Motherhood is no joke. In fact, I don’t think there is anything harder than handling a toddler; but I’m told – teenagers are actually worse once they hit puberty and high on unnecessary hormones!
Anyway Singer Avril recently held a candid interview with one Ala C; where she opened up about her school life, growing up in Nakuru, music journey and finally – the hardest of them all – Motherhood!
Although many assume motherhood is easy to cope up with; truth is its actually harder than a 9 to 5 routine job. And thanks to Avril’s latest interview; she actually explains this better. Speaking her experience Nyambura said;
Pressure, and stress, You should respect mothers. When my son was a day old its when it hit me that I no longer had a say.
Adding that motherhood needs selflessness saying;
It would always be about him as he now fully depends on me. In the beginning, I was a walking zombie because I could not get enough sleep. Even now I still survive on very little sleep as I also have to chase my dream.
Balancing motherhood and work can be confusing and it’s easy to become depressed as one learns on the job.
Decision to embark on motherhood journey
Although Avril prefers keeping her private life off social media; the singer for the first time shared a little information on why she chose motherhood over her career saying;
I was very ready to be a mum. I HAD BEEN READY 5 years before I became one.
But I never had someone stable in my life. I wanted someone stable in my life so we take care of the child together. So when the person I am dating came into my life the situation felt right and he also wanted it.’
