Merdeka post: our future depends on our next generation

In the spirit of Merdeka, let us all have a think about this statement. “Our future depends on our next generation”. I totally agree with this statement and I believe for all parents, we want to make sure that the next generation is better off than we are. But how are we doing this and is there anything we can do? Yesterday was the results release day for Cambridge IGCSE/O Levels/ AS & A Levels. Two of my friends’ children also received their IGCSE results yesterday. They both did extremely well, straight As! After chatting with them, I started thinking what was I doing when I was 15 years old.

Time sure passes by so quickly without us realizing. It has been 11 months since I became a Mom. Next month will be Baby A’s first birthday! Can’t believe she is turning 1 year old!

The First Thing I Learnt After Becoming a Mom

9.5 months into becoming a mom, I have learnt so many things. You thought that everything will be all good and rosy after you have given birth. You thought that it was all over after 9 months. Well, sorry to say this but you are so wrong. Now I know why those who became a parent always say, they wish to turn back time!

I am sure everyone has their own experience and story. For me, the FIRST thing I learnt after becoming a mom is that:

Whoever invented the phrase “sleep like a baby” is definitely not a mother.. It should have been, “sleep like your husband”

Note: applies to those who became a parent or mom and took care of their baby on their own with no helper at all
