O for Ointments
O in Mother is for… Ointments
When you become a mother, your bathroom cabinets and drawers contain less beauty products (who has time) and is replaced with assorted ointments and elixirs.

Some of them were smelly, some were gooey and others were downright disgusting, but I always felt better after a dose of mom’s home remedy, a kiss on the cheek and a reassuring word.
