No mummy mummy please!!!!
Motherhood Oh flattering Motherhood!!
When someone says that, motherhood is a beautiful joyride, full of overwhelming moments,I just laugh allowed because,after being a mother to twins ( naughty & mischevious) ,the definition of motherhood has altered for me. Motherhood is that rollercoaster ride of different and difficult emotions that makes you weird and insane.
These days living as a mommy of two hyper toddlers has changed my world upside down.No doubt that,I get appreciation and heed for what I do as a mother but, does that relieve me from my responsibilities/duties? Is there any way I can free myself from my full time mommy job?
When I think of one thing from which I could free myself, immediately one by one my mommylicious commitments flash in front of me.
I always imagine getting a day to free myself from motherhood! (That is a beautiful emotion but, to be honest, sometimes it sucks me as an exhausting baggage.)
How I wish a day that begins with, me sipping a hot cup of tea, sitting in the balcony, adoring the fresh breeze!
Without worrying about the kids waking up and being cranky.
How I wish to cook a scrumptious meal for myself without any disturbance or annoyance!
How I wish to just cuddle up on the sofa doing nothing,listening to my favorite music, without any wee-wee waa-waa in the background!
How I wish to spend a day without that potty-cleaning job!
How I wish to actually get rid of the mumma-mumma song for a day!
How I wish to spend a day alone , calling and gossiping with my friends for hours without hiding in the washroom (from kids obviously)!
How I wish to go out and party without any worry and guilt of leaving my kids at home!
How I wish to take a warm bath for hours, without the kids screeching out for me, standing at the bathroom door!
How I wish to read a book without breaks for feeding and entertaining my kids! (and yelling 'leave me alone for sometime')
How I wish to cherish an old hobby and getting some time for self-pampering!
How I wish to not get judged by anybody for being a good or bad mother!
I know my words might be a raspy confession to many but, not all us mothers somewhere yearn for that perfect 'me time'. There are thus, many commitments in a single motherhood that I want to be guiltlessly free from, at least for day. Don't we all mothers crave for such escapade?
PS - These confessions are as good as a self-talk because motherhood is such a vivid feeling that, you can't live without it,even for a day!!
