Moms are zonked still are zealous humans

Motherhood is an amazing journey and it will take you through highs and lows, sunshine and rain, mountain top experiences, and dark valley difficulties. Yet, this is our calling and we need to live in zealous pursuit of being the mother that God created us to be Motherhood is unique because being a mother encompasses so many roles. She is a counselor, cook, doctor, teacher, lawyer, maid, scientist, and comforter. Moms are zealous, she is always showing a strong and energetic desire to get something done or see something succeed with her kids. She does this just to see her kids grow into great humans.

Mothers need to be everything and more, as they have the amazing opportunity to bring a tiny infant through life, protecting as they teach lessons about all the best that life has to offer. On the last day of the alphabet “Z” in the Mom’s be everything series let’s check out the roles moms play with the letter “Z”.


This job takes passion and drive. It isn’t for the faint of heart. We want to be zealous in our role – striving to get better and passionate about loving our kids. Keep your goals for your children and family in mind. Give it your all while maintaining a healthy balance.

Everyone has something that they are zealous about in life. They’re driven to pursue it because they are passionate about it. Moms are zealous,

Zoo keeper

No please don’t get me literally, but handling kids is not easy and it’s similar to taming another small animal. All the journey till y within a joint family you actually become like a zookeeper.

Z is for Zzzzzz 

Lack of sleep is something parents have all suffered through. Especially during that fateful time when they want night feeds! To be fair I think I’m massively understating it as ‘Lack of Sleep’. Full on ‘Sleep Deprivation’ covers it a bit better I think.

Sleep deprivation can cause you to do many strange things. I kept finding ham, butter etc in the cupboards, not quite sure what was wrong with the fridge! Also, I remember trying to make a cup of tea and coffee in the same cup – that was interesting. I think I actually lost a year of my life through tiredness. I’m struggling to remember anything about this time period!

  6. We stay zonked most of the time, no doubt. With so many roles to fit into, we often tend to mix them up. That day I asked my kids- how many eggs should I download (I wanted to say boil) and they made good fun of me. Badly striving for Zzzzz and yes, zookeeper … all the time. Great that despite all the feelings of exhaustion and zoning out sometimes, we manage to stay zealous about motherhood.
    Completely enjoyed this recapitulation of all the amazing roles played by mothers, with you. A wonderful series. A big shoutout to all the mothers!!
    Best wishes.

    Zonked all the time, lack of zzzzzz is part of our life now and yes zoo keeper what better word you could have found. As a mother we are zealous about everything around us. Enjoyed reading all of them.

  9. First, many congratulations Pragun for completing the A2Z challenge. I am definitely going to miss reading your post daily. Haha! Zookeeper, actually, you hit the nail in the head; moms are no less busy than a zookeeper in keeping all the kiddos at home safely, feed them carefully, and keep all the things under keen vigilance. Yes, we mothers zonk all the time, who also crave for a sound sleep.

  10. Aditi Kapur says:

    Haha….. Zookeeper is the best caption you’ve given to the mother. Kids indeed are like the animals of the zoo and it takes a hell of an effort to teach them discipline;)

  11. Ruchi Verma says:

    I just loved the ZZzzzzzz part, and the term zoo keeper so true and very much applicable to every mom!!

    Zonked is the right word all right! Motherhood is fulfilling but it can be exhausting as well. However, there is always a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

  17. Neha says:

    haha.. well said.. There was a time when I would make elaborate plans of things to do when I am free or have a leisure time. Now all I want to do is catch some sleep and read a good book in peace.

  18. I can’t stop laughing at zoo keeper and brings back memories of how my mom broughte me up. This is definitely my pick from today
