I was joyfully swimming in the pool when all of a sudden a scratching sound arose and I looked up to find Alicia stretched over the pebble flooring. The very same painful surface that was too rough to be even walked on.
The moment of panic that stroke was indescribable.
It felt like it took me ages to reach to her and I didn’t even wanna look to see the damage done.
I tried to seek comfort through my mother who have birthed three children only to find her crying at the sight of the blood coming out of Alicias knees.
What do I do now? How do mothers react when they find their children bleeding and in pain? And why has my mom become such a marshmallow with age?
This is the same woman that when many years back I was a child and fell of the school bus she encouraged me toughly to get back on telling me that I am a good girl and good girls don’t cry.
She used to be a strong woman but now with my daughter she turned into a mega baby.
I ran around in circles not knowing what to do.
That is when I realized that there really should be a license to wed and parent just like the one for driving!
I mean how do we take on the responsibility that involves another human being while totally unequipped?
I have come across many immature mothers.
I have found that even I, who consider myself responsible and reasonable, have failed many many times in keeping my cool and using my brain to know how to react in certain situations.
As a result, I find it necessary to spread further awareness on how to deal with such events and would love to hear personal stories and suggestions from mothers and what situations you’ve encountered and how you dealt with it.
