Today’s guest post is by Mrs. Joanna Santillan.
As the saying goes: “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.” And yes, planning is a big part of the journey to a wonderful vacation. Going out on a holiday with the family is an amazing way to bond and make new memories with them. It’s also worth highlighting that the kids won’t stay young for long. So while they’re still kids, plan a vacation or two. Here’s a list of tips when planning a vacation where everyone will enjoy: Continue reading

Here are my top 10 achievements of the year and all the hard work and the pain I had to go through to make them happen…
Being Mumma wishes a very Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful Mummas who are a part of the fraternity!
With every blog post I upload and every experience I share on Being Mumma, about ‘my’ being a Mumma, in some or the other way I express how special it is to be a Mother.
So, this Mother’s Day I thought of doing the same thing, but a little differently. I pinged all Mummas and requested them to contribute to Being Mumma by sharing their beautiful experiences and feelings as a mother, in few words. I also asked them to support it with a pic, so that all of us here get to see their cutie pies too!
I personally wish to THANK all the Mummas for taking out time to write for Being Mumma and making this Mother’s Day so special for me and all of us!
Here’s what they have to say… Continue reading

Here’s what my post-baby body got me and here’s what you too should get prepared for in case you’re expecting a baby or have just become a mother: Continue reading
No matter how much ever planned and expected your pregnancy is, no matter how much you were dying to give birth to your little one and no matter how much of reading you did to prepare yourself for motherhood, there still are and there will always be a few things that will take you by surprise. Here are the ones I think no one really tells you about motherhood or about being a mother, and the ones I discovered only after I jumped into the boat: Continue reading
If you can stay awake almost all night yet wake up with a smile to the coos and gurgles of your baby, smell your baby’s tush for poop, have a puke on your new t-shirt (and still be okay about it) or have tears of joy in your eyes when your baby tries to make the first effort to roll over – then you are a new mother who has just started the wonderful journey of motherhood.
They say, motherhood is the best adventure you can ever experience as it is more-than-full of surprises. Every day unfolds a new gift of unexpected yet fulfilling events that surprise you with every passing moment. All mothers eventually experience all kind of surprises out of which the top 5 are: Continue reading
