Brilliant Qualities We Know You Have
1. You have a Great Sense of Humour
How else do you handle food-on-the-floor and colors-on-the-walls day in and day out? All with a cheerful face too!
2. You are as Patient as the Hills!
Sleepless nights, toddler tantrums, work life balance – everything may take you for a toss but you have reserves of patience that are wondrous to the rest of us. Only occasionally does your patience dwindle and woe betide everyone then!
3. You are Connected to Spirituality and Inner Beauty in the World
Fluff, superficiality and material possessions don’t delight you as much as your baby’s smile, the thought behind the greeting card your tot made for you, and the peace you feel during the rare me-time.
4. You have Terrific Family Values and also Help your Kids Imbibe Them
The Grandpas and Grandmas from both sides of the family are connected thanks to you. Family comes first for you and you are always willing to go the extra mile for them.
5. You’re stronger than you know!
Tired out after a long day spent mommying, you still have the strength to greet your kids with a smile, whip up delicious foods, and be all set to repeat the next day. You probably make do with just a few good things you do for yourself, such as a guilty cup of coffee.
6. Your sense of understanding and consideration is exemplary
It seems perfectly reasonable to you that your children want new foods for evening snacks and their toys continue to be jumbled up even after their best efforts. They are kids and they are learning – and your understanding fuels them along.
7. You’re a great teacher – of everything from the alphabets, to bringing up a fine young person!
You are your children’s first teacher. You’re also the one they will always cherish and remember. Your kids grow up learning from you and appreciating what you have done for the society. They can never be absent in your class either!
8. You are always fair, come what may
Mommy loves her kids a lot but she is never unfair. You know the perfect way to resolve sibling disputes and chocolate is not your sole solution to problems. While there may only be a few appreciating what you have done for other people, trust us when we say you’re there in their hearts.
9. You have a fun streak in you that you love to unleash every now and then!
With kids, you often become one too and get your hands and feet dirty in the mud. There is a reason you are their best friend and confidante.
10. Most importantly, you love the small pleasures of life. And we salute you for it
The morning sunshine, your cup of steaming hot chai, your baby’s small little fingers and toes, your husband’s good night hug…your life is complete with little sources of joy and that’s exactly how you like it.
There, Mommy, did you see just how many reasons you have for self appreciation?
Fall in love with yourself this year and you will see the world smile and laugh with you.
