Kenyan artiste Avril Nyambura has shared her motherhood journey saying it’s the best thing that happened to her as it’s given her a purpose.
The mother of one says she had for so long wanted to be a mother and now she is living that dream.
Speaking during an interview with Ala C, she said
‘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.’
On how it’s been being a working mum, Avril said
Pressure, and stress, You should respect mothers.
When my son was a day old is when it hit me that I no longer had a say.
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.
I used to make money and did everything I wanted but now my child has given me a purpose.
I have become more responsible.
The love for him is unconditional, It’s a feeling you can’t understand.
Avril’s son is now three years.
