This is what really happens during maternity leave, Princess Abante shares
It’s far from having a vacation.
Manila Councilor Princess Abante-Barquia may have taken time off work after giving birth to her second son, but that doesn’t mean that her days have been breezy.
It’s actually the opposite, as the politiko reveals the struggles of motherhood. Abante shared in detail how she barely has time for herself, as her kids appear to be taking turns needing her care and attention.
When one sleeps, the other boy needs her.

Today’s scene: Isaac finally sleeps at 8am after an all nighter of feeding-pooping-crying. Irah wakes up. After several minutes and a lot of suggestions, Irah wants to play downstairs with Ate Jessica. Isaac wants to feed again. By the time Isaac settles down, Irah comes back wanting to cuddle before taking his nap. Irah sleeps, Isaac is hungry again and needs another diaper change. Now, they’re both sleeping and I’m still awake. I thought maternity leave is for mommies to get some rest. Hahahaha 🙂 #SamuelIrahAbanteBarquiaIII #BenIsaacAbanteBarquia
“I thought maternity leave is for mommies to get some rest. Hahahaha,” she said.
