Unlike many men, women are creatures prone to multitasking. If you believe the statistics and research of British scientists, we can do several things at the same time and quickly learn new areas for us.
With the appearance of a child in my life, I sometimes wonder to myself. If a few years ago I was told that I would learn so many skills, I would not have believed it. But now I know for sure, every mother is able to master new professions for the good of her child.
Many people call it the one boring word housewife, but if you look, the directions of our activities are much more.
I confess to you in secret, I got married, having a modest baggage from the recipe for Russian salad. I remember that at first I even cooked pasta in accordance with the instructions on the packaging. Or she called kume and whisper (so that her husband would not hear!) She learned from her the secrets of tasty cutlets.
With the advent of my daughter, the circle of my kitchen duties has expanded. First, the child needs soups that I have never cooked before. And secondly, there was less and less time for cooking.
Well, over the years, without false modesty, I confess, I have succeeded, which can not but rejoice. Butterfly mashed potatoes? Easy! Dumplings in the form of bears? Easily! Pancakes in the form of the sun? You are welcome! Do you have eyes made of jam or sour cream?
With all due respect to our medicine, every mother must have at least minimal concepts in this area. At least in order to provide first aid to the sick child in anticipation of the arrival of the doctor.
I read a lot about okolrachicheskie topics, I know by heart the indications and dosages of the main children’s drugs, and I get along perfectly well without half of them at least. I am glad that this approach gives its results – the daughter is extremely rare, which is good news.
I am for the game form of training. Rarely there are cases of boring sitting on notebooks. We learn to read and count during walks, we attach favorite characters to the learning process.
Yes, children have classes in kindergarten, but this does not remove responsibility from their parents. After all, you need to check your homework, and knowledge in the garden gives a minimum, and if the child has a desire to learn, why should we deny him that?
Probably, there is no such mother who would not read articles from the series How to communicate with a child, How to understand a baby, etc. All of them contain basic concepts from the field of child psychology, which we, of course, use in practice. This is the principle of self-communication, and the right tactic for praise and punishment, and much more.
Did I know about six years ago how to wash grass stains on the knees of new jeans? And black oil from white shorts? How to care for membrane clothing and how to wash fukortsin from the skin? Now I know about it even without the help of a search engine.
There is such a profession, the shopper – a person who knows how to competently make purchases. No, this does not mean that I can now bypass the queue to get a limited edition handbag. But I successfully buy children’s clothes with discounts of at least 50-90%, and after using them I sell them at least successfully.
Before the appearance of my daughter, all my hairdressing skills were limited to the ability to do a horsetail hairstyle. But this is not enough for my girl, she needs pigtails, and not ordinary, but French, or in the form of a wreath, or seashells. Well, I had to master it.
Have you ever sewed a suit for a matinee in one evening? Or clothes for a doll party? Well, at least patches for holes sewed? I am yes. Therefore, with a clear conscience, I add to my list skills in the field of sewing.
It only seems that the life of the mother from the sport is far. I do not think that in the gym load more. Who among us did not lift the stroller up the steps? And with food packages in one hand and a child in the second? And the morning run in kindergarten? A game of hopscotch, trying to teach a little man to ride a scooter / roller skate / bike? All this is a real sport!
This profession is perfectly mastered by every mother. Since the moment the baby was born, this is the most important magic!
Isn’t it a magic to be able to wash dishes at the same time, entertain the baby and also turn the chops at the same time? Oh yeah, and all with one hand. And to organize a children’s holiday, gifts from Santa Claus or money from a tooth fairy under the pillow?
And surprise cookies, furniture from a shoe box and a T-shirt with your favorite characters? All of this is small, but miracles, many of which we do not even pay attention to, and create them at the level of automatism. And only children know that their mothers are good sorceresses, and only we know how much effort it costs!
