Labels: my thoughts on motherhood
Being a Mom takes all of our free time .For me as a new Mom its still hard to adjust to time management .
taking care of the house and my little one is something I enjoy doing most ,and of course I have many hobbies that i like to do .
I am a Muslim woman ,who likes to study and read ,crochet and knit ,to sew and to drew ,to cook and to write ,to design and redesign my house ,to do shopping and to meet with friends and much much more .
This is totally opposite to what most people think of us Muslim women as oppressed and uneducated .
Well, I think those people need to educate themselves and we as women need to educate them about who we are ...
Being mother is something that is great rewarded by Allah (one true God) .There is no job in this world that can be greater then being Mom . From the first day I held my baby in my arms ,from that day I love him more and more and he is the treasure of all treasures .
I can't never leave this treasure with babysitter or anyone to do MY job ,because this is mother's job to take care of her child and I'm proud of this job ,this is my career ,this is my life and my reward is with my God,the greatest reward ,more then money can buy ,money come and go ,but reward from Allah( one true God) never ends ...
Then think my sister ,if you want to leave your child with a babysitter ,because you choose a career over motherhood .Do you think someone will be more compassionate with your child ,more then you ? Do you think someone will hug your baby and give him a kiss ,and hold him till he stops crying ,the way you do ?
Do you think someone will care about him when he is playing lonely with his toys ? Do you think someone more then you will care what he is watching on TV ? Do you think someone will clean him the way you do ?
I don't think even most experienced babysitter can give the child the love the a mother does ...
Are you bonding with your child ? Or are you too lazy to breastfeed .This is so common now days just to get rid of baby's needs by giving him/her formula and to give excuse I'm not getting enough milk for him .
And how about co-sleeping with your child .Do not learn from the West to leave your babies in the bed crying until they fall asleep ,this is not the compassion that we are taught in Islam .
Be compassionate ,kiss your child ,hug him and kiss him/her often and learn the beauty of bonding ..
These are just my thoughts on motherhood !
