A mom is always judged. It starts, right from the moment the baby is given to her after birth.
“Asiee pakarye, aap sahi nahi pakarai”
(Hold the baby properly, your way is not fine)
I know what my child likes to eat, so why give me tips on ‘how to make a green smoothie’? Its great your child enjoys it & I’m almost reevaluating my parenting techniques. But, if my child does not want all kale daily, please excuse me.
I’m a real mom, and I cant feed the kids ‘all organic’ 365 days. I do tend to make them some peanut butter jam sandwich for dinner at times.
Its OK if my kids do not study 24/7 during exams. They wont get a 10/10. No issues. I’m looking for , overall “Progress” here. It’s not just about the books and cramming for me. I even let my kids, watch some TV or read a book or enjoy some ‘me’ time on the computer. Yes, before the exam.
I have taken a few trips with my husband, and ‘left’ my kids with my parents. Trust me a couple needs to be a couple once in every few years. I love being a mom. I also love being a wife. Although, its been many years since we left our kids, I really think a four day ‘kid-free’ vacation is what I need.
Does that make me a bad mum? No, it doesn’t. (Well, that’s what I think!) It’s not easy for me, I miss them. But, I don’t regret taking the holidays I took. It’s been 4 years and I do not see any happening in the near future;)
Have you ever been judged vocally about being a mum? All that, I have shared is a part of what someone said to me.
