Mother – Yours truly forever

It is not enough to love a child. Children need so much more. Mother – Yours truly forever is a beautiful creation of God. We can’t compare her to anyone.

Children require boundaries and consistency. They require quiet, tender moments, as well as memories filled with excitement and inspiration. Children need almost endless understanding and patience, yet they sometimes need strong encouragement or maybe even a push, as a mother bird would push her baby out of the nest to show him he really can fly.

Mothers need to be sensitive, yet, not take it too personally when their child says something like “I wish I had a different mom.” Mothers need to show strength when their child is hurt or frightened, so their child will know everything will be OK. Mothers need to be selfless, putting their child first as they tend to their child’s physical or emotional needs.

“Once you become a mother, you no longer live your life for yourself, because once you become a mother everything changes. Schedules change. Relationships change. The things which were once important change. Life is changed, forever. I believe that life has been changed for good.”

You

There is no comparison to you. God made no mistake when He placed your child under your care. I have discovered over the years that mothering isn’t about the big issues: breast vs. bottle, to circumcise, or not, cry-it-out or never sleep again… No, the things that matter most are the little things, the small lessons we pick up along the way. They are the legacy we pass on to our children. They are the things our children will remember us for, good or bad.

Yours completely

Y-not. Yes and also on the personal front, there are several occasions when we see the task to be hard but we ask ourselves y not and we go for it. Your’s truly also learns a lot from children too in this journey of motherhood.

Yell mom

Oh how much they try to control but sometimes it just gets out of control and we yell out. Hats off if you have not heard a yell mom or not being one too. I agree there were times when i had to yell to get some tasks completed. Yelling is bad but its helpful sometimes to show your fear and bring some discipline in kids.

Years Go By Too Fast 

It’s true that once you become a parent, the years fly past. Your little baby grows up way too quickly. It only seems like 6 months ago I was pregnant, but here I am with a 3-year-old toddler being a little whirlwind around the place. It’s important to make memories as a family as they do grow up quickly. Take plenty of photos and have a keepsakes box for all the special times you spent together. Not only will you enjoy looking back at the memories you had with them but they will enjoy looking back on their childhood memories when they are all grown up themselves.

Y-Not

Mom never says no, or gives up. They always are ready to try and say why-not(Y-not). This never-give-up attitude sure makes moms an example for their children.

“Don’t just teach your kids to read, teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything.”
— George Carlin

This is the letter “Y” in the journey of motherhood where we explore Mom’s roles in their children’s lives. We can say Mom’s are everything for her kids, you name it we have it. Do read my earlier letters to enjoy the AtoZ of motherhood roles. This post is written as a part of the A2Z challenge, organized by Blogchatter
You will surely love to know-how Moms have exemplary X-Ray vision and she is an eXample we see and look up to in our life. Mother – Yours truly forever and a Y-Not woman. No one can take her place or even be comparable to her. There is no comparison to you oh MoM.

    Excellent advice especially the one about boundaries. Many mothers want to be friends but our children don’t want us to be their friends. They have their own friends. They want us to be their mothers.

    Yell reminds me of an incident. I was very soft-spoken. You cud barely hear my voice. After two kids my husband asked me. What is wrong with you? Where did that soft-spoken girl I married? I said I had two kids she disappeared when they were born! I never raised a finger but the voice has to reach out to them sternly or they will take you for a ride.

    Years really go by too fast. My chubby baby is a teenager already. My little girl has an opinion on everything. Yelling.. how can you go without it even for an hour. I am yelling all day. But yours truly it is. They depend on us and we will never stop loving and encouraging them.
    Beautiful post

    I liked the why not option moms always pick and how relatable is the yell mom

  5. Lovely Post and seriously Moms are the epitome of love and can only be the ones who truly belong to the child in all true sense. I loved the Y- not options a lot. wonderful read I must say.

  6. Moms never give up! Hell yes. Even if we are in doubt, they would make sure if it is good one, then why no do it. Be it hard, why not try!

  7. Payel says:

    Moms need to yell.. as we Bengalis believe without pitai and daant you can’t be raised properly.. jokes apart, once a woman becomes a mother, she is born again to a super being.

  8. Wow another beautiful post with many relatable points. I agree we have to be a yell mom to complete the tasks from kids . and yes, moms always have a never give up spirit with an attitude why not, let’s do it. being a role model is not always an easy thing but as a mom, we all try to do that for setting a good example for kids.

  9. Poonam says:

    Yes, I have been taking plenty of photos and treasuring things in keepsake box.

  10. Yes, things really changed a lot once we become mothers. Mom’s dictionary doesn’t have the word like give-up or quitting. And what to say, mother’s yelling has a different magical power from fathers to kids all come back to their discipline once mothers yell. Haha😃😃😂 Another super power-packed post by you Prague!

    There is no one like mom. No one can love us as mom does, no one can care for us as mom, she understands us being anyones imagination. Love being a mom and love you Mom. You will be my forever love.

  13. Yes!! We can’t keep going without yelling!! Years certainly go by in a jiffy. Of course little things YOU do them or the little feelings You give them matter a lot. Here, I need to confess that I am not a Y-not kind of mom but you inspired me to achieve this motherhood goal to never give up on anything. Thank you.

  14. Aditi Kapur says:

    Yelling is a part of mom’s life because she has to manage everything. And in the end, it’s understandable ‘Yours truly’ that brings children back to the mother.

  15. Ruchi Verma says:

    Oh God! This is so so true, yelling and moms are so well connected 🤪

  16. Suhasini I.P. says:
