Lucy: My greatest fear as a mother is my kids turning out to be bad people. As a mom, I’m always on my knees praying for them, that they may grow up to be reputable people in society and follow Godly ways.
Sylvia: What is the one gift you will give to your children that you hope they will cherish dearly for the rest of their life?
Lucy: For them to love their children and families when the right time comes. I won’t let anything or anyone come between me and my kids/family. I will do anything possible to keep them happy. I shower them with love and this is one thing I insist they should give their families as well.
Sylvia: As a working mum, how do you balance between family and career?
Lucy: Striking a balance between work and family can be quite hard, but somehow I manage by making sure if its work I am there at the right time. When it comes to family, I create time for my kids and husband. What I probably don’t have is time for myself since I’m still in those years when my kids need me to be there.
Sylvia: Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
Lucy: My husband. He is one special person in my life. He has been so supportive in everything; loving and taking care of our kids especially during difficult times when I had no house helps and whenever I got home late from work. He helped stay with the kids till I got home. He has sufficiently provided for us, made sure our kids go to good schools among many other things. He is such a blessing.
Sylvia: What motherhood advice would you like to share with fellow moms?
- Learn, understand, take care, guide, love your children and never compare them with others.
- Never compare and compete with other mothers when bringing up kids. Instead, work with what you have.
- Don’t go overboard and pressure yourself with giving your kids a life which you can’t sustain.
- Be yourself but love your children unconditionally.
