My Baby Does Everything

It is said that, 'There is no way to be a perfect mom, but a million ways to be a good one.'

But, in our opinion, your mother is perfect, and she lives by only one guideline in order to be flawless: do everything perfectly!

"The story inspired from a Mother..."

Parenting, in my opinion, is all about providing a positive example for children. And this thinking motivates me to complete all of my tasks in the same manner as my mother.

I built a flower container out of an old paper tube lately. I painted it black and added small white flowers for more decoration. My sharp-eyed little pie kept a close check on me as I worked.

He, too, wanted to construct his own flower vase, similar to the one I'd built, so I offered him a paper tube and a few different colours to experiment with.

To my surprise, he almost got it right!  

He surprised me with a fully hand painted flower vase! He is a soon-to-be preschooler who is just learning how to wield pencils properly. And it was all finished off with the flower detailing I'd done on the second vase. This is a fantastic match!

Yes... yes... It appears that he already has a flair for getting things done correctly. I'm flattered that he looks up to me in the same manner that I look up to my mother.

But I have to acknowledge that the whole thing was a shambles.

There were paint smears all around the vase once it was complete. Paint had smeared the floor and his favourite outfit.

Despite this, I was ecstatic to have given him the chance to develop his artistic side. His tiny hands had performed the miracle. And watching him paint had brought a huge smile to my face - one that no amount of stains or mess could erase away!

I believe that children all across the world look up to their mothers and want to emulate them. Doing things correctly for a youngster means doing them the same way mom does them.
