‘ I would cry… I feel sad seeing her, the way she is now. But I control my emotions. I push myself forward so that I can help my girl move forward…. I do not want myself or my girl to be overcome by self-pity.‘ Janie Siah on how her daughter lost her leg to Osteosarcoma.
‘”But it can’t be helped,” she said, trying to hide the disappointment in her tone. ” That’s life of a working mum. Too bad. ” Or is it? Ruth Wan-Lau searched hard and redefined her own role.

‘ My gift is not working in the kitchen, it’s eating what comes out of it!’ Quips Dawn Yip when she made the decision to wean off from her live-in domestic helper of over 10years. She shares on her struggles to manage her business and family of 3 tween kids.
These are just the tip of the iceberg extracts from the 21 inspiring and realistic parenthood struggles of our very own Singaporean Mothers.
From 1-21 years old children, the bread and butter issues of Primary Schoolers, tuition or not, to the heart wrenching moments of deaths and sweet victories of love reigning. This book was an unexpected trove of encouragement and motivation to me in my mothering. Thanks to Christy Wong whom I had the privilege of befriending and was blessed to receive this book in a Christmas gift exchange party. Christy from Kids R Simple is also one of the contributors of this book. She shares on how she copes as a Full Time Working Mum with 3 kids without a domestic helper at that time. Pop over her blog to discover how she manages her time connecting with her children in the midst of her heavy schedule.
