Stay-at-home Mom vs. Working Mom

My Mom always tells me that being a stay-at-home Mom is very rewarding. I didn’t understand what she meant until someone calls me  MOMMY and decided to stay with this little someone. It was very hard to decide whether  I would join the work force again or be a full-time-mom and I am grateful that I chose the latter. It may be the hardest job but very rewarding indeed. I have witnessed RJ’s firsts, from steps, to first smiles, to tantrums and doodles. Watching her development from the helplessness of babyhood to a blooming tween is just priceless! But this doesn’t mean that being a stay-at-home Mom is better than being a working Mom. I’m sure nobody wants to work for long hours while missing their child’s milestones.

I have high regards for working Moms as I have high regards for SAHMs. I salute working Moms for being able to raise their kids and still work. I look up to them for being able to manage their time and balance everything and sometimes I envy them for being financially independent and having the freedom of financial choices with their own money. They can buy the shoes  they want without looking at the price tag. They can treat out a friend without worrying about the week’s budget. They can even change their cellphones, acer batteries or almost anything anytime they want (I’m exaggerating again). Well, you know what I mean…they have these privileges that sometimes we, stay-at-home Moms, doesn’t have.

To conclude, both stay-at-home Mom and working Mom has their advantages and disadvantages. Both are not easy jobs yet the most rewarding.

Picky Eater

“We’re not rich.” I heard this from hubby when RJ refused to finish her food.  Yes, we are not rich but we are lucky enough to eat more than three times a day plus we can eat what we want and sometimes we eat out. But it doesn’t mean because we can eat anytime, RJ can squander food.

We have this “no left over policy” in the house because hubby and I believe that throwing away food is hardhearted. While the prices of food continue to rise, the number of Filipinos without enough to eat continue to increase as well. Just imagine how hard it is to sleep with an empty stomach. This is what I always tell RJ. But still, all she wants to eat are fish (selected) and cold cuts. Sigh.

I did tricks like this…decorating her food but it just worked for a while.

Now, it’s about time to try different new tricks like slipping veggies in her omelet or letting her eat lettuce, carrots and cucumber with chips and dip. Or may be I could have her involved in preparing and cooking our meals. Perhaps the more involved she’ll be, the more likely she’ll eat them.
