Ups and Downs of Motherhood
by Ruchi Gupta Bookmark and Share
 
“Enjoy every moment, time flies fast”. These were the words from an elderly women who was just behind me in the check out counter of a grocery store.
 
These words made me thinking, Really? I should enjoy each and every moment? Few minutes before my 3 years old was throwing tantrums as she wanted to buy every candy when we passed candy aisle. She was screaming on top of her voice to get whatever she wanted.

I thought of asking that super kind heart women, 'Do you think I should enjoy that moment too? C’mon just be little realistic and tell the truth, did you really enjoy the situations like this when your kids were young? If yes then you are super duper women, you have something extra that makes you enjoy these tantrums.'
 
Should I feel guilty that I am not enjoying this moment with my kid? I really want time should fly away at this moment, I just want to run away to get little peace I just want line should get shorten fast and I will check out my things quickly go home and let TV babysit my 3 years old and I will have some time for myself to settle down my angry emotions.

I enjoy playing with my kids I cherish their activities but its too much to say that enjoy each and every moment.

After going through so much of all these emotions I thought of taking some break or may be I wanted to mention this to my hubby that I want some self time.

I really want to wake up late, have nice tea no cooking no work have ice creams, read books, watch movies, just bundle up in comfy couch and watch shows, go out and have a nice walk, talk with old college friends have junk food and want to catch up with so many other things that I think are left behind.

I know its not possible after having two kids and engaged in their different schedules for different activities, but what is the harm in thinking.

I thought of giving it a try and proceeding ahead with this try, At night on dinner table I announced my plan to everyone. “Listen guys, I am planning to go for a vacation for a week, Dad will be here to help both of you”.

Everyone was having dinner, as soon as they heard this, My 3 years old said, “Wait mommy let me wear my shoes, you hold my hand and cross the road, its very dark outside”.
 
My 8 years old said, “Mommy after 3 days I have to submit my project, I have not yet started, just come back in one day”

And my dear hubby said “Honey ! I think it’s a good idea, you can enjoy your time, refresh your mind, read books, write poems. Let me know where you want to go, I will book the tickets”.

After a naughty pause he said “Wait a minute, I have to take some days off and it’s a good idea to join you.”

I couldn’t stop my laughter and friends those words from that elderly women started resonating in my ears again. “Enjoy every moment, time flies fast”
