New to the party of motherhood, Melanie Yoovidhya — mother of adorable baby Sherlyne — shares the joys of being a mum, her hopes for her child’s future, and a mother’s selfless, unconditional love.
With Thai Mother’s Day ringing in, now marks the perfect time to take a minute and appreciate our mothers — for all the big little things they’ve done in making us who we are today. As August 12 approaches, and the country gets ready to celebrate the most important woman in our lives, we spoke to Melanie Yoovidhya — vice president of Breguet — who recently gave birth to adorable two-month old Sherlyne. Here are her views on being a new mum, as well as the endless love she has for her child. Happy Mother’s Day!
What do you think it means to be a mother?
Being a mother means life isn’t just about me anymore. It is to sacrifice not only my time, but my life, with endless love and selflessness.
Do you have any expectations as a mum?
I hope my child realises that my love is endless, seamless, selfless, and unconditional.
What’s your bond like right now?
It’s about trust and love. Whenever she needs me, I’ll always be there, no matter how old she will be.
Have you spotted any similarities between the two of you?
We have the same smile!
What values do you hope to pass on?
Be positive, and be kind to others. Treat people the way you want them to treat you. Live in the moment, and be happy.
What is the most treasured gift you’ve received?
The most precious gift I’ve received from my child is so simple — joy on her face, just her simple smile.
