Toxic parents

anger-18658_960_720

I am the mother of a 15-month-old beautiful little girl. In fact, all parents think that there is no more beautiful child in the world as their child. Parents are not able to see the lack of beauty or any other irregularity on their child/children. Let’s face it, when born, children are not perfectly shaped. When the baby comes out, it’s a bit shriveled, unformed. Sensitive parts of their bodies as head, tummy, arms, and legs form later, when the child grows up a bit. But mother sees the magnificent creation immediately. She can look at the child for hours, admiring and loving every piece of her baby which she proudly delivered to this world. Later on, when a child becomes capable of grabbing some food with a spoon or knife, or even to arrange cubes in the right order, a parent feels like his child made something meaningful for the progress of the whole humanity.

My house was cleaner than a chemist’s, my family enjoyed a delicious, home-made food every day, I jumped on every wink of my baby, even my dog was satisfied. I mastered multitasking. Juggled between house works and a baby like a real pro. In my job description of a housewife, I could add even mowing of the lawn.

rsz_baby-927260_1280I am a mother of the one-year-old adorable little girl. I remember being pregnant. First of all, no one tells you that you do not feel high for nine months waiting for the baby. So that was the first misconception.
