Moms aren't Moms they are Super Mom's

Posted by DeeDee at 10:00 AM
4 weeks back, my mom had a fall at home, after which she had a small surgery and had her left hand plastered for 4 weeks.

Now, me being "the girl" of the family, obviously, I am her successor in doing the household chores.

Incidentally, around the same time, the maid of my house ran off for her summer vacation leaving me alone.

Trust me, in so many years, I only cook on weekends or when no one is at home and I cook all exotic dishes.

Now, suddenly
Cleaning the house
Washing clothes
Washing the dishes
Going to work
Taking care of mom (since she couldn't do a thing by herself)

Exhausted, is a very small word to describe the feeling. I felt like breaking down and crying so many times.

My nice, supportive family quietly ate any crap I made.
God, What to make? What not to make everyday is another big pain on the wrong side.

Go buy veggies
Clean and Cut them
Search Google and find an easy recipe
Mess up the taste
Feel bad, then give up

Super Mom to the Rescue
I have no idea how our mom's did it. And the kind of nasty kid that I was, I would have strangled myself. How the hell did she manage to do all this,

get the little maniac me ready
endure all my dad's tantrums
drop me in the baby-sitting,
go to work,
quietly endure a monster mother-in-law,
attend all the family obligations
keep family happy and
still smile

If i were her I would have gone insane or wailed or just given up and walked off

Our Moms aren't Mom's they are Super-Mom's

True that. Mom is away for a while now and I have to manage the household chores. It was so hectic, doing it for two days that I was actually looking forward to a Monday at work, where I can temporarily escape from all this. I wonder how she's been doing it all these years. Sigh!

Everytime my mom goes to native, I am overwhelmed with all the tasks I have to do. Most of the times I m grumpy and very frustrated. How do moms manage to do it so well :O

Moms are great.

Ashwini trust me, Moms make it look so easy and I want to slap myself for never bothering to help her all these years

DEE DEE on June 5, 2014 at 12:12 AM said...

Megha Moms really are....In future I know I can never match her..or any of our moms

Well written post! I went through the same feeling when I got married and started handling the household by myself. Even when it was only me and my hubby, there was so much to do. I wondered how the hell my mom managed that too in a joint family.

Frankly, there have been a lot of days when I missed her so much that I cried myself to sleep thinking of her while poor hubby tries to console me. Moms are the reason I believe God exists.

DEE DEE on June 10, 2014 at 12:30 PM said...

Gods cant be everywhere so He made moms

V. Archana on June 14, 2014 at 1:02 AM said...

Very true.. Mom are super women. Wish you mom a speedy recovery.

I had never cooked at my house.. My mom would do everything. I feel guilty about not helping her in the kitchen. Now being married and settled in the US,I do everything.. :(

V. Archana on June 14, 2014 at 1:02 AM said...

Totally agree with you on that :)

DEE DEE on June 16, 2014 at 11:49 AM said...

Archana, Thanks..She is recovering well
We dont realise people's importance until they stop being them

OMG! You know I have been through soemthing of similar sort too in the past. What we all used to do as a team- I realized that time mom did all that alone. And when she was out of station for sometime and I couldn't cook properly I remember weeping badly in a corner missing her like anything! Moms are truly super-moms. I still wonder how do they manage everything on their own! Love the image you have shared here! :)

DEE DEE on June 18, 2014 at 5:07 PM said...

Its seriously somethng to think about..How do they become super moms///some day some time they might have been like us...

At times things happen all together and we are at our wits end. But I agree on one thing: 21 Gun Salutes to All the Mothers in this world

DEE DEE on June 29, 2014 at 11:29 PM said...

Yes Haddock :-)

Camila Rafaela Felippi on July 2, 2014 at 11:36 PM said...

My mom is addicted to cleaning. Now that I live alone I'm understanding why :b

DEE DEE on July 3, 2014 at 11:22 AM said...

:D we all understand the hardships when mom isnt around
