Motherhood = Roller Coaster Ride

Mother's Day is next month and Agnes @ LilHyppo's Hypopotamum, organized a contest in conjunction with this special day. So, I'm trying my luck and join in the fun. The topic of the contest is ' What motherhood means to me? ' Motherhood journey is just like a roller coaster ride. Why did I said that? Well, lets see ..................

googled for this image

1) Exciting

Motherhood : Seeing their 1st step to 1st time going to school. Life is so thrilling.

2) Scream and yell on top of your lung

Motherhood : when the kids show their stubbornness and mischievousness

3) You paid the price, you have to be responsible

Motherhood : I brought them into this world and it is my responsibility to nurture them till adulthood

4) Can't stop half way and have to ride till the end

Motherhood : I can't simply give up half way and tell my kids "I don't want to be your mother anymore". It is my lifetime journey. A journey I shall walk till my last breath.

5) Satisfied

Motherhood : when I see them growing up healthily day by day

6) Challenging

Motherhood : When people around you start to compare and comment or when kids are sick one after another.

7) Heart-attack feeling

Motherhood : When I saw them falling down from the staircase or when I received a phone call from the school teacher......

8) Ups and Downs

Motherhood : Ups when the kids made me LAUGH ; and Downs, when I feel so stress-out !

9) Enjoyable

Motherhood : when they sing to me in their sweetest voice and said "Mama, I love you too !"

Motherhood journey is never easy, but fulfilling because it made me a complete person ! So, do you think Motherhood journey is just like riding on a roller coaster ? I do.

p/s : Thanks Agnes. I find this topic is so meaningful !
