Being a Working Mother, I am Happy With This Life in Lockdown!
The mode of my day depends on my little one’s mood. If the day starts with her alarm, then the rest of the day, I am anxious about her well being and I am on a ‘dull’ mode. If it blooms with her smile, it gives me the happiness to work for the entire day, which indeed switches my day to ‘zestful’ mode.
I was a little hesitant to join work after my maternity leave. My mind was continuously struggling to choose between the question to join again, enhance my professional life and being with my baby before she grows up too quickly.
Although I made my mind to join work after maternity leaves, initially, I missed my baby terribly. But when I used to rush back home after work to see her smiling face, I felt better, I felt my tiredness vanishing. I always wished to be by her side to capture her every single step and to be a part of joys and sorrows.
Quarantine days have put an end to my mental struggle. Now I can spend enough time with my angel before I switch to my ‘work mode’. At the same time, it is easy for me to find time to exercise and be fit and also do those little things like experiment with cooking that makes me happy. I never imagined that working with my little one beside would be so much fun.
But as every coin has two sides; although I am happy that l am with my little one, I miss being with my excellent colleagues – the fun-filled coffee breaks, the happy lunch hours, the chit chats that kept us lively and my travel adventures to office.
As the present situation demand only housebound activities, let us all stay home, break the chain and hope for the best.
