The biggest event of last week was Mother’s Day! Our feeds were full of mums sharing how their families celebrated the special occasion and how they honoured their own mothers and grandmothers. Here are some of our favourites social media captures.
Fiona Treadwell – @redovalwater
Le hubs: Kids, mommy is awake what must you say to her? Juju: HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! GOOD LUCK TO YOU! TJ & I: good luck??!!! Oh no! That's like bad omen. . As much as they annoy the shit out of me, I love them to bits. The daily convos, the reminiscences of their growing up and doing silly things together. Happy Mother's Day to all of us out there.
Fiona’s Mother’s Day had an interesting start, with her son Julian wishing her good luck! In her post for Mother’s Day, Fiona gets real about how despite the sometimes annoying antics of her children, the love that she has for her little ones always prevails.
Hua Shuying – @themerrymaker
Shuying ended the day with a tribute to her own mummy and her wish this Mother’s Day – that she’ll be as great a mother to her month-old son Liam as her mum was to her.
Gwendolyn Yeo – @gwendolyn_yeo
I love these two a lot! Thx mummy for looking after ah Ma ! Happy Mother's Day ah Ma , happy Mother's Day mummy ! I will be back next week to celebrate with you all ya. Better to be late than never . And happy Mother's Day to all lovely mama ! Spent more time with ur mummy and granny while they are still healthy ! #throwback .
Though she wasn’t able to celebrate on the day itself, Gwendolyn posted a photo with not three, but four generations of women in her family, wishing both her mum and grandmother a Happy Mother’s Day. The photos is definitely one that needs to be archived for the memory books.
Charlotte Kiew – @charlottekiew
Celebrating my first Mother's Day with my little family in advance as our weekends are jam packed with other celebrations just before our flight on Monday morning. Thank u hubby for taking time off to bring me to my favorite tea house for brunch ? and cleaning up one section of the house today which I was truly surprised ? #blessed #descharforeverlove #sgmummy #parenthood #momlife #instadaily #babylove #instababy #igsg
Charlotte celebrated her very first Mother’s Day with tea at Arteastiq, her favourite tea house, with her husband and little Arissa. Hubby even helped with cleaning the house!
Cindy Tan – @lecinlurve
Being a Mother is not about what I've given up to have @chrisellefaithtay but the outpour of love & support I've gained from having her in my life. Life is so much more fulfilling from all the invaluable experiences I've gained from my decision to be a stay-home mum to my 8mth old munchkin. Thanks to the loving team from @mummyfique for the pampering luncheon treat with the most impressionable deco setup. Let's continue to love & support one another through this life-enhancing journey. Thank you for celebrating my 1st with me. ✨? (More visuals of the beautifully decorated venue up on my FB page) #MMFMOTHERSDAY #mummyfique #lecinlurve #1stmothersday
Chriselle may only be eight-months-old, but Cindy’s life has definitely been changed for the better, and she is definitely not regretting her decision to be a stay-at-home mum.
Geraldine Guo – @geraldineguo
Today, my dryer died on me I had to catch the morning sun and make sure the kids' uniform and beddings are out. Then I made pasta and was secretly happy because they love what I cooked. Then, one of the boys puked on the bed because he jumped too much, that's another round in the wash. Changing bedsheets was like a mini workout. And there are those changing of diapers and breaking up fights in between. In fact, today is just like any other day. At our home, everyday is Mother's day (and Father's Day). We do all mundane work but that work matters. One day just doesn't cut for us. Nevertheless, Happy Mother's Day to all mums out there! To the world you might just be one person, but to one person (or 3 in my case) you might just be the world. PS: Photo throwback to 1.5 years ago ❤I love this photo because it depicts the 3 different personalities the boys have. #happymothersday2017
Mother’s Day for Geraldine was just like any other day where things at home go wrong. We love how she commemorated it with a throwback photo of her three boys that best shows the unique personality of each of her children. This must be why they say that mums always know best.
Dr Jade Kua – @drjadekua
Different Folks: Happy Mother's Day, to my Mummy, my mother-in-law and my fellow mummy girlfriends. We may have different mothering techniques but common sense would suggest that's because we have different children and the same things do not work for all of us. Regardless, we love our children unconditionally and that is pretty awesome. After all, that's exactly what the world needs right now, a little more love, tolerance and common sense. Let's continue to support one another even if we are different. #oursonsndaughters #mummyfique#MMFMothersDay#lovemakestheworldgoround #sgmoms#sgmummy#sgmums#momlife#workingmom
Everyone is different, and this is reflected even in the ways that we parent our children. We love Dr Jade Kua’s reminder that we each need to walk our own path in our journeys as mothers, and that loving our children unconditionally is the most important thing.
Ginette Chittick – @ginettechittick
Adorable Luella strikes again, wishing mummy Ginette’s mummy followers a Happy Mother’s Day! Click on the video to watch the greeting.
May Wan – @missmaywan
Everything I am is because of the three of you. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in my Insta family. We are warriors and nothing beats the love of a mother. Missing you on this day @audric77 , Mother's Day is not complete without the father of my children. ❤️ . . . . #mothersday #happymothersday #mom #momlife #love #family #happiness #instagood #instalike #instalove #picoftheday #childhood #childhoodmemories #pixel_kids #uniteinmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #family
As May puts it, raising children isn’t a one-woman job. Dads play an important role, and without her hubby by her side, Mother’s Day doesn’t feel complete.
Michelle Hon – @thechillmom
At 7am, Lauren said to me, "Mummy, if you want your cards and songs now, you HAVE TO wake up!". While I wished for sleeping in and breakfast in bed ("Are you kidding? That's so messy" – said my OCD kids, obviously taking after their dear mummy ?), these heartfelt, handmade cards and bookmark are probably what I'll miss when they're older. Happy Mother's Day, my fellow mummy friends. Happy spending it with the beautiful little ones who call you Mum ❤️
Though Michelle’s Mother’s Day started early in the morning at 7am, her kids made up for it with their handmade cards and presents. These are precious memories that Michelle will keep for a long time to come.
Tjin Lee – @tjinlee
My own #Polo team! Big smiles & Big ponies! The boys were a real handful today, and we had an extremely difficult day with them. Motherhood isn't all fun and games (don't believe what you see on social media!). There have been bad days, when I wish I could break down and cry like a 2 year old. Mothering is the hardest thing I have ever had to do (running a company is much less challenging!) but also the loveliest, and most meaningful. Cherish the small moments, hold your little one in your lap for as long as they'll let you – they're only babies for such a little while. Happy Mother's Day #momlife #motherhood #mothersday #poloralphlauren
Motherhood isn’t always a walk in the park and according to Tjin, even running a company is less challenging! But it is the most meaningful thing a mother can do, so cherish the precious moments.
Winnie Chan – @the_paperqueen
No matter how old you get, your mum will always be there for you. Winnie reflects on how amazing her mum is in this Instagram post.
