What’s good about Workin’ Moms on Netflix?

Image Source : Working Moms

As moms, I think it’s very important to find ways to de-stress ourselves as we do repetitive things day and night to show our children why it’s important to cultivate good habits. As much as we do the same things with the goal of raising good humans, it’s sometimes boring. Yes, that’s the tiny little truth not everybody will admit too.

 Motherhood, as much as it’s exciting, can be boring and monotonous. But the good news is that the boring plus the good parts don’t last forever as children grow out of each phase. Tada! Before we know it, the kids are tall and big, as we wonder what happened to the tiny humans we created not so long ago.

Anyway, coming back to the topic, I recently got hooked to a Canadian series on Netflix which is titled ‘Workin’ Moms’ which is about four working mothers who balance their personal and professional lives. It’s about mothers who love their children but also love their jobs, it’s about mothers who sometimes don’t want to have sex because they simply are not in the mood, it’s about mothers who lose connectivity with their partner but find ways to ignite the old flame, it’s about mothers who don’t judge and don’t want to be judged.

 The show clearly proves that judging or ranking mothers is a big no-no. Honestly, I have been there as a mom who has judged a fellow mom for not being at home with her kids or not choosing to breastfeed or not feeding her enough or blah blah. But I grew out of it because deep down, the fellow mom knew that what she was doing was best for herself and her child.

It’s a mother’s choice to breastfeed her child or start her baby on formula, to limit screen-time or not, to limit bedtime or not, to co-sleep or have a separate room, to send their child to daycare or not, to set rules or break rules, to sometimes just leave the children back home (supervised of course) so she can unwind herself and have a drink…the list goes on. What works for one mother doesn’t necessarily work for another. What works for one child doesn’t necessarily work for another.

But it’s human tendency to judge which is not wrong at all. Perhaps judging gives us a sense of accomplishment that what we are doing is right. But identifying these feelings quickly will let us know that every mother, new or experienced, is doing the best for herself and her child. 

Note here, it’s not only about the child always. It’s also about the well-being and happiness of the mother too.

As mothers, we share a great bond because inside, we all know that it’s hard work to raise human beings as we all sometimes lose our mind in the process. But we do collect ourselves, keep going at it until we find our ways.

If you do get a chance, do catch the show for some real good mommy entertainment. And remember, no judging!

my nocturnal adventures

It’s been a little over 24 months (counting the pregnancy days as well) since I had a night out, meaning a late night dinner, or a movie night or just a get-together post dinner. A million things change once a baby comes into a couple’s life. In fact, nothing is ever the same. Though I haven’t really found the time (a mom’s clock is now monitored by her baby) to actually ponder over such things, there are these quiet moments of ‘just me and my athletic mind’ in which I sit down and fret over the things that I miss. But I don’t really fuss for too long, because there is always “someone” who needs you almost 24/7 and I have to practically pull myself together every single day to cater to the needs of this little tiny human being who is now the center of my world.
Anyway, it so happened that this little human whom I shall call “anklebiter(AB)” because he really bites through anything these days ( his favorite, though, are humans). So, AB must have sensed that I was probably missing on a …

Welcome Baby K

I could never quite figure out when was the right time to plan a baby. But when me and my husband finally went for our first child, it felt like the right time. Though our lives changed drastically with the inclusion of a baby who has now grown into a hyperactive, ever-jumpy toddler, it took a while to get used to a life driven around a child. For the most part, it’s been fun but is also challenging to raise a child. Okay, yes, it’s not fun explaining a miniature version of yourself to brush their teeth, or take a shower or why it’s not a good idea to yell and throw stuff and stomp around the house like a roaring animal? You get the idea here!!
So, when the idea of another baby popped into my head, I was more confused than ever. You might think it’s just easier the second time because you’ve already been through it the first time. I don’t agree with it because it’s different even the second time, although you know what to expect for the most part. Knowing from the first time can either…
