“When your mother is your go-to person in parenting, you go to her for everything child-related.
You go to her for advice on marriage with little kids after a shouting match,.
Her breastfeeding tips when you have low milk supply or a plugged duct.
Her recipes she cooked for you when you were little.
Her opinion on your kids’ struggles.
You go to her for everything because she’s been through it.
And she’s the only person who cares to hear about how your kid’s first day of school and doctor’s appointment went.
How your kids fought all morning, and you snapped.
How your toddler came up to you and said I love you for the first time.
You tell her everything because she cares to hear it.
And when she’s away, you feel her presence.
Because the love between a mother and her child is so strong, you hear her voice and what she’d say even when you’re at a distance.
She helps you, calms you, laughs with you in the chaos, and comforts you while you cry.
And in your mind, there’s no mom better, because she’s yours.
So, of course, she’s your go-to person in parenting.”
