Inay, Mama, Ma, Mommy, Mom

Nope, it is not Mother’s Day today, don’t we secretly wish it is everyday? {wink wink}..

So all mothers will feel special,.. valued,… appreciated!

C’mon, let’s admit it- being a mom is not always glorious and blissful — it is not always belly laughs or sweet smelling babies — it is not always rainbow colored (is there such a word!?).

From pregnancy, to giving birth, to breastfeeding (or not), from raising kids through infancy, toddlerhood, preschool, school age and puberty years… from tweener to teenager..

You might be married or have a partner.. (or seems so!)

You might be a single mom (hats off to you, strong mama!)..

You might be living abroad away from your immediate relatives, and raising your young family and feel so alone (let me tell wherever you are, it still gets lonely at times)..

Parenting is hard. Period.

Motherhood is hard.

Then you add other life demands and expectations, it is enough to lose your sanity.

Should I be a stay at home mom?

No, I cannot give up my career. I have worked so hard for it!

Should I go back to work?  Can I trust the yaya to really take good care of the kids while I’m working??

There you go.. and they are just some of the questions that will go through your head..

And then there will come a time you will just get lost in all your kids’ needs and household obligations, that you have forgotten yourself..

You have forgotten your dreams, your own goals..

That’s why I created this blog..

This is for you, Inay, Mama, Ma, Mommy, Mom…

The purpose of this blog is to

UPLIFT your spirit, whenever you feel down.

ENCOURAGE you to do what you think is best for you and your family.

INSPIRE you to be what you have always wanted to be – coz that’s when true happiness will come in.


Hi, my name is Liz.  I used to be a WAHM, currently a SAHM but looking forward to a new career. I do support breastfeeding (Exclusive and Extended) as I have proudly breastfed my son for almost 3 years (Don’t worry if you don’t, I’m not a breastfeeding Nazi, but I do encourage you to try and try and do not give up)!  Oh, and I’m also a homeschooling mom — wait, what??? Yup, I know the last statement will raise a lot of questions (and eyebrows!!)

And so dear mother, this blog is for you, for us moms, whatever situation or stage we are in – let us support each other, because we need it.
