Being a mother is the world’s toughest job! No Salary, No Benefits, No Sleep, No Lunch Break, No Vacation Time! I, Rackell Villareal, mother to a beautiful and super kulit baby girl who is now 5 months old. Super daming nagbago sa buhay namin mag asawa ever since baby rhian came into our lives.
Sometimes I want to give up; I can’t imagine na super hirap palang maging INA! There are moments that cry a lot kasi super pagod na ko, but you know what whenever I see my baby’s smile lumalakas ako. Like today, I’m guilty in what I've done to my baby, di ko naman sya sinaktan (NEVER kong gagawin yun) pero I took her for granted for about 15 minutes. She slept around 10:30pm last night so I decided to sleep narin, but around 4am she woke up and wants to play, pero super sleepy parin ako (wala akong matinong tulog since January) and pagod dahil nga hands on wife rin ako and full time employee as well. So what I did was humiga ako sa paanan ng mag ama ko then pumikit saglit while she was trying to reach my hand and smiles at me all the time but instead of playing with her, I decided to keep my eyes close para matulog rin sya.
But when I notice na medyo sleepy na sya with matching kusot kusot sa mata nya and gusto ng magpahele, di ako nag dalawang isip and I hug her, say “Iloveyou and sorry baby” then hele na. Ayun after few minutes, tulog na ang anak ko while holding my lips. Yes! Super clingy si rhian, habang nag bre-breastfeed ako she keeps on holding my chest, lips and hands. I don’t know kung mannerism na nya yun but I enjoy it kasi ang sarap ng feeling.
I realized that I’m so blessed to have a baby kaya wala akong karapatan magreklamo , yung iba nga dyan lahat ginagawa para lang mag kaanak pero until now wala parin. L Kaya ako lubos na nagpapasalamat at binigyan ako ng isang anak na nagbibigay saya sa buhay namin, wala man kaming sariling bahay o magarang sasakyan, ang importante naman ay meron kaming anak na bunga ng pagmamahalan namin.

Lately, I got easily irritated because of lack of sleep. Swerte na ko na makatulog ng 2 oras na straight, and how I wish I can sleep for about 8 hours kahit isang araw lang sa isang lingo. Yun bang walang iistorbo sa pagtulog ko, but according to my friends medyo matatagalan pa bago mangyari yun, maybe pag mga 5 years old na si Rhian. Waaahhh…
So I want to share with you some quotes na talaga naman tumama sa puso ko. Now I fully understand my new job and I accept it with all my heart and there is no person stronger than a Mother and I’m proud to be one!
So to end my 1st ever mommy diaries, please watch this video, for sure kahit kayo magugulat na meron palang ganitong trabaho. Let me know if you also holding this position and I will salute you for holding this amazing job. Kudos Mommy!
