Mamma Mia!

Minisha Sarappa 发布

Between child rearing, managing the household, meal planning, and laundry, it can be hard to find time for yourself. Oh, let's not forget a full time job - Yikes

So, you will find that this blog is not just for fashion or your style but also to help and encourage moms. We know that being a working mom can feel like a lonely journey sometimes, even when you know so many others have been in the same place before. There are other resources that can help moms feel less alone along the way.

These real-life moms are sharing their own parenting journeys, from the challenges to the joyful moments that make up modern-day motherhood.❤️


 "Being a young mom with three kids (6, 4 and 3 years old) can be overwhelming and challenging. It can also mean putting our dreams or plans on hold, but overall is one of the greatest responsibilities a woman can have. To raise confident, brave, respectful and humble children especially in the times we are living in now with so much fear and anxiety is so important. One of the lessons I’ve learnt during lockdown is “self care”, it’s so important as a mother and a wife. Without self care I wouldn’t be able to juggle kids, business, home or even maintain relationships with friends and family.

Reading a book in the quiet now and then or soaking in the tub with some candles or one of my favorites, baking! It calms my mind and soul and helps me find peace so that when I’m face with screaming kids or hectic loads of homework or just having a really bad day, I’m able to juggle it all.

Woman are powerful in so many ways. I believe every woman has a purpose on earth and the ability to make difference in society and set an example for our daughters, sisters, nieces and their children, but in order for us to do that we have to “take care” of ourselves first so we have a sound and peaceful mind. I highly recommend a book by Joyce Meyer “Battlefield of the Mind”."

 "I am a women, a wife, a mum of two and a working businesswomen. The day I became a mum was the most exhilarating experience of my life. I just gave birth to a whole human being and it was nothing short of a miracle. Being a mum of one child and still trying to manage a business was one of the hardest things I ever had to do and then adding another baby became even harder. I had to learn time management and how to separate my work from my time with my babies. When my babies wake up in the morning they are the happiest little beings so I make a point of spending time in the mornings and engaging with them. Thankfully, I have been blessed since my baby girl was born, to have a full time helper that lives with us and she is a huge help to me. She takes care of the children in the mornings while I get my work done and that helps me to find a good balance between work life and family life. I also have to give credit to my amazing husband because he is so helpful with the kids and is a real hands on dad. 

Being a women comes with its set of challenges but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love my being a wife, a mom and also having a great ambition for the business arena. We are women and we can do whatever we set our minds to. God has given us this special ability to work out how to wear so many caps and still be awesome at each of one of them. I try not to do too much at one time,I pace myself out so I have time for everything that I need to do within a day. We don’t always have to be superwomen, just be you and do what you love and everything will fall into place."

"I’m a young mom to an almost 10 month old baby girl. While motherhood is HARD, I believe that within every woman’s heart there is capacity to mother in her own way - for some that might mean biological children, for others it’s adoption or foster care and sometimes it’s even loving and caring for the younger generation you’re surrounded by. In all forms of mothering, self care is not just important but it’s vital for survival. I am no expert on self care because I really could be practicing it much more but sometimes, while you’re trying to figure motherhood out (if that’s even possible), something as simple as taking a 20 minute nap can be life changing for the rest of your day or even your week.

It’s also okay to ask for help. If you’re surrounded by family, ask for help when you need it. No one but yourself expects you to have life figured out while trying to raise your child. It takes a village to raise a child and not only because it’s a lot of work but because every person in your circle has something special to add to your child’s life.

Lastly, if you can, connect to a community of moms who are also trying to figure out motherhood. Often, this community will be your saving grace when your baby simply refuses to eat for days on end or when teething is keeping everyone up night after night.

Most importantly, do not judge but instead support other moms. Motherhood is emotional enough without the judgement. We sincerely need to life each other up as women, as mothers ❤️"

 "Women. We are fearfully and wonderfully made to be fearless and wonderful. Balancing our family, home, ministry and work lives is no easy task but we were created for greatness and greatness is not for the weak or faint . We build families, lives, homes and empires and we do it in style. This month as we celebrate Women I salute every woman out there."

I hope this read was helpful and showed you that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Share in the comments any encouragement you may have for other Mamma's out there. 💚

I know its hard Mama 
"I know it can be hard to get up every day and have these little people rely on you.  I know it's hard to feel like sometimes your world is so small.  I want to remind you, you are the world. You are the world that those little ones revolve around. You are the nurture, their home and their comfort. You are everything to them, and I hope even on your hard days you know how special you are. Especially to your little people. "

  • So so true Mini, we try to be strong to keep things stable. However, Juggling life’s situations can take the better of us. It is always a great idea to take some “me time”, keeping in mind that a happy mom/wife will makes a happy home. Thank you Mini it’s nice to know that I am not the only one🌸.

  • Beautiful Mini 🥰 A woman is God’s secret weapon – created with purpose and destiny. She was chosen to bring forth life to this world and she is a preserver and nurturer of life. I pray that every woman out there realizes the potential she carries and the life impartation within her ✨✨✨

  • Motherhood comes with its own struggles but more than the struggles comes the unconditional love and the uncountable joyful moments that makes it all worth. This blog is a great way to give advice and encouragement to all the beautiful moms.
