Oh! It’s 6 am already, and here are the tasks for the day:
- Finishing cup of warm coffee
- Getting a quick shower
- Preparing breakfast for everyone
- Giving my toddler a bath
- Feeding the baby healthy meals
- Cook meals for the family
- And a whole lot of things.
The moment I sit down to have the first sip of my coffee, my toddler begins to cry as he wants to snuggle with me. I’m sure most of the moms can relate to it. You can’t ignore your toddler’s tears, right! Because a jovial morning is what we all ask for, and after spending a few minutes with my baby, all the tasks of the day get delayed eventually.
Lately, we get so involved in our duties, like winding up all the household chores, managing groceries, and taking care of our little one that we completely forget about our priorities. We, mothers, tend to become careless toward ourselves as a result. For this, we are rewarded with the quick ageing process, the stress of doing everything perfectly and on time, and in most of the cases, we gain weight out of stress too. As the day ends, we mentally prepare for the tasks of the next day and start thinking about what to cook, what vegetables to buy and what pulses and grains to stock up on.
The struggles that mothers face are real. They rarely get a helping hand when it comes to managing the duties of the house. We have allowed our bodies to serve the physical, mental and emotional needs of our families constantly. As a mother, I cannot completely break the chain of how things were in the old day and how today they are carried out as a tradition. Moms are the only ones doing each and everything, but I can definitely bring a change by teaching my son to get involved as much as he can in every aspect of building the house and society.
This, in my opinion, will be the best resolution on Mother’s Day. We need to think about ourselves in every aspect be it physically, mentally or emotionally because
we are the homemakers, providers of our family, the first teachers to our kids, and one of the strongest pillars of the family.
Pass it on, mothers!
