Parenthood, Actually: Mama or Ima?
By The Crazy Baby Mama on April 28, 2011
Wanting to raise a child in a bilingual home, Sarah of The Crazy Baby Mama didn't realize that might mean that her daughter wouldn't ever call her mama. She talks about how it makes her feel in the middle of the night when she's woken up for Cheerios and a name that isn't mama.
It isn’t because I’ve been shaken awake at an unholy hour. For Cheerios.
It isn’t because my husband snores serenely beside me in our bed while our daughter whines from her bedroom.
It’s the word: Ima. And the fact that my daughter’s default language is Hebrew.
