The concept of weekdays and weekends doesn’t exist for me any more!
I don’t remember the last time I sat and read a book on a Sunday afternoon!
REASON: I AM A NEW MOTHER
And a Working Mother!!!
Thus, the weekdays are all about work and a couple of hours with the baby!
The weekdays usually end at 8:30 PM, when I bring my daughter to sleep in the bedroom and I PASS OUT next to her (only to wake up to rush to work again)!
And, if it’s 8 am and I am still in my pyjamas, then my daughter announces with absolute joy-“today is Deepa mumma’s holiday!” (Read weekends/holidays)
On the holidays, she becomes like a physical extension of me!!!
We do everything together!
In fact, to be precise, I do everything as per her wishes!
These weekends are the most fulfilling of all but then by the time it’s 6 pm, my body and mind have given up and I NEED MY ME TIME!
But it was never to be!
What’s so special about today???
The husband returned home from Sea (got a Captain of the ship for a husband)!
The daughter has decided to switch sides and “my papa is always best” is the NEW ANTHEM in my house!
I am way too smart to sulk over the lost importance!😈😜
I handed over the daughter’s supervision to the husband and nanny took over (thank god for the nanny! Sometimes, I feel I love her more than I love my husband! 😉🤭🤫)
I read almost half my Laini Taylor-Daughter of Smoke and Bone (just the kind of light read I needed)!
I drank my Chai while it was still hot!
Indulged in a shower with another chai in my bath!
But the best was yet to come- I had an hours nap at 4 PM!
At 5 PM was woken up with my daughter sitting on my tummy, saying-
“Deepa Mumma time for park and you have to take me to the park! I won’t go to park without you! “
“AND I AM GOING TO GO TO THE PARK FOR SURE”
The honeymoon for today ended but on a wonderful note!
Wonderful note, because, I can’t seem to decide what I want!!!
I love my “me time” and when I get it, I am never too sure about it!🙈🙈
THE HUSBAND WAS UTILISED TO ITS FULLEST POTENTIAL 😉😉
