Mother is one of feminine role labels. When we think of our mother, soft, warm and calm feelings arouse. But have you ever wonder how a mother has to deal with us, her children, since we’re newborn until we’re grown ups?
I have no idea until I became one.
Actually I have an idea, its the soft, warm and calm feelings I described earlier.
But little did I know..
Gian was born in such quiet place. There was just the two of us, his parents. Right from the first night he went through, it was just us three. So, there’s only husband or I, handling Gian. Of course mostly I am handling Gian.
Handling a baby needs courage. Real courage. Since baby is so fragile, and they can only cry.
Gian first days, I told myself not to use my head and just man up! Gian cries like every other baby, and sometimes I have to shut my pity feelings for him in order to get him cared. Bathing, changing diapers and cloths, picking bugger from his nose and ears, cleaning his tongue, patting his back to get a burp, giving him a massage to release gas.
Not only for the baby, but also for the mother.
And it won’t get any easier as the baby grows.
And I must say, man is nowhere near a woman when it comes to strength and courage.
When you think you are better than any woman, lets see you become a mother 🙂
