch some Youtube and TV. She'll then play for a few hours. Just like right now, I am free so I am writing. But I gotta to this fast because I had to take a bath.

I can no longer remember the last time I combed my hair. And when I had scrubbed my body. Because when I bathe, I had to clean the bathroom as well. Yup, I don't wanna bathe in a dirty bathroom. I pick the hairs and scrub the floor first. Sometimes I forget to brush my teeth.

I also have body pains every day. I guess it's because of the CS. Sometimes I wish I have one pain-free day. And that I can just sleep for a straight 8 hours without worrying for my babies. I want ME time!

So yeah, I think the moms here can totally relate on my situation: lack of sleep, tiredness, less self-care. I know we have to "love ourselves first". It's just that we need to sacrifice from time to time. I can do this. We can do this.

The self-pity, boredom, crying, sadness are common. I do think I have postpartum depression or deep sadness. Kayo mga mare?

One thing that I have changed in the house is sharing. Whenever we can, we buy "chichirya" and share it to everyone. The people in the house used to buy for themselves lang but it has changed. Of course, we would understand if they only have limited budget. But I'm happy that sharing has become a norm in the family. Yey!

I am sorry for this boring article. I got to go now. Have a great weekend guys!

To my sponsors, thank you guys. You rock!

To my friends and visitors, please visit my sponsor's pages. They are all lovely people.

P.S. I wanna become a member of Club Broke BCH. How do I become one?

I can totally relate to it sis but that was a few years ago, 9 years old na yung youngest ko ngsyon, pero magkasunod kasi sila ng panganay ko kaya ngarag is real during all those years. At least ngayon nauutusan na maglinis kahit magkalat sila😊

The life of a mom is a "happy mess". I believe you will not exchange it for anything though :)
