Ssshhhh!!!!! My Mom is a Librarian : 5 Things Only Kids Whose Parent is a Librarian will Understand

Only few people know that my mom is a Librarian by profession and I think most of my friends knew she's a plain house wife that serves them snacks at our house. 

Growing up, my mom never left for work and do the house chores most of the time. 

Seldom have we had conversations regarding her education or work before they get married. 

My mom is a Librarian, 
She graduated with a Bachelor Degree of Education major in Library Science. 
She was a Scholar. 
She lives in a very big Family.
Her parents went abroad. 
She never took the Board Exam.
She worked in a University, also in Special Libraries. 
She met my father and has 5 kids and works at home 24/7 with no rest days.

I think these experiences made her what she is right now and only few people can relate how living with a Librarian mom looks like. 

So I listed down interesting things which a librarian mother or kids with parents working in a library can relate.

5 Things Only Kids Whose Parent is a Librarian will understand:

1. The way they Discipline their Children. 

Many people misinterpret how Librarians discipline their clients in the Libraries. Maybe because for some reasons that...
They shout more often.
They give notices and penalties.
They reprimand. 
They smile at people as if they knew each other, which may looks creepy at some point.
Their eyebrows meet when someone caught their attention.  

At home, they do the same thing. They are the same person. 
They shout and punish you when you do something wrong.
They give you less allowance if they are short and give you a lot when they feel rich...
They explain to you what went wrong. 
They are also friendly to the neighbors.'

And by the time their eyebrows meet, you must know how to behave and should never-ever answers back. All of these are true but they are not bad as you think. 

In fact, they are the most rewarding kind of people I knew.

2. They give Importance to Budgeting.

I think the secret is that my mom goes to the market almost every day. She gets the budget from the apartment's rent and also from Dad's salary. She hates it when everything doesn't goes well to the budget. 

I remember she used to tell me that when I become a Librarian, budgeting is one of most vital parts of work. One must be knowledgeable and have enough experience in the field.

3. They are the Best Cook.

My mom cooks 2-3 meals a day. 
She had her practice when she was still young, from the help of cookbooks she read in the library and food magazines as well.   

4. They know how to Plan Ahead.

All mothers are not perfect, they have imperfections as well.

And that’s why my mom loves to plan ahead. I was thinking maybe she planned making me a librarian after all or else I will never have the chance to work abroad and earn for myself.

5. They will be your number 1 Support.

I've been to so many jobs within 3 years, from BPO industries and from different types of Libraries. But my mom never left my side, she supported me in every decisions I make. I know she believes in me more than myself.

I remember the day when I asked mom, what if I failed to pass the Licensure Examination. I think it would be really hard for me to accept it and because I really tried my best and it will be the best gift for my Birthday. I was really worried and stressed that time waiting if I will pass or not. Mom knows I will pass. She even told me than It would be harder for her if I failed.

I took the exam first time and passed.  She asked me to enroll for a Master’s Degree and helps me paying the tuition.

Everything I owe to her. 
I will never be thankful enough.
and I thank God I have a Librarian Mom.
