Despite age or background, as a mom there are everyday habits and new roles that become second nature as you navigate your way through motherhood. Taxi driver, nurse, event planner, photographer and tooth fairy are just a few new roles the beauty of motherhood allows us to fill.
We’ve gathered 5 universal things every mother does, always with love. Check out the video below, and see how many you relate to.
1. Clean Up the Mess That “Nobody Else Saw.”
Being notorious for cleaning up after us, moms not only clean up our messes, they also teach us how to clean up after ourselves. Mothers set the standard for home cleanliness and instill the household cleaning habits we bring into adulthood.
One thing is certain, most moms accept the responsibility of cleaning up messes even into our teen years. It’s a heroic characteristic, as they tackle messes the rest of the family stays away from. That superglue stuck to the kitchen counter? Mom knows how to get rid of it. That mystery trail of goo leading in from the garage? She’s already on it. It’s something we’re eternally GR8FUL for, even when we forget to show it.
Take a minute and thank mom for every time she’s ever cleaned up a mess that wasn’t hers.
2. Comment on Your Facebook Pictures.
Mom’s love to boost our self-esteem and that’s only amplified with the emergence of social media. There’s no denying Facebook is a family affair in 2020. Getting away with a status post without a family member commenting is rare. Nothing is truer than with selfies. If your mom is super extra, she may even share the photo to her profile. It’s a mom thing, and we kind of love it.
3. Create Year Round Magic.
Whether they’re making sure the tooth under your pillow turns into cash, your Christmas stocking is full, or you get your favorite kind of birthday cake, moms are behind it all.
Moms are “moment makers” with a rolodex of information about you and all the things you love to create lifetime memories you both cherish.
4. Embrace Full Cheerleader Mode.
Being the loudest cheerleader for their children both literally and figuratively is a universal “mom” trait. Our moms are our biggest cheerleaders and often defenders. Between screaming your name when you get the ball, to endless camera flashes when it’s your turn in the dance competition, or defending you to teachers, moms are quite possibly our #1 fan for life.
5. End Every Phone Call with “I Love You.”
And lastly, always expect an “I love you” at the end of every phone call. If it’s not obvious enough with everything they do, moms never hold back their words to show us they care.
If you weren’t thinking about it yet, pick up the phone and give mom a call right now to let her know you love her too.
