Something About Mary
Mary Stevenson Cassatt (May 22, 1844 – June 14, 1926) was an American painter and printmaker. She lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later exhibited among the Impressionists. Cassatt often created images of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children.(Source)

Bath time is an interesting part of the mother and child ritual. There’s lots of emotions attached to it. It’s always dependent on timing. If your child is in the mood, bathing can be exciting and a good bonding experience. However, if your child is too tired or not in the mood then it’ll be trying for both of you.

Raising your child without any help is no easy task and often mothers have little or no more energy at the end of the day. However, I can guarantee you that when your child starts to show affection by touching your face, kissing or simply rubbing their face against yours, all the stress and fatigue melt away.

One of the most exciting Mother and Child moments is when your child has his first glimpses of the mirror. They actually think there’s another child in the house (or inside the mirror anyway). And you can tell by their smile that they really want to play together.
