Who would have thought that being a mother is exhausted? My mom never told me that.
As long as I live, I always see her get everything done in order and the way she wanted. The pile of laundries, the stacks of dirty dishes, not to mention she needed to cook and cleaned the house all by herself. And she worked. What a mom!
When I was a kid, I remembered, I thought my mom was a snow white, because she has a fair skin, well at least compared to me hahaha, the way she speaks, her gestures and many more. She was and is, my wonder woman.
Now, I look at my life as a mother of 1, and I think I am a wonder woman, too. I wonder where I should start first, every day. I wonder how to get everything done. Really, a mother is a tough job. It is tougher than my job as a teacher, cabin crew, even a hotelier. This so called assignment, asked 24/7 of your time. Demand your time and consume you. I made it sound scary, didn’t I?
Don’t get me wrong, I love being a mother, despite all the chaos things happen in my little house. It is the highest achievement I could ever have in my life.
I just learn how to cook when I had a baby. I was literally started cooking when Arin Aksa hit 6 months old, because he already started to eat solid food by then. I cook for my husband, too. And surprisingly, he loves my cooking, even not all of them.
I tried to wake up early in the morning, but still fail in doing it lately as I love to sleep, obviously. I went to the market after I woke up, cleaned up the house after I reached home, if Arin had not wake up yet. And the rest, I still try to do things when my baby awakes. Not that easy, you know.
At least, I can clean the house, cook and take a quick shower everyday hahha. I am not the best, as I said, but I know I will get better every day. And besides, I can get to look at my son every minute every day, watching him grows, in front of my eyes. His smile and my husbands are my best medicine so far. Oh and hugs will do, too.
So, who’s with me?
Oh, how I wish my mom is here sometimes….
