Being Mommy is the best job in the world. Being Mommy is a job/career that you always wanted. It is 24 hours and 7 days a week, 52, weeks in a year, and 365 days a year (except for leap years). You get the point, right? but don't get me wrong, I love being Mommy to my precious princess, Lina <3 (who haven't even turn a year old yet).
My services to Lina <3 are as follows:
---> Diaper Services: since you were born, Mommy and Daddy (mostly mommy) been changing your diapers; cleaning your behind up; put lotion, diapers, un-petroleum jelly on you. Daddy changes the diaper pail when it gets full.
---> Food service: breast feeding still and will continue to do so for as long as she wants.
---> Caterer: Lina's <3 get homemade foods since she been having solids. As well as cater to all her needs.
---> Food Server: Mommy heats up your foods, feeds you, cleans up afterwards (because you can make such a mess at times)
---> Dishwasher: Mommy washes all your bottles, sippy cup, trays, spoons, and bowls. You have so much dishes for such a tiny person.
---> Fashion Stylist: I choose Lina's clothes for her, and sometimes Daddy does as well.
---> Nurse: Mommy will fix any boo-boos (bumps on heads) that comes Lina's <3 way and then kiss it.
---> Singer: Mommy sings lullabies to help you sleep, sings ABC's to educate you, sings You Are My Sunshine that makes you laugh, giggle, and smile, sings and do hand movements for Patty Cake, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and This Little Piggy.
---> Personal Rocker/Swing: whenever you are crying or too fussy, Mommy will be there rock you, and swing you to help soothe you.
---> Playmate: Mommy does tummy time with you, Mommy plays with you on your booster chair (when not used for mealtimes), hide and seek (Daddy does that a lot with you). Play time is fun for you and me.
---> Chauffeur: wherever Mommy goes, you goes as well; hmmm Daddy is really our chauffeur who personally drives us around :) which we appreciate and love it :)
--->Teacher: teaching you cause and effects (when you switch light switch on and off, when mommy turns off cellphone lights on and off); teaching you that things continue to exist when hidden underneath a blanket or pillow (hide and seek); teaching you to walk with a walker; teaching you to play by yourself at times when mommy need to do something else while in the same room; and story time to help with your words, and language.
---> Comedian: not by telling jokes though; by making you laugh, giggle and smile with Mommy's silly antics (and daddy's too).
---> Personal Carrier: you do not know how to walk yet, sometimes Mommy carries you (especially now) instead of using a stroller or a carrier.
---> Hairstylist: Mommy brushes your hair every day, when you wake from each nap. Since you were three months old, you had bad cradle caps which Mommy needed to pay special attention to. Now the cradle caps are better, it still exist. There's not much to do with your hair since it is short, but Mommy does wash and dry.
---> Massage Therapist: you love it when Mommy massages your legs, especially those chunky thighs.
---> Dermatologist: Mommy has to determine which lotions, diaper creams, shampoos are best for your skin since you have sensitive, and dry skin.
---> Nail technician: Mommy been cutting your fingernails and toenails since you were weeks old. It is a little hard now to cut your nails because you move around so much and you are such a light sleeper.
All these "services" are things that I do for my princess without hesitation. These are the roles of being Lina's <3 Mommy.
