When I look in the mirror – Mom diaries
“Affffaaaan wake up”, this scream marks the start of a beautiful and pleasant day for me followed by
a series of whining and cries by my 4-year-old. I always thought life after marriage is going to be a
ball with dinner dates every other day, no tension about assignments and I can write as much as I
But I seemed to have forgotten itsy bitsy detail related to motherhood. The irony of life is when I look in the mirror I see myself as a mother who’s working hard each day to raise a gentleman. I see myself as a wife who’s not a big fan of Eggplant but still, makes Eggplant every week just because her husband loves it.
I also see a sister who’s always there for her siblings to give them advice and to suggest them the best in life. I see a daughter who realizes her parents are the best in the world but I regret not being there when my mom needs a shopping partner. Or when my dad is all tired and wishes he would retire.
Behind all these images I saw a little me hidden and scared to come out. The “me” that loves to write and would give up a night’s sleep just to write. It sure isn’t easy when you have a 4-year-old kid who would stop doing everything and come to help you with your work. The "me" who is passionate

That’s one reason I give to my husband whenever he complains about me sleeping too much. I believe there is no certain thing as sleeping too much because the person will obviously wake up when his ready to function again. If you dare to wake a person especially a woman before that you
If you dare to wake a person especially a woman before that you might end up awakening a Godzilla and that’s my story every morning. Last and most importantly I wish to freeze the clock for an hour or so to have some me time to watch TV, read a good book or just to enjoy a cup of coffee.
It’s the bitter truth that I see a distorted image of myself when I look in the mirror over powered by my relations. In the race of keeping everyone happy, I forgot to please “me” the most important of my reflection.
