Mommy Trumps Ironman

It's my first Mother's Day celebration as a mom. Now that I am a mother myself, I propose that Mother's Day be declared a special non-working holiday nationwide. In the alternative, and to be fair to stay-at-home and self-employed moms, all mothers should be given cash prizes by the government today. This is for all the work we put in, in raising God-fearing human beings who contribute to society and whose giggles make all adult problems go away.

Today we remember that moms carry our babies in their wombs for 9 excruciating months. They put their lives on the line when giving birth. They wake up every two hours to feed our babies and take care of their needs. They do this even when, like our dads, our moms still have to go to work the next day to earn a living. Motherhood is a difficult job, for which we receive no additional pay and from which we can neither take leave nor resign. So to all the moms out there, thank you!


In the words of our handyman Kuya Greg, "Happy Mother Day" to you!
