Types of Mommies- 2

As promised, here I come with my follow up to Types of Mommies-1. Try and remember which ones have you seen around recently.

Forgetful Mama

Well, the first picture that struck me is that of “Home Alone.” It may be just a movie, but believe me there have been times where I have lost track just like she did in the movie. There’ll be panic moments as well as bliss filled ones. But hey, don’t let this make you believe you’re careless or you aren’t bothered about your child.

Note: Don’t blame it on your memory. It can happen when we get caught up multi-tasking. How does one deal with it? Organize. Check. Repeat.

Worried mama

She’ll think of all the possible flu-types at her child’s one sneeze. She’ll call up the pediatrician even before her child sneezes the second time. Well, you can already paint a picture about how paranoid a worried mom is.

Note: Worried Mama’s worry not.

The health freak mama

She sets a food regime for everyone in the family. When it comes to her child, she is extra-cautious. Protein supplement. Check. Fats, Fibres, Fruits, Leafy veggies. All check. Yes, she’ll take the effort to even check on her child’s potty patterns.

Note: Health is wealth, no doubts. Sometimes being laid back and watch your child squeeze an extra scoop of their favorite ice-cream is no crime.

Sigh! Motherhood is quite an achievement, isn't it? Considering we’re conferred upon a title? On a reflexive note, I take the courtesy to say that there isn't a hard and fast rule to these categories.  We’re quite capable of encompassing two, three or even more of these types.

As I write this, I wonder how my kids think of me. I definitely plan on taking a self-analysis regime. After all motherhood is an art and we’re free to experiment. As I already mentioned, these are tentative categories. I am sure as you read this and recall the previous ones, you’ll definitely come up with a few more to add to the list.

    The post is great ... the outfit is super. Damn, what's with the fashion of the times we live in. When I see these pix from the 60s, I think we get a raw deal. Raksha, how about something on dresses?

  • Great write-up. I think this has shaped up really well. I was quite curious that you'd not mentioned forgetfulness in your previous post. But here it is.
    I have loads of stories on this account. And I am not the only one. You're also bang on about "Home Alone". Ha, ha ... a classic. When I'm travelling from Delhi to Mumbai, you have to see me!

    Raksha, Congrats on a great follow-up post. I am soooo the "Health Freak Mama" - it's scary. But I have a strong bias to maintaining that streak in me. We are what we eat - isn't it so? Any gardener will tell you that the flowers and plants respond to music. If that's scientific, surely food is more central and critical an input to our well being.
    So with that, while I laugh at myself for being paranoid, I also rationalize that after all - it is a constructive obsession!
