The Many Roles of … Mom

When you become a mother, you become more than a mother. You take on a variety of roles. In the 9 months that Ella has been with us, I have seen my wife, Sam, take on many of these roles. Before we ever got married, I was amazed at all the things she did. She was a master multitasker. Now, as a mother, she has gone above and beyond what she did before.

Think about the various roles a mother takes on:

  • Master Chef
  • A Teacher
  • A Nanny
  • A Nurse
  • A Taxi Driver
  • A Counselor
  • A Comforter
  • An Alarm Clock
  • A Photographer
  • A Cheerleader
  • A Hero
  • A Party Planner
  • A Personal Shopper
  • A Hair Stylist
  • A Secretary

And, of course, a housekeeper. In preparation for putting up the Christmas tree, we were cleaning the house. Sam said she needed to vacuum. I walked out of the room to put something in the kitchen, and I walked back into the room and caught this:

Sam was vacuuming with Ella in her arms! When I asked what she was doing, she said, “I always hold her while vacuuming … unless she is napping.” I find it hard to make a bottle while holding Ella, yet my wife multitasks and does all kinds of things with Ella in tow. She never ceases to amaze me.

I just wanted to make sure that she got some kudos for all that she does for Ella and me. Thank you, baby! We love you and we agree….

  1. Nice post Keith. I’m glad you don’t take her and the jobs she does for granted. My mom was a single mom and I could never have repaid her for what she did.
