I had a great career before I became a stay at home mum (SAHM). I was flying as a Lead Cabin attendant with a leading Airline in India. I loved my work completely. I was so addicted to the awesome lifestyle it gave me, that I never thought I would ever stop doing it for any other job in the world, until I got tied up in this special one. But in the beginning, I didn’t know if I would love staying at home and not getting up to go to “work” every day, earning a pay check, flying to different cities everyday, partying hard, shopping like crazy.
Life isn’t easy with a new born baby. Life with a newborn and becoming a Stay at home mom at the same time gave me a double trouble. I went through all the feels as they say. I missed my job. I missed my routine. I knew evrything about the job I did, but had absolutely no clue as to how to be a mother and how to be a wife all at the same time. Absolutely no clue. But like most things in life, you just figure things out.
With each passing day, I became more confident. I kept praying, and life just got better. Every day it did, and two and a half years later, it still does. I learned that although different, this life of being a stay-at-home mom has some amazing perks. However, it took me a while to get here to this place of sanity and happiness.
Dear New Stay-at-home mom,
You would feel really lonely at first, but soon it will get better. You may feel like you have lost your mind, but it will get better. There would be some really hard days, when you feel nothing is going as planned, and everything is going out of your hand, but it will get better. On certain days you would forget almost everything, from whether you had a bath to whether you ate your food, but don’t worry, your memory will return one day. Maybe not just yet, but it will get better.
The structure or lack thereof of your days is going to be an ever-changing anomaly, but it will get better.
If you’re breastfeeding, it’s going to feel like you are a just nursing around the clock, but it will get better. You would feel like you would never get to sleep in peace again, but it will get better. You may feel you will never be able to have a bath or pee without an audience, but it will get better. You would feel like you would never wear any of your favorite old clothes again, but it will get better.

I strongly believe in breaking all the stereotype ways of parenting.
For me parenting is all about love and fun. My girls and I believe in jamming out in the car, in dancing in the rains, and in miracles. We believe in smiling till our cheek hurt and laughing till our neighbours’ ears burst. Parenting definitely comes with loads of challenges,but trust me facing these challenges becomes much more easier by having a fun and a happy attitude towards it.
