Mother’s Day in Spain is getting very close and in Crowne Plaza Barcelona we cannot resist to celebrate such a special day.
There are plenty of mum’s in the world and every single one of them is unique in their own way. However, sometimes there are some things about mum’s that they share in their personality or in the way that they raise their kids which many of us will probably feel identified with. Some sort of clichés about them. For this reason we have decided to collect a series of “mum prototypes” where one can find out the type of mum they are or have. Let’s go!
- The supermum who can do it all
These are the all-rounder unstoppable kind of mums. Supermums are those who have the ability to handle different situations at the same time and that don’t stress! Definetely very admirable. Not only that but they also manage to have an incredible memory to cover all of their kids’ needs. An endless amount of energy and a couple hours of sleep will do for them to recover and confront the next day with their best mood.
- Cooking lovers
There are some mum’s who are great at cooking, some others that aren’t as good… And then there’s those kind of cooking-lover mums who put all their effort into slow cooking the best meals for their family. Pots and pans do not rest in that kitchen and their recipes probably exceed the creativity of many chefs around the world.
Cooking-lover mums who spend hours and hours inside their kitchens enjoying every step of cooking abundant, delicious meals made with all their love.
- The sportswoman
The habit of being active is healthy and good for you. However when you have an athletic mum there’s definitely some moments where one wishes that she abandoned her sport shoes at least for once.
Athletic mums will not want you sleeping in until late on a Saturday morning, they will very probably be taking you on a hike to the top of the mountain or get some waves at the beach. Who even mentioned taking a nap or a good “siesta” after lunch, there’s definitely no stop here and they will keep pushing you until you can’t keep on anymore. As exhausting as it may be, once the effort is over and you think about all the shared moments with her, you will definitely feel very grateful and very thankful to have done all those things together.
- The worrying mum
The majority of mums have written in their DNA “protect your little ones”. The love mums have for their family is beyond and this translates into worries whenever they fear something. The worrying mums will need to have everything under control, know who their kids are with, when they are coming back, and sometimes this will limit ones freedom due to overprotection.
As time goes by and kids get older, slowly the worrying mums will start calming down, letting go and trusting their personal autonomy.
- The lectionary
The lectionaries are those mums who want their kids to learn what life is about on their own. This means learning to fall and stand back up again on their own, the kind of learning based on test-error where they will slowly learn what is good and bad.
Sometimes these kind of mums will be a bit resilient to baby their kids and may even seem strict and harsh, however the reality is that they are protecting their children in their own way. They know there are tough times and they will always protect them doing their best: letting them learn how to protect and figure things out on their own.
- The patient and the impatient
Mothers have to face every day a constant challenge: patience, with probably many moments where they will have to take in a deep breath.
Those who are patient will know perfectly how to handle these situations, controlling their temper with no problem. But for those who are more impatient, that’s where the challenge comes in to try and stay calm.
Whichever your case is, both patient and impatient mums will share one same thing: there is not a kiss or a hug they will resist to.
These are only some of the common prototypes that we share worldwide. Surely by reading this you will feel identified with one of these mum profiles, whether you are already in the mummy or in the children’s team.
