What Motherhood Has Taught Me So Far

Now two years into motherhood and looking back at all the things I’ve done, I can’t help but be proud of myself.

Despite my lack of experience, maturity, and even maternal instincts, I was able to survive the first overwhelming year of motherhood and now still continue to kick motherhood in the ass! (My toddler would probably disagree; it’s he who kicks me in the ass most days now. haha)

And while I’m not done yet, probably never will be done, with motherhood, I’ve sure picked up a couple of lessons along my journey.

Letters to my Little Lion #1: Lessons from the Brangelina Breakup

At 1 year and 10 months old, I know you will never understand or care about the strange national mourning over Brangelina’s divorce, much less know how to say their name right. (Right now, dinosaurs and the alphabet are what’s keeping you busy.) But I think their relationship is a great source material for real talk or also known as “inspiring nuggets of wisdom your mom will share, which you will probably not understand now but will surely thank me for later.”

So what can we learn from the breakup of these two beautiful strangers?

Introducing a New Blog Series: Letters to My Little Lion

Part of the reason I wanted to start my own blog was to give my son and future descendants a glimpse of me as a person – in case, you know, I don’t survive the zombie apocalypse or contract the deadly flu, and thus, be unable to teach my posterity the rules to living a good life.

Such morbid thoughts and a movie marathon of Korean films have led me to create a blog series dedicated to my son, which I shall call “Letters to My Little Lion.”
