A Mom is a Jane of all trade, are you prepared to be one?

Any woman can be a mom but to become a mother is much more than giving birth to a child as great responsibility follows after childbirth. Motherhood brings meaning to a woman’s life as it is a  7 days a week 24 hour job, a challenging lifetime occupation with no pay but in return full of overflowing consolation and rewards. Mind maturity and readiness to invest most of your time for your family is important in preparation to become a mother.

A mom is the family’s ultimate caregiver who supports and promotes the physical, emotional, social and intellectual growth and stability of her child from infancy to adulthood.



Below are the reasons why I called Mom a Jane of all trade.

Educator. The first and ever best teacher of a child is her mom. Good manners and proper behavior are first taught at home. Likewise, it is mostly the mother who is patiently teaches a child to learn how to count, read, write and identify objects and colors in preparation for preschool.

Cook and nutritionist. Mom is the one who prepares good and healthy food for the family.

The best house help. Spending the entire week wearing sweats, early to rise in the morning and up each night until 10pm or so dusting, vacuuming or sweeping, washing clothes, ironing, changing diapers, shopping for food, cooking and feeding the kids,  walking around the house with unending task of picking up the same things and clutter over and over.

Accountant. She is the usual financial planner, doing the family budget and run errands in paying the utility bills.

She is the counselor, referee and peacemaker when kids fight, teaching discipline and empathy.

Wife.  The woman in the house is not only a mother to her kids but also a loving wife to her husband.

Trouble shooter. When some things go wrong around the house like leaking faucets or busted lights, a mom suddenly becomes a plumber or a technician. 

What it takes to be a mom is not an easy task to handle. Multi-tasking, discovering new abilities to make both ends meet.  Resting means folding those piled up laundry on the couch, while helping the kids do their homework.

What is more amazing about a mom is her selflessness and understanding. Thinking of her kid’s welfare and needs before anything else, always prioritizing their kids needs met before her own. The unconditional love of a mother to her child is immeasurable, nurturing and guiding her children to become a good members of the society with values, decent character and personality.
