I was tagged by Molly, to do 'Real Women'.
I was, coincidentally sent an email this morning, by a friend, with a pretty good explanation of what it is to be a Real Mom/Mum/Mater/Ma, call her what you will.
But of course that doesnt exactly cover the real women, who are not mothers, but are nonetheless 'Real Women'
I say Real Women, are Flexible first and foremost, and Adaptable comes a close second.
Real Women can, & mostly do, wear any one of 100 'hats' during the course of their day.
Think of a letter of the alphabet, & you can think of a hat a woman might wear just during the normal course of her life, on any one given day.
A for Abitrator, Administrator, ...
B for Beauty, Balance Bellow..
C for Cook, Cleaner, Clipper-around-the-ears in emergency situation....
D for Director, Dishwasher, Doormat, Debater...
Right on down through the alaphabet to Z, for Zebra Crossing woman! or Zither-playing-Zany-hearted-woman....
Ok that might be stretching it, but I am sure you get what I mean.
In a partnership, I could almost guarantee it is the Male career that comes first.
The Real Woman will make sacrifices, or, to call it another name, she will become 'Flexible', & make most of the adjustments.
This is a pic of this "Real Woman" Meggie with Leo, taken by GOM, today in the sunny warm morning of our backyard.
Just before I raced off to collect my daughter J, & small Grandson D, to attend a Parents & Grandparents Morning Tea at D's Pre School.
