Rida’s Question- for me:

The bond between a daughter/son and mother is followed by an intense pure love that has no limits, no crude, and no materialism.

Share your #thoughts #poem #story #arts..anything you wish.

Children are born with a longing for a secure attachment and stability. A lot of the behaviour of a newborn serves the purpose of getting attention – and that is where bonding starts.

Crying motivates the parents to take action ; be it feeding, changing diapers or just holding. Smiling that cute baby smile will certainly result in receiving attention too.

I do believe it was this bond that kept me going and fighting after giving birth to my youngest and staying in hospital for weeks. There were complications, I had lost a lot of blood and a sepsis set in. In the blur of surgery, blood transfusions, throbbing pain, shivers, heavy medication- fighting the raging fever -that little Angel beside me (sleeping most of the time- and when awake just to eat and smile a sleepy smile just to doze off again ) gave me all the strength I needed. She also must have felt that her Mommy was in no position to carry a crying baby around .. so she decided to sleep and not make life more complicated.

And then there was the bond with my other kids. Hospital rules were : No kids under 14 were allowed to enter the ward. Every day friends and other people were congregating in my hospital room- but not my kids.Every day it was pulling harder on me: I have to get better. I need to get back. Every day they had me in tears when their thoughtful little notes, pictures and letters were all I could see from them. “Mom, we miss you!” “Please get better soon!” “I draw this for you” “Can’t wait to have you and the baby home”

They kept me fighting and getting better. I’ve never felt this bond so strong again as during this time but I know it still exists just the same .. or got just so much more stronger.. I don’t really want to find that out again.

********    *******  ****** ****** ****

“Mom, can you please pick me some of those raspberries?” It’s the sweet little voice of the now 3year-old angel.

“Sure, hun!” And no matter how the prickles sting and scratch my arms and legs that happy, grateful glow in the Angel’s eyes and the sweet voice saying : ” Thank you, Mommy” make it all worth it.

There’s also this pure love and special bond to be found in the animal world. I’ll include a few pictures from my animals.

And here are the Questions for my nominees:

  1. What is one thing you would like to change in your country?
  2. First thing you check in the morning?
  3. Which song do you like to hum?
  4. What was an embarrassing experience you had?
  5. Tell me a guilty secret.
  6. List your three, all-time favorite songs.
  7. What do you value most in another person?
  8. What motivated you to start blogging?
  9. What gets you through a bad day?
  10. If you could describe yourself in 3 words- what would they be?
  11. What made you smile today?

Congratulations to my nominees; I will be happy to read your answers. Please if you don’t feel like participating don’t feel obliged.

    1. Aww thank you 😍I thought I could best master the task in writing about my own mother / children bond 😇Hugs and love to you’re so lovely and sweet.


  2. I’m sorry you had such an awful time after the birth of your daughter, that must have been so scary. I hate being away from my son – even three hours of nursery seems too much, although i know that it is so good for him. You must have been so sad to have been away from your other children for such a long time…poor You!

    1. It was a hard time – but all is good now 😇☺it did let me come home being another person too.. appreciating little things and every moment I have with them much more.


  3. Ok, so I don’t feel AS bad. Others didn’t know you had children, either. I thought the animals were your only babies. The story was wonderful. So happy to hear that you have such a beautiful bond with your offspring.

    1. ☺they’re all my babies😇 I was trying to keep my blog more farm/ Belize life related than focusing on my family.. but this task: to write about the bond between parents and children I could write best out of my own experience ☺

  4. Beautiful story about your children. Brought tears to my eyes. I was never that little girl who played “mommy” growing up – so it has totally taken me by surprise over the years how fiercely and unconditionally I love my children. They are my motivation and my inspiration!

    1. I wasn’t either. 😉when I was growing up and thinking about having my own children one day, I was determined to develop a bond with each of them. To feel when they’re unhappy, feeling treated unfair or are sad.To treat them all alike and not having a favorite one. I’m not sure if I’m all of this .. but I’m honestly trying ☺nice to have blogging Moms to connect with😇
