False Motherhood

Post by Daniel-book » 22 Apr 2018, 07:28

My daughter is only ten,
And she insists that we call her ‘mama Ben"
She cares for her younger brother,
And tells him that she is his mother,
My daughter says she is the mother of my son.

My daughter cries when we call her by her name,
She insists we call her ‘mama Ben’,
She carries her younger brother on her lap,
If he ignores her commands,she threatens him with a slap,
She feeds him and lulls him to sleep,
She wakes him up and gives him milk,
My daughter says she is the mother of my son.

My daughter is only ten,
And she insists we call her ‘’mama Ben’,
She teaches Ben how to walk and she cooks for him lunch,
Every Sunday,she dresses him and carries him to church,
She puts his mouth on her flat chest and ‘breastfeeds’ him,
If he cries,she cries too,
If we try to help,she refuses and says she knows what to do.

My daughter is a mother,
She is the mother of her younger brother,
My daughter says she is the mother of my son.

I think she wants to grow up too quick and looks like that will cause a problem in the future. But it's interesting. It's so many strange things going on in the world.

She's is following what she sees as far as a instinctive mother. Even though she's only 10 her natural mother instinct has set in and developed. A small amount of woman never have this instinct.
