As a fresh off the boat mumma, I am constantly in awe of parenting consultants. They always seem to have the grueling task of raising children well and staying unscathed during the whole process tucked beautifully under their belts.
But how surprised would you be if i told you that parenting consultants are in fact as human as us mamas?
Presenting Jaseena; parenting consultant, mama and her insatiably curious 7 year old daughter – Mahek! Follow this adorable pair in a funny new written series on DrMomZine. Everything from “mama how do you know what i want without asking me?” To “mama, where do babies come from?” dealt with here in the most humorous conversations ever between a mama and her kiddo.
It was bedtime, a time in my parenting life when the two of us talk important things like finance, politics, economics, academics, national security and the likes… Oops, I meant the time we talk about love, friendship, food fun and the likes.
Mahek: Mamma, would you love me this much even if I was not your daughter?
Mamma: I love you so much because you are my daughter
Mahek: What if I was a naughty son; would you still love me so much?
Mahek: So then who would love me if I am not your daughter?
Mamma: Some other mother would love you
Mahek: How do I know if she would love me as much as you love me? What is she doesn’t . love me so much can I come back to you?
Mamma: Because you can’t change mothers
Mahek: I change friends at school every time I don’t like them or they fight with me
Mamma: you can change friends but you can’t change mothers you are born from
Mahek: Oh, then that’s a big trap… I love you so much mamma….
