‘As a mother, what would you do?’ asks Princess Haya of Jordan
HRH Princess Haya bint al Hussein writes about what being a mother means to her
Words by HRH Princess Hayabint al Hussein of Jordan
‘I recently attended a baby shower at which, among the gifts, the mother-to-be opened a greetings card like none I had ever seen before. The front of the card was innocuous enough, with a photograph of a sleeping baby and a message, ‘A baby is God’s Sweetest Gift.’ Inside, the card had a button adorned with a picture of a musical note and marked, ‘press’.
‘Aaaaw,’ cooed the mother-to-be, smiling up at the women who surrounded her as she pressed the button. But instead of the soothing lullaby notes she might have expected, the piercing cry of a recorded baby rang out from the card.
‘Very funny,’ she said, pushing the button again in an attempt to silence it.
The crying crescendoed, and her smile quickly became a frown. Turning the card over, she continued to press the button, frantic now, desperately trying to make the noise stop. Each time she pressed it, the volume of the crying increased.
‘Okay, this isn’t funny anymore,’ she said. ‘Who bought this? How do I turn it off?’ Nobody owned up, but the crying baby card was passed around the room as various women shook it, pressed it, hit it and eventually stamped on it. One by one, the women gave up, stumped as they failed to quiet the baby’s cries, each more piercing than the last. Meanwhile, the mother-to-be was becoming increasingly agitated.
‘Really cuts through you, doesn’t it?’ she said to me, quietly.
