Welcome to Mommy Jam's blog!
First, let me make a confession. I often see myself as a person who is socially awkward, always out-of-touch, always struggling to fit in. I feel the same way as a mother. I find it difficult to practice what tradition preaches about motherhood. I can’t be like the “cookie-cutter” moms who are so good at this thing, and looking like they just came out of the cover of Good Housekeeping.
As much as I want to look and be like them, I cannot. I dress in an “I’m meant to stay inside the house” way. I would cry over spilled orange juice. I don’t even try calling myself a good cook. I squeeze in Netflix during baby’s naptimes.
To add to that, I have dreams that I want to pursue. I want to start my own business. I want to grow my freelancer profile. I want to write a novel. And other things that may not go well with being a stay-at-home mom.
But I’m sure there are other moms out there who share the same sentiments. This is what Mommy Jam is all about. I want to reach out to all the moms who struggle to keep it together everyday but loves and adores her family just the same. I want to connect with moms who want to explore home based job opportunities and put up small businesses of their own. I also share Mommy Jam with some of my mommy friends who, like me, find being a mom while pursuing a passion a difficult but worthwhile journey.
So let’s get things straight, mommy: The perfect mom does not exist—there is only the REAL MOM that so many people fail to notice. But, hey, you should be proud of yourself! After all, parenting is never easy. Whether you’re a working mother, a single mother, a stay-at-home mom or a soon-to-be mom, you are up there doing everything for love. So let this blog be your voice and let’s show the world what a beautiful human being you are!
