36-year-old FLY Entertainment artiste Jacqueline wears many hats. She is an actress, host, presenter, teacher, moderator and a corporate facilitator. But perhaps the biggest and most important role of them all is being mum to her two adorable children, Elizabeth (two years) and Charles (nine months).
Why is being a mum fulfilling? "The moments when I’m with my kids, hearing them laugh, giggle or getting up to something silly... and suddenly it hits me, ‘Jacq, how did you get so lucky?’"
The hardest thing about being a mum: "It’s the fear that I'm not a good enough mum. Fear that I’m not educating them well, fear that I've over mothering them, fear when they are sick, the list goes on. No, I’ve yet to overcome it, and I doubt I will ever. That's parenthood isn't it?"
How do you create "me-time": "The elusive ‘me-time’! I enjoy ‘me-time’ when I’m expressing milk for Charlie. But my ultimate ‘me-time’ is when I’m travelling for work. I remember my first work trip. I was so free at night, lying in the hotel room, watching movies and thinking, ‘wait, this cannot be right, there is nothing to do but actually laze?’"
Jacqueline’s Mother’s Day message: "Always enjoy the moments, big and small. Happy Mother’s Day!"
