17 Essential New Year’s Resolutions for Egyptian Mothers

We love our dear mothers for tolerating our unnecessary drama, bad grades, continuous nagging, never finding our clothes when it’s right in front of us, refusing to do the dishes and choosing the wrong people to fall in love with, but mommies of Egypt, you need to promise us to consider these new year’s resolutions because we’ve kind of had enough.
