Being a mom to me is the most amazing and rewarding job. I literally and seriously absolutely love it! I want to be one of those moms that makes cute lunches and drives her kids to all their extra curricular activities. One of those moms that does homework everynight with her kids, that baths them, and tucks them in, and reads to them.

When I moved with my family to America as a child we really enjoyed discovering all these new American traditions. One that my Dad and I came across, around Christmas time, was a drink called eggnog. It was sold in a carton in the grocery store and we thought we would give it a try, it seemed weird but so many people seemed to like it. We were the only two in our family that absolutely loved it.

Thank you to MommaBlogga for this opportunity to share a bit of my story/ testimony with you. I am in awe of the blessings in my life.

When they say "ain't no hood like motherhood", they weren't joking.
I was diagnosed with depression many years before falling pregnant and it never crossed my mind that it would affect my motherhood journey. I had a fantastic pregnancy, no morning sickness or bad symptoms, I felt amazing. I would always ask my friends with kids for advice and to share their experiences.
