The title of the post would have already given a glimpse of what’s about to come. I am not alone in my struggle to determine if I am Queen of Diamonds or Laundry. Women across the globe would agree with me.
Have a kid they said, it will be fun they said. No one mentioned the never ending laundry. With a load in the washing machine already running, the pile keeps mounting. It’s been ages since I have since an empty laundry basket. The happy toddler is exploring the world and learning new things. And, as a mother nothing brings me more joy than an active kid. But, the mess it messy!
There was a time when I wanted to be the queen with a crown & diamonds. The evenings were to be spent with a glass of wine. Those evening gowns has been replaced with food stained shirts. The glass of wine turned into bottle of warm milk for the kid. I loved the weekend plans that started on Friday night & continued till Monday morning. Even today I would happily hop on the next flight available & go to a far off land for a vacation. Am I guilty if I miss those impromptu plans?
Before you start judging me I should clarify that I am happy being a mother. My kid is the center of my universe & keeps me entertained. Even while I am writing this post he is sitting besides me & singing his version of lullaby to get me to sleep. On a second thought, why should you even judge me! 😉
I am not a queen of diamonds but I am queen with all the riches that I need. A healthy child whose smile is more precious than diamonds. The pile of laundry & the mess around keeps me assured that my child is meeting all development milestones. And, his small efforts to clean his high chair after having food or carrying his empty bowl to the sink shows that he is learning all things right. Above all, Mr. Hubby does laundry half of the time in our house. 🙂
There is no other palace that I would like to live in!

A very candid post straight from a mother’s heart. At times motherhood is an overwhelming experience but it’s all worth when u see that innocent smile and sweet face.

I am yet to be a mother but can understand the stress related to laundry. We have divided our chores and outsourced a lot of the manual labour to cut down on the mundane generated stress.

Dividing the chores is an effective way to manage kids. 🙂
Thanks for visiting.

Welcome to the world of laundry! Your kid is small and my whole family is big then also I am never free of putting clothes into machine. My laundry basket is always full and if by chance it is empty we call for a party.
Dishki(1st October 2019 - 01:21)
Ha ha, that’s a great reason to party Geethica. Thanks for visiting. 🙂
