A mom is a real mom only when she does all those things as mentioned below. To be considered a real mother, she must do all these.
Qualities of A Mother
Romantic dinners, accessories, chats, and salon visits don't interest you now; the only thing that concerns you is the care and safety of your kid. Now, you prefer to invest your time and efforts nurturing the child. It's the time when you rarely get time for yourself and your spouse, when the mere cry of your baby worries you and leaving your chores incomplete, you run towards the baby to check out what's going on! You end up spending most of the time with the baby while the rest (when the kid is asleep) is spent completing the undone chores. Sacrificing your likes and adjusting between baby care and household responsibilities, makes you a real mother. What more? If you notice below mentioned changes in your tastes and roles, then you are truly the real mom!
- Instead of those luxurious perfumes and deodorants, you now like the smell of kids' toiletries, milk, and apple juice.
- You remain in same old clothes but try to buy new ones for the kid.
- Instead of beauty tips, the suggestions of handling children interest you now.
- Film songs are now replaced by children poems and stories.
