Amma: Eat your breakfast before leaving home otherwise you’ll feel hungry while writing your exams.
Me: Noo ma, I am already late. I know I won’t feel hungry.I’ve had milk.
At the exam hall, After an hour of writing, My stomach growls of hunger.
Me: Damn! I should have listened to mom and should have eaten something, She is always right!
I am sure almost all of us have had experienced many such situations where you realize that your mom was always right. Almost everything we experience, our mothers would have already experienced the same. All of them even before we existed! We can trust that she knows what she’s talking about because she’s gone through it and that she’s talking out of the experience. It might be the maternal instinct for some reason or the other, moms are always right. She knows us better than we know about ourselves. It’s often something that we don’t realize until we come to a situation to come to a conclusion that you should have listened to her in the first place.
When I was pregnant, my mother took the utmost care of me, answering all my fears, doubts, and was the solid support to me. There were times when I argued, questioned her for the stringent rituals followed. Only to realize now that she was right!
7 things my mom was always right about
- Sleep well while you’re pregnant. Once you have a baby, sleep becomes a luxury.
- It’s okay to cry and vent the feelings out when you feel low(blame the hormones :P).
- Your body will remarkably be sensitive for a few months after you give birth; Take better rest else you’ll back pain issues.
- Babies don’t behave the same every day. Patience is the key!
- Eat healthy and on time. Well, this applies to everyone and not just new mothers.
- You need to do what’s best for you and the rest will follow.
- You should be careful when you spend your money.
Thank you, mom, for being so patient when I refused to see the obvious and for always being right about everything. I have learned so much, and I can imagine how much I have to learn. Now that I am a mother, I understand what maternal instinct is, and I know what’s best for my daughter. I hope to raise her just like you have raised me giving me all the morals and strength to survive in this world.
