Where did 2017 go? I can’t believe it’s already November.
I like this part of the year, when the weather is cooler, my kids can let loose and I don’t have to wake up at 5.30am to rush them to school!

If you just had a baby, you’ll want to read our article, “So this is Motherhood?” (page 34), where Singapore women share their struggles.
“I cried every day because I felt very helpless and useless. I felt that I could not do anything for my babies,” one mummy shares.
Take heart; you’re not alone. We’ve all been there in one way or another.
Coming from a society that prizes achievement, I felt like a failure as a new mother whenever I couldn’t meet my inflated expectations.
Now that my kids are older – and they’ve turned out just fine – I wonder why I was so hard on myself for so long. What a waste of time and energy!
So, be kind to yourself. Your children love you unconditionally, and that’s all that matters. If you screw up, cry if you need to, forgive yourself, and move on. #hugs
