Things change when you become a mom. You start cherishing the single thing which you never cared about, Time!. You learn the value of every minute, and time is something every mom desires deep inside. A peaceful nap, even if it’s only for a few moments, coffee without a tiny human dangling around your legs, undistracted cooking, talking to your mom with no distraction, are few of the things which I truly miss.
Bathroom suddenly becomes the most loved place in your home. A place where you can find some peace. Shower becomes your place of rescue from all the madness.
Having said all that, your kids are your world and the crazy weird part is you are okay missing all the things you love. Look at us. Mommyhood brainwashed us :). But, let’s hold on to our little ones. They will grow up soon and finally when you have TIME; there will be only memories. So let’s make good memories happen.
However, I have realized that it is so important to plan and get organized when you have a growing family. Cooking and cleaning are the most time-consuming task. I like a clean house, who doesn’t?, but when I stress about keeping it clean and organized, I tell myself that ‘either you can have kids or a clean house.’ All my worries then magically seem to disappear. Hey, and the second dialogue which you have to remind yourself, again and again, is, ‘ I don’t care what people think.’ Believe me, it helps :).
Now, you cannot avoid cooking if you prefer to eat at home. At such times having a list of easy and quick fix recipes on your refrigerator is a life saver. This spicy sausage, fried chicken with herbs, naan pizza or french bread pizza takes less than 30 minutes to make.
