Over the years from 1997 up to the year 2014, the number of stay-at-home moms declined!

Isn’t it ironic that the stay-at-home Moms declined and those stay-at-home fathers rise up!


I mean usually kasi diba, ang mga ama ang wala sa bahay at laging nanay ang naiiwan.


that’s how our culture and life works as a mother,


but that is before!


So the big question is, what happens to those number of Moms who are already not a “stay-at-home mother” san na sila napunta?


 Well, one of the answers is that they are probably working!


According to the “working Mother statistics” of Statistics Brain, 61% of moms work out of their home and in the country of Sweden, there are 76% of working Moms, same us in united states with 61%  if working Moms.


Another example, the pie graph below shows the percentage of working moms increasing over the year of 1997 and 2012. The graph is from the PewResearch Center Social and Demographic Trends. 


And I know, here in our country, the Philippines we also have a large number of working moms.


So in this kind of dilemma of us being a mother and a worker at the same time, what may be the reason behind this?


I mean, of course, we do love our family! th

ere's no question on that but there must be reasons for us to take the risk of working while being a mother to our family.


And one of the main reason is that we the mothers, want to provide for our family!


Well yes, maybe that work is for our husband or our partner in life, but still, there are times that we needed to help them provide cause maybe our family needs more, and a one person to provide is not enough.


Just like me and my husband, he is working in Dubai for years and I am here in the Philippines with our children doing some business to provide our needs.


My husband can provide for us, but the thing is aside from only helping him I also want to work for my passion, for my satisfaction,


and that is also one of the reasons why we became working Moms.


because we need to be satisfied, hindi naman sa hindi tayo kontento sa pagiging Ina,


but I believe naman na we always have that fire in our hearts that desire working on our passion.


And that my dear, is what drives us to be a working Mom.



So, as we can see, the number of working Moms increase over time than the stay-at-home Moms, well, of course, we all know naman that there are benefits din if you are a stay-at-home Mom, you can focus more on your family, you can take care of them so much more than a working Moms can do.


But still being a working Mom also helps a mother provide for their family needs and explore on their working fields. Pero syempre it still depends on the situation of the mothers themselves, it will depend on their decision and perception in which they can serve better as a Mommy.


After all, what matters the most naman is that you are still a Mother.


Either a working mom, stay-at-home Mom or whatever! 


Still, you are a Mom, that’s what still counts at the end of the day! right?

The greatest and loudest shout-out to all the mothers out there!!  to the entire woman like me! Those who strive really hard for their families! Those who lend all their time, effort and all of their selves being a mother! Those who are so caring, so patient and so loving! 

Sa mga Ilaw ng tahanang patuloy na nagbibigay liwanag kahit gaano pa kadilim! To those “dakilang Ina” of all times!



I have a big and really awesome and wonderful news for all of us! 

You know what? 

We! The Mothers, nothing less, nothing more! 

 We Deserve the highest honor in this world! 

We deserve the greatest award of all times! 

We deserve the biggest "THANK YOU" Of everyone! 

It is the highest, the greatest and the biggest of all things that are what we deserved!

Why? Ay mali! “Why” is not even a question for this! 


So if you're asking if it is not, then what? Well, to tell you the truth “what” is not the question either, the real question here is “how” not “why” neither “what” 

it is definitely “how” do we, the mothers deserve the highest honor, the greatest award and the biggest “thank you” in this world? 

 Recently I’ve been watching a really awesome movie "the Bad Moms"

 I’m sure you can relate too! 

Why? Because the movie is all about us! 

 It is about how the mothers like us struggled every day! 

How we face all those struggles and hardships and how we deserve the highest, the greatest and the biggest! 

 I’ll give you a little insight, but It is much better if you will watch it all by yourself. So the movie talks about how the everyday life of a Mom goes by, how she does everything all by herself, as in all of the things all by herself! She does the breakfast, send her kids to school with their home made lunch, then she goes to work, attends PTA meetings on school, do her kid’s project and home works and so on and so forth! 

But the thing is, still! 

After all things she does, after all those times she would eat at her car, be late at meetings and be a mother with no time out! Not even a minute break, nor a second, 

She is still being judged as a Bad Mother! 

Is it funny? After doing all that we can do to be the best Mom! To be the Good as ever Mother! 

Still, it isn’t enough! That’s how this mainstream of a “Perfect Mom” goes by! Not only in the movie! It is happening here! In the reality! Have you experienced that?



 Sabi nga sa isang famous line ni Vilma Santos sa pelikulang “Anak”,-“Bakit ang ama, makapag-trabaho lang sya at maibigay ang pangangailangan ng anak mabuti na sa paningin ng iba?

 Pero bakit ang ina ginawa mo ng lahat nagpakapagod

ka, masama parin sa paningin ng iba?

 That’s true! Diba? Especially nowadays, 

the dilemma of being a mother is a “perfect one”. Mothers should be perfect in their eyes! Kailangan nating maging perpektong Ina sa paningin nila, that is when they will say we are a good mom! 

Which is in reality that “perfect Mom” doesn't even exist! There is no such a perfect Mother! 

 It is because there is no particular measurement of being a mother, it can’t be measured by the things we can give to our family,! 

It can’t be measured by the way we manage anything, it can’t be measured by how we start the day and end it still as a mother, 

it can’t be measured by how others see us doing our responsibilities in our own ways!

 It cannot be measured by even how hard we work, how hard we strive and how hard we sacrifice ourselves! 

Hindi nasusukat ang pagiging nanay natin sa lakit na ano! 

Cause only us! Will understand how much we can give as a mother! Kaya if you will ask me again how do we! The Mothers, deserve the highest, the greatest and the biggest?


It is because we are IMMEASURABLE!

No one can ever say how far we can go being a mother!

 How much we can give being a mother! 

And how come we can be anyone and anything being a mother! 

Hindi tayo katulad ng mga taong binibigyang parangal kasi sya ang pinaka mahusay sa ganito ganyan.

We are not like anyone who is highly respected kasi president sya nito at dito, We are not like those people who’s receiving the biggest thank you kasi ganito at ganyan! 

No! we are no like them! We deserve the highest honor, the greatest award, and the biggest thank you because we are immeasurable!



The dilemma of a mother is absolutely and definitely immeasurable!

Kaya to all those mothers out there! CONGRATULATIONS! You deserve all the highest, the greatest and the biggest of all things! We honor you, we appreciate you! And we thank you!

Ones you are bound into the life of “motherhood” you can never hold back! There is no exit and there is no escape! Sabi nga “hindi ito parang mainit na kanin na kapag isinubo mo basta basta,  iluluwa mo na lang kapag napaso ka” oh well yes I know maybe that line is for the marriage but mind you! It is also related to us! The Moms, nanay, Ina, Mother or mudra! Being a mother will never be easy! hindi natin to bast basta mailuluwa, once we enter it? we are already chained by the consequences and of course, the price! pero there is no such thing as “easy” in this world of being a “mother” why?
