The Queen Bee Mom
Motherhood is unique because being a mother encompasses so many roles. She is a counselor, cook, doctor, teacher, lawyer, maid, scientist, and comforter. God has equipped mothers with these very unique characteristics. God designed mothers, unlike fathers, with an emotional side that makes things better for their children. There is a tenderness, compassion, which is instinctive in the heart of a mother for her children. So can I say She is The Queen Bee Mom, She is the queen of her kingdom.
Is there a day when we truly recognize this all-important figure, the queen of our life, who shapes our childhood providing unconditional love through our successes and failures with encouragement and support through our struggles? Just wishing her on mother’s day won’t serve the purpose.
Let’s check out her role with alphabet Q today, where she truly deserves to be The Queen Bee Mom, Quintessential woman, and Question & Answer manager(Q&A manager).
Mother – Queen of Life
Now that I call her The Queen Bee Mom, this reminds me of the queen bee. She is usually the mother of most, if not all, of the bees in the beehive. Just like a queen bee, if she can give you honey stay prepared she can sting you too. Yay, a sting with honey is the combo from the honey bee you get. Moms also are a combo of sugar and spice, honey and sting/ dunk both.
Have you ever wondered what role the queen really plays within the hive? The queen, of course, is pivotal to everything that happens within a healthy beehive. The queen is very directed and regimented in everything she does, the queen to be a decision-maker, of sorts. She is the star of the hive.
A queen is reasonably easy to spot within a hive, assuming you pull out the frame on which she rests. similarly isn’t it easy to spot a mom from a distance? She is never prepared for this but she certainly becomes the ring leader. Taking the responsibility of family she learns to rule them but all for their happiness and success only, not for her ease.
But not all queens are lucky. Like their counterparts in human society, Nature’s queens seem to have it all. Being queen does have its challenges, however, ranging from simply taxing to the potentially lethal. I wish all moms are treated and regarded as queens globally.
So this is the Queen Bee Mom, the alpha female within the pack — the queen bee.
I lately came across a book titled – Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads. I’m myself now curious to check what’s in the book that shares the role a mommy plays. The review I read says – Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads is essential reading for parents today. It offers us the tools to become wiser, more relaxed parents–and the inspiration to speak out, act according to our values, show humility, and set the kind of example that will make a real difference in our children’s lives.
Along with Queen Bee, the mother also has qualities of the Queen Ant. You’ve probably heard of queen bees — but what about queen ants? Queen ants do exist, and just like their counterparts in bee, wasp and termite societies, their job is to make sure their colonies thrive.
Talking of Queen Ant, it may be hard to believe, but you probably live right next door to royalty. we’re talking about ants – namely queen ants and how this one member of an ant colony is the key to success for every ant nest. Queen of her Kingdom and people living in it.
I know saying and calling a mom queen is very easy, when on the ground many mothers are facing and living a life of misery too. No one ever appreciates or even considers their existence.
The least we can do is try some steps as children or family members and find ways to make mothers feel like a queen, somedays at least. By simply trying to let her do nothing for a day for a change.
Treat the Mother in your life to a clean house, a home-cooked meal, and no obligations. Mothers with children rarely ever get to do anything and relax. Breakfast in bed, a glass of wine, a book by her favorite author, and the absolute requirement that the children come to you for everything that day. Mothers need a respite from the day-to-day responsibilities.
Mom a quintessential at home
I had always seen my mom as my ideal. She is the most perfect or typical example of a quality. The dictionary says – The Quintessential Woman is today’s modern woman, who is smart, confident, and trendy. She knows who she is and what she wants out of life. Driven, self-motivated, and refined, but is beautifully imperfect. The one who seeks to enhance who she is and the life she has. No denial I see my mom completely fitting into this definition.
Aha, mom is the best question and answer manager around. Always ready to raise queries and also give answers to all were random stupid weird queries too. She knows when to pop us the question, especially when the child is not expecting it or is even ready. And ask her a question, she has the answer to all of them. How she manages is always suspense.
So many roles, and so many hats, she wears them all so well. Try and send her away to a movie, or shopping spree, or just meditation or a trip to the mall or even a park alone. Mothers also want to feel pretty and appreciated too! Let the Queen bee mom get the feel too.
