MoM – Our personal stylist/ shopper/ chef/ assistant/ trainer

Being A Working Mom Is Hard. The Pandemic Made It Even Harder. We know that mothers are often disproportionately responsible for housework and childcare. And that’s even more challenging if you’re working. Now, the pandemic has made parents working from home and children attending online classes the new norm. Mother our Personal groomer, personal assistant, personal trainer, Oh what all she had to do and what wonderful roles she plays.

Personal assistant

No, I don’t promote this role, but it fell on me when lockdown happened. Schools went online and whats app became classrooms. After joining a WhatsApp group for mothers, I found myself managing every aspect of my daughter’s schoolwork. But this is no way to equip someone for the future, I agree with this. With two school-going boys, when the school came online, I was flooded with messages. Kids were clueless on how to manage.

Check this personal assistant designed by a mom. Not just homework management moms are also appointment makers, event planners, task managers. There are lots of apps too that help you assist in this job.

    My daughter is almost 12 years now, so I have made her my personal assistant. Also, she loves to cook so she prepares her own breakfast and helped me a lot in the kitchen during lockdown. Also, she has loads of comments on my dressing style so she has started styling me.

    True, children look to their mothers when they face any problem. They know that moms will do everything they can to support children.

  10. I guess every one of us can relate to it perfectly!! With the new normal on the go, the moms have taken up this role too. And it was as hard to accept for a stay-at-home mom as for a working mom. But then, we are super mommies you know!! Took up the challenge and whoo!!

  11. It was initially fun being the personal assistant but now I’m feeling the heat

  12. Archana says:

    Yes! My mom has been all for me, my personal stylist/trainer/assistant, everything. No matter how many people accolade me, I get my solace in my mom’s thumb-ups. And the ritual continues in the next-gen too. Though I am on the other side of the table this time, I love it solely.

    I like this styling part. It is so much fun dressing up and twinning with my girl. While they’re young I don’t mind being their assistant too. Bade hone ke baad, please manage on your own! 🙂

    To all you young mums, your children never really grow up and you will be a personal assistant all your life.
