It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Maternal Pride and Massage Tables

mcmm-buttonYour baby lies on her back and blows bubbles at the world.
Awww. Isn’t that cuuuute?

Your baby rolls over!
Hey, honey! Look what our baby can DO!!!

Your baby claps his hands, takes her first steps, says his first word. Your toddler puts on her own shoes. And every time, your parental heart surges with love and pride. “Awww. Isn’t that so sweet? Look what my baby can do!!!”

You’re all familiar with that. Well, I’m here to tell you it doesn’t stop when the child is out of diapers, nor even when they’re out of school…

Pop over to Mid-Century Moms and see what’s been provoking Mary to ooooh and aaah this week.

  1. Hmmm, again I tried to comment over at MCMM and it didn’t take.

    Boy, you sure have had a full “Mommy” week eh?

    And I have had the same experience. When Son got his first job at our local grocery store, I beamed with pride when I heard over the loud speaker “Supervisor to cash 8” and recognized his voice.

    It was a very surreal feeling, much like you describe.

    There seems to be a fine line between look at my baby take his/her first steps and look at my young adult making their way in the world.
