64. Motherhood by Rayane Hamdache

1. Please introduce yourself: Name, what do you do & how many children you have.

My name is Rayane Hamdache, I am 27 years old married and mom of two boys, Bassam 2 years and Omar 3 months
I have a bachelor degree in social work from university of saint Joseph but when I got married I quit my job and went to live in Ghana.. Now I am in Lebanon for my treatment.

2. What was your inspiration behind your Instagram account @breastfriends-lb?

I started my Instagram account “breastfriends-lb” after 2 months of being diagnosed, and there were many reasons that pushed me to do it. The main one is that until today there are people who treat cancer as a whisper word. I never knew that I wasn’t supposed to talk about cancer. Many people diagnosed with breast cancer are often under pressure to shut up about it and I met many who were told that cancer should be private and no one has to know about it. There is a somehow a shame connecting to cancer and I wanted to break this rule. Cancer is a disease why are we treating it as a taboo in our society? Why  should I feel ashamed if I have cancer? Or if I will loose  my hair and eyebrows? So I decided to break the silence rule because there is much good in talking openly about cancer such as awareness, prevention, and mainly SUPPORT. We may save a life!

3. How do you manage to juggle your life balance as a mother?

With the chemotherapy treatment and my kids it was hard to manage at first. I went through really hard days after the treatment I felt extremely tiered that  it makes it really hard for me to take care of the kids. I thank God I have my mother by my side who is able to help  me a lot with the kids when I feel tired. And when i feel better I try my best to make it up for them.

 

4. What top tips would you give to any mum on starting her own business?

To any mum starting her business i tell her to : do it from her heart and that in every work there is ups and downs but never give up always try to make the best of your work by trying different managing ideas.

5. What do you love most about Lebanon and do you have a favourite spot with your children?

I simply love Lebanon and especially my city Tripoli, where my home is, my family, the people I love where I feel safe where I love watching my kids grow up in the same village as me.

6. How do you define quality ‘me-time’?

When I am feeling really stressed out, and need some quality “me time” I try to take a small break from the home, family, kids… to take care of myself and have a “Me time”
-I take a bath to relax
-I go for a walk
-I go shopping which is the best kind of therapy for me
-If I am staying home and the kids are taking a nap I grab a book with a hot coffee and enjoy reading it.
It is the small things that help you relax and boost your energy to continue all the stressful times I am living with it now.

7. I am a Mum and…

I am a mum and i love my kids so much that they are the reason of the strong women i am now, i am fighting for them so when they grow up they will be proud of their mama and learn to never lose hope if a life is sometimes hard on us.


8. What is your favourite & least favourite thing about parenthood?

When I think about what I love most about being a parent, so many things come to mind. I love every little milestone.
– Watching my kids grow
– My kids are my pure joy: whenever I look at them I feel happy, I smile, I forget that I am sick and under chemotherapy
– They give me the courage to face and conquer all my fears so that I can allow them to see that no matter the difficulty, they can accomplish what they want.

The least favorite things about parenting are:

–   The exhaustion of total care for an infant. You are their everything.

The exhaustion of keeping up with a toddler. You are the best mommy and/or daddy, ever.

The exhaustion of teaching a wide-eyed kid. You are idolized, they want to be like you when older.

Its all about the exhaustion😂 but no one is perfect I am not the super mommy especially now but I am trying my best.

9. Given we are all about embracing Motherhood, what advice would you give a first time Mum?

My advice for a first time mom is take it easy, motherhood is messy, challenging, sleepless and giving but it is unbelievably beautiful. Don’t worry too much, and don’t try to be the super perfect mom because moms are humans and humans are not perfect.
And never blame yourself if your kid did something wrong it is not because you are a bad mom it s because it happens no one is perfect. Do what u feel like doing, listen to yourself only and never compared yourself with another new mom.

 


63. Motherhood by Souad Habka Jabre

Interview 63

  1. Please introduce yourself: Name, what do you do & how many children you have.

My name is Souad Habka Jabre I am a journalist and I currently work at MBC for a medical Lifestyle show called green apple. I have two kids, Sherif 3 years old and Gloria 4 months’ old

  1. What is your biggest accomplishment in life?

I consider having kids at a young age is my biggest accomplishment in life. I was 23 when I first held Sherif in my arm. I remember people asking me are you ready to become a mum? There is no book or class out there to prepare you for the adventures you are about to endure as a parent. You will never be ready until they give you the baby. Suddenly the things that may have seemed so “big” before shrink down and we realize what truly matters. It taught me more about myself than I ever thought I needed to know.

3. I am a Mum and… 

I still enjoy life. Yes, it does take a lot more planning. You need to schedule your date nights and time with friends in advance but being a mother doesn’t mean you’re stuck at home watching a DVD .Although sometimes when you’re exhausted, that’s all what you’ll want to do.

4.Who inspires you and why?

My Husband… My inspiration. My mind used to get pretty active and I often used to spend useless time worrying about things. Not Marwan, He repeatedly chooses happiness over worry and it inspires me every time he does it. We all have moments where we get in our heads. These times when you with self-doubt everything. We second-guess our talents, our actions, our this, our that. When I do that He takes the doubt and washes it away and reminds me that I am great just the way I am. Not to mention  the HUGE support he gives me with raising the kids in order not to feel overwhelmed with my work pressure. I’m blessed to have him as husband and I’m sure that my kids will be proud of him.

  1. Given we are all about embracing Motherhood, what advice would you give a first time Mum?

There are times where you feel overwhelmed and worried, but it’s a learning process. Motherly duties and tasks become second nature.

  1. Tell us something people don’t know about you.

I still can’t get over my C section scar especially that a surgery wasn’t a choice for me. I’m teaching myself to accept it and remember what a beautiful princess it brought me and I’m sure that with time I will laugh while reading this interview again.

  1. What has been your biggest parenting challenge you had to face with so far?

Sickness. I still can’t get over the situation of seeing my children shaking in bed because of the fever. I hardly try to use all my patience skills but I end up scanning their fever for 30 times in10 minutes just to see if it’s cooling down. Suddenly seeing a 37.0C is all what I want in this world.

  1. How do you juggle work, life balance?

Being a working mother does mean that you don’t spend as much time as you wish with your child. I’m not going to lie. Having to care for another person makes it a lot more difficult to do things for yourself and you have to make a lot of sacrifices concerning your work and the growth of your career. I prepared myself to the idea that my career growth will slow down the coming years and my income will be affected. It was okay for me as long as I don’t become the mother who sees her children for one hour a day and I can still practice my lifetime passion of being a journalist. However, becoming a parent gave me motivation no one can understandIt taught me to organize my time. At the end of the day, you want to be a better person so your child can have all he or she needs, so you work ten times harder to get where you want to be. The most important thing is not to get used to work and to be far from them… it can become a habit… And this habit can kill your special relation with your kids. Your children should be your very first priority and not your work. Our kids need us especially in their first years. Yes quality time is important but it’s not everything. We need to know their needs, what is happening with them on daily basis, what make them happy, sad, scared, and worried. What they are eating, their favorite games, invite their best friends, take them to play dates… we need to sculpt their personality and no one can do it better than a Mother.

  1. What are your passions in life and hobbies and do you still make time for them now that you are a Mother?

Writing and travelling. Writing doesn’t need any specific space or time and my work includes a lot of challenges in terms of scripts writings so I still enjoy it every day in my life. Travelling…I went to 7 times per year to barely 1 or even 0. My choices of destinations now are different and I can’t allow myself to take a lot of risks and to be far from my kids for a longtime.

  1. Finally, what do you love most about Mums in Beirut?

Its REAL talk. There are plenty of blogs and website where family expert and life coaches bombard you with studies and tells you how you should raise your kids, how to be the perfect mother but it can be sometimes so unreal and unpractical. Every time I read an interview on mumsinbeirut I feel like someone is talking about me, other times very different from me, but each time it inspires me effortlessly.

4. Who inspires you and why?

My mother is the person who inspires me the most. She always puts us first, and gives me and my brother all the support. She’s a working woman, she runs her house , takes care of her grand children and makes it all look so easy!

5. Given we are all about embracing Motherhood, what advice would you give a first time Mum?

There’s no perfect way of doing things and there’s certainly no such thing as a perfect parent. Just follow your intuition, and enjoy every moment with your baby.

6. Tell us something people don’t know about you.

Although I’m a calm person, sometimes I can be really crazy.

7. What has been your biggest parenting challenge you had to face with so far?

It was really hard for me to overcome that constant worrying about my child.

8. What is your favourite & least favourite thing about motherhood?

My favorite thing is when my son looks up at me and says the word “mum”

My least favorite thing is the constant interruption by my son. So I feel like I’m half doing hundreds of things every day and never really finishing much.

9. What are your passions in life and hobbies and do you still make time for them now that you are a Mother?

I love travelling and playing tennis and I try to make time for them even on irregular basis.

I love how we have a platform where mums can share their experience which can be inspiring for others in the same community.

2. What is your biggest accomplishment in life?

3. I am a Mum and…
I have my shortcomings but I’m having the time of my life.
4. Who inspires you and why?
A lot of people inspire me in different ways when it comes to being fit, active, eating right, how they cook or bake… but when it comes to motherhood… In a total self love manner… I inspire me! I’m not perfect but I am fully dedicated to being a mother to my monkeys.
5. Given we are all about embracing Motherhood, what advice would you give a first time Mum?
Trust your instinct. No one knows your baby better than you do. I mean No One.

I love driving fast cars. More so in stilettos.

My favorite part is I have the best side kicks. I can be a monkey with them and no one looks at me like I’m weird. Well some people do but those people are weird themselves.
My least favorite part is constantly worrying about the psychological well being of my kids. I always feel like I must be doing something wrong.
9. What are your passions in life and hobbies and do you still make time for them now that you are a Mother?
Art. It has always been art. And yes I make time for it but differently. I used to have 2 big boxes for arts and crafts stuff. I used to make things with the kids from Alien helmets to collages to glitter glue masterpieces. All the artwork around our home in both Kuwait and Dubai was their work. I never hung a single thing that was not made by them. Now that we have moved back to Lebanon, I’m slowly starting to reassemble an arts and crafts drawer. I have even found my charcoal drawings from university, drawing board, charcoal, oil pastels, drawing pencils and lots of paper. We have set up the drawing board on the balcony and the kids have been bursting with creativity.
10. Finally, what do you love most about Mums in Beirut and why?
Some of your posts have made me laugh, some have made me go “ah I’m not alone”, some have made me think “I should try making/doing that” and some have made me bawl my eyes out because they are so true. Thank you for keeping it real. xo

57. Motherhood by Asmaa Khayat Chayah,

Interview 57

1. Please introduce yourself: Name, what do you do & how many children you have.  

Asmaa Khayat Chayah, a speech and language pathologist in action. I have my own private clinic where I work with patients covering almost all ages from childhood up to 70 years old, on one to one basis. I’m also the learning support center coordinator for the preschool and elementary department at Makassed Hussam Eddine Hariri High school.

I have an 8 month old baby, Ayden!

2. What is your biggest accomplishment in life?

Being a mother is simply the biggest achievement of my life. It has taken me on an unexpected journey that can constantly surprise, educate and confuse me! The emotional connection I feel towards my son brings boundless joy. Each moment of every day is filled with different energies, activities, feelings and a lot of comedy.

3. I am a Mum and…

I am a Mum, a wife and a lifelong learner.

 4. Who inspires you and why?

Well, my life goes around two persons in my life. My mom and my husband. They are both my source of inspiration and power.

When I look at my mother, I see an ordinary person, but when I think about what she does and how she does it, she becomes divine and the reason of my smile! 

The experience of my life so far has truly brought things into perspective. My mother has taught me that hard times can be overcome and that lost battles can be won. She has taught me more than I could have learnt from any book. 

She sets an inspirational example to me teaching me how to live life and make wise choices, even in the most uncertain situations.

I respect her a lot. She is my inspiration, my role model.

My husband, in his turn inspires me in another way; he is the best listener I’ve ever met. Sometimes, I get super hyper, and I need someone to talk to, someone who can hear me out. Rami, my husband, is usually that guy. The ever-patient listener, he reminds me how important and amazing it feels when someone truly listens to you.

Whenever I ask him about difficult things he’s been through and how he got through them, he always reminds me that when times are tough, that means that something even better is on its way, “Everything happens for those who wait”, he said.

There’s something incredibly healing about getting the chance to confide in someone who is fully present with you as you put the puzzle pieces of your life together. Rami reminds me of what’s important in life when I lose my way. He is my only best friend. He helps me consider new perspectives and inspires me to be a better person by the way he looks at life, the way he treats himself and the way he interacts with our son and others every day. I trust him completely, because I know that he values me. I admire his intelligence and integrity. I respect the man that he is.

 

5. Given we are all about embracing Motherhood, what advice would you give a first time Mum?

Motherhood is incredible, and the best job I’ve ever had, but if you don’t have a hobby then you are going to get burnt out pretty fast. My job is the thing that I love to do, and it helps challenge me and help me to always be learning. Of course motherhood does that too, but I can’t tell you how helpful it is to have a hobby or a job or something else that you love to do. It’s good for your sanity to have something that is “your thing” and I strongly suggest figuring out what that is.

6. Tell us something people don’t know about you.

Two main things honestly; I love fashion, obviously, and who doesn’t? But “Fashion police” is my preferred game while surfing the bloggers’ accounts on social media. Rami, my husband, discovered this talent in me by the way. Another completely different thing is that I love to imitate cartoon characters’ sounds, especially Sindibad and I’m very good in it. My dream is to put my voice on a certain character in the future.

7. What has been your biggest parenting challenge you had to face with so far?

One of the biggest parenting challenges I had to face so far is getting into a routine with a new baby, especially with 2 jobs, daily homework chores (cooking, supervising the maid, etc…) and a husband .

I have tried out a few different routines with my baby before I found what worked best, but the benefits are well worth the effort.

My advice here is to always try new strategies until you stick to a routine; this way both of you will be happy and comforted knowing what to expect each day.

8. What is your favourite & least favourite thing about motherhood?

Well, lots of things, mostly it is the unconditional LOVE I get from my son every day; the way he smiles at me and looks into my eyes from the very first time, and lately the way he gets upset when I’m not around. Ayden is the purer, more innocent version of myself and my husband.

The least favorite thing about motherhood is the big responsibility of making decisions about giving medications which I am lucky to be sharing it with my husband.

 9. What are your passions in life and hobbies and do you still make time for them now that you are a Mother? 

I never stick to one activity, but I am an outgoing person. I love outdoor activities, travelling and all kind of sports. On the other hand, I love to spend some alone-time at home drawing or painting on canvas. I have as well a passion for cooking. Actually, it is my hobby. I discovered it after I got married. For this and of course after he got to try my food, my husband has encouraged me to create a cooking instagram account and a food blog to post everything I do and so I did and named it “La cuisine de Asmaa”.

Unfortunately, I didn’t keep up updating it because of my full schedule; I realized that it really needs a full time job posting the recipes and taking professional picture and posting them on social media but I still cook very yummy and original recipes.

 

10. Finally, happiness is….

I think of happiness as three things: enjoyment, satisfaction, and fulfillment. Mothering and a supportive husband can give us any of those at any given moment, if not necessarily all of them at the same time!

The ups and downs of motherhood come hand in hand, like waking up in the middle of the night, but knowing that your child will have a better night’s sleep because of the cuddles that took their nightmare fears away. And when it comes to those things, I wouldn’t trade for the world.

  1. What are your passions in life and hobbies and do you still make time for them now that you are a Mother?

I love working out, and now that my elder two are at school and nursery I make the time twice a week before or after mom duties. Sometimes the kids join me for seaside walks, it’s a great way to keep them moving and active.
