Mother To Mother Midwifery

Dear Mother,

“She doesn’t do that with me.” “He only does that when you’re around. .” You’ve probably heard a well-meaning person say this in regards to your child’s behavior.

“Oh he never does that with me”- meaning, “This untrained wildebeest high drama stuff never goes down when the angel is with me so it must be you.”

Let me let you in on a little secret 12 years of parenting has taught me: children behave differently for their mothers. They do. Little sweet angel babies have a whole different set of behaviors for the person they love and torture the most.

Your little cherub will eat anything at grandma’s house right? They know not to act the fool for daddy? They have listening ears at school, am I wrong? But when it comes to you they can’t do a d*mn thing for themselves and only speak whine language.

“She never does that with me,” is something people pretending not to know this say. They know full well their self-righteousness is unearned. Children are smart. They know their mother is the least likely person in the world to drop kick them into quicksand so they release more craziness upon us.

That’s how it is. Yes, we can correct them with the LOOK or the Disney witch voice where we speak without moving our teeth but they will try us in ways they don’t try anyone else. Testing boundaries/love and whatnot- I’m not a psychologist but I see it every day.

NOTE: There is a phenomenon called the First Easy Kid where parents will get a first child who is an absolute breeze. I had this. Don’t get proud, your next one will be a straight demon. That’s how it works. It’s a trick from Mother Nature to keep the population going. It’s numbers game, really. Because if some people had the beast child first, they wouldn’t have any more. That’d be a wrap for them. So if you’re on your easy first kid, I encourage you to have another. Do it and see.

Anyway, the lesson here is to stay humble. We cannot let the children divide us because that’s how they win. Grandmas and grandpas, we know you’re bribing them and enjoying this. That said, free babysitting is the best babysitting so carry on and do you.

I hope you guys are surviving this freakish week. Stay positive. Cereal is a dinner. Chocolate milk is a valid breakfast. Ask for help. Order the thing. Put on some deodorant (showers are for losers). Pray. Do whatever it takes- I see you trying and I’m proud of you. The kids are alright.

Love, Bunmi ♥️☺️
