Hello, I’m June and welcome to mamawearpapashirt. I’ve been writing here since early 2011, and it gives me great joy to share my stories of parenthood with other young mums who are on the same journey.
I live in Singapore with the hubs and our two little blessings: Vera, a bubbly four year old and Javier, a curious two year old.
The name mamawearpapashirt was inspired by Vera, who one morning shouted those words in glee, when she saw…yes, her mama wearing her papa’s shirt. How the fact amused her, I can only guess. I was only wearing papa’s shirt because I could hardly fit into my own, my being heavily pregnant at the time with Javier.
To me, the phrase represents not just a funny memory, but is also symbolic of the many shirts that women wear – as wife, mother, worker, housemaker, and so on. (Of course, men wear many shirts too, mainly work-shirt and also play-shirt, but it’s different for a woman, as I’m sure you will agree.)
Through this blog, I hope to share life, love, and all its lessons with other young mums out there, and to be a source of encouragement to them as we plod along the early years of parenthood.
