With great power comes great responsibility. This popular quote from an equally popular superhero movie franchise perfectly describes the feeling of being a hardworking momma, and this has been proven all the more in the middle of quarantines and lockdowns. We working moms have to juggle the thin line between housework and our day jobs. Not to mention, our kids being home 24/7. But really, who says that there’s an off-switch to motherhood (it simply doesn’t exist)? But despite the juggling act, the journey to motherhood sure is one fulfilling role that cannot be replaced by any other.
This Breastfeeding Month, we asked nursing moms to share their joys and highlights about being a mom.

“The best thing about being a mom is knowing God has entrusted you to care for someone very special to Him. God trusts in our abilities to nourish our children, to teach them right from wrong, to encourage their God-given talents, and discipline them when they are being led astray. The best part about being a mom is the opportunity you are given to raise someone who can bring more peace, love, and happiness into the world than when they came into it. 🤱🏻🌏 I love being a mom!”
“The Best thing about being a mom is waking up to cuddles, to little alarm clocks, to giggles then often times to toddler and infant crying together real quick 😍😂😂😂 another day another morning with my boys…. every day I’m in love .”

“The best thing about being a mom is that no matter how much I miss doing everything before i got pregnant I am way happier and more fulfilled right now. I never knew unconditional love until now, no matter how tired or hungry or restless or wasted or dirty I feel, seeing my baby smile at me takes it all away. Words aren’t enough to show how much love I feel for my baby, I just cried while typing this answer 🥲. I feel so lucky to be a mom 🤱🏻”

“The best thing about motherhood is being able to witness every milestone and achievement (even disappointment) of my children. I am blessed enough to spend every single day with them. Motherhood i’s a beautiful journey that I will cherish forever. ❤️”

“The best thing about being a mom is you can experience love at its purest and at the same time you become selfless.. learning the strengths you didn’t know you have and dealing with the fears you didn’t know existed. iba maging nanay mahirap pero napaka sarap. 👩👦✨”
