Why I Rather Be A Mom On Mars….

  

Having kids, is having your heart go walking outside your body. I remember hearing it when I was pregnant and thinking: “Oh No! I won’t be that kind of moms!” Little did I know, that it would be even worse than what I was warned of! It is as if my heart is separated from my body and walking away! And what is even worse is that it will always be this way, even if he is 10,20,30,…..90years old! So yes I am that kind of moms: I only have eyes for my son. I take hundreds of photos of my kid and I spend every minute of my son’s time with him! Also, there are things -lots of them- that totally set off my spidey sense! And things that simply upset me! And make me wanna live in another planet! Here are few of them:
1- When people offer food to my toddler. I realise how nice of a gesture this is, and that they only do it because they are friendly and generous. However, my son has many food allergies so far, and I can’t just risk having him getting sick because someone has offered him something he never had before! 
2- When people kiss my son on the cheeks (or anywhere on his face). One word: Germs!!!!! I am not a fan of sleepless nights due to sickness, therefore I am totally against people kissing babies/toddlers! 

3- When people ask me why do I put my son to sleep at 7pm! Simply because babies/toddlers need at least 12 hours of sleep at night, for their brain’s development! It is also important for restoring their energy! Not to mention that since I am the only one who takes care of my son most of the time (no babysitter, no nanny, just me and my husband), I need to rest! Ooh yeah and also: My house My rules lol!! 

4- When people ask with an accusing tone of voice, why don’t I use medication when my son is sick and instead completely rely on home remedies! The answer is very simple, there is nothing wrong with using natural remedies to treat any kind of illnesses. They have been used years and years ago, and it has been proven to give more benefits than its over the counter counterparts. 

5- When people ask me why don’t I get some help and hire a babysitter: I never complained first of all, then under no circumstances I would like to miss a minute of my baby’s life! These baby/toddler days are very numbered and will soon finish! So I am taking advantage of each second and minute I still have! Yes it is tiring but I wouldn’t have it any other way!!  

I am sure every Mama has her own fears, likes and dislikes. I am also sure not everyone agrees with me and that’s Okay. However, I am very curious to know the little things that piss you off, as a mother, and what makes you uncomfortable as a parent! Please share!

    Love your post. I too have a little one with food allergies and we live & die by 7pm bedtime 🙂 haven’t tried a babysitter yet either for the same reasons!

  2. I m one of the martian moms!! Sure i can t trust my babies life with no ONE , i just have this feeling that no one can be more careful than me or their dad. I m afraid of that tiny second where a lot of bad things can happen if i dont have my eyes of them . I dont trust babysitters or housekeepers specially that my kids still cant express themselves or defend themselves ! They are my soul, my everything , sure there is ups and downs , moments of wickness , sometimes u just getting exhausted BUT its just worth it and i feel blessed thank god ❤️ About the thing that pisses me off is when i m teaching a lesson to my sons or not allowing them to do something and someone interfers … And says noo go ahead baby , why u dont let them do this or “khalass 3aaadi”! Well THAT makes me out of my mind! Helllllllo raise ur own child and leave mines !! I hate disrespectfull intruders , its like an invasion on my private space ! Human invasion on my planet mars 😅
