To all the mums who fake it…

… about motherhood being the greatest joy! Happy mother’s day.

This is a toast to all the dysfunctional mothers out there… who hardly ever get it right;

Who know that what they do could be done a hundred times better;

Who would rather sleep in late than cook up a wholesome breakfast;

Who’d rather take their scrabble turns than read to their child;

Who would jump at an opportunity to leave their child with a friend to get a pedicure;

And who still manage to manipulate their children into blind adoration, or grudging respect;

Cheers! You deserve to put your feet up and sip on a vodka.

What we do, even if only reluctantly, is more than what mere humans were meant to do.

    Love it ! I consciously did not even wish my mother… I had just had a major fight with her a couple of days ago and I know she would scoff at me if I wished her on mother’s day !!

    Ohhhhhhhhhhh Yaaaaaaaa. Beautifully said

    Now I can stop feeling guilty, I swear. I have to admit the best Mum stuff I do nowadays is cuddle them after they’re fast asleep, making up for a long day of saying ‘No’ , ‘Later’ and ‘Do u think I’m yr maid?’

I would love to hear your feedback. So write to me: umm.of.on@gmail.com
