Mother’s Day Special: The Sisterhood Of The Ever Guilty Mummies

After a woman gives birth to her child, she unwittingly becomes part of a club of sorts, a secret group, a sisterhood; one comprised solely of mummies.

After a woman gives birth to her child, she unwittingly becomes part of a club of sorts, a secret group, a sisterhood; one comprised solely of mummies.

You know you’re a member when you get empathetic glances from across rooms, while your child screams, rolling across the floor. You’ll get helpful advice from complete strangers on planes to calm your child down, as he suffers through an ear ache. Suddenly, potty, vomit and pee-pee humour are completely acceptable even in posh restaurants and forgetfulness and clumsiness are excused because every mother understands the trappings of the “mummy brainâ€_x009d_.

Motherhood seems to calm even the most mercurial ones amongst us, and we form this strange bond with each other. We swap delivery stories, tricks to overcome food fussiness and ways to tackle, the endless cold, fever and sickness cycles. We’re irritated by stubborn belly fat, plagued by constant worry, fight sleep deprivation and withstand it all for a love of children that surpasses every other type of love there is.

We go through periods of self-doubt. After another forgotten dental appointment or rummaging through a truck-sized bag to realize we’re missing a clean diaper or a pacifier or formula, we ask ourselves, “am I really a good parent?” and lean on each other for the reminder, that we are humans, and as prone to mistakes as any other.

In today’s world of growing nuclear families, and diminishing elderly presence, this Sisterhood of Ever Guilty Mummies is incredibly valuable, especially because today’s Mummies tend to wear so many hats.
