Super Mom

supermom

It’s been 2 weeks since Maya left to her home town to fix some problems she’s been having over there & she’s supposed to come back on the 1st of June, before Ramadan. I hope/pray that she will come back on time & won’t do the usual thing (ignoring us & staying home).

I know I don’t work but taking care of Baby Jana is a 24/7 job,literally. I don’t let Maya touch her at all (well, only if she wants to play with her while she’s on the ground or in her bed). I do everything, feed her, change, bathe her, play with her & keep an eye on her all the time. no one can really comprehend the stress & energy babies cause to their mothers unless you’re a real mother & by that I mean taking care of your baby all by yourself without relying on your maid (if you’re a stay home mom).

I’m trying to manage house chores (cleaning, ironing, washing the dishes & clothes, etc) but thank god I’m living at my dad’s house because our house help is doing all the cooking. I can’t even imagine what would I’ve done if I didn’t have someone cooking for us. I’d let my husband starve πŸ˜›

I’m also trying to manage my blogging life (YES, I LOVE BLOGGING, ATTENDING EVENTS & SO. Leave your hateful comment to yourself haters coz they won’t affect me & I will continue blogging until I decide to stop, NOT YOU). Blogging has become an addiction to me. It’s fun, gives more experience in life & how to handle/deal with people/things. It’s making me more social & it’s showing me the good people from the bad. I’m loving it.

But the thing is, when the night comes, I become very exhausted. Even when I stay home & don’t go out or do anything at all (yup, on gloomy days I ignore some chores). And sometimes I don’t feel like getting out of bed & that becomes more stressful when Juju wants to play & have fun. She’s becoming more active these days mashallah & wants to move all around the place or go outside just to look at the cars passing by.

The Horror movie I may face the next week or so is when I start working. Yes, I may (not sure) start work within few days. That wasn’t expected at all but suddenly the Ministry of Education wants to recruit me now when they’ve told me more than once that I will start work on September *cries*. I’m a bit excited (Hello Salary) but at the same time stressed & worried. What will I do without Maya? How will I handle Juju & the house at the same time? I know it will be for a short period of time but it’s gonna be really hectic.

GOD HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL

    i feel for you and i think what you are doing is great taking care of your family and home, and still making sure to keep your individuality by doing the things you love such as blogging

    BUT you said (no one can really comprehend the stress & energy babies cause to their mothers unless you’re a real mother & by that I mean taking care of your baby all by yourself without relying on your maid (if you’re a stay home mom).) . Not everyone want or have the option to be a stay at home mom. they are just as good of mothers as a stay at home mom. I don’t think you purposefully and intentionally meant to say that “real moms” are those who devote all their time to their babies, period, no exceptions. So maybe edit that word out.

    keep doing what you’re doing, and I’m sure with time you will find the right balance for your own life style.

    • I was only talking about the stay home moms who take care of their babies by themselves. Working mothers are another issue I will talk about when I start working. But you know, hearing your baby cries 5 times & wanting to play all the time, not to mention change her clothes every now & then can be really stressful. At least working mothers can take a break & enjoy some quality time at work with their colleagues (not all ofcourse).

      When I said real mother, I meant those who handle the baby by themselves. There are lots of stay home mothers who don’t do a thing at all!

  2. Mashalah Sara , you are doing a really great job & you are an amazing mother , no one can blame you cus I know how it is hard to deal with house , baby, husband and blogging which agree 100% that you should keep doing what you like , I don`t have kids yet & I have a maid still I feel that I don`t time .

    Enshalah everything will be just the way you wanted πŸ™‚ I am wondering , what is wrong with those haters ?? I thought it is only me ?? hehehe I don`t know why the keep telling me bedal el hyata g3day jablay beetich !! ha shtaboon ?? πŸ˜› I agree with you regarding the blogging thing , we meet lots of people 7 at least we are doing something usuful & not wasting our time on silly stuff

    Keep going & I know U can do a really good job

    • Thank you for your nice words dear πŸ™‚

      oh yeah, they keep on telling me that & that im not watching my baby & not taking care of her because of my blogging life! 3naaaad I will keep on blogging πŸ˜€

    Well whether Maya comes or not i suggest you enroll Juju to a daycare (ones with camera where u can access and see her at any time)

  4. You should be proud of yourself for what you’re doing. I’m also a stay at home Mom, I left my job 3 months before I became pregnant with Banoota and didn’t bother looking for a job when I found out I was pregnant and here I am now with the busiest job ever, taking care of Banoota and like you, I didn’t let the help touch her when I had one, she left when Banoota was 3 months old (it drives me crazy when they think they are irreplaceable oo ye8lon adabhoom) so I have a part-timer which comes for 3 to 4 hours, 4 times a week so it’s been madness.

    So even if the house isn’t super-ly clean, even if your lunch isn’t all that fancy, you are doing an amazing job just by taking care of your little one and ensuring she always has a smile on her face and is properly cared for.

    And as for blogging, just because you have a baby doesn’t mean your life stops! There is no reason you can’t do both and nothing wrong with taking her along with you to events. Lots of moms work full-time and have littles one and they’re doing a great job too – it’s all about the balance. If I were you, I’d look into finding a nanny/nurse and making sure that he is with a relative in the house while you’re at work but have the nanny deal with all the baby stuff. You can also get one of those camera’s which you can link to your iPhone to keep your eyes on her and check in from time to time.

    Good luck and remember to always be proud and not to let people put you down.
    (sorry this was long but it drives me crazy when people put mothers who do it all down with silly reasoning)

    • You can write as much as you want πŸ˜€

      I have my grandma’s nanny, she’s been with us for over 20 years & she can be fully trusted, she practically raised us all & she loved Juju alot. I’ll be taking her to my granma’s house everyday & I hope my work will be near by nshallah!

      As for blogging! I get alot of hate comments accusing me of not taking care of my baby & my main concern is blogging! What they don’t know is that she’s always with me & even if she’s not, that’s up to me not them! Haters πŸ˜›

      thank you for your sweet words & god bless Banoota πŸ˜‰
