Who says you don't maintain friendships once mom? Yes, some relationships can be harder to maintain than others, but new relationships can also be formed.
No matter what category of moms you fall into, every mom has her circle of friends who are also moms. Whether these women were chosen or not, each one of them brings either knowledge, giggles, moments of reflection or simply listening to our lives.
Here are, in my opinion, the 6 types of moms you need in your life.
1. Your child's best friend/godmother
She's been there since you urinated on your pregnancy test and you knew, even before you were pregnant, that she would be your baby's godmother. Whether she has kids or not, yours is just as much hers, and you know each other by heart. This mom is there through your ups and downs and never misses an important event. She's here permanently!
2. The mom whose child is the best of yours
This one came into your life during the first years of your child's life. Your children are inseparable and you get along wonderfully. In my case, the starslined up and put in my path not just a great person, but a woman who has so much in common with me it's almost scary. Both single parents, our children (who are one month apart) are inseparable.
3. The colleague mom
Important one! Being the only mom in an office can be very difficult. Not only because we want to talk about our children's achievements and show their recent school photo, but because we sometimes arrive at the office already exhausted from having de alt with a crisis because son wanted to put on his own stockings this morning there. This colleague mom understands us and is our ally when we need to settle! She doesn't roll her eyes when we announce that we have to leave early because the daycare called saying that son has caught yet another gastrointestinal illness and, if we're really lucky, she'll even check on us.
4. Your own mom
Your mom is your ally no 1. There are going to be days when her advice will be too much, when she will intervene with your child of a way you won't agree with, but she raised you, washed you, nurtured you and was a big part of creating the mom you are today. With her good and less good sides, she now becomes your offspring's grandmother. His view of you will change, because you are now a mother in turn, and your relationship will evolve. She's a precious ally and, probably, the one you call in the middle of the night when you're exhausted and don't know what.do to comfort baby.
5. The opposite mom
In my opinion, this mom is important to have in your life, because she pushes you to question yourself, to question yourself and to question yourself. Of course, she doesn't have to be totally the opposite of you, but having a mom with different values and philosophies from yours is important in your life. You do things differently and you don't always agree on how to educate your children and that's stimulating! It will push you to ask yourself lots of questions and to change or reinforce your beliefs and habits!
6- The non-mom
This one is sometimes difficult to keep in the group of friends, but she deserves her place. She will come to remind you that you are not just a mom and that you have the right to take time for yourself. She is always present at children's parties and dinners that do not end too late because the children have to go to bed and, in return, you owe her a little girls' night out every once in a while. An evening where you don't talk about your little girl's last flu or about meeting parents, which was difficult. You talk about fashion, love, sex or philosophy. The non-mom is your best ally to reconnect with the woman behind the mom.
I'll end by telling you about a little thought that hangs proudly in my house and that was given to me by a friend who deserves her own category because she is so fantastic: Friendship is the most important part of the recipelife!
Often people mistakenly claim they “have the flu” when it is a cold. Attention, it must be understood here that the 2 evils are very different
The incessant bickering between brothers and sisters can undermine the daily lives of all members of a family. Sibling rivalry is inevitable, but it is possible to mitigate its effects by relying on the complicity of your children
Having multiple children is a headache for parents. The word “equitable” takes on its full meaning. We want to give everyone what they need; it takes crazy energy and the guilt is never far away
Indispensable and precious, our friends take a big place in our lives. Studies have even shown that friendship has tremendous he alth benefits
