Sibulelo Manamatela has revealed how grateful she is for her mother.
She made this known in a recent social media post on her personal social media handle on the popular social media platform, Instagram.
The post she made reads;
“Mangaliso & grandma Thembs. ❤️
I’m so grateful for my mother. I wouldn’t be the mom I am, without her. I copy and paste from her parenting manual all the time and I still consult, just to make sure.
Some could even argue that I do it too much. 🤦🏾♀️
But I never needed my mother as much as I have since becoming a parent and I have never leaned on her as much either (in adulthood ). I also didn’t have as much understanding towards her, as I do now.
Becoming a mom myself really made me realise what a great job she did, raising us alone. I also started seeing her as a human being and woman; instead of a mom-bot who we usually require perfection from. I think she views me differently now too and trusts me, as a person, so much more. Our relationship has become so much better and I’m so grateful for that.
Did becoming a parent change your relationship with your parents? If so, how?”
