Home Maker!

Recently I moved to a new place as a paying guest with a 5 member family.A father,Mother,a 6 year old,a 3 year old and a one year old and a maid.I have been amazed at times how the mother of the three children looks after the whole family in-spite of working as a full time executive.I have never seen her sit idle.She gets up (which I assume as I am not awake so early in the morning) at 5 and prepares breakfast and lunch for her husband.When I wake up,I see her cleaning the kitchen and sipping a tea and ready for the next task.Maid is still peacefully sleeping as her work time starts only after the Mother leaves for office.The lady now wakes up her elder son,which again is a difficult task and make him ready for the school.At times I see all three kids awake at the same time and the house is is echoing in the cranky morning songs.When one needs milk,other demands chocolate and it truly amazing to watch the lady deal with all the three kids and satisfy their needs.After sending the elder one to school ,she drops the 3 year old to play school on her way to work.
I see her come back from work really tired and before even she could even sit in a sofa,the complaints and demands starts.She then moves to kitchen to prepare dinner for the whole family and cleans the whole chaotic apartment.Then her next role as a tutor starts.Its time for looking after the homeworks of the kids.She now turns into a teacher.Its indeed a patience tester,to teach a kid when the other two are playing in the same room.After the hard fight,she waits for husband to return and gives him dinner and put the children to sleep with their bed time stories.The clock now ticks 11..I am sure she gets up in between the sleep everytime when they cough or cry in their sleep.Somedays I wonder if she ever gets to sleep when the kids are sick.
That ends her day.The so called father of the three children has just one role..A working Dad.
I am amazed that most of the ladies like her are taking so many roles in life.I really admire her.I feel so proud of the working mothers.I now wonder how frustrated my mother must have felt when I used to demand stuff when she gets back from work.
Its a special gift for females.They are indeed the best managers in the world.The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world indeed.I salute all those ladies out there .. :)
