I didn’t have to wait for a full five minutes, the moment the fluid soaked the paper stripes, two solid lines appear – I’m gonna be a mom!
I was filled with excitement, and a new kind of emotion that suddenly made my heart miss a beat.
You see, there’s two sides of being pregnant every time, as aside from looking forward to the new member of the family, something morphed inside me that I know I will never be the same again.
I tried to contained it ever since, but the monster grew in a substantial form, and I called it, Fear of the Future.
It’s a real thing, and some times, the paranoia this monster is creating is very surreal, it used to kept me up all night.
Once a Mom, Forever a Mom
There’s no such thing as working moms and staying-at-home moms; because all women, when become mothers are working moms – 24/7, no break-time, no SL, no VL, no resigning. It may feel like a tiresome responsibility and it is, but you won’t understand the sweet rewards (wet kisses, sticky hugs among others) when you’re not yet a mother – I’ve been there, and I’ve done that so you are forgiven. Good thing the spaghetti-wired brains make dovetailing aka multitasking a breeze; and obviously, worrying about the future is one of the things moms
freak think about on top of keeping the house out of fire, making sure that the kids are still alive and that you still got ample time to finish a project or pay the bills before the due date!
Did you know? Chronophobia is the persistent and often irrational fear of the future or the fear of passing time.
Worrying about the future can even pose risk of post-par tum depression to some moms, the future is an unknown water afterall. That’s where this “Dream came true” as Ms. Janice of Mommy Mundo described this partnership with Sun Life come in, it’s a piece of security moms can count on.

Moms never leave anything by chance.
We always keep on reminding our loved ones on important matters things, mothers are usually tagged as naggers – and I’m telling it in a good way. I used to like how my mom is so kulit whenever I tell her I have to go. If I got my wallet, handkerchief, phone, umbrella and house keys with me and I will tell her yes. And so on and so forth until I had to really stop her or I’m gonna be late – and I was in college.
Moms never leave anything by chance. So, do not leave anything by chance, protect the ones you love with life insurance and if this is your first time to consider insurances, having Mommy Mundo’s Sun Life’s PA TXT Card is one foot forward at the door.
PA TXT Card
Half a decade later, I still got that weird sense of fear, it won’t completely disappear. Sometimes, its there floating somewhere inside my head, but sometimes it faces me. I learned to make it manageable though; attack it from its weak point and I got another weapon to help me battle this fear aside from buckets of containing hazard and having a relatively safe environment – the PA Txt Card.
