The Armenian Mother – Creature of Love, Habit and Cleanliness.

Oh and it’s so true.

By Nathalie Nourian via ianyan Mag

I don’t think that I’m alone in saying that Armenian mothers are a unique bunch. They are caring, nurturing and love their children with all their hearts. Well, almost. Because, you see, there is one thing that the Armenian mother holds paramount above all else, and that is cleanliness. Whoever came up with the phrase, “cleanliness is next to godliness,” had an Armenian mother in mind.

From the time that her child is old enough to comprehend the world, the Armenian mother will begin a campaign and lifelong mission to ensure that cleaning – the work of it and the art of it – are to be on top of the child’s mind, at all times. Never should a moment pass when dust is not being swept away or bleach is not whitening table linens. Never should laundry sit untouched for a few days, nor dishes soak in the sink unwashed.
