Motherhood - a job without promotion

Being a new mother I dreamt of becoming a free mother after my child gets completely potty trained,but someone reminded me that a mom is always a mom. 

My mom is a simple lady who balanced household chores and her career with such finesse. So what if she could cook a delicious meal and achieve a  PHD in economics,she is a mom. My conversations with her.....

Me at 5 : Amma that doll is so pretty. Even she has it. Please Amma...please please please Amma...Ammma..

Amma: We will think about it in the vacation.

Amma probably thought:  I wish I had a tape...when will she grow up!

Me at 8 : Amma you keep asking me to study. I want to play.

Amma : Just finish this chapter and you can run outside.

Amma probably thought: Do you think I am enjoying going through verbs and adverbs all over again? I wish I could watch TV.

Me at 10 : Amma why can't you be sweeter. Her mom speaks so sweetly to us.

Amma : Silence 

Amma probably thought: Let me first get a hang of gender in Hindi.

Me at 13 :  Amma I told you I am coming in 5 minutes for lunch. Why did you call me sternly in front of my friends?!

Amma : Just finish your lunch. Its late.

Amma probably thought : I know what your 5 minutes mean. When will I wind up the kitchen and take a nap!

Me at 15 : AMMA HE IS JUST A FRIEND...WHY CAN'T YOU UNDERSTAND!!!

Amma : Sweetheart I understand. Everyone won't.

Amma probably thought : This is teenage and I've to protect you.

Me at 16: NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME!!!!I WANT TO GO TO A HOSTEL...

Appa : Why can't you both stop fighting!

Amma : Finish your 12th, then you can.

Amma probably thought : These hormones!!!

First day of hostel

Me : Tears

Amma : Tears

Me at 20 : Amma why don't you wear cotton sarees often. You should also wear salwar kameez more. Try this lipstick.

Amma : I will someday.

Amma probably thought : I am what I am. Can't change. But I appreciate you dressing up.

Me at 23 : I love him and will marry him.

Amma thought and said : Take your time. Don't rush. Things will fall in place.

Me immediately after marriage : ( On phone ) Amma tell me again what do I have grind for that masala.

Amma : ( At work ) Excuse me everyone...        ( whispers ) coconut, jeera and chilly...sorry everyone.

Amma probably thought : What a timing!!!

Me post marriage :  Yes Amma...Yes Amma...how many times will you ask the same question!

Amma : okok

Me : When will you come next? When will you come next?

Amma : Soon dear.

Amma probably thought : Natraj, she won't let us enjoy our retired romantic rocking life.

And the conversations will continue eternally...

So ladies whatever you are...a homemaker, a doctor or a teacher, if you are a mom be ready to be scrutinized at every step.
