According to 8List, there are 8 Types of Filipino Moms: (8) The Homemaker, (7) Teleserye Mom, (6) The Rockwell Mom, (5) The Stalker Mom, (4) The Quasi-Soccer Mom, (3) The Famas-Award/Stage Mom, (2) The School Principal, and (1)The Best Tita. I think I’m a mix of all types except for number 7 and 2. According to my husband, I have lost my showbiz powers.
I’m thriving to be a No. 8 and I wish to be the best. Just like my mom.
No. 6 is true because Power Plant is my favorite mall. I don’t do the fitness stuff though just the shopping and the groceries. And we have no car and driver.
I’ll be a good No. 5 because of my expert stalking skills. Thank you to my SEO background. (Lagot ka Noah. Be very afraid.)
Excited to be a No. 4 but I don’t think I could ever surpass what my mother did. (Thank you mommy for always being there!) Pwede rin naman mag-soccer si Noah.
I’m sure with No. 3 but I won’t scream. You’ll just see me always teary-eyed and ready with one or two cameras. I’d probably make Noah his own website. Haha.
No. 2 is tough. I hope to discipline with love and care.
It’s so easy to be a No. 1. Kunsitidora with my nephews and nieces but not with my own child. Hehe.
How about you? What type of Pinoy mom are you?
The world may define mothers and categorize them into groups but one thing I know, being a mom is an important role given to us by the Lord.
Titus 2:4-5 says.
“…and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.”
Being a mother isn’t easy. It has been challenging for me lately but I thank the Lord for sustaining me with His Grace. Madami pa akong kakaining bigas. Pero sana hindi ako tumaba. Hehehe.
