Being A Stay At Home Mum

This simple term stay-at-home mom comes with heavy responsibility. If you were once a career oriented and ambitious mom and now at home, then the surge of emotions and feelings gets doubled.

Being A Stay At Home Mum

No doubt that to turn into a full time mom, has its own bundle of joy and contentment.

And it mostly feels worth it. But yes, understanding a mom is something yet to be learnt. Way to go.

Regardless of whether a woman is a mother or not, her duty towards the home and the society around never lessens up. And child brings its own set of new duties and tasks to be performed by his/her dear mum.

Mothers are the ones who by default look after child’s education, health and mannerisms. Mums are the cozy corners where kids hide when sad or frightened. They are the comfort cushions where kids rest when unwell. They are the tale weavers for them at night and make life as if, a wonderland. And they are the Hitlers to make them unlearn something notorious or follow a particular discipline. But this whole process do drench out mum’s energy and patience. And at times faith in themselves too, that they are capable of doing anything (which they were once expert in doing). And that moment, what all is needed is a gentle word or a simple hug. A hearty candid talk, a quality hour spent with them. Try this and it surely will do wonders.

With all this, we don’t defy that fathers (or other members of the house) are not important or co-operative. They do form an integral part of the home. They are somebody, kids look up to. Just that they should accept the fact that there is somebody their age at home, who has loads to share and yes all the more eagerness to listen. Mothers become vulnerable easily. Try absorbing the heat, douse the blaze….

We all know, men are less talkative and expressive. But do give it a shot, for someone equally knowledgeable, intelligent, capable and after all because they are your life partners. Any change which might (and I’m sure it will) turn things brighter and adds to more zeal in life is worth it.

I’m very lucky to have my partner as my alter ego, who thinks alike, helps me in all the things, shares my hobbies and interest and is always an ear away for my never ending talks.

This is all what I opine. Your suggestions and thoughts are most welcome. I’m too just an ear away.

  • My mom and for most part my wife have worked from home. I don’t think the term ” Stay at home mom” is correct for there are no stay at home moms, only ” Work at Home and work from home & office moms”. I am yet to find a mom who just stays at home. I hope I make some sense on this sensitive topic.

  • “Mothers are the ones who by default look after child’s education, health and mannerisms. Mums are the cozy corners … ” – Love this whole paragraph. I want to write it on a poster, add a pretty picture of myself there, and paste it in my son’s room. 😛 Beautifully written! Maybe, I will add a smaller one of my “alter ego” too. 🙂
