THE TOTTERING MAMA
I am a wife by choice, a mother by God’s design, and an academic tutor and freelance writer by profession. Blessed with three wonderful children, I am also a teacher, cook, nurse, playmate, and human jungle gym to two of them – two because one of our daughters is now an angel in heaven. As with all mothers who have lost a child, I shall forever long for my daughter who went to God’s garden too soon. And as with all mothers who are raising young children, I shall perennially be praying that I be able to raise responsible, loving, and Christ-centered individuals.
I’ve stumbled, and will stumble, numerous times in my journey as a mother. But with each fall, I get up with a new battle scar, ready to face the challenges and to embrace the joys that motherhood brings. You see, I am far from perfect and perhaps am even the most insecure mother that you’d ever meet. Though I am wanting in so many aspects of parenthood, I always do strive to be the best mother I can be to my two precocious children.
We have only one shot at parenting our children – let’s give it our best shot. I’m The Tottering Mama, join me as I teeter-totter in my journey as a mother.
