Weekend Blog Follower Caravan #11

I absolutely loved the idea for the Weekend Blog Follower Caravan#10.  I got to know more of the wonderful people behind the blogs that I follow. And I got to follow new ones too. Now WBFC#11  has started and I am looking forward to meeting new bloggers, discovering new blogs, and of course, visiting the blogs that I love.
If you are here through WBFC, I’m hoping you’d take time to go through my other posts and know more about this tottering mama.

WBFC#9: The Tottering Mama

The Weekend Blog Follower Caravan is back and I wouldn’t want to miss joining it this week!  This week’s caravan is all about getting to know the bloggers behind the great blogs that we visit.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to finally know more about the people behind the inspiring stories we read.

Welcome to my one-and-only blog!  It’s a fairly new blog as I started blogging only this January and have moved from Blogger to WordPress barely a week ago (thanks again to Mommy Rubz!).

I’m Olga to many, Adee to some, Mama to my two toddlers and Gah to my loving husband Hon.  My Hon and I got married 3 years ago and have been blessed with three children.  One of them is our angel. Our little Jake, Jade’s twin sister, went to God’s garden after seven days of life.  Her siblings, Jade and Jakei, continue to make our humble home the happiest place on earth.

I’ve been working as an academic tutor to grade school and high school students for the past 12 years.  This has enabled me to keep the child in me alive as I’ve been spending almost everyday of my life with tweens and teens. It has also sheltered me from the world outside as the kids I tutor come to our house which serves as our informal tutorial center.  So, pardon me if I may seem naive for my age.  I’ve been a child half my life and i’ve been mostly with children the other half of my life.

My husband and I are celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary this month.  The past three years have been one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride.  We’ve had to deal with two unplanned pregnancies, to cope with losing a child, to fight my severe postpartum depression(twice!), and to hurdle countless obstacles in our marriage.  Thank God, we are still together now and still working on making our marriage work to firmly establish our family.

Now, I am a stay at home mom – my toddlers’ 24/7 yaya, cook, playmate, nurse, teacher, and human jungle gym. I still tutor a couple of kids who come to our house after school but my main priority remains being a mama to Jade and Jakei.  I am enjoying my on-the-job training as homemaker and though I still can’t seem to manage running the household fluidly, I find that I am managing it much better now.

I totter. I stumble. I fall. I’m the TOTTERING MAMA.

Still clumsy in the kitchen and prone to botching up lunch and dinner. Still learning how to manage my time better to be more efficient in running the household. Still somewhat unsure whether I’m raising my children well enough; But perfectly certain that I love them more than anything else in the world!
