(What mothertype are you?)
I just read in mamma.no about different types of mothers trying to figure out what type I am...
Hmm, a good mix of many types I would say.
Let me say that I am not a controllmum. I hardly ever bring a shoppinglist to the shop, I delievered the taxdeclaration a minute ago (on the last day!) and I take ages to mark my kids clothes for the kindergarden. I am neither the kind of mum that knows everything about cremes and medicine for kids... That is basically because my kids never get sick... So no one ever calls me for good advices!
I could have slight tendencies to be a bit neurotic... Already during my first pregnancy I was convinced that my baby would be misshaped and have strange syndroms.
I often worry for my kids at nighttime... Not too seldom I have nightmares where bad things happen to them because I dont control them well enough.
I am a very efficient mum. While kids watch TV I clean kitchen, do laundry, cook, bake or something else. Then I have more time with them afterwards. I always prioritize playing and spending time with my kids.
I see myself as a quite diplomatic and politically correct mother. I will more often discuss quietly why my kids need to wear a lot of clothes in the winter, rather than shouting NO to them when they want to put on shorts...
I am definitely a 1950s mother... I do believe that it was better to grow up when I was a kid, and I need loooong time to adjust to new things.
I do believe that kids should play actively rather than with iPads and other gadgets...
I cook very often from scratch and tell my kids how important it is to eat healthy and varied.
I NEVER buy prechopped veggies in the shop. For Gods sake, that take one minute to do myself;)
I prioritized to stay home with my kids for 4 years, only the last year I have been a fulltime-worker. I still consider that I spend a lot of time with my family.
Its been going on behalf of my own sosial life, but I do believe that what I invest in my kids now, will bring me a close and open relationship with them later.
How do you see yourself as mothers?
