Mother loves all the kids, she can’t be partial, Really?
When the first child is born, a mother is born. But for the second child it’s a well experienced mom ready to face the challenges, which she has already faced. Hence there are some behavioral differences and different reaction while facing the same situation again. DO you Agree?
Let me give you a couple of instances
1. When you are expecting:
For the first baby everyone is super excited, head over heels. Everyone is around your checking what you need, what is bothering you. Once the baby is born everyone wants to see it first.
With the second one Aaa…mmm…. she know how to take care
2. Photo Shoots:
The first child: Even before your belly started showing you find the best photographer, you kept an account of growth of belly and the baby for almost two years.
With the second one… you thought a photoshoot was such a waste and did home photography that too by end of third trimester and then on special occasions only
The first child: Panic, why is he crying… run to the doctor
The next one: you know which medicine to give, how much to give and you even know how many days recovery time is required.
;;;; The first child: We rushed to respond to night time crying for the baby’s sake.
;;; The next one: We rush to respond to night time crying so that she won’t wake up her sister.
;;;;; The first child: We encouraged motor;;;; skill and ambulatory development. Praised all accomplishments.
; The next one: Most of the things taught by elder sibling and we Start worrying once he Starts running around you will be exhausted in managing two kinds in two different directions.
;; The first child: Got so many toys to help increase skills like activity mat, exersaucer and even a High Chair.
The next one: You accepted kitchen utensils make a better toy 😌😛
The first child: Had the benefit of all your attention. Good thing because I had no idea what I was doing.
The next one: Has the benefit of my experience. Good thing because I am busy explaining to her brother why he doesn’t get all of the attention anymore.
The first child: Brought the most powerful of all love into my life for the first time.
The next one: Brought the most powerful of all love into my life for the first time, again.
No matter how we react to all these things, but mom loves all the kids equally, what does your experience say???
