Long time ago a friend of mine came to visit me, all my babies were crying and I was still very calm managing the situation, then she said to me: „You do not look like a mother, you look peaceful, not tired and you do not have food spots on your clothes…” Is she right, does a mother have to be like this??
Some people say that the best mother is the one, who stays at home, or the working mother is the good one…uhm, I believe a mother would prefer to spend most of the time with her chid/children, but that is not always the case, the life shows you that can be different. I think the best answer is when you feel the love from your kids and they are happy to have you as a mother. I am a mother (not a perfect one) and I have wonderful kids.
